I suggest that a poll be carried out if the rakyat are really behind or supporting the hedonistic and pleasure-seeking style of politics embraced and played by Pakatan-Rakyat leaders.
They used the word rakyat to decriminalize their actions but I wonder if the rakyat are really supporting and agree with their behavior and frolics.
The latest incident, on the first day of Parliament session on Monday, is another testament of the ruckus behavior of Pakatan-Rakyat leaders led by newly sworn-in Bukit Gantang MP Nizar Jamaludin who is a PAS leader.
Seconds after taking his oath, he shouted hidup rakyat, bubar DUN (long live the people, dissolve the state assembly) and put a black headband bearing the words Bubar Dun.
Subsequently, he was booted out of the House along with several other PR MPs.
Unquestionably, his behavior does not reflect his high stature in society but such manner belongs to the monkeys in the zoo.
No wonder, they even went to the extent of holding a state assembly session under a tree which is normally associated with the primate.
I don’t think majority of the rakyat who voted him agree with the way he behaves. In fact, PAS deputy president Nasharuddin Mat Isa attempted to distance himself from the fiasco, saying Nizar had acted in unison with his opposition colleagues from Perak without informing the party.
Nizar is not only an embarrassment to the country but was using the Parliament House to grab attention and spotlight from the foreign media.
His style of politics of using the rakyat will backfire and boomerang. I believe not everyone in this country concur with what Nizar is doing.
Many of us, especially the poor, are still waiting in agony promises made by Nizar and his colleagues in PR to uplift their living standard and economic development they had pledged before they were voted to power.
Nizar must have forgotten that he did not get a convincing majority when he won the Bukit Gantang by-election.
Nizar only managed a majority of 2,780 votes against Barisan’s Ismail Safian who garnered 19, 071 votes.
He must remember that they are many people in Bukit Gantang who do not support him.
I believe Nizar will be vilified by the rakyat in the next General Election if he continues to be a clown in his own circus.
