When we received an e-mail of the PKR proposed shadow cabinet, we were having tea with a friend from Utusan Malaysia.
All of us laughed at the idea of Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim becoming Prime Minister.
Immediatey, we called a PAS friend to tell him that Anwar is the shadow Prime Minister and Dato Seri Hadi is Deputy Prime Minister I.
Again we laughed.
Thus it is unbelievable for Utusan to give frontpage coverage to Papagomo's posting. Page 3 or 4 can lah .... but not frontpage. [Read Papagomo here.]
No way Anwar
That explains why Mustafa Ali was upset with Azmin's men Shuhaimi for announcing this list. [Read Outsyed the Box here.]
It is obvious to fortify the public support for Anwar to be the Prime Minister if they win.
Hadi may not give support to Anwar if he does not give any leeway for PAS's Islamic agenda.
Nik Aziz may have given support for Anwar Ibrahim but God knows where is the caveat in his statement. He could change his mind or forgot what he said or dozed off in midst of being reminded of his past support. He cannot refuse an Islamic agenda if Hadi start to assert.
PAS practises tarkiyah. They do not WYSIWYG. What is that? Go find out.
Karpal Singh maybe his counsel in the recent sodomy II case but there could be more to it.
Giving support to Anwar is in contradiction to his principle on morality of a leader. He is usually uncompromisable on principle issues. Why did he change his stand?
It only means DAP is merely using Anwar for gaining political mileage.
Another fact is that they have mentioned of the rights of non-Malays to be Prime Minister for many times. They are right and it is a non-issue. But it could mean that their support for Anwar is temporary. They would want to have one of their own as Prime Minister.
We predict the Lims plan to make Lim Guan Eng as first Chinese Prime Minister. They will insist on being sole Deputy Prime Minister. Why then did Karpal Singh psyche Lim Guan Eng in public as Pakatan's Deputy Prime Minister in their spat? No DPM I or II or III? Only DPM!
Furthermore, we have heard a DAP friend said on too recently, "No way Anwar will be Prime Minister!" Only different is he have always thought on Tengku Razaleigh can be Prime Minister.
Meaningless Shadow Cabinet
|Labour's shadow cabinet formed in October 2010. Read UK's The Daily Mail here.
Just as we described Pakatan's Shadow Budget as meaningless, the same applies here.
Why do they need three Deputy Prime Ministers? Does it mean the order of heir apparent to the Prime Minister is in the sequence of Haji Hadi, followed by Lim Kit Siang and the uncertain third from Sabah or Sarawak? We dare to bet Kit Siang is not comfortable.
All the three Deputy Prime Minister, in which two are already confirmed component party President, are powerless and without a portfolio. What is the purpose of having three DPMs then? Does it take three plus Dato Seri Nizar Jamaluddin to shadow Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin?
For a shadow cabinet, why do you need Minister for PM Department? Just put one to correspond the specific portfolio.
Imagine having the Party President of the acclaimed main party denigrated to only one of the minister in the PM Department. It shows Azmin doesn't think highly of his party President.
|Cabinet meeting in session?
If PKR have 20 Minister, Syed Akbar said:
... if DAP and PAS are also to have equal numbers of Ministers, the Pakatan will have a 60 member Cabinet (20 PKR, 20 DAP and 20 PAS). Assuming PAS and DAP win more seats than PKR then it could be be 20 PKR Ministers, 30 DAP Ministers and 40 PAS Ministers - a 90 member Cabinet. They can have their Cabinet meetings at the Shah Alam Stadium.
If it is filled by someone from Sabah, then there is no Minister from Sarawak. Vici versa when it is filled by Sarawakian.
Actually there is one Full Minister as in Sarawak's DAP State Sec Gen, Chong Chien Jen for Higher Education.
But why none from Sabah?
|Azmin want Home Ministry for vendetta?
In this list, he is replaced by Azmin.
It would certainly be convenient and handy to erase past evidences and stop investigations of police reports. Is it time for vengence?
Don't tell us that Deputy President of PAS, Ahmad Sabu is left to still only do ceramah day in and day out when Pakatan rules. He would want to be a Minister too.
With DAPSY Youth, Anthony Loke as full Minister for Housing and Local Authority, wouldn't it make Cocky and Arrogant Dear Leader and Secretary General, Lim Guan Eng less relevent as Penang Minister?
|Insult on Lim Guan Eng
Perhaps it is PKR's way of insulting him for his treatment on Dr Mansor and other PKR leaders and DAP Penang's treatment of PKR in Penang.
Why should PKR's Dr Lee Boon Chye be given preference over DAP's Dr Tan Seng Giaw for Health Ministry?
Is the Ministerial position for Pakatan Rakyat women only meant for PKR's Zuraidah "Mat Lampir" Kamaruddin?
There is a lot more laugh in their list of cabinet members.
Nizar Jamaluddin for Education? This guy is brain dead. He is more qualified to enter special kids class than be Minister of Education. :)
Husam for MITI? Expect many more failed investments, holiday trade missions and non-starter announcements like his highway in Kelantan. Muahahaha ...
Tian Chua for Agriculture Minister? What does a SUARAM activist know about agriculture and rural economics? Kah kah kah ... stunt act on cows?
Elizabeth Wong for Tourism? Turning the whole country into I-City? Make sure she uses the right pictures for Tourism promotional billboards. Hahaha ...
Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man for Works Minister? Wakakaka ...
Nurul Izzah for Federal Territory and Urban Well Beings Minister? It is obviously a defensive ploy to face Raja Nong Chik. Hehehe ...
Will she visit the delapidated areas of Federal Territories on her fourth year as Minister like she did at Lembah Pantai?We can go on and on on the many misfit appointments, rightfully appointed but missing, and the unqualified ones.
Thus why did Utusan Malaysia gave them a frontpage?
