Unity Government

Forming A Unity Government?

The recent spate of events leading to the fallout of the ruling coalition has exacerbated concerns amongst the rakyat and stakeholders including political parties which left all the MPs in dire straits after the Prime Minister announces his resignation.

The questions that concerns us now is what if no single coalition commands a comfortable simple majority to govern Malaysia, how then would the Agong diffuse the deadlock?

Constitutionally, it had fallen upon the lap of Tuanku to determine who would be the next Prime Minister of his choice. To do that, it was understood that Tuanku has decided to interview each and every MP to determine the which coalition each of them belongs to so that Tuanku could do a headcount, then picks the prime minister from the coalition which enjoys the simple majority.

As of today, the Agong has granted an audience with the heads of the ruling coalition party as well as all the other opposition parties. The Agong has also summoned all the respective legitimate MPs to the palace for an interview.

Amidst all this, another interesting speculation has rife saying that the Agong is contemplating the possibility of forming an all inclusive quote unquote ’Unity Government” comprising MPs from both political divides to end this stalemate and to put their heads together for the betterment of Malaysia. Now is that possible? In a situation such as this, many concerns suddenly creeps up, a few glaring ones that seriously deserves some thoughts are:


What are the guidelines and standards used to choose the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, Cabinet Ministers with or without Portfolios, their Deputy Ministers as well as Political Secretaries?

a) By Meritocracy? Educational level

b) By Popularity? Those who command the Highest percentage of win in a Local or General Election? Likeability

c) By Fairness? Quota? Race? Religion? Age? Sex?

d) By Capability? Experience or Professionalism

e) By Reliability? Demonstrating Loyalty and Efficiency when tasked.

f) By Ability? Creative, Imaginative, Problem Solver.


The importance of opposition and backbenchers must not be discounted in a Unity Government since they are inclusive with no opposition in sight.

a) Who are they and how do they qualify?

Non Governmental Organisations

Professional Bodies such as Bar Council, PAM, Master Builders Association etc

Representatives from all the different Political Parties

b) What are the measures to ensure all of them stay effective and are not intimidated, threatened or bullied?

c) Does inclusiveness includes Independent candidates and are each of them eligible to be in the Cabinet?

d) What are the measures taken to ensure they carry out their duties without fear or fervour


a) Are we still adopting the Westminster model of governance?

b) Is the Election Commission still operating on the same mode and model?


a) As Standard Operating Procedure

b) As Code of Conduct

c) Policy Making


The process and procedures?

As solutions like this are thought about, the list will certainly expand as more and more irregularities float to the surface. It is very likely that hiccups will soon appear if the entire structure is not effectively thought out, analyzed, planned, with lots of trial run, before it is being enforced. Therefore it is highly anticipated that there should be more open engagements about the newly thought out.system and its efficiency, measured against its cost as compared to the older model we are so used to.

Then again, as tomorrow arrives, a whole new set of complications may again emerge considering the fickleness of each political party and their brewing itch and eagerness to control…

Party Hopping

“If the head doesn’t move, the tail won’t wag.”- A Chinese Saying.

Backward or forward, the events leading to the attempted coup captivates the rakyats imagination over the frail state we are in. Who is right or who is wrong and who are we to believe, all depends on what we know, learnt and experienced and how much of correct information we are input with. Therefore everyone has their own opinion. Our opinions depends on the information we are fed, right or wrong thus people can be engineered to believe in falsehoods. Social engineering can be as subtle a tool or it can be as forceful. People can be changed by aligning them with a school of thought daily or we can make them accept by duress. And they are best done when young.

What is more trying is how each one of us imagine our country to be. That varies from one person to the next. Thus, we must all seek to discern for ourselves as to what is that we want and expect balanced against what is good for the country as a whole so that we can all be of one mind to see our nation move forward. Then, we act on it.

Our actions are a consequence of much deliberation and our intentions are all adhered within the ambit of the laws set. Unless we want to become a bandit. For the fact that many rightful things can be compromised says much about how frail these regulations of ours are when they were drafted and approved to be tabled and passed as law. To the bandits, they explore loopholes to benefit themselves. The question now beckons… are we in the mood to make good these superficial laws without the hassle of getting motions upon motions passed in parliament? And do we have the time and energy to do so?

But can we become that morally correct individual when mass social engineering which began some sixty years ago stressed on the protection of one race by sidelining others and lucrative contracts went to their own pockets mobilising religion, royalty and its entitlement thereof as their shield to thwart criticism whose concessions include the massive awarding of government and government linked contracts some of which stretches till perpetuity, and the ample job opportunities created in the civil service allotted to everyone with or without the proper qualifications or merit?

If not for the current governments safety net assurance given to every civil servant that their job would be retained even if they vote against the former government, the failed state we are brimming on because of foreign debts, the 1mdb fiasco, the abolishment of tolls etc etc, we can rest assure that the old government would be here to stay till kingdom comes.

Then, we also saw political parties sleeping with strange bedfellows whose ideology never for once synchronises all for the sake of winning. But so it was done, and so it was for the Rakyat to choose between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Thus, did we really choose the deep blue sea? Was there even a journey to begin with when the signs say the ships were all docked except for one flying car and a few black shoes meant to insult our IQ and potholes on the road obviously too many to be filled in within a few years? Certainly there were ministries that out performs the rest in KPI but they were few and far in between.

