The woman who would be king ... maker?

FMT - Khalid trashes Chin’s criticism of new Pakatan

PETALING JAYA: Pakatan Harapan’s communications director, Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad, has trashed Bersih leader Maria Chin Abdullah’s claim that the decision to form the coalition was hasty.

Speaking to FMT, Khalid said the coalition was a continuation of the Pakatan Rakyat pact, “just as much as Bersih 4 was a continuation of previous Bersih rallies.”

Asked to respond to questions regarding PAS’ exclusion, Khalid said that while it was entirely up to the Islamist party to join or shun Pakatan Harapan, the new coalition could neither wait for it to make up its mind nor plan for it.

“Pakatan Harapan can’t wait because it is not something new but a continuation of Pakatan Rakyat and the sooner we get together re-endorsing our commitment to form a new government the better,” he said.

A news report yesterday quoted Chin as saying Pakatan Harapan was launched before the three component parties – DAP, PKR and Amanah – had come up with anything concrete to offer Malaysians as an alternative to Barisan Nasional (BN).

As I once penned, Bersih under Maria Chin Abdullah has gone off track from the NGO's objective of clean and fair elections

Let's recollect what Bersih' objectives as laid out in 2011 have been. They are:
  1. Clean up of the electoral roll
  2. Reform of postal ballot
  3. Use of indelible ink
  4. Minimum 21 days of campaign period
  5. Free and fair access to mass media for all parties
  6. Strengthening of public institutions
  7. No corruption
  8. No dirty politics

WTF is Bersih doing today under Maria Chin Abdullah?

Is it Bersih 4.0's charter to depose of an elected PM?

Personally I suspected so when Bersih in the person of Maria Chin Abdullah saw it fit to praise a former RMAF officer as a hero, and for what you may asked, but for violating Armed Forces Council Instructions, yes, VIOLATING military instructions. That's Maria Chin's perception of a hero!

I had then remarked that unless someone wise up this new chairperson of Bersih the organization will soon lose its perspective, and sadly with that, all the investments made by Bersih's former leader, Ambiga Sreenevasan, which had earned Bersih 2.0 much respect and admiration, would be squandered completely by Maria Chin's new Bersih leadership.

The NGO is no longer about clean and fair elections. It has now become a mainstream political organization which seeks to depose of an elected PM. It now has only one honorable recourse - it must register itself as a political party.

Then, as if Bersih 4 had not been enough, Maria Chin Abdullah had subsequently also wanted to lobby MP to vote against Najib

That's fine but at least she should, as I had recommended, register Bersih appropriately as a political party since she has effectively changed the NGO (about clean and fair elections) into that.

Yes, Maria Chin Abdullah must make up her mind, whether to be politically active at the sharp end or to remain head of a neutral NGO which campaigns for fair and clean election.

If she intends to be head of Bersih, meaning the latter, then she should bloody well mind her own business as to whether Pakatan Harapan has been hastily formed or otherwise.

She seems to be either a confused activist which has been why I see Bersih 4.0 as a confused NGO, or as I suspect, she wants to be a political KINGMAKER, one who wants to change PM, one who pontificates pompously on the timing of Pakatan Harapan's political formation as if that's her business, one who ... god only knows what she wants next?


  1. Maria Chin's assumption is one hundred percent correct.The PH was a hastily and shobbily formed pact of political parties opposed to the Umno/BN.No wonder,contradicting statements are coming out of the horses mouths.This present pact is even worse that it's predecessor the PR.I thought that things couldn't get any worst with Anwar in Hilton,Sungei Buloh.No wonder,these so called leaders of the PH are talking and running around like headless chickens.

  2. I have to agree.The Bersih today is not the same as the previous Bersih.The old Bersih was for a fairer election.

    The present Bersih is also calling for a fairer election.But it is also fighting for a better economy,stronger MR and for the ouster for the PM Jibby.Since it has now demanded political changes,what the fuck it is not register under a political pact or party.Maybe they only want to 'shiok sendiri'.

    1. Please don't call Najib Jibby. U want to lose your monthly allowance ah? He got handsome. He got 2.6b. He got Jamal. He got Mongolian pussy. U got or not? Hehehe. Hidup ikan bakar!

  3. I think you have made a basic error in assumption, that an organisation morally has to register itself as a political party if it becomes political in its activities.

    In a healthy democracy, there should be plenty of room for political activism , without having to register as a political party.
    In USA, UK and Australia, there are thousands of political action groups, who may or may not favour any particular political party, but are not themselves registered political parties. Most are issues-based, some are "friends" of Conservatives / Socialists / Social Democrats / Liberals etc.
    People form new political parties if they have a unique platform which is different from any existing party.

    Having said that, I do not support Bersih's drift away from its original non-aligned platform.

  4. tokio rain,Hidup ikan bakar?You stand too near Jamal and ikan bakar?When the api ikan bakar got out of control,you know what will happen?It will burn the pants of Jamal,ikan bakar and yours too.And in between that precious thing of yours might get burn blue,black and purple too.Hehehe.

  5. Oooh. Got finger. Goldfinger? Finger me. Oops sorry. I meant go figure. Profusely. Hehehe. Hidup red shirts! Hehehe.

    Rulers want 1MDB probe wrapped up, wrongdoers punished

    I don't know whether people have been paying attention, but this statement from the Raja-Raja Melayu has the import of a 7.0 Richter scale earthquake.
    The Conference of Rulers NEVER issues public statements on any current issue with even vaguely political implications.

    If you take it negatively, it can be taken as an unwelcome move by the Rulers wading into the fist-fight between two UMNO camps.

    If you take it positively, it is a firm reminder to certain a person or persons who have warped all manner of government processes and institutions in the country to deflect their personal legal and political difficulties.

    1. And RPK have included the rulers' statement as one of the amusing conspiracy theories that he issues regularly.

      His story is the Keeper of Ruler's Seal have gone rogue and was putting words in the rulers' mouths. And Mahathir could be the mastermind via Sanusi Junid.

      Are the apologists getting that desperate?

    2. kita sama2 tengok siapa lagi power.

  7. Jamal calls Antony Loke a "human pig".

    Well,it takes a "human pig" to be able to call another human,a "human pig".

    What goes around comes around.Jamal,you have called your own self a "human pig".

  8. What has the raid of a watering hole in Malacca,ending in three immigration officers getting hurt got to do with "dog mentality Ali Tinju"?

    Since this pair of trouble makers,Jamal Yusof and Mohd Baharom have no life,they better go do something useful and suck each other's dick.

    1. Disgusting la. Whats the matter with u? Havent been laid since your menopause issit? You need a strong hard man. Hehehe
