Wan Saiful tegur Najib tekun 'troll' individu dalam PN

Oleh Wan Saiful Wan Jan

Saya lihat Dato Sri Najib Razak begitu tekun troll beberapa orang dalam kerajaan Perikatan Nasional, iaitu kerajaan dia sendiri. Perbuatan troll kerajaan sendiri ini sebenarnya pelik, tetapi dalam strategi “diversion” ia memang perlu dibuat.

Sekarang Najib tak perlu ulang alik ke mahkamah sebab mahkamah tutup semasa PKP ke? Bolehlah jadi Ketua Perungut Kebangsaan sepenuh masa.
Strategi utama Najib ialah “divert” perhatian kepada isu lain supaya orang lupa apa yang telah dia buat. Banyakkan rungutan mengenai kerajaan sendiri supaya perhatian rakyat dapat “divert” daripada berapa billion yang telah dirompak. Tunjukkan diri sebagai hero UMNO supaya orang UMNO sendiri lupa bahawa UMNO kalah PRU14 sebab orang marah Najib.

Yang menariknya, setiap kali saya komen mengenai dia, maka beribu cybertroopers datang serang posting saya. Ramai sungguh team Najib Razak ni ya. Kalau isteri tersayang Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor dikatakan bayar RM100,000 sebulan untuk cybertroopers, agak-agak Najib bayar berapa juta sebulan ya?

Saya hairan juga mana hilangnya Rosmah Mansor. “Can I advise you something” dibuat di rumah saja. Bagus juga Rosmah ni. Patuh SOP.
Ini pun strategi “diversion”. Bila Najib sembunyikan Rosmah, orang dah tak nampak Rosmah. Bila orang tak nampak, maka perlahan-lahan dia mahu media dan rakyat lupa mengenai kemewahan Rosmah. Maka perhatian akan “divert” ke isu lain.

Nampak macam ramai juga ahli team cybertroopers Najib ni ya. Atau adakah dengan Jajaran Baru yang dia sedang kempenkan, Najib sudah bergabung juga dengan Red Bean Army (RBA)? Saya nampak sejak Najib bawa idea Jajaran Baru ini, tahap aktiviti RBA dan team Najib hampir sama hebat.

马来西亚世界地位跌入谷底,沦为笑柄!- 吉祥 #zh

Kit Siang bersikap biadap, perlekeh titah Agong'

引自 林吉祥

马来西亚的世界地位现在真的跌入谷底,在国际圈子里沦为笑柄。

这场新冠肺炎瘟疫对马来西亚人民而言竟然也是一件好事,因着疫情而封禁国际出游,为我们免去在外国抬不起头的窘境。

我们有一个为了对抗新冠肺炎瘟疫而不惜让国家处于目前已经经过五个月的紧急状态的首相;但和其他面对疫情却没有颁布紧急状态的国家相比,我们的新冠肺炎新增病例和新增死亡病例却不断飙升。

我们的新冠肺炎累计病例在2020年11月18日位居世界第85位。然而,七个月后到昨天,我们现在以64万6411宗累计病例位居世界第39位。我们今天可能还会在排名上超越奥地利,上升到第38位。

至于每百万人口单日新增病例来说,我们在昨天打败了世界头20个新冠肺炎累计病例最多的国家中的17个,惟三的例外是巴西、阿根廷和哥伦比亚。

马来西亚目前为止已经有3684人死于新冠肺炎:其中的3133宗是发生在自2021年1月11日紧急状态颁布后的五个月内;相对余下的551宗是发生在紧急状态前,即这场疫情爆发的头12个月内。

马来西亚昨天的新冠肺炎死亡病例有84宗;而英国昨天的新增死亡病例有17宗。该国的新冠肺炎单日新增死亡病例曾经在2021年1月20日达到最高纪录,录得1823宗。

目前政府内的最高领导层暗流汹涌,仿佛慕尤丁的首相职位随时不保似的,希山慕丁和阿兹敏的组合接掌政府的谣言四起,还有流言表示东姑拉沙里会成为代理首相,以及马来西亚回归到国家行动理事会管治的时代。这些流言蜚语对于2021年的马来西亚而言来得完全不是时候,也是极为不妥当的!

