Mr JBJ took famiLEE LEEgime to court for By-Election





A class action lawsuit is filed by Mr. JBJ of Reform Party taking famiLEE LEEgime to court for refusing to hold By-Election in Jurong GRC's Bukit Batok seat from which MP Ong died. Reform Party went to Bukit Batok to collect signatures and the responds was so great it was hard to believe - all these signatures were collected spending not exceeding 1 and half hours from only not more than 3 block of HDB flats in Bukit Batok. No further efforts were necessary. In the view of this, the people's desire to have By-Election is very strong, and I can assure any one that thousand signatures can be collected if more home visits were done. I can further assure that there will be NO WALK-OVER ABSOLUTELY. :-)

Abudllah use ISA on blogger again today, famiLEE LEEgime gave Gopalan Nair 3 months

Who is more desperate? famiLEE LEEgime or Malaysian BN ?

Both are busing so called laws to cover they own lame ass. Both are corrupted selfish greedy cowards. Both are furiously attacked by bloggers. Both are not feared by bloggers. Both failed to stop the bloggers' attacks! Both are pathetically and hopelessly desperate!


Ex-Worker's Party Candidate who stood in Bukit Merah in 1991, currently American citizen, ex-Singaporean blogger Mr. Gopalan Nair on the right side of this picture, outside LEEgime's court after he was sentenced to 3 months imprisonment.

These are the 2 LEEgime prosecutors that asked for NOT LESS THAN 3 MONTHS IMPRISONMENT for Gopalan Nair. On the left side is Mrs. Tan.

In my personal opinion Mr. Gopalan Nair fight this battle bravely, and righteously. He contributed much more than most average Singaporeans who are to coward to lift a finger for all the injustices and wrongs of famiLEE LEEgime. As an ex-Singaporean citizen and candidate he have no obligation to fight against Singapore's injustice, however he did so much for Singapore. By this and what he had done so far, Mr. Gopalan Nair had already earned an honorable citizenship of Singapore as an American citizen. I am proud of Mr. Gopalan Nair.

I am calling for all righteous Singaporeans and international blogger community to support Mr. Gopalan Nair and stand up against the coward famiLEE LEEgime which abused unfair power against blogger such as Mr. Gopalan Nair. Just as we support Malaysian bloggers such as Raja Petra and Syed Azidi, we have to stand by Mr. Gopalan Nair.



Bloggers are not alone in this globalized Cyberspace. The draconian coward regimes are facing entire world of bloggers, and we out-number them always. :-)

Anwar to Abdullah : I have slight majority now, handover peacefully!

Press statement of Mr. Anwar:

Sept 16 press statement in full
Sep 16, 08 3:40pm
The following is the statement given by Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim at a 2pm press conference at the PKR headquarters in Petaling Jaya today.
MCPX



Today, Malaysians celebrate Malaysia Day - the day our country became whole and our people become united. This day has a new meaning. After years of struggle, after fighting against a system that is corrupt and unjust - we affirm that victory is finally at hand. Our vision of rebuilding this country and bringing its people together, as the founding fathers envisioned, is within reach.

The economy is in turmoil with runaway inflation and joblessness creating widespread discontent. Racial tensions have been rising, exacerbated by the propaganda spread in the government owned mainstream media. The administration has offered no vision to steer the nation out of this quagmire and there is manifest erosion in confidence in the current government.

We in Pakatan Rakyat believe we can save Malaysia from economic ruin and the dangerous politics of racism. We will do so prudently, legally and in doing so we will not jeopardise the security and stability of the country and the safety of its people.

We have received firm commitments from members of parliament in excess of the number required to form a new government, and our government will reflect the diverse make-up of Malaysian society.

It has been our concern to ensure a peaceful transition of power. We do not wish to see a repeat of what transpired in the Selangor and Perak state governments, where following the victory of Pakatan Rakyat on March 8, documents were shredded and removed by the outgoing administration.

