  1. Looks like here we go again... A reshuffle? Dissolve ?
  2. KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has resigned, sources told The Straits Times on Monday (Feb 24), but the shock move is likely to be followed by declarations of support for him to continue in power until the end of the current parliamentary term. The Prime Minister's Office has confirmed in a statement that the resignation letter was sent to Malaysia's King at 1pm. Speculation that Tun Dr Mahathir tendered his resignation gained steam on Monday afternoon, a development which several Pakatan Harapan (PH) officials confirmed. But the move is likely to have been tactical, with a view to undo the PH transition agreement under which Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was supposed to replace the 94-year-old incumbent before the next election due in 2023. "Nope, the Agong will reject the resignation saying Mahathir has the support from the majority of Parliament," a source said, referring to Malaysia's King. However, there is no certainty that the King, who is meeting Mr Anwar at 2.30pm, will agree to this. Another PH source said that the Palace was already presented with the necessary declarations on Sunday night, but the delay may have been due to unresolved negotiations over government positions between those forming a new coalition tentatively called the National Alliance that is supposed to include opposition parties such as Umno and Parti Islam SeMalaysia. Meanwhile, another 11 MPs from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), which has 50 lawmakers in Parliament, announced on Monday that they were leaving the party and PH to form an independent bloc.

  4. http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/08...m?section=world Malaysia's Anwar contests by-election Posted 3 hours 57 minutes ago Malaysia's leading opposition politician Anwar Ibrahim is contesting a crucial by-election today which is expected to return him to the national Parliament a decade after he was forced out. Dr Anwar was deputy prime minister of Malaysia until a decade ago, when he had a falling out with then-prime minister, Mahathir Mohamed. He was sacked and then jailed for sodomy and corruption, serving six years in prison. His sodomy conviction was quashed, but now Dr Anwar is facing a new set of sodomy allegations which he says have been brought by his political enemies. He now heads up the People's Alliance, a group of opposition parties which is challenging the ruling party for the first time since the country's independence 50 years ago. He has been campaigning on the economy and a platform of equality for Malays, Chinese and Indians. The polling group Merdeka is predicting an easy win for Dr Anwar. -------------
  5. Malaysians are likely going to protest again. Just in time for his by-election. I thought Malaysia Judicial system very independent one? LOL. You think the Malaysians will protest near Merlion again? http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-26479642 Malaysia: Anwar Ibrahim sodomy acquittal overturned A Malaysian court has overturned the acquittal of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim on sodomy charges, upholding a government appeal. Mr Anwar led the opposition to its strongest ever performance in the May 2013 general elections. While homosexual acts are illegal in Muslim-majority Malaysia, very few people are ever prosecuted. Mr Anwar has always maintained the charges were part of a political smear campaign. The court decision may affect Mr Anwar's plans to compete in a key by-election in the state of Selangor this month. His lawyers are expected to appeal the court ruling, Reuters news agency reported. 'Selective persecution' In 2008, Mr Anwar was accused of having sex with a male aide. A High Court cleared him of the charges in 2012, citing a lack of evidence. The government later appealed against his acquittal. Ahead of the court decision, rights group Human Rights Watch called the government appeal a "travesty of justice". The group said it was a sign of Prime Minister Najib Razak's "selective persecution of his political opponents". Correspondents say Mr Anwar is seen as the key challenger to the ruling party, which has been in power since Malaysia's independence in 1957. The ruling Barisan Nasional coalition won 133 of the 222 seats in parliament in the 2013 elections - although it won the elections, it was the coalition's worst ever result. Thousands of Malaysian opposition supporters rallied against the result, alleging that the polls were fraudulent. Mr Anwar was previously a member of the Barisan Nasional coalition, but fell out with top leaders and was sacked in 1998. He was then charged with sodomy and corruption, and given a six-year jail term for abuse of power, which sparked huge street protests. In 2000 he was also found guilty of sodomy with his wife's driver and jailed for a further nine years. In late 2004 Malaysia's Supreme Court overturned the sodomy conviction, freeing him from jail. He then emerged as a leader in the opposition movement, leading it to increasingly strong performances in both the 2008 and 2013 elections.