我们还有一个想要马来西亚蒙受更多恶名的内政部部长,他要马来西亚成为世界上第一个惟有在人口达到对新冠肺炎的群体免疫后才召开国会的国家,即便没有人知道这个群体免疫何时才能达成。

除此之外,这个内政部部长的方针似乎在与疫苗事务协调部长的背道而驰,前者还想要针对无证移民劳工展开搜捕,完全不去考量这样子究竟会对国家疫苗施打计划造成多大后果。

我们也有一个堪称为“游花园部长”的交通部部长。他针对5月24日吉隆坡两架轻快铁列车相撞意外报告所召开的记者会,让人听了摸不着头脑,无怪乎专栏作家玛丽亚姆会撰写一篇题为“魏家祥部长应该辞职的11个理由”的社论。

魏家祥带人游花园的记者会唯一让民众可以明白的内容就是,当他表示调查委员会的职责并非在“将罪责和责任归在任何一造”,而这很显然与调查的目的自相矛盾。

交通部前部长陆兆福表示,如果他还是部长的话,他肯定会在将调查报告呈上内阁后马上公布其内容。那么魏家祥究竟在隐瞒什么?

我们更有一个既高谈阔论“关上前门”也感叹“后门尤开”的国防部高级部长。

也不要忘了我们有一个主理国家灾害防治机构(Nadma)的特别事务部长被排除在新冠肺炎灾难国家安全理事会之外,他质疑政府的抗疫手法,尤其是国家疫苗施打计划。

最后,我们现有的内阁是马来西亚史上最臃肿的内阁。其中有很多部长仿佛都是无名氏,马来西亚人民如果在国内任何地方碰见他们都不会认得出他们。

那些当政者看不到解决新冠肺炎疫情的方案就是召开国会和州议会,这实在是很可悲它简直就是国家耻辱。这个方案能够恢复民众对抗疫手法的信任和信心,所有新冠肺炎标准作业程序的反反复复、细节不定及双重标准的现象都可以因此终结,并在抗疫战中推动全国动员的“全社会”策略和模式。

不然,马来西亚人民前面的日子还会非常凄惨,而国家会继续沦为国际圈子里的笑柄。

Kit Siang: Takiyuddin is talking rubbish #en

Quit for delaying Undi18, Kit Siang tells EC chairman | Free Malaysia Today  (FMT)
Pic: Free Malaysia Today

By Lim Kit Siang

The de facto Law Minister, Takiyuddin Hassan is talking bunkum.

Where is the Prime Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin? Does he understand what he announced in his national telecast on January 12, 2021?

Is Muhyiddin the Prime Minister or can every Minister can pretend that he or she is the Prime Minister?

Takiyuddin Hassan has denied that the cabinet was “shifting goalposts” as to when the emergency period should come to an end. He said the cabinet was only “correcting” rules to help the “referee” make the right decision.

What does Takiyuddin mean what he said he was merely “correcting” the rules when he corrected the Health director-general Noor Hisham Abdullah for saying that only the king had the discretion to extend the emergency by pointing out that it was the Cabinet’s responsibility to advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong whether or not the emergency should be extended.

The constitutional rules on the “Yang di Pertuan Agong acting on advice” are crystal clear. They are set out in Article 40, as follows:

“Article 40. (1) In the exercise of his functions under this Constitution or federal law the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall act in accordance with the advice of the Cabinet or of a Minister acting under the general authority of the Cabinet, except as otherwise provided by this Constitution; but shall be entitled, at his request, to any information concerning the government of the Federation which is available to the Cabinet.

“(1A) In the exercise of his functions under this Constitution or federal law, where the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is to act in accordance with advice, on advice, or after considering advice, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall accept and act in accordance with such advice.

“(2) The Yang di-Pertuan Agong may act in his discretion in the performance of the following functions, that is to say:

(a) the appointment of a Prime Minister;

(b) the withholding of consent to a request for the dissolution of Parliament;

(c) the requisition of a meeting of the Conference of Rulers concerned solely with the privileges, position, honours and dignities of Their Royal Highnesses, and any action at such a meeting, and in any other case mentioned in this Constitution.”

However, in his national telecast on January 12 announcing the emergency proclaimed by the Yang di Pertuan Agong the previous day, Muhyiddin sought to allay reservations about the emergency as a proper remedy to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic and possible abuses of power.

