Kopitiam Tok-Kok (3) - Ku Li's bizarre PM-proposal?

For this Kopitiam Tok-Kok post I have only one issue to bring out.

Let's first look at TMI's Hold direct elections for PM’s post, says Ku Li (extract):

Malaysia’s current system of governance is ineffective, and the country should look at other systems such as direct elections for the prime minister's post, veteran Umno leader Tan Sri Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah said today.

He said that while the Westminster system may have worked when the country first gained independence, this was no longer the case as Malaysians now were different.

“It is completely different. So I think we have to have a relook at all of this and see whether or not we should have an elected prime minister, rather than someone who is pushed up by a party.

Ku Li has effectively called for a presidential styled election. The Constitution may have to be changed. And where will our Malay monarchs fit in with Ku Li's presidential style election proposal?

Does he know what he is talking about, or is he talking cock-a-doodle-do out of personal frustration?

Australia, New Zealand, Canada, UK, India are all doing fine with their Westminster parliamentary systems. There's nothing wrong with theirs.

It's not our Constitution-approved political system that needs changing BUT the quality, integrity, professionalism and hopefully also the dedication of our politicians, and the mindset of our people to vote intelligently like the voters of Australia, NZ, Canada, the UK and India.

Voters should not vote blindly by mob rule but with their thinking. The voters of the above-mentioned Commonwealth nations know how to punish naughty individual politician kau kau, whilst ours are mob-mobilized into, for example, ABU and such-like unthinking lamentable approaches, where we foolishly kicked out a good man like Saifuddin Abdullah for a PAS ustaz who made stupid statements that abandoned babies (through illicit births) were the result of non-Muslim events like Valentine's Day and New Year's Day celebrations.

sadly sembileh for nothing

Malaysiakini reported in 2010 in its Valentine's Day blamed for baby dumping that Nasrudin Hassan had blamed the festivity celebrations on those two days as encouraging free sex that led to ... yadda yadda yadda ... culminating in baby dumping. Nasrudin claimed rather preposterously: "It's an indication that the 'mating season' occurred during the New Year's Day celebrations."

So will the voters in Temerloh come back to their senses, and will the voters in Kajang punish those who gave them rancid satay? Indeed, how has the latter benefitted them at all?

Anyway, let's leave the voters for a while and return to Ku Li's proposal, where a scenario under his 'direct-election of a PM' could emerge as follows:

Cool-looking, kind and compassionate kaytee moc from Party A (A for Atheists' Party, wakakaka) has been voted overwhelming by 89.9% of Malaysian voters to be the dashing new PM of BolehLand. But Party C (my fave adjective and sometimes noun for looes74, wakakaka) has won 150 seats of the 222 in the Dewan Rakyat, while Party B (for Bodek) secured 25 of the remaining 72 seats. This means kaytee's Party A has won only 47 seats in the Dewan Rakyat.

Article 43 (i) of the federal Constitution says HM Yang di-Pertuan Agong appoints the cabinet by first appointing as PM a member of the Dewan Rakyat who in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the Dewan. There is no Constitutional requirement that the PM must be of any particular race or religion.

Do you think a directly-elected kaytee as PM, with 47 MPs behind him, "is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the Dewan"?

I know I'm popular, wakakaka, but surely not that popular as to command the support of my political opponents from Party B and Party C.

And even if I manage to "convince" the majority in Dewan Rakyat to support my premiership, what sort of price do I have to fork out in the wheeling and dealing? Is this what the voters want?

Thus, it has to be presidential styled election, perhaps a la the US system, where the elected president can 'no hew' (colloquial Penang Hokkien for 'ignore') the Dewan Rakyat (Congress) theoretically anyway, and appoint anyone into his Administration (cabinet), including Raja Bomoh, Waynamoorthy and Ridhuan Tee Abdullah, wakakaka.

I wonder whether Ku Li believes he is personally popular enough across the (political) board to be elected directly as PM under such a system, and thus bypass his party's several-decades long silent blockade on his ascendancy as the PM?

