Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Khaled Nordin said the possibility of consumers paying less for fuel was discussed and that the mechanics were being worked out. Information Minister Datuk Shabery Cheek said the matter was studied by the Cabinet, but declined to elaborate.
Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Samad, when contacted, declined comment, saying that it would be best to wait for Abdullah to make an announcement at an appropriate time. On June 4, the Government raised petrol and diesel prices, stating that it could no longer continue to subsidise fuel prices at the then rate. However, it would continue to provide a 30 sen per litre discount on the market price.
Currently, motorists pay RM2.70 a litre for petrol and RM2.58 a litre for diesel at the pump. Shahrir was quoted by Bloomberg.com on Tuesday as saying that the Government might reduce fuel prices if crude oil prices stay at US$125 (RM408) per barrel for at least three weeks. Shahrir said that it that was the case then a reduction in prices could come within the year to enable the Government to keep its pledge of maintaining a 30 sen per litre subsidy. “Why not, it would be good news, right?” he said during the interview. - THe STaR ONLiNe
The doctor who examined Mohd Saiful, 23, at Pusrawi Hospital found no evidence of sodomy as there was zero tear and scar, zero active bleeding and no ulcer or pus in his anus. The Pusrawi's medical report was carried by a news portal days ago. The PKR de facto leader was speaking to reporters yesterday after giving his statement on investigations at the Federal Territory religious department.
He had filed a complaint against Mohd Saiful with the department earlier where he said Mohd Saiful had falsely accused him of fornication without producing four witnesses. Anwar said he provided the department with all the facts, adding that although the investigations were similar to the police probe he felt the ones done by the religious department were more professional.
The de facto PKR leader said he did not know what to expect from the police.
“If the police went by the law, professional standards and conduct, there would be no reason to charge me for sodomy,” he claimed. Anwar also accused the police of pursuing the sodomy allegations because he planned to contest in a by-election and spoke of a new vision for Malaysia and the Malaysian economic agenda and a new Malaysian society. “Don’t cast aspersions on my character and claim that I am being used by the Chinese or planted by the Americans,” he said yesterday. He also said that because of his Malaysian economic agenda there were some senior Malay police officers who accused him of being a traitor to the Malays as they believed he would sell out the country to the Chinese. - THe STaR ONLiNe
EXCLUSIVE MOVIE TRAILER: "AWeSoMe 1st FuLL TRaiLeR OF HaRRY POTTeR AND THe HaLF BLooD PRiNCe (PReMieRiNG ON NoVeMBeR, 21st 2008)".....
SYNOPSIS: Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn't counted on Romilda Vane's chocolates! And then there's Hermione, simpering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.
And yet.....As in all wars, life goes on. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate - and lose a few eyebrows in the process. The Weasley twins expand their business. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Classes are never straightforward, though Harry receives some extraordinary help from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince. So it's the home front that takes center stage in the multilayered sixth installment of the story of Harry Potter. Here at Hogwarts, Harry will search for the full and complex story of the boy who became Lord Voldemort - and thereby find what may be his only vulnerability.

