Presiden KEADILAN mengenai Kerajaan Perpaduan

KENYATAAN MEDIA UNTUK EDARAN SEGERA

8 Jun 2009

Saya bagi pihak Parti Keadilan Rakyat (KeADILan) merakamkan ucapan tahniah kepada Parti Islam SeMalaysia (PAS) kerana berjaya melangsungkan muktamar tahunan kali yang ke-55 di Shah Alam baru-baru ini. Syabas juga saya ucapkan kepada barisan pimpinan PAS yang baru sahaja terpilih di dalam muktamar tersebut.

Muktamar PAS tahun ini menyaksikan isu kerajaan perpaduan menjadi perhatian umum. Pelbagai spekulasi dan andaian telah dibuat oleh pihak-pihak tertentu berikutan dari ucapan dasar Presiden PAS.

KeADILan berpendirian adalah sebaiknya untuk kami menunggu penjelasan dari pimpinan PAS berhubung isu kerajaan perpaduan mahupun sebarang bentuk perbincangan dengan Umno.

Sungguhpun begitu, kami tidak menghalang mahupun mempertikaikan hasrat mana-mana pihak untuk berbincang isu-isu yang membabitkan kepentingan nasional.

Saya mengambil kesempatan ini untuk mengulangi komitmen KeADILan untuk memastikan Pakatan Rakyat sentiasa berada di dalam keadaan kuat dan utuh. Kami yakin rakan-rakan kami, PAS dan DAP juga mempunyai iltizam yang sama demi memastikan agenda perubahan terlaksana di Malaysia.

Kenyataan Akhbar: Majlis Pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat

14 Mei 2009


Majlis Pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat telah mengadakan pertemuan di Pejabat PAS Jalan Raja Laut (14 Mei) dan telah mengambil keputusan berikut:

Pakatan Rakyat mengambil sikap terbuka dan bersedia untuk bertemu dengan YAB Perdana Menteri untuk memperkukuhkan demokrasi dan institusi kerajaan negeri Perak. Kami mengulangi pendirian bahawa mandat seharusnya diserahkan kembali kepada rakyat Perak untuk menentukan kerajaan yang sah.

Kami mengambil maklum bahawa terdapat badan-badan dan individu seperti Yang DiPertua Dewan Negara, institusi seperti Suhakam, Majlis Peguam, ahli akademik, pemimpin dari parti komponen BN dan pelbagai pihak lain yang berpandangan bahawa penyelesaian terbaik bagi masalah Perak adalah dengan membubarkan Dewan Undangan Negeri bagi membolehkan pilihanraya baru diadakan.

Pakatan Rakyat juga kesal dengan tindakan junta Myanmar yang telah menangkap pejuang hak asasi Myanmar Aung San Suu Kyi atas tuduhan remeh. Tuduhan tersebut adalah tidak munasabah dan tidak dapat diterima. Sehubungan dengan itu pihak kami menggesa kerajaan ASEAN untuk mengambil tindakan dan mendesak Myanmar membebaskan beliau tanpa syarat.

Perak oh Perak: MB Perak yang sah (updated)

Keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur hari ini membawa implikasi bahawa status MB Nizar sebagai MB Perak tidak dapat disangkal lagi.

Dengan itu Sultan Perak akan menerima beliau sebagai MB Perak yang sebenarnya dan mengenepikan Zambry Abd Kadir.

Pilihanraya Negeri Perak dijangka boleh berlaku dengan pembubaran bila-bila masa Dun Perak.

Nizar sedang dalam perjalanannya menuju ke Istana Sultan Perak.

Bar Council: People should decide

Echoing a similar view, the Bar Council said the ultimate answer to the political impasse in Perak does not lie with the courts.

judiciary forum lingam tape 171107 ragunath“The Malaysian Bar once again reiterates its position that the time has come for all concerned to acknowledge the writing on the wall,” said its chairperson Ragunath Kesavan.

“Both sides of the political divide must now realise that power has to be returned to where it rightfully belongs – in the hands of the people, the electorate of Perak.

“Let them cease all further jostling and manouevering for political power. Let them exhibit statesmanship, let them once again seek the mandate of the people. And let the people decide,” he added in a statement.

