Kenapa Adun perlu letak jawatan?

Jika ketua Pemuda Gerakan mahu Adun dan ahli Parlimen meletak jawatan sebagai pilihan sama ada sebab atau tiada sebab, dihukum adalah idealisma budak-budak muda yang biasanya dipengaruhi emosi.

Ada sebab tertentu mengapa orang muda yang berpolitik boleh mencadangkan dikenakan denda hingga RM100,000 atau lebih. Ada politiknya maka dia membuat cadangan demikian.

Tetapi kalau seorang profesor yang memimpin ramai pelajar membuat cadangan sedemikian, maka kita boleh bertanya, macam mana dia boleh diangkat jadi profesor.

Biasanya orang politik daripada parti yang berbeza suka mencabar lawannya seperti wakil rakyat meletak jawatan dan bertanding semula bagi menguji pengaruh masing-masing.

Seorang wakil rakyat dicabar meletak jawatan disebabkan dia tidak buat kerja, atau dia membuat kenyataan bodoh yang tidak melayakkannya jadi wakil rakyat.

Apabila wakil rakyat itu menyahut cabaran, maka ini memberi peluang kepada yang mencabar untuk bertanding. Tidak perlu dia menunggu tamat tempoh untuk mencabarnya.

Orang sepintar Lee Kuan Yew itu sendiri semasa sebelum berkuasa dan menjadi pembangkang juga mencabar musuh politiknya baik seorang mahu pun semuanya meletak jawatan bagi menguji populariti masing-masing.

Orang mencabar biasanya ia ada harapan menang jika diadakan pilihan raya kecil. Dan bagi yang berani menyakut cabaran pula merasa dia mudah mengalahkan si pencabar bila piihan raya diadakan semula.

Tetapi mengapa sekarang ada parti politik tidak suka Adun atau ahli Parlimen parti lawannya meletak jawatan seperti di Kajang itu? Adakah PRK akan memakan belanja besar dan membazirkan duit rakyat bagi mengadakannya?

Mengatakan belanja besar itu dalih saja. Sebenarnya cakap seperti itu ialah kerana ia tidak yakin ada harapan memenangi PRK itu. MCA tiada harapan menang di Kajang, apa lagilah Gerakan. Bila ada PRK mereka terpaksa bertanding. Penat kerja, banyak belanja habis, keputusannya kalah.

Itulah logiknya maka mereka menganjurkan supaya didenda wakil rakyat yang memilih meletak jawatan secara sukarela. Orang mencadangkan supaya didenda wakil rakyat seperti itu adalah kumpulan seperti musang yang mengatakan anggur masam setelah tidak dapat mencapainya.

Mungkin meletak jawatan seperti dikatakan memperolok demokrasi dan kebebasan berpolitik.

Tetapi jika Adun merasakan dia tidak dapat menjalankan tugas dengan baik disebabkan kelemahannya, maka meletak jawatan adalah baik supaya gantinya dapat memberi khidmat yang lebih baik.

Jika didapati ada wakil rakyat yang tidak berguna, kerja tidak dibuat, meletak jawatan tidak mahu, ia adalah lebih buruk daripada yang meletak jawatan.

Yang penting ialah rakyat dan kawasan mendapat khidmat baik daripada wakil rakyat. Kalau yang tidak berguna itu tidak meletakkan jawatan kerana tidak mahu didenda RM100,000, yang rugi ialah rakyat dan kawasan kerana wakil rakyat malas dan poteng.

DAP menunggu saja presiden MCA meletak jawatan di Parlimen Bentong kerana DAP percaya Tiong Lai boleh dikalahkan dalam PRK.

Tiong Lai tidak akan letak jawatan bukan kerana PRK berbelanja besar tetapi dia belum tentu menang.

Tentang profesor yang berfikir seperti budak-budak itu, tidak dapat hendak dibayangkan jenis pelajar yang dilahirkannya. Univeriti bukan sekadar mahukan pelajarnya dinamik, tetapi perlukan profesor dinamik bagi melahirkan graduan dinamik.

Hukum yang dicadangkan itu, bukan untuk melahirkan Adun dan ahli Parlimen yang dinamik dan berani, tetapi ia akan melonggokkan wakil rakyat yang pasif.

Drop probe on Anwar, Bersih tells cops

The coalition for clean and fair election Bersih has called on the police to drop its investigation against PKR’s would be Kajang by-election candidate under the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.

In a statement, Bersih said that the constitutionality of the Act is still pending in court.

“Bersih is currently challenging the constitutionality of the Act in its counterclaim in the suit concerning the Bersih 3 rally, in which the police are demanding a compensation of RM112,000 from us for damage of police vehicles.

“Bersih will stand by Anwar Ibrahim or any candidate against any unconstitutional violation of their right to peaceful assembly,” it said in a statement.

It added that “selective” use of the Act against a by-election candidate undermines the fairness of the polls.

Berita Harian yesterday reported that police have opened investigation papers under the Act to probe Anwar over a campaign rally he hosted in Kajang.

This followed Election Commission chief Abdul Aziz Yusof’s remark that the EC cannot act as the campaign period will only commence on March 11.

In response, Anwar had said that although BN has yet to name a candidate, BN leaders have been actively campaigning for the coalition through statements in the media.

‘No such thing as voters overly-informed’

On this matter, Bersih said that although the campaign has not officially begun “there is no such thing as voters being overly informed”.

“Unofficial campaign before nomination cannot do voters any harm as they get more time to consider their option and the consequences of their choice,” it said.

However, it said the EC is “duty-bound” to act on any electoral misconduct even those outside the official campaign period.

“The EC is duty-bound to ensure the Kajang by-election, as any other election, to be free of bribery, treating, intimidation, outright vote-buying, hate speech against any social groups (be it ethnic, religious, linguistic, gender or lifestyle), smear campaigns, one-sided media reporting and violence,” it said.

It also clarified a report by The Malaysian Insider where Bersih was reported to have stated that both BN and PKR have contravened election rules by campaigning before March 11.

Chairperson Maria Chin Abdullah clarified that what she had said was that the EC was not being even-handed by singling out Anwar over the issue of early campaigning.

“Bersih calls upon all media to uphold the highest standard of professionalism in their reporting to ensure fairness to both the reported parties and the public,” it said.

BFM barred from airing Anwar interview

Business radio station BFM has been barred from broadcasting its interview with PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim on the Kajang by-election.

The interview was initially slated to be aired on the station’s Evening Edition, which is a drive-time programme.

It is understood that the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) had ordered the station to can the interview.

However, it is still available for download on the station’s website.

It is normal practice for radio stations to submit a list of guests and topics for the MCMC’s reference.

It is also noted that this is not the first time that BFM has been barred by the MCMC from airing an interview.

Among other instances, the MCMC had ordered BFM not to air its interview with Irshad Manji, a Canadian book author who has drawn opposition from conservative Muslim groups due to her liberal stand on Islam.

BFM is a Klang Valley-based radio station that can be received in parts of Negri Sembilan and Malacca.

The station has built a reputation for its more liberal and bold approach towards business and current affairs reporting, which sets it apart from Malaysia’s ‘big three’ private radio groups – Media Prima Radio Networks, Star Publications (M) Bhd and AMP Radio Networks.

It was founded by Malek Ali and last year, 23 percent of its stakes were reported to have been acquired by The Edge Communications Sdn Bhd.