We furthermore advise radical elements within BN against the abuse of state power to unlawfully harass and detain our supporters.The immediate investigation by the ACA (Anti-Corruption Agency) of Yong Teck Lee after the announcement by SAPP (Sabah Progressive Party) of its intention to move a motion of no-confidence against Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is another example of the tactics we reject.
The use of the ISA, as has happened to MP Teresa Kok, would be an unlawful impediment to the transition process.

In light these serious concerns, yesterday leaders of Pakatan Rakyat sent a letter to the prime minister at 2.30pm requesting a meeting to discuss the future course of the nation's leadership and to seek his assurance on the following important matters:
1) That the BN shall not hinder or prevent their BN MPs from acting in accordance with their conscience, constitutional rights and independent judgment;
2) That the BN government shall not invoke the Internal Security Act to detain any of the MPs who will join Pakatan Rakyat, or any of the present 82 Pakatan Rakyat MPs;
3) That the BN government shall not invoke emergency or police powers, or suspend the constitution, or dissolve parliament in response to our intention to form a new government;
4) That the Barisan Nasional government shall not impose roadblocks and impede the MPs from gaining access to the House of Parliament and the institutions of government.
We believe the prime minister will share Pakatan Rakyat's concerns for the welfare of the people and security of the nation. We are confident he will ensure the BN will act constitutionally and democratically to ensure that the transition will be peaceful, and there will be no actions taken to sabotage the wishes of the people or play on racial tensions in the country.

We appeal to all quarters in Malaysian society to understand our intentions are for the betterment of Malaysian society. The mainstream media, in particular, should accept the reality of these historic times and report fairly, accurately and without bias. The irresponsible tact that is used by the media to obfuscate issues, attack opposition supporters and instigate racial tensions must end immediately.

Following our meeting with the prime minister, we intend to proceed within the framework established by the federal constitution in the formation of a new government, with the assent of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Anwar: We've more than 31 defectors

Abdul Hakim Bujang | Sep 16, 08 2:40pm

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim said today he had signed up more than 31 defectors needed to form a new government and called on Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi not to implement emergency rule to thwart a takeover.

MCPX

"We have a slight majority, it is in excess of 31," he told a packed press conference held at 2pm in the PKR headquarters in Petaling Jaya.Anwar, however, did not reveal the names of the lawmakers.

His Pakatan Rakyat alliance - made up of the PKR, DAP and PAS - now holds 81 out of the 222 seats in Parliament. Its rival, the Barisan Nasional coalition led by Abdullah's Umno party, currently has the majority.

To overthrow the Barisan, Pakatan would need another 31 members of parliament to join its camp for it to hit the minimum simple majority required of 112 seats.

The 61-year old Anwar, who has been in talks with a number of disgruntled backbenchers, also said he wants Abdullah's assurance the power transition could proceed smoothly.

Peaceful transition

Abdullah had last week shocked the nation by arresting three civilians under the country's draconian Internal Security Act, which allows for police detention without trial.

The move, which sparked widespread condemnation, was seen as a means to shore up his political standing within his Umno party and also as a warning to Anwar's Pakatan.
“We want a peaceful transition. We hope that Barisan (Nasional) will not put up emergency rule to stop MPs from going to Parliament or arrest (government) MPs or stop them from joining Pakatan Rakyat,” he said.

"That's why we have taken a very soft, conciliatory option. I am not making excuses. We have the numbers. We can and are prepared to move. If after a few days there is no response, Pakatan leaders will meet and see what is the next course of action."

The Pakatan had yesterday sent a letter to Abdullah, requesting for a meeting.
"We give the PM time to consult and act responsibly as head of the country to heed the wishes of the people," Anwar said. "I believe he will meet and we will have to wait today or tomorrow. He is a politician under siege, so you can forgive him for sounding desperate."

"We are looking at a matter of days (for a change in government)," he added.

According to Malaysian law, the king has the right to accept and formalise any new government that can show proof of sufficient mandate in Parliament. This means that Anwar can approach the monarch with proof that he has the support of enough MPs to be the new leader.

Alternatively, the king could order fresh general elections, provided the prime minister - either outgoing or incoming - recommends it.

