R.A.H.M.A.N. Prophesy: Najib may NOT be the 6th Prime Minister

R.A.H.M.A.N. Prophesy: Najib may NOT be the 6th Prime Minister

 

The R.A.H.M.A.N. prophesy had held true for 39 years since the elevation of Tun Abdul Razak as the second Prime Minister in September 1970.
It has accurately predicted four prime ministers after the first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman.







The RAHMAN prophesy is reaching its last leg of its prediction with the letter "N" .
There is no reason why the RAHMAN prophesy would not hold true for its last prediction (the last letter “N” of RAHMAN) for the 6th Prime Minister of Malaysia.
If the RAHMAN prophesy is to hold true for the last letter "N" for RAHMAN, then Najib may NOT be the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

According to RAHMAN prophetic tradition, all future prime ministers of Malaysia AFTER the first prime minister will have the FIRST letter in their names following the name of the first Prime Minister, ie RAHMAN. What that means is that the RAHMAN prophesy will start with the SECOND Prime Minister until the 6th Prime Minister.

By convention, not by constitution, the UMNO President becomes the Prime Minister and the UMNO Deputy President becomes the Deputy Prime Minister. Prior to 1981, deputy president of UMNO is nominated by the sitting President from amongst the Vice Presidents of UMNO.

The following historical facts were evidenced that the RAHMAN prophesy played a hand in the choice of the last four prime ministers.

  1. Tunku Abdul Rahman was the first Prime Minister from 1957 to 1970. Abdul Razak was his deputy. Tunku Abdul Rahman was forced out of UMNO and had to resign from office as a result of a concerted push by the UMNO “young turks” led by his deputy, Abdul Razak after the May 13 1969 riot. There was bad blood and much acrimony in the departure of Tunku Abdul Rahman

  2. The FIRST fulfillment of RAHMAN prophesy “A” , was achieved in September 1970 with the appointment of Abdul Razak as the second Prime Minister.
  3. As President of UMNO, Abdul Razak appointed Ismail Abdul Rahman as deputy Prime Minister. If Ismail were to succeed Tun Razak as prime minister, the RAHMAN prophesy would have collapsed after the second prime minister. As fate would have it, (Tun) Ismail Abdul Rahman died in office prematurely in 1973 .

  4. . Abdul Razak had then to choose from amongst the UMNO Vice Presidents to be his deputy. By 1973, Abdul Gaffar Baba had been a Vice President of UMNO for almost 11 years. Hussein Onn was elected as UMNO Vice President only a year earlier in 1972 after he won a parliamentary seat in Johore in 1970.

  5. Instead of picking a more senior vice president, Abdul Razak picked the recently elected Vice President as his deputy. Hussein Onn became Deputy Prime Minister in August 1973.

  6. In the 1974 general election, both Abdul Razak and Hussein Onn were returned as Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister.

  7. At the 1975 UMNO General Assembly: Mahathir and Tengku Razaleigh were elected for the first time as UMNO Vice Presidents. Incumbent Abdul Ghaffar Baba was re-elected. Of the three Vice Presidents , Mahathir Mohamad won with the LEAST number of votes compared to the other two.

  8. Then fate struck again when (Tun) Abdul Razak died in office in January 1976.

  9. The SECOND fulfillment of the RAHMAN prophesy ( “H”) was achieved when Hussein Onn assumed the Prime Ministership on 14 January 1976.
  10. Hussein Onn had to pick a Deputy Prime Minister. He had wanted to appoint the then powerful Home Minister and Razak-confidante Tan Sri Ghazalie Shafie as Deputy Prime Minister, but he was not an UMNO Vice President.

  11. The three incumbent UMNO Vice Presidents, Abdul Ghafar Baba, Tengku Razaleigh and Mahathir demanded that the Deputy Prime Minister be picked from one of the three UMNO Vice Presidents : Abdul Ghaffar Baba Tengku Razaleigh, and Mahathir Mohammad.

  12. With pressure from the three Vice Presidents, Hussein Onn decided to pick the vice-president who won with the LEAST number of votes at the UMNO General Assembly, i.e. Mahathir Mohamad. According to Anthony S.K. Shome in his book Malay Political Leadership, Hussein Onn chose Mahathir “because, it is said, he wanted someone with education and maturity. Hussein’s choice of Mahathir sparked off a crisis within UMNO that was to have wide repercussions for a long time in the party. Both Razaleigh and Ghaffar Baba were deeply disappointed and the latter subsequently refused to serve in the Cabinet under any capacity.”