The Osman Conspiracy?
Posted by: samcwpen
The plots thicken and there does not seem to be an organisation that is not a part of the magic tricks. After my post, I could not help but look for more information as to who this good Doctor is. Lo and behold, I find that he is a registered medical practitioner who has been practising in Malaysia for the past 15 years, although he is only fully registered for the past three years.
Doctor's Registration, Malaysian Medical Council(http://mmc.gov.my/v1/searchmmc/main_search.php?action=detail&id=8528)
The interesting facts found is that Dr. Hamid is a Burmese Muslim who has worked for three years at the Regional Islamic Da'wah Council of South East Asia and the Pacific (RISEAP) organisation from 1993 to 1995.
Doctor's Registration, Malaysian Medical Council(http://mmc.gov.my/v1/searchmmc/main_search.php?action=detail&id=8528)
Regional Islamic Da'wah Council of Southeast Asia and the Pacific (RISEAP) (http://riseap.org/)
Coincidently, Anwar was also one of the Supreme Council members in this organisation (RISEAP) at around this period of time.
Islam in Malaysian Foreign Policy
Anwar also attended the "2nd World Peace Forum" on the 17th June 2008 in Jakarta. The other attendees from Malaysia were Abdullah Muhammad Shafiq Ong, Regional Islamic Da'wah Council of Southeast Asia and the Pacific (RISEAP).
The Second World Peace Forum
After Working for RISEAP, he went to work in Sarawak for four years before coming back to work in Kuala Lumpur. His current registration details are as follow:
THAN AUNG @ MOHAMED OSMAN HAMID
UNIVERSITY OF RANGOON-RANGOON MEDICAL COLLEGE
DATE OFFULL REGISTRATION: 09-12-2005
Current Registered Practise (2008):
Hospital Pusrawi s/bLot 149, Jalan Tun Razak, 50400 Kuala Lumpur, WILAYAH PERSEKUTUAN KUALA LUMPUR
Can anyone clarify the relationship between Dr. Mohamed Osman Hamid and Anwar Ibrahim, especially when they were both active at RISEAP in the early 1990's and late 1980's? Can anyone also comment if Saiful has any connection with Dr. Hamid, at RISEAP or at University Malaya, where he later worked for another 5 years between 2003 and 2007? Clearly, Anwar is a man of many talents and many powerful friends, including the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, the US State Department, the World council of Mosques and RISEAP.
It makes one wonder how far does the conspiracy go and what his true intentions are, as he successfully continues to court and win over the public opinion of not only Malaysians, but the world at large, with his pretty but vulnerable and shy "bride" routines. It just makes me sick, watching all this play-acting. If there is one thing I hate the most, it is in being treated like a mushroom. Kept in the dark, and fed lots of bull-shit!!!
I rest my case.
Speaking to reporters at the Federal Territory Religious Department Wednesday, he lashed out Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan, whom he claimed had a personal vendetta against him. "Let me remind the government and authorities that this country is not a police state. The decision must be based on facts and law not based on Musa Hassan's personal wishes and vendetta from 1998 right through 2008.
"If they follow the law, the facts, the alibi, the medical report, why do they even consider? (charging)," he asked. Anwar has been accused by 23-year-old Saiful Bukhari Azlan, his former aide, of sodomy. However the initial medical report from the Pusrawi Hospital showed that Saiful had not been sodomised. Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said that medical report was only one piece of evidence of many pieces the police were putting together. Anwar also said he had no fear of the Hospital KL's medical report of Saiful and believed that it would vindicate him. - THe STaR ONLiNe
Beliau merupakan pegawai perubatan yang berasal dari Myanmar dan pernah berkhidmat di beberapa buah hopsital kerajaan sebelum menjadi pegawai perubatan di Pusrawi. Tambah sumber itu, Dr. Mohamed Osman telah mengambil cuti sejak seminggu yang lalu dan tidak diketahui di mana beliau berada sekarang. Dr. Mohamed Osman menjadi perhatian kerana dikatakan telah mendapati tiada kesan Mohd. Saiful telah diliwat.
Semalam, portal berita Malaysia Today mendakwa polis telah menahan seorang doktor bagi membantu siasatan kes liwat membabitkan Anwar yang juga Penasihat Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR). Malah, portal berkenaan juga mendedahkan salinan laporan pemeriksaan doktor di sebuah pusat rawatan swasta di Kuala Lumpur, menjelaskan tiada kesan meliwat terhadap bekas pembantu kepada Anwar, Mohd Saiful.
Bagaimanapun Timbalan Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Ismail Omar menafikan polis menahan seorang doktor yang didakwa oleh portal berkenaan. Ismail berkata polis telah pun merakamkan kenyataan Dr. Mohamed Osman berhubung laporan tersebut sebelum ia nya tersebar di internet semalam. Beliau berkata, doktor lelaki tersebut antara 18 saksi yang sudah dipanggil untuk direkodkan keterangan sebelum ini. - mSTaR ONLiNe
P/s: So does the Uncle Pet has testied that his nephew has been checked at the Pusrawi Hospital for the initial medical check up. It was the truth that Saiful was been checked by Dr. Mohammed and the report also mentioned that he has to undergo further check up at the Government Hospital. I might guess that Pusrawi didn't wanna take any risk of having this malicious defamation of the sodomy case against DSAI and they've taken drastic and wise decision by asking him to go to the other hospital although they have all sort of state-of-the-art facilities and not to mention the highly credible doctors as compared at the Government Hospital. Look at his uncle, so temper and so arrogant of asking DSAI to take the oath and the best part is when the reporter asked him about the condition of Saiful, he just said that "he's strong!!, he's strong!!"....Quite funny to hear that 'he's strong' despite the fact that in real situation, he wasn't strong enough to topple a 60-year old man with a back acne while being sodomized by his former boss....Damn a blatant lie statement!!!!

