Elections in Malaysia

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 5:57 am

Elections in Malaysia exist at two levels: federal level and state level.

Federal level elections are those for membership in the Dewan Rakyat, the lower house of Parliament,

while state level elections are for membership in the various State Legislative Assemblies.

The head of the executive branch, the Prime Minister, is indirectly elected.

Consitutional Monarchy

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 3:09 am

Malaysia has a Constitutional Monarchy – what does this mean ?

Constitutional monarchy (or limited monarchy)is a form of government in which a monarch acts as head of state within the guidelines of a constitution, whether it be a written,uncodified, or blended constitution. This form of government differs from absolute monarchy in which an absolute monarch serves as the source of power in the state and is not legally bound by any constitution and has the powers to regulate his or her respective government.

Most constitutional monarchies employ aparliamentary system in which the monarch may have strictly ceremonial duties or may have reserve powers, depending on the constitution. Under most modern constitutional monarchies there is also aprime minister who is the head of government and exercises effective political power. There also exist today several federal constitutional monarchies. In these countries, each subdivision has a distinct government and head of government, but all subdivisions share a monarch who is head of state of the federation as a united whole.

What is Democracy ?

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 2:31 am

Malaysia is a ‘Democratic’ country.

Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens have an equal say

in the decisions that affect their lives. Democracy allows eligible citizens to participate

equally—either directly or through elected representatives—in the proposal, development,

and creation of laws. It encompasses social, economic and cultural conditions that enable

the free and equal practice of political self-determination.

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 1:59 am

With the much anticipated dissolution of Parliament and the 13 General Elections in the air,

it’s a good time to know more about our Malaysian Parliament. Most of us already know

something about the two houses ie the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Read this enlightening Wiki article if you want more details about its history,

composition and powers, procedure and current composition of the parties.

SAVE Taman Sri Nibong Campaign

The Residents’ Association of Taman Sri Nibong has organized two meetings on 6th February, 2013 and 9th March, 2013 with three lawyers viz. Mr. M.S. Rajendran from Rajen & Lim, Mr. Allen Choong & Mr. Cheng Theng Keat from Allen Associates without any fee.  They have made a thorough study of the documents of the case where we organized a signature campaign against the intrusion  into our Taman with proposals of:

1) opening our main roads to the Expressway to facilitate outflow of traffic 

2) widening our existing roads when there is no space for such an exercise unless they remove our pavements in front of our houses. 

With  351 units of middle cost apartments in the 2 blocks built by Kewira Jaya Sdn.beside the Mussolla – Block A: 19 storey with 252 units with hall & 4-storey car park; Block B:14 storey with 89 units with hall & 4-storey car park, – the residents will suffer the intensity of population, traffic chaos, parking space, environmental pollution and the influx of more people and vehicles into our Taman.

We have suggested to the developer to find a way in and out of the development plot through the kampong to the Expressway.  We are not against any development for progress in any area.  The convenience of the residents must be given prior consideration as we have lived here since 1987.  

MPPP has rejected the developer’s plan.  The Company referred the matter to the Appeal Board which held its first meeting on 14th January, 2013.  At the hearing, the Chairman suggested that the Residents should engage a lawyer to look after their interest.  The next meeting of the Appeal Board will be held on 19th March, 2013 at 9.00 am, Tingkat 57, KOMTAR.  I hope that not only the 26 protestors but also the residents would attend to show our solidarity and unity of purpose.   Don’t forget, we have to take care of our interest.  Whatever the outcome, we have to fight the cause till the end.

The Residents’ Association has kick-off a Special Fund with RM5,000.  Every resident should contribute with at least RM100. Those who can and able, be generous enough to contribute more.  If the worse comes about, when our home ground is invaded, our property may be devalued and we shall be much inconvenienced.  I appeal to all of you to join hands and fight for the worthy cause till victory is achieved.

Thank you.  “Together we shall prevail”.