    Driver Pah Anwar, Tio Fined 2K

    http://www.asiaone.com/News/Latest%2BNews/...222-329471.html SINGAPORE - A 57-year-old man was fined $2,000 on Wedneday for punching a parking warden on the face, said the Straits Times. Former delivery driver, Seah Kok Hor, admitted to hurting Mr Anwar Sam Samat, 36, at the carpark of Block 122 and Block 123 Bukit Merah Lane. On Feb 17, 2011, Mr Anwar went to the carpark after receiving a complaint of vehicles parking illegally there. When he saw Seah's vehicle parked in a 'No Parking' lot, he issued a parking summons. When Seah saw Mr Anwar checking other vehicles, he became unhappy and angry. Then Seah gave Mr Anwar a punch on the face. The victim tried to block his punch. During a scuffle, both fell. The victim then called his control room to report the matter. Seah, who pleaded for leniency, could have been jailed for up to two years and/or fined up to $5,000 for voluntarily causing hurt.
  8. Feb 16, 2011 Anwar's trial: Medical form states sodomy was 'attempted' KUALA LUMPUR - MOHD Saiful Bukhari Azlan's medical proforma (form) stated that he was subjected to 'attempted' sodomy, the High Court heard on Wednesday. Hospital Kuala Lumpur Emergency Care Specialist Dr Khairul Nizam Hassan, when cross-examined by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's counsel Karpal Singh, agreed that the proforma stated 'attempted' sodomy and 'attempted' oral sex. 'So, there could not have been penetration. It says here, it's attempted,' Karpal said, grilling Dr Khairul on Wednesday. However, Dr Khairul maintained that Mr Saiful never used the word 'attempted' when he was interviewed by the doctors. In the proforma, which was made available to the press on Wednesday, it was also noted that there was 'full penetration', with 30 minutes of coitus. PKR adviser and Datuk Anwar, 63, is on trial for allegedly performing carnal intercourse against the order of nature on Saiful at a condominium unit in Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, between 3.15pm and 4pm on June 26, 2008. -- THE STAR/ANN Attempted but not successful.

    Anwar to be new Malaysia PM?

