In Malaysia, citizens are arrested, tortured and even killed for carrying out acts permitted by law. Malaysia advertises itself as a democracy, and has a constitution guaranteeing freedom of expression and the protection of human rights. When citizens act on their constitutional rights by criticising officials or organising non-violent protests, the government is quick to arrest them
this country to the next level and beyond. None of them have charisma or are able to demonstrate joined-up thinking. They spend more time working out how they can create ever larger projects so that they can shower their cronies with hand-outs and channel syphoned off millions to their “supporters”. In this country, its money that earns loyalty, not respect for integrity or intellect. At least he has the thick face to say he don’t want to show his accounts lar… The PM havent even uttered a single word about the Scorpene issue.
A motion concerning the nation’s security is not important enough to be debated in Parliament? Mr Speaker, what is imporant then?

Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani was today disqualified as an MP by the Supreme Court two months after he was convicted for contempt, a staggering verdict that was surprisingly accepted by the ruling-PPP which swiftly moved to select a new premier.
Capping nearly 30 months of bitter feud between the judiciary and the government, a three-judge bench headed by Chief JusticeIftikhar Chaudhry held that Gilani, 60, “ceased” to be the Prime Minister from April 26 this year.
Gilani was then convicted and sentenced for not obeying court orders to reopen graft charges in Switzerland against President Asif Ali Zardari.
Contrary to expectations that the PPP will back him to the hilt, the ruling party said it would abide by the verdict and set in motion the process of selecting Gilani’s successor.
Federal ministers Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar, Makhdoom Shahabuddin and Khursheed Shah are among those being considered for the post of premier, the sources added.
A session of the National Assembly or lower house of Parliament is likely to be convened tomorrow for the formal election of the new premier.
Today’s verdict came in response to several petitions that had challenged National Assembly speaker Fehmida Mirza’s decision not to disqualify Gilani following his conviction.
“Since no appeal was filed against this (April 26) judgment, the conviction has attained finality. Therefore, Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani has become disqualified from being a member of the Majlis-e-Shoora (parliament) in terms of Article 63(1)(g) of the Constitution on and from the date and time of pronouncement of the judgment of this court dated 26.04.2012 with all consequences,” the Court said“Corruption at the local level is so rampant that is has led to apathy among citizens, who are unaware of their rights.“ Voters must vote out the corrupt people come this GE.While meant to mock the brutality of the government of Islam Najib, the joke is also a pointed jab at Malaysian’s legal system.
