Even Anwar Was Not Aware of Kajang Move

Posted: 03 Feb 2014 11:15 PM PST

PETALING JAYA: PKR's move to Kajang was so hush hush that even Anwar Ibrahim was not aware of the plans till the very last minute, so claims Rafizi Ramli.

The PKR strategy director Rafizi says that Anwar only spoke to former Kajang assemblyman Lee Chin Cheh an hour before he resigned.

"Lee stepped  down from his post on Saturday  (Jan 25) and Anwar only knew the plan for him to contest the seat on Monday (Jan 27)," Rafizi said to reporters at a press conference at PKR headquarters.

Rafizi says the move was masterminded by him and five other PKR leaders. He refused to say who the five are.

Rafizi said that Anwar is needed by Pakatan Rakyat (PR) in Selangor to thwart Umno's plans to unsettle the PKR-led government in the state by playing on racial and religions issues.

"The idea of Anwar coming to Selangor has been there all along. Things escalated in the last few months, the public may not feel it, but we don't under estimate how quickly the race, religions issues can escalate. All it take is just one flash point.

"Umno has done it in 1977 in Kelantan and its not even a race issue, when a few differences arose in the state government, Umno used Emergency Ordinance (EO) to suspend the state government," he said.

Rafizi said that they are preparing for the worst case scenario that Umno will use the racial and religions tension in Selangor to their advantage and step in using the EO again.

"That is why we feel that the problem in Selangor is not an administrative problem, it's about a political and that is why we need to counter it politically.

"I had been saying this all along and Khalid Ibrahim also admitted that sometimes political problems needs to be addressed by a  political maestro and we feel the best person is Anwar," he said.

Rafizi also said that the Kajang move not only will push Umno back to the drawing board, but also help cool down the racial and religious tension in the state.

"Umno has their plans, if they continue to hold demonstrations (on religions issues), it will confirm what we are saying that they are playing the racial and religious card.

"Another factor is Noh Omar the Selangor Umno liasion chief. Sparring with menteri besar Khalid Ibrahim is one thing but taking on Anwar is a differentissue.

When it comes to political issues and decisions Anwar is quicker is to react as he has been in the political scene longer than Khalid.

The Kajang state seat fell vacant following the resignation of incumbent assemblymen Lee of PKR on Jan 27 and the Election Commission has announced that it would meet on Feb 5 to discuss the by-election nomination and polling dates.

The state seat comprises 38,965 registered voters. At the last general election in May, 2013, the seat saw a voter turnout of 87.9% with 541 spoilt votes. It has 48% Malay voters, Chinese 41%, Indian 10% and others 1%.

In the 2013 general election PKR's Lee garnered 19,571 votes followed by Lee Ban Seng (Barisan Nasional-MCA) with 12,747 votes and Mohamad Ismail (Berjasa) 1,014 votes. The three independent candidates who contested the seat are Mohd Iwan Jefrey Abdul Majib (249 votes), Ong Yan Foo (85 votes) and Mohd Khalid Kassim (83 votes).

Lee won the seat with a comfortable 6, 824 vote majority.

PKR Wants Anti-graft Body to be Given Prosecution Power

Posted: 03 Feb 2014 11:00 PM PST

PKR today weighed in on the dispute between the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and the Attorney General's Chambers over the latter's decision to delay charging two former officers of a former minister.

The party's strategic director Rafizi Ramli said this clearly showed why it was important for MACC to be given the power to prosecute, to fight graft effectively.

Rafiz said it was pointless for the MACC to only have investigation powers when the decision to charge a suspect was left in the hands of the attorney general.

"The MACC may have a water-tight case but is frustrated when the discretion to prosecute is in the hands of the AG who is also the public prosecutor," he said at a news conference at the party headquarters today.

He said this in response to the MACC advisory panel, which expressed concern over speculation in the media regarding two former officers of a former minister who were not charged last week, despite an announcement earlier that the two will be charged with misappropriation of funds.

MACC consultation and corruption prevention advisory panel chairman Datuk Johan Jaaffar had said that it was concerned with this development as it could lead to public speculation or perception of outside interference.

In a statement to Bernama, the panel strongly felt that in the interest of transparency, the Attorney General's Chambers owed the public an explanation on why the two former officers were not charged.