    PETALING JAYA: Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has claimed that more than 31 Barisan MPs have agreed to cross over to Pakatan Rakyat. He, however, refused to reveal the names of the 31 MPs. Anwar told a press conference at the PKR headquarters in Petaling Jaya on Tuesday that he would do so when he meets the Prime Minister. The Permatang Pauh MP also claimed that the transition to the new Government has been delayed a few days pending the meeting with Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to ensure a smooth and peaceful transition. He said it was up to Abdullah to agree to the meeting and its date. In a letter submitted to Abdullah on Monday, Pakatan had made four demands to ensure a smooth transition: 1) That Barisan does not hinder or prevent the MPs from acting in accordance with their conscience and judgement; 2) That the Barisan government should not invoke the Internal Security Act to detain the MPs or any other current Pakatan MPs; 3) That Barisan government does not invoke emergency laws or police powers or suspend the Constitution or dissolve Parliament; and 4) That the Barisan government shall not impose roadblocks or impede MPs from going to Parliament or any institution of government. ________________________________________________________________________________ _________ Latest news from Malaysian daily this afternoon....dunno got hao siao or not??
  10. http://www.bernama.com/bernama/v5/newspolitic.php?id=359549 Sept 16 - The Bomb That Never Exploded By S. Retnanathan KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 16 (Bernama) -- Soon after the general election on March 8 this year, the date Sept 16 began to top conversations, be it at coffeeshops or lobbies of five-star hotels. Every opportunity that the man-on-the-street found to strike a conversation with someone from a political party, even if that someone was just an ordinary member, the date almost always came to the fore. Sept 16 was the date most referred to by the media in the last six months, so much so that even those who were oblivious to Malaysian politics, or politics as a whole, latched on to it as if it was some feel-good medication. The date became a focal point after Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dropped a bombshell less than a month after the general election, claiming he had enough Barisan Nasional (BN) members of parliament (MPs) wanting to cross over to the loosely formed pact of PAS, DAP and PKR dubbed Pakatan Rakyat (PR), by that date. Anwar had also insisted that the opposition coalition would "take over" Putrajaya, the federal administrative capital, on Sept 16. He reinforced his prediction after winning the Permatang Pauh parliamentary by-election last month, this time taking it a step further by stating that he had a "comfortable number" of BN MPs to ensure a smooth crossover to enable PR to take over the government, which had been in the hands of the BN since the nation gained independence 51 years ago. "Yes. We have an adequate number, especially from Umno (the backbone of the BN). The understanding is that I will announce (the crossovers) after my return to Parliament," he trumpeted then. Anwar made his return to Parliament on Aug 28, two days after he had won Permatang Pauh, still adamant about not wanting to divulge details of the so-called defections and only saying that he was on track to achieving the elusive dream of forming the next federal government. "I will only name them at the right time. That is the understanding ... agreement with my friends (the BN MPs concerned)," said Anwar on Sept 6 in Jakarta, steadfast that his dream of forming the next Malaysian government would materialise on Sept 16 and that he faced no problem in achieving this. In the March 8 general election, the ruling BN suffered an unprecedented defeat, losing four states -- Kedah, Penang, Perak and Selangor -- and failing to recapture Kelantan which remained in the hands of PAS. It also lost its two-third majority in parliament when it won 140 seats. The Opposition had 82 seats. In any other country, this 58-seat majority would be regarded as huge and would not have raised any concern. But in Malaysia, alarm bells started ringing because never in the history of the BN has its majority been sliced to this level. The opposition needed just 30 seats or so to "topple" the BN government and form a new government with a simple majority of 112 seats. Of the 140 parliamentary seats won by the BN, Sabah and Sarawak contributed 54 or nearly 40 per cent, and this is what Anwar exploited in the beginning. Soon after announcing that he had the BN MPs, the former deputy prime minister, who was sacked from the government in 1998 on sodomy and misuse of power charges, claimed that the bulk of his defecting MPs would come from these two East Malaysian states. However, with Sept 16 nearer at hand, he said those in power would be surprised that the MPs would be mostly from Umno or other peninsula-based BN component parties. This charge by Anwar was dismissed by the present government led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, allaying fears that BN MPs were ready to switch camps. Even at a gathering Monday night at the Kelana Jaya stadium in Petaling Jaya, attended by some 12,000 ardent supporters, Anwar insisted once again that he had the sufficient majority to form the government. He also claimed to have sent a letter to Abdullah Monday afternoon on the list of BN MPs who would cross over to Pakatan Rakyat. But there was no such list. Anwar, the Opposition leader in parliament, said at a news conference Tuesday he wanted to meet Abdullah to ensure that the prime minister handed over power in a "peaceful" manner and promise that the government would not invoke the Internal Security Act to detain any MP who wanted to join PR. This was the Sept 16 he had talked about over the last six months. There were no names, no list or any announcement of any MP crossing over but only insistence that he would form the government and that he wanted a smooth transition of power. He now wants to meet Abdullah to ask the prime minister not to declare a state of emergency or damage the economy when in fact his (Anwar's) actions over the last few months had created doubt among investors. Abdullah, in the meantime, has been going about his duties unperturbed by Anwar's claims. At a news conference Tuesday, Abdullah said the BN government was strong and would continue to discharge its duties to the people. Abdullah told the people not to be swayed by the propaganda of the opposition that it would take over the government, and described Anwar's plan to take over the government Tuesday and become the prime minister as a mere dream. Abdullah said it had always been Anwar's trademark to say things to attract public attention and that after his failure today, he (Anwar) would change the date. Asked of the worries expressed by the people on the current political development, Abdullah said there was nothing to worry about as it was merely a political deception by Anwar. "I am sure (the government of) Sept 16 will not happen. Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is banking on our party members to leave us but our people will not desert us," the Umno president and BN chairman had been reported as saying earlier. PKR also took the political drama to a different level when it sent five senior party leaders to "chase" after some 49 BN MPs who flew to Taiwan on Sept 7 on a week-long agriculture study tour. Tian Chua, the PKR information chief who led the five, said before leaving the country that the opposition team would try to meet the BN MPs in Taipei but fell short of saying why they wanted to meet the BN MPs. Anwar's repeated claims that he would set up government by today only fuelled talk that the opposition leaders were hot on the heels of the BN MPs with the intention of coaxing them over to the opposition. Some observers view the latest action of Anwar as an effort to destabilise the present government using "political fear tactics". There are also claims that he wanted to divert public attention from his ongoing sodomy case where he is accused of having sodomised his former aide, Mohamad Saiful Bukhari Azlan. Despite repeated denials from BN MPs, including those from Sabah and Sarawak, ministers, leaders of the BN coalition and those associated with the nation's corridors of power, Anwar had insisted that he would make it (form the government) by Sept 16. Observers also believe that if Anwar did indeed have the numbers, PR members would have marched to Istana Negara to ask the king to remove Abdullah as the prime minister. But as the day dawned, it seemed like Anwar had dropped an empty bombshell in the days after the nation's 12th general election, and the only impact it created was a minor thud on the ground. -- BERNAMA
  11. KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysian government minister set to take part in an unprecedented live television debate Tuesday (15 July) with opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim on unpopular fuel prices rises is willing to resign if he performs badly, his aide said. Anwar, known for his oratory skills, has slammed last month's hike of gasoline prices by 41% and diesel prices by 63%, and promised to lower prices if the opposition forms the government. The government says the hikes were inevitable because the country can no longer afford the massive subsidies that kept fuel prices low for decades. Even now, fuel in Malaysia is one of the cheapest in the region. "It is my responsibility to defend and explain the government's policies," Information Minister Ahmad Shabery Cheek told the local media Monday (14 July). "If I cannot provide the people with the proper explanations, then I fail to do my job." His aide, who declined to be named citing protocol, confirmed the minister's comments, adding, "If he fails to deliver the debate tonight, it's up to the Cabinet to decide whether they need a new minister." The debate is the first involving a minister discussing government policies with the opposition on television. All mainstream media is government-linked, and opposition parties have long complained of getting no fair exposure. Ahmad Shabery has dismissed the opposition promise to reduce fuel prices as misleading. Anwar has said he wanted to debate with Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi or his deputy but would settle for Ahmad Shabery.

