If MB Kedah is to be changed, hopefully it be ...[updated]

Have not commented on the Mukhriz coup and will not.

Only thing we are will say is Dato Mukhriz knew it was coming. If we could see from afar several of his wrong initial moves and remedial actions that need done but was not done, how come his staff, or inner circle or advisers or elders could not see and advise him?

Many are blaming Dato Ahmad Bashah for organising the coup. Well .. before this there were several attempts already. If it is not Bashah, it would have been anyone. The unhappiness have percolate to the ground for quite awhile.   

All the arguments put forward by pro-mukhriz and protun people in conversation and debate on the coup have been purely academic and mere formality.

The reality is he does not have the majority support from UMNO Kedah, BN ADUNs and his own appointed exco members. As far as our sources claimed, he does not have the support of KCS and Istana too.

The situation is untenable for him to lead the state.

It would be a sad ending for him as he could have been the next layer of core leaders of this country. If he is insistent of not taking up any federal position, his politics could end here.

While we disagree with Tun M now, it does not mean there is anomisity towards Tun M or Mukhriz. He Mukhriz remain a friend.

Whether he vacate tomorrow or undergo the state assembly process, he should respect the party directive.

The talk was there were some names presented but was rejected by the Royal Council. However, such happening have been denied. The paper have put up the above names. One rumour going around is the investiture will be Monday tomorrow.

By the look of it, that may not be possible but our reliable informer said, the saga is supposed to be short and any resistance will be over in a week or two. We will have to see ....

What is heard is that it is decided that Dato Mohd Rawi of Langkawi will be next MB?

Rawi is a good man and was one of the trusted exco member of Mukhriz. As we understand from Kedah politicians, businessmen, civil servants and even the Langkawi folks, he may not be the better choice.

There are reasons why he is not appropriate but we are not going to say. We will butt out.

The upstairs need to find out themselves and decide. They are supposed to do the vetting. Furthermore, the process to come to a choice is not so simple.

Given to us and the many other rational and concerned UMNO Kedah leaders spoken to, the following is our preference:

Kaghut dia ada but no one is perfect.

He is the best choice on paper and experience. Should appease all the various interest groups except the power crazy, and manipulative Dato Ahmad Lebai Sudin.

If Ku Rahman is not the answer to Kedah's leadership woes and still cannot stay there long enough, then we'll put it on record that Kedahan does not deserve a good and clever leader. What happened to Mukhriz happened in almost the same manner to Tan Sri Sanusi Junid.

Kedah deserve the predicament they are in because they are not thinking right.

True that leadership is not based on who is the most knowledgeable and the best reciter of the Quran  but on acceptance of the jemaah. However, this is a different thing all together. It is about politics to put a leader that will institute good governace and bring a better life for the people.

Unfortunately, the process towards that as practise by the political jemaah is the not so dynamic kampong politics!

Mukhriz is too urban and too much an outsider to them. Pity ....

Update February 1st 12:50 PM

The newspapers frontpage today are focus on two issues from Kedah. Firstly, Dato Mukhriz's strongly worded statement to warn the ADUN and 14 Kedah UMNO leaders for being disloyal to the Sultan. The statement below:

A commentator raised a question of the letter:
Dia sebut ... "saya telah menerima khabar..." -- Dari siapa?

Ada disebut pula "saya dimaklumkan..." -- Oleh siapa?

Adakah dia ada mengadap Sultan kerana akhbar hanya laporkan Najib yang mengadap Sultan? Mukhriz hanya mengadap Pemangku.

Sultan hanya mengeluarkan titah perintah dan kenyataan serta meluahkan rasa murka melalui Setiausaha Sulit seperti yang terjadi di Selangor. 
Sinar Harian and Utusan Malaysia believed Mukhriz's leadership fate rest on the meeting today between the BN elected rep and Kedah regency Council. One SMS from a Kedahan came in to express below:
"... the Kedah royal household may be doing a big disfavour to the people of Kedah by wanting to examine the true sentiment among the elected reps as reported in The Star today. If the federal government does not support the Kedah government the people will ultimately be the victims of the decision of Majlis Memangku to uphold its constitutional rights tq."

