Penang N11: Dihujung perjalanan (translation provided : The end of a journey)

Latest




The rest of the original posting below :-

Sekiranya tiada aral melintang, PAS akan bertakbir lagi pada 25hb Ogos meraikan kemenangan mereka di Permatang Pasir. Majoriti? Sahabat maya menganggarkan 1969 tetapi saya merasakan dengan keadaan sekarang, majoritinya sekitar 3,000.

Barring unexpected changes, PAS will once again "Takbir" this 25th August 2009 to celebrate their victory in Permatang Pasir. Majority? A cyber friend estimated 1969 but with the prevailing condition, a majority within 3,000 is not impossible.

  1. Setiap yang bermula ada akhirnya. Sama juga dengan perjalanan. Dihujung perjalanan ada destinasinya. Dan perjalanan PRK Permatang Pasir sudah tiba kepenghujungnya.
  2. Walaupun pada mulanya dianggarkan 3 percalunan akan diterima tetapi yang pasti 2 calun akan berentap pada 25hb Ogos 2009.
  3. Lain dari yang lain, Permatang Pasir membuktikan BN bukan lagi satu gergasi politik yang mempunyai banyak pilihan calun. Kali ini BN telah membuktikan kegagalan mereka ketika proses saringan dalaman yang menentukan calun BN.
  4. Dari mula lagi BN berada didalam keadaan tertekan dan defensif akibat kecuaian mereka memilih calun. Sehingga kini, calun BN merupakan calun yang bermasaalah kerana :-

    • keputusan Majlis Peguam mengeluarkan beliau dari senarai peguam atas kesalahan salahlaku;
    • menuding jari kepada bekas rakankongsi, yang juga merupakan rakan seuniversiti beliau sebagai orang yang bertanggungjawab atas kesalahan salahlaku yang mana tindakan telah diambil oleh Majlis Peguam;
    • bekas rakankongsi beliau telah menolak tuduhan calun dan telah mengemukakan fakta yang menunjukkan bahwa calun BN adalah orang yang bertanggungjawab terhadap kesalahan tingkahlaku itu;
    • menyalahgunakan wang yang diamanahkan oleh pelanggan dengan membuat pinjaman kepada teman beliau untuk menyelesaikan masalah teman sehingga tidak dapat memulangkan kembali wang amanah tersebut sehingga beberapa tahun;
    • tidak mengaku mempunyai isteri kedua walhal perkara ini telah disahkan oleh bapa mertua beliau sendiri;
    • telah secara tidak sedar menjatuhkan maruah dan martabat graduan UIAM dengan tingkahlaku beliau;

  5. Kesilapan pemilihan calun ini harus dipikul oleh Muhyiddein dan Zahid Hamidi. Persoalannya - adakah mereka mengetahui bahwa calun BN mempunyai masalaah demikian? Sekiranya ya, bilakah mereka mengetahuinya? Seandainya mereka mengetahui masaalah tersebut sebelum hari penamaan calun, maka BN telah memperbodohkan pengundi dengan meletakkan calun tersebut.
  6. Zahid Hamidi yang pernah menjawat jawatan menteri yang bertanggungjawab terhadap agama Islam harus peka dengan ini. Beliau sebagai ketua perhubungan negeri Pulau Pinang semestinya menghidu masaalah calun tersebut. Apatah lagi dengan kedudukan beliau sebagai Menteri Pertahanan, beliau mempunyai bantuan kepakaran untuk menyelidik latarbelakang calun.
  7. BN telah hilang punca dan ini memberi laluan agak mudah bagi PAS mempertahankan Permatang Pasir. Mungkin PAS tidak akan mendapat majoriti sebagaimana yang mereka dapati dalam tahun 2008 tetapi kemenangan masih kemenangan walaupun dengan majoriti yang merosot.
  8. Walaupun BN cuba bermain dengan angka apabila memberi ganbaran seolah-olah calun PAS juga menyeleweng wang tetapi BN gagal untuk membawa bukti selain dari menurunkan jumlah wang yang dikatakan diseleweng dari RM 60K kepada RM 6K.
  9. Gagal dalam cubaan itu, BN telah memainkan sentimen agama dan bangsa tetapi umpan BN masih belum menjadi. Mungkin bulan Ramadan membawa rahmat kepada PAS. Siapa tahu?
  10. Perlu diingat sekiranya PAS berjaya menaikkan majoriti, ini memberi satu lagi tamparan hebat kepada BN terutamanya kepada Najib yang sedang mempromosikan konsep "1Malaysia".
  11. BN mungkin boleh berlapang dada apabila Mohd Radzhi bertindak keluar dari PKR semalam. Ini mungkin memberi ruang bagi BN memasukkan jarum memacing undi. Tetapi dalam masa yang sama, lawan BN di Permatang Pasir ialah PAS dan bukannya PKR.
  12. Dalam masa yang sama, BN juga mempunyai masaalahnya yang tersendiri apabila Tiong mendakwa menyumbang sebanyak RM 10J kepada Ong TK untuk dana politik MCA.
  13. Sekiranya tiada aral melintang, PAS akan bertakbir lagi pada 25hb Ogos meraikan kemenangan mereka di Permatang Pasir. Majoriti? Sahabat maya menganggarkan 1969 tetapi saya merasakan dengan keadaan sekarang, majoritinya sekitar 3,000.
  14. Apapun, marilah sama-sama berdoa agar PRK Permatang Pasir berjalan lancar tanpa gangguan dan kekecohan. Hari baik, bulan baik adalah lebih baik bagi penyokong kedua-dua belah pihak memperbanyakkan zikir dari menghambur kata-kata kesat.

