Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi. giving “suicidal” statements what will happen in the 2016 polls if UMNO is lost that people of this country will teach Najib a lesson

The conspiracy theorist and the voters who could not take yes for an answer.

Najib’s challenge today is that his biggest opponent today is none other than the memory of Najib Do governments lie about the magnitude of economic problems Governments are unwilling to tell the truth about the magnitude of the economic problems, the lack of solutions and cost of possible corrective actions to the electorate.Politicians have taken regard of historian Simon Schama’s comment that no one ever won an election by telling voters it had come to the end of its “providential allotment of inexhaustible plenty”.. Ordinary people are complicit; refusing to acknowledge that maybe you cannot have it all.This was a wave. In retrospect the 2013 verdict was an enthusiastic splash. Neatness tends to descend quickly on elections once they are over. It becomes immediately clear to analysts as to what happened and why. And yet, this time around, the results are of such a scale that even the most determined television panelist might take a pause to process what has just happened for it confounds all expectations and makes all previous analyses look faintly ridiculous.There are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration that may influence the results of the 14th general election, which has to be conducted on or before Aug 24, 2018, two months after the Parliament dissolves automatically on June 24.

Umno, what price is Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s loyalty?

. UMNO must not fade away mid-journey  That is the great strength of UMNO democracy. There will be aberrations here and there, there might be concerns about the present situation  We are not committing any crime, as a matter of fact, we love the party very much.

By making a public statement, in my opinion, it is not good because it not only strains ties between -me and Najib there is absolutely no scope of  dialogue.The tricky part is to discover what kind of talk makes sense.You need only a trumpet to launch hostilities. Peace requires a rather more complicated orchestra; there will be discordant notes from some insistent trombone; the bass could be playing a military march; all musicians might  not read from the same sheet; and there is always the likelihood of liberal violins airing  strains more relevant to heaven than to realists who live on earth. If the maestro-conductor tears his hair occasionally, you can understand why.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.said  Swiss attorney-general chief prosecutor released a statement saying he had asked Malaysia for help with his probe into possible violations of Swiss law by 1MDB, saying suspected misappropriations amounted to about US$4 billion (RM16.8 billion).He said such details should have been kept private between the two governments.Some of the money was found transferred into Swiss bank accounts held by former public officials from Malaysia, and both former and current public officials from the United Arab Emirates. Swiss prosecutors also said they had asked help from Malaysian authorities through international mutual legal assistance. Zahid said today Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali would be meeting his Swiss counterpart to obtain more information.
 Prime Minister Winston Churchill, for example, in his nation’s darkest hour, inspired his countrymen to stand firm against Nazi tyranny despite the odds. Mahatma Gandhi summoned his nation to the great ideals of tolerance and respect for diversity and human dignity. President John F. Kennedy appealed, in his inaugural address, for sacrifice and commitment to make America that shining light upon a hill, an inspiration to the world. Nelson Mandela urged a nation divided by decades of apartheid to reconcile, to build a new nation based on justice and inclusiveness.
The structure of government does not change, whether it is brilliant or awful. A prime minister presides. A Cabinet sits in attendance. But government collapses when common purpose is lost, when every minister becomes his own master and the prime minister turns into a helpless spectator. Government degenerates into a circus without a programme; acrobats become indistinguishable from clowns. The next prime minister must be able to exercise something more vital than the tenuous authority of an office no one takes seriously .UMNO has had a resigned air without anyone actually having resigned.

– Najib can offer nothing very new. The speeches are still as powerful, but by now he has spoken on every subject Najib’s rule produced the achhe din (good days) promised during his election campaign?Now  corruption is rampant. But I distinguish between crony capitalism and political protection rackets. The former bestows monopoly profits on cronies. But if after paying up, the businessmen get no monopoly or abnormal profits,  the new AG becomes Najib’s protector, not predator
Days after the Prime Minister of Malaysia was cleared of wrongdoing in an investigation into transfers of money into his bank accounts, the Swiss government announced Friday that it had found serious indications that funds had been misappropriated from Malaysian state-owned companies.
The sovereign wealth fund at the center of the Swiss inquiry, called 1Malaysia Development Berhad, or 1MDB, has been the focus of several investigations around the world as authorities attempt to ascertain whether money vanished in a series of international business deals.
The sovereign fund is overseen by Najib Razak, Malaysia’s Prime Minister, and it has become a political target in his country, where his opponents have pushed aggressively for his removal.
The statement by the Swiss authorities is the strongest comment by law enforcement that there is significant evidence of wrongdoing related to the Malaysian state-funded companies. 1MDB and its web of business deals were featured in an investigation by The New York Times a year ago of properties in the United States owned by people close to the prime minister.
“We believe we have compiled significant evidence of illegal transactions and wrongdoing, which we will transmit to the respective Malaysian authorities in the coming days,” said André Marty, a spokesman for the Swiss Attorney-General, in an email.
The Swiss Attorney-General formally requested help from Malaysia in its investigation, and Mr. Marty said that his office hoped that Malaysia would provide that assistance. He said that Malaysia’s Attorney-General had agreed to do so in a meeting in Switzerland in September.
Aiding in both of those deals was a young businessman named Jho Low, who is a longtime friend of the prime minister’s family. Mr. Low was also active in helping the prime minister’s stepson, Riza Aziz, acquire luxury properties in the United States, The Times found in its investigation, and was involved in Mr. Aziz’s movie business in Hollywood. Mr. Aziz has said one of his main financial backers of the movie company was Mohamed Ahmed Badawy al-Husseiny, who was at the time the chief executive of Aabar, the United Arab Emirates company that was a partner in business deals with 1MDB.
The Swiss have not singled out anyone by name in their announcements and have not made it clear whether Mr. Najib will be a target of their investigation. The Department of Justice in the United States is also investigating 1MDB deals as well as properties in the United States owned by Mr. Low and Mr. Aziz.
Representatives for PetroSaudi, Mr. Najib, Mr. al-Husseiny, Mr. Low and Mr. Aziz did not respond to requests for comment.

Malaysian law enforcement has moved toward closing the investigations into Mr. Najib. The announcement this week focused on questions surrounding nearly $700 million that had been deposited in Mr. Najib’s bank accounts. Malaysia’s attorney general on Tuesday said the money was a personal donation to him from the Saudi Royal Family.
The Swiss announcement on Friday provided details on the direction of Switzerland’s investigation. It said that $4 billion was believed to have been misappropriated and that some of that money was transferred into bank accounts in Switzerland held by former Malaysian public officials and current and former public officials in the United Arab Emirates.
The United Arab Emirates carried out a series of business deals with U.A.E. state companies and 1MDB, and some of those deals are mentioned in the Swiss announcement, including a joint venture in 2013 between 1MDB and a United Arab Emirates state company called Aabar. The announcement also says the Swiss are looking into allegations involving a small oil company called PetroSaudi that carried out a joint venture with 1MDB.
Since then, however, Malaysian law enforcement has moved toward closing the investigations into Mr. Najib. The announcement this week focused on questions surrounding nearly $700 million that had been deposited in Mr. Najib’s bank accounts. Malaysia’s attorney general on Tuesday said the money was a personal donation to him from the Saudi Royal Family.