Anwar urges supporters to have faith
Sep 15, 08 10:32pm

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim told a 25,000-strong rally tonight in Kelana Jaya stadium that he had the numbers to form a new government tomorrow.
"Tonight on the eve of Malaysia Day, we are ready to form the government tomorrow," he said to loud cheers from the jubilant crowd.


He said that he had the required number of parliamentarians to form the government.


According to him, Pakatan Rakyat has submitted a letter to Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi today seeking a meeting for a smooth transition of power.


"Tomorrow is the day we are ready to form government. But the best time, I tell you, is when we meet the prime minister.


"A peaceful transition is paramount," he added.



He was talking to the massive crowd which had gathered at the Kelana Jaya stadium in Petaling Jaya to celebrate Pakatan's 'Hari Malaysia' celebration.

Anwar, who began his speech at 10.15pm, emphasised the importance of Sabah and Sarawak to Malaysia.

He also criticised the ruling Barisan Nasional for pursuing a divide-and-rule agenda at the expense of the two east Malaysian states.

"This is the first time ever a celebration of this scale is being held to recognise that we are one - that Sabah and Sarawak are part of Malaysia," Anwar told the crowd.


He added that he would declare Sept 16 a national holiday when he takes over the government.



Anwar also slammed the Abdullah-led government of practising racial politics, which he said led to the ISA arrests of three people.

He urged the majority Malays not to be swayed by BN policies.

"The Ketuanan Melayu (Malay supremacy) benefitted only the rich and elite Malays, not you," he said.

Most of those in the crowd are there in the belief that PKR leader Anwar would make an important announcement tonight on the formation of a new government, which Anwar has repeatedly claimed he would do by tomorrow.


Crowd expectation

Earlier Anwar entered the venue at 9.40pm to wild chants of ‘Reformasi!' and ‘Merdeka'.

Many Pakatan leaders were already at the venue, most of them also believing that Anwar would make an important announcement at the rally.

Penang Chief Minister and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, when asked if there would be a surprise announcement, merely said: "Wait for Anwar".

Guan Eng and DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang had earlier entered the stadium to loud cheers.

Many people on the ground whom Malaysiakini spoke to also expressed confidence of an impending change.

"He may reveal the first batch of defectors and maybe on how they will approach the king.

"I think they will wrap it up and form a new government by the end of this month," said retiree G Maniam.

‘I am surprised at how fast things are changing," said another Pakatan supporter at the stadium, Anthony Tong.

The 52-year-old accountant from Cheras said that he would not be disappointed even if Anwar managed to seize power by the end of this year.

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim told a 20,000-strong rally that he had the numbers to form a new government and wants to meet with Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to discuss a handover.

"Tomorrow is the D-day. We are ready to form the government. We have the numbers and we are ready to announce tomorrow.

"A peaceful transition is paramount," he added, conceding that there will not be a change of government tomorrow as he had promised earlier.

According to him, Pakatan Rakyat has submitted a letter to Abdullah today seeking a meeting for a smooth transition of power.

The opposition leader also did not provide more information on how many MPs Pakatan has in the bag and the number of government defectors.

Anwar will need at least 31 defectors from BN and perhaps over 40 for a stable Pakatan government.

"I believe that the government will fall in the next few weeks," he told journalists after the rally.

The massive crowd had earlier gathered at the Kelana Jaya stadium in Petaling Jaya to celebrate Pakatan's 'Hari Malaysia' celebration.

ISA dragnet slammed

Anwar, who began his 45-minute speech at 10.45pm, also emphasised the importance of Sabah and Sarawak to Malaysia.

Most of those in the crowd are at the stadium tonight in the belief that Anwar would make an important announcement on the formation of a new government, which the PKR leader has repeatedly claimed he would do by tomorrow.

High expectation

Earlier, Anwar entered the venue at about 9.40pm to thunderous chants of ‘Reformasi!' and ‘Merdeka'.

Many Pakatan leaders were already at the stadium, most of them also believing that Anwar would make an important announcement at the rally.