  13. At the 1978 general election, both Hussein Onn and Mahathir Mohamad were returned as Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister

  14. Fate decided again that Hussein Onn had to leave office prematurely for ill-health in 1981.

  15. The THIRD fulfillment of the RAHMAN prophesy (“M” ) was achieved in July 1981 when Mahathir Mohamad became Prime Minister.
  16. Mahathir Mohamad served as Prime Minister from 1981 until 2003, over 5 general elections. When he took office, he declared the UMNO Deputy President open for election ie he was not supporting any candidate. Tengku Razaleigh and Musa Hitam fought it out. Musa Hitam won and eventually became the Deputy Prime Minister.

  17. In 1986, there was a fall-out between Mahathir and Musa Hitam resulting in Musa Hitam leaving the cabinet . Abdul Ghaffar Baba was appointed and became the Deputy Prime Minister.

  18. In 1987, Tengku Razeleigh challenged Mahathir for the UMNO Presidency. If Tengku Razaleigh had won, he would have been the successor to Mahathir. The RAHMAN prophesy would have collapsed by then. It was not to be.

  19. Mahathir won the election instead but the court ruled that UMNO was illegal. Mahathir re-registered UMNO as UMNO Baru and continued to be the President of UMNO Baru and thus as Prime Minister. Abdul Ghaffar Baba continued to be the Deputy Prime Minister until 1993.

  20. In 1993 UMNO election, Anwar Ibrahim challenged Ghaffar Baba for the Deputy Presidency. Anwar Ibrahim won the UMNO Deputy Presidency and beacme the new Deputy Prime Minister.

  21. In 1998, Mahathir sacked Anwar Ibrahim as Deputy Prime Minister and expelled him from UMNO. He was subsequently charged in court under controversial circumstances for sodomy and then jailed. The position of the Deputy Prime Minister was left vacant for about 6 months.

  22. In 1999, Ahmad Abdullah Badawi was named the Deputy Prime Minister.

  23. The FOURTH fulfillment of the RAHMAN prophesy (“A”) was achieved in October 2003 when Ahmad Abdullah Badawi assumed the Prime Ministership.

  24. The Deputy Prime Minister under Ahmad Abdullah Badawi is Mohd Najib Abdul Razak, commonly called in the media as “ Najib”.








Fulfillment of the last letter “N under the RAHMAN Prophesy

For the RAHMAN prophesy to be fulfilled completely, the successor to Ahmad Abdullah Badawi has to have “N” ad his first letter in his name.

The current Deputy Prime Minister’s name is Mohd Najib Abdul Razak ie his first letter is “M”. By extension of that fact, and for the RAHMAN prophesy to hold true as it did for the last 39 years, Najib will NOT be the next Prime Minister, even if he had been elected as the President of UMNO.

The fact that Mohd Najib had been commonly called as simply Najib , thus assuming “N” as his first letter in his name does not count in the RAHMAN prophesy. For instance, Najib’s father was commonly referred to as Tun Razak. If the RAHMAN prophesy had allowed “R” to be the first letter of the name to be considered, then the RAHMAN predicted would have collapsed in 1970 when Tun Razak assumed office of the Prime Minister.

All other Deputy Prime Ministers ( with the exception of Abdul Ghaffar Baba and Anwar Ibrahim), who did not meet the conditions of the RAHMAN prophesy, FAILED to become the next Prime Minister.

Mohd Najib Abdul Razak

The current Prime Minister, Ahmad Abdullah Badawi was expected to step down as President of UMNO following the completion of the 2009 UMNO General Assembly on 27th March 2009.

Malaysians are expecting Mohd Najib to be the next President of UMNO and by convention, he will be installed as the 6th Prime Minister.

If Mohd Najib does succeed Ahmad Abdullah Badawi as the 6th Prime Minister, then it will be the FIRST time in 39 years that the RAHMAN prophesy has failed to predict the last (6th) Prime Minister with the name starting with the letter “N” in RAHMAN.

