ALL-OUT WAR TO ERUPT IN UMNO? All eyes on Dr M’s speech at Perkasa assembly today

ALL-OUT WAR TO ERUPT IN UMNO? All eyes on Dr M’s speech at Perkasa assembly today
PETALING JAYA - All eyes will be on former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad when he launches non-governmental organisation Perkasa’s convention today.
While the general public and opposition parties wait for Dr Mahathir to add fuel to his seemingly strained ties with Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Umno delegates wait anxiously for further revelations.
With the Umno annual general assembly scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Dr Mahathir’s speech is considered to be a prelude to come at the assembly debate.
This despite speakers being briefed on guidelines for what can and cannot be said, given the sensitivity of issues such as Chinese schools and vernacular education.
They will scrutinise and decipher every word of the speech, searching for hidden messages and translate them accordingly. Some may pick up points and expand on them in the debate later.
Given the so-called delicate relationship between Dr Mahathir and Najib presently, Umno delegates will be looking at clues to confirm this theory, not just the points and arguments raised by Dr Mahathir.
With Perkasa’s philosophy of protecting Malay rights, the monarchy and Islam, Dr Mahathir’s speech is expected to spur the Malay spirit and better understand the issues affecting the community.
Umno’s current weak position is expected to figure prominently in his speech, and in fact, the ex-premier had suggested Selangor Umno be disbanded and pro-tem committees appointed to rejuvenate the party in the state.
In this aspect, Umno deputy president Tan Sri Muhyidin Yassin has already expressed fear the Malay party could become irrelevant come the next general election if party members persist on living in their comfort zones.
While Dr Mahathir’s speech may provide the core points for speakers at the impending Umno debate, speakers may add their own points to impress party leaders.
Dr Mahathir is seen as the front man to pressure Najib into changing the moderate and reconciliatory approach and not replace or amend the Sedition Act.
Perkasa views Najib’s transformation as not in accordance with its struggles, particularly concerning Malay rights and the sovereignty of Islam.
Since Dr Mahathir will be opening Perkasa’s annual convention, he is expected to stress Perkasa’s role in defending the Malays, the monarchy and Islam without going overboard.
The timing of the Perkasa convention a few days before the Umno assembly — whether purely by coincidence or not — is viewed by many as the perfect curtain raiser for the Umno assembly. -Malay Mail

FOR 3 SEN, NAJIB SELLS OUR SAFETY NET! RON95 may fall to RM2.27 from RM2.30 in Dec - minister

FOR 3 SEN, NAJIB SELLS OUR SAFETY NET! RON95 may fall to RM2.27 from RM2.30 in Dec - minister
The price of RON95 petrol may be three-sen cheaper at RM2.27 a litre from December 1, if average global crude oil prices remain at around the US$80 (RM286) a barrel for the whole of November.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Abdul Wahid Omar (pic) said consumers can expect to enjoy cheaper fuel, given that the current crude oil price slump was predicted to last about two years.
"But if global prices rebound, the managed float system will likely follow suit," he told reporters after attending a meeting with 50 animation students under the "Peneraju Skil Iltizam" programme Petaling Jaya today.
The government, has effective December 1, scrapped subsidies for RON95 petrol and diesel and replaced it with the managed float system.
This came about as a result of global fuel prices being lower than the pump price for RON95 and diesel. The price of RON97 has been determined by the managed float system since July 2010.

IS THIS THE SOLUTION? Police, army to conduct night raids at Camerons - Najib
SERDANG - The police and armed forces will be mobilising their personnel at Cameron Highlands to raid illegal opening of land here at night, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak (pix).
According to him, the measure was taken following his discussion with the Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Ahmad Shah, based on reports that such activities were frequently carried out by illegal immigrants at night.
"I have directed the Inspector-General of Police (Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar) and Armed Forces Chief (Gen Tan Sri Zulkifeli Mohd Zin) to send their troops so that a more comprehensive patrol could be carried out to nab the culprits," he said.
He was speaking to reporters after opening the 2014 Malaysian Agriculture, Horticulture and Agrotourism Exhibition (MAHA) at the Malaysian Agro Exposition Park Serdang (Meaps), here today.
On the proliferation of illegal immigrantS at the highlands, he said stricter and more effective enforcement would be conducted with the cooperation of the Pahang state government and the federal government.
Najib said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who is also the chairman of the Special Committee On Flash Floods in Cameron Highlands, would be visiting the highlands on Monday with Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob.
"I hope from the joint visit and discussion, we will take more effective actions and overcome the weak enforcement all this while to stem the problem of illegal farming," he said.
A flood and landslide incident at Kampung Raja in Ringlet and Lembah Bertam in Cameron Highlands on Nov 5 claimed five lives while more than 90 victims from 28 families were evacuated to a relief centre at the Ringlet community hall. – Bernama

BEFORE I would say 'stay & fight', now I say GO but don’t give up on Malaysia - Marina Mahathir

BEFORE I would say 'stay & fight', now I say GO but don’t give up on M'sia - Marina Mahathir
KUALA LUMPUR - Social activist Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir today urged migrating youth campaigners not to abandon Malaysia in their hearts, saying they can pursue their causes virtually even when they are no longer in the country.
The daughter of former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said she would previously have urged aspiring young activists to remain for their causes, but now understood that their physical presence was no longer necessary thanks to the advent of the Internet.
"Back then... I would have said stay and fight. But with the technology change, we are more connected.
"So now I would tell the youth, ‘you can go anywhere you want but stay engaged, stay invested in Malaysia,’" Marina told a private dialogue session with young activists here.
The event was organised by polls rights group UndiMalaysia.
Marina was replying to a query by a young activist who said most youths are now thinking of leaving the country out of frustration with the socio-political situation here.
Last month, political observers including former Cabinet minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim said Malays will soon join the Chinese in emigrating from Malaysia in a bid to escape the growing religious fundamentalism and authoritarianism that leaves little room for free thought and dissent.
While Malaysia bills itself as a moderate Muslim nation, recent developments have demonstrated an increasingly conservative and hardline approach to Islam here that is intolerant of cultures and practices not sanctioned by religious groups and authorities.
Over the years, Islamic authorities have gradually become more rigid in their interpretation and application of the Shariah code in Islam.
Marina had then also said she knew of several Malays who say they do not want to return to their homeland.
“It’s not for economic reasons, but simply because they feel that the environment here has become so negative and oppressive that it’s impossible to be able to live as peaceful, productive citizens anymore,” Marina told Malay Mail Online then.
More than two million Malaysians have emigrated since Merdeka.
Last year, a total 308,834 high-skilled Malaysians moved overseas, with 47.2 per cent going to Singapore, 18.2 per cent to Australia, 12.2 per cent to US and the rest to other countries like UK and Canada.
According to the same report, the number of skilled Malaysians living abroad rose 300 per cent in the last two decades, with two out of every 10 Malaysians with tertiary education opting to leave for either Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries or Singapore. -Malay Mail

“They are believed to be foreigners who were trying to enter Malaysia illegally through the Indonesian waters,” he said in a statement here yesterday.
He added however that cooperation with the Indonesian authorities on the matter was still ongoing in hopes to resolve the case.

He said inspections by the Fisheries Department on the families of fishermen in the peninsular also revealed no family members were reported missing while families of fishermen in Sabah and Sarawak were currently being inspected.