It has two implication. The Regency Council should take into account the interest of the federal government i.e. party leadership interest.

The meeting serve the purpose of understanding the feeling of the people as indicative of the position of the elected rep. Will they be meeting all 14 at one go or each one by one?

Certainly, not by having such shallow approach to gauge people support as below: 

Show of support to Mukhriz have been lukewarm. [Read Catatan Zabidi here.] Even during a talk in Sangkang, Jerlun last week, only 400 attended and the number was aided by at least 100 outsiders, noticably from Perak.  

The initiative tonight seemed a last ditch attempt to display some numbers. How will that serve the purpose when the poster is clearly targeted to bring in non-political young football fans?

The leadership change has to be in accordance with the Constitution and Undang-Undang Tubuh Negeri (state constitution). It seemed the approach taken is similar to the one that happened in Perak under Dato Muhammad Nizar. The likelihood is it could be similar since all Undang-Undang Tubuh Negeri emulated the first one from Johor.
Nevertheless, what does the Undang-Undang Tubuh Negeri say? So far no quote have been found.

People like to sound arabic these days. Perhaps now islam is the preferred approach since 90% of the chinese votes are not coming back. U know it, i know it, we all know it. Call it a spade a spade, gentleman.

Thats why words like jemaah, like u said above, ukhwah islam, fitnah etc cropped up very often these days. Got no problem with those words as the meanings are clear. But we all take unfair advantage on these. Acceptance of jemaah? Haha. Well, a thief will always accept other thieves. Birds same feather, remember?

Dont worry those are all analogies, dont hang me for that.

Why not ahmad bashah wait for next term? Just ask najib to not name mukhriz and all is well. Afterall you said it out loud mukhriz has no solid base in kedah? So by not naming him for next election, solve all problem. And ah for lebai as well. Why the rush?

This case not like sanusi's or osman aroff's. Get that right first.

Ps- adenan should be worry and if he is politically clever, he should start his moves now. He is very outspoken on many things and putrajaya dont like that. And ah zahid said if they love adenan then translate that into vote. Mind you sarawak people, going by what happening in kedah, there is no guarantee adenan will be there once you voted for him. Politic is dirty.

Please make a wise selection.
The MB of Kedah should be someone who is:

1. Smart and highly-educated
2. Hard working
3. Honest and clean
4. Experienced person
5. Capable
6. Well-mannered
7. Well-accepted by the people of Kedah

Without each of the's just a waste of time.

Di saat rakyat Negeri Kedah Darul Aman sedang bergembira meraikan Ulangtahun Keputeraan Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Kedah yang ke-88, sekumpulan pemimpin UMNO negeri ini telah bertindak mendesak saya berundur dari jawatan Menteri Besar.

Tindakan 12 Ketua Bahagian dan dua Timbalan Ketua Bahagian mengheret sama ketua-ketua sayap dan pemimpin muda dalam UMNO mengadakan sidang media di Alor Setar pada 20 Januari 2016 lalu adalah tidak bertanggungjawab.

Malah sebilangan yang hadir pada sidang media tersebut telah maklum kepada saya bahawa mereka tidak mengetahui terlebih dahulu tujuan dan intipati kenyataan yang dibuat. Saya percaya desakan mereka tidak mewakili suara majoriti ahli UMNO dan yang lebih penting lagi, kehendak rakyat Negeri Kedah.

Perbuatan kumpulan ini telah mencemar pelbagai acara sambutan Ulangtahun Keputeraan Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Kedah.

Selaku Pengerusi Badan Perhubungan UMNO Negeri Kedah dan Menteri Besar, saya telah menerima khabar sesungguhnya Duli Tuanku Sultan dan Yang Teramat Mulia Ahli-Ahli Jemaah Pemangku Sultan Kedah tersinggung dengan perbuatan kumpulan tersebut.

