Hijrah from Politics “Rojakness”

Tomorrow will be a new year in Islam year calender – 1430 Hijrah. A few days later, hello 2009. A new dawn, a new day, for a brand new start.

It was relaxing days for me until news about Manika­vasagam declared he wanted to quit from PKR. It is a normal daily news afterall, considering people will come and go, live and die. And I concur with Syed  Akbar Ali that “Well all political parties have their problems. They are always resigning, rejoining, breaking up, making up, burning bridges, welding them back again and so on.”

However, what caught my interest is the reactions received. His MB said that Manikavasingam is free to do so. As for me, it is agreeable. He has right to stay or to resign after being elected as MP. Only that, what will happen to his seat as MP Kapar? According to his MB (again) it is up to the supreme council. However, different reaction received from the other side inside the camp – PAS whereby Tuan Haji Abdul Hadi Awang said that Manikavasingam should contest again for the seat because he was elected for he was with PKR during the election. I personally agreed as he won on the ticket of PKR. In other words, re-election should be done in the event Manikavasingam quits as PKR member.

I’m not going to politicise this issue as I believe that later on, it will be status quo. PR will do very best for his MP not to quit the post. It is only, if someone can answer me this one chained question.

I believe that Malaysians are aware of the date given by DSAI to topple current government on 16 Spetember ago. And I believe we still remember that DSAI mentioned that 40 MP from BN would/will hop to PR side. The question is this. What will happen to these MP seats? Shouldn’t the seats be re-contested again? In other words, a massive number of 40 re-elections should be done in order to elect new 40 MPs? So, it will still be a question can PR topple current Government through politics as re-election will be done, and again, it is up to the RAKYAT TO DECIDE, not PR (although using “Rakyat” in the coalition)

We have been in rojakness state since PRU 12. It has caused Tsunami to local political scene that changes the scenario and environment. I consider it as TRAGEDY due to the fact, the true colour of our politicians being revealed. BN with it’s integrity and leadership issues, PR with policy issues. The issues can be sorted out, no doubt about it. Only that, who is faster in finding the cure to the issue. And of course, not short term cure.

Until that time, Malaysians will suffer and economy situation will be in uncertainty in addition to Global Economic Crisis. Some may not agree, but with stabil and strong politic influence, one nation can survive and prosper. If one study economics and business management, the PESTEL factor – Politics, Economy, Social, Technology, Environment and Legislative; all these play a role in determining where are we heading to.

Ondastreet wishes Selamat Menyambut Maal Hijrah and may we have a better years ahead after a rojakness of 2008.

  1. Salam ODS,

    I started to notice that our politics are similar premier league the moment PAKATAN were “buying” MPs from BN. Then Zaid was auctioned in political market, like what happened once to Patrick Berger of Liverpool, but in Zaid’s case nobody wants him, except Anwar Ibrahim.

    Did you ever notice that Anwar had never been vocal when it comes to the struggle of Palestinian people. This observation drives me to believe the jewish conspiracy theory. Do have a peep at mine, about the latest massacre on Gaza.


    ODS: Salam Mr Singh, long time have not heard from you anfd your own postings. Really taking sweet time off, do you 😀

    In regards to Zaid Ibrahim, I don’t concur he was “auctioned”. More like offering own neck to be sold in a free market. His actions has been questionable. In regards with DSAI, hard to say. Maybe due to that rumour saying that he (or PKR) donated a sum of money for US Presidency campaign. I say rumour because I haven’t being able to see the piece of atricle/list yet. So, if he had supported US, which, is the supporter of Israel, I have no doubt if DSAI would dare to say anything in Palesatinian issue.

    I just dropped by in your page and certainly will give my input on it. 🙂

    ODS: Salam Pemuda IKS,

    I consider myself not as writing oftenly. I am just trying to express my thoughts and want to see positive changes in the society. We have gained independance for more than 50 years, yet some has forgetten our history in moving forward and some being ignorant in trying to achieve personal/small group success, rather than mutual benefit.

    Thank you for visiting. 🙂

  3. Salam perjuangan,

    Thanks for your respond.

    2009 is a new hope for UMNO. As we speak, the PR coalition is shattering piece by piece. It’ s a good thing that BN lost in the last election. From this, the Malays have realized their status in this multi-racial community.

    Pemuda IKS hopes that the upcoming power transition may happen with no complications. ODS, what are your hopes for UMNO?

    ODS: PR shattering is one thing, but I don’t really rely on it as I see the importance for BN and UMNO to improve inside out.

    Malays do realize that there is something going on within PR, but that doesn’t mean votes will easily be BN’s. Remember when some people say, what’s the purpose of topple secular government but building up another one? No point if BN and UMNO does not improve but gaining through issues within PR.

    PR is no different from BN, except PR have policy and intergration issues. BN and UMNO however, is facing problems inside out with its leaders. Between both, I’d say, policy issues can be resolved by mutual agreement with logical and positive awareness, but changing personalities or taubat nasuha BN leaders is much harder. Like the old saying – Old habits die harder. However, people can change. Only time will show. It is just whether BN and UMNO leaders aware and change before it is too late.

    My hope? Positive changes within UMNO before it is too late.
