The loss of Perak in the 12th General Election (GE12) was most surprising and the Pakatan Rakyat government was not expected to last very long. On Jan 26, 2009, the then-Bota assemblyman Datuk Nasaruddin Hashim left Umno and announced his intention to join PKR. This led to a series of events that have gone down in the annals of Malaysian constitutional history and set certain legal principles that altered the…

刘华才促请教育部停止将华语及淡米尔语列为外语。-Choo Choy May摄-(吉隆坡22日讯)民政党全国副主席拿督刘华才指出,教育部长马智礼在昨日宣布的五大教改措施中,竟将华语及淡语列为外语,显示希盟政府不重视华人与印度人的母语,令人感到失望。他发表文告说,马来西亚是由三大民族,即巫裔、华裔与印裔,及其他少数民族组成的国家,如今教育部长却将华语及淡米尔语,例为与日语、阿拉伯语同等地位的外语,这是非常不尊重的华裔与印…
(吉隆坡20日讯)民政党副主席拿督刘华才劝请教育部长马智礼应该专注于重要的教育课 题,例如承认统考及进行教育改革,而不是将全国学生的校鞋从白变黑。   他发文告说,与将白色校鞋改为黑色相比,承认 统考及进行教育改革更为迫切,因此,他对马智 礼宣布明年起将校鞋从白色变为黑色之举感到啼 笑皆非。    “校鞋的颜色有那么重要吗?过去60年来我们的 学生都穿白色校鞋,到底这有什么问题…
自希盟新政府上任后,华社最期盼的就是可以看到独中统考文凭获得承认的一天,正因为希望联盟在509全国大选的竞选宣言中许下了承认统考的承诺,华社更是乐见其成,充满期待。然而,教育部长马智礼日前却发表声明重申承认独中统考课题仍必须全面研究,以確保国语地位不受影响的言论。 我认为,他旨在拖延承认统考文凭,以便人民可以渐渐淡忘这项希望联盟在竞选宣言中许下的承诺。 希盟在他们的竞选宣言中清楚说明,就如副教育部长张念群所说的「白纸…
首相马哈迪最近宣布所有国会议员,包括反对党,连同部长、副部长、首相和副首相,都要呈报财产。21岁以下的子女和直属家人也不例外。乍听之下,感觉到政府打贪的决心。可是想想,好像也没什么,只不过之前是向首相呈报,现在改向反贪会呈报。之前没有包括国会议员,现在把范围扩大了。但,值得称赞的,是所有呈报都在网上公布,一切透明,公众可以点评。 我赞成把范围扩大到国会议员。但政府可以倣傚很多国家,即约束国会议员做议员以外的工作,让国…

Gerakan deputy youth chief Andy Yong has mooted the establishment of a parliamentary 'scrutiny committee' to advise MPs on legislative and fiscal matters tabled in the Dewan Rakyat.In a statement today, Yong said such a committee is necessary because some elected representatives lack the requisite "intellectual capability" to understand the bills put before them, and are more concerned with politicising issues."There is today an extremely worrying trend in the august…
Departing from his normal diplomatic rebukes, Gerakan Youth deputy chief Andy Yong fired a vitriolic salvo at Pakatan Harapan politicians this afternoon.He was responding to the criticism surrounding the opposition staging a walkout from Dewan Rakyat yesterday and Johor DAP chairperson Liew Chin Tong's appointment as deputy defence minister today.“When they (Harapan) always did a walkout (from Dewan Rakyat), they considered it as their democratic right.“Now, when they make a…
A Gerakan leader has called for all race- and religion-based political parties to be banned in Malaysia.Baljit Singh, the party’s national legal and human rights bureau chief, believes that it is high time to consider the move, as Malaysia has already been independent for six decades."I am making the call for all quarters, including the Pakatan Harapan government, to think about it rationally, without fear or favour, to consider banning…
