Anwar cannot influence snap Sabah polls by ‘overthrowing’ Muhyiddin gov’t

Anwar Ibrahim is noted for wresting defeat from the jaws of victory.

Agong will wait for backdoor PM Muhyiddin Yassin to see him before he sees, if at all, Anwar Ibrahim.

Agong will not call for the PM to see him.

The Agong will remain above the fray. Once bitten, twice shy. He will not repeat the Royal Coup of 1 Mar 2020.

Anwar and frogs can present their case in Parliament after gov’t business is concluded. Generally, Parliament will be adjourned after gov’t business is concluded.

Any Motion by the frogs while specific, and a matter of public concern and interest, is NOT URGENT.

So, in fact, the Motion can be rejected by the Speaker instead of accepting it and tucking it under the bottom, i.e. after gov’t business.

The Agong can only consent to the dissolution of Parliament IF advised by the Prime Minister.

Muhyiddin is unlikely to advise the Agong to consent to the dissolution of Parliament.

Muhyiddin will not resign just because Anwar claims to have some frogs with him.

The issue is not whether Anwar Ibrahim has the numbers in Parliament, he probably has them this time.

The issue is that Anwar has never once followed the Constitution on the appointment of the Prime Minister.

That’s because he belabours in the delusion that the PM’s post is his Tamil Hindu paternal grandfather’s property.

On 16 Sept 2008, he claimed that he had the numbers to take over as Prime Minister. He ended up in jail for Sodomy II.

During Mahathir’s 2nd stint as Prime Minister, Anwar harped every day in the media in various ways about being the PM-in-Waiting.

At the same time, he said he was in no hurry and asked for Mahathir to be given space and time.

The rest is history.

Mahathir could have handed the PM’s post to Anwar by way of the PH Chairman’s post. Mahathir cannot claim that Anwar did not have the numbers when the latter’s claim is based on what he himself had in Parliament.

Never once did Anwar make a bid for the PH Chairman’s post. He only became PH Chairman after Mahathir left, having eaten to his satisfaction, burped, vomitted, shat, and farted like thunder.

Now, Anwar claims that he spoke to the Agong by phone.

He also told the media that he was planning to go to IJN to see the Agong bla bla bla.

All this is a breach of protocol by the so-called parliamentary Opposition leader. Indians would say that Anwar was showing his Tamil puthi, a derogatory term indicating a lack of intelligence.

The Agong, according to one report, quickly discharged himself to “recover” in the Istana.

GPS will quit Muhyiddin gov’t if PAS and Bersatu insist on contesting in Sarawak.

PBB is Umno in Sarawak.

Anwar’s numbers include the hairs on his YouKnowWhat.

Anwar says he has numbers to form govt and King to grant him an audience

https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2020/09/23/muhyiddin-mocks-anwar-over-empty-claim/

Zahid and Mat Hassan not speaking the same language.

Mat Hasan kata Umno masih bersama PN

Zahid, facing numerous cases in court, seems to be fishing in troubled waters by saying that Umno MPs in their individual capacities may be supporting Anwar Ibrahim.

He said it’s the Umno MPs who are in the Muhyiddin gov’t, not Umno and BN which are not components of PN.

Zahid will not be able to put pressure on Muhyiddin by making such a statement.

His cases will go ahead.

Both PAS and GPS have denied supporting Anwar. According to one report, GPS will support Anwar if DAP is kept out. That’s racist!

Racists like PAS and GPS will stick with Umno. PBB is Umno in Sarawak.

Anwar cannot influence the snap Sabah election by claiming to have overthrown the Muhyiddin gov’t.

The people still remember the insulting statement made by a lawmaker on the armed forces.

If Anwar Ibrahim becomes PM before GE15, or after GE15, I will buy Selva two oxtail asam pedas.

I won’t eat. I will watch him eat.

He can pack one home.

Agong will not entertain Anwar & Frogs.

He will not allow him to enter the Istana.

He may or may not point in the direction of Parliament. He can just keep quiet and “buat tak tahu”.

The scene will shift to Parliament, the Proper Forum.

Almost no one is addressing the elephant in the room: the PTI, especially those in the electoral rolls.

Hamzah, the Home Minister, has said that he will station NRD officers at polling stations to vet ICs to weed out dubious documents held by the PTI.

He has closed the borders to prevent foreigners coming in to “create trouble”. “Create trouble” is euphemism for voting with dubious ICs.

His statement in Kiulu has been interpreted in two ways: if PBS loses there, he sees no reason to deport the PTI; or if PBS loses, he will deport the PTI.

The Kimanis parliamentary by-election showed that the Orang Asal, and many other Sabahans, will not vote for any parti considered mesra PTI.

Who pushed the PSS and who went along with it?

Will PSS be revived, perhaps in a different form?

Ironically, it was Hamzah who said that IMM13 will be extended to all PTI.

IMM13, under the law, is a document for refugees who entered only in the 70s from the southern Philippines.

Many of the original holders are probably dead by now or returned home.

The IMM13 has to be renewed yearly. Many holders, according to the gov’t, did not do so.

The children of the IMM13 were alternately given the document or denied the facility.

Again, according to the gov’t, there are many forged IMM13 floating around.

PSS was supposed to overcome the forged IMM13 and also extend it to those who hold the surat burung burung and sijil banci, the latter two issued by the CM’s Dept.

The issue in law is having an identity.

Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar announced in KK many years ago that everyone in Malaysia would have an identity but not necessarily a Malaysian identity.

