Astaghfirullah !!

Pemimpin utama kita tidak mahu belajar untuk menjadi pemimpin yang baik seperti pemimpin-pemimpin banyak negara yang sudah maju. Disebaliknya Najib lebih cenderung untuk mengambil tauladan dan pelajaran dari pemimpin-pemimpin negara-negara yang tidak senonoh yang tidak mengambil tahu hal rakyat dan masa depan negara mereka.

Najib mendapati sangat susah untuk menjadi manusia pemimpin yang baik dan dihormati oleh rakyatnya dan masyarakat antarabangsa. Bagi Najib membuat baik itu sangat menyusahkan beliau. Beliau sanggup untuk terus mentadbir negara walaupun beliau sendiri tahu yang beliau telah merosakkan negara dengan begitu teruk dan tidak sepadan sekali dengan nama Malaysia yang sebelum ini dianggap sebagai negara contoh dalam banyak hal dan bidang.

Najib amat susah untuk mengakui bahawa rakyat sekarang bukan boleh diperbodohkan lagi. Beliau masih tidak menyedari yang beliau sudah dipandang rendah bukan sahaja oleh masyarakat Malaysia sendiri tetapi oleh masyarakat antarabangsa sekali. Najib selalu sahaja hendak melakukan ‘equation’ kemampuan berfikir beliau dengan kemampuan rakyat berfikir.

Najib masih percaya yang tekanan untuk beliau berhenti itu sengaja diada-adakan oleh setengah pihak seolah-olah mereka yang menekan beliau untuk berhenti itu suka hendak melakukannya. Tidak ada siapa yang bergembira untuk melakukan tekanan terhadap sesiapa untuk berhenti, tetapi keadaan yang membuatkan banyak pihak mahukan Najib berhenti sahaja kerana beliau terlalu menyusahkan rakyat ramai.

Tidak juga ada yang mahu mendesak Ahli-Ahli Jemaah Kabinet untuk berundur tetapi keadaan yang mendesak yang menyebabkan ramai yang mahu Menteri-Menteri Kabinet berhenti kerana terlalu lemah dan gagal untuk melaksanakan tugas mereka sebagai Ahli-Ahli Kabinet negara.

Kabinet membiarkan apa sahaja yang dilakukan oleh Menteri Kewangan negara selama ini. Hanya sekarang sahaja yang ada suara dari kabinet untuk bersetuju yang Najib perlu menjawab persoalan yang diajukan oleh rakyat, sedangkan mereka jugalah yang bertanggungjawab kenapa Najib sebagai PM dan Menteri Kewangan bebas untuk melakukan kemungkaran terhadap ekonomi dan politik negara. Mereka mendiamkan diri sahaja melihat 1MDB diperlakukan sebagai syarikat ‘SPV’ oleh setengah pihak yang bertaraf kroni terhadap Najib untuk menyelongkar semua khazanah negara untuk diperaidkan sesama sendiri.

Apabila keadaan sudah menjadi tidak menentu lagi baru lah kedengaran pemimpin dalam Kabinet seperti Muhyiddin mengeluarkan perasaan tidak puas hati terhadap apa yang berlaku terhadap 1MDB. Itu pun bercakap disebalik tabir sahaja. Pandangan beliau itu tersebar hanya apabila ada orang yang tidak dijemput dalam perjumpaan tertutup itu menyiarkan ucapan beliau dalam media massa alternatif yang menjadi ‘viral’ itu. Dalam pada tidak bersetuju dengan apa yangb berlaku didalam 1MDB, sebulat suara pula Kabinet membenarkan untuk disediakan RM950 juta untuk ‘standby credit’ untuk 1MDB itu. Apa semuanya ini?

Sudahlah Najib tidak bertanggungjawab, Ahli-Ahli Jemaah Kabinet yang bergaya dan glamor semuanya itu lebih lagi tidak bertanggungjawab dan tidak mahu menerima ‘accountability’ terhadap jenayah 1MDB terhadap negara. Semuanya bercakap terhadap kepentingan agama, bangsa dan negara, tetapi kita lihat agamanya tiada, bangsanya kehilangan identiti dan negaranya menjadi kucar kacir.

Sekarang tidak ada siapa dikalangan Ahli-Ahli Jemaah Kabinet bersedia untuk meletakkan jawatan untuk menunjukan sikap bertanggungjawab dan menjaga maruah kepimpinan mereka dikhalayak ramai.

