Media Statement on Khairy's election as UMNO Youth Chief

Media statement by DAP Socialist Youth (DAPSY) National Chairman and MP for Rasah Loke Siew Fook on Thursday, 26th March 2009 in Petaling Jaya.

Money politics triumph in UMNO Youth!

As a fellow Parliamentarian from Negeri Sembilan, I would like to congratulate YB Khairy Jamaluddin for being elected the new UMNO Youth Chief yesterday.

However, the election of Khairy as the UMNO Youth Chief proved that money politics have been openly endorsed by the UMNO Youth delegates. Although a person is found to be involved in the scourge of money politics, he can still lead the UMNO Youth.

That shows that all the talks about “UMNO must change or be changed” are mere political rhetoric to please the general public. What credibility is left for UMNO if a person found to be guilty by the UMNO Disciplinary Board on account of money politics can still be elected to lead the most important wing in the ruling party?

Khairy was of course being treated differently by just given a warning and was allowed to contest the post. This however did not erase the fact that he was found guilty on money politics by his own party leaders. Money politics is corruption, period.

By tradition, the post of UMNO Youth Chief will also come with a Cabinet position. Will Khairy be selected in the Najib’s administration? If it happens, then we will see a very tainted Cabinet line-up and we will be a major laughing stock in the world as a person found to be guilty of corruption by his own party can still be appointed as a Minister!

Was money the main factor behind the victory of Khairy? The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) must be serious in finding the truth and act without fear or favor. I’m proposing to both my counterparts in PKR Youth and PAS Youth to lodge a joint report against Khairy Jamaluddin in the MACC headquarters next week.

You have a choice on our behalf to defeat a confirmed corrupted leader.

During the vote of no-confidence motion for Pekan as PM, just vote NO.

Without your endorsement, Pekan will remain as Pekan and President of Parti Korup Malaysia.

Rembau will remain as Rembau and Parti Korup Malaysia's Youth Leader.

Move a motion of confidence for Gua Musang as the 6th PM of M'sia.

Dear YB,

you can lodge with MACC; that will be an acid test to Badawi's resolve and Najib's impressive speech at the AGM about UMNO's will to fight corruption.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating. Action, or non-action, will speak louder than any word, however moving they are.

Syed "Botak the Clown" Hamid lost his bid for UMNO MT and by convention so goes his KDN Ministerial post. Serves him right for being an incompetent/nincompoop Minister.

I hope he remains unemployed for a very long time. And with Seputeh's suit against him, I hope he is declared bankrupt as well when the court rule in Seputeh's favour.

It is a LOL joke when the Three Stooges of UMNO aka Kinabatangan, Pasir Salak & Batu Pahat are elected to sit at MT position.

The Three Stooges are confirmed sexist, racist and dim-witted ultra right wing jerks.

Rasah can testify to it, or check the Hansard for proof.
