The significance of the PAS leader’s foolish acknowledgement on Facebook that there was a plot from the start to overturn the GE14 election result cannot be under-played. It opens a myriad of further questions that must now be also answered – beginning with who, what and how?
In the post, where he brags about the ‘success’ of the ‘Sheraton Move’, the ulama cum politician (who has also admitted he lied in advance of the election when he sued Sarawak Report for exposing his secret alliance with UMNO) said the plotting started from the moment BN lost at GE14 and that he was part of it.
Consider the implications. As Sarawak Report recalls (having been falsely charged under this very heading) there is a crime under Malaysian law punishable by 20 years in jail for ‘Activities Detrimental to Parliamentary Democracy’. If plotting to overturn an election result not in your favour the day after the people have spoken does not qualify, then what does?
It gets worse, because this political extremist who has already caused street violence resulting in deaths in the course of his career, crows as an added achievement that these anti-democratic objectives were fulfilled without bloodshed.
The strong implication is that Hadi would have been willing to shed blood (again) had it been necessary to achieve his political goals, ministerial salary and perks, which he plainly equates with ‘Allah’s will’. He describes his acts as ‘clean’ and ‘democratic’, which plainly they are not.
Hadi even alludes to applauding international observers, whom he claims have praised him for managing his coup without killing anyone – he should provide some names.
The ‘Tok Guru’ then naturally goes on to praise himself for ‘cleaning up the administration’, when the entire country has been appalled and disgusted over the past year at the blatant pork barrelling, conflicts of interests, bloated cabinet, dodgy contracts and appalling bribery and blackmail of MPs to secure the most embarrassing display of jumping party frogs that even Malaysia’s corrupted money politics has ever witnessed.
No one has hit the streets to object in the least, he boasts, omitting to mention how the coup mongers have exploited Covid not only to threaten dire punishment against anyone who sticks their nose outdoors to raise their protest but even now to shut down Parliament itself in the face of the collapse of their bought coalition of rivalling rebels.
Naturally, the boastful posting refers continually to Allah’s ever present will that of course supports each and every surprising moral misdeed Hadi happens to engage in. See the translation:
Divine will aside, people in Malaysia can now thanks to these vain admissions reach some very firm conclusions about the treachery and corruption of certain political figures, including Hadi, and demand for further elaboration.
The PAS leader says the plotting began from the minute he and his secret allies from UMNO lost. The PH coalition which had been voted in on a platform to reform Malaysia’s mafiosi style ‘money politics’ were naive newcomers to the game of ‘political football’ compared to his own party, says Hadi, who brags he was by contrast well entrenched in the past politics and knew all the tactics well.
Easy to just overturn the PH newbies – ‘Perak-style’ by buying up the more biddable MPs? This, rather than abiding by the will of the electorate is what the political guru explains he regards as ‘clean’ politics. Better than politics soaked with blood, which appears to be his alternative solution to a result he didn’t like.
Hadi mocks how PH’s planned reform measures were delayed (but fails to mention how one major block owed to unelected Senators appointed by his own secret allies in BN).
So with whom did Hadi plot from Day One? We can assume the former head of UMNO/BN Najib was with him at the start, given the secret pre-election alliance which was supposed to have resulted in his appointment as Deputy PM in an UMNO/PAS coalition post-GE14.
The frogging over to Bersatu straight after the election by long-time Najib fixer Hamzah Zainuddin and his yes-men we can now also confirm to have been part of the plot from the start – the plan being to destabilise the coalition from within.
More significantly, the meetings in London and Morocco during the post-GE14 the summer vacation between Azmin Ali and the likes of deep pocketed BN crony Vincent Tan and Najib’s cousin Hishamuddin Hussein take on a new significance.
The betrayal of Azmin and his connections to Hadi Awang had of course started well before the election as the ambitious PKR number two moved to take full advantage of the political imprisonment of his boss. He wanted to ‘Frog’ him as well.
After all, Azmin had already plotted together with Hadi to elbow Wan Azizah out of her position as the state leader in Selangor, on the grounds of PAS’s religious bigotry against women (the bigotry also applies to gays, but politics is nothing if not for hypocrites).
Now Hadi has now effectively confirmed that Azmin’s betrayal of PH was indeed entrenched from the start, aided by those Sarawak MP’s bound tightly to his Selangor funded payroll.
Furthermore, as UMNO, their PAS pawn and big business cronies moved their chess pieces into position in those early months, one must now start to question what was being done on the constitutional side of things with regard to the all important player of a friendly Agong?
How certain rulers must have undoubtedly fretted as PH cancelled corrupted contracts worth countless billions traditionally designed to fund vast palaces, polo ponies and troops of hangers on. How UMNO (and Azmin) must have seethed that the previous Agong granted a full pardon to the PKR leader on his release as an acknowledgement of their cooked up charges. So plenty of potential for allies in that camp.
Following the admission of a sophisticated plot by experienced long-term ‘players’ Malaysians now have to wonder whether the release of so much scandal followed by the removal of the previous Agong, who had agreed to fulfil his constitutional role and install the majority elected leadership as Malaysia’s first non-UMNO government, was also part of the political mafia’s pushback strategy to over-turn GE14?
Hadi was in the thick of it, he’s told us, so he should answer this and every other question about how his plot was pulled together. After all, he clearly has no shame or sense of wrong-doing or fear of being judged as others are, so why hide the all these details for one moment longer?
Just look how he considers himself free to criticise the judgement of the Federal Court, whilst his own government just prosecuted Malaysiaki to the tune of half a million ringgit for the same offence (carried out by third parties on their site).
So let’s hear the full story step by step about what he and his co-conspirators got up to – the full football match – not just throw away admissions and vague references on Facebook.
Why hesitate, unless he fears the wrath of fellow plotters if he gives too much away?
Hadi has already put further pressure on Malaysia’s present constitutional head to demonstrate a full integrity in the handling of his appointed Frog Coalition government and he has further closed the room for manoeuvre for his viciously rivalling present allies.
Does he fear that earthly laws may at last catch up with him. Unless, his heavenly ally over-rides the extensive interventions of modern medical science and claims him first.