"Anwar has promised us a new beginning and we will support him when the battle begins on the 16th... he is our new prime minister and the BN should realise this," said businessman Abdul Aziz Rashid, 36.

Don't invite police, military

Meanwhile, PKR information chief Tian Chua said the three-member opposition alliance had already secured a simple majority in parliament and that more government lawmakers would defect later.

pakatan rakyat sept 16 gathering crowd waving flagBut he said there were concerns that the coalition - which has ruled since independence from Britain 51 years ago - would stoke conflict in order to justify a crackdown to keep itself in power.

"We want Abdullah to assure us there will be no repressive force used, like involving the police or inviting the military to take control," he told AFP.

Tian said the opposition's push had been helped by the detention of an opposition politician, a prominent blogger and a journalist under draconian ISA.

pakatan rakyat 916 gathering kelana jaya 150908f flag.jpg"Abdullah's final crackdown made people lose hope that he is ever going to be a liberal reformer, which he promised," he said.

Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar defended the detentions but said it was a police operation and not his idea - comments ridiculed by the opposition, which said he and Abdullah must be held accountable.

Spirits were high at the stadium, which was adorned with Malaysian flags and posters demanding the release of the opposition politician and the blogger - who remain in custody while the journalist was freed.

At the rally, Anwar set out an agenda to fight corruption and protect the rights of all citizens in Malaysia.

"The Pakatan Rakyat government will uphold justice, a free judiciary, a free media and a professional police force," he said.

Mr Anwar to Badawi - Come Let's Have A Meeting!

:-)

Anwar to Pak Lah: Let's meet
Beh Lih Yi | Sep 13, 08 6:33pm

Anwar Ibrahim is seeking a meeting with Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to discuss national security in the wake of the ISA
MCPX
crackdown
and the future of Malaysian politics.

The proposal was agreed by the Pakatan Rakyat leadership council, Anwar told a press conference after the council meeting at the PKR headquarters this afternoon.

pakatan meeting isa arrests 130908 anwarThe council also comprise DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang and PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang. They were present at the meeting which requested Anwar to meet the prime minister.

The proposal was brought up after the government yesterday invoked the draconian Internal Security Act to arrest a prominent blogger, a journalist and an opposition politician. The journalist was released this afternoon.

The crackdown came ahead of Anwar’s threat to topple the BN federal government by next Tuesday. He claimed he has sufficient number of Barisan MPs to defect to the opposition alliance to do so.

Asked whether the proposed meeting with Abdullah was to effect a transition of power, Anwar replied, "It’s about the future direction of this country without specifically speaking about the transition.”

The opposition leader sidestepped a question on the likelihood of Abdullah's refusal to see him, saying that it will be an issue concerning national security and of paramount importance.

‘Possibility of a second wave’


Anwar also said that Pakatan’s Sept 16 plan was unrelated to the ISA arrests when asked whether he would defer his plan to ease the political tension in the face of more possible arrests.

“The priority is political stability. It’s not an issue of deferring, we have the number to move and we will move according to the mandate. We don’t want to allow the government to create political instability using the race card,” he stressed.

He also said that apart from national security, another major issue that Pakatan has to grasp with was that a huge number of BN legislators are abroad after being sent on an agricultural study tour of Tawain.

To another question, Anwar did not discount the possibility of more arrests on Pakatan leaders.

“There is a possibility of a second wave, we are mindful of that fact. That’s why we discussed that possibility separately and within PKR. We shouldn’t feel threatened, it’s Umno and BN leaders who feel threatened by public sentiments clamouring for change,” he said.

In a related development, the Pakatan Rakyat leadership council also agreed to jointly organise with the Selangor government a peaceful gathering at the Kelana Jaya stadium on the eve of September 16 to celebrate Malaysia Day.

Earlier, the council issued a one-page statement condemning the government’s “desperate move” to use the ISA on the trio and demand for their immediate release or to charge them in court.

pakatan meeting isa arrests 130908 anwar guan eng“We hope the government action is not the beginning of mass arrest of opposition leaders in their attempt to thwart the (plan) of Pakatan to form the federal government.

