Umno can keep Putrajaya, give rakyat the rest if…

(Free Malaysia Today) –  Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar has given Umno president Najib Tun Razak 30 days to decide if he wants be like the noble warrior Hang Tuah or the delusional Mat Jenin.

Commenting on his speech at last week’s Umno general assembly, the PKR leader noted that Najib had made references to two of the Malay cultural iconic characters.

As for Hang Tuah, she said the legendary warrior symbolised the noble virtues of courage and fair play, and would never resort to using underhand tactics against his opponents.

Nurul, who is the daughter of PKR supremo Anwar Ibrahim, called on Najib, who is also prime minister, to turn his speech into action within 30 days while the Parliament was still in session.

For starters, she said Najib should repeal all anti-democratic laws since he had stressed that Malay rights were locked with a golden key and enshrined in the Federal Constitution.

“Therefore in Parliament, he must repeal all anti-democratic laws such as the ISA (Internal Security Act), UUCA (Universities and University Colleges Act) and PPA (Printing Presses and Publications Act), which are no longer needed to protect those rights,” she added.

Since Najib mentioned that the Malays could compete with the best, Nurul said: Therefore in Parliament, the prime minister must guarantee to take measures so that there will be free and fair elections.”
