A couple of years ago I had set up a wifi system around my house but it was down, I am thinking of making another one and I am going to name it "wifi republic".
I am going to re-organize my blogs too, now I am testing some templates, trying and testing them at this stage. I am trying to fully utilized the latest blogspot editor. Not doubt that they are better with many needs that are taken care of. However the new blogspot editor lack fluidity where we can used different blog templates for different categories of posts or entries.
However I had thought of this new format. Try anak matlesen to see the new format. The present PERWI is slightly messy as I had attempted to master the new blogspot editor. I think by doing that I had taken extra "memories".
I am still in the learning curve and I may not proceed with the present idea for I have to evaluate either to follow the existing system that blogspot new editor provide or do the necessary such as amending the html on the free template that I had obtained satisfactorily to get a system that I want.
Unless the paralysis in Perak is quickly resolved, the crisis could define the first 100 days in office of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and distract his administration's attention away from managing the slumping economy, analysts and politicians say.
Already, several senior politicians from Najib's own ruling Umno party are calling on the government to dissolve the state assembly and pave the way for fresh elections.[more]
Beliau yang memberitahu Suara Keadilan, VK Linggam yang telah mengemparkan negara dengan perbualan telefon mengenai ketirisan sistem kehakiman negara ini yelah menyebut nama Ramly Ali.
“Mengikut perbualan itu, VK Linggam telah menyebut nama tiga orang yang sepatutnya hendak dilantik sebagai hakim. Mereka adalah Heliliah Mohd Yusof, Ramly Ali dan Ahmad Maarof. Ketiga-tiga nama ini telah dilantik sebagai Hakim Mahkamah Tinggi oleh Yang Dipertuan Agung pada 1 February 2002,” katanya dalam kenyataan yang diterima oleh kami.[more]
& Tidak layak untuk menjalankan tugas sebagai menteri besar
Keputusan Hakim mahkamah rayuan, Ramly Ali yang membenarkan permohonan Zambry Kadir untuk mengantung perlaksanaan penghakiman Mahkamah Tinggi telah membelakangi prosuder perundangan.
Menurut peguam terkemuka Zulkifli Nordin, barisan peguam Zambry seharusnya memfailkan permohonan rayuan untuk menggantung deklarasi yang mengistiharkan Nizar Jamaluddin sebagai Menteri Besar Perak yang sah itu di Mahkamah Tinggi.
Zulkifli ketika membuat kenyataan berkata, beliau berasa hairan apabila hakim Ramly membicarakan permohonan Zambry tersebut dengan bersidang seorang diri sebagai Hakim Mahkamah Rayuan.[more]
On the same day, the court will hear the appeal against the high court ruling by Barisan Nasional’s (BN) Datuk Zambry Abd Kadir.
Nizar’s lawyers told The Malaysian Insider today that both parties have been informed of the decision.
The court of appeal had originally set next Monday as the day it would hear Nizar’s application to set aside the stay order.
It is unclear why the court has decided to hear both parties on the same day instead.[more]
V. Sivakumar, the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) appointed speaker of the Perak state assembly, will file a suit at the Ipoh High Court at 11.30am today against Datuk R. Ganesan, who is Barisan Nasional’s (BN) choice for speaker, which could determine who legitimately holds office as head of the state’s legislature.
The latest legal challenge will add to the state of confusion which has crippled the administration of Perak since BN’s power grab in February, and places more pressure on all parties to agree to fresh polls as a way out of the quagmire.
The speaker’s position is crucial as he controls assembly proceedings and for BN, it could mean convening an assembly to pass a vote of no-confidence in Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin, rendering the current court case over who is the legitimate mentri besar academic.[more]
The Umno president was quoted by Bernama as saying the Sultan of Perak had adopted the principles and spirit of democracy when appointing the mentri besar from PR last year and also BN this year, and should not be blamed for the political crisis in Perak currently.[more]
Bar Council president Ragunath Kesavan condemned Hishammuddin Hussein, IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan and OCPD Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid for their publicly castigating the lawyers without first checking the facts on what took place that night.[more]
Al Jazeera spoke to exiled Myanmar journalist Aung Zaw about the reasons for the charges.[ video Inside ]
PETALING JAYA: The political situation in Perak has reached a stage where it may be time to go back to the people, said Dewan Negara president Tan Sri Dr Abdul Hamid Pawanteh.
