1. Anwar Ibrahim
His moral integrity is highly questionable. The two sodomy cases, first in 1998 and another in 2008, had tainted Anwar’s political career. The first trial, which saw him being sentenced nine years jail for sodomy, saw his downfall from his peak.
Although he denied practicing unnatural sex and repetitively pleaded innocence in the exposure of sex video clips by his political nemesis, the vague and nervous response he showed in an interview with radio station BFM had nevertheless raised public doubts.
Anwar sings different tunes when he faces the Western media. For example, Malaysia has always supported the cause of Palestinians in their quest for nationhood. However, Anwar told Wall Street Journal that he had supported “all efforts to protect the security of the state of Israel”.
Another example is that Anwar told Australia’s The Sydney Morning Herald that he will support Lynas if it is proven to be safe although stopping the plant operation is part of Pakatan Rakyat’s manifesto. What a contradiction.
When he was the deputy education minister, he directed all Christian schools to take down the cross from their schools.
2. Lim Kit Siang
For being a “touch and go” politician. Kit Siang had contested in 10 general elections and a total of nine seats.
For his coming 11th battle, he is abandoning his constituents in Ipoh Timur for the Gelang Patah seat in Johor.
The support Ipoh Timur people had given to him in the past elections will be sacrificed in his quest for political expediency. But it is nothing new to Kit Siang, for he has been hopping around different states since he first contested in 1968.
The move by Lim Kit Siang to Gelang Patah also showed his lack of confidence to contest in mixed-majority seats.
Records showed that DAP has the upper-hand in Chinese-majority seats. However, whether or not the DAP dares to voice out in defense for the Chinese in the Dewan Rakyat once the Pakatan alliance accedes to power remains uncertain.
The party has chosen to become an ally with PAS and as a top leader, Lim Kit Siang has remained silent every time the Islamist party talked about implementing hudud law which many fear might impede the rights on non-Muslims.
3. Lim Guan Eng
For his sheer arrogance in ignoring public feedback and woes, having a high handed attitude that he knows what is best for the rakyat.
His arrogance is evident in the negative public reaction against the undersea tunnel project. The undersea tunnel is one of the four infrastructure projects totaling RM6.3bil announced by the state government.
It includes the 4.6km bypass linking Air Itam to Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway, a 12km Tanjung Bungah-Teluk Bahang paired road and a 4.2km stretch between Gurney Drive and Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway bypassing the city centre.
Instead of paying attention to public opinion and advice from the experts, Lim Guan Eng said the Penang state government which he took over in 2008 is willing to risk votes to go ahead with the project. This is coming from a man when power gets into his head.
The attributes of a good leader is to listen to his subjects and not think that he is always right.
On the federal level, Lim Guan Eng and his compatriots had been criticizing the Government’s handling of the country’s economy.
This is despite Malaysia successfully recorded GDP growth of 5.6% in 2012 in a volatile global economy.
On the contrary Guan Eng’s management of the state had gotten from good to worse. Foreign investor confidence is on a downhill.
Penang FDI had plummeted as much as 72% in 2012, while German-based technology company Robert Bosch GmbH has scrapped its plan to build a solar plant at the Batu Kawan Industrial Park losing potential investments.
4. Ngeh Koo Ham
On March 3, Ngeh Koo Ham had insulted the Indian community via social media in his tweet that their votes can be bought with sarees, Milo, beer and mutton curry. It is unacceptable for a leader and state representative to perpetuate such ethnic stereotypes.
How can a politician be expected to represent the people when he made insults hurting the community? There should not be a place for bloody racist in this country.
Last year December 2012, Ngeh Koo Ham and his cousin Nga Kor Ming had accepted bribes in the form of lands in Kelantan through its Mentri Besar Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, in exchange for the duo’s acceptance of a PAS man as Perak MB.
5. Nga Kor Ming
While Ngeh Koo Ham had insulted the Indians, likewise his cousin Nga Kor Ming shares the history of insulting Malays.
Nga Kor Ming had made an insensitive and racist remark against Perak Mentri Besar Zambry Abd Kadir calling him a “black metallic person” and “haram jadah“.
Malaysians do not need another bad-mouth Superman such as DAP’s Hew Kuan Yau to teach them rudeness and vulgarity.
