A monkey like Fernandez


 “... let’s see who the candidates are. If they are going to nominate some monkeys, we will reject.” - Derek Fernandez, MBPJ councillor, on the next Mayor of Petaling Jaya

I don't know who Derek Fernandez is trying to attack with his remarks - the Federal government run by his political foes or the Malaysian Civil Service - but I know it's uncalled for. I also know there are just too many monkeys like him around. Orang Melayu panggil perangai macam ni kurang ajar.

Read Fernandez on Fernandez in the Malay Mail:


PJ mayor ‘promoted’, says Ali Hamsa

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2012 - 17:42

Location: 
PETALING JAYA

THE transfer of Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) Mayor Datuk Mohamad Roslan Sakiman to the State Secretariat is a promotion. 
Chief Secretary to the government Datuk Seri Ali Hamsa attempted to clear the air over the controversial transfer saying that it was not a lateral transfer as suggested by certain parties.
“We are promoting him to a higher position. He will head the State Economic Planning Unit (UPEN),” Ali told The Malay Mail.
“We had spoken to the mayor and he feels the move to the State will be good for him as it is a promotion with more benefits,” Ali said, adding that several candidates had been identified to take over from Mohamad Roslan, who is scheduled to be appointed deputy state secretary (development) on Dec 1.
Councillor Derek Fernandez said while MBPJ was against a lateral move by the Public Services Department (PSD), it would have no objection if it was a promotion that would benefit Mohamad Roslan.
However, he insisted that the choice of mayor, including Mohamad Roslan’s transfer must be on the endorsement of the state. 
“If what the chief secretary said is true, then it is good for Mohamad Roslan. 
“If he is moving up to a Superscale B (from the present Superscale C) then it is good for him,” he said. 
However, he said with regards to the federal authorities’ list of successors, “let’s see who the candidates are. If they are going to nominate some monkeys, we will reject.” 
According to Fernandez, the post of mayor is an open one under the Local Government Act (LGA 1976) and the state government is allowed to appoint its own candidate. 
He said MBPJ would also issue a letter to the PSD to offer it the opportunity to jointly petition the court to determine the law as to the appointment of federal officers. 
MBPJ's full board meeting had on Nov 2 decided to seek a judicial review to prevent Mohamad Roslan's appointment to the State. 
Fernandez said the council would seek answers as to whether it is correct procedure for the PSD to issue a lateral transfer to a sitting mayor who is a Superscale C officer in the absence of a sitting director-general of the PSD. 
"We want to know if the deputy has such power to transfer and if so under who's instructions," he said. 
Mohamad Roslan's transfer letter dated Sept 27 was signed by PSD deputy director-general Datuk Faridah Mohd Ali. 
It was sent via the office of State Secretary Datuk Mohd Khusrin Nawawi, whom Mohd Roslan was supposed to report to. 
He was originally given only three days to report for duty, creating a storm in MBPJ as the city council would have been left without a mayor. At the same time, the deputy mayor Datuk Puasa Taib was on extended sick leave. 
Mohamad Roslan will now take up his new post on Dec 1 — that too, said Fernandez if there is an acceptable replacement. 
"Otherwise the State will source its own candidate."

If Derek Fernandez's ancestors have not been shanghaihed into slavery by the British he would still be languishing some where in the Indian sub-continent wearing a dirty sarong chewing sireh and beetel nut wondering how to enter Malaysia illegally, yes these ingrates are truly showing their true racial colour!

Stick to the main issue Rocky.
Its not about monkeys.

If you still want to do it, be fair lah.

Ibrahim Ali also rattles a lot, but it never caught your attention.

The Home Minister recently said - do not mix religion with politics, but see what his cousin did in Batu Caves yesterday?

I see a 'monkey trait' in that too but that is not the issue. The main joke was BN approving a project in 2007and now saying that it will cancel it if it comes to power in 2013.

You are getting more worried/serious of late, especially with the changes at NST, so much so you cannot see the humour aspects in what politicians from both sides of the divide do/say.

You still can, if you remain neutral, but that word is now alien to you.

All in the name of 'cari makan'.

Rocky,
I totally agree with Fernandez comment.Najib as PM prefer to feed the monkey than feed anak sendiri.
Look at the Security commision new chief a Singh.Tak ada Melayu yang layak ka.

look at KSU Trade,a Portugis Lady.Tak ada Melayu layak ke.
Look at KSU Ministry of finance,India Islam.Tak ada Melayu ka.

So Fernandez,I think Najib will send another Monkey to be the new Mayor.

Recently the slightest rebuke from a non Malay invites comments about how patient and tolerant Malays are and what ingrates the non malays are Look here they may be non Malays but they are not non Malaysians. They are all citizens. This country is what it is today because of people of all races.

Salam Dato'
Politician from both sides lack finesse in their arguments/counter arguments. Both sides are more interested in Bashing/thrashing/twisting rather than doing the actual work.

Parameswara, its ok to disagree but we should not resort to calling individual monkeys. Would you tolerate if people were to call you monkey?

Pasquale - U have shown ur true racist colour. The British enslaved ur ancestors based on their skin colour, and now you enslave ur own mind with ur racist attitude. If you had commented bout what the issue is, it would have been fine. But u had to bring in some race matters. Ppl like u ensure Malaysia remains enslaved by racism.