However, as noted by Tengku Razaleigh, Dr Mahathir and other political pundits, Mohd Najib’s ascension as President of UMNO does not constitutionally require that he will be installed as the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

The following events may still cause the RAHMAN prophesy to hold true after the 2009 UMNO General Assembly:
a) Although Mohd Najib becomes the President of UMNO, Ahmad Abdullah Badawi may wish to continue to be the Prime Minister of Malaysia as provided for in the constitution until he is given a vote of no confidence in Parliament. The RAHMAN prophesy remains intact. If this is the case, this will be the first time that a President of UMNO is not automatically made the Prime Minister of Malaysia.


b) The Yang DiPertuan Agung has the absolute discretion not to appoint Mohd Najib as the Prime Minister and he would either request Ahmad Abdullah Badawi to continue as Prime Minister until the next general election or the Agong may recall Parliament to decide on whether Mohd Najib or somebody else will be the Prime Minister.
As it stands, the RAHMAN prophesy says Mohd Najib Abdul Razak will not be the 6th Prime Minister, given it had stood the test of time of 39 years over 4 Prime Ministers and 9 Deputy Prime Ministers.

Malaysians will know in the days and weeks to come whether the RAHMAN prophesy will collapse without fulfilling the last letter “N”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did Najib do it?


Updates 17/6/09:
1. Karpal considers keris issue closed (Malay Mail, June 17)
2. Azmi Anshar: Karpal's poser an Urban Legend (NST, June 17)

Original Posting:



For Internet's more gullible: A "photoshopped" pic of the PM in Malaysia Today recently, complete with a caption that does not say the picture is computer-generated. Inset (which is mine, with Tony Yew's help) is the original picture, of Hishammuddin Hussein at a recent Umno General Assembly.

Karpal's Question: Did Najib, in 1987, wave a keris and challenged the Chinese community?


The more gullible among Malaysia's Netizens believed that Najib did. That the PM, who was acting Umno Youth leader then, had uttered the words "soak the keris in (Malaysian) Chinese blood" or something to that effect.

No proof has ever been produced by anyone that Najib had waved the keris and said those words but yesterday YB Karpal Singh, whose son Gobind is serving a one-year ban from Parliament for calling Najib "murderer" in the Dewan,


Excerpts from Najib illuminates 1Malaysia, denies keris challenge [NST, June 16]:-

In his question, Karpal alleged that Najib, during a rally in the run-up to the 1987 Operasi Lallang, had waved a keris in challenge to the Chinese community.

“If it was true, are you prepared to ask for forgiveness from the Chinese community?” Karpal demanded.

The allegation did nothing to dampen Najib’s mood.

“The incident did not take place. I have never said that. The one who should apologise is the YB concerned, not me,” he said.

p.s. A fellow blogger, who was convinced that Najib had waved the keris and said those words in 1987 (even though he wasn't there), recently told me that I should prove that Najib DID NOT do it. I told him that if I would if I had the resources that the NST or Malay Mail had.

Last Monday, in Parliament, Karpal asked Najib if he had raised a keris at an UMNO youth rally in Kampung Baru in 1987 and uttered racist words to the effect that the blood of the Chinese would be spilled.
Najib flatly denied making such utterances.
The next day, in response to Najib’s denial, RPK published a post entitled ‘In response to Najib’s denial in Parliament yesterday’ in which Pete reproduced a press release by YB Lim Kit Siang dated 27th April, 2007.
In that press release, YB Lim alluded to a Government White Paper entitled “Towards Preserving National Security” wherein the goverment had reported that, quoting YB Lim, ” in an Umno Youth rally led by Najib on 17th October 1987, banners bearing strong words were displayed, including one which said: “SOAK IT (KRIS) WITH CHINESE BLOOD” ‘.
Yesterday, I got my hands on that White Paper.
It’s a damning document of the messages of hate that emerged from that rally 22 years ago.
I also got my hands on reports on 18th October, 1987 of that rally that appeared in our then still largely independent MSM.
Malaysiakini reported yesterday that Anwar had said, “I was not at the rally, I was the Umno vice-president then… it was organised by Umno Youth and by Najib, (so) I have to just take Najib’s assurance and denial in Parliament,” and “…I am not in the position to discuss or accuse Najib, because I am not aware of what he had said,” and “To be fair, my only statement is that, Najib has denied… but documents and banners are available (and) there were very extreme positions, racist and extreme demands and statement (on them),” and “it is best for Najib to make it clear, if there were excessive (statements) made… and admit it, so that we can move on”.
Let me just say now that what Anwar is reported to have said is amply supported by the White Paper and the news reports of 18th October, 1987.
Yesterday, the Malay Mail reported Karpal as now saying that “I wanted to know if he said it, and he gave his answer, let’s just leave it as it is, the matter should not go on further,”
I disagree with YB Karpal.
Why should we leave it as it is? Why should we not pursue this matter any further?
Don’t we have the right to know the kind of man who purports to lead this nation forward?