Hingga ketemu lagi...selamat malam M'sia...dimana jua anda berada...

Translation
  1. Every beginning has its end. The same with journeys. At the end of each journey is its destination. And for Permatang Pasir by-election, its journey is coming to an end.
  2. Although initially it is expected that 3 nomination papers will be filed but it seems that 2 candidates will go on one to one this 25th August 2009.
  3. The difference this time is Permatang Pasir proved that BN is no longer a political giant with many potential candidates. This time BN exposed their failure to internally screen potential candidates.
  4. From the onset of the campaign period, BN is in defensive and pressured by its own failure in choosing a candidate. To this day, BN's candidate is becoming a problematic candidate due to :-

    • the Bar council decision to strike off his name for his misconduct offenses;
    • pointed that it is his ex-partner who happens to be his univeristy mate as the person responsible for the misconduct which leads the candidate being taken action by the Bar council;
    • his ex-partner has surfaced to refute the candidate's accusations and has presented his side of the story pointing that the candidate is the one who is responsible for the problem;
    • misuse a client's funds by giving loan to his friend to solve his problems but the friend fail to repay the money leading to the candidate failing to refund the client's money for several years;
    • deny having a second wife although this has been admitted by his in laws;
    • unconsciously affect the morals and the good name of UIA graduates with his actions;

  5. The candidate selection fiasco is the joint fault of both Muhyiddein and Zahid Hamidi. The question - do they realise that the BN candidate has the problem? If yes, when did they come to know about it? If they know it before the nomination day, then it is obvious that BN is making fools out of the voters by nominating him as the candidate.
  6. Zahid Hamidi who used to be the minister in charge of Islamic affairs should be sensitive to this. As Penang UMNO liason chief, he must be able to sniff the problem. What more in his capacity as the Defense minister, he has the intelligence support to carry out a thorough background check on the candidate.
  7. BN has lost track and giving an easy passage for PAS to defend Permatang Pasir. Maybe PAS will not get its 2008 majority but a win is still a win even with reduced majority.
  8. Although BN is trying to play with numbers by giving hints that PAS candidate is also invlved in fund misappropriation but BN failed to provide the proof and on top of that reduce the numbers from RM 60 K to RM 6K.
  9. failing in that area, BN is resorting to religous and race sentiments but BN's stragey is not working. Maybe the month of Ramadan is bringing blessings to PAS. Who knows?
  10. It should be noted that if PAS managed to increase its majority, this will be a major setback to BN especially to Najib who is promoting his "1Malaysia" concept.
  11. BN may be relieved when Mohd Radzhi left PKR yesterday. This may give some space for BN to win some votes. But at the same time, it must be made clear that BN's opponent in Permatang Pasir is PAS and not PKR.
  12. At the same time, BN has its own internal problem when Tiong claimed to donate RM 10M to Ong TK for MCA's political funds.
  13. Barring unexpected changes, PAS will once again "Takbir" this 25th August 2009 to celebrate their victory in Permatang Pasir. Majority? A cyber friend estimated 1969 but with the prevailing condition, a majority within 3,000 is not impossible.
  14. Whatever it is, let us all pray that Permatang Pasir by-election will proceed smoothly without disturbance or violence. In this goodmonth of Ramadan al Mubarak, it is better for supporters from both camps to chants praise to the al-Mighty than resorting to abusive words...

Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...

BN will definitely win......more votes than before for this by-election and I concur that PAS will win by over 3 votes lah, ha ha ha.

nightcaller said...

ahoo

I am not looking at 3 votes although Mahfodz make it clwear that PAS is happy to win by just 1 vote :)

I am looking at PAS majority in the region of 3000. That will send shivers to BN if they ever think of buying over more frogs during this rainy season...

On top of that, I did not see Rohaizat giving plausible explanation on the law firm's misconduct and misuse the client's funds plus he did not come out clean on the 2nd wife issue.

Nightcaller,
Sekali lagi saya mengucap tahniah kepada PAS dan Salleh Man. Walau apa jua pun, UBN nak kata bahawa majoriti sudah merosot, Hakikatnya peratus pengundi2 yang mengundi sudan merost 10%. Inilah tamparan hebat bagi UMNO
Sekarang Pakatan Rakyat sedang melalui process metamorphisation (Oops, I hope that I got it right). Nak jadi kupu2, ulat itu kennalah balut sebelum menjadi kupu2 yang cantik molek
PAP pun macam itu jugak. Anwar sepatutnya belajar dari LKY macam mana LKY menangani masalah dalaman yang begitu ketara sejak penubuhan PAP.

Saudara- Saudari sekalian,

Marilah kita majulah ke depan dengan semangat baru yang berkobar2. Menujukan kesejahteraan & kebahagiaan seluruh Malaysia

Walaupun, ini merupakan Pledge bagi negara jiran. Ianyanya ditulis oleh Rajaratnam, anak Negeri Sembilan jati macam Hisham Rais. Rajaratnam menulis ini bagi Malaysia jugak

We, the citizens of Malaysia (Kenna tukar kerana ini malaysia)

pledge ourselves as one united people,
regardless of race, language or religion,
to build a democratic society,
based on justice and equality,
so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and
progress for our nation.

Sekian

Does that mean that I have to be extra careful when writing in Bahasa? :)

Yes, PAS won with good majority beyond my expectation. My friend in Permatang Pasir, who happens to be an Engineer, took a day off to volunteer as PAS's worker in the polling centre (and this is not the first time he did that). It shows that PAS has transform from a theologist party to a mixture of professionals and theologists group, which shows that is is a progressive and pragmatic party.

And looking from the by-election analysis carried out in Astro awani, BN (UMNO) strategists and other panelists are still at loss on what hit BN (UMNO).

The worst thing is when the UMNO youth rep claimed taht the voters will still vote PAS even if the candidate is a rock! That shows that BN did not do their homework. Actually the PAS candidate is the state commissioner which is equivalent to UMNO state liason chief (which in BN ruled states is the MB/CM). It shows how shallow UMNO youth thinking!

Of course there are other factors that contribute to PAS win (and UMNO defeat) which initially I thought of penning down. However, looking at their arrogance, why should I contribute my ideas to list down the mistakes that BN did during the by-election? They think that with their think tank, they had covered every angles...so be it. I believed in a healthy 2 (or multi) party system for good check and balance. But BN choose to ignore the ground message...well it is up to them. Their losses is PR's gains...

I was not wrong in saying that bn will win,..... more votes but the final battle is still won by PAS !

UMNO maybe scratching "balls" now to find out what actually went wrong when they have all the campaign materials, personnel, finances, welfare assistance, army as volunteers for the village folks etc.

Maybe they think that the chinese betrayed them again since ong takut was not even there. Or even the indians had given all their votes to Pas or they were sabotage by their other aspiring candidates ???

Well, the simple and clear answer is just that peoples out there are piss off with the arrogance of politicians non accountability.

Simply put, BN tried to sell a defective product and the buyers (voters) are not impressed.

BN has to go back to the drawing boards and next time have better R & D on their product b4 launching them.

Words in the street is BN products are defective lots and many are on their way to the scrapyard :) and Malaysians are no longer into re-cycled products. So for BN models Hisham, Rais and the rest - they will be discontinued in the coming GE 13.
