PAS kemuka dua calon bukan Melayu

PAS bukan parti perkauman. Sekali lagi menjelang PRU ini PAS membuktikan hakikat itu apabila tampil mengemukakan dua orang calon bukan Melayu bagi bertanding di Kelantan dan Perak. Mereka adalah AJK PAS Pusat Datuk Anuar Tan yang akan mempertahankan kerusi DUN Kota Lama nya di Kelantan, manakala seorang algi calon adalah Dr. Khalil Idham Lim Abdullah di DUN Titi Serong, Perak.

Alangkah sejuk mata dan senang hati kita melihat betapa saudara-saudara kita dari kaum selain Melayu boleh sama-sama memegang panji-panji perjuangan, bagi menegakkan keadilan dan merobohkan kezaliman ini.

Mudah-mudahan dengan penampilan sahabat-sahabat kita ini akan membuka keinsafan dihati umat Islam yang lain dalam negara kita agar meninggalkan perjuangan yang sia-sia dan bersatu di bawah panji-panji kebenaran ini.

Perkembangan mutakhir ini menunjukkan bukan hanya masyarakat Islam dikalangan bukan Melayu malah masyarakat bukan Islam pun sudah turut sama menghadiri dan mengikuti program dan aktiviti PAS kerana mereka yakin perjuangannya. Tinggal lagi kita yang di kampong dan di bandar yang masih menafi dan menolaknya. Buanglah yang keruh ambil yang jernih.

Selangor: Mat Tyson and Zakaria Deros not on the list, so goodbye

by Chan Kok Leong
February 21, 2008
Former Selangor menteri besar and Umno Information Chief Muhammad Mohd Taib will not be reviving his political career in this elections after all.

It was widely speculated that Muhammad will make a political comeback in the March 8 polls, more than 10 years after he resigned as Menteri Besar in 1997 in the wake of a scandal. However, his name was not on the list revealed by Selangor Menteri Besar and State Barisan Nasional (BN) chairperson, Dr Mohd Khir Toyo today.

Muhammad was charged in the Brisbane Magistrate�s Court in 1997of currency regulation breaches involving more than 1.3 million Australian. He was later acquitted. Also absent from the Selangor list was controversial Port Klang state assemblyperson Zakaria Md Deros.

Rumours that Mohd Khir was expected to contest for a parliamentary seat also ended after his name was announced for the Sg Panjang state seat.

Toyo skips Selayang seat
Mohd Khir also failed to shed light on the mystery surrounding the political future of MCA Deputy President and Transport Minister Chan Kong Choy. When announcing the list, the Menteri Besar skipped the Selayang parliamentary seat held by Chan.

�Selayang is still being discussed. We hope to announce it at 4pm,� he said without elaborating during the press conference at the Selangor Umno headquarters in Shah Alam.

However, up until 5.50pm there was no announcement but the names of the MCA parliamentary candidates are expected to be known later this evening as they are currently attending a briefing at the party headquarters.

The Star today reported that Chan is expected to withdraw from contesting and will announce his decision today.Party insiders said that Chan met with Prime Minister and BN chairperson Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in Putrajaya this afternoon to discuss his candidacy.

Zakaria Deros replaced by daughter-in- law
Meanwhile, the Selangor Menteri Besar revealed that Zakaria has been replaced by his daughter-in- law Roselinda Abdul Jamil, who is the Klang Division Puteri Umno chief. Roselinda first came into the picture after she and Zakaria�s son Zainuri replaced the Klang strongman as councilors in the Klang Municipal Council in October 2006.

Zakaria withdrew his name from the list of councilors after news of him building a �palace� in Klang without approval, running an unlicensed eatery and not paying assessment for 13 years made headlines.

Commenting on Roselinda�s candidacy, Mohd Khir said: �Her relationship to Datuk Zed (Zakaria) does not arise at all. She�s a capable leader in her own right and we felt that she was the best candidate for Port Klang.�

MCA old faces dropped
The other highlight was the axing of several MCA old faces.

Incumbents Yap Pian Hon, Loh Seng Kok, Dr Wong Sai Hou and Lim Choon Kim were dropped from MCA�s state line-up.

Replacing Yap is Seri Kembangan state assembly person Hoh Hee Lee while Kelana Jaya will have Lee Hwa Beng (Subang Jaya state assemblyperson) . MCA Kelana Jaya Wanita chief Ong Chong Swen will be making her debut in replacement of Lee. New faces into the foray is former ntv7 newscaster Victor Gu (left) and Seah Kok Fah who will replace Wong and Lim in the Kg Tunku and Damansara Utama state seats respectively.

For MIC, there were no changes to names announced by party president S Samy Vellu yesterday.

In total, Selangor BN is fielding 34 new faces in the March 8 elections. Eight MPs and 26 state assemblypersons were dropped from its lineup.

Selangor has 22 parliamentary seats and 54 state seats. In the 2004 general election, Selangor lost two state seats to DAP - Sungai Pinang and Sekinchan.