Was Najib at the UMNO youth rally on 17th October 1987?
Yes.
Was he leading that rally?
He was then acting UMNO youth chief. I’d say yes.
Did he raise the keris and issue words to the effect that the blood of the Chinese would be spilled?
Don’t know.
Even if he did not, was he not leading  a rally that had on display enough paraphanelia that spelt out the threat to spill blood of a particluar segment of our Malaysian community without the need for Najib or anyone else to vocalise it or brandish weapons?
Is this not enough to make his denial in Parliament last Monday somewhat hollow? Deceitful?

Again, that government White Paper and the 1987 news reports bear this out.
Now this man wants us to swallow his 1Malaysia hook, line and sinker .
Does he not first owe this nation an explanation?
Does he not first owe us all an unqualified apology?

So what was that about the keris and Chinese blood? 
























In 1987, Najib was selected as the acting head of the Movement of UMNO Youth by Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim after Anwar was asked to contest the post of UMNO Vice President. Following mounting ethnic tensions anti-Chinese sentiments were expressed at a UMNO Youth rally held in Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur the same year where Najib spoke. Rising tensions soon lead to fears of ethnic violence and eventually resulted in a security operation known as Operasi Lalang, that included numerous administrative detentions.

Malaysian PM Najib Razak Is a Pathological Liar With Selective Amnesia

The Umno Youth illegal Demonstration at the TPCA Stadium in 1987 where current Malaysian PM Najib Razak threatened to bathe the Keris with Chinese blood.

By Admin

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has proven to the World that he is a FIRST CLASS HYPOCRITE and a FIRST CLASS LIAR when he said that Bn/Umno does not condone street rallies. Well Mr. Pink Lips,wasn't it you who led an Umno Youth demonstration at the TPCA Stadium at uttered your infamous words " to bathe the Keris (Malay dagger) with Chinese blood"? This is the proof from Wikipedia:
United Malays National Organisation – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Full Article) http://hrforall.wordpress.com/operasi-lalang/







The Youth wing in particular is known for what some call radical and extremist defense of ketuanan Melayu; one opposition journalist has contended that all UMNO Youth leaders were “perceived as pro-Malay, anti-Chinese in their days”.

One oft-cited instance of this is a rally held by UMNO Youth shortly before Ops Lallang in 1987, where future Deputy Prime Minister and then UMNO Youth Chief Najib Razak threatened to bathe a keris (dagger) with Chinese blood.

At the same rally, banners were hoisted carrying phrases such as “revoke the citizenship of those who opposed the Malay rulers”, “May 13 has begun” (referring to the May 13 racial riots in 1969), and “soak it (the keris) with Chinese blood”.
What about Umno Youth under Khairy Jamaluddin wanting to march as well and also Umno's equally evil twin Perkasa doing the same? You Najib Razak just like the rest of you scums in BN are pathological liars who suffer from selective amnesia.

Ops Lalang: Why NST may harm Najib pretty badly

This is today's NST frontpage, reminding people of the 19th Anniversary of Operation Lalang to juxtapose Mahathir's claim that Malaysia, now under the Abdullah administration, has been plunged into a climate of fear, aka Police State.





