Haji Hadi should ask for an emergency Dewan Sitting!

I have refrained from rushing in to comment on the Terengganu politics. Even 24 hours is a long time in politics. As of now, what we are sure of is, Ahmad Said and another left UMNO. They are now independents. The term has no substantive significance. It is just a term of art signifying, we are available for kautim.
Late last night, I received information that both of them have declared themselves to be BN friendly independents. If a vote is taken inside Terengganu’s DUN, BN would have 18 potential affirmative votes- including one from the speaker. It will be 18-15. 16 from BN and 2 from the BN- friendly independents.
The chief reason why I refrained from rushing in, is my understanding of the UMNO psychology. Very rarely do UMNO members show their real intention loudly. Unless they want to use that loudness as a bargaining chip and are using their high decibel protests as advertisements saying they are available for discussions. Najib needs to fear the silent ones more than Mat Said and his fellow traveller. Mat Said’s bark is worse than his bite.
But what can Haji as PAS leader do?
He can write to the speaker asking for a special sitting of the Dewan. Then he can table a vote of no confidence in the new MB. Let us see how things work out. Maybe on that particular day, some UMNO ADUNs will stay out citing illnesses, food poisoning and some other convenient ailments.
At the moment, we need to understand- Mat Said and his fellow traveller’s backpedalling is just for show- to minimise pressure from UMNO top leadership and also to lull the UMNO leadership into a complacency. People of Ahmad Said’s temperament are not ones to quickly extinguish their anger for some time. He and his fellow supporters and those of like mind may have decided to stay quiet for some time. So PAS should not waste time too much to ask for a special sitting of the Dewan. The Speaker cannot refuse their request. Hadi heads the voice of 15 ADUNs in Terengganu. If the Speaker delays, Hadi can set himself before the Sultan.
It is strange why UMNO is quick to prefer a siting of the DEwan to verify and establish for a fact as to whether the MB has the majority voice. It didn’t show the same prudence, circumspection and judiciousness when the same thing happened in Perak a few years back. There, the Sultan did not ask for a sitting of the Dewan but instead was ready to accept an oral presentation from the relevant parties, namely from UMNO. It was one man’s word against another. The willingness and readiness to accept without having to go before the Dewan has created a precedence affirmed by the court. That you can change a state government without having a special sitting of the DEwan to establish legitimacy.
Haji Hadi could have gone before the Sultan and Terengganu to say- that his party or faction has the majority voice in the DEwan. If the Sultan of Terengganu followed the precedent in Perak, Haji Hadi could propose someone from his faction to become MB.
But UMNO didn’t. It is more willing to test its legitimacy in the Dewan believing that when push comes to shove, it will still have 18 votes.
Hadi’s people could be better off cultivating the UMNO people who prefer to keep quiet but are willing to deliver the coup de grace later. So, know the UMNO psychology. Najib is not yet safe and he knows it.
Ask for a special Dewan sitting and I assure you, Najib will shit bricks.

Do not bother to waste time. Najib will just offer BRIM or wang ehsan to Ahmad Said and his cronies. Problems solved.

Tun Dr M tangan sudah Mula bergerak lancar ...cergas dan ingin Kuburkan Najib Serta merta.....kucar-kacir sini-sana, tangan lain tikam Najib ...

Najib ingat dia selamat dengan PRU 13 yang dapat lebih sedikit kerusi Parliamen dari Pak Lah dan Adun....ramai orang UMNO pun nak tengok aksi hebat Tun...yang ingin anak dia naik thakta TPM sebelum ALLAH panggil Tun....

Sekarang semua ADUN cakap berapa $$$$$$$$$ Million untuk duduk Diam atau berontak...$15m ?? $25..?? $30m???

Tun tak Sabar lagi nak lihat anak dia jadi TPM....Muhiddin tengok paling gembira ...Rosmah pulak luangkan masa dengan Rakyat pergi Shopping....

Kalau Sultan berani.... BUBARKAN ADUN Trengganu...jadikan Sultan yang disanjung bukan macam Sultan Perak Dulu..... Kalau Sultan Perak boleh buat sesuatu sampai Karpal Singh boleh didakwa Hasut....maka kita nak lihat juga apa Sultan Trengganu boleh buat.... kita bagi dia ruang dan tunggu..... Jangan sampai legasi macam Sultan Perak juga atau Kelantan atau Johor...

Dato, i won't be surprised if these crooks changed their mind & go back to UMNO. Human are overcome by greed. Najib can use money to lure them back.

PAS is too gentlemen to be in politics. In fact, they are politically naive.

They should use this opportunity to get rid of Najib (biggest obstacle to Pakatan's aspirations because he does not follow the law) by demanding an Assembly sitting.

Trying to look angelic in this crisis will only play into the hands of the haram party.

Najib know how to buy people and votes. He is a buyer and he will pay to get those defectors to return to the fold with the tails between the legs and laughing their way to the bank.
This is UMNO style? They gertak to make money.
I will not rely on the palace or the courts to favour PAS or the Opposition. This is Malaysia, UMNO's Malaysia.

To these politicians,throwing tantrums like little spoilt babies are like little girls playing 'masak masak'.They think that by their antics showed that they were smart or brave,but to the rakyat these are stupid fools.To be more polite,these are political jokers and circus clowns.

Spot on Dato. If anything, I think the rest of the Umno reps know their personal monetary worth now. And money is what makes them tick. It takes only two or three of them to hold Najib to ransom. So what's happening now is just the calm before the storm. PAS can help themselves by pouring some fuel once in a while to make things more interesting there.
