300 Ketua Cawangan UMNO, 17 Bahagian leaders Quit in Sempoerna.

Image result for UMNO Semporna kecoh

This is from The Star here :


Shafie's deputy, other leaders in Semporna quit Umno
 
Sulabayan assemblyman Jaujan Sambakong resigned from Umno 

citing suspension of Semporna division chief Shafie Apdal as unfair.

“I have quit party,” Jaujan told The Star Online.

also quit Semporna chairman Eranza Saribu, 17 division and 300 branch leaders.
 
unhappy with “unfair” suspension of Shafie, who is Semporna MP.

Shafie played pivotal role in Umno’s entry into Sabah and helped its establishment.

He is loyal party member and worked to protect party. to suspend him unfair,’’ Jaujan

My comments :  So what if Shafie worked hard for the party? So what if Shafie helped UMNO enter Sabah (oops)?  What you did for the party is not relevant.

What is relevant is "Do you support crooks and thieves?"

If you cannot support crooks and thieves, then all your previous contributions to the party become useless. It is not relevant.

The important thing is can you help a hippo carry bagfuls of dirty underwear onto  a getaway plane? If you can, you are in. If you cannot, you are out.  It is as simple as that. 

Well I hope that the resignation of Husni Hanadzlah, this resignation of 300 Branch Chiefs in Sempoerna, the resignation of 17 division level leaders and the resignation of the assemblyman will trigger an exodus from UMNO.

Semua ahli UMNO yang masih belum berhenti atau menarik diri dari jawatan dan keahlian perlu fikir rapi keadaan paling genting sekarang yang menimpa seluruh negara kita dan semua kaum dan lapisan masyarakat kita. Hanya ahli UMNO yang boleh menyelamatkan keadaan sekarang.

Tindakan tegas dan berani 300 Ketua Cawangan Sempoerna, 17 pemimpin Bahagian dan ADUN Sulabayan patut dicontohi.  Darah pejuang pelaut Bajau dan Suluk. 

Jika ahli UMNO masih hendak tunggu lagi orang lain pula yang akan datang menyelamatkan keadaan.    UMNO akan lenyap. Ahli UMNO akan muflis.  

