The Bolehland Daily: More fracas as Mukhriz accuses Zaid of working for Pakatan

(Malaysiakini) More signs of a deepening Umno strife surfaced in the Dewan Rakyat today with controversial BN Jerlun member of Parliament Mukhriz Mahathir taking a bold swipe at fellow party member and de facto Law Minister Zaid Ibrahim.

Zaid, who during his winding-up speech on the royal address, was in the midst of speaking on government’s effort to introduce judicial reform was interrupted by Mukhriz.

"Congratulations, minister as you have done well in realising the opposition’s goals then that of your own party," was the beginning of Mukhriz’s (right) tirade against Zaid, who is Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department for legal affairs.

Zaki, a former lawyer for Umno, is known to be on close terms with Prime Minister and Umno president Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

His appointment as appellate court president in December last year was controversial with various quarters questioning his capability to be impartial due to his past affiliation with Umno.

"And this person was recommended by your prime minister himself," Mukhriz said, causing a ruckus in the BN's side of the House.

Serious judicial reform
Zaid wasn’t inclined to take Mukhriz’s jibe lying down and in a subtle but immediate rebuke replied that "maybe the person who made this statement is not comfortable being in BN".

Zaid, continuing with his winding-up speech, assured the opposition that the government was serious about reforming the judiciary.

ISA, SCC to be reviewed

Zaid, however, said that while the Internal Security Act would not be repealed despite pressure for the government to do so, certain sections of it would be reviewed. He said that he, Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar and attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail have been tasked to review certain sections of the draconian law, which allows detention without trial.

The BolehJokes humors and thoughts:
Deanna: Mukri is again making a fool of himself. Trying to be superhero but ends up being super clown.
Reza: Botak Mukri is such a joke. Correcting the wrongs and improving the laws means working for Pakatan, then you should work for Pakatan. What the people wants is fair judiciary. Like father like son. Dictator mind. People are not stupid these days! Get a life, botak!


Anifah rejects offer to head Umno MPs club

Kimanis member of parliament Anifah Aman today rejected an offer to be the chairperson of the newly revived Umno Parliamentarian Club in the Dewan Rakyat. Coming at the heels of wide speculation that he is being enticed by the Pakatan Rakyat to defect, his decision will surely be seen as yet another blow to Prime Minister and Umno president Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

What a pile of Mukri's rubbish!