This was where in his national telecast on January 12, Muhyiddin announced a Special Independent Committee and gave an implicit undertaking that it is the Special Independent Committee and not the Cabinet or the designated Minister who will advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong on whether the emergency declared on January 11 will be extended on August 1, 2021.

Strict constitutionalists would argue that the powers of the Cabinet or the designated Minister cannot be delegated, but if the Prime Minister has given an implicit public undertaking that it is the Special Independent Committee and not the Cabinet or designated Minister who will advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong “whether a major emergency still exist to continue with the period of Emergency Proclamation or terminate the Proclamation earlier than the date designated”, is Muhyiddin to dishonour such a solemn implicit public undertaking?

Had the Prime Minister been wrongly advised by the de facto Law Minister to give such an implicit public undertaking?

If it is the Cabinet or the designated Minister who is going to advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong on whether to extend the emergency on August 1, why then set up a Special Independent Committee headed by the former Chief Justice and comprising former public officials and Members of Parliament?

Where is the Prime Minister?

This is the time for Muhyiddin to speak up.

Hannah: Kerajaan takut hilang kuasa, Rakyat jadi sengsara #ms

Hannah Yeoh: possible sex education outside schools to fight baby dumping |  The Star

Oleh Hannah Yeoh

Biar Kerajaan Tewas, Jangan Biar Rakyat Tumpas – Kerajaan takut hilang kuasa, Rakyat jadi sengsara.

Pengumuman Total Lockdown Mesti Bersekali Dengan Bantuan Kepada RakyatKita hampir sahaja tidak dapat bertahan dengan perlaksanaan total lockdown selama 2 minggu namun Kerajaan mengumumkan lanjutan yang bertujuan untuk menurunkan kes positif Covid-19 yang masih tidak menunjukkan tanda-tanda penurunan. Pengumuman total lockdown tanpa bersekali dengan bantuan kewangan adalah tindakan yang tidak bertanggungjawab daripada Kerajaan. Kita mahu Kerajaan tidak bersikap seperti warden penjara, meletakkan rakyat dalam penjara di rumah mereka, seakan menjatuhkan hukuman sedangkan kes Covid-19 yang meningkat disumbang oleh ketidakcekapan Kerajaan dan SOP yang mengelirukan, bercanggah dan tidak masuk akal. Berapa banyak kampit beras yang dapat kita terus berikan? Berapa banyak lagi bakul makanan untuk diedarkan dan berapa minggu lagi yang mampu kita lakukan? Ketika Ismail Sabri mengumumkan lanjutan total lockdown, rakyat Malaysia amat berharap mereka akan melihat Menteri Kewangan, Tengku Zafrul berdiri di samping beliau bagi mengumumkan bantuan kewangan segera yang boleh membantu rakyat Malaysia. Tetapi, ini tidak berlaku.

Bantu Perniagaan Kekalkan Pekerjaan

Beberapa hari yang lalu saya pergi ke sebuah pusat membeli-belah untuk membeli makanan dan memasuki sebuah kedai buah-buahan untuk membeli buah anggur. Ini adalah kali pertama saya melihat buah-buahan dijual dengan harga yang sangat murah kerana ia tidak lagi segar dan saya satu-satunya pelanggan yang berada di situ. Situasi tersebut sangat menyedihkan. Saya hanya terfikirkan mengenai stok mereka, sewa yang harus dibayar dan gaji pekerja mereka. Hari ini kita tidak lagi bercakap mengenai keuntungan atau pulangan modal. Kini kita hanya bercakap soal kelangsungan hidup. Tumpuan kita sekarang adalah bagaimana untuk mengelak lebih ramai orang hilang pekerjaan dan perniagaan tidak terjejas sehingga terpaksa menutup kedai. Kerajaan banyak memfokuskan kepada golongan B40 sahaja. Hampir tidak ada apa-apa untuk golongan M40 yang berada dalam industri Perusahaan Kecil dan Sederhana (PKS). Dan ketika kumpulan M40 ini kelemasan, golongan T20 juga tidak mampu untuk bernafas. Kerajaan hari ini cuma menjadi penonton, tidak proaktif dan hanya mahu tunggu dan lihat. PKS kini berada di peringkat terakhir mereka untuk meminta pertolongan.