Akta tanpa perkenan AGUNG








Jadi akta tanpa perkenan Agong


SUATU  Rang Undang-undang (RUU) telah pun diluluskan oleh Dewan Rakyat dan Dewan Negara sebelum ini yang dikenali sebagai RUU Majlis Keselamatan Negara (MKN).
Mengikut proses biasa, suatu RUU selepas diluluskan oleh Parlimen akan dikemukakan kepada Yang di-Pertuan Agong untuk diperkenankan. Ini menurut Perkara 66 Perlembagaan Persekutuan.
RUU tersebut harus mendapat perkenan Yang di-Pertuan Agong dalam masa 30 hari dari tarikh ia dikemukakan.
Tetapi, RUU MKN ini adalah luar biasa kerana ia menjadi akta walaupun tanpa perkenan Yang di-Pertuan Agong. Ini tidak pernah berlaku sebelum ini.
Menurut Perkara 66(4A) Perlembagaan Persekutuan, jika sesuatu RUU tidak diperkenankan oleh YDPA dalam masa 30 hari dari tarikh RUU tersebut dikemukakan, maka RUU seolah-olah diperkenankan oleh YDPA dan menjadi akta, secara ‘automatik’.
Ini boleh ditafsirkan bahawa YDPA tidak bersetuju dengan Akta MKN ini. Malahan, Majlis Raja-Raja sebelum ini menyatakan bahawa beberapa peruntukan dalam RUU tersebut harus diperhalusi.
Selepas Majlis Raja-Raja membuat pengumuman sedemikian, Peguam Negara sendiri menyatakan bahawa beberapa peruntukan RUU MKN ini akan dikaji semula. Namun, seperti yang disahkan oleh peguam negara sendiri melalui laporan media, tidak ada pindaan yang dibuat kepada RUU MKN yang menjadi akta ini.
Kita tidak tahu apakah sebab YDPA dan Majlis Raja-Raja berbuat sedemikian. Tetapi apa yang kita tahu, banyak pihak telah mengkritik undang-undang ini.
Akta ini secara natijahnya memberikan kuasa-kuasa darurat kepada pihak Kerajaan Malaysia tanpa memerlukan Yang di-Pertuan Agong membuat suatu pengisytiharan darurat.
Menurut Perlembagaan Persekutuan, Yang di-Pertuan Agong mempunyai kuasa untuk mengisytiharkan darurat sekiranya berpuas hati bahawa suatu darurat besar sedang berlaku yang menyebabkan keselamatan, atau kehidupan ekonomi, atau ketenteraman awam di dalam Persekutuan atau mana-mana bahagiannya terancam.
Akta MKN ini adalah suatu pengambilan kuasa yang dikhaskan kepada Yang di-Pertuan Agong dan diberikan kepada MKN, yang dipengerusikan oleh perdana menteri.
Siapakah ahli-ahli Majlis Keselamatan Negara? Selain daripada perdana menteri, ia terdiri daripada timbalan perdana menteri, menteri pertahanan, menteri dalam negeri, menteri komunikasi dan multimedia, ketua setiausaha negara, panglima angkatan tentera dan ketua polis negara.
Akta MKN memberi kuasa kepada perdana menteri untuk mengisytiharkan suatu ‘kawasan keselamatan’ sekiranya dinasihati oleh MKN bahawa mana-mana kawasan di Malaysia ‘diganggu atau diancam dengan serius oleh mana-mana orang, perkara, atau benda yang menyebabkan atau berkemungkinan untuk menyebabkan bahaya yang serius kepada wilayah, ekonomi, infrastruktur utama negara atau apa-apa kepentingan Malaysia yang lain dan menghendaki tindak balas serta-merta’.
Pengisytiharan kawasan keselamatan ini berkuat kuasa untuk tempoh enam bulan dan boleh diperbaharui untuk enam bulan lagi dan pembaharuan ini boleh dibuat tanpa had.
MKN mempunyai kuasa untuk membuat perintah eksekutif untuk mengatur kedudukan pasukan keselamatan (seperti polis dan tentera) di dalam kawasan tersebut. Seorang pengarah operasi yang dilantik oleh MKN dan bertanggungjawab hanya kepada MKN akan dilantik dan beliau mempunyai kuasa yang luas dan tidak terhad seperti kuasa menahan masuk orang, memerintahkan perintah berkurung dan mengawal pergerakan orang atau kenderaan.
Di samping itu, di dalam suatu kawasan keselamatan, pihak berkuasa juga punya kuasa untuk menangkap tanpa waran, memeriksa dan menyita tanpa waran, menggeledah premis untuk benda berbahaya dan mengambil milikan sementara tanah, bangunan dan harta mudah alih.
Jelas bahawa kerajaan mempunyai kuasa-kuasa yang luas dan yang akan menjejaskan kebebasan asasi individu-individu di dalam kawasan tersebut.
Persoalannya, adakah kerajaan begitu terdesak untuk mendapat kuasa di bawah akta ini sehingga membelakangi kekhuatiran pelbagai pihak mengenai kuasa yang diperuntukkan?

Zaid asks Husni to join Save Malaysia movement

Former second finance minister Husni Hanadzlah has been invited to join Dr Mahathir Mohamad's Save Malaysia movement by the former prime minister’s stalwart, Zaid Ibrahim.
"Husni is a good man and good people can't stay in the cesspool for long.
"I urge Husni to come join Save Malaysia Movement. He knows enough to want to do something for the country," Zaid tweeted today.
Husni has resigned from the cabinet and it was later revealed yesterday that he has given up all his positions in Umno and BN, including as Umno treasurer.
Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, who announced Husni's intention to retire as second finance minister, said this was due to personal reasons.
Speculation is rife that the Tambun MP's exit from Putrajaya was actually due to the 1MDB scandal.
Zaid, a former minister in the Prime Minister’s Deparment in charge of law, believes Husni now understands the difficulties he had faced back in 2008, when Zaid quit the government.
"When I resigned, Husni said I should have patience and work from within. Now he probably understand things better."