Rafizi said Attorney General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail must come clean and give his approval that the suspects be charged without any delay.

"All eyes will be on Gani as the case has generated so much publicity and interest."

Rafizi, who is also Pandan MP, however, said the Federal Constitution needed to be amended to give MACC prosecutorial power as such authority currently rest only on the AG.

"I share the frustration of the MACC for I believe they have a good case to secure a conviction. That is why they made an announcement that two suspects will be charged but nothing happened after that."

He said the charges should be framed to allow the prosecution to reveal all evidence and for the accused to have their day in court.

Rafizi said the entire episode now gave the impression that the AG practised selective prosecution.

The Malaysian Insider reported yesterday of speculation of political intervention or selective prosecution over the delay in charging a former Umno political secretary arrested last Monday for misappropriating RM1.1 million from three foundations.

Quoting sources, The Malaysian Insider reported that the former political aide and a director of one of the foundations were linked to investigations that money for the poor had been diverted for political purposes.

In response to the article, the 11-member MACC panel further issued a statement strongly opposing any interference, political or otherwise, to MACC's efforts to fight corruption as this could erode public confidence in the commission or the AG's Chambers, as well as Putrajaya.

The MACC, in its statement last week,  had said the ex-political secretary with a datukship, and a director of one of the foundations headed by the Datuk, would be charged with criminal breach of trust involving more the RM1.1 million and another charge of alleged cheating involving RM1 million. They were to have been charged at the Kuala Lumpur's Sessions Court.

The duo were arrested by MACC and were released on RM50,000 bail each.

The three foundations which the duo was said to have cheated, were set up between the 1980s and 2011, but were not registered as welfare organisations or societies.

Instead, they were operating as companies with limited liability. MACC said both men held the positions of directors and members of the board and the funds were withdrawn from the accounts.

Anwar: What I would do as S’gor MB

Posted: 03 Feb 2014 10:27 PM PST


The first person that visitors to the PKR headquarters would meet is mustachioed security guard Balu, who usually stands at the entrance of the building in the high-end neighbourhood of Tropicana, Selangor.

Although he has a seat in the information booth, Balu cannot help but crack a joke when asked why PKR has not provided him a chair: "In this party, the biggest problem is seats."

In the latest episode, the seat in question is the post of Selangor menteri besar, with the 'Kajang Move' being seen as a way to unseat Abdul Khalid Ibrahim and replace him with PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim.

A consummate politician, Anwar who is contesting the Kajang by-election in a bid to enter the state legislative assembly, insisted on prefacing his plans with the word ‘If’.

"If I become MB," he said, raising his voice on ‘if’, "it will be until I become prime minister."

His meeting with Malaysiakini yesterday was sandwiched between a long list of media interviews, and even his cheery pink candy-stripe shirt did not mask the shadow of fatigue on his face.

Still, fatigue cannot push a seasoned player like Anwar to say what he should not – that the MB's post is merely a stepping stone and Khalid another pawn to be toppled on the longer route to the premiership.

Instead, Anwar painted a gentler picture of friendship and politics. Khalid, he said, is a good friend but Selangor needs "political clout".

"It is sad how … he has to leave. It is sad. The circumstances and the dictate of the time requires that Selangor be driven," he said, clenching his fist at the end to prove this point.

"I cannot accept Selangor being held every time to ransom. Every other week you have this problem, this attack.

"We seem to be quite helpless, either they (the BN) use state apparatus or some NGO and not much can be done … we will not allow this to happen. This requires political leadership."

‘It’s not about the money’

Enter Anwar – former finance minister and someone so deft in political manouevring that he managed to oust Ghafar Baba for the Umno deputy president's post in a heartbeat despite Ghafar’s four-decade long career in the party.

But Khalid, too, has solid credentials. Under his stewardship, Selangor reserves now stand at an astounding RM3 billion, a mountain of cash that he jealously guards.

He has refused to play politics with the funds, either by through politically-expedient projects camouflaged as state initiatives or through feeding the party.

Critics of the 'Kajang Move' allege that this is actually the main reason behind the manouevre. They say it is just a bid by PKR to break into the coffers.