Rakyat Tidak Perlukan Singkatan Nama Untuk Mengaburi Kelemahan

Sejak PKP 1.0 hingga PKP 3.0, Kerajaan Perikatan Nasional (PN) hanya mengumumkan singkatan nama (perkataan atau frasa yang dipendekkan). Mereka mahu ia dilihat menarik tetapi sebenarnya kosong dan tidak mempunyai apa-apa makna di dalamnya. Kerajaan PN hari ini hanya belajar daripada pentadbiran Najib – menambah angka 1 dalam semua programnya. 1Malaysia, Pr1ma, BR1M dan PPA1M. Kerajaan hari ini cuma meniru tabiat yang sama dan melakukannya secara berlebihan. Kita perlu membuat carian di Google setiap kali membaca laporan berita mengenai pengumuman baharu – selain PKP, PKPD, PKPB, PKPP, terdapat juga BPR, PdPR, PICK, PPV, JKJAV, CITF, PIKAS dan SJR (malah ayat sekatan jalan raya juga telah dipendekkan). Kerajaan Perikatan Nasional ini tidak memberikan kita apa-apa selain singkatan nama yang telah dipendekkan untuk menutup kegagalan mereka dan kelemahan koordinasi dalam Kabinet serta antara Kementerian.

Majlis Raja-Raja akan bermesyuarat minggu hadapan. Saya benar-benar berharap agar penderitaan rakyat akan berakhir dengan memendekkan tempoh pentadbiran Kerajaan Perikatan Nasional ini. PN – Be End adalah singkatan nama yang amat kita perlukan sekarang.

Kit Siang: What is the use of the bloated Cabinet meeting? #en

Lim Kit Siang Sedia Pertahankan Gelang Patah - Semasa | mStar
Pic: M.Star

By Lim Kit Siang

What is the use of the bloated Cabinet meeting every Wednesday when it does not have the political will or courage to take critical decisions affecting good governance and upholding the rule of law?

The Transport Minister Wee Ka Siong has said that he will present the report on the collision between two Light Rail Transit (LRT) trains on May 24 at the cabinet meeting today.

Wee said he is satisfied with the report prepared by a nine-member investigation committee, headed by Transport Ministry secretary-general Isham Ishak.

He said: “It was indeed professionally done, comprehensive in its details, and completed within the 14-day period given to them.”

The more important question is whether the report and its recommendations will be made public after the Cabinet meeting.

What is the use of the bloated Cabinet meeting every Wednesday when it does not have the political will or courage to take critical decisions affecting good governance and upholding the rule of law, as in making public the report on the worst collision of two LRT trains on the underground stretch between the KLCC and Kg Baru stations on May 24, 2021, leaving 166 passengers with minor injuries and 47 others needing hospital treatment?

In fact, the Cabinet had never been so irrelevant and inconsequential in the history of Malaysia than in the last five months of the emergency.

If Cabinet still play an important role in Malaysia , it must deal courageously with at least ten important issues:

1. Make public the report on the collision between two LRT trains on May 24, 2021;

2. Explain why Malaysia has become one of the worst performing nations in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic to the extent that the Japanese government had included Malaysia as one of the 10 countries which it wanted the Olympics Games organising committee to consider denying entry for its participants because of a surge in Covid-19 cases.

3. Reiterate topmost priority should be given to the Covid-19 pandemic and the national vaccination rollout to achieve herd immunity against Covid-19 in Malaysia and overrule the Home Minister, Hamzah Zainuddin who wanted to launch raids and arrests of undocumented migrant which will drive them into hiding and refuse to co-operate with the national vaccination rollout.

4. Announce an amnesty for all undocumented migrants to secure their trust and confidence to co-operate with the national vaccination rollout to achieve herd immunity against Covid-19 in Malaysia.

5. End the Covid-19 SOP flip-flops, U-turns, double-standards and frequent Ministerial dogfights whether Ismail-Amin or Hamzah-Khairy which have continued to undermine public trust and confidence in the government handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.

6. Announce the time-line for each state to achieve herd immunity against Covid-19 and to accelerate and complete the national vaccination roll-out by Malaysia Day on September 16, 2021.

