More questions than answers after UMNO Supreme Council meeting...

Nothing really happened following the recent UMNO Supreme Council meeting on 26/9/2008 - except the postponement of UMNO general meeting - and there is no more transition of power from PM to Mohd Najib Razak in 2010 agreement...
The UMNO general assembly has been postponed to March next year. However, the divisional meetings will continue as scheduled. - New Straits Times, 26/9/2008 ,LATEST! UMNO general assembly postponed; transition plan is off
The reason given for the postponement is to facilitate the 'transition of power'...
The postponement to March is to facilitate the transition of power. With this announcement, the 2010 transition plan ceases to exist. - New Straits Times, 26/9/2008 ,LATEST! UMNO general assembly postponed; transition plan is off
But then, nothing is certain because he still..."will be discussing it with Najib.."...
“Whatever I want to do, I will be discussing it with Najib (deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak). I do not feel pressured to making any decision or announcement,” he said after chairing an hour-long meeting of the special Umno Supreme Council meeting today. - New Straits Times, 26/9/2008 ,LATEST! UMNO general assembly postponed; transition plan is off
And
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will announce his decision whether to contest the presidency before October 9. - New Straits Times, 26/9/2008 ,LATEST! UMNO general assembly postponed; transition plan is off
So...we all have to wait until before October 9...

and noting that all UMNO Division general meetings will be held from October 9 until November 9 - and then is when the Divisions will be making their nominations with regard as to who will be President, Deputy, Vice, etc..

The hour-long emergency supreme council meeting held this morning at Umno headquarters in the Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur, also resolved to go ahead with the divisional meetings, which are scheduled from Oct 9 to Nov 9.

The meetings of the 191 party divisions, in addition to electing divisional-level leaders, will also pick the 2,500 delegates to the AGM and nominate candidates for top leadership posts. - Malaysiakini, 26/9/2008 - AGM postponed, PM may quit in March

Is Abdullah Ahmad Badawi going to be contesting for President? .....WE DO NOT KNOW...

It really puts a lot of people in UMNO - especially those who may be looking to contest for the Presidency and the Deputy Presidency in limbo..., and who will these be -- Mohd Najib, Muhyiddin Yassin, ... I believe Ku Li will not be de-railed in his quest for UMNO Presidency.

We know now that "something" -- but what will the question in the minds of a lot of people...Even those in that Supreme Council meeting seems to at a loss as to what is that something...
Leading critic of the transition plan, vice-president Muhyiddin Yassin said although there is a postponement, he hopes that members will be patient as Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has promised to announce "something" before the party divisions begin their meetings next month. - Malaysiakini, 26/9/2008 - 'Abdullah has set a new deadline'
The fact that the Division meetings are proceeding as scheduled also indicates that all may not have gone the way that Abdullah may have wanted - postponements..
"That the divisional meetings will go on (from Oct 9 to Nov 9) as planned and the division leaders can proceed with the nominations and other matters as planned."

This, he added, is the correct decision as the divisions want to go on with their own elections.

"Whatever is decided by the supreme council (today) will not interrupt the divisions' plans," said Muhyddin.- Malaysiakini, 26/9/2008 - 'Abdullah has set a new deadline'
At the end of the day - nothing really may have come out from that meeting safe the postponement of the UMNO general assembly to March next year - BUT by November 9 this year, we will know who has got what nominations. We will know whether there will be contest for the Presidents and the Deputy Presidents post...

Possibly the delaying of the general assembly to March - is to give the time to resolve matters if more that one candidate qualifies to contest for the position of President and Deputy President...

So maybe it will be back to the members to decide - or rather at least nominate ...

After that they may be discussions and maybe some may withdraw - and there may be no elections for the top 2 posts...

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi wanted to be PM until mid-2010 -- and would pride allow him to abdicate the Premiership so much sooner? There is no way of telling what will happen at the Division levels? Maybe, he will contest for Presidency and then see what happens when the nominations all come in?