Dr Abdul Hamid, who has been observing the development in Perak with concern, said ad hoc actions on the part of individuals and political parties in Perak had not solved the impasse.
“Rightly or wrongly, the series of ad hoc actions have only made things more complex and convoluted. The best thing is for the powers-that-be to decide on the best course of action under the circumstances,” he said.[more]
Majlis Pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat
14 Mei 2009
Majlis Pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat telah mengadakan pertemuan di Pejabat PAS Jalan Raja Laut 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.[more]
Speaking to reporters after a meeting of the alliance at the PAS headquarters here today, the PR leaders said they were willing to meet Barisan Nasional (BN) with an “open mind.”
But they are waiting for Najib to make the first move.[more]
"It’s not good for the world to see the musical chairs in Perak where the MB is changing because of the decision of the courts," Dr Mahathir said.
When asked if the current impasse in Perak would affect the ruling Barisan Nasional's chances in the next elections, he said: "I hope people will have short memories."[more]
“Personally, I feel that a fresh state election will be the best way to resolve this stalemate, Let the rakyat decide and once and for all, we resolve this problem, which is not doing anybody any good,” said Dr Chua in an entry on his blog on Tuesday.
The former health minister also says that appealing the High Court ruling declaring Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin as the rightful mentri besar could be a long drawn-out affair.[more]
Ipoh Timur MP Lim Kit Siang told reporters yesterday after a public forum here that the Perak crisis was not localised to the state but a crisis that reflected on the nation's constitution and institutions.[more]
the killing of a Somali government soldier
near Mogadishu stadium, two days ago.
Witnesses said gunfire could be heard in the north of Mogadishu as fighters exchanged fire with government forces on Wednesday.
Mogadishu has seen intense fighting since the weekend as fighters from the al-Shabab group seek to topple Sharif Ahmed, the Somali president, and his government.[more]
Yesterday, Umno MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah and Dr Hsu Dar Ren, a central committee member of Gerakan, had also pushed for a state election in Perak as the best solution to the current imbroglio.
While Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has not called for the state assembly to be dissolved, he nevertheless appears to have distanced himself from what could be a political liability as perception mounts that Barisan Nasional (BN) is attempting to thwart the will of the people and cling to power. He said yesterday said that he will leave it up to Zambry to decide what to do.[ more ]

While his position as the lawful mentri besar (MB) of Perak is locked in a bitter wrangle in the Court of Appeal, there is no doubt as to his popularity with the public.
The cheers, catcalls, whistles and applause sounded far louder and longer when he walked up to the podium than for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim earlier when the Opposition Leader was opening the event.[more]
Lim said that based on the Mida report, Perak only recorded RM32 million in investment this year and lacked behind other states in securing investment, with Johor in first place with over RM1 billion in investments followed by Selangor with RM707 million and Penang with RM685 million.
This is most unfortunate. Matthias Chang had already written, time and time again, that the world is about to face a serious financial crisis. In fact, he said we are going to see a total collapse of the entire economic system not later than 2008 or 2009. Many rubbished him and some even said he is a madman. But then they said the same thing about many other geniuses over the many hundreds of years and we now know that these geniuses were just too advanced for their time and that is why they were perceived as madmen.
What is going on in Perak is not just about politics. It is also about sending the right signals to investors, in particular foreign investors. Do you know that foreigners no longer want to sign agreements in Malaysia? They would rather sign them in Singapore, a country they trust more than Malaysia. They just don’t trust Malaysian courts.