7. Instruct the Home Affairs Minister to hold a public inquiry into every custodial death whether in police or prison custody, especially the cases of lorry-driver Umar Faruq Abdullah @ Hermananthan, security guard S. Sivabalan, A. Ganapathy and Surendran Shanker who died after being held at the Simpang Rengam prison.

8. Respond positively to the call by the Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ), Gerakan Media Merdeka (Geramm) and National Union of Journalists (NUJM) alarmed by the frequent use of harassment tactics by the government towards the media.

9. End the emergency declared on January 11, 2021 to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, as the emergency is not the solution to the Covid-19 pandemic but an aggravating factor in worsening the deficit in public trust and confidence in the government handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.

10. Convene Parliament immediately to firstly restore public trust and confidence in the government handling of the war against the Covid-19 pandemic and secondly, to spearhead a national mobilisation of Malaysians through a genuine “whole-of-society” strategy and approach in the war against the Covid-19 pandemic and to accelerate the national vaccination rollout.

How many of these 10 items would the Cabinet dare to commit today?

美盈问凯里:为何疫苗接种数据组无法提取乐龄人士和优先接种群体的名单 #zh

引自 杨美盈

峇吉里国会议员杨美盈于2021年6月8日在柔佛峇吉里发表的文告

疫苗接种特工队 (CITF) 需要加强数据管理能力,以实现“全国冠病免疫计划”第二阶段目标

最近,MySejahtera 增添了几项新功能,其中一个是60岁以上已经注册但还未获得预约的乐龄人士人。这表示,耗资 7000 万令吉的 “全国冠病免疫计划” 数据整合及预约系统甚至不具备基本的数据管理能力。

实际上,从疫苗登记的数据库和疫苗接种进度的追踪系统中,MySejahtera 应该可以从用户在注册疫苗中所填写的年龄和地址,追踪那些60岁以上但仍未接种疫苗的人和他们的地址。这甚至可以用 Microsoft Excel 中简单的过滤、排序和逻辑功能来完成,为什么耗费7000 万令吉的数据系统做不到?

此外,在疫苗注册过程中,人们被要求回答几个问题,包括他们是否是残疾人或有任何合并症(如果是,请勾选哪种合并症)。 这些都是第二阶段“全国冠病免疫计划”的目标人士,他们理应通过数据整合及预约系统的演算获得预约。 为什么没有完成? 相反的,许多优先接种人士需要人手安排疫苗接种。

让我举一个简单的实地例子。我们的办公室得知麻坡县(涵盖3个国会选区— 巴莪、麻坡和峇吉里)的疫苗接种中心在2021年5月30日已经为1957年或更早出生的乐龄人士接种疫苗。于是,我们向麻坡县的居民发出通知,让那些人士向我们办公室登记以便找出落空的老年人,并准备一份备用名单让疫苗接种中心工作人员联系他们。从那时起,我们接到了 500 多个来电。甚至有80多岁患有合并症的老年人没获得疫苗接种预约。 虽然我们可以在地方层面通过替疫苗接种中心提供备用名单来解决这些问题,但这种情况也说明,花费7000万令吉的数据整合及预约系统存在严重缺陷。

据此,我想请全国新冠疫苗接种计划协调部长凯里回答,为何疫苗接种特工队的数据组无法从数据库中提取乐龄人士和优先接种群体的名单,并为他们安排相应的预约?疫苗接种特工队需要加强数据管理能力,以确保“全国冠病免疫计划”第二阶段的目标尽快实现。此外,凯里应该公开耗费7000 万令吉建立这系统的背后团队的资格和能力,因为他们处理数据的能力正受到严重怀疑。

最后,疫苗接种特工队必须评估是否有可能在短时间内提升数据整合及预约系统,否则他们应该开始寻找一个去中心化及更简单的系统,与这个“笨拙”、不那么“智能”的集中式系统并行,以确保数据管理的缺陷不会成为展开疫苗接种工作的障碍。

Zaid: I am still labelled “a DAP puppet” #en

UMNO Klang buat laporan polis terhadap Zaid Ibrahim
Photo: Sairien Nafis, Berita Harian

By Dato’ Mohd Zaid bin Ibrahim

Last week I wrote in my blog; an article addressed to UMNO members that they should not judge Najib Razak too harshly as the legal process is not over yet. I also said I believe his story that Saudi King Abdullah gave him the donation. I also mentioned the possibility that Najib himself is a victim of a political conspiracy.