Yang lebih dikesali apabila tindakan itu disertai beberapa Ahli Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri Kedah yang sudah berikrar taat setia kepada Raja Pemerintah ketika mengangkat sumpah jawatan masing-masing.

Turut mendukacitakan, rentetan dari sidang media tersebut, enam daripada sembilan Ahli Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri tidak menghadiri Mesyuarat EXCO Kerajaan Negeri Kedah pada hari Rabu, 27 Januari 2016 yang lalu. Ini jelas sekali menyalahi peraturan pelantikan mereka sebagai Penjawat Awam dan ingkar dengan sumpah jawatan yang diangkat di hadapan Raja Pemerintah, seperti yang termaktub di dalam Undang-Undang Tubuh Kerajaan Kedah.

Sebagai Ahli Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri, keengganan menghadiri Mesyuarat EXCO menjejaskan proses pentadbiran dan perancangan yang telah diatur oleh Kerajaan Negeri dalam melaksanakan program dan aktiviti pembangunan untuk rakyat di negeri ini. Saya dimaklumkan bahawa Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Kedah dan Yang Teramat Mulia Ahli-Ahli Jemaah Pemangku Sultan turut murka dengan keingkaran Ahli-Ahli Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri berkenaan.

Selaku Pengerusi Badan Perhubungan UMNO Negeri Kedah, saya dengan rasa rendah diri memohon ampun kepada Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Kedah dan Yang Teramat Mulia Ahli-Ahli Jemaah Pemangku Sultan Kedah di atas perbuatan segelintir ahli UMNO yang telah mencemari kemuliaan Duli Tuanku Sultan dan kemeriahan majlis sambutan Hari Keputeraan Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Kedah.

Saya mendesak agar kesemua 14 Ketua UMNO Bahagian yang terlibat secara langsung mahupun tidak dengan sidang media pada 20 Januari 2016 lalu, dan enam orang Ahli Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri yang tidak hadir Mesyuarat EXCO pada 27 Januari 2016 segera memohon maaf secara rasmi kepada Kebawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Kedah dan Yang Teramat Mulia Ahli-Ahli Jemaah Pemangku Sultan Kedah.

Sehingga kemelut ini selesai, semestinya setiap Ahli Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri dan Ahli Dewan Udangan Negeri melaksanakan tanggungjawab yang diamanahkan oleh Raja Pemerintah dan rakyat baginda, seperti yang termaktub di dalam Undang-Undang Tubuh Kerajaan Negeri Kedah.

Menteri Besar Kedah Darul Aman
Pengerusi Badan Perhubungan UMNO Negeri Kedah

Apa punya auta pengawai Mukhriz yang sediakan kenyataan ini. Mana boleh Mukhriz name dropping nama SUltan Kedah?????

Dia sebut ... "saya telah menerima khabar..." -- Dari siapa?

Ada disebut pula "saya dimaklumkan..." -- Oleh siapa?

Adakah dia ada mengadap Sultan kerana akhbar hanya laporkan Najib yang mengadap Sultan? Mukhriz hanya mengadap Pemangku.

Sultan hanya mengeluarkan titah perintah dan kenyataan serta meluahkan rasa murka melalui Setiausaha Sulit seperti yang terjadi di Selangor.


Mukhriz pun sudah macam Geng Loceng

Budak budak kecik sekarang ramai yg sokong team bola tak kira lah liga malaysia atau epl.
Tapi kalau team manager atau player main macam hampas. Budak budak ni pun dah pandai buat penilaian kata team manager atau player mana yg patut di buang.
Jadi pengulas sukan tak payah lah nak back up lebih lebih sebab budak budak pun dah tahu macamana nak menilai permainan yg dia org tengok sendiri live di tv.
Cerita tactic tu buang masa saja sebab budak budak ni nak tengok result jer samaada games hari ni atau kedudukan team mereka sepanjang musim.
So baik lah para pengulas ni pergi cari makan tempat lain yg lebih berkat..
