Ignorance, Stupid or Playing Dirty ?

Hantu Laut,

That was a shock to me.The Election Commission(EC) announced no by-election for the two vacant state seats in Perak.Where did they get the idea they are empowered to make such decision? It would be interesting to find out from the EC which section of the Election Ordinance allows them to act accordingly.

Not only the EC have to be taken to task, the Perak state assembly Speaker V Sivakumar has shown extreme bias and partiality by accepting the letters of resignation despite the fact that the two assemblymen had written to him denying the validity of the letters.Upon receipt of such letters the Speaker should have called the 2 assemblymen concerned to see him to get clarification.Even if the letters were signed by them they have the right to retract the letters.

If Pakatan supporters think they are going to get a better government than they would be disappointed,, the actions of the speaker and the rest of the Pakatan gang are no better than what the BN is practising.

'Two wrongs don't make a right' the EC has also acted appallingly by going beyond its power. The EC is a servant not the master.Its role is to carry out what was decided by 'State Assembly' in the case of state assemblymen and 'Parliament' in the case of MPs.

What would happen if the Agong upon the advice of the PM agreed to dissolve parliament tomorrow and call for fresh elections can the EC ruled otherwise and say no we don't agree ?

Perak gave EC 48-hour ultimatum, what choice have they got, what can they do, get the artillery and go to war with the EC ?

The only choice is the court and that can move at snail pace.

Is Pakatan thinking of the big D....? Otherwise why the ultimatum?

It looks more like a game of 'tit for tat'.A wrong trying to right the other wrong.Both sides playing dirty politics.

HL,

For those who had their doubths that the EC / SPR is biased towards the BN (Read: UMNO), this is CLEAR proof!
It's quite simple why these two PR men are "Kataking". If they katak over to UMNO, easy, the Corruption Charges will "quietly" go away & they will be free, not to mention a few Million RM in their pockets "Tax Free"! Man instead of working my butt out all these years in the Oil & Gas Industry, I should have gone into Politics!
Yes, Politics (especially in Malaysia) is a dirty business. My opinion is that we choose the "Lesser Evil" (for now) & that is the PR! We all know the BN is corrupted to the core!
In the mean time, no one in the "Corridors of Power" seem to be bothered about the worsening Economy.
I must admit that I agree with TDM, "Pak Lah is to blame"! He should have put a stop to all this but he did not & now we see the results (& in the mean time he's retiring & passing it on to someone who is even worse!).
Allah save us!

HHuntar.
The BN is used to this kind of politics.Politic is dirty and dirtier in some place.I don't think they care or ashamed of what they are doing, as long as they stay in power.

SM,

They all are busy jockeying for positions in the coming UMNO elections, where got time to care about the economy.

Yes, politics will take you on the road to instant wealth....no toil,no sweat and no tears needed.Need only to know how to kiss arses of those in power.
