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.

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.

"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.

Pakatan Rakyat has admitted it might not meet its goal of seizing power by next Tuesday as it sent a delegation to pursue potential defectors from the government on a trip to Taiwan.


Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim has repeatedly said he is "on track" to topple the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition by Sept 16 but his party said yesterday for the first time in a statement that it could be delayed.

september 16 political party jump"The process of transformation to a new government... is proceeding smoothly and we believe that Barisan Nasional will be replaced in a very short period," it said.

"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.