“The unstable situation is staged by the government to plant fear and anxiety in the people and can be a cause for national unrest,” read the statement.

Lim Kit Siang, Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng and PAS secretary-general Kamaruddin Jaffar also presented their views at the press conference with Anwar.

Guan Eng said he was particularly upset with the detention of senior MP Teresa Kok under the ISA as she is an elected representative.

He asked the government “to return to sanity” by releasing her immediately.

Old Dog Thief's Heart can not withstand 16.Sept.2008 Excitment

Old Dog Thief Lee Kuan Yew went to hospital for his heart attack signs showing up. But he did not died before his 85th birthday which is only just 2 days away from today. So he won't miss Mr. Anwar's promised birthday celebration for him on 16.Sept.2008 by taking over BN Regime.

Old dog thief didn't even missed his seminar which from hospital he attended via video conference.

What happened in Thailand and Malaysia are all too exciting to Old Dog Thief Lee Kuan Yew and his heart is obviously not taking them too well. His cousin Thug-Sin is on the run, Temasek's billions still burning up, his HOPE Samak cooked himself on not one but 2 cooking shows - lost power, in Malaysia his brotherly authoritarian regime of BN is falling on his birthday in just 2 days ahead. How can he not get a heart attack.

Fortunately he survived, and failed to dodge punishment by dying (like his brother Suharto).

Open your eyes and watch Malaysia Old Dog Thief! Your turn will come soon!

Malaysian Fighting for own Regime Change in Taiwan!

Political Tsunami in March 2008, Typhoon in September 2008, sweeping Taiwan now. Not punt for real, typhoon SINLAKU's satellite image is below, click to read news related. This heavenly sign symbolized and precisely reflects what is happening in Malaysian political battle which is taking place in Taiwan! This Typhoon will sweep Taiwan in the next 4 days, and after that it is old dog thief Lee Kuan Yew's birthday 16.Sept.2008, on which Mr. Anwar promised the regime to be changed for Malaysia.

This most crucial phase of the fight is not taking place on Malaysian soil but indeed in Taiwan. That BN sent 4 dozens of it's political-frogs in the the typhoon hit Taiwan this week to delay Mr. Anwar's regime change. Mr Anwar's Pakatan today sent 4 of it officials into the typhoon spinning Taiwan, to deal with the Renegade / Defection process to have it completed within the self-imposed dateline of 16.Sept.2008 which is LKy's birthday. :-) The number of defectors is the most crucial matter, not the date itself. As long as there is sufficient number to reach majority in the Malaysian parliament, Pakatan will take over the BN regime and Mr. Anwar will become the new Malaysian PM.

I think it is a matter of time, weather it happen on or before or after 16.Sept.2008 has only significant meaning to Old Dog Thief Lee Kuan Yew. :-)

Showdown Taipei as Sept 16 nears

Wong Choon Mei | Sep 12, 08 2:15pm A high-profile trip to Taiwan organised by the Backbenchers Club purportedly to study agriculture, but panned by the opposition as a ploy to thwart their plan to form a new government, may gather steam as the two camps dig in for a potential showdown in busy Taipei.
MCPX

This afternoon at 2pm, a five-member team from opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim's PKR party, consisting of vice-president Dr Lee Boon Chye, strategist Saifuddin Nasution, deputy election director Fuziah Salleh, publicity chief Tian Chua and PKR Wanita publicity chief Elizabeth Wong will fly to Taiwan, where they plan to stay at the same hotel as the backbenchers.

pkr weekly pc 120707 tian chua"Yes, definitely we are going, I'm just packing my things," Tian Chua told Malaysiakini this morning.

"We will be meeting with a few of the MPs. And besides talking about the need for them to rethink about the Barisan, we will also point out to them how Taiwan transformed itself from a one-party state into one of the most vibrant democracies in Asia without damaging the economy."

Anwar, whose PKR party together with PAS and DAP form the Pakatan Rakyat alliance, has been in talks with disgruntled Barisan Nasional backbenchers, promising voters his coalition would wrest control of Parliament by Sept 16. The Pakatan currently holds 81 out of the 222 parliamentary seats.