NST_20061028_OpsLalang.jpg
Ops Lalang 1987 -- a Police operation that scoured 106 Opposition leaders, academics, NGO activists and dissidents to mainstream politics under the Internal Security Act (ISA), coupled with the suspension of several newspapers including The Star, Sin Chew and the defunct Watan -- is a double-edge sword that may hurt current Deputy Prime Minister, Najib Abdul Razak, very badly.
Najib was then the head of Pemuda Umno which, history testifies, had played a critical role that culminated in Ops Lalang. Here's an insertion of the wikipedia that points to that ugly chapter in Malaysian history:

By reminding Malaysians of Ops Lalang wihout giving it a full historical context at a time when Najib is poised to take over from Abdullah, is The NST aiming at the No. 2 for some reasons that we do not know?
Haniff Omar the IGP
If you remember well, Ops Lalang was a police action executed at the command of the then Inspector General of Police (IGP), Haniff Omar. The Royal Malaysian Police, the independent law enforcement authority, had to effect a crackdown in order to prevent an imminent racial blood-shed perpetrated by racist politicians from happening. For that, we Malaysians are eternally grateful.
To be fair, let me hasten to put on record that many ISA internees, historians and researchers have concurred that the Executive, then under the Mahathir administration, played an influential role in allowing the course of police action to take place the way it did 19 years years ago to the date.
Since The NST feels it convenient to invoke Ops Lalang to suit the occassion, let's now take a look at the cause and effect of the chronicled events that developed into Ops Lalang, lest you get diverted by The NST's latest spin, which highlighted only the end result -- the Crack Down -- anr not the why and how it happened.
In 1987, as UMNO Youth Chief, Najib threatened to bathe a keris (dagger) in Chinese blood shortly before the government launched a crackdown on extremist elements termed Operation Lalang. At the same rally, banners were hoisted carrying phrases such as "revoke the citizenship of those who opposed the Malay rulers", "May 13 has begun" (referring to the May 13 racial riots in 1969), and "soak it (the keris) with Chinese blood".
Someone had inserted into the wikipedia relevant to the 1987 incident, and as a working person who had experienced the build up through the mass media, I have little doubt to dispute its accuracy. Quote from the wiki:
The 1987 Ops Lalang was bad, but the cause that precipitated it was even worse -- Pemuda Umno and chauvinists on the opposing side of political divide had all left their finger-prints all over this ugly chapter in modern Malaysian history.
Sekali bah, sekali pasir berubah. Anwar Ibrahim, then Education Minister, is politically gone. So is Muhammed Taib Muhammed, then Selangor menteri besar regarded as an ultra. Lee Kim Sai, then MCA Youth chief, is now retired.
Among the culprits of Ops Lalang left living and standing right in the power corridor today is none other than Najib.
Najib is the 'crown prince in-waiting' for the coveted Prime Minister's post should Abdullah go wrong, or choose to retire for health reason ala Hussein Onn.
Reading the tea leaves, Najib's chances to claiming the political throne is left entirely dependent on how he plays subservient to the incumbent, for now, and how he uses the magical wand to command an erasure of the role he had played, and played up, that led to Ops Lalang 19 years ago.
That is Najib's archilles heel, politically speaking, and spins-doctors worth their salt should have seen that clearly.
That said, for The NST to raise the issue of Ops Lalang without underscoring its cause will only cast a negative effect on Najib's political fortunes. He may be the one who wanted the memory of Ops Lalang deeply buried.
Let me summise by quoting the concluding part of the wiki entry I just mentioned which, among others, states that:

Thus far, we have not seen any efforts during this Abdullah administration to abolish the ISA (read: Imprisonment without trial) and the Printing Presses and Publications Act, to name a few of those draconian laws. They are expected to be readily invoked should convenience suffice -- mark my word for that.
So talking about Ops Lalang, where's the beef? You may like to ask The NST that. For a start, why don't you get Abdullah to repeal ISA and PPPA and stop perpetuating all that's perceived as Mahathir's evils.
Abdullah could and he should. He has the People's 2004 mandate
In any case, the incident provided Mahathir's government with the excuse to further tighten the executive stranglehold on politics by further restricting fundamental liberties. In the following year, the Printing Presses and Publishing Act was given more bite by a requirement that printers and publishers had now to apply for new licenses annually whereas they were only required to renew them yearly before. In addition if any license is revoked, it could not be challenged in court. A prison term was added that publication of false news could land a publisher in jail for up to three years.

