Single mother aid program @ Flat Sri Melewar

Good morning. I am at a community program in Flat Sri Melewar in Glenmarie, Shah Alam. My office have not been giving much attention to this community which is on the fringe of my constituency. So when the opportunity arose, I decided to allocate some time for it. This program is an Al-Quran reading and single mother aid program organised by Amanah. I will be heading to Sungai Besar later.

Sungai Besar is on

Sungai Besar is on. Amanah takes on PAS and BN. Nomination went on without a hitch. Senior leaders turned out was good. Bumped into DPM Zahid Hamidi and offered my condolences on the passing of his son in law.

PKR officially supports Amanah!

Better late than never. Last night, PKR finally and officially supports Amanah for Sungai Besar! Tonight, Kak Wan is expected to be in Kuala Kangsar.

Since last week, I was in a few Pakatan Harapan election preparation meetings on Sungai Besar. So it is with a personal big sigh of relief that PKR makes this late but principled stand.

Suffice to say, those who want to continue to support PAS, have the liberty to do so. But please no more pretending, be a real man and state your position. I have consistently and openly supported Pakatan Harapan and treat Amanah and DAP members as my brothers and sisters. Even during the Sarawak Elections debacle, I stood my ground.

ULTIMATELY, the choices we make and the actions we take as elected representatives will be noted and remembered by the rakyat. We all have to answer to those who put their trust in us to make decisions on their behalf. As MPs, we must always remember that our sole purpose is to make Malaysia better for all.

Hi Tea Event by Angkatan Wanita Amanah (AWAN)

Yesterday, I was invited to an Amanah women event in USJ. The Amanah ladies are led by a young PHD student Siti Sarah and guided by my elderly friend Hajjah Kamariah. It’s a good start for a very young party to put fresh faces into leadership positions.

It was a meet and greet event with some 50 women. I talked about my family and my budget for Kelana Jaya and urged them to help me with my welfare programs.

Haji Baha and Kamarul, the leaders of Amanah Kelana Jaya were also there. Together we were the token men, surrounded by a sea of women. I have a very good working relationship with Baha and Kamarul since their PAS days. In 2013, Haji Baha grilled me for an hour or so, then decided to support my candidacy for Kelana Jaya. I like his upfront approach because I too am like that.

Pakatan Harapan Agreement 2016

It’s a historic day for Pakatan Harapan; our first convention where PKR, DAP and Amanah will sign a Pakatan Harapan Agreement. My office was tasked with translating the agreement to English and I wish to thank Nadirah, Wyhow and Mr.Phang for their efficiency and hard work.

A preview of the Agreement

The core difference between the now defunct Pakatan Rakyat and Pakatan Harapan is that PAS is no longer in our coalition. And because PAS is no longer in, there is no such thing anymore as “agree to disagree”. To seal that bond the leaders Kak Wan, Mat Sabu and Guan Eng have agreed to commit our parties with a written agreement.

I understand that there is still a lot of skepticism from the public. They look at current politics and think we are doomed by factionalism and it doesn’t help with Anwar Ibrahim in jail.

I have been involved in coalition politics since 2009, in fact I was the lead lawyer for the formation of Pakatan Rakyat. I can attest that this new Pakatan Harapan is far superior because of the legal mechanisms contained in this agreement. However more important than that, is the fact that the parties are much more solid in philosophy, policy and spirit.
