Azeez: Expect PR defections in Kedah

SUNGAI PETANI, 6 Apr 2009: Four Pakatan Rakyat (PR) state assemblypersons will defect if the Barisan Nasional (BN) wins the Bukit Selambau by-election tomorrow, claimed newly-elected Umno supreme council member Datuk Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim.

Speaking at the BN Youth operations center here tonight, he said, “Just wait and see what will happen within a week after our victory tomorrow.”

“We will liberate Kedah the way we liberated Perak,” he said to thunderous cheers.

However, no confirmation was given of who the four potential defectors were.


Azeez
Apart from Azeez, newly elected Umno Youth exco member Datuk Ahmad Zaki Zahid also told the crowd, “We will begin taking Kedah back not at the next general election, but tomorrow.”

Their announcements come within hours of news that five Kedah Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) division chiefs were quitting the party due to loss of confidence in the party.

Azeez, the ex-Putera Umno chief, also said that although he was now in the supreme council, he would defend Mat Rempits if they were in trouble.

Azeez told the 200-strong crowd of mostly Malay Malaysian men: “Go ride your motorbikes around town until midnight tonight, and until 5pm tomorrow, not to scare people but to raise their spirits.”

Several other local Umno Youth leaders repeated to the youths present: “Follow the law, but if the police give you a hard time just give us a call.”

The speakers also largely concentrated on attacking PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s alleged homosexuality.

“Our leaders are living angels, but their side is stuck with someone who is obsessed with backsides,” said Azeez.

The crowd roared its approval the loudest each time such homophobic comments were made.


Tan Keng Liang
Gerakan Youth chief Tan Keng Liang talked about the flaws in the Kedah Pakatan Rakyat government’s policies, criticising its quit rent and housing assessment policy. He stayed away from personal attacks.

Also attending the ceramah was local singing legend Datuk DJ Dave.

There are 35,140 registered voters in the Bukit Selambau constituency. Polling begins tomorrow at 8am and closes at 5pm in a race that involves a record 15 candidates, 13 of whom are independents.

However, the main contest will be between PKR’s S Manikumar and the BN’s Datuk S Ganesan.

    This. Is. Sick.

    Kalau pemimpin Umno/BN dianggap malaikat, apa kata pengundi-pengundi Bukit Selambau tentang Najib, Chua Soi Lek, Vijandran, Jamaluddin Jarjis, Rahim Thamby Chik? Inikah dikatakan angel? Lebih teruk daripada pengkhianat pemimpin-pemimpin Umno/BN.

    Another Nujum Pak Belang giving predictions. We shall see….Umno is very spirited with the coming of [Dr Mahathir] into the fray. With their “near death” condition, they will accept any help they can get, never mind the frail condition of the help itself….Such [a] sad state [of affairs] from a terminally ill party….

  4. Jojo circus says:

    Come one, come two, buy vote, buy assembly, you can’t buy our heart!

  5. PaulineL says:

    Good grief! It’s like legalising the gangsters. Where is law and order?

  6. James says:

    Wah….I have never seen a Chinese [Malaysian] speaker for BN Youth…..well done Umno.

  7. James says:

    Btw, can we trust this Ketua Mat Rempit?

  8. Suresh says:

    I congratulate Mr Tan for staying away from personal attacks. Opposition like PKR, PAS and DAP should follow Gerakan Youth!

  9. Kiat Blues says:

    It’s like Umno is controlling the police and [these leaders] are allowing the youth to break the law. Are these the kind of leaders we are looking for? Only Umno will look and admire this kind of hell’s angel.

    Hello Penyokong Umno,

    Tanya diri sendiri — pakar-pakar undang-undang ada di sebelah mana? Pembangkang kan? Jadi siapa lebih tahu tentang undang-undang? Yang saya tahu Umno menggunakan polis dan Pemuda Umno untuk ugut rakyat.

    Siapa yang terlibat dalam kerja-kerja haram?

    Kenapa Transparency International telah letak status Malaysia ke 47 banding dengan Singapore yang berada di tempat No 4? Sebab orang yang dipertanggungjawapkan untuk memerintah negara curi duit rakyat. Just as simple as that — no need to be a rocket scientist to figure it out….Pasal DSAI tak payah cerita. Tanya budak pun tahu ada conspiracy untuk bunuh karier politiknya….Kehakiman yang korup telah dibongkar dalam video Lingam. Jadi apa lagi hendak di kata? Pakai otak dan fikir secara rasional.

    Anti-Umno

    Nobody accuses you of being above the law at this time of the day, but you yourself proclaim to be one. “If the police give you a hard time just give us a call.”

    Is this a good example or a bad one, a good cause or a bad one?

  12. awangkassim says:

    In West Malaysia, Malaysians have awaken to reality mostly due to Mahathir. It was the Mahathir factor that led educated and thinking middle-class Malay [Malaysians] to object to Umno, which is now populated by “Sejarah Melayu”. Umno, Melayu kuno.

  13. Tommy says:

    This is crazy. Umno is indeed above the law. Teaching the youths of today that they are the [rulers] of the road. More road deaths in the offing.

  14. Lin Wen Quan says:

    This makes me sick.

    See how he encourages them to “Go ride your motorbikes around town until midnight tonight, and until 5pm tomorrow, not to scare people but to raise their spirits.”

    Several other local Umno Youth leaders repeated to the youths present: “Follow the law, but if the police give you a hard time just give us a call.”

    Now that BN has lost, will Umno and Azeez instruct these youths to “go raise hell”?