Rocky,
Monkeys means clowns or more or less idiots sitting as Mayor and dunno how to do a job ..Half baked chekai civil servants sitting on too big a chair.!
Maybe you are slighted because it happens most civil officers happens to be melayus.We could'nt care less if its a melayu ,chin or india...if he does the job good and fair ,but its majority malays is'nt sitting in top gun post? Well PJ has almost all clowns as mayor for a long time.Period!

bru said...

Param,

Being neutral has nothing to do with the issue at hand. And the issue is about this dude's attitude. Derek Fernandez is not just arrogant, he's saying that he's got muscles and he will flex those muscles just to show he's boss. We don't have to like this behavior. Pakatan Rakyat was a modest outfit before 2008, you and I know it.

Let him defend himself lah Param ... you don't have to stoop that low to cari makan yourself ..

I don't know what's the deal with the transfer. It just a promotion for God's sake. Selangor actually is Federated Malay state, together with Pahang, Perak and Negeri Sembilan where the appointments of its civil servants are done by Public Services Commission(PSC). And the postings and transfers of those who have been appointed by PSC are done by Public Services Department (PSD). The PSC have a power to appoint where else the PSD have a power to move people around. Unlike Johor, Terengganu, Kelantan, and Kedah, the appointment and transfer of state civil servants over there is wholly under the purview of their own state services commission, i.e. the state government. The bottom line here is the appointments and transfers of officials in Federated Malay states are under the juridiction of the federal government. It is the federal government who pay their salaries, not the state government. The state government has not right to meddle in the affairs of PSD the way the federal government have no right to interfere in the affairs of the Unfederated Malay states. I'm not sure how Derek and his friends wanted to challenge that under Local Government Act but the distinction is clear. if they want to go ahead then be it. And then they also look to challenge wether the deputy acting as Director General has a power over matters regarding transfer. It shows that they themselves are not sure on what ground they should challenge. CAnd calling the civil servants as monkeys won't help your cause either. These are the people who had put you and your people to power 4 years ago. Even if you have low opinion on them but to brand them as monkeys is just unthinkable. Never underestime the power they have. FYI, some of the D.O.s have a power to sway voters in their area. oh, Derek you're still novice in politics..

Dear Dato,

You are no angel either.
Look back at your outbursts.

Quite a number of people have been branded as 'morons' by you.

If you can do such judgemental branding, no harm for another to talk about monkeys.

Kalau nak tegur/nasihat orang, tunjuk teladan dulu Dato.

Jeremy and mss, if you miss the point, too bad lah.

Lets see if more 'morons' are identified in this blog!

Surprisingly the 'morons' are always on the other side of the divide. Dato can see the ants there, but not the elephants on the side where he is! Try convince us that the ones on this side are angels!

Whatever the case may be, Dato is allowing freedom of speech/expression in his blog, and that is something we all enjoy and cherish.

Agree with Anom 8:22. The appointment of a mayor in Selangor is bound to Local Government Act 1976. Really? Then the previous appointments of Datuk Mohamad Roslan as mayor of MBPJ and Datuk Zainal Abidin of MPS and the other guys before them over there could be considered as unlawful too because they were there in the first place because of PSD directives. The PSD had put them there but they can’t remove them elsewhere. How come?

Just like to find this opportunity to thank BN

Thank you for all the good things you have done for us since Merdeka.

Our country is now famous with top of the world things like KLCC, F1, long bridge, sports kings and queens.

Thank you

Also cheap/free study fee from schools right up to varsities.
Cheap loans, notwithstanding conservative stance in monetary policies.

Cheap petrol at RMM1.90 per litre.
Cheap cars too.

and also thank you in your effort to raise up the income level. An uphill task no doubt but pls continue.

Everybody also seems loaded with cash now. FDs, unit trust, stock&shares and investment what nots are top now. Willing even to spend hundreds for a simple dinner. Jams in the city during shopping time. Jams in the highways to kampungs on weekends. Kampung people also loaded leh..Felda

There is so much proof that BN has served us rakyat well.We are the judge the jury and executioner by just a vote.
Keep it up.
Choose Malaysia, Choose BN

Dear Ben Zahrain,

Apology NOT accepted. The fact is he used the word MONKEY in the interview with The Malay Mail to refer to some civil servants. Despite clarifying his uncalled-for, derogatory stereotyping of civil servants statement, which forms the crux of Ceupacs criticism, he went to the extent of threathening the body with legal action.

'Saya tidak langsung menyatakan pegawai kerajaan monyet seperti didakwa oleh Cuepacs. Ini kenyataan salah.'

Excuse me, I read the Malay Mail article and he did refer some civil servants as MONKEYS.

What are you trying to spin saudara Ben?

Thank you.

Pada saya Derek tidak berhati besar dalam isu ni. Dia sepatutnya menarik perkataannya. Laporan Malay Mail sudah jelas tapi dia masih nak tegakkan benang yang basah. Semua ini kerana ego Derek sendiri. Dia patut mengambil iktibar terhadap keceluparannya itu.