Anwar shrugged, as if this is nothing new, and without missing a beat lamented how "unfair" such accusations are.

"How can I, at this stage of my political career, compromise on good governance? It is sheer insanity if I do that! … On that score, I am not going to change."

What he will change, however, is how the reserves are used. He argued that there is no point of talking about reserves with issues like poverty and public housing still a problem in the state.

"The mantel of economic management is not good reserves but good management of the economy. If you spend money, say the reserves, for public housing and free education for Universiti Selangor students, then is it wasting public money?"

Solution to Bible seizure

Anwar took the long and winding route in responding to a question as to why he chose to finally intervene in Selangor.

At the end of this, it is not hard to conclude that one of his grouses was the way the state has handled the Bible seizure issue.

While the Bible Society of Malaysia continues to await the return of the copies seized, Anwar sees this as a cut-and-dried "administrative" matter. This, he said, will be his first stop as MB.

"I would say: 'Guarantee that they won’t be distributed to Muslims, don’t send them to schools and only use them for Christians. I want it in writing.’ And then I (would) send them back," he said.

Comparing himself to Anwar, Khalid last week had said that, unlike him, Anwar can face impossible demands (he uses Hindraf’s demands as an example) but at the end of the meeting, those making the demands will be part of Anwar’s fanclub.

It is this trait that Anwar seems to be banking on to deal with rising religious tensions over the use of ‘Allah’ by non-Muslims.

If he heads the Selangor government, Anwar said he can use state resources to build the confidence of Muslims so they would not feel threatened by purported threats to their faith.

He said he has met Muslims who are "virtually fearful" of mass Christianisation and this means the issue is "beyond political".

"No, I don’t believe Islam is threatened or (that) we (would) allow it to happen. I would say you have all the resources at your disposal to strengthen the position of Islam, to use the mosque to educate, to launch your dakwah (preaching) programmes.

"But you should never allow people to be held to ransom, to instill this sort of fear among the non-Muslims. This is something that is just pathetic after half a century of independence."

If Anwar becomes the MB, would he then support a change in the state enactment to bar non-Muslims from using 'Allah’?

In answer, he related the anecdote of a Permatang Pauh Muslim scholar who had questioned him as to why non-Muslims want to change the enactment.

"I told him, Tuan Guru, if you have a non-Muslim living on Jalan Masjid, then technically he cannot use the term 'Jalan Masjid'.

"(The scholar) said, 'He can.' I said, 'But this is the law.' Then he was shocked and his immediate reaction was (that) you have to correct the law, not knowing the implications.

"So I think we have to explain. People say, no, we change the law. But I think give it time, we have to explain. Don’t under-estimate or over-estimate your influence or power without engaging with the people."

Deference to palace

Outside Khalid’s reverence for his "political animal" instincts, Anwar, too, prides himself as being in tune with sentiments on the ground.

Reading this while planning the 'Kajang Move', Anwar has known that, even if the palace cannot legally reject his nomination as MB, it would be unwise to arrogantly brush off the influence of the palace.

"I know the (state) constitution, I understand it. But as deference to the ruler, I always said that in a constitutional monarchy and parliamentary democracy, it’s not just the legal constitution.

"If you accept the institution of royalty, of kingship (sic), then there is the paraphernalia, the facade of office that you need to recognise, and that means deference."

Royal assent, protest votes and consensus within Pakatan Rakyat are hurdles he has to clear to become MB, but these are all things that Anwar and his team of advisors have accounted for.

This is why his candidacy was announced less than 24 hours of Kajang incumbent Lee Chin Cheh’s resignation from the state seat and why he is "taking the soft line" in explaining why it was done.

It also means admitting to "mistakes" – like leaving DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng in the dark over the 'Kajang Move', blaming "pressure" to get things going and miscommunication (he thought DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang would tell his son).

Simply put, he said, Kajang was chosen among several seats because its demographics reflect that of the state and doing it now means there will still be time for Anwar and Pakatan to prove their chops in Selangor before the next general election.

"I cannot go on with this (and the feud within PKR Selangor and attacks by BN) on a protracted basis. I have to decide. It was a very difficult decision, not very popular in this instance andMalaysiakini is partly responsible.

