Call off Penanti by-election!

I would like to make this suggestion to the Election Commission and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Call off the by-election for Penanti state seat in Penang. Appoint a special Cabinet committee instead, to look after the constituent and the well-being of the rakyat.

Its better than forking out so much money to finance a by-election. We have had one too many already since the last general election.

At this time of the economy, the money should be professionally-managed and be spent only for the welfare of the rakyat, NOT to fulfill the greed and meet the demand of unethical politicians.

The election provisions can be ammended, no doubt about it. After all, whoever wins of lose will not be of any significant. Should the Opposition wins, there might be another resignation. We cannot allow this to become a political trend.

By-election should be called should there be death or resignation over court cases.

Its time to consider this option. The Cabinet committee for unrepresented constituency will augur well in keeping the politics to order without sacrificing the rakyat. They can always wait until the next general election.

No need to call off the by-election, the govt. instead can give the oppositions walk-overlah.. let them `siok-siok sendiri'...

Surely you jest!

Why not then forget about national elections and have the whole country ruled by a 'SELECT' Cabinet Committee, presumably filled with UMNO MP's?

Of course there is that old saying that a camel is a horse invented by a committee!

The situation in Penanti arose from the investigation by MACC and their loudmouthing that the file had been forwarded to the DPP. Now it transpires Firus has no case to answer and the MACC has dropped all charges.

PKR/PAS/DAP did not engineer the situation and Firus did the honourable thing by resigning, now it seems hastily.

I'm afraid it's egg all over MACC and BN's face. And you are asking us to suspend the Constitution to be replaced with these goons and jokers?

Which asylum are you blogging from, man?

we should allow the by-election. its the only way to answer the rakyat. we cannot make such a proposal although it will mean savings for the government.

saya rasa suruhanjaya pilihanraya tidak ada kuasa untuk membatalkan pilihanraya kecil kali ini.

lainlah kalau satu usul dibawa ke dewan rakyat agar peruntukan seperti ini dipinda dan diluluskan.

cadangan sdr memang wajar, kecuali tidak sesuai pada masa ini

aku sokong jomosamatuaran. bagi je pembangkang kerusi tu. kalau bn menang pun, masih tak dapat rampas kuasa di pulau pinang.

you better think twice before making such a stupid proposal.

the provision of election commission is clear - that a by-election should be held should a constituent is vacant.

anyway, they should pass a bill at the parliament if they want to listen to you

Gawd, are you for real? Asking the Govt to set up a Committee to (mis) managed Penanti instead would be akin to letting a child loose in a candy store!!!