But Anwar's plan may come unstuck after the Barisan last week packed 49 of its legislators off on a tour to Taiwan, where they have become a favourite target of the local media there.

Their stay at the plush Taipei Hilton where they reportedly consumed sumptuous seafood buffets, as well as allegations they were offered ‘pocket money' of between RM50,000 and RM500,000 to go on the trip attracted widespread and assiduous press coverage almost daily.

Deadline looms

Chairperson of the BN Backbenchers Club Tiong King Sing, who organised the trip, has denied it was aimed at blocking defections to the Pakatan.

49 mp back benchers parliament taiwan study trip klia airport 090908"Officially, our tour finishes on Sept 13. In fact, about five to six MPs had already gone back on Wednesday," he told Singapore Straits Times in an interview yesterday.

"So there is still time to Sept 16. But I cannot rule out that some of them may want to extend their stay by one or two days," Tiong added.

Regardless of whether the PKR's mission in Taipei takes off or fizzles out, opposition members are also starting to hedge their bets as the Tuesday deadline nears.

"Whether the political transformation takes place in four days on 916 (Sept 16), or 1016 (Oct 16), 1116 (Nov 16) or in an early 13th general election is a secondary question to the important fact that the Malaysian political mould has been completely recast and it is only a matter of time a transition of federal power is effected," said DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang in a statement today.

"What is most significant about "916" is not whether federal power will change hands from Barisan to Pakatan in four days' time, but in the sea-change in the political attitude of Malaysians as compared to six months ago before the March 8 general elections," he added.

Despite the rhetoric from both camps, Malaysians have generally reacted with impatience and disgust more than anything else over the ruckus kicked up by the trip.

While some are angry with the BN for making a laughing stock of the country, there are also those who are waiting to throw the book at Anwar should he fail to deliver next week.

"The date might be delayed from September 16... but the agenda is still going on," it said, adding that one complicating factor had been the government's move to ship lawmakers overseas this week.

The statement was signed jointly by PKR secretary-general Salehuddin Hashim, PAS secretary-general Kamarudin Jaffar and DAP political education director Loke Siew Fook.

The ruling coalition sent 49 parliamentarians on a controversial and hastily arranged "study trip" to Taiwan, in what Anwar has said is an attempt to "corral and seclude" parliamentarians amid the high-stakes negotiations.

Leaders of Anwar's PKR, which fronts the three-member opposition alliance, were headed there today to meet up with the delegation, in a "gatecrashing" move that is likely to irritate the government.

"Our team will also meet with Taiwan's government and opposition parties to brief them on the political situation in Malaysia," he added.

Tour to officially end tomorrow

The leader of the government tour, Tiong King Sing, told the New Straits Times he was not worried about the opposition plans.

"They can send their leader, they can send whoever they want. It is up to them," he told the paper. "We have no fear."

tiong king singTiong (left), who is chairman of the government Backbenchers Club also told Singapore's Straits Times that the tour will officially finish tomorrow.

"In fact, about five to six MPs had already gone back on Wednesday."

However, he said that a few of the parliamentarians may extend their stay in Taiwan by one or two days.

But he said he did not know about any MPs making such plans, even
though personally he is planning a private trip to China and possibly
Vietnam before heading home.

Anwar needs 30 of the 140 coalition lawmakers to defect to form a new government. Most of the potential crossovers are believed to be from the Sabah and Sarawak.

London calling


By The Nation

Former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who is living in exile, made a call from London to make his preference known on who should be prime minister, People Power Party deputy spokesman Suthin Klangsaeng said on Thursday.





Thaksin's call happened ahead of today's party meeting to nominate a sole candidate for the job, Suthin said.
The party would heed the London advice made as a concerned citizen but opt for a free vote on the nomination, he said.
He also predicted that the turmoil would persist because the People's Alliance for Democracy would not accept any prime minister nominated by his party.

Certain PPP MPs reluctant to reinstate Samak


By The Nation

People Power Party MP Chaowarin Latthasaksiri voiced disapproval on Wednesday if his party would push for the reinstatement of Samak Sundaravej as prime minister.