Hakikatnya semua Jemaah Kabinet wajar berhenti sahaja kerana mereka tidak faham fungsi jawatan yang mereka rebutkan selama ini.  Orang nak jadi Menteri mereka pun nak jadi Menteri. Apabila sudah jadi Menteri mereka tidak pun memahami apakah fungsi mereka dalam Kabinet itu.

Sesungguhnya semua mereka ini adalah pemimpin-pemimpin yang ‘confused’ dan tidak mempunyai harga diri, baik sebagai orang berbangsa Melayu tetapi juga sebagai seorang yang mengaku sebagai penganut agama yang suci kita ini. Astagfirullah!!

Najib was not elected by the people to be the PM

Najib is on the offensive attack on Dr Mahathir incessantly through his blog writings. The latest of his writing Najib alleges Dr Mahathir as telling lies and all the claims by the former PM against him were untrue. However Najib does not put effort to explain why USD1.16 billion were transferred to Jho Lo’s account from 1MDB. It has been validated that any money transacted in 1MDB has to get the approval of Finance Minister who is also the advisor to 1MDB.

The public has conclusive perception that Najib as the advisor of the 1MDB was the sole person who decides everything on the money dealings in the debt-ridden Company by guarantee now known as GLC.  There is no necessity to for Najib to deny the fact, as no one can believe him any longer. Najib has to tell lies stage by stage until he believes his own lies.

Najib insists that he was democratically elected to the position he holds now and Mahathir should stop attacking him as attacking him is attacking the people. He emphasizes that Mahathir should keep away from the government’s goings on and just leave it to the current generation to deal with politics of this country. This is the point that I want to touch briefly as it is not true that he was elected by the people to the PM’s position.

The Prime Minister of this country in actuality is not elected by the people of all races. He was made to be the Prime Minister not even by all the Malays. A Prime Minister Najib is elected and made to be the PM only by Malays in UMNO.

That is the system practiced in Malaysia ever since we achieved independence. Whoever the President of the party is will be elected to be the PM as UMNO is leading the ruling components. The president of UMNO who is also an elected representative to parliament will be endorsed by the Federal Legislative as they have the command of the House.

So by convention whoever among the Legislative members wants to be the PM must strive to be the president of UMNO as that was agreed among the component members of Barisan Nasional (BN). For decades the presidents of UMNO were elected by few thousand delegates in the annual general meeting of UMNO. The almost thirty million Malaysians have got nothing to do with the election of the Prime Minister.

The president of UMNO used to be decided by only three thousand odds delegates. It was only in the last party election where the number of eligible UMNO Malay voters for party leadership was moved up to forty six thousand delegates.

Hence Najib’s claim that he was elected by the cross-sections of the rakyat was utterly baseless and unfounded. When budding and good quality leaders in UMNO were ostracized and systematically ousted from the highest governing lineup in UMNO the choice of the party presidents and their lineups were the choice between the weak and the treacherous leaders.

UMNO has been in vacuum of leadership to the extent that the party has to be dependable on the scums and lowly categorized leaders like Najib and his colleagues in the UMNO Supreme Council and the Cabinet.That’s why UMNO is looked down upon by the ordinary people as the party fails to propose and to upfront viable leaders for them to rest their hope upon for their generation.

The current system of electing a Prime Minister is only good if UMNO can produce to the public the most viable and astute leader to manage the whole nation with high magnanimity and great patriotism for the people to lay their hope for better Malaysia.

The Cabinet should resign, and compel Najib to quit

The concepts of accountability in the Cabinet and in the House of Parliament have to be taken seriously and it should now become the fundamental and cardinal culture in managing the government (Executive) and the Legislative. The absence of the elements of accountability among the Legislative members and the executives (Cabinet) is the main contributing factor that drags the nation into the situation of uncertainty of today.

We can see with our naked eyes that most of the cabinet members and the Legislative are trying to renounce their accountability for their misjudged and miscalculated decisions they made in the Cabinet. As an example many among the cabinet members were trying to lump the blames to the PM alone over the issues surrounding 1MDB. As I have mentioned in the last few postings if Najib resigns everyone in the cabinet ought to go together and simultaneously with him. In other words the whole cabinet should resign too.