According to the White Paper explaining the arrests, various groups who had played up "sensitive issues" and thus created "racial tension" in the country had exploited the government's liberal and tolerant attitude. This racial tension made the arrests necessary and further, forced the government to act "swiftly and firmly" to contain the situation. The sensitive issues were brought on by what appeared innocuously enough as Education Ministry appointments of some 100 senior assistants and principals to vernacular Chinese schools. This provoked a storm of protest when it was learnt that those appointed were not Chinese (Mandarin)-educated. Politicians from the MCA, the DAP and GERAKAN, the major Chinese-based parties joined the protests and on 11 October 1987, the Dong Jiao Zong (Chinese educationists) held a 2,000-strong gathering at the Hainanese Association Building, beside the Thian Hou Temple in Kuala Lumpur, which evoked racially provocative speeches from the Chinese politicians present. The meeting resolved to call a three-day boycott in Chinese schools if the government did not settle the appointments issue.
In the event, even though the boycott was called off, albeit at the eleventh hour, the stage was set for a mirror response from the Malays, led by UMNO Youth. A mass rally of 10,000 was held at the TPCA Stadium in Kuala Lumpur and, by then, UMNO politicians had began to condemn MCA leaders for their collusion with the Dong Jiao Zong and the opposition DAP. Amidst calls from both sides for the resignations of MCA Deputy President and Labour Minister Lee Kim Sai and UMNO Education Minister Anwar Ibrahim, UMNO announced the holding of a mammoth rally in KL to celebrate its 41st Anniversary, which it was claimed would see the attendance of half a million members.
The proposed UMNO rally was the ostensible reason for the Inspector General of Police to precipitate the 27 October crackdown. Had the rally been held it was not improbable that racial riots could be sparked by the incendiary speeches of UMNO politicians. To make matters worse, a tinder box situation was already created by the rampage of a Malay soldier who killed a Malay and two Chinese with an M16 rifle in the Chow Kit area, straddling two large Chinese and Malay communities.

R.A.H.M.A.N prophecy close to fulfillment: Lack of good leaders the BN's DEATHBLOW