"A WHoPPiNG 7.7% OF THe C.P.I As CoMPaReD TO LaST 27-YeaR (THe HiGHeST MaLaYSia'S INFLaTioN RaTe ReCoRD So FaR)".....
He said the inflation would probably remain at 7.7% for July because it would see the impact of increase in the electricity tariff. Reading a report by the Statistics Department, he said the CPI for January to June this year had also increased by 3.7% compared with the same period last year, which was from 105.1 to 109.
Index for food and non-alcoholic beverages for June compared to the same month last year showed high percentage change of 10.0% while the index for non-food increased by 6.7%. From January to June, index for food and non-alcoholic beverages increased by 6.1% and non-food 2.6%, while among the groups with high weights were transport (+4%), and housing, water, electricity, gas and other fuels (+ 1.4%).
The 6.1% increase in the index for food and non-alcoholic beverages was the result of increases in the index for items such as milk, cheese, eggs, rice, bread, cereals, meat, vegetables, seafood, fruits, sugar, jam, honey, chocolate, confectionary and fats. Among the food items that recorded notable increase in the June index were tomatoes, chicken eggs, rice, glutinous rice, imported beef, beehoon, dried noodles, watermelon, carrots, chicken and wheat flour.
Speaking to reporters at his office here yesterday, Shahrir said his proposal to have a dedicated agency to help efficiently distribute subsidised goods to rural folks would be submitted to the Cabinet in two to three weeks. “There is not much we can do for the price pressures but more fine-tuning of a distribution system to ensure subsidised goods reach the target group is vital,” he said. He said he was looking to increasing the number of food items on the price-control list to help the lower income group.
Food items on the list now were only general-purpose flour, cooking oil, white bread and rice. The basket of goods for calculating the CPI is done twice in five years with the last one in 2005, he said, adding that it has to be expedited to be more reflective of the market conditions. Shahrir said an average of 10 billion litres of diesel was being used annually with about 50% being subsidised by the Government. - THe STaR ONLiNe

His age coupled with his back problems made sleeping on the floor difficult and his doctor had to bring painkillers to help ease the pain. Anwar questioned why there was a need to arrest him when he had promised to go to IPK KL at 2pm. He urged senior police officers to exercise professional conduct in their investigation of the sodomy claims against him. “I am challenging the competence of the IGP (Tan Sri Musa Hassan) and A-G (Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail). They shouldn’t see it as a personal vendetta against me. I’m doing this as a citizen,” he said.
Twice during his press conference Anwar called on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to ensure the investigation is conducted professionally. He also asked the police to be transparent in their investigation, saying he gave them his full co-operation during the questioning as well as at Hospital Kuala Lumpur where he had a medical checkup which included “checking of my private parts”. Anwar said the only thing that he did not consent to was giving his blood for the DNA test as he was not convinced it would not be tampered with.
“Why should I give blood when my blood is already in their (the police’s) possession?” he asked. Anwar questioned why he still had not seen the details of the sodomy allegation against him despite having been questioned for five hours and detained overnight. “This is a very serious accusation yet we have still not seen the report,” he said.
He reiterated that he had a strong alibi. Commenting on the arrest of blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin, Anwar questioned why there was no investigation into Raja Petra’s allegations when "there is evidence". Speaking to reporters after the press conference, Anwar’s lawyer Sankara Nair said Anwar’s bail expires on Aug 18 when he will have to report to the police. He added that Anwar will only give a DNA sample if ordered by a court. At another press conference, at Bukit Aman, the IGP said police are looking at the possibility of getting a court order to compel Anwar to give his DNA sample. - THe STaR ONLiNe

