What's the REAL reason Dr Bari has been rejected as a MPAJ councillor?

TMI - Setback for Aziz Bari after name dropped from Ampang Jaya councillor list (extracts):

DAP's Dr Abdul Aziz Bari will not be a local councillor as widely expected, after finding his name dropped from the list of candidates who are to take their oaths today.

The law professor, who joined the largely Chinese opposition party in July last year, was touted as a candidate for the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ), in preparation for an eventual run as an election candidate.

However, contacted by The Malaysian Insider yesterday, Aziz confirmed his name was not among among those scheduled to take their oaths.

"Yes, that's correct. I could not find my name on the list when I went to the MPAJ office to check in order to prepare for (the ceremony)," he said.

DAP, with a quota for six MPAJ councillors, had named Aziz one of them.

However, only the other five names were listed for the oath-taking.

The move to reject Aziz as councillor is believed to be made on technical grounds, as he does not live in Ampang Jaya, but under the Selayang council area.

But this has rarely been an issue as candidates have crossed that hurdle with an address in the area.

Aziz had put down an address in Bukit Antarabangsa as his home address.

Kena sabo kah? The Selangor State government or better still, its MB, should investigate into the admin mess-up and clarify, at least to clear up the fishy stink from the air!

It would be f**king ironical and an obscene treacherous travesty of justice in coalition fairplay that a DAP nominee gets blocked from a councillor position while non-Pakatan PAS people are enjoying such positions within a Pakatan-ruled state.

Just a reminder, Dr Bari was formerly in PKR but decided he could serve the people better by being a DAP member.

Mid-last year TMI reported Dr Bari saying: ... given his involvement with Penang Institute as a fellow, he had come to realise that DAP was an efficient, principled party based on meritocracy.

"In the opposition alliance, DAP has the most number of parliamentary and state seats and this gives me the confidence that they have the strength and confidence to get ahead."

"I hope my involvement in the party can help speed up things for the opposition to get to Putrajaya," he said at the DAP headquarters in Kuala Lumpur ...

Incidentally, last year too, Tumpat MP Kamaruddin Jaafar left PAS and joined PKR as its political director.

Wan Azizah had then said: “We welcome and are heartened by the inclusion of Datuk Kamaruddin Jaafar,Tumpat MP."

I wonder what was her reaction 2 months earlier when Dr Bari left her party to join DAP?


  1. Local councillors should be elected by the residents of the area.
    That is the biggest hole in Malaysian governance.
    For many people, the local government is effectively "the government" because their portfolio is where most of the day-to-day concerns and problems that ordinary working people face.

  2. It is the fucking dwarf and PKR politics at it's worst.A blurdy fuckup party soon to join the ranks of mosquitoes like buang sampah,mabuk kakis and buka kakis types.Good riddance to bad garbage.

    1. Anwar is your only hope, Bruno. You must campaign hard for your idol to be released from prison. There is still hope. Hehehe.

    1. y padan muka? bari do n say thing like a man, unlike hadi, sampai sekarang pun tak berani cakap terang terang dia sokong najib.

  4. So sorry....but really I don't have a lot of sympathy for this Lallang's predicament.....

  5. If by any way,I am able to campaigned to get Anwar out,my matey,tokio rain,will be waiting patiently,to blow flying kisses to you know who the moment he stepped out of the gates.But on second thoughts I wouldn't do such things.Anyone who breaks the law,must serve their time.Full time,of course minus good behaviour.Hehehe.

  6. Ampang is in Selangor, not in Penang. As Bruno said.. go figure lah! Wakakaka...

    1. In the Pakatan-led Selangor state government, the DAP holds the most number of seats. Whoever (in Pakatan) sabo-ed DAP's nomination of Dr Bari as a councillor has shown bad intent, gross jealousy, and ill-will towards a Pakatan component party. I have my suspicion of who's capable of such petty sabotaging

    2. KT... not from Pakatan lah! Dr Bari is a Malay. He must learn to be polite and courteous especially to the 'elders'. Baca apa yang tersirat la KT sayang..

    3. enemy of the state ma, perhaps they deserve it? u dun read rpk on dap ka? wakaka
