My Sinchew/ RUU355

A step forward for RUU355

What worries us is that PAS could gradually build up its momentum through such a process to help it secure a bigger support so that it will be harder to block the bill next time.

Early adjournment not due to politics: Pandikar

Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia today denied that he had adjourned the debate on the Private Member's Bill to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 2016 (RUU355) yesterday because of political agenda or pressure received from any party.

The price of political deals

Everything seems to have been planned. The Umno-PAS cooperation is still on-going and Umno has not yet abandoned PAS, and is still looking for ways to reassure its "new friend" after reversing its decision.

Parliament is dead: Tawfik

Tawfik Ismail says the fact that Pandikar has allowed the amendment bill to be tabled by PAS president Hadi Awang in the Dewan Rakyat today shows that the Parliament is dead.

Finally, Umno feels the pinch

The game is yet to be over, and Umno will have to draw up some new plans to consolidate its hold of the Malay vote. As such, it is unlikely GE14 will be held very soon.

Putting country's interests first

As Najib has yet to clearly state BN's stand on the amendment bill, there is still room for both sides to cooperate in future.

BN's decision anticipated: Mahfodz

PAS Ulama Council chairman says his party will table the RUU355 amendment bill according to Hadi Awang's plan, and that BN's decision not to take over the bill has been anticipated.

The art of politics

The antagonistic posture between MCA and DAP, and an apparent lack of unified stand among PKR, Bersatu and Amanah all give Umno more room to maneuver its plans.

Sarawak rejects hudud: CM

"Sarawak will not agree to the hudud law, and our stand is consistent with that of the late former chief minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem, that we are against the hudud."

Secularism undermines Islamic agenda: IKSIM

IKSIM is of the view that as the country's official religion, the Islamic mechanism should command the highest position, not as an alternative to the legacy of the colonial times.