But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet's operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.
On CID chief reveals why Anwar was arrested
Diana Husin: Do the police have to arrest him escorted by a convoy of 15 patrol cars and special squad cops with balaclava? No wonder they can’t find Bala (and his whole family) because all the police are deployed to get Anwar.
CK Chim: If only the Federal CID director Bakri Zinin can exercise the same level of anticipation in eradicating the state of corruption and crime in this country. His action in sending in 15 police cars and men in balaclava to arrest DSAI one hour before the stated deadline is absolutely amazing. Just like their road blocks over the weekend in ‘anticipation’ of the mass demonstration at the Parliament House on Monday when everyone else were not even aware of such an event. No wonder our country is going down the tube what with such kind of people manning the security of our country.
Peter: I see no reason why the police must arrest Anwar before expiry of the deadline. How did the CID chief know that Anwar would not proceed to the police headquarters after going home? With all the surveillance by the police being focussed on Anwar alone, what were the possibilities that Anwar could escape to neighbouring country?
Yes, Bakri Zinin, your reasoning went against logic and we would not buy your story. Coming to the way Anwar was arrested. Can you explain why you needed 15 police patrol cars and a four-wheel drive to escort him to the police station? Also tell us why did the arresting officers had to wear a balaclava? It is mind boggling! Is Anwar a terrorist high on a wanted list? If not, he did not deserve to be arrested in such a manner. As far as I know, soldiers would be dressed in balaclava when raiding terrorist hideouts.
DelCapo: I want to express my utter disgust at the police's actions. This is a 60-year old man with a bad back. He had just spent hours at the ACA. He had excused himself, with apologies, from the ACA to make sure he would not be late for the 2pm appointment with the CID. Was he armed and dangerous like a terrorist? Was he speeding towards the expressway to Thailand or Singapore or the airport or a seaport for an escape?? Why the 10 police cars? Why the balaclava-clad special force? Where was the arrest warrant? I would like to know which part of police professionalism instruct an overkill and use of force under the circumstances above?
Where? It shows there was an instruction by the IGP and BN government to use excessive force. It displayed no respect for the ‘innocent till proven guilty principle’, it is against democracy, against human rights, against rules of law. You showed that it was political and personal. It is a total disgrace. You have put all Malaysians to utter shame.
Vijayya Segootan: When Anwar agreed to be present at 2 pm, there is no reason for the police to arrest Anwar before the deadline. Where did the CID Chief receive his orders from? You are paid by the rakyat and should be faithful to the rakyat. The CID chief, the Barisan government should resign for this shameful act. This is an abuse of power.
William D: What a flimsy excuse to say that they were afraid that Anwar would not turn up at the appointed time of 2 pm, so they have to arrest him earlier at 12.55 pm. If Anwar can go to the ACA office in Putrajaya, I see no reason why he would not appear at the police headquarters.
If they were afraid that he would not turn up, then why not arrest him at the Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka where the debate was held on Tuesday night? All they have to do is wait for him to come out from the building, put their hands on his shoulders and say, ‘You are under arrest’. Just to arrest one man, do you honestly need 15 patrol cars and men clad in black jackets and balaclava? And yet our prime minister said Anwar is irrelevant.

