Tindakan Terhadap 2 MP UMNO Yang Celupar?

Walaupun Ahli Parlimen Sri Gading, Datuk Mohamad Aziz telah menarik balik kenyataan yang bertanya sama ada Pengerusi Bersama BERSIH, Datuk S Ambiga patut digantung kerana menderhaka, tetapi gabungan itu berkata Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak perlu memohon maaf terhadap tindakan wakil rakyat dari partinya itu.

Memandangkan tindak-tanduk Mohamad turut dikongsi rakannya dari Umno, Datuk Shamsul Anuar Nasarah yang juga ahli parlimen Lenggong, maka gabungan itu menegaskan bahawa Najib juga perlu bertanggungjawab di atas apa yang berlaku, selaku pemimpin Umno dan parti pemerintah.

Menurut BERSIH lagi, melainkan BN sebuah parti yang sukakan keganasan, maka Najib atau whip BN sepatutnya segera mengarahkan mereka menarik balik kenyataan itu dan memohon maaf kepada Ambiga, parlimen dan seluruh negara, dan segera mengenakan tindakan disiplin terhadap kedua-duanya.

Dalam satu kenyataan, Sekretariat BERSIH berkata, jika perdana menteri memilih untuk tidak berbuat apa-apa tentang, maka tidak ragu-ragu lagi ia akan menguatkan lagi label 'demokrasi palsu' yang diberikan kepadanya oleh akhbar Kanada, Globe and Mail.

"Dan rakyat Malaysia juga akan membuat penghakiman mereka bila tiba hari mengundi nanti," kata gabungan itu yang berkempen untuk pilihan raya yang bebas dan bersih. -mk

Say sorry, Bersih tells Najib

PETALING JAYA: Electoral reform watchdog Bersih wants Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to apologise over a remark by a Barisan Nasional MP that its co-chairperson S Ambiga should be hanged for treason.

Sri Gading MP Mohamad Aziz said in Parliament on Tuesday night that Ambiga should be tried and hanged for treason for organising the Bersih 3.0 rally.

“We call on Najib to apologise over the call by two Umno MPs to have Bersih co-chairperson tried and hanged,” Bersih 2.0 steering committee said in a statement.

Besides Mohamad, Lenggong MP Shamsul Anuar Nasarah also supported the suggestion to hang Ambiga for the “treasonous” act of organising the April 28 Bersih rally for free and fair elections.

The statement noted that Najib and BN chief whip Nazri Aziz were keeping quiet about taking disciplinary action against the duo, adding this meant “BN is a habitually violent party”.

The steering committee said Najib’s inaction and the “witch-hunt campaign against Bersih 2.0 leaders” had given the impression that Najib is a “false democrat”.

The term “false democrat” was coined by Canadian journalist Mark MacKinnon on Sunday in an article entitled “A Roster of the Modern Democrats” published in The Globe and Mail.

Yesterday, BN secretary-general and Putrajaya MP Tengku Adnan Mansor said Mohamad’s statement was his personal opinion and did not reflect the ruling coalition’s stand.
But the Bersih committee rejected Adnan’s statement, saying:

“No self-respecting prime minister would… expect to disown his coalition’s responsibility with an excuse that it was the personal opinion [of the MP].”

Mohamad also later retracted his remark in the Dewan Rakyat when instructed to do so by Deputy Speaker Wan Junaidi Jaffar.

“… if the statement I made had hurt my Indian friends, the MIC or PPP. If it hurts my colleagues in BN, and affects our spirit of understanding, then I retract what I said…” he said.

But the committee brushed off Mohamad’s retraction, saying “it shows his thinly veiled arrogance despite the nationwide outcry [against his remark]”.

“Mohamad did not even bother to apologise to Ambiga, Bersih and 250,000 Malaysians who went to the street on April 28 for electoral reform.

“And Shamsul did not even withdraw his support for Mohamad’s statement.” -FMT