Chaowarin said Samak has been entangled with several litigations which could cost him his job if allowed to resume office.

He said the main coalition party should search for the next prime minister from among the MPs within the six-party coalition alliance.

MP Piraphan Phalusuk from Isaan Pattana faction said his party should reconsider its backing of Samak. Piraphan said Deputy Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat might be a more suitable candidate for the job.

Snoh wants a non-controversial figure as PM



Pracharaj Party leader Snoh Thienthong on Wednesday reaffirmed his party as part of the coalition alliance led by the People Power Party.





Snoh made his party's stand during a meeting with three PPP leaders, Somchai Wongswat, Surapong Suebwonglee and Sompong Amornwiwat.

Following the meeting, Somchai said Snoh gave his green light for the PPP to name the next prime minister who should not be controversial in order to avoid fuelling the tensions.

The PPP is expected tomorrow to finalise its decision on prime minister and the party plans to submit just one name for House vote on Friday.

Don't reinstate Samak, say academics


By SATHIEN WIRIYAPANPONGSA
THE NATION
Published on September 11, 2008


Nineteen law lecturers yesterday called on MPs not to reinstate Samak Sundaravej as prime minister amid growing opposition to the idea proposed by politicians from the ruling People Power Party (PPP).





In their statement, the academics explained any attempt to reinstate Samak, who was disqualified in a Constitution Court ruling on Tuesday for conflict of interest, would be tantamount to "destroying the value of the Constitution".They said the constitutional ban on Cabinet members being employed by any business was an attempt to prevent public office holders from being influenced by private entities and that the court had interpreted the provision accordingly.

"Do not allow your decision to destroy the value of the Constitution and do not let your decision keep Thailand further away from being a society of virtue and ethics," said the statement.

Of the academics signing the statement, 13 were from Thammasat University, four from Naresuan University, one from Chulalongkorn University and one from Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University.
The academics included Banjerd Singkaneti, Komsan Phokong, Thitipan Chuabunchai, Rattasak Bamrungsuk, Sawaeng Boonchalermvipas and Surasak Maneesorn.

Chamlong Srimuang, a leader of the anti-government People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD), yesterday said reinstating Samak as prime minister would be "a childish act" and possibly irritate His Majesty the King.

He warned that Samak might be disqualified again if the Appeals Court on September 25 upheld a lower court's jail sentence against him.

"It is the PPP's right to nominate Samak as prime minister again, but what if royal endorsement is sought for his appointment, and Samak is disqualified again by the court ruling on September 25? Aren't they afraid that might irritate HM the King? It's a childish act," Chamlong said.

The Constitution stipulates that Cabinet members must lose their seat when they are sentenced by court to a term of imprisonment. On Tuesday, the Constitution Court disqualified Samak for violating the charter by retaining his role as a public company's employee while serving as prime minister. Samak hosted two television cooking shows, which the court described as a conflict of interest.

Chamlong yesterday said selection of a new prime minister was a matter for the House of Representatives.
The PAD does not have a favourite candidate for the seat, he said.

Meanwhile, academics and business people yesterday expressed opposition to the idea of reinstating Samak as prime minister. They said it was illegitimate and would do more harm than good to the country's politics and economy.

Jantana Suttijaree of Chiang Mai University's Faculty of Political Science and Public Administration said that as an MP, Samak had the right to be nominated as prime minister again, but any attempt to reinstate him would deprive him of legitimacy. "If Samak decides to return, the political conflict will worsen, and society will see a more serious rift," she said. Prasart Meetaem of Prince of Songkhla University's Hat Yai campus said with the court ruling, Samak was no longer qualified to assume the PM's post.

Thai Tapioca Trade Association president Niyom Chulaserekul said it would be fine if Samak were reinstated just to dissolve the House.

Anusit Phuwaset, chairman of the Thai Chamber of Commerce's northern chapter, said by reinstating Samak, the MPs from the coalition parties would show they did not care about people's feelings. He also warned of violent clashes between supporters and detractors.