And KEADILAN will do the same

Spiritual leader warns members against stirring up trouble
May 4, 09 2:49pm Malaysiakini.com
PAS spiritual leader Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat
has told party members not to create problems
by demanding to field its candidate for the Penanti
state seat by-election on May 31.

He said PAS must keep to the agreement made
with PKR, one of its partners in the opposition pact.

bukit selambau pas pkr anwar nik aziz ceramah 040409 09“If it’s a PKR area,
then it’s their right (to contest the seat).
We should go back to the agreement made.
As Muslims, we should keep our promise,
so we should not create problems now.

“Just like in Kelantan, we follow the agreement. When we give a seat to PKR, whether they win or lose, it’s their business,” he was quoted as saying by Bernama.

He was responding to the demand made by Penang PAS Youth chief Mohd Hafiz Mohd Nordin, that the party leadership consider fielding a PAS candidate in  Penanti after the seat fell vacant following the resignation of the incumbent assemblyperson and former Penang deputy chief minister I, Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin, 32, on April 16.

The Election Commission has fixed May 23 for the nomination of candidates and May 31 for polling.

Yesterday, PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang reiterated the party’s stand to support the candidate chosen by PKR, Mansor Othman, and that the decision was final.

Meanwhile, Barisan Nasional has not decided whether to contest in the Penanti by-election.

Only professional ulama for top posts

On another matter, Nik Aziz who is also Kelantan menteri besar, stressed that only professional ulama were qualified to be the president and deputy president of the Islamist party which would hold its elections in June.

pas posters in kota bharu 240208He said those offering themselves for the party’s top posts should do some soul searching whether they could fulfil the criteria set by the party.

“PAS is a party led by the ulama. In the early days, not many ulama were highly educated but now many are, so they are knowledgeable (in Islam) and they are also professionals,” he said.

Nik Aziz’s statement’s is in tune with the decision of the party’s ulama group for the president and deputy president posts be held by those with a formal and high level of education in Islam, to ensure the continuity of its policy of setting up an Islamic state.

The party elections are expected to see a keen contest, at least for the deputy president post. The incumbent, Nasharuddin Mat Isa, has confirmed that he would defend his post while party vice-presidents Husam Musa and Mohammad Sabu, Kedah PAS commissioner Azizan Abdul Razak and his Selangor counterpart Datuk Dr Hassan Ali are said may be challenging Nasharuddin.

On the unhappiness of some PAS members over the party leadership’s pro-opposition pact stance, Nik Aziz urged them to accept the leadership’s decision.

“I myself am pro-opposition pact. We had made
the decision at our party’s  assembly in Ipoh (last year).
This pact is new, only about a year old.

“A pact cannot stand strong always. Sometimes,
it collapses, just like Semangat 46, which died,”
he said.

Nizar: The Sultan and Me

‘Between the sultan and me’
Hafiz Yatim | Apr 21, 09 2:42pm malaysiakini.com
In the latest twist to the political saga in Perak,
state ruler Sultan Azlan Shah was accused of not
citing any provisions under the state constitution
when ordering Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin to resign as
menteri besar.

nizar jamaluddin perak mb court trial perak bn takeover zambry 180209 03This was
revealed in an affidavit filed by the ousted
menteri besar with the Kuala Lumpur High Court
registry yesterday.

The Pakatan Rakyat leader gave a detailed
account of what had transpired at the crucial
meeting with the ruler on Feb 4 and 5.

Mohd Nizar also denied and questioned the version
stated by Perak legal advisor Ahmad Kamal
Md Shahid in his affidavit. According to him,
Ahmad Kamal’s version did not constitute the whole truth.

In his affidavit to support the affidavit by
Barisan Nasional’s newly installed menteri besar
Zambry Abdul Kadir, Ahmad Kamal noted that
the ruler had cited the constitution when
ordering the ousted menteri besar to resign.

Mohd Nizar also revealed that during his
15-minute audience with the Sultan on Feb 5,
he had warned the ruler of the possible
consequences he could face in failing to dissolve
the state assembly.

