ALLAH MENYELAMATKAN PAS DALAM KEKALAHAN




Kekalahan PAS di Kedah melegakan buat Azizan Razak

Oleh Md Izwan
KUALA LUMPUR, 14 Mei — Kekalahan PAS di negeri Kedah adalah sesuatu yang melegakan buat bekas Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Razak, kata setiausaha politiknya Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor.
Sekiranya kemenangan 2008 berjaya dipertahankan menurut Muhammad Sanusi, situasi kecoh berebut jawatan dikalangan pemimpin parti Islam itu pasti berlaku memandangkan kedegilan dan sikap keras kepala.
“Kita terlepas satu beban yang sangat besar. Hang bayangkan kalau kita menang dan aku ada dalam wad, tentu kacau bilau lebih besar daripada awal 2013 hari itu,” kata Azizan kepada Muhammad Sanusi yang dipetik dari akhbar berbahasa Melayu Sinar Harian hari ini.
Dalam artikel yang ditulis oleh Muhammad Sanusi itu, beliau mengesahkan beberapa masalah dalaman yang berlaku dalam PAS di negeri tersebut, antaranya cadangan dan arahan Azizan sudah tidak lagi diendahkan.
“Kita di Perhubungan Negeri sudah tak ada kuasa apa-apa. Pesuruhjaya ada ramai di Kedah.
“Hampa pi lah ke Pejabat Agung, aku sudah tak boleh buat apa-apa,” tulis Muhammad Sanusi mengenai apa  yang dikatakan kepadanya oleh Azizan.
Disamping itu, Azizan juga meluahkan rasa tidak puas hatinya ke atas segelintir pemimpin PAS di Kedah yang tidak lagi merujuk kepadanya selaku Pesuruhjaya Negeri tetapi sebaliknya mengadu kepada Ibu Pejabat PAS di Kuala Lumpur.
“Tak ada siapa mai habag dosa apa yang aku buat, main hentam jauh-jauh saja. Mai lah cakap depan aku, apa salah aku. La ni semua pi panjat Pejabat Agung. Kita di negeri dah tak laku. Biaq depa jawablah,” kata Azizan beberapa bulan sebelum pilihan raya umum ke 13.
Sebaik berakhir pilihan raya, Azizan (gambar) terus dimasukkan ke wad kecemasan Hospital Besar Pulau Pinang dan ketika ini masih lagi menerima rawatan selepas kedua-dua belah kakinya terpaksa dibuang bagi mengelakkan jangkitan merebak ke seluruh badan.
Azizan sebelum ini dilaporkan telah dimasukkan ke hospital akibat penyakit kencing manis dan bukannya serangan jantung.
Beliau turut dilaporkan koma pada 5.30 petang Rabu minggu lalu, namun sedar semula kira-kira jam 9 pagi, pada Khamis.
Barisan Nasional (BN) berjaya merampas kembali Kedah apabila mendapat majoriti mudah pada Pilihan Raya 2013.
BN menguasai 21 daripada 36 kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) manakala PAS (9), DAP (2), PKR (4).
Bagi Parlimen, BN memperoleh 10 daripada 15 kerusi manakala PKR (4) dan PAS (1).
PRU kali ini menyaksikan kekalahan teruk PAS dan hilang kuasa ke atas kerajaan negeri manakala Timbalan Presidennya, Mohamad Sabu yang diharap menang di kubu kuat parti itu di Parlimen Pendang, tewas kepada calon BN Datuk Othman Abdul.

NIK ABDUL AZIZ SLAYED 3 GIANTS




Nik Aziz, the small man who slayed three giants

Harakahdaily, 10 May 2013



HARAKAHDAILY EXCLUSIVE May 10: 'Giant slayer' is the badge of honour given to a candidate whose victory ended the political career of a hitherto influential incumbent.

In recent times, many Pakatan Rakyat politicians have earned the badge, most notably Nurul Izzah Anwar for defeating Wanita UMNO chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil in Lembah Pantai in 2008 and Federal Territories minister Raja Nong Chik last weekend. Many other examples abound, and not limited to opposition candidates alone.

But there is one person who has quietly warded off bigger giants, three to be exact, all of whom had full control of Barisan Nasional's well-oiled machinery.

Indeed, he has kept at bay three UMNO presidents and prime ministers: Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and more recently Najib Razak.

The man is none other than Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, who recently announced his retirement from the Kelantan state government which he helmed for 23 years since taking over in 1990.

Living legend

Friends and foes will agree that Nik Aziz is a living legend in Malaysian politics.

After all, ensuring Kelantan stayed under PAS rule long before the political tsunamis after the sacking of Anwar Ibrahim in 1998 - and long before Malaysians had any access to news other than those dished out on UMNO media - is in itself a record of sorts. And this is made more difficult because Kelantan is not as rich as Selangor or Penang. With limited resources and access to media over the past 23 years, the average Malaysian wonders, how did Nik Aziz make it this far?