The article attracted a deluge of criticisms, but I did not expect them to call me names. Some likened me to Raja Petra. I am not averse to criticisms; as I have received my fair share of cruel and unfounded personal attacks in the past. After all, this is not the first time I took a stand on “unpopular” issues of the day. I have never shied away from controversial issues if I believe in them, especially those useful for the public to understand.

I took up the case against the Kelantan “hudud law” because I believe it is against the Federal Constitution. Many Malays called me “apostate” for taking this action and I almost lost the General Election in 2004. When I spoke and wrote extensively in the 1990s about the need to remove “immunity” from the Malay Rulers for personal misconduct, they labelled me a traitor. I suggested MARA took some non-Malays into UITM as that will be good for the Malays, as they will have to be more competitive. What do I get? I was shunned by ITM, my alma mater, to this very day. I defended DAP in front of Malay crowds because I believe the party has some good people who genuinely believe in good governance and worthy of being made partners by Malay political groups to move forward in our nation-building. Till today I have to live with the label “ a DAP puppet.”

I am not proud of being a maverick or an outlier. The only thing I can offer to the public is my views on matters of public interest, given honestly and truthfully. My views may be flawed and my reasoning faulty, but they are never dishonest or contrived. Maybe that’s why many news portals and bloggers are willing to publish my views regularly. I never received any payment from them, nor do I share their political agenda or beliefs. The precious little thing that I have is self-respect. That matters. That’s why In all the years I partook in public life I have never taken money from anyone or position in exchange for support on matters that I do not believe in.

It is hurtful that some people think that I must have been paid for defending “personalities’ like the former PM in the sunset years of my life. Maybe they think that because I am the poorest ex-Minister in the history of the country; I must have succumbed to temptations. Yes, I am not rich, living from hand to mouth because I am not able to practice. I am just too proud to use another person’s name other than my own. But I cannot do that until the court makes its decision. I am jobless, which makes me neither B40 nor M40 to get any support from the government. With Covid 19 getting out of control life is more complicated than during the Japanese occupation.

This piece is written not to appease those who hate me; but to assure my family, friends and readers that I will continue to engage in public discourse with honesty and integrity. I have nothing else to offer the Malaysian public.

Kit Siang: Khairy, get rid of your fixation #en

Lim Kit Siang: PH government to ensure Press freedom | The Edge Markets

By Lim Kit Siang

Call on all Malaysians to unite as one people to be disciplined, to avoid the 3Cs and practise the 3Ws, so that the MCO 3.0 is the last MCO in Malaysia in the war against Covid-19 pandemic and prove that we can learn from the United States and India to become a better performing nation after being a failure in Covid-19 pandemic

I could not believe my eyes when I checked the world-o-meter table for the Covid-19 cases for each country yesterday.

The United States, which was the world’s worst nation in the Covid-19 pandemic for over a year as to have a cumulative total of over 34 million cases and over 600,000 fatalities, was recording a daily increase of over 100,000 new Covid-19 cases for three months and a daily fatality of over 2,000 deaths also for three long months.

It reached its daily peak of new Covid-19 cases on January 8, 2021 when it registered 304,248 cases and its daily peak of fatalities on 12th January 2021 when it registered 4,482 deaths.

Yesterday, the United States registered a daily increase of 7,750 cases — a drop of 97.5% from its peak of 304,248 cases on January 8, and a daily increase of 124 new Covid-19 deaths — a drop of 97.3% from its peak of 4,482 deaths on 12th January 2021!

Even India, which took over United States’ place as the worst performing state in the Covid-19 pandemic in the last two months, is turning the corner as far as daily increase of new Covid-19 cases is concerned, although it daily Covid-19 fatalities are still high exceeding 3,000 deaths since April 27.

Yesterday, India reported a daily increase of 153,485 cases — a 63% drop from its peak of 414,433 new daily cases 24 days ago on May 6. India registered 3,129 Covid-19 deaths yesterday.

The United States is now the eighth country with the highest daily increase of new Covid-19 cases, while Malaysia is ranked No. 11.

