Drama unfolding 风起云涌

A games is becoming popular recently among Malaysian politicians - Crossing Over. Actually it is not a new games and is also known as "defection", "frog politic", "money politic", "selling of soul". It depends on situation and side one is in. Former PM Mahathir and former DPM Anwar Ibrahim are the great masters of the games.

Recently Anwar Ibrahim has started a new set of Crossing Over games in Perak. So far he has scored one point over BN by successfully persuaded Bota State Assemblyman Nasarudin Hashim to defect to his party(PKR).

Another drama unfolded. 2 PKR State Assemblymen were reported missing for more than four days. The duo were charged in August last year for accepting bribes over the approval of an RM180 million housing project. They were suspected to have defected to Barisan Nasional (BN). Their defection may bring down the current Pakatan state government.

This evening, the event took a dramatic turn. Perak State Assembly Speaker announced that he has received faxed letter of resignation from the two assemblymen. Thus he declared the two state constituencies held by the duo vacant, Election Commission would be notified and by-election will be conducted within 60 days. However, one of them disputed the letter is from him. The legitimacy of the letters is subjected to dispute but It is a pre-empt strike by PKR.

Adding excitement to the dramatic situation, Deputy Assembly Speaker Hee Yit Fong of DAP is missing and cannot be contacted. She may have defected. And again in the late evening, she has been found and she has not defected.

Meanwhile, rumours rife that number of BN assemblymen are in talks with PKR to defect.

This is the beginning of a Beginning. The drama is unfolding...


马来西亚的政客最近流行玩一种游戏,那就是【跳槽】。其实这不是一种新玩意,它也被称为“背叛”,“青蛙政治”,“金钱政治”,“出卖灵魂”。这都要看当时的状况及所处立场而定。前首相马哈迪,前副首相安华,都是这游戏的大师。

最近,安华就在霹雳州开始了新一轮的跳槽游戏。到目前为止,他先拔头筹,说服波打州议员拿沙鲁定离开国阵,加入他的公正党,而一比零领先国阵。

在此同时,另一幕戏剧掀开。两位公正党州议员突然失踪四天,下落不明。这两人在去年八月,被法庭提控收取贿赂,以协助批准一项一千八百万的房屋计划。他们相信已经过槽到国阵了。假如是事实,他们的过槽国阵,将会拖垮民盟州政府。

但今天傍晚,事情却有了戏剧性的发展。霹雳州议会主席公布,他收到了这两位失踪议员的传真辞职信,辞去州议员的职位。他就宣告这两个议员代表的州议席立刻悬空。他将通知选举委员会,补选将在六十天内举行。其中一位失踪议员否认他有写这辞职信。这两封信的合法性受到争议,但这却是民联州政府先发制人的一招。

火上浇油,霹雳州议会副议长徐月凤(行动党)也宣告失踪,也被猜疑是过槽了国阵。但也是在今天傍晚,报导说她已浮面,并被证实没跳槽。

不过,谣言仍然炙热的传播说,还有几位巫统议员正在和公正党洽谈跳槽的事。

这是一个开始的刚开始。戏剧还在演出中。

议员跳巢,是出卖选民,应打入地狱,沙巴人对此事已经麻木了,心里只有无奈。

是的,沙巴人民的声音就是被这些没道德的青蛙政客给毁灭了。安华就是青蛙政治的创始人。

拜林可能就是最不喜欢青蛙的一个人了!
