Mahathir’s nine weapons? Najib needs a tenth: Luck

Cry hard baby Najib but don’t cry again for the same reason

 The luckiest thing that happened to Najib Has  been equally lucky in finding Anwar as his presumptive opponent? Do not answer too quickly. The jury will bring in a verdict only around 2018. Najib has one advantage: after being overestimated for too long, he could be underestimated now.
Ironically, even his own UMNOis nervous. It has opted for a heads-I-win-tails-you-lose strategy: if the general election goes well, Najib can take credit. But if Najib’s appointment turns out to be a disappointment, there is an alibi ticked away in every spokesman’s pocket. The excuse that Congress has never declared a candidate is just that, an excuse. In fact, Congress has never fought an election without clarity about its PM nominee: even in 2004 it was Mrs Sonia Gandhi who was the undisputed leader, which is why she went to the President to claim the right to head a coalition that year.

if you were cooking up a formula for an ideal prime minister, the mixture would surely be a base of Solomon’s wisdom, with one ladle of Alexander’s strategic skills, topped off by the confidence of David, who slew heavily armed giants with a single sling-shot. But no recipe works without salt. Salt is luck.

Najibis free to withdraw support any time Kangkung Comedy Piece. Najib will soon regret for supporting Mukhriz Mahathir for Kedah Menteri Besar. Najib can’t stand on populist platform? Everything he do and every policy he make is for popularity sake. But when it all don’t work (like it always do) he said not being in populist platform? Your policy had fail the people and people are awaken from the racist policy which only benefit the few. When all your policy faild, you pull out your triumph card of Race and Religion. Malaysian are fed up with all this nonsense and demand for accountability, responsibility and transparency(ART)
Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir has warned that BN may lose the next general election if the government is only concerned about rolling out “the right policies” and neglects the question of popularity.Government subsidies are universal practised including the US and European governments. But not corrupt and mismanagement practices, which breed incompetence, waste and inefficiency all of which are reasons why nations become failed state  we open to any kind of probe on corruption.should not shy away from running the Kedah government by inciting Najib to withdraw support because we are not going to do that.The thin veil of protection draped around Najibis fiction.  UMNO campaign for 2018 will be around him, visually and thematically. A teaser has already been floated, starring Mahathir’s nine weapons weakest flank from which to launch its counter-offensive.  Mahathir has to do to blunt the nine weapons is mention is Rosmah

Corruption opens space for needle neddle me i will neddle you. Corruption is a slippery slope for anyone in power. UMNO should have stuck to its familiar narrative of populism and stability, for such advertising can be backed by evidence. The parallel assault on Anwars persona could also boomerang, since the electorate considers his can-do-must-do methods to be strength rather than weakness.

Ever wondered why the  Ex-PM’s official residence is situated at mine wonder land ? Because it’s a horse race, of course. Enter only if you have pace, staying power, solid training and a proven track record. The difficulty is not the starting bell, but that long and arduous home stretch, when character is tested along with your ideas. Media is only the bookie of this show. Follow the odds, but remember they can change mid-race too. Above all, arrange for the stars of the zodiac to be on your side. Good luck!

Cry as hard as you want to, but when you stop, make sure you never cry for the same reason again. If we don’t learn from our mistakes, we are doomed to repeat them. It’s all about falling into the same pattern again and again and again. It’s said madness is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. It’s just so hard to recognise our patterns, mostly because we do not wish to see them. Because acknowledging negative patterns means having to accept that we are flawed, our choices are flawed, and things need to change, and change, is never easy. But it is desirable, especially when you know that the biggest beneficiary is none other than you. We humans tend to either wallow in subservience or love the concept of ‘martyrdom’ and to feel that we are so noble that we have put others’ feelings and routines and needs ahead of our own. But in doing so, you are merely fuelling your own ego and sense of superiority with a ‘see, I’m so nice and giving and caring and selfless’. I can’t emphasise enough how much the self matters. It’s not about being selfish. It’s about being this amazing soul God put on this planet. Yes, go out and help others, take care of them, but not continually at the cost of yourself, your health or your dignity. That’s a negative pattern, and you need to break out of it, because you were born to live and laugh to your fullest potential, not just fuel and serve the potential of others.

Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah, speaking at a forum on electoral forum yesterday, says the Election Commission needs a new chairman who is not beholden to Barisan Nasional. – The Malaysian Insider pic by Nazir Sufari, January 14, 2014.

Umno’s Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah has joined the chorus calling for the removal of the Election Commission (EC) members, especially its chief, Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Yusof.

He said there was a need for a new EC chairman, who was impartial, in the wake of the public’s loss of confidence in the commission.

“We need someone who is passionate, independent and who does not say things on behalf of BN,” he said, referring to the ruling coalition Barisan Nasional. ”You are not helping BN anyway,” he said at an electoral forum last night.

Newly elected chairperson of electoral reform coalition Bersih 2.0 Maria Chin Abdullah had called for the removal of all EC members, citing loss of confidence.

She had said a petition drive would be launched to be delivered to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

The statement came in the wake of an admission by former EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman that past redelineation exercises were designed to keep certain parties in power.

Abdul Rashid led the EC in managing six out of the 13 general elections, as well as four redelineation exercises.

Saifuddin, who is CEO of the Global Movement of Moderates Foundation, said a more independent EC would enable both BN and the opposition Pakatan Rakyat pact to come together to negotiate on the proposed redelineation exercise.

PKR strategic director Rafizi Ramli said the people had talked about reforming the EC for years and had even taken to the streets in support of electoral reforms.

He agreed that both Abdul Aziz and his deputy, Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar, needed to be removed but noted that there was a “total mobilisation” by BN in defence of the two officials.

Rafizi said the lack of response from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to Abdul Rashid’s admission was a manifestation of how BN was retreating instead of going forward towards bipartisanship to strengthen democratic institutions.

On the redelineation exercise, the first-term Pandan MP said PKR’s stand was that it should be done on a basis that ensured equitability and fairness rather than the number of seats.

“Any change has to be structural in nature. The dissatisfaction is not in the number of seats but how the seats were gerrymandered in such a way that Parliament does not represent the voices on the ground.”

He said the matter could only be resolved if all political parties agreed on an acceptance variance on the size of constituencies and an assurance that minority interests would be looked after.

Meredith L Weiss, visiting associate professor in Southeast Asia Studies at John Hopkins University, suggested that there was a need to come up with a mechanism on campaign financing to enable the EC to monitor not just candidates’ spending during general elections but also those who are donating to their campaigns.

Social activist Hishammuddin Rais alleged that the EC was doing a “con job” and that Pakatan Rakyat or any other alternative force would never win the general election if the same structure was in place.
