Malaysiakini - PAC returns to pre-Abdullah Badawi era as gov't controls top two posts (extracts):
I haven't fCking changed my kertuanan dictatorial spots syou stupid guppies
Pakatan Harapan's progressive move to have the opposition head the Public Accounts Committee has regressed to the practice before 2004 during the leadership of Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his predecessors.
This is because the government now controls both the top positions in the committee.
Mahathir has indicated that Beluran MP Ronald Kiandee, who is now a Bersatu member, need not relinquish his post. [...]
The Alliance and BN had held both the chairperson and deputy chairperson posts from the time of Tunku Abdul Rahman until the end of Mahathir's first run as prime minister in 2003.
Things changed in 2004 when Mahathir's successor Abdullah Ahmad Badawi nominated then Kepong MP Tan Seng Giaw as PAC deputy chairperson.
This practice was continued by Abdullah's successor Najib Abdul Razak in 2013.
In its election manifesto, Harapan had promised to appoint the PAC chief from among the opposition. This was part of the coalition's move to reform Parliament. [...]
Pakatan Harapan's manifesto
Mahathir then said that Ronald need not resign, while the latter said he would follow the prime minister's directive.
This did not sit well with Harapan leaders, including DAP's Hannah Yeo and PKR's Nurul Izzah Anwar.
Mahathir, however, said on Saturday that all parties in Harapan had agreed to keep Ronald as PAC chief.
AAB made an Opposition person the Chair of PAC for transparency, accountability and fairness, Najib followed suit, Pakatan Manifesto also said an Opposition person would chair PAC, and guess what?
The fCking Leopard is back. It's back to 1981-2003 Mahathir-ism, when a member of the ruling party chaired PAC.
The old dictator has the thick skin and bloody shameless nerve to argue on childish grounds, as follows:
"Pakatan never expected him to move over. He (Kiandee) was from an opposition party before. When we picked him to be PAC chairman it means we stuck to our manifesto.
"But if he chooses a party of the ruling coalition what can we do. He was not chosen (to be PAC chairman) from a party in the ruling coalition, but from an opposition party."
What a moronic arsehole of an argument. And idiotic guppies voted for him.
how he treats his guppies
and those dumbos deserve it
Not only that, he kerbau kaukau when he claimed all parties in Pakatan have agreed to keep Kiandee as PAC chief even though that frog is no longer in the Opposition but now in Mahathir's Pribumi.
Hannah Yeoh doesn't agree to it and more drastic, Nurul Izzah has resigned from PAC because she's so bloody disgusted by Mahathir's reversion to his pre AAB days of Mahafiraun-ism.
Lim KS who has been so vocal and obsessed with Najib, is now so silent about the behaviour of a man he had criticised, condemned and chastised for 30 over years.
