In Response To PAS Youth in Wangsa Maju
In 1973 PAS joined BN and fought the 1974 General Elections under the BN ticket, many PAS MPs, including Tok Guru YAB Datuk Hj Nik Aziz Nik Mat were elected. In 1977 PAS resigned from BN but none of the PAS MPs resigned so that by-elections can be held. At that time there was no prohibition under the law that when a MP resigned he or she could not stand as a candidate again in the by-election. PAS should have shown their leadership then by resigning as MPs and not calling others to do so.
PAS Youth in Wangsa Maju conveniently did not touch on my statement of yesterday over the stand taken by Tok Guru. Is it PAS’s policy to “Please don’t follow what PAS leaders did or do but follow what they preached or preach?” I don’t believe that this is the policy of PAS otherwise it will be most shameful to have such a policy when PAS always pride itself of being very Islamic, righteous and democratic. I believe that PAS will not condone double standard, corruption or corrupt practices and “sweeping under the carpet” allegations of corruption or corrupt practices whether in the PR or BN administration. Perhaps PAS Youth in Wangsa Maju do not share such policies and aspirations as PAS’s main body. Maybe PAS Youth in Wangsa Maju was misguided and led by the nose by the equally misguided.
Press Release by Wee Choo Keong, MP for Wangsa Maju, on 16 May 2010.
In reply to Tok Guru’s press statement yesterday, first and foremost it must be noted that at the time of the 2008 General Elections (GE) I was invited by YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to help PKR and to stand as a candidate in the said GE for he knew that I was preparing to take part in the said GE under MDP. For the sake of opposition unity at the material time, I contested under the PKR flag and I was not a member of PKR. After much persuasion by YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim I joined PKR in April/May 2009.
Yesterday Tok Guru said as follows:
“Akil baligh ini bukan sahaja semestinya dari segi umur seseorang tapi dalam politik pun ada akil baligh juga. Orang yang lompat parti dan masuk parti politik lain adalah mereka yang tidak akil baligh dalam politik.”
Chronology of Events
I am shocked to learn in the Star this morning that Puchong MP, YB Gobind Singh Deo, did meet the complainant over the sand mining scandal as early as February 2010 and he took up the matter with the state exco member YB Ronnie Liew, who holds the local council portfolio. Incidentally, YB Ronnie Liew is also the “Adun Angkat” for Dengkil, the sand mining town in Selangor. YB Ronnie Liew was appointed as “Adun Angkat” for Dengkil because BN won the Dengkil state seat in 2008 and YB Ronnie Liew was given the responsibility to look after the area. Continue reading
YB Manikavasagam, MP for Kapar, had been calling for an investigation into the sand mining scandal involving the officials in Kuala Semesta Sdn Bhd, which is wholly owned by Menteri Besar Incorporated, and Pakatan Rakyat high ranking elected representatives in Selangor but it fell on deaf ears for some time. In fact, this scandal had been and continue to be an open secret amongst the PR MPs and State Assemblymen for some time, too. The sand mining activities had been taking place in the Dengkil area.