    Anwar : My Side of The Story ........

    As reported at CNA : Malaysia's Anwar leaves Turkish embassy refuge KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim Monday left the Turkish ambassador's residence, where he fled after being accused of sodomy, after the government guaranteed his safety. Anwar, a former deputy premier who was sacked a decade ago and jailed on sodomy and corruption charges, accused the government of concocting new sex claims by a 23-year-old male aide and said he feared an assassination attempt. "I pray enough will be done for my security," he told reporters after emerging from the ambassador's residence. Anwar said the charges were an attempt to derail his political comeback at the helm of a resurgent opposition, and came as he was poised to re-enter parliament with the backing of four defectors from the ruling coalition. "That is why they brought these allegations against me," he said. "It is an attempt to destroy my political career." The charismatic opposition leader said the new charges would be "a repeat of the 1998 fiasco" when he was hit with the sodomy and corruption counts that were widely seen as politically motivated. Anwar said he was targeted again because he had evidence that the police and attorney-general had fabricated evidence in the original trial. Anwar has said he will soon seize power with the help of defectors from the Barisan Nasional coalition which has ruled Malaysia for half a century. hee...hee...hee....., this time round no mattress seized from the condominium....

    Sodomee for Anwar again

    June 29, 2008 M'sia's Anwar denies aide's sodomy complaint KUALA LUMPUR - MALAYSIA'S de facto opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim, denied on Sunday allegations that he had sodomised an aide, saying the charges were an attempt by the government to curb his rise to power. A former deputy premier who was sacked in 1998 and later jailed for sodomy and corruption, Datuk Seri Anwar has seen a revival of his fortunes since a March poll when the opposition alliance recorded its best ever election result. He said a police report lodged against him by his private assistant, Saiful Bahari, was an attempt by the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition to discredit him. 'The police report lodged against me earlier today is a complete fabrication,' Datuk Seri Anwar said in a statement read out by his lawyer as about 200 of his supporters gathered outside the hotel where the news briefing was held. 'I believe we are witnessing a repeat of the methods used against me in 1998 when false allegations were made under duress,' he said. The charges have erupted after Datuk Seri Anwar?s spectacular return to political life at the helm of a resurgent opposition, after being sacked as deputy prime minister in 1998 and spending six years in jail on sex and corruption charges. 'This is clearly a desperate attempt by the Barisan Nasional regime to arrest the movement of the Malaysian people towards freedom, democracy and justice,' he said. 'I urge the Malaysian people to stand against the repressive forces that will be unleashed by the government in the coming days and weeks.' Lawyer Sivarasa Rasiah said Datuk Seri Anwar had not been arrested. A Kuala Lumpur police spokesman declined to comment and the Home Minister in charge of the police, Syed Hamid Albar, was not immediately available for comment. Datuk Seri Anwar has always said the earlier sodomy and corruption charges were trumped up after he fell out with then prime minister Mahathir Mohamad. Datuk Seri Anwar's opposition alliance has been snapping at the heels of Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's government as public anger against rising prices and the ruling coalition's dismal showing in the March poll fuel calls for a change in leadership. -- REUTERS, AFP http://www.straitstimes.com/Latest%2BNews/...ory_252879.html
  14. Monday June 30, 2008 Cops: OCPD in sodomy bid By R.S.N. MURALI KUALA TERENGGANU: Two police lance corporals have lodged reports alleging that their chief, an OCPD of a rural district in Terengganu, attempted to sodomise them, on two separate occasions. In the first report made on Thursday, the 22-year-old cop claimed that he was sleeping at the OCPD
