I doing my rounds around the blogersphere and saw this write up about the fall of Anwar. Was it a conspiracy?
Have a read at The Might of The Pen from SjsandTeam
Remember Saiful? The swearing boy who toke the back door to fame?? Well…apparently he has not been called to the courts to be questioned and he must be getting eager to take his stardom to a new level. The letter was posted on Saiful’s blog which apparently was sent to DSAI on the 27/06/08.
He ask you to read and decide the content?! (He wants you to read between the lines) Sounds pretty convinient to accuse someone of something which are in the courts and release such emails to get more support your way ha! Well done…More documents to show Saiful?
Ever wondered how a prime minister is decided? With Najib,Badawi,Anwar and now even Ku Li after the hot seat, the below article gives you a idea of the posibilities of how a prime minister can be elected based on circumtances.
EVEN as opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim stumbled in his quest to unseat the government by 16 Sept 2008, the likelihood of a change in government lingers palpably. Questions now abound about how exactly Anwar can achieve forming the next government.
Some legal experts have said a vote of no-confidence in Parliament against the sitting prime minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, is the Pakatan Rakyat leader’s only recourse.
Lawyer Tommy Thomas tells The Nut Graph what methods are constitutionally available for a change of premier. The constitutional lawyer explains the legal principles involved, stressing that blocking a vote of no-confidence in Parliament against the prime minister — which has happened twice already — is unconstitutional, as are attempts to detain Anwar or any other member of parliament (MP) at this juncture.
TNG: What are the legal principles established by the three cases: Stephen Kalong Ningkan (1966); the Privy Council case (Nigerian case: Adegbenro vs Akintola in 1963); and 1994′s Datuk Amir Kahar Mustapha vs Tun Mohd Said Keruak, which involved former chief minister of Sabah Datuk Joseph Pairin Kitingan resigning from his post?
Tommy Thomas: The legal principles established by the cases are this: In the Stephen Kalong Ningkang case, the court said, the only way to test confidence is by a lower house vote. That is the legal principle. So it is confined to one method only. In the Privy Council case from Nigeria and the Pairin Kitingan case, there was no lower house vote. Yet the courts said in both cases, the governor acted correctly. That’s the principle to be drawn.
So the three reported cases we know of [involved] governors (the Sabah and Sarawak Yang diPertua’s powers are similar to a governor’s). Yet none of them is the decision of the head of state or a constitutional monarch. I personally know of no [such] cases.
So, in the Malaysian context now, there are no precedents to guide us? Continue reading »
Sept 16 was a date that most Malaysians were waiting eagerly for. Then there was the Sept 23rd which was the date that was set by Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim for the PM to call for the emergency parliamentary hearing. That didn’t happen. So what next?
I tell you what happen since then.. Malaysians have become impatient and started suspecting if the Pakatan politicians have the numbers to start with? Sceptics came out their guns blazing and from the BN leaders,supporters,to even some Pakatan supporters.
Fair enough..patients is not exactly a virtue many people have and you cant blame them considering the current political climate and economically situation of the nation.
Below are a series of questions that you need to answer very honestly and this should help put things in perspective in my view. Continue reading »
The Pakatan rakyat leadership has sent a letter to the Pak Lah requesting for a meeting and he rejected that. Then the Pakatan leadership called for a emergency parliamentary hearing..that too was rejected and BN and UMNO think that DSAI and the Pakatan leadership have nothing and are just buying time.
WOULDN’T IT BE EASIER TO MEET ANWAR AND THE PAKATAN LEADERSHIP AND CLARIFY THIS ISSUE??? Continue reading »