"But the decision has to be made for the larger interest and I think, at least for a start, we have caught BN off guard. Nobody anticipated it …"

Neither did the people, some of whom are incensed that PKR is forcing yet another by-election.

For now, though, Anwar almost appears proud.

"It’s not bad (our responses). It means we had read the sentiments, which to me is a positive trait in political leadership."

Anwar: There was never a Khalid-Azmin ‘deal’

Posted: 03 Feb 2014 07:34 PM PST


INTERVIEW Despite much speculation, PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim said that no condition was set by Selangor Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim when he agreed to the controversial ‘Kajang Move’.

As such, he said, it is "untrue" and "unfair to Khalid" to speculate that he will dig his heels in and not budge from the MB’s post if Selangor PKR chief Azmin Ali (right) does not vacate his Bukit Antarabangsa seat in the Selangor legislative assembly.

"If you know Khalid, (you would know) he is not that type. Not only is (the speculation) incorrect, but it is not fair to Khalid.

"Of course he expresses his views, but to put (conditions) of this and that, no," he said in an interview with Malaysiakini today.

He was responding to a report in The Star, quoting sources close to the MB, that Khalid will not budge until Azmin vacates his state seat.

Likewise, he said, there was no understanding with Azmin, who is also PKR deputy president, that he would take over as menteri besar after the 14th general election, which can be called as early as 2016.

Asked directly on this, he said: "No. Even with Khalid, I said, ‘your services are required’ while to Azmin, I said ‘we need to work together’."

"People say, ‘Anwar is a politician, he makes deals’. No. That is why I am a bit curious how this Star report came about’," he said.

He also denied that this could be a way for Khalid to "save face", if he has to step aside before completing his second term in office.

"It depends on how we deal with him. Not only now but (what happens) afterwards is important. He is not advised … to leave because he was incompetent or failed. No. He did well."

It just that, he said, Khalid’s nature means he does not have the political acumen required to stave off attacks by the BN to wrest the nation’s so-called crown jewel state.

The PKR-dubbed ‘Kajang Move’ refers to the resignation of the Kajang assemblyperson to pave the way for Anwar’s entry into the state legislative assembly.

Although Anwar insists that Khalid will remain MB “for now”, it is seen by many as a move to eventually replace Khalid as menteri besar.

‘Why talk of feudalism now?’

The bold strategy came as the internal dispute between Abdul Khalid and Azmin took an ugly and public turn, with Azmin’s termination from the Selangor State Development Corporation board of directors.

The feud also made public grouses from certain factions on alleged "feudalism", or the grip on the party by Anwar and his family, through his wife and party president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ibrahim (right), and daughter and vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar.

Sighing before answering the question, Anwar, who appeared almost saddened by the whole thing, said it just does not make sense now when Wan Azizah has already indicated she will retire.

Having held to her post uncontested in PKR’s inaugural 'one member one vote' polls in 2011, Wan Azizah is expected to stay out of the PKR elections this April.

"At the time (when Wan Azizah entered politics following Anwar’s incarceration), there was a vacuum, and everybody wanted it and she had to struggle at the time.

"Now, when everything is in order, everybody is either a menteri besar or an assemblyperson, you want to talk about feudalism – after 15 years?" he asked.

This he said, has hurt his wife who despite more than a decade in politics is not immune to its twists and turns.

"She asks ‘Why? I have been working (all these years) and then suddenly people talk about feudalism. I have indicated I am leaving, and then it becomes feudal.’

"It’s okay. We just have to be patient. As prison was not a bed of roses, this job is truly not something comforting. I am okay," he said.

Anwar: If Chong Wei contests, I’d admit defeat…

Posted: 03 Feb 2014 07:32 PM PST


Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim last night joked that if Lee Chong Wei contests in the Kajang by-election he would be defeated as he would not be able to counter the popularity of the world's top ranked singles player.

Anwar admitted that he is a big fan of Lee and always would pray for his success, in each game.

"If Lee contested I would admit defeat… (but) I would be defeated in badminton," he said.

"Everytime he is at the badminton court I will pray for his victory. I am confident that if I contest in Kajang, Lee would also pray for my success," said Anwar in his short speech last night at Taman Mesra, Kajang.