Against Dr Mahathir from 1990 to 1999, Nik Aziz survived without the new media, presently enemy number one to BN's traditional propaganda tool in the form of TV channels and daily newspapers. One can also call him lucky for he received help from UMNO’s splinter party Semangat 46 led by Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah in 1990 and 1995, before the reformasi era sparked by the events of September 1998.

In the 23 years since 1990, Nik Aziz and his aura politically transformed Kelantan. With 95 percent of its population Malays - the same community who UMNO now claims to have solid support from - Nik Aziz's leadership became the iron wall that kept UMNO's dominance at bay, in fact, effectively making a mockery of all succeeding UMNO leaders' goal to make a comeback in Kelantan.

Even Abdullah's image as 'Mr Clean' and as a pious Muslim could not work magic to bring down PAS’s reign in Kelantan.

In 1990, Nik Aziz who led PAS joined hands with Tengku Razaleigh to make a clean sweep against BN, 39-0. In 1995, PAS retained Kelantan government with 36 state seats against 7 for BN.

In 1999, it was almost another clean sweep for Kelantan, losing only two out of the 43 state seats contested, this time without help from Semangat 46 which was on its death bed.

One-seat majority, only in Kelantan

Then in 2004, the opposition's darkest period in recent electoral history, BN managed to snatch a whopping 21 seats in Kelantan against PAS's 24. BN’s subsequent victory in Pengkalan Pasir by-election further reduced PAS's majority to one seat. But despite hanging on to one-seat majority, the PAS administration continued. A rare feat, especially when seen in the context of Malaysia's money-ridden politics where it is normal for elected representatives to jump ship (and jump again) for obvious reasons.

Under Nik Aziz’s leadership, the Kelantan state government survived and managed to regain two-third majority in 2008.

In the just concluded 13th general election, Nik Aziz delivered his parting slap to BN, winning two-third majority for his administration.

But many are not aware that three days before polling day on May 5, Nik Aziz, 82, now faced with frequent health issues, had already made up his mind to give up the post which was almost synonym to him.

True, his most talked about trait is his simple lifestyle - something which earned him respect from Malaysians transcending religious and racial boundaries. But beyond such cliches, his contribution to Malaysian politics has been profound. Truly, his is a tough act to follow.

He might have led the state of Kelantan, but his message is for all of Malaysia.

And this message, to put it simply, could be this: “Moderation is the most potent weapon against your political foes. And BN is not as mighty as many perceive.”

LEBIH 100 RIBU SERTAI HIMPUNAN BANTAH PRU 13









Harakahdaily, 08 Mei 2013

(Kira-kira 100,000 memenuhi luar dan dalam Stadium MPPJ Kelana Jaya)

KELANA JAYA: Lebih 100,000 orang berkumpul di Stadium Kelana Jaya bagi membantah penipuan dalam pilihan raya umum  ke 13 baru-baru ini.

Ketua Umum PKR, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim mengetuai perhimpunan ini dengan disertai sama oleh Timbalan Presiden PAS, Haji Mohamad Sabu.

(Orang ramai memenuhi stadium sejak lewat petang tadi)

Walaupun hujan renyai-renyai sejak petang tadi, ia tidak menghalang mereka berkumpul di stadium itu.

Lebuhraya Persekutuan yang menghala ke kawasan perhimpunan jam teruk sejak petang tadi.

Ini adalah perhimpunan pertama dianjurkan selepas pilihan raya umum ke 13 yang menyaksikan Barisan Nasional (BN) kembali berkuasa tetapi penuh dengan kecacatan.

Di RUSILA, Marang, puluhan ribu juga berkumpul di perkarangan Masjid Rusila dalam himpunan gergasi rakyat Terengganu bersama PAS.
Mereka memenuhi perkarangan masjid itu dan mendengar ucapan dari pimpinan PAS dari Dewan Terbuka Tok Guru yang terletak di sebelah masjid itu.

(Gambar kanan: Himpunan di perkarangan Masjid Rusila, Marang)

Antara yang menyertai himpunan di perkarangan Masjid Rusila adalah bekas Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Muhamad Haji Mohd Taib. Beliau dilihat antara faktor penyumbang kepada gelombang besar yang melandar Selangor dalam pilihan raya umum baru-baru ini.

Isu dakwat kekal yang tidak kekal, pengundi warga asing, lampu padam ketika pengiraan undi, kotak undi yang jatuh dari helikopter yang membawa dan pelbagai cerita lagi.

Kali ini, dengan semua penyokong adalah mata dan telinga atau jentera Pakatan Rakyat segala penyelewengan ini didedahkan melalui media sosial.


(Tan Sri Muhamad Mohd Taib berdepan dengan puluhan ribu di Dewan Tok Guru, perkarangan Masjid Rusila malam ini)

Gambar, video dan cerita disebarkan dengan cepat bagi membukti pelbagai kecacatan pilihan raya ini.

Berasaskan kepada itulah mereka turun beramai-ramai malam ini untuk mendengar sendiri sikap dan pendirian Pakatan Rakyat mengenainya.