“I can confirm no DNA was taken. At this stage, we are not prepared to agree to that,” Sivarasa told reporters. Anwar was brought to the hospital after his statement was taken yesterday afternoon. He was arrested at 1pm just outside his house in Segambut Dalam. His lawyer Sankara Nair said Anwar, who had finished his appointment with the Anti-Corruption Agency in Putrajaya in the morning, was heading home to refresh himself and say goodbye to his family before going to the police headquarters.
“But as we neared Anwar’s house, we were stopped by policemen and members of the Special Ops Units (UTK) wearing balaclavas,” he told a press conference in the afternoon. “At 11.20am, we told the ACA we had to stop. The officer was reluctant and wanted to finish everything off but we said we had to meet the police,” he added. Sankara said Anwar had no intention of skipping his meeting with the police.
“We promised the ACA we would return on Monday,” he said. Sankara said that at around 12.45pm, he received a call from the police asking if Anwar would be present at the station later, to which Sankara said yes. “But a few minutes later, he was arrested,” he said. Anwar, together with his driver, were in the car with Sankara and his other counsel R. Sivarasa at the time. Sankara said one Supt Taufek, who was in uniform, made the arrest under Section 377C of the Penal Code, although no warrant was produced.
The section is for the offence of carnal intercourse against the order of nature without consent. The lawyer confirmed that the police did not use weapons or handcuff Anwar during the arrest. Sankara said he was disappointed with the police for arresting Anwar when they had given him a 2pm deadline. Sankara, who left the police station at 6pm, said Sivarasa stayed on to advise Anwar, as police allowed only one counsel to be present.
He said there was nothing much the lawyers could do for Anwar at this point in time. “Police can detain him for 24 hours before requesting a remand order from the magistrate for a maximum period of 14 days. “All we can do at this stage is to argue our case with the magistrate on why the remand should not be granted,” he said. About 11.15pm yesterday, PKR supreme council member Badrul Hisham Shaharin addressed the crowd which had gathered outside the police headquarters and told them that Anwar would be held overnight. He also urged the crowd, which held a candlelight vigil, to remain calm. - THe STaR ONLiNe

Sejumlah 18,684 pembaca menyertai tinjauan pendapat tersebut, dengan 17,240 atau 95 peratus bersetuju bahawa hujah-hujah Anwar adalah lebih meyakinkan.

Shabery pula kelihatan kurang merujuk kepada nota-notanya. Bagaimanapun, 90 peratus pembaca percaya, menteri penerangan itu mengelak menjawab banyak soalan yang dikemukakan oleh moderator dan dua orang penalis. Diminta memberi mata 1 hingga 10 bagi kedua-dua pendebat tersebut, Anwar ternyata lebih menyerlah daripada Shabery.

#DeJa-Vu# ANWaR Has BeeN ARReSTeD: "DoLaH, DoLaH, Hoi DoLaH!!!; Ko TiDoQ LaGi La Nie. JaNJi LaiN, KoTaKaN LaiN!!!!"....
Anwar Ibrahim was returning from the Anti Corruption Agency to his home after giving a statement pertaining to the police report that has been filed regarding suppression of material facts in the case involving him in 1998. He was accompanied by his senior legal team, staff, and security.
As he entered the neighborhood of his home, a contingent of ten police cars, half unmarked and half patrol, forced the two cars in Anwar Ibrahim’s entourage to stop. There was a contingent of 20 balaklava-clad masked commandos (UTK) who accosted him, reminiscent of the forces sent to arrest Anwar Ibrahim at his home in September 1998. An officer approached Anwar Ibrahim and demanded that he accompany the police in an unmarked vehicle to the Kuala Lumpur Police Contingent Headquarters. His lawyers were not permitted to travel with him to the police station.
This arrest has taken place less than fifteen hours after Anwar Ibrahim appeared live on Malaysian television for the first time since 1998 and announced to millions of viewers his intention to stand for election, and upon the formation of a new government, to lower the domestic price of fuel by 50 sen. The overwhelming majority of Malaysians expressed their support of his televised statement.
These events are deeply disturbing to us and indicate that this entire episode is a repeat of the actions taken against Anwar Ibrahim in 1998. During the last few weeks the government owned mainstream media has demonized and vilified him. His staff has been harassed and we see a conspiracy being hatched to thwart the political change that is imminent in Malaysia. Under no circumstances will the people of Malaysia and the international community tolerate any harm coming to Anwar Ibrahim. We remind Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi of the promise he made to ensure Anwar Ibrahim’s protection.
We have been able to communicate with Anwar Ibrahim, who calls upon his supporters and the people of Malaysia to remain calm and to reject any attempts at provocation, which will give a pretext for an emergency situation to be declared. - OFFICE OF ANWAR IBRAHIM
P/s: Here are some important facts and figures that seem to be interested to know:
(1) Government is always keen on reviewing and forecasting our Petroleum-based materials (crude oils and natural gas) reserve and it seems that they were forecasting again up to 2025 provided that there are no more exploration being done by the Petronas in the local and international as well.
(2) Actually, they've forecasted our Petroleum-based substances reserved until 2005. We've been in 2005 and none of statements have been made by the Government that Malaysia is now a net importer despite the facts that our Petroleum reserve is empty. And now, Petronas are making a lot of revenue for the last 10 years (1995) by explorating the 'black gold' rigorously in Terengganu, Sabah and Sarawak offshore. Currently, they are making a whopping RM61 billion net profit which has been announced by the Petronas's CEO yesterday.
(3) Although the inflation rate at the Venezuala, Norway and Saudi Arabia are sky-rocketing (30%), they've one strong and good reason of having such a high percentage of inflation rate but can retain its fuel price as lower as possible: Earning rate/capita is higher than the other countries - Most of the workers at these countries were given a huge amount of working salary.
(4) Weird situation: Malaysia is having in high fuel prices and simultaneously has resulted in high inflation rate (approximately 8%). But in Iran, Saudi Arabia and Norway; they have the highest inflation rate (30%) but still can retain its fuel prices at the lowest level.

