Why silent on graft when ‘in power’? Zahid Hamidi asks ex- EC chief

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 15 — Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi took a swipe at Perkasa’s Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman today for not speaking up on government corruption while in office.

In veiled remarks, he suggested the former Election Commission (EC) chairman has a hidden agenda in raising the issue now.

“Why didn’t you say it when you were in power?” asked Zahid who is also Umno vice-president.

He said Rashid, who is now Perkasa vice-president, appears to have become bolder only after leaving the civil sevice.

“It must be that he didn’t get something,” Zahid told reporters in Malay after officiating at a police conference in Cheras.

In his speech at Perkasa’s annual general meeting yesterday, Rashid accused the federal government of failing to address widespread corruption plaguing the civil service.

“The Chinese, the Indians they corrupt our leaders. That is because they are smart.”

“Now, even the Malays corrupt our leaders,” he added.

Rashid also urged Perkasa to seriously consider taking the next step and registering itself as a political entity to replace Umno, claiming the ruling Malay party has fallen short of expectations in its fight for Bumiputera rights.

“I would urge Perkasa to fortify efforts to become a political body which will rule this country.

“Once you run this country, no need to complain (to Umno and Barisan Nasional),” he said during his speech.

The Perkasa man said that although Barisan Nasional (BN) has not lost the political battlefield, the coalition is very weak.

“They have not lost, but they are ‘nyawa-nyawa ikan’ (almost dying),” he claimed.

He said he joined Perkasa without “baggage” but could tell many stories about some Umno leaders instead.

Rashid lamented how each year resolutions passed at Umno’s general assembly would not be enforced properly.

Perkasa veep moots political party status for group, says Umno, BN weak

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 14 — Perkasa must amplify its efforts to become a full-fledged political party to govern Malaysia instead of Umno, vice-president Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman said today after citing his disappointment in the ruling party.

Rashid, who was formerly Election Commission (EC) chairman, said Perkasa should seriously consider taking the next step and registering itself as a political entity to replace Umno, claiming the ruling Malay party has fallen short of expectations in its fight for Bumiputera rights.

“I would urge Perkasa to fortify efforts to become a political body which will rule this country.

“Once you run this country, no need to complain (to Umno and Barisan Nasional),” he said during his speech at Perkasa’s annual general assembly here.

The Perkasa man said that although Barisan Nasional (BN) has not lost the political battlefield, the coalition is very weak.

“They have not lost, but they are ‘nyawa-nyawa ikan’ (almost dying),” he claimed.

Rashid lamented how each year resolutions passed at Umno’s general assembly would not be enforced properly.

“So many resolutions made by Umno, most of it goes into the dustbin.

“I have no baggage, I joined Perkasa. I can tell about his baggage (some Umno members),” the Perkasa leader said.

Rashid pointed out that the main problem that the federal government has left unaddressed is corruption.

“The Chinese, the Indians they corrupt our leaders. That is because they are smart.”

“Now even the Malays corrupt our leaders,” he added.


Stop lying about real situation in country, ex-EC chief tells Najib


Without mincing his words, former Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman today told Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to stop lying to the public about the real situation in the country.

"Please stop lying to the rakyat and go do your work. Please also tell the Malay leaders to be honest and do whatever they can (to help the Malays)," said Abdul Rashid, a Perkasa vice-president, at the Malay rights group's annual general meeting today.

Abdul Rashid also told the government to stop harping about a report which said Malaysians were earning about RM24,000 per capita.

Without stating the study or where he got the figures from, Abdul Rashid told Putrajaya to stop "bragging" about the figure as it was a big lie.

Abdul Rashid took issue with corruption in Umno and the government, saying he did not mind if Umno supporters were to get upset with him for openly criticising Najib, saying he had nothing to hide.

"Now, I am very loud in criticising people but no one dares to come to me and criticise me because I do not take a percentage or steal other people's money. I have nothing to hide," said Abdul Rashid, adding that he had confronted Najib before on previous occasions.

"I told him right to his face. I also told him that if he doesn't like me he could just demote me but instead of demoting me, I was promoted," said the retired election commissioner, who managed six of Malaysia's general elections.

He was the commission's secretary from 1979 and its chairman from 2000 to 2008.

Abdul Rashid said that whatever suggestions made at the Perkasa annual meeting today would not "go anywhere" as "the corrupt are not going to listen".

"They (Umno) are afraid that they will lose in the general election. I said they are not, but we will have lots of challenges," said Abdul Rashid.

He also suggested today that Perkasa ought to become a political party to rule the country, as it was the only way to ensure that the country would be led by the "right people".

“I urge Perkasa to fortify efforts to become a political body which will rule this country.

“Once you run this country, no need to complain (to Umno and Barisan Nasional),” he said.

Rashid said the main weakness of the Federal government was its failure to address corruption.

“The Chinese, the Indians they corrupt our leaders. That is because they are smart. Now even the Malays corrupt our leaders,” said.

The veteran civil servant said that although Barisan Nasional (BN) was still the ruling coalition, it was in a very weak state, like a fish out of water drawing its dying breath.

“They have not lost, but they are ‘nyawa-nyawa ikan’ (almost dying),” he said.

Criticising Umno for its weakness, he also snubbed the party's annual general assembly held each year, saying that the resolutions passed were not enforced and only ended up in the "dustbin". – December 14, 2014.

I am a hero and you are ‘bangsat’, Ibrahim tells critics in Umno


Datuk Ibrahim Ali today declares himself a hero of the Malay community and slams his critics within Umno as "bangsat" (despicable person) for their failure to understand the movement's agenda in defending Malay rights and Islam.

He directed the remark at Umno leaders who were known for being critical of both Perkasa and another Malay rights group, Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (Isma).

Among them are Umno youth head Khairy Jamaluddin and his deputy Khairul Azwan Harun, Public Accounts Committee chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed, Sabah speaker Datuk Seri Salleh Said Kruak, and former Umno supreme council member Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah.

"I declare myself as a hero of Islam and Malays in Malaysia," said Ibrahim, adding that the "liberals" he had named had no courage to address the real issues and had thus resorted to attacking Perkasa and Isma.

I am a hero and you are ‘bangsat’, Ibrahim tells critics in Umno

He described them as "nobody" but felt that he had to mention their names in his speech at Perkasa's 5th Annual Conference in Kuala Lumpur this morning.

He said some Umno leaders were also afraid of being associated with Perkasa that they refused to take photographs with him and other Perkasa leaders.

"They were so afraid of ruining their image. I am just a small man," said Ibrahim.

He said some Umno leaders had even told the party members who joined Perkasa to leave the movement but nobody listened.

"In fact, our membership have increased over the years. I was told that Perkasa now processes about 250 applications daily," said Ibrahim.

He claimed that Perkasa currently has about 700,000 members and described the movement as "a beehive that produces quality honey which can be extracted to cure many ‘ailments’".

However, if it is poked or disturbed, the culprit will be stung, he added.

Ibrahim said Perkasa members are growing steadily with chapters being established in Indonesia and United Kingdom.

Yesterday, Perkasa vice-president Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman reportedly told Khairy to “shut up” following the Umno Youth chief's comment on Ibrahim's burn bibles remark in October.

Abdul Rashid also noted that the leadership of Umno was becoming more "sick" by the day, adding that the party needed to make many changes to improve its standing.

Apart from Khairy, other Umno leaders Ibrahim had mentioned were also known to be critical of the organisation. – December 14, 2014.