According to the affidavit, Mohd Nizar said
the ordeal began on Feb 4, when he met
the ruler to seek his permission to dissolve
the assembly to end the deadlock following
the sudden disappearance of three assemblypersons
– Mohd Osman Jailu (Changkat Jering),
Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi (Behrang) and
Hee Yit Foong (Jelapang) – who had “resigned”.

However, the sultan told Mohd Nizar that he
would think about the request and recited a
passage from the Quran
Innallaha maa Sobirin
(God is with the person who is patient).

Mohd Nizar said he respected the decision
and during the meeting, he also submitted a
draft for the dissolution of the assembly for
the ruler’s approval.

However, the ousted menteri besar denied
making any suggestion to the ruler that the
assembly had lost confidence in him as the
leader of the executive and for that reason,
he wanted the dissolution of the assembly.

Several reasons cited

dr zambry abdul kadir new perak cm 110209 03
On Feb 13,
Mohd Nizar filed an application for a judicial review,
in challenging Zambry’s appointment and sought
several declarations pertaining to the interpretation
of Article 16 (6) of the Perak Constitution.

In his application, Mohd Nizar claimed to be
the rightful chief executive of the state on
the grounds that there was no dissolution of
the state legislature, no motion of no-confidence
was taken in the House against him and he did not
resign from the post.

He also issued a writ of quo warranto asking Zambry
to show cause by what authority he was occupying
the post of menteri besar.

Mohd Nizar said in his affidavit that the sultan had
informed him on Feb 5 that he was not acceding to
the request to dissolve the assembly.

The ousted menteri besar then requested for another
15-minute audience with the ruler and proceeded to
list out several reasons as to why the assembly
should be dissolved. These include:

malaysian law conference 291007 sultan azlan 21) He was applying for
the dissolution of the assembly based on his power
as the menteri besar.

2) Power should be returned to the people to choose
a lawful government.

3) If the assembly was dissolved, the people would
respect and improve and uplift the image of the royal
institution and they would also be thankful. This will
show that the sultan is just and non-partisan in letting
the people to decide. This was in accordance with the
concept of constitutional monarchy, and the democracy
principles that the state upholds.

4) The sultan should be thankful and accept God’s gift
in allowing him to celebrate his silver jubilee and to return
the peoples’ right to choose their own government.

5) Should the ruler not grant the dissolution, the people
would blame the palace and the sultan himself.

6) Where was BN’s morality in accepting Jamaluddin,
Mohd Osman and Hee, with two of them facing corruption
charges. What if Jamaluddin and Mohd Osman are found
guilty of corruption, what would happen next? If the
charges are withdrawn, the people would feel that it
was based on intervention by the palace or BN.

7) If the assembly is dissolved, the royalty and the palace
would be respected in the eyes of the public and international community. The question of immunity of the rulers as
brought about by (former premier) Dr Mahathir Mohamad
would also be negated.

8) Mohd Nizar cited a passage from Sultan Azlan Shah’s
book titled ‘Constitutional Monarchy, the Rule of Law
and Good Governance
‘ which had been given to him
by the ruler on his appointment as menteri besar. The passage
stated: “Under normal circumstances, it is taken for granted
that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong would not withhold his
consent to a request for the dissolution of the Parliament.
His role is purely formal.”

9) He also reminded the ruler of what happened in
countries like Indonesia, Philippines, Egypt and Iran
which once had a monarchy. However, once the monarchy
reneged and sided with a political party, it resulted in
their downfall.

Refused to resign

Mohd Nizar said he also told the sultan that during his
silver jubilee celebrations, the latter had emphasised
on good governance and pleaded with the ruler to
uphold it by dissolving the assembly.

He also reminded the ruler of the statutory letter signed
by the 31 Pakatan elected assemblypersons in support
of him being menteri besar which was ordered by the palace.

Following this, Mohd Nizar said: “The sultan slowly raised
his face and said he would not order the dissolution and
instead called for my resignation.”

Refusing to do so, the ousted menteri besar then replied:
“Ampun Tuanku, patik pohon sembah derhaka”
(Forgive me your highness, I humbly beg to disagree).

He then kissed the hand of the ruler, who left the room
without uttering a word.