"Apa yang mengecewakan lagi ialah, disebabkan oleh pertukaran stesen penyiaran dari stesen kerajaan kepada stesen swasta, masa penyiaran telah dikurangkan dari satu jam setengah kepada 52 minit ditambah dengan 8 minit iklan," kata Tian dalam satu kenyataan. "Pertukaran stesen penyiaran dan pengurangan masa siaran jelas adalah untuk menyekat orang awam daripada mengikuti perdebatan yang jarang ini bagi mendengar penjelasan Anwar Ibrahim berhubung dengan isu harga minyak.

P/s: Don't be so sure of what Dolah Badawi said. It's just a plan and most probably I'd say a political rhetoric on how to divert UMNO's Chief Division decision from being involved in promoting Najib to challenge him for the top post. For me, it was an unwise decision on promoting back UMNO back on track. This prudent step could be just a diversion of what is gonna happen in the next 3 months time. In fact, I'd always bear in mind that in the political matters, friends can be our most fear of all kinds, words and appearances can be deceiving and everything that happens today can be flip-flopped in the blink of an eyes. I just wonder for a second, why did it happen (the sudden UMNO's meeting) in the sudden time when there was a motion of no-confidence being filed on the same day (3.00pm yesterday) by Dr. Wan Azizah? If the transition day is gonna be on June, 2010; why on the earth that the announcement should be made yesterday?