Nga Kor Ming, being a state executive councillor played a part in getting his wife’s company (Ethan & Elton Sdn Bhd) awarded a lounge suit tailoring contract in 2008 when the short-lived Pakatan Rakyat state government was still in control.
Instead of being open about the accusation, DAP’s Lim Kit Siang issued a gag order to stop M. Kulasegaran and Nga from arguing publicly over the latter’s alleged involvement in the matter.
The party’s disciplinary committee had cleared Nga Kor Ming of any wrongdoing in February 2012.
This is the democracy, competency, accountability and transparency advocated by DAP.
6. Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim
For the Talamgate scandal, many questions were left unanswered over the debt recovery exercise to recover RM392 million from Talam Corporation Bhd which has ballooned into a RM1 billion fiasco.
The series of exposes revealed by MCA Young Professional Bureau chief Chua Tee Yong had showed that taxpayers money were used and there were clear evidence of impropriety, abuses, wrong doings and mismanagement.
It needs to be reminded that the Selangor government cannot just sweep the Talamgate episode under the carpet just by presenting a White Paper that left many questions hanging.
Khalid, for admitting that the manifesto is not a promise. He should not take lightly the rakyat’s trust and reneged on promises made in manifesto. More than 5,000 single mums in Selangor have filed separate suits against Khalid and the state government for not giving the special allowance promised to them during the last elections in 2008.
7. Tian Chua
Any credible leader should instill the spirit of patriotism and propagate the message of peace and stability. And NOT otherwise.
Unfortunately, Tian Chua has a track record of violence and is a perpetrator of hate culture.
He was caught red-handed in a video making a countdown from three to one leading a violent charge against the Federal Reserve Unit during the Bersih 2.0 rally in 2011.
Tian Chua was also charged under the Sedition Act after he alleged that the Lahad Datu incident was a conspiracy by the Umno government to divert attention and frighten the people.
No less than eight of our policemen died and several others were seriously injured while defending our nation from the invasion of armed terrorists.
Instead of conveying words of comfort to the families of our brave men who died, it was rather insensitive or rather most contemptuous of him to say that the incident had raised many questions and suspicions behind the theatrics (wayang mainan) of Umno.
Perhaps, he should go to the front line where our country’s soldiers are roughing it out under challenging conditions and putting their lives at stake.
Where is his gratitude to those who have sacrificed their lives so that he and is family can sleep soundly, peacefully and without any threat?
8. Tony Pua
For suggesting that the government downsize the 1.4 million civil service manpower. He described them as a bunch of useless government servants and that they don’t deserve any pay rise as well.
In 2011, Tony suggested that the civil service numbers be cut by half to help cut cost if Pakatan takes over. This is the UBAH policy as propagated by Pakatan Rakyat. This will make 700,000 jobless.
Under the so-called Project to Reduce Government Servants, Tony even said the Pakatan government would weed out incompetent workers while old workers would be asked to retire.
Tony’s logic to help the country save money is by taking away the people’s rice bowl and causing unemployment to go up.
9. Fuziah Salleh
For misleading the public that the Lynas Advanced Materials Plant in Gebeng is not safe.
Jack Lifton, who is a leading US expert in rare earths technology industry for five decades, has described Lynas as among the safest of its size in the world.
Even her own Pakatan comrade Pas former Hulu Langat MP Dr Che Rosli Che Mat, who is a nuclear scientist, said the accusations against Lynas were “unscientific and unacademic“.
Professor Dr Ismail Bahari, a Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia lecturer and researcher in radiation and industrial safety for more than 30 years, had also explained that it was wrong to draw parallels between Lynas and the nuclear plant in Fukushima, Japan, as the radiation levels at the two facilities were different.
10. Nik Aziz Nik Mat
For his remark that girls who do not cover their aurat deserve to get raped.
The PAS spiritual adviser had said in 2008 that those who did not cover their aurat were tempting men to rape them and that they only have themselves to be blamed.
A video of him making the despicable statement is on Youtube, which clearly recorded him saying: “She did not cover her aurat, and got raped. Serves her right for being raped” (dah dia buka aurat, dirogol, padanlah muka dirogol).
“She is selling cheap… her calf, her face, her thigh…rape lah,” he said in his speech recorded four years ago.