Why did he suddenly take Defence Ministry from Mohd Najib Razak?
Why did he suddently hand over 1st Finance Minisiter to Mohd Najib Razak ---- remembering always there is that 2nd Finance Minister as well, who is more well-versed with matters of Finance?
Was it a promotion or a demotion?
Was it an indication that Mohd Najib Razak was moving up OR was it an indication that he was on the way out?

Remember also the Pahang UMNO was not there reiterating support for PM, DPM..transition plans, etc...

We will all wait and see what happens in UMNO - and this may no more be importantto Malaysians if BN is no more the government, and Pakatan Rakyat forms the new government.

Anyway possible UMNO President-in-waiting, Tengku Razaleigh had this to say about all that happened:-

In a press statement this afternoon, party veteran Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, who is vying for the president post, slammed both Abdullah and Najib over the power transfer plan.

ku li tengku razaleigh interview 241106 assurance"I think I speak for the country when I say we are embarrassed at the sight of two grown men playing this endless children's game of 'yours and mine' with the most important responsibility in the land, oblivious of the law, oblivious to the damage they are doing to the nation.

"Instead of a national economic plan or any kind of reform all the Umno leadership has given us since March 8 is a transition plan designed to save two individuals from the inconvenience of facing elections. Their personal careers appear to be more important than the future of the nation." - Malaysiakini, 26/9/2008 - 'Abdullah has set a new deadline'

What was said by Ku Li is very real. It seems both the PM and DPM are more concerned of their political survival rather than the real issue facing the nation.
UMNO members must wake up from their slumber to save the party.Or otherwise BN should just surrender the government to Pakatan Rakyat so that Malaysia can be prepared to face the global economics and financial turmoil which is approaching fast.
With all the news going round on the world econs and financial slowdown, we can't afford to have this stupid power struggle. PM and DPM are not fair to the rakyat as at the end of the day it is the rakyat that is going to suffer.So wake up UMNO Supreme Council.

Come October 2008 there is nothing left but the Opposition Leader's Post to Hand Over from Flip Flop to C4 ok???

There should be no peace for Botak if the ISA detainees are not released and the oppressive draconian law is not abolished because such injustices are not tolerated and thus create great discontentment in this modern society. One day Botak and his cohorts should be made to eat their own medicine for the injustices they have committed against the detainees especially RPK

We call upon all the Rakyats of Malaysia to sign a Petition to be sent to the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong to release RPK from his detention under ISA because there is a hidden agenda of a conspiracy of using his detention to silence him so that he could not further release more evidences against the real C4 murderers of Altantuya because all the accused were all fall guys of the real murderers because they all did not have a real & logical motive to murder the Mongolian Lady.

THE NEW DAWN OF MALAYSIA HAS COME & THE FIRST THING IS TO ALLOW APPEALS & THEN RELEASE ALL ISA DETAINEES, ABOLISH ISA, OSA, SEDITION OR WHATEVER ACTS THAT COULD BE EXPLOITED AND MADE PREJUDICIAL AND OPPRESSIVE TO THE VOICE OF DISSENT FROM ALL THE RAKYATS.

It is very easy to generate Police Reports against DSAI by using Penang Mamak Umno’s 25 Members headed by Wan Abidin Zain, who claimed to be non-partisan, using their uneasiness that most Penangites will now be boycotting Nasi Kandar one more round???

It is very Sad that the legacy of Malaysian Independence is reduced by this Moronic Flip Flop Coward into great disrepute and a laughing stock of the whole world and knowing very well that the UMNO Government has technically collapsed and they have lost locus standi to govern but yet he has decided to shamelessly still cling on to power via dubious means like hiding himself via using of the ISA and we cannot imagine that the Malaysia Moronic Flip Flop Coward has now stoop so low and using the Police Deputy IGP as his willing tools especially the Deputy IGP’s clearly taking side as the Police must be neutral and should be not politiking for him.

The Coward Moronic Flip Flop Chicken dare not meet DSAI face to face to settle matters but chose hiding under the use of ISA and that is what you have as a disgraceful cowardice leader for UMNO.

