KARPAL SINGH (DAP-Bukit Gelugor) today managed to get the signatures of 57 MPs — a quarter of the total of 222 — to file a motion under Standing Order 36(8) and Article 127 of the Federal Constitution to debate the conduct of Chief Justice Tan Sri Zaki Azmi.

At a press conference at the parliament lobby, Karpal said the 57 were made up of Pakatan Rakyat MPs as well as an independent MP from Sepanggar, Datuk Eric Enchin Majimbun.

He said Article 127 of the Federal Constitution allows for the debate on the conduct of a judge with the support of one-fourth of the MPs.

PETALING JAYA: Former adviser to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Dr Munawar Anees, will submit an application to the Court of Appeal to overturn the Federal Court decision to dismiss his appeal against a 1998 sodomy conviction within the next few days.

He said his counsel advised him to do so after the Federal Court dismissed his appeal on Oct 30.

Chief Justice Tun Zaki Azmi, who presided over a three-judge panel, offered no clarification as to the grounds for the dismissal of the case.

Although PKR members are disappointed that the party has missed its golden opportunity to form the government, it still has more to crow than to moan about at its first congress after the general election and where frank and critical views will be aired.

DATUK Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s keynote address at the PKR congress this weekend will be the most anticipated speech of the gathering.

As the most central figure in the party and the glue holding together the three Pakatan Rakyat parties, his address will impact his party as well as his coalition partners. Everyone is expecting him to touch on the Sept 16 issue and his continued claims and plans to form the federal government.

KUALA LUMPUR: Members of parliament (MPs) from both sides of the bench stopped their usual bickering and crossed partisan lines yesterday to support a motion tendered by Dr Mohd Puad Zarkashi (Batu Pahat-BN) to discuss Israel’s ongoing blockade of the Gaza.

In rejecting the motion, Deputy Speaker Datuk Ronald Kiandee said the Malaysian government has made its stand known to the world on the matter through a statement in October when it asked for strict action to be taken against the Israeli regime.

“I am satisfied that the issue is not urgent and need not be discussed here,” he said, drawing protests from both sides of the House.

KUALA LUMPUR: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) can look back to an eventful year as it convenes its fifth AGM this weekend.

As delegates head for the AGM, managing the party’s unexpected success and its relationship with coalition partners would be among its top priorities.

The loose coalition galvanised and now led by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, performed very well at the March 8 elections. Although the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) was unable to form the federal government, it now has control of five states.

—KENYATAAN MEDIA UNTUK EDARAN SEGERA—

KUALA LUMPUR, 27 NOVEMBER 2008

Kenyataan Timbalan Menteri Perdagangan Antarabangsa dan Industri Dato’ Liew Vui Keong di Parlimen semalam yang menafikan berlakunya pengaliran keluar pelaburan asing sebanyak RM 38 billion membuktikan sikap tidak bertanggungjawab kerajaan dan kedangkalan Timbalan Menteri tersebut akan kedudukan sebenar aliran pelaburan langsung asing di negara ini.

Kita bukan sahaja menghadapi fenomena aliran keluar pelaburan asing secara langsung(FDI) sebanyak RM38 bilion malah berhadapan dengan pelabur-pelabur tempatan yang mulai melabur di luar negara termasuk sektor pekilangan yang menutup atau mengecilkan operasi kilang-kilang mereka. Kita juga menyaksikan bagaimana pengeluaran pelaburan asing dari bursa saham negara menyebabkan kerajaan terpaksa menyuntik RM5 billion melalui Valuecap Bhd untuk menyelamatkan pasaran saham, dan sebagainya.

Seharusnya Timbalan Menteri berkenaan sedar akan peningkatan mendadak pembuangan kerja dan pemberhentian secara sukarela “VSS” di kilang-kilang dan perusahaan-perusahaan lain diseluruh negara akibat pengaliran keluar pelaburan langsung asing amat meruncing sekarang.

Timbalan Menteri juga perlu menginsafi fenomena aliran bersih pelaburan langsung asing yang negatif ini hanya dialami oleh Malaysia sedangkan negara-negara lain di rantau ASEAN mengalami peningkatan kemasukkan pelaburan langsung asing yang tinggi sehingga mencecah 80.9% berbanding tahun lepas.

Timbalan Menteri sewajarnya menarik balik kenyataan beliau dan saya sekali lagi menyeru agar satu sidang khas di parlimen ini bagi membahas isu yang sebegitu penting.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 26 – Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim appeared to stop short today of saying his Pakatan Rakyat (PR) alliance will have to wait until the next general election to make a serious bid for power.

He told reporters that he would not explain why the PR alliance has not yet taken power at this weekend’s PKR party congress.

“There is nothing to explain. It will happen,” Anwar said in Parliament. He did not set another deadline.

It is only appropriate that that tribute should have been penned by another splendidly dedicated doctor and fighter for the poor, Dr Jayakumar Devaraj, who is the brother of Rajen Devaraj, our ever-obliging officer at the Bar Secretariat.

Dr Rajakumar had been in University in Singapore with my elder brothers in the early 1950s as were people like Sydney Woodhull and James Puthucheary. It was very thrilling to hear about their tales of anti-colonial daring and about the University Socialist Club which played such a seminal role in nurturing the young Malayan patriots. And then the Colonial authorities took action and charged the entire editorial board of Fajar, the paper of the Socialist Club, with sedition. I think the “offending” editorial had welcomed the Viet Minh victory over the French at Dien Bien Phu and forecast the impending doom of Imperialism all over South East Asia.

KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Dewan Speaker Datuk Ronald Kiandee rejected Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s motion for Budget 2009 to be postponed temporarily to debate a United Nations report on Malaysia’s foreign direct investment (FDI) outflow.

The UN Conference on Trade and Development World Investment Report 2008 said that Malaysia’s FDI outflow had touched RM38bil compared with its RM29bil inflow, resulting in the country experiencing a net outflow of RM9bil, Anwar said.

Ronald said he received the motion based on Standing Order 18 (1) last Wednesday and it met only two out of three conditions.