Zaid resigned from then prime minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's cabinet in September 2008, in protest against use of arbitrary detention under the Internal Security Act.
The Save Malaysia movement, spearheaded by Mahathir, aims to topple Najib and implement institutional reforms.
Najib has consistently denied any wrong doing in the 1MDB scandal, while attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali has cleared Najib of criminal misconduct in cases linked to the state investment firm. - Mkini

Anwar wins bid to strike out 'sodomy convictions' in Utusan's defence

The High Court in Kuala Lumpur has allowed Anwar Ibrahim's application to strike out certain paragraphs in Utusan Malaysia's defence in a defamation suit brought by the PKR de facto leader.
The expunged paragraphs were about Anwar's conviction on corruption charges by the High Court in Kuala Lumpur in 1999 and the Sodomy II conviction by the Federal Court in 2015 , which Utusan cited to justify its report against the former opposition leader.
Justice John Louis O'Hara made the decision based on the argument that criminal case convictions should not be raised in a civil proceeding.
"Evidence of previous convictions should be inadmissible (in this defamation trial); it is necessary to strike out (these paragraphs)," said O'Hara.
The judge has cited the case of Anwar versus and former PKR man S Nallakaruppan, where the Court of Appeal had ruled that previous conviction should not be considered as a factor.
Utusan was ordered to pay RM2,500 in costs.
On Jan 7, Anwar sought to strike out three paragraphs of Utusan’s defence that cited Anwar's convictions.
Anwar had sued ex-BN Permatang candidate Dr Mazlan Ismail, Sistem Televisyen Malaysia (TV3) and Utusan Melayu (M) Bhd for defaming him.

Mazlan was sued for claiming that Anwar had bribed judges and prosecutors, while both TV3 and Utusan were sued for republishing Mazlan's remark.
Utusan's lawyer Azhar Arman Ali said he would seek his client's advice on whether to file an appeal.
Azhar had earlier argued that it was general knowledge that Anwar was guilty of corruption and sodomy.
Anwar was represented by Sangeet Kaur Deo.
The court has fixed July 26 for case management. - Mkini

Gov't plans to allow only female doctors to assist in childbirth

The government plans to allow only female doctors to assist in childbirth at public hospitals, Deputy Health Minister Dr Hilmi Yahaya said.
However, the plan is on hold because there are not enough female doctors in the obstetrics and gynaecology line, Hilmi told reporters in Balik Pulau yesterday.
"There are more female doctors (than male doctors) in public service but not many female doctors are interested in obstetrics and gynaecology.
"So we have to wait until there are more trained female doctors in this line," Bernama reported Hilmi as saying, after distributing Hari Raya hampers and contributions to 50 patients at Hospital Balik Pulau.
In 2013, the Health Ministry received a petition to only allow female doctors and nurses to work in the labour room and maternity ward, in the interest of the aurat (modesty) of Muslim patients.

The petition, signed by 6880 people, urged the ministry to incentivise women to take up obstetrics and gynaecology, and raise awareness among medical professionals of the auratrequirements during childbirth.
It is generally accepted that a Muslim woman can show only her face and hands to members of the opposite gender that she is not related to.
Some Muslim women have also opted to wear "birthing pants", which cover the mother's thighs, ankles and knees during childbirth to fulfil this obligation. - Mkini