After 51 years MALAYSIA IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE but backwards because of the Oppression from the UMNO goons’ divide and rule fear tactics the Rakyats have matured & you must see all this coming because All The Rakyats of Malaysia are all fed-up & can no longer with-stand the hypocrisies, bullshits, lies and deceits of these UMNO Clowns now in Power ok??? What Oil Subsidies IS nothing but a hoax that the UMNO Government MAKE BELIEF THAT THERE IS AN OIL PRICE SUBSIDY TO THE PRICE OF FUEL BUT IN FACT THERE WERE NONE THIS IS BECAUSE MALAYSIA IS THE NET EXPORTER OF OIL THAT IS ONLY AFTER DEDUCTING DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION THE BALANCE IS EXPORTED TO EARN FOREIGN EXCHANGE. THESE LIARS MAKE US BELIEVE BY CONTINUOUS PROPAGANDA THAT THERE ARE OIL PRICE SUBSIDY BUT IN FACT THERE WERE NONE BECAUSE THE PRICE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACTUAL SALE LOCALLY AND THE PRICE THEY INTENDED TO SELL ABOARD IS AN OPPORTUNITY COST NOT PRICE SUBSIDY.

We urge all BN Components MPs with a conscience to do the necessary to make possible a New Malaysia for all Rakyats of Malaysia so that all our children and their children & their children’s children’s future will be safe and secured in the Country we all love and not be intimidated by those UMNO Clowns now in power with their oppressive & fear tactics and in the verge of making Malaysia a Police State if left unchecked otherwise. Save RPK as he is the midst of a conspiracy of the real murderers of Altantuya to silence him for good, instead of being C4ed he could be poisoned and worse off if he is on hunger strike by himself. The Acting IGP is defending the Police position after being made the tools of UMNO’s fear tactics & so he is now making lame excuses for being the Stringed Puppet to be easily manipulated by the Puppeteer, power that be. The Deputy IGP must be held personally responsible for the safety of RPK who has been heard to be tortured otherwise he must be made to eat his own medicine come the New Dawn of Malaysia.

Moronic PeeM and Botak Home Minister last minutes’ attempts to cling on power by using the fear tactics of using the ISA at their whims and fancies selectively against dissent & tried to deny their own actions as they now have no balls to face the wrath of the all the Rakyats of Malaysia. ONE DAY THE MORONIC BOTAK AND FLIP FLOP AND C4 MUST BE MADE TO TASTE THEIR OWN MEDICINE OK?

All Rakyats of Malaysia will see to that these Clowns will be thrown out soon come the New Dawn of Malaysia & that all Rakyats of Malaysia will welcome the New Malaysia on Malaysia Day 916, 2008 for a Malaysia for All Malaysians.

Justice MUST BE DONE for Altantuya and for all those detained under ISA without the trial nor the rights of appeal. Light-up a Candle in the Lantern of the Mid-Autumn Festival for them all to usher in the NEW DAWN OF MALAYSIA COME 916, 2008

There must be a contest. UMNO is not Pak Lah's and Najib's private property.

The only hope fpr the Party is for Ku Li to win the Presidency and Muhyiddin becoming the Deputy. Muhyiddin does not impress me but he is best of the lot.

The top priority for Ku Li on being elected President is the economy. Releasing the ISA detainees will pave the way to improving it.

MAHATMA GANDHI ON NON-VIOLENT ACTION AND CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE

"Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the state has become lawless or corrupt. And a citizen who barters with such a state shares in its corruption and lawlessness...Every citizen is responsible for every act of his government...There is only one sovereign remedy, namely,non-violent non-cooperation."

"Coercion cannot but result in chaos in the end."

"One who uses coercion is guilty of deliberate violence."

"Coercion is inhuman..."

"Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with good..."

"All through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall, always."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internal_Security_Act_(Malaysia)

The fifth Prime Minister of Malaysia, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, went on the record in 1988 to state "If we want to save Malaysia and Umno, Dr Mahathir (then Prime Minister) must be removed. He uses draconian laws such as the Internal Security Act to silence his critics." The year before, he had also stated "Laws such as the Internal Security Act have no place in modern Malaysia. It is a draconian and barbaric law."
