Muhyiddin Yassin announced his cabinet back on 9th March 2020 – it is an oversized cabinet with many familiar faces from 55 under Pakatan to 70 under the new coalition. The question of whether it is a better line-up than the one under Pakatan. Image source: Malay Mail
Well, it is kind of a closure for Malaysia that the King had decided that Bersatu’s Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has the highest support and thus will be the next Prime Minister. The last minute show of support for Dr Mahathir for PM from the MPs including rebels like Baru Bian may just be too late. Image source: Al Jazeera
As far as I am concerned, the dust yet to settle on the recent Malaysian political drama – nothing have settled yet. On paper, no one has a clear majority to take up the lead and be the next Prime Minister. Image source: Bloomberg / Yahoo Finance
It may come down to the end, to the last minute and after plenty of frog jumping, inducements and promises made before the nation decides that we have no choice but to call for elections.
Just after winning the last election, Malaysia saw a change in the political landscape. So with Bersatu’s latest move, will this be the end of Pakatan Harapan & New Malaysia? Image source: TheStar
It does like that this is the case after news were out that Dr M’s party will create new political coalition which includes UMNO, MCA, MIC and PAS. This will basically kicks out DAP, Amanah and PKR (those aligned to Anwar Ibrahim). In other words, it is a betrayal of the people’s mandate back in 2018 where they voted out Barisan Nasional which comprised by the same political parties that Dr M now wants to join.
Seriously do we really need Harmony and Reconciliation Commission? Do we have a very serious race & religion conflicts in this country? Where this conflict is coming from? Is the notion of race misunderstood in this country? Infographic source: https://pediaa.com
One of biggest failures that Malaysia has since we got our independence from the British is on the issue of race and religion. It had already remained a very sensitive issue ever since and there is no single passes by without one hearing some incidents related to race or religion.
(Water disruptions and people queuing up to get water from public tanks – do we need this at this age where we have enough rain & raw water to be channelled to water treatment plant? Image source; NST)
You know how pissed off I was last Tuesday?
I was driving back from work – it was raining rather very heavily and some parts of the road were even flooded. I reached home and the rain have not stopped and found that the tap was still dry. It has been 4 days since the water supply was disrupted. Something does not add up, doesn’t it?
The PH Government have just announced the budget for next year – budget 2020 is a smaller budget compared to last year and seems to be in a better managed compared to a rushed one last year (when the PH Ministers were still struggling with their portfolios). Infographic source: The Star
New regulations and identifying area of improvement between e hailing and taxi companies in this country are part and parcel of the Government policies to provide a fair grounds for both segment to strive and to ensure service to the general public is not compromised. Image source: Malaysiakini
In 1981, the Malaysia Incorporated Policy was introduced to encourage the close cooperation between the public and private sectors whereby both sectors act and operate within a “Malaysian Company”.
Water pollution & water disruption to consumers is not new – the above was back in October 2016 when it was discovered that a toxic solvent had been dumped into a tributary of a river that flows into the Sungai Semenyih water treatment plant. Earlier this month, the plant was shut down due to “odor pollution”.
On Sept 23, it was closed due to contamination from Sungai Lalang near the Semenyih Hitech area, and a day earlier, it was shut down due to contamination believed to be from an illegal factory along Jalan Sungai Lalang. Image source: The Star
Considering how water pollution is causing hardship to the consumers in this country and the level of punishment is not enough to stop pollution from recurring (and causing water supply disruptions), we need to treat all these polluters as terrorists and water pollution in particular as a determined terrorist attack.