Even if they do sign the agreements in Malaysia, they will ask for an arbitration clause to be inserted in the agreement so that, in the event a dispute arises, they can avoid Malaysian courts and instead go for international arbitration.[more]
The rise in gold holdings is substantial. Though this figure represents a 76 percent increase and places China fifth in the list of gold holding nations, it is worth noting that this rise has been spread out over a period of six years.
Moreover, gold holdings represent only 1.5 percent of China's foreign exchange reserves in comparison with some European banks that hold 50 to 60 percent of their foreign exchange reserves as gold.
As a tidal wave of greenbacks looks set to come crashing into the US economy bringing searing inflation in its wake, Beijing has been steadily acquiring gold as a hedge against eventual dollar decline.[more]
Majlis Peguam berpendirian keputusan Mahkamah Rayuan itu bererti Zambry hanyalah penjaga kuasa kerajaan negeri atau “head of a caretaker government” sehingga rayuan penuh beliau didengar.
“Oleh itu Zambry tidak harus merancang untuk memanggil sidang khas Dewan Undangan Negeri tergempar kerana beliau tidak mempunyai kuasa berbuat demikian,” kata Naib Presiden Majlis Peguam Lim Chee Wee.[more]
If the PKFZ scandal had ballooned from RM1.8 billion in 2002 to RM12 billion in seven years under three MCA Ministers, it will be six times bigger than the first Mahathir mega financial scandal – RM2.5 billion BMF scandal!
RM12 billion of public funds is no chicken feed – it could build three Penang Bridges at RM4 billion each, 120 hospitals at RM100 million each, 1,200 schools at RM10 million each or 300,000 low-cost houses at RM40,000 each![more]
The second thing that has astonished most people; lawyers especially; is the one-man quorum that sat to hear Zambry’s application for a stay of execution. They would have expected a minimum quorum of three judges since this case is of great public interest. But only one man sat to hear Zambry’s application and it certainly does not give an impression that Nizar saw justice done yesterday in the Appeal Court.
That happened to me in the appeal that the government filed against my release from ISA detention in November last year. We asked for a quorum of seven judges. If we can’t get seven we would settle for five. But they refused both seven and five and agreed on only three. Why only three and whose decision was that? It was an administrative decision, meaning a court clerk somewhere decided that it should be three.[more]
State DAP chief Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham said that until the Court of Appeal made its decision, neither Dr Zambry nor Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin could legally carry out any mentri besar duty.
The former senior executive council member added that by resuming his duties Tuesday, Dr Zambry had caused the nation to think that he had already won his appeal against Monday’s High Court ruling.[more]
5:15pm Court of Appeal sets 9am, May 18, five days from now, to hear Nizar application to set aside stay of execution granted to Zambry on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, Zambry had his application for a stay heard and granted within mere hours.
2:20pm Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin files his application to set aside the Court of Appeal’s stay of execution. Application filed at Court of Appeal registry. He is believed to have asked for a three-member panel. Hearing date not yet fixed.
Zambry arrived at the state government building here at 9.16am in a black Toyota Harrier. He was greeted by sweaty reporters who had waited at the building's entrance under the blazing sun since 7am.
Oil prices rose more than a dollar today to a six-month high above US$59 (RM212.40) a barrel, boosted partly by a weaker dollar and gains on equity markets.
US crude was up US$1.14 a barrel at US$59.64 a barrel by 1200 GMT (8pm, Malaysian time). It earlier touched US$59.85 a barrel, its highest since November last year. It has risen nearly 20 per cent this month.
London Brent crude was up US$1.16 at US$58.64 a barrel.[more]
Pakatan Rakyat officials, who met EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof and senior EC officers today, also said they agreed that campaigning should stop at midnight on the eve of polling and "that such a prohibition should be enforced".[more]
At a press conference today, BN leaders suggested they had something up their sleeves in dealing with the political crisis in Perak.
