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.
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
(Exercising my rights in this GE14. The queue to each voting stations – this particular queue where I was standing started from the staircase, all the way to the end, turns right forming another line, makes a U-Turn at the end and heads back to the left. At the end of this left is the classroom where the voting station is located. Look at the queues at the each of the floor – the line was long and it moved so slow)
Weeks before the actual GE14 elections day came (the time Najib was still undecided on when to call for the General Elections), I was worried – will we see another 5 years of nonsense and things to be continued to be swept under the carpet?
(Bullshit!!!! The Old Man’s reaction when he heard that some mysterious donors from the Middle East had donated some USD700 million (RM2.6 billion ringgit) into Najib’s personal account and the reason for the donation had been spiraling down into realms of stupidity and absurd.

One way or another, I was expecting someone to pull in the Jews into the picture. Doesn’t it been the case whenever things gets screwed big time. I was right and this time they included DAP for the ride as well.
The case of a missing plane is no laughing matter but then again, seeing this image on Facebook reminds me of the need for Malaysian politicians who intending to be Ministers and Deputy Ministers to have the right qualifications, knowledge and attitude when the shit does hit the fan.

2010 was unfortunately “their” year but they deserved it – they played their cards rights
One of the few best things that BN under Najib did in 2010 (although it was long, long overdue) was getting a new President for MIC but then again, MIC is old news and the old President did not go away with empty hands.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Abd Aziz, in his reply, said the reason to pass the bill was to comply with the requirements set by the International Coordinating Committee of National Institutions for the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights (ICC) so that Suhakam (the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia) would retain its Grade A category.

(BN in distress, Anwar is back! Image source: The People’s Parliament)
What a win!
The final official majority is 15,671 votes. Anwar secured 31,195 votes; Ariff 15,524 votes and Akim’s Hanafi Mamat 92 votes (deposit lost).
And interestingly this is despite:-
BN pushing its whole election machinery to fight against one man (the TV, the newsprint, the money, the swearing, prominent spokesmen including top government officials – in the case of swearing);
Khairy making the arrogant remarks that they will bury Anwar’s political ambitions in this by election;
The sodomy accusations against Anwar;
The swearing on the Quran against Anwar;
There is a discrepancy between the Election Commission’s figure for the voter turnout of 65 per cent turnout and the actual turnout, which was 80 per cent;
Anwar still made with a bigger majority than his wife did in the last general election.… [Click to read the rest] “Anwar: I am Back!”No tags for this post.