“Someone who is considered more loyal to Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi will be replacing him (Najib). However, the replacement candidate will not take over the top post in 2010 as he is inexperienced. “Abdullah will be more than willing to remain in the post until the 13th general election,” wrote Dr Mahathir. He also wrote that Abdullah did not practise what he preached when he gathered Umno division leaders and told them not to challenge him for the presidency.
“As usual, as in Umno administration under Abdullah, when a directive is given to obstruct an action, the president does not see himself subjected to it,” he said, adding that Najib would be assured that there would be no challengers for his job. - THe STaR ONLiNe
8 Julai 2008, Suara Keadilan Online, KENYATAAN AKHBAR KETUA PEMBANGKANG
Usul di bawah Peraturan Mesyuarat 18(1) dan (2)
Sebentar tadi saya dengan diiringi wakil parti-parti komponen Pakatan Rakyat telah menghantar surat kepada Yang di-Pertua Dewan Rakyat untuk membawa satu Usul di bawah Peraturan Mesyuarat 18(1) dan (2). Usul tersebut berbunyi:
“Bahawa Dewan yang mulia ini mengambil ketetapan tidak percaya terhadap kepimpinan YAB Perdana Menteri Malaysia dan jemaah menteri beliau dalam menjalankan urus tadbir negara disebabkan terhakisnya keyakinan rakyat terhadap integriti kerajaan.”
Pilihanraya Umum ke-12 menyaksikan ‘Tsunami Politik’ yang mengakibatkan 5 negeri dan juga Wilayah Persekutuan jatuh ke tangan Pakatan Rakyat sekaligus menafikan penguasaan majoriti 2/3 Barisan Nasional. Kemenangan tipis BN ini telah dicapai melalui manipulasi SPR dan pembohongan yang tidak bermaruah. Harga minyak telah dinaikkan secara mengejut selepas PRU walaupun Timbalan Perdana Menteri semasa melancarkan manifesto BN telah berjanji tidak akan menaikkannya. Negeri-negeri yang diperintah oleh Pakatan Rakyat juga dianaktirikan menunjukkan sikap BN yang bertentangan dengan semangat demokrasi dan federalisme. Ahli-ahli Parlimen BN yang bertindak menolak sikap pimpinan mereka yang tidak bertanggung-jawab diugut dan dipaksa supaya tidak bersuara.
Perkembangan ini mengakibatkan wujudnya krisis keyakinan terhadap YAB Perdana Menteri dan kabinet beliau. Rakyat kini dilanda beberapa krisis besar seperti harga minyak yang terlalu membebankan rakyat, harga bahan makanan dan keperluan asas rakyat yang semakin mahal, keyakinan rakyat yang semakin terhakis terhadap institusi Polis, Peguam Negara dan Badan Kehakiman, Peningkatan kadar jenayah dan gejala Rasuah yang semakin membarah.
Kami yakin Dewan yang mulia ini wajar membincangkan Usul yang dikemukakan ini. Sekian, terima kasih.YB Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail
Ketua Pembangkang Dewan Rakyat

On whether the debate was brought up at the Cabinet meeting yesterday, Ahmad Shabery said it wasn’t discussed, adding: “The Prime Minister has already issued a statement that it (the debate) is good.” He said Anwar would be putting himself and his party at risk in the debate. “He is a leader and he always assumes that he can become the Prime Minister.
“But I’m nothing. I’m just a local leader in Umno,” he said. Ahmad Shabery also clarified that the debate was organised by Agenda Daily and not him or his ministry. In Taiping, Anwar said he would unveil a mechanism on how Malaysians could enjoy a lower price of petrol and diesel during the debate. He said he would debate with Ahmad Shabery even though he preferred to do it with the Prime Minister and his deputy. Anwar repeated his pledge that if Pakatan Rakyat were to take over the Government, the price of fuel would be reduced the next day.
He said it was irresponsible to compare the rise in the fuel and diesel prices in countries such as India and China unlike Malaysia which produces oil. He also denied that he was eroding Malay interests as alleged by Barisan Nasional. “I am only speaking as their rights had been sidelined by Malay leaders who have betrayed them,” he told a gathering in Batu Gantang. Earlier Gopeng MP Lee Boon Chye, a PKR vice-president, said there was no need for the Government to increase the oil price by 40% as it had given traders a good excuse to raise their prices. “The increase is a case of too much, too fast and made at a wrong time,” he said. - THe STaR ONLiNe

EXCLUSIVE: "THe DaY THe EaRTH STooD STiLL (KeeNu ReeVes'S CooL AcTiON Is BaCK-PReMieRiNG ON DeC, 12th 2008)"....
SYNOPSIS: "The Day the Earth Stood Still" is 20th Century Fox's contemporary reinvention of its 1951 classic. Keanu Reeves portrays Klaatu, an alien whose arrival on our planet triggers a global upheaval. As governments and scientists race to unravel the mystery behind the visitor's appearance, a woman (Jennifer Connelly) and her young stepson get caught up in his mission - and come to understand the ramifications of his being a self-described "friend to the Earth."
P/s: The way that he was acting in this latest film is merely the same in the Constantine (horror flick) and the Matrix Trilogy. He is so cool and always noticeably controlling his 'macho' during acting. I do like his styles and attitudes a lot. I wish I could have his Matrix suit as well….HeHeHe!!!
