IPOH, Sept 1 — Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin has slammed the opposition parties in Perak for attempting to convene a state legislative assembly sitting tomorrow.
He said that the opposition parties wanted to split the people by trying to turn Perak politics topsy-turvy despite the fact that the people had already accepted the Barisan Nasional’s (BN) rule in the state.
He said that the opposition pact of DAP, PAS and Parti Keadilan Rakyat was trying to disrupt the state’s administration as it was clear that the BN government, led by Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir, was accepted by the people.
“They have no locus standi to call for a state legislative assembly sitting as the former speaker no longer holds any post,” he told reporters after attending a reception for orphans organised by the Perak Umno Youth at the Perak mentri besar’s residence last night.
The naked truth: People don't like and don't accept. Zambry at all. They call this Mamak Pangkor as haram and you bring Ganesan - the loser who isn't a state assemblyman. (Note - he lost in the Bukit Selambau). And you need UMNO to save Ganesan's ass from being fried by the state constituition. Sure, they ain't going to throw a snap election as some claimed to be in November for sure they would be annihilated. So about you KJ? You said to ask people to accept but there are many things that people conveyed that UMNO / BN still refuses to accept. You call that as calling as acceptance?
People back in Ipoh are sick to see the billboard of Najib and Mamak Zambry around. Poorah!
PUTRAJAYA: Barisan Nasional’s Datuk Abu Hassan Shariff remains the assemblyman for the Kota Seputeh state seat in Kedah despite failing to show up for two sessions of the state assembly sitting.
The decision was made by the Election Commission after a special meeting to deliberate on the matter on Tuesday.
Chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Yusof said after deliberating the case for almost four hours, the Commission concluded that the status of the seat remained at “status quo.”
“It has been decided that Abu Hassan is still the elected representative of Kota Seputeh, as per the 12th general election’s results,” he said.
Kedah Speaker Datuk Dr Abdul Isa Ismail had on Aug 18 written to the Commission informing it of Abu Hassan’s failure to attend the sitting on April 19 and Aug 9.
Abu Hassan had said he did not attend the sittings due to medical reasons and had submitted medical chits.
Under Section 51 of the Kedah state constitution, an assemblyman who fails to attend assembly sittings twice in a row would automatically lose his or her membership and would have to vacate the seat.
Aziz said it was concluded that the sittings which Abu Hassan was alleged to have failed to attend were not “two consecutive meetings in a single session” but were in fact two separate sessions held three months and 20 days apart.
Note: Do you remember this mystery man in UMNO? I think how this guy's ass gets saved is maybe alluded to something that I've read before.

Jika begini keadaannya, apakah kita boleh yakin dan pasti pilihanraya umum akan datang SPR akan berlaku "telus dan adil" seperti motto korporat mereka. Soalnya disini siapakah Hasrizam yang dikatakan begitu berkuasa untuk mengarahkan SPR berbuat sesuatu demi menyelamatkan maruah seseorang. Siapakah rakyat Malaysia ini, yang jelas sekali tiada maruah dan harga diri itu?. Menurut sumber maklumat yang sahih, Hasnizam adalah Penasihat Undang-Undang UMNO yang amat digeruni. Kelibatnya sering dilihat tatkala ada mesyuarat khas yang melibatkan Lembaga Disiplin UMNO. Beliau sering dilihat selalu berdiri belakang Tengku Ahmad Rithaudeen. Dikalangan para peguam-peguam dan nama Hasnizam ni memang terkenal kerana dia merupakan seorang peguam yang tidak pernah masuk ke mahkamah, tapi namanya cepat melonjak kerana kaitan beliau dengan UMNO. Maka itu jelas dapat dilihat bahawa penentuan tarikh pilihanraya kecil Parlimen Bukit Gantang dan DUN Bukit Selambau semalam adalah mengikut arahan Hasrizam yang merupakan kuda tunggangan Najib Razak sebenarnya.
Najib merasa selama bila orang seperti Hasrizam melengkapkan skripnya dengan SPR. Dek kerana itulah kita tidak hairan SPR menunggu terlalu lama untuk menetapkan hari pencalonan dan juga tarikh pengundian kedua-dua pilihanraya itu. Tarikh pencalonan 29 Mac iaitu sehari selepas pemilihan UMNO jelas sekali amat memalukan dan tidak wajar berlaku. Seolah-olah nampak benar Najib takut jika pilihanraya di buat lebih awal dari itu bagi menjaga imejnya yang kian tercalar kini. Tambah mengelirukan dan memalukan ialah SPR tanpa segan silu menetapkan tarikh 7 April 2009 sebagai hari pengundian. Sedangkan beliau tahu tarikh tersebut jatuh pada hari Selasa dan bukan hari cuti am. Apakah bebalnya SPR memilih hari bekerja sebagai hari pengundian?. Bukankah ini akan menyusahkan pengundi yang bekerja dan berada di perantauan untuk mengambil cuti balik ke kampung halaman masing-masing bagi membuang undi?.

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 31 — The RON95 petrol which will replace RON97 will be retailed at RM1.80 per litre beginning tomorrow, said Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob who today launched the RON95 petrol.
RON97 is being upgraded as a premium petrol with a price of RM2.05 per litre, said Ismail Sabri.
“Petrol RON92 will be phased out given that its use is rather low that is around five per cent of the total petrol sales in the country.
“In that regard, the government has taken the step to introduce RON95 to ensure that consumers benefit directly from quality petroleum products at a subsidised price,” he said in his speech at the Nationwide RON95 Launch here today.
--Although there claims to be subsidies as what Sabri said, the statement was contradicting what Shahrir Samad said in November 2008, where subsidies were no longer there. There's something not right about the statement and I have a bad feeling that is trying to con the people into believing that there's subsidy.
This is an economic hit man's plan. Frankly speaking, Malaysia is out of money after the stimulus package and to recuperate it, they need to impose taxes inside the petrol money that we buy. To the range of 40 to 60 sens per liter. To maximise the most of it, the RON 97 was upgraded to a premium petrol. But in actual fact, both petrols are the same; there is no noteworthy thing about performance except for the burning time.
People, are you really sick of being conned or being told of the lie, etc? Please wake up..Here's an afternote: Why did you choose Barisan Nasional in the first place when you know that they would do such thing? Devotion? Blind faith? Fear?
Even an idiot can figure this out..and I mean it!