"You'll see in a week," said former Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Tajol Rosli who was responding to queries by reporters on BN's next move now that the Court of Appeal have temporarily reinstated BN as the legitimate Perak government by granting a stay to Zambry.[more]
Former Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Tajol Rosli
• “Changing party is a normal thing in a parliamentary democracy. Winston Churchill changed parties twice. In the United States, a Republican Senator recently crossed over to become a Democrat Senator. It is not unconstitutional to do so and it is also not illegal.” — Datuk Seri Najib Razak
Err, sorry Mr Prime Minister, you are comparing apples and oranges here. It is an insult to speak of Winston Churchill and Arlen Specter in the same breath as Hee Yit Foong, Osman Jailu and Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi.[more]
Lawyers say that Zambry can now remain Mentri Besar until his appeal to against yesterday's High Court decision declaring Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin the rightful Mentri Besar, is decided.
Even then both parties, depending on who wins at the Court of Appeal, can appeal the decision to the Federal Court.[more]

While stating that the stay of execution raised more questions than answers, Nizar suggested that the only logical conclusion was that he was still mentri besar.
Barisan Nasional's (BN) Datuk Seri Zambry Abd Kadir had earlier claimed he was now the rightful MB after the court had granted him a stay pending his appeal on the decision by the High Court yesterday that Nizar was and is the MB.[more]
The Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) feels that the political crisis in Perak is not likely to be resolved unless power is given back to the people.
"Perhaps the time has come for the people of Perak to be given the opportunity to exercise their right to choose again the government of their choice, which is a basic human right," said Suhakam chairman Tan Sri Abu Talib Othman.[more]
It is not unprecedented for a single-judge Court of Appeal to hear an application for a stay of execution. It has happened before in Malaysia when time was of the essence and there was a shortage of appeal court judges on duty.
But it very rare for a single-judge Court of Appeal to grant a permanent stay of execution, say veteran lawyers. [more]
This is the decision of the Court on the application of the Applicant for Judicial Review. Leave was granted and the Applicant seeks the following reliefs as in enclosure 28.
There is a dispute on constitutional law between the Applicant and the Respondent. The Attorney General (AG) intervened in this case because of public interest and public importance. The Court granted the application and the AG was made an intervener. [more]
The incipient hope of start of restoration of public confidence in the independence of the judiciary sparked by the courageous and landmark judgment by Justice Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim in the Nizar vs Zambry case was cruelly crushed in less than 24 hours.[more]
1:15pm The Court of Appeal grants Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir his application for a stay of execution on the KL High Court ruling Monday that declared Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin the righful mentri besar of Perak. Essentially, it might mean Dr Zambry is mentri besar until his appeal is heard.
9:20am Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir files appeal against Kuala Lumpur High Court ruling yesterday that Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin is the valid Perak Mentri Besar. The appeal was filed at the KL High Court registry.[more]
On Feb 7, I wrote that a shameful scene was unfolding in Perak and maintained that despite the “takeover” of the state government by Barisan,
"according to the Constitution, Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin is Menteri Besar until he resigns of his own accord, or is removed by a vote of no-confidence in a formal sitting of the assembly. The Constitution makes no provision for his removal by any other means, including by petitions or instructions from any other authority."
Today, after three months and yet more shameful scenes, the High Court affirmed the same elementary principle, and held that Datuk Seri Nizar has been and remains the Menteri Besar. As Justice Abdul Aziz Abd Rahim put it: “He is, and was, at all material times the chief minister of Perak.” The High Court also ordered Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir and his executive officers to vacate their offices, and rejected an application from Zambry for a stay of proceedings pending an appeal.
The High Court has thereby affirmed the primacy of the Constitution.[more]
Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin told the hastily-called midnight press conference at his residence here that the suspension was not done out of revenge but was initiated in the interest of the people.
The acting State Secretary is state financial officer Datuk Jamaluddin Al Amini while Ahmad Kamal’s assistant Zulkarnain Hassan will be acting Perak Legal Adviser.[more]