Ku Li has just turned 78 a month back, and by the time the Constitution is amended to enable such an election, assuming the proposal can marshal a 2/3 majority in parliament to pass into law the necessary amendments, he will be at least 83 if not more.

Has his proposal been a case of his personal frustration taking over? Isn't he proposing to throw the baby out with the bath water?

As if the above hasn't been enough, he has now proposed opening UMNO to non-Malays, a proposal made most unsuccessfully by the illustrious Onn Jaafar in 1951.

I doubt this particular proposal will even see the light of day, and if it does, I'll rename myself as Mr C Looes, wakakaka..

Aiyoyo, what next from Ku Li?

The Quickies:

The Snippets:


  1. I don't really see it as bizarre but rather self serving for Ku Li knowing cibais like chao cibai ktemoc would still be supporting ku li. My rare objections to ku li's proposal.

    The rest of your fucking write-up are bullshits anyway so long that Najib and her husband, rosmah mansor still in power.

    Come to think of it..........shits already happen since 1957. If not, chao cibai kaytee.......fucking explain to me why in the 50s and 60s, 2/3 of parliamentary seats reserved for the melayu.

    But then cibais like you loved to be screwed, then so be it but please don't insult others for voting intelligently as this cibai lopsided system would culminate in cibais like rosmah mansors ruling over us for 1000 years.

    Perhaps, we should learn from the catholics in northern ireland

    Or the blacks in America who only constitute 10% of US population.........How they got it.......Hisham Rais's way........hit the street

    1. cibai looes has an obsessive fascination and fixation on Rosmah Mansor hence his puerile comments in this post which does not mention nor involve Najib nor his wife

      like a stunted juvenile anarchist he talked about insurrection a la the IRA as the way to go. has he forgotten the CT and Malayan Emergency? he is one truly chao cibai kid who is forever talking kok, wakakaka

    2. Because I subscribe to chao cibai ktemoc's view that it MUST BE FAIR and MEASURED. Since kaytee maintains ELEGANT SILENCE OVER Rosmah

  2. I quote "It's not our Constitution-approved political system that needs changing BUT the quality, integrity, professionalism and hopefully also the dedication of our politicians, and the mindset of our people to vote intelligently like the voters of Australia, NZ, Canada, the UK and India.

    Voters should not vote blindly by mob rule but with their thinking. "

    Chao cibai kaytee, what happen in australia hah?

    Hahahahahaha! I bet that cibai kaytee would argue on............the flaw of australia electoral system........There you have it. Hahahaha! What can you expect when you have pauline hanson elected into parliament? Okay la........australian voters including perhaps kaytee where some of their ancestry are descendant of.......hahaha

    Your australia senator, kaytee.......

    By the way, don't go to Scotland.........The people there had decided to massive voted SNP. It's like Jeffrey Kitingan STAR party won almost 57 seats of 60 sabah seats........Especially when you insult voters for being stupid and mindless

    Guess who is the lead actor........hahahaha.

    On second thought, following that chao cibai kaytee's logic, may lead to.......

    That happens to Lim Kit Siang's DAP in 1995 (Penang) and 1999 parliamentary......and the end result is

    I say.......Fuck Saiffuddin Abdullah........hahahaha

    See what happen if you follow cibai kaytee's strategy la......

    Her monetrist policy nearly killed britain

    The end note........

    "There are millions stupid. No matter how Najib cocked up the economy, kaytee still insist that we should save rosmah so that she can continue her shopping"......hahahahaha

    1. if you can follow the cibai looes' ramblings above wakakaka I salute you. But chao cibai looes, is Pauline Hanson in parliament [note grammar]? If not and she is not, that's how Aussie voters treat pollies who couldn't perform. Thanks for bringing up her name to prove my very point. aiyah, you're both a cibai and dumbo

  3. we need 2/3rds majority vote in Parliment before we can change the constitution, to vote directly for PM,