Tomorrow, the full-lockdown of MCO 3.0 goes into force, and there is gloom and doom in Malaysia;

I call on all Malaysians to unite as one people to be disciplined, to avoid the 3Cs and practise the 3Ws — avoid Crowded places, Close-contact settings and Confined and enclosed spaces; while Wear a mask, Wash hands and heed the Warning to avoid close contact, practise proper cough etiquette, frequent disinfection and seek medical help if symptomatic — so that the MCO 3.0 is the last MCO in Malaysia in the war against Covid-19 pandemic and prove that we can learn from the United States and India to become a better performing nation after being a failure in Covid-19 pandemic.

However, I agree with former Cabinet Minister Rafidah Aziz and the president of the Federation of Private Medical Practitioners’ Associations (FPMPAM), Dr. Steven Chow that the acceleration of the ramping-up of the national vaccination rollout must be one the priorities, and the Minister co-ordinating vaccines, Khairy Jamaluddin, must get rid of his fixation with “mega” Covid-19 vaccination centres as the challenge is to get the vaccine to people especially in remote areas and not to get the people to the vaccine!

Anwar: Kita tidak setuju dengan pengunaan Akta Hasutan #ms

Get Well Soon, Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim | Din Merican: the Malaysian DJ  Blogger

Oleh Dato’ Seri Anwar bin Ibrahim

PKR tidak pernah berganjak daripada pendirian menolak Akta Hasutan 1948, kata presidennya Anwar Ibrahim, selepas dilihat menjarakkan diri daripada seorang ahli parti yang disiasat oleh polis minggu ini atas dakwaan menghina dan mempersenda Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

PKR sejak semalam dikritik hebat oleh sesetengah pihak selepas menjelaskan kenyataan Iswardy Morni yang didakwa menghina dan mempersenda Yang di-Pertuan Agong bukan mewakili pendirian parti.

Menurut Anwar, PKR sudah menasihati Iswardy pada April untuk menjaga tatasusila dan adab semasa membuat teguran kepada pemerintah.

“Kita tegur tetapi beliau teruskan, maka kita terpaksa beri amaran secara terbuka,” katanya di Port Dickson.

Tegas Anwar, sikap PKR itu tidak menghakis pendirian parti mengenai Akta Hasutan dan prinsip keadilan.

“Apakah saya setuju dengan tindakan Akta Hasutan? Saya tidak setuju. Secara prinsip kita tidak setuju (pihak berkuasa) guna Akta Hasutan.

“Apakah saya setuju beliau diberikan bantuan guaman? Saya setuju. Ini hak setiap rakyat dapat perlindungan guaman.

“Apakah tidak wajar beliau menegur? Itu hak setiap rakyat menegur terutama dalam keadaan sekarang, cuma ada kaedah dan ada kebijaksanaannya,” tambahnya.

Pengarah komunikasi PKR Fahmi Fadzil semalam berkata perbuatan Iswardy tidak mewakili parti, malah biro politik parti sudah sejak April memberi amaran keras termasuk tindakan pecat kepadanya.

Menurut Fahmi, PKR menunggu siasatan polis sebelum mengambil tindakan lanjut terhadap Iswardy.

Ketua Penerangan Bersatu Wan Saiful Wan Jan mencabar PKR mengambil tindakan tegas dan memecat Iswardy.

Iswardy adalah anggota biasa PKR cabang Petra Jaya, Sarawak dan tidak memegang apa-apa jawatan dalam pimpinan negeri mahupun pusat.

Iswardy pada Jumaat membuat siaran langsung di laman YouTube miliknya mengupas keputusan Putrajaya mengenakan sekatan pergerakan penuh atau lockdown bagi mengekang penularan Covid-19.

Beliau mempertahan kenyataannya dan menegaskan ia bukan menghina Yang di-Pertuan Agong sebaliknya rayuan untuk baginda campur tangan setelah Perdana Menteri Muhyiddin Yassin dan kerajaan didakwanya gagal mengurus keadaan.

Semalam, Menteri Dalam Negeri Hamzah Zainuddin berkata perbuatan menghina atau mempersendakan Yang di-Pertuan Agong dan institusi diraja tidak patriotik dan tidak bertanggungjawab, dan boleh mengganggu ketenteraman awam. – 31 Mei, 2021.