Because of our failing economy, all eyes were on the new government to come out with fresh policies to rescue our economy. Till today. there was none that we could shout about. Instead we hear of consolidations as our ringgit slides against the greenback and retail stores becoming bleak. What was on the books were factors too shameful to announce, and a hole so deep one could dive in to eternity no one imagine it could be rescued or maintained in anyway except from surfing on the ‘no choice’ policies the old government adopted.

The question that beckons is who were responsible for the massive plunder and can fresh procedures halt the plundering ? And are these changes forthcoming?

There is always this misnomer about what powers could bring to a leader and with it, the entitlement believe that the government’s coffer automatically becomes your own personal bank account. One could stop thieves from plunging from the outside by hiring security guards and affixing CCTV’s etc but what is at stake here are the lackaidaisical SOP’s which compromises our government’s coffer. And what are the ways lucrative contracts already awarded or enforced be stopped, annulled or made void? Stricter measures are yet to be seen or announced in public one wonders the transparency.

Where the economy is concern, all eyes were on the Economics Minister and the International Trade & Industry Minister. They should both be given the golden turkey award for their failure to rejuvenate the economy. And another golden turkey for engineering this party hopping thing to save their own arses from getting burnt.

No right-minded leader would be so daring as to betray his own party and his own cabinet in favour of another not unless they are already on the conveyor belt heading for the chopping block because of some fresh developments perhaps. Any which way, actions like this only invites citizens revolt. A popular Chinese saying goes like this “If the head doesn’t move, the tail won’t wag.” Can this be applied to the current fiasco that is happening in front of our eyes right now? Or that we are all cataracted from the unholy truth by deceivers who are all masters of the game?

Today, some leaders created history albeit a big fiasco. What is imminent is that the Rakyat is in a quandary not helped by a plunging composite index. Should the nation sacrifice so much at the expense of these Gobloks whose strangest of mathematical equations bends on populist votes? At this moment, the facets of these bobbleheads are unclear but one thing clearly remains. The economy did not fair well, infighting becomes the agenda for those in power, and there are SOPs to be reviewed and potholes to be filled. Good governance will be our saving grace. But when is that going to happen?

I hope all the Rakyat is as clear as day who we should support and who we don’t. With or without an election brewing or despite the outcome. Too much politicking and everyone is fed-up. Party hoppers whoever they are should be expunged without a blink at the first opportunity. My two cents.

~Krisis Politik Negara Kita ~ Satu Puisi~

Puting berliung dah bergelora

Disana sini berhuru hara

Apakah kisah selepas bicara

Bola disepak tak sampai ke jaringnya

Izinkan saya berbicara

Yang pusing sebenarnya kepala saya

Sama seperti penyelap cermin kereta

Saat ke kanan saat ke kiri, akhir jatuhnya

Takkanlah rakyat mudah lupa

Diketepikan sebenarnya suara kita

Maruah dicabar salah siapanya

Jika nasib terkatak ditangan musuhnya

Termimpi mimpi terharu haru

Wahai politikus generasi baru

Malam dah tiba kiralah bulu

Besok sekali lagi permimpin terbaru

Dan terbaru…

Dan terbaru…

Socialist Republic

“We do not need a non partisan government unless there are backbenchers. But we can have a think tank whose duties are to help our pm solve our day to day problems, decide and determine its directions but the execution is performed by the various local councilors.

We already have Director generals in every single ministry to administrate and determine all the needs. And Ministries cannot stop functioning just because a few goons created a deadlock.

All official correspondences should be handled by a correspondence bureau which encrypts every incoming and outgoing correspondence. All official statements and criticism should be handled by the information bureau. No one is allowed to say anything to the media except for the pm or backbenchers.

But we do need a procurement bureau that handles all required needs sent in by Director generals from the military all the way down to schools. Their standard operating procedure must be 100% competent , transparent and accountable.

Director generals cannot endorse purchases. They can only write in to express their needs but through the approval of the councillors who is tasked to verify its accuracy. Councillors cannot endorse purchases also. They submit to the think tank and through regular meetings , the think tank assesses every single requirement before they are submitted to bank Negara. All procurements beit a box of pencils or one unit of air condition – all needs large or small goes through an open tender process handled by Bank Negara. Long term purchases are restricted to a six months term so as to give ample opportunities to other tenderers.

One single app accessible and enjoyed by everybody takes care of the entire process starting from the dg just like how we track our parcel shipments thus every stakeholder including the dg can monitor it’s progress all the way to when the purchase arrives!

Retire all the politicians and political leeches. Let them find their own way home so that we don’t need to encounter Orang Besars on the road and their entourage of outriders so that they won’t get comfortable and lazy creating disunity with their racial and religious distortion.

Retire also the censorship department.

Return all their Mercedes Benz’s and Bentley’s and large lodges provided by ministries then sell them for a profit. We no longer want to see institutional vehicles being used for personal camping or vacations.

For those not in the know, welcome to the Socialist Republic of Malaysia. In fifty years time, we’d be as rich as Singapore and China?
