Pn Ineffective As Opposition
One year after becoming Malaysia’s opposition, Perikatan Nasional (PN), has failed as an opposition bloc, and will continue to be one for the foreseeable future, unless the leaders from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) and Pas can change their thinking.
Political analyst Associate Professor Dr Azeem Fazwan Ahmad Farouk said the opposition bloc also lacks charismatic, young, and dynamic leaders who can appeal to Malaysians across the racial and religious divide. He suggested PN to try and convince former Umno Youth chief, Khairy Jamaluddin (below), to be a part of the opposition.
Khairy, who was against Umno joining Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) so-called Unity Government, was sacked from the party in January for violating its Constitution in the 15th General Election (GE15). “Bersatu and Pas do not have leaders that appeal to a multiracial and multireligious voter base,” said Azeem, director of the Centre for Policy Research, Universiti Sains Malaysia.
“(Tan Sri) Muhyiddin (Yassin) and Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi (Awang) are 76, and Datuk Seri Hamzah (Zainuddin) is 66. Former prime minister Muhyiddin also has legal battles to sort out. “Khairy will be 48 next month. Although he was an Umno man, he is still well-received by voters of all races and religions.”
Azeem said Khairy, or someone like him, is the type of person PN should consider having on its team. Khairy, or KJ to his ‘fans’, has already said he is “PN-friendly”, although he has not joined any of the PN component parties, which includes Gerakan.
“However, I do not think Khairy would want to be associated with Pas, unless the party softens its stance. He can act as the bridge between the so-called Islamists, and Malaysians of all races and religions,” said Azeem. “That is how PN can move forward without alienating other Malaysians, and remain true to its voter base.”
Azeem said a large group of voters are unhappy with the current government but would stick with PH rather than opt for a coalition seen as overly pro-Islam. “PN and Pas, in particular, only seem to raise issues that affect its voter base in the Malay heartland. So, they talk about banning concerts, such as the recent one by Coldplay,” said Azeem.
“How is that helping the country? The opposition must look at ways it can help Malaysia become better and show it can bring prosperity to the citizens if it is in power. “It must show that it is a coalition for all Malaysians as we are a multireligious, multicultural and multilingual nation.”
Separately, Azeem said Malaysia needs politicians – from both sides of the divide – to be more vocal in raising issues in Parliament. “Opposition parties are at a disadvantage in this case, as their effectiveness is dependent on the Speaker of the House, who is usually sympathetic towards the government,” said Azeem.
“For many years, we have heard about reforming the electoral and political systems, but since the fall of Barisan Nasional in 2018, nothing has been done towards that end. “We need to make the political system a lot more effective and give politicians more of a voice,” he added. - Graig Nunis
Barisan kabinet PN,bersih lagi kabinet Ikea...
Heboh dah walaun sebut Samsuri jadi PM ke 11. Mana pergi Sanusi? Sebelum ni kata Sanusi? Cepat betul dia tukar. Macam lagu Lestari, Sekelip Mata Kau Berubah. Walaun Kedah tak marah ke? Ini menjelaskan yang sebenarnya walaun pun tak fikir Sanusi layak. Tapi sebab tak ada pilihan, jadi nak tak nak terpaksa jugalah angkat nama Sanusi. Bila dapat je Samsuri, terus buang Sanusi.
Tapi takkanlah Samsuri nak langkau kedudukan dalam PN. Setakat hari ni, Mahiaddin masih lagi pengerusi PN. Jadi rasanya, sebelum berangan jadi PM, Samsuri kena jadi Pengerusi PN dulu. Baru betul! Tengok muka dalam Kabinet bayangan ni memang tak boleh belah la. Hampir semua ada ceritanya. Samsuri sendiri pun ada isu jual tanah pada NGO isteri pada harga yang sangat murah. Hamzah popular dengan isu anaknya sorokkan minyak masak bersubsidi. Wan Saiful Wan Jan dengan isu Wan Jana Wibawa. Maksud aku Jana Wibawa. Dah tak ada muka yang clean ke?
Anak Hadi bakal MB Terengganu...
Itu belum diungkit lagi cerita kelakar masing-masing. Wan Ahmad Fayhsal top dengan cetak duit dan surat sokongan, Zailah dengan cerita pandu lori tanpa kunci, Dr. Halimah dengan isu makan menu Rahmah boleh dapat anak autism, Siti Mastura dengan kes fitnah Lee Kuan Yew dan banyak lagi
Ada sesetengah tu masa jadi menteri zaman tebuk atap dulu pun tak reti buat kerja macam Radzi Jidin, Tuan Ibharim, Taki dan Marzuk. Si Fawwaz tu jadi MP pun tak reti nak selesaikan isu rakyat. Kalau beginilah muka yang diketengahkan, dan kalau betul muka-muka ni jadi menteri, memang jahanam la negara dibuatnya. Sama macam masa zaman Pagoh dan Bera jadi PM dulu. Hancur!
Tapi ini mungkin khayalan walaun je kot. Tengok PAS je yang dominasi. Lelaki je pulak tu. Dah tak ada tokoh wanita ke dalam PN? Bersatu pun berapa kerat je. Oh lupa. Ramai MP Bersatu dah sokong PMX. Patut la tak tersenarai. Lupa lak. Guane boh? - Raja Gelap II
Hadi telah mengesahkan memang Atok dan Hadi telah berkomplot nak jatuhkan kerajaan PH 2018. Sebab itu Atok tak mahu serahkan jawatan kepada Anwar seperti yang dijanjikan.Atok kata,dia dikhianati. Rupa2nya itu semua hanyalah sandiwara belaka....
Benarlah PAS tak bayar hutang pencetak...
Today 6/12/23,Israel has bombed another school in Gaza...