Written by  Christopher Fernandez, Malaysia Chronicle

Malaysians often like to toy with the idea of the R-A-H-M-A-N formula, which is the surname taken from Tunku Abdul Rahman, whereby all the country’s leaders’ names are derived from the letters beginning with ‘R’ for (Tunku Abdul) Rahman, ‘A’ for Abdul Razak, ‘H’ for Hussein Onn, ‘M’ for Mahathir, ‘A’ for Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and the end with ‘N’ for Najib. fulfillment
Is it really the end for BN with Najib as depicted by the “Rahman formula?” While certain soothsayers are of the opinion that its doomsday for BN after Najib, what is taking place in the Malaysian political landscape are better indicators that it’s the end game for BN.
Perhaps the best bet to hedge that it’s the end of Barisan Nasional is based on the glaring and evident fact that the coalition that obtained Independence from the British with Tunku Abdul Rahman at the helm is nowhere near what it used to be.
Since Independence, the subsequent leaders that Malaysia have witnessed in power as prime ministers have begun to diminish in value and the current leadership under Najib Tun Razak is probably a BN that is at its lowest and weakest ebb.
Worries over the ability of BN leaders
If Malaysians, by now, are in a quandary over their future, it is not a situation without basis. In the coming 13th GE, the nation is set to witness a fierce ‘battle royale’ between Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat.
While the stage has been set, and even many diehard political pundits are unsure as to what the final outcome will be like, what has become of real concern and of greater worry to Malaysians of all walks of life is the nature, behaviour, and basically the quality and capability of political aspirants from BN to continue to lead the rakyat.
Malaysians, whichever side of the political divide they support, and no matter if they follow the mainstream or alternative media, are of late, witness to the fact that quite a number of BN politicians lack integrity and ability.
Much doubt is now being cast over the sincerity and the leadership qualities of more and more BN politicians and this where most Malaysians are agreeable to the fact that there is a lack of capable leaders to steer the country forward if BN is to be given the mandate to rule.
Those whom Malaysians witness jostling to lead from BN are basically those whose motive clearly indicate that they have a “what’s in it for me motivation.”
The numbers of those with leadership aspirations that appear to be fuelled by self-seeking ambition have grown within BN leading to a great weakening and dislike for the coalition.
Pakatan Rakyat looms as being a more favorable option
With BN in disarray, the opposition coalition of Pakatan Rakyat has begun to warm up to Malaysians as a viable multi-racial party that hopes to fulfill the aspirations and hopes of every Malaysian in this country.
Ever since PKR, PAS and DAP have merged they have been able to present a formidable front and their union is seen as growing from strength to strength.
The fact that they are able to hold power in the Malaysian states of Penang, Kedah, Selangor, Kelantan, and indirectly in Perak, despite being relatively new in partnership, as opposed to the 55-year BN rule of the country, speaks volumes for the great strides and progress they have made.
In further staking their claim to greater power, Pakatan Rakyat has made progress and great strides in the states of Sabah, Sarawak, Johor, Negeri Sembilan and Melaka.
Pakatan Rakyat, unlikely as it might seem, have managed to band together an amazing coalition as the political parties of PKR, DAP and PAS seemingly are of different values, principles, convictions and background.
The fact that they can group together in a united show of power is the best indication that Malaysians have lost a lot of faith and confidence in BN as the prime leader of the nation.
From being an alternative coalition in the beginning, Pakatan is now emerging clearly in more and more states within Malaysia as the possible leaders who will drive the nation forward in the coming years.
Their politics of choice is perhaps what makes them appeal to more and more Malaysians and their leaders are seen as persons of admiration and strength who despite attempts at being discredited  by BN have managed the storms well to emerge even stronger and wiser.
Barisan Nasional leaders in disarray
The fact that Barisan Nasional is in a state of flux has been to the advantage of Pakatan and not only has the opposition coalition reaped greatly the benefit of BN going down on a slide but other voices have grown in unison to drown the voice of BN leaders.
This is precisely why in the nation of Malaysia, there are non-political figures who have emerged on the scene to help “set things right.”
While Malaysians may have endorsed their politicians in the general elections, they are also now beginning to lend support to the voices of leaders outside the parliamentary sphere and these are voices that are also rooting for Pakatan.
The Malaysian Bar, Bersih, Suaram and other NGOs and organisations are beginning to eclipse and overshadow most elected representatives especially those from BN.
This is because of the belief by more and more Malaysians that corruption has destroyed the trust of the people in those holding political office from BN.
If they don’t openly state it, it is understandable.
But Malaysians, irrespective of race or religion, education or social status, are now becoming more convinced that the choices of political candidates they have been having on offer from BN lack the expectations and hopes of most of the rakyat.
Perhaps what Malaysians are looking forward to, after having been under BN rule for so many decades, is to be able to see leaders of capability in which they can be safely assured and put their trust in them that they will do what is expected by the people to move the nation forward for the betterment of all.
Malaysia losing ground on globalization
It’s a fast changing world in which globalization has brought about a number of real, hard facts which BN leaders have either failed to notice or pay attention.
Malaysia will benefit greatly if they subscribe fully to globalization and put in place effective practices to toe the line of globalization.
But the dire predicament the nation finds itself in is to have to put up with BN leaders who want to go about leading the country their own way.
This resistance in adhering to the principles of globalization is actually due to BN political leaders in this country placing self-interests above the interests of the people.
Not only do Malaysians cast doubts over the BN leadership in this country, the international community has also openly voiced concern and they have grave doubts over the politics and policies that are in practice in this country.
While Malaysian leaders might like to contend that this nation is a sovereign state and they will not bend or bow to those whom they view as meddlers in the domestic affairs of this country, it is the absolute right of Malaysians to do so.
But it also pays to pay very careful heed as to what these “meddlers” are saying. By doing so, Malaysia and its leaders have nothing to lose but putting to rest any false claims or allegations that may or are being leveled against its leaders and this country.
This is why leaders in the Malaysian political arena from BN are often viewed with doubt and suspicion, not only by the local community but also the international community. There is obviously no doubt whatsoever now that the BN leadership of this country faces a crisis of credibility.
BN expected to further weaken
If nothing happens or changes in the choice and selection of leaders made available for the people to choose from in the 13th GE, the end result should witness BN further weakened and the nation descend into ruin or become a failed state by lagging in the globalization process.
Malaysians should endorse their choice of leaders without fear or favour and encourage and support the people they view as capable and being able to deliver to the people what the people entrust and hope for in their elected representatives.
Candidates that are doubtful or tainted and lack the trust and confidence of the people should be removed without a further thought by the people. Only those willing to sacrifice and serve the people should command the respect and recognition of Malaysians to safeguard and strengthen the future of the nation.
