Malaysia Today website banned

Government orders ISPs to block access to Malaysia Today

I have not been able to acces RPK's website for the past few days - now I know why. Of course the internet being free, you can get around this (info courtesy of Jeff Ooi) by going to:-

More calls for PM Badawi to resign for BN's failure in Permatang Pauh by-election - "Its the only way to save the party"

From Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, a potential challenger to the Father-in-Law for Umno presidency:

"It is time to face the music: it is we who have been buried," he said.

"Our leadership is rejected by the rakyat and, moreover, is rejected by our own members. BN's vote count was less than the number of Umno members in the constituency.

"Within and among our component parties we ran a poorly coordinated and listless campaign against a motivated opposition.

"What scraps of credibility the prime minister and his deputy had left after March 8 are gone," he added.

From Mukhriz Dr Mahathir, the potential challenger to the Son-in-Law for a post in Pemuda Umno:

"I think Abdullah should strongly consider for all our sakes, to step down now," he told AFP.

"This is a second time that the Malaysian people have given a clear message, with the first at the general elections. It is a rejection of the present leader and he must leave now."

Anwar Starts His Campaign

Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has launched his bid to return to parliament.

Mr Anwar was cheered by thousands of supporters as he filed papers to contest a seat in the northern province of Penang.

The opposition alliance headed by Mr Anwar enjoyed unprecedented support in a general election in March.

But he has since been charged with sodomising a male aide - an accusation he says is politically motivated.

In spite of the charge, Mr Anwar has vowed to press ahead with his effort to end the 51-year reign of Malaysia's Barisan Nasional (National Front) coalition.