In a related development, the sultan’s private secretary
Colonel Abdul Rahim Mohd Noor had also filed an affidavit
on April 8.

He stated that
while Mohd Nizar informed the sultan of
the resignations of Mohd Osman, Jamaluddin
and Hee, he had received letters from the trio
on the same day, disputing this.

On Feb 4, Abdul Rahim received letters from the three
claiming they had lost their confidence in Mohd Nizar and
indicating that they would leave the party to become
independents but support BN.

At about the same time, he also received a letter signed
by 27 BN elected representatives that they had also lost
their confidence in Mohd Nizar and that BN now commanded
the majority in the House.

The case has been slated for hearing at the Kuala Lumpur
High Court on Thursday.

KENYATAAN MEDIA
YB DATO’ SERI ANWAR IBRAHIM BERHUBUNG
KEMENANGAN DI BUKIT GANTANG, BUKIT SELAMBAU DAN BATANG AI
(Sidang Media 8 April, 11:30 pagi, Ibu Pejabat Parti Keadilan Rakyat)

Alhamdulillah, saya panjatkan rasa penuh kesyukuran ke hadrat Allah S.W.T di atas kemenangan pilihanraya kecil pada 7hb April 2009.

Syabas saya ucapkan kepada pengundi di Bukit Selambau, Bukit Gantang dan Batang Ai. Sokongan yang anda berikan menjadi bukti kekuatan rakyat untuk berani berhadapan dengan kekuasaan. Undi yang telah anda berikan untuk Pakatan Rakyat menjadi saksi akan kemahuan yang kuat menuntut Perubahan.

Tahniah saya ucapkan kepada para calon dan petugas Pakatan Rakyat kerana bekerja keras untuk memastikan kejayaan hari ini. Kemantapan kerjasama di antara Parti Keadilan Rakyat, Pas dan Dap semakin hari semakin utuh.

Kemenangan di Bukit Selambau dan Bukit Gantang serta sokongan pengundi Batang Ai membuktikan rakyat masih yakin terhadap kepimpinan Pakatan Rakyat untuk terus menerajui perjuangan menuntut Perubahan bagi mencipta Malaysia Baru yang adil dan saksama. Hari ini rakyat menghantar mesej yang jelas. Mereka mahukan Perubahan yang nyata, bukan sekadar janji politik untuk terus kekal berkuasa.

Kemenangan Dato’ Seri Nizar di Bukit Gantang merupakan satu referendum agar dikembalikan Kerajaan Perak yang sah. Rakyat menuntut agar Dewan Undangan Negeri dibubarkan dan pilihanraya diadakan di seluruh Negeri Perak.

Kepada pendokong Pakatan Rakyat di Batang Ai, kita berhasil mengungkapkan isu tanah adat dan peminggiran rakyat yang terjadi di Sarawak. Parti Keadilan Rakyat dan Pakatan Rakyat akan terus berjuang membawa Perubahan kepada rakyat Negeri Sarawak.

Sekali lagi kewibawaan proses pilihanraya menjadi pertikaian. Pengiraan awal yang tidak dilakukan di tempat pembuangan undi serta penggunaan helikopter untuk mengangkut membuka ruang kepada penipuan. Ini seharusnya menjadi pembakar semangat untuk terus bekerja keras membawa Perubahan, bukan sahaja di Batang Ai, tetapi juga di segenap pelusuk tanah air.

Walaupun berulang kali berhadapan dengan kekerasan, fitnah dan ugutan penguasa, ianya tidak akan menghambat kami dari menunaikan janji yang telah diberikan. Pakatan Rakyat akan terus mempertahankan keluhuran Perlembagaan dan berusaha melaksanakan agenda serta dasar untuk membantu sesiapa sahaja yang terpinggir tanpa berasaskan kaum. Pakatan Rakyat tidak akan sesekali mengkhianati amanah yang telah diberikan rakyat ini.

Saya menyeru rakyat Malaysia untuk tetap bersama-sama dengan agenda Perubahan dan Pakatan Rakyat. Sudah tiba masanya kita meniup nafas segar kepada demokrasi dan memperkukuhkan kembali kedaulatan undang-undang di negara ini.

ANWAR IBRAHIM