Cabinet reshuffle disappoints Sarawak leaders

Several senior politicians from Sarawak have expressed disappointment over the federal cabinet reshuffle announced by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak yesterday.
Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) senior vice-president Douglas Uggah Embas reportedly said many had expected that another Sarawakian lawmaker would fill the plantation industries and commodities minister post he vacated.
“I am very disappointed that no MP from Sarawak was considered to take over my former position," Uggah is quoted as saying by The Borneo Post today.
"We believe one of our MPs is qualified enough to be appointed. I am speaking on behalf of the Pesaka wing in PBB."
Uggah resigned as minister following his appointment as a Sarawak deputy chief minister in May, after he won the Bukit Saban seat in the last state election.
Meanwhile, fellow deputy chief minister James Jemut Masing pointed out that Sarawak had lost one full federal minister’s post.
“As a fellow Sarawakian, I’m disappointed that Douglas Uggah’s position has been allocated to a West Malaysian politician," Masing is quoted as saying by The Borneo Post.
"We’ve lost one full minister, and in compensation we are given a deputy minister for Henry Sum as a replacement.
"I wish all the new appointees all the best in assisting the prime minister in facing the coming 14th general election."
However, the Parti Rakyat Sarawak president conceded that the federal cabinet members' appointment is the prime minister's sole prerogative.
The Borneo Post reported that their disappointment stemmed from earlier speculation that Kapit MP and Rural and Regional Development Deputy Minister Alexander Nanta Linggi or Saratok MP William Mawan Ikom would be appointed to the post vacated by Uggah.
Instead, the position went to Gerakan president Mah Siew Keong.
Meanwhile, Sarawak BN secretary Stephen Rundi said the state coalition had presented their case for the Kapit MP to represent the party and become minister, Bernama reported.
"But Sarawak BN acknowledges that the appointment of ministers is the prerogative of the prime minister.
"He has explained the rationale of his cabinet reshuffle and we respect his decision and stand steadfastly behind his leadership.
"And it is our ardent hope that he will include us in his bigger reshuffle in the near future and thank him for appointing Henry Sum Agong as domestic trade, cooperatives and consumerism deputy minister,"  Rundi, who is also PBB secretary-general, said.

Sarawak BN Backbenchers Club chairperson Abdullah Saidol also congratulated Henry on his appointment.
But he cautioned there may be serious deliberation among the Sarawak rural communities that had hoped a representative from the state's middle zone would be appointed as a full minister.
"As I said before, BN's big win in the state election should not be taken for granted by the federal government because if many promises are not fulfilled, this issue will be a pertinent political propaganda by the opposition in the next parliamentary election and this time it's going to be tough to counter," Abdullah said. - Mkini

Mahfuz: Did Husni, Wahid run away from 1MDB scandal?

Show more reactions
The exit of two ministers in charge of financial matters, Husni Hanadzlah and Abdul Wahid Omar, amid the ongoing 1MDB scandal is highly questionable, said PAS lawmaker Mahfuz Omar.
"Husni and Wahid's resignations leaves a thousand and one questions... Why did the two of them run away from the national scandal that is 1MDB?" the Pokok Sena MP asked in a statement today.
During yesterday's cabinet reshuffle, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak announced that Husni had resigned as second finance minister due to personal reasons.
Husni was later revealed to have also quit from all his positions in Umno and BN, including as Umno treasurer.
Meanwhile Wahid, who is a former Maybank CEO, reportedly sought a return to the private sector after his first term as senator ended on June 4.
"I'm confident that because of their cabinet position they know a lot hidden knowledge involving Najib in the country's big scandal (1MDB) to the point that they are unwilling to conspire with Najib," Mahfuz claimed.
He is confident that their cabinet exits were silent protests towards the prime minister, and urged Husni to join the rakyat to "save Malaysia".

Meanwhile, Perak Amanah invited Husni to join their ranks, believing that the Tambun MP had quit all his posts due to scandals plaguing Putrajaya.
Perak DAP chief Nga Kor Ming also praised the former second finance minister's decision to resign, again believing that this was due to the Najib administration's scandals.
Nga hoped that more government leaders would follow in Husni's footsteps.
Najib has consistently denied any wrong doing in the 1MDB scandal, while attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali has cleared the premier of criminal misconduct in cases linked to the state investment firm. - Mkini