The MP of Pekan is equal in status with the rest of the MPs in the Legislative body. The House of Parliament appoints him as the Prime Minister to lead the cabinet as the Prime Minister. Najib and the rest of the Cabinet members are in essence equal but since he is appointed to lead the cabinet he is what is judged as the ‘First among Equals’ by being the Prime Minister.

Therefore all decisions by the government are Cabinet decisions and all are collective in nature. Whether the decisions are righteous or debauched each and every one who sits in the cabinet is accountable for it. Despite of the massive outcry from the public about the bad conduct of the debt laden 1MDB the Cabinet was acting in ensemble with the PM Najib by approving the standby credit of RM950 million to pay for miscellanies of 1MDB just over three months ago.

In the House of the Legislature all of its members are also accountable to their constituents and making decision against the wish of their constituents is labeled as an act of contempt against the people who elect them to the House. Now each and every one among the members of Parliament should exercise serious introspection on their own self and look inward to know whether they are up there for their constituents or for their own big bellies.

It’s too intimidating to see and to hear the same Cabinet members who allow the bad goings on in 1MDB to plot for the expelling of the PM with whom they together made all decisions on 1MDB. The finest thing for them to do is to ask for Najib to quit together with them.

They should vacate all their positions in the Cabinet and give way for others who are more credible to craft a new nation that is frantically needed by the people.

Najib is ready to be replaced, but not by his disloyal mate

At last Muhyiddin is saying it. All board members of 1MDB should be sacked and call in the police to investigate all the goings-on in 1MDB. The closed-door meeting with quite a number of UMNO leaders was videotaped and the video is going on viral in the social media presently.

To many observers it is a strong signal from him that he is not with Najib anymore and we do not know how to reconcile with the decision made in UMNO supreme Council meeting two weeks ago that wanted Najib, Muhyiddin and the rest of the supreme council members to unite and move forward with the agenda to transform the nation in a team. The council meeting agreed to the notion that people outside UMNO are trying to split the leadership lineup.

However in the closed door meeting Muhyiddin in the open wants the whole bunch of board members of 1MDB to be sacked and call in the police to investigate. Well, it’s good to say that but the question is why that kind of statement came out too late when 1MDB is already devastated and damaged? Calling for the board members to be sacked could mean to include the advisor of the devastated company that is Najib himself.

Nonetheless we have to come to term that Muhyiddin statement was part of the movements in UMNO to oust Najib as the party president and the head of Malaysian government. Of course it is also the gracious move to put Muhyiddin as replacement for Najib. Muhyiddin says he stands by his words and something has got to be done to put 1MDB issue to bed.

By the words of Muhyiddin in the closed door meeting, we can simply deduce that the non-existence of accountability in our leadership these days. 1MDB issue is the issue against the whole Cabinet because it’s the government that decided to form 1MDB and decision was cabinet decision.

Muhyiddin and the rest should have quitted the Cabinet if he had been in disagreement on how 1MDB was managed by Najib and the whole board members of the MOF company by guarantee. But he was not ready to quit the job and to leave the glamorous job in the Cabinet but instead he severally decided to approve the RM950 million standby credit for the ailing 1MDB. Wasn't that a irresponsible act?

If Muhyiddin and the rest of the Cabinet were smart as he claims in the video the Cabinet should have mitigated the issues surrounding the Cabinet approved company 1MDB years ago before turning too sour like today. By keeping quiet and allowing the Prime Minister and the Finance Minister to do anything without hindrances is very irresponsible on the part of the Cabinet.

Muhyiddin is like distancing himself from Najib and it is an act of disowning accountability on the devastated 1MDB. It’s very discriminating act to lump all burdens and accountability on Najib alone. Each and everyone in the Cabinet should be severally accountable over the 1MDB issues. If Najib goes all should go together with him.

We ought to resign to the fact Najib had made erroneous decisions because of the weak and clueless Cabinet members. The other bigger problem is the Cabinet members do not understand to appreciate the spirit of accountability. This is a very huge disappointment of the rakyat towards the Cabinet members. 

Najib should now realize that he is at the verge of licking his wounds alone without anyone in the Cabinet to support him like the way they used to apple-polish him before 1MDB issue surfaces. Muhyiddin and many Cabinet members are now finding excuses to place Najib in isolation. They are moving against Najib with the absence of decorum and ethics.

Surely one of the turn coats is desirous to replace Najib who subsequently would put our nation in perpetual jeopardy. Business will be as usual. We will be going for roadshows again and again unendingly as long as the replacement is from leaders within the same mold and frame.
