Zaid Ibrahim to Dr M: Make Ku Li PM if you really want to end corruption

East Coast's top contender for PM

In earnest, the scan for candidates begins. Talk is that several senior Umno leaders have been approached to possibly take over in the event that Najib Razak decides - on his own free will, of course - to resign as Prime Minister. 

One Sabah politician was said to have "contemplated momentarily" the tempting offer but in the end shook his head and said no. A well respected politician from down South has declined (and not for the first time). A vocal politician not far north of KL has turned down the invitation to treat. Wallahualam.

I don't think Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has been formally approached but former Umno & PKR strongman Zaid Ibrahim is strongly proposing the Kelantan prince's name to be our 7th Prime Minister. (We did anticipate this, though. Refer to my March 20 posting Ku Li for PM (A sequel 9 years in the making)In making his pitch for Ku Li, fellow Kelantanese Zaid, for once, agreed with Tun M about this country being "very corrupt" but didn't say who he meant by "leaders who keep close company with business tycoons and get free rides in their business jets"; read h e r e. 

“Corruption has flowed into our national bloodstream to such an extent that it will take generations—if at all—to cleanse the system. Our values must first change. We must first feel that it’s wrong to be corrupt. That’s why, if he truly wants to see some improvements in curbing the systemic corruption, Tun should endorse Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah as the one to take over as Prime Minister after Najib.” - Zaid Ibrahim

Loyalist Shafie
Ku Li, 78 last month, is relatively young (compared with Dr M, who celebrates his 90th this year). Muhyiddin Yassin, the DPM, turns 68 next week. Zahid Hamidi is just 62. Hishammuddin Hussein will only be 54 in August, and Shafie Afdal a youthful 58. Khairy Jamaluddin, who has managed to remain seemingly neutral in the spat between his boss and Dr M, turns 40 next January. I don't think they have approached anyone under 40 for the job but I may be wrong, of course ...

    Tak payahlah ku li.

    Kelantan pun dia tak blh pimpin.dgn baik. Negeri mundur pembangunan dan pemikiran. Malah jumud ...

    Naik ku li nanti semua keliling dia kroni kelantan. Dahlah tu pm dari negeri kalah sokmo. Cakap melayu pun tak betul.

    Nanti kita kena balik ke zaman dulu kala nak berpatek-patek bila cakap dgn mamanda bendahara. Takutkan orang n9 tersasul.

    Kita nak maju ke depan dan bukan berundur ke zaman dulu.kala raja ada absolute power.

    1MDB generated a revenue of RM4.26bil for the year ended March 31, 2014, but reported a loss of RM665mil as finance cost ballooned to RM2.4bil.

    As it is, 1MDB’s total US dollar-denominated borrowings stand at a staggering US$7.5bil, or RM27bil, at the current exchange rate.

    Based on these outstanding debts, 1MDB’s interest payment cost amounts to at least RM1.2bil a year over the next seven years.

    The worst choice bro .
    Remember the Bank Bumiputra fiasco ?

    What has he done in Kelantan ? For many decades he cant even move the ground .

    Gua musang , a reminder where everything goes wrong right in front of his eye .

    Agib Ngor is still capable . Give him a chance to show the result . He has done so much for so many people in so little time .


  9. Rumah Putih vs Rumah Melayu... in traditional malay, we always serve our guests with teh or kopi + biskut lutut.. seldom plain water or sky juice..he.. he.. srictly no bottoms up !

    Now the cat is out of the bag, what this Ismail guy is now revealing has always being what I have ben saying about this half breed.
    When he was the PM all he was interested to do was to ensure that BN remained reelected just so he can remain as PM. He even allowed foreign muslims to be admitted as long as Umno is reelected.
    Or should I say as long as he can remain as the PM the real interest of the Malays were never of no concern to him. Just look at all the policies he implemented during his tenure as PM. None of them was to have the Malays trained to be independent. He just wanted to ensure they are happy during his tenure as PM and have him reelected and remain as PM.
    He has never had a policy to have the Malays become independent and what Ismail guy is saying that he has reduced the Malay majority seats when he left the government.
    This is to ensure that BN will not be able to win enough of seats to form the government without him. It also reveals all the gerrymandering he was up to during his time.
    Another question I have for the half breed, who in his opinion is a good enough guy to be his deputy ? Also how many deputies has he appointed not to have been sacked by himself ? It can only confirm what kind of a man he is ?

  11. I think ku Li can handle the job perfectly as he was on the ministers post before. No scandal guy and smart too.