He was in KK to hand a blue IC to a senior Sino lady who had lost her IC.

The JPN gave her a red IC as her father was from China. She refused to take it. The news was in the DE and many papers and reached Putrajaya. I covered the story for malaysiakini. The story became controversial.

The system exists. The PTI cannot avoid the system forever. My blog piece on IMM13 and related issues addresses the problem. I cited the Federal court.

I handled one case where a waitress, illiterate, was detained at Rumah Merah.

Taking my cue from Syed Hamid, I helped prepare her appeal pro bono to various authorities to be given an identity. She had a local birth cert. Both her parents, in a kampung somewhere, were PTI who came some 30 years ago. They had dubious ICs which were confiscated.

Notwithstanding her appeals, she was deported to the Philippines. There, she was detained, and deported back. Rumah Merah released her.

She came back to work at the same restaurant. Apparently, she was sorting out some sort of paperwork at JPN. I was not allowed to get involved.

Then, CV-19 came and the restaurant closed.

The PTI are very suspicious. They don’t trust anyone except their people.

In Australia, for example, the PTI will always approach human rights NGOs and seek legal help as well.

In Malaysia, it’s a humanitarian tragedy. The PTI children are not in school. Many become street kids. I see them sniffing glue.

The PTI issue can only be resolved if it’s not politicised. We have to look at the law in addressing the issue.

It’s easy to say that the PTI should be deported. It can only happen in the case of people who have been in the country less than ten years.

No details on autonomy in a Jeffrey Kitingan video that’s making the rounds.

When was the video made?

What steps can be taken?

Najib, before GE14, offered to delegate greater administrative powers to Sabah and Sarawak by way of devolution.

PH set up a special committee on MA63.

It has now been placed under the OSA by PN.

After criticisms, PN has set up a Council on MA63 because of the snap Sabah election.

We won’t hear of the Council after the Sabah polls. Then, it will be dredged up when GE15 comes.

  1. The Edge Article is riddled with errors.

    The Agong has no power to dissolve Parliament.

    He can only consent to the dissolution of Parliament IF advised accordingly by the PM.

    He can withhold consent.

    He can’t advise the PM to resign.

    He can’t sack the PM.

    He can’t instruct the Speaker to convene Parliament earlier than scheduled.

    The Agong doesn’t have to do anything re Anwar Ibrahim’s claims.

    He will not call for the PM.

    He will wait for the PM to see him.

    When Muhyiddin sees the Agong, as he must from time to time, the latter will not ask the PM re Anwar’s claims.

    Anwar cannot just march up to the Istana to see the Agong. That would be a breach of protocol.

    Anwar has to wait until the Agong summons him.

    The Agong won’t summon Anwar until the PM sees him and concedes that he has lost the confidence of the majority in the Dewan Rakyat.

    Muhyiddin is unlikely to do that.

    Then, the scene will shift to Parliament.

    As evident from Mahathir’s efforts on a no confidence motion, Anwar’s bid will fizzle out.

  2. *Sokongan 15 MP Umno dan kenyataan Zahid penjelasan terbaik kenapa Anwar berkata, majoriti MP yang menyokong beliau adalah berbangsa Melayu dan beragama Islam.*
    _https://bit.ly/3cnOsS4_

    Kesian betul Umno. Frogging here and there. How the mighty have fallen!

    My prediction is that Umno will never get back the PM’s post.

  4. Istana Negara mengesahkan bahawa Presiden PKR Anwar Ibrahim dan isterinya, Wan Azizah Ismail telah diterima untuk menghadap Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah pada hari Selasa lalu.

    Dalam satu kenyataan, Datuk Pengelola Bijaya Diraja, Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin berkata, bahawa majlis itu bagaimanapun ditangguhkan susulan kegeringan Seri Paduka dan terpaksa dirawat di Institut Jantung Negara.

    https://www.malaysiakini.com/news/543772

    Istana Negara has confirmed that PKR president Anwar Ibrahim and his wife had been granted to an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah yesterday.

    In a statement, Comptroller of the Royal Household Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin (above, centre) said the event, however, had to be postponed as the king was unwell and had to be treated at the National Heart Institute.

  5. I advised Agong to remain above the fray. That’s why he’s in IJN.

    Agong will point in the direction of Parliament. Once bitten, twice shy. No more “Royal Coup”.

    Minority gov’t is lawful.

    Read my blog piece, “If I was Agong . . .”

    It’s kurang ajar to go to the IJN to see the Agong.

    https://www.malaysiakini.com/news/543663

    Why blame the frogs? Go to the root of the problem.

    Read my blog piece, “If I was Agong . . .” a response to the Istana statement to the “Royal Coup” op-ed in The Guardian.

    The Istana, in contradicting itself, agreed with the op-ed. I pointed that out.

    Frogs would be irrelevant if heads of state — sultan, Agong, Governor — remain above the fray.

    Having said that, no court would go against a head of state who doesn’t remain above the fray. Our courts are not noted for accepting novel developments in law to declare law.

    Some things are beyond, the Constitution, law and the court.

    The Proper Forum is the legislature, not the Istana.

    If the court enters the picture, justice delayed is justice denied. Take MA’s case for example. It should have been resolved in two weeks.

    Now, it has been two years, and we still don’t see light at the end of the tunnel.

    At least, the Federal court said the Perak case law is not applicable.

    The 7/11 ruling, which upheld the Perak case law, took six months. After that the amoi judge was promoted to the court of appeal.

    No prizes for guessing who was behind it.
