Like I’ve been saying, it ain’t over till the fat lady sings. Madame Speaker can call and set the date for the next meeting of the Selangor legislative assembly.
The current DUN session is adjourned sine die (without fixing a new date) but Standing Order 10 (2) permits Hannah Yeoh to summon the Aduns with a minimum of 28 days’ notice. It is possible that she will be announcing this afterwards today.
The Selangor state assembly Standing Order 10 (2) reads:
“Disyaratkan, iaitu, jika Dewan telah ditangguhkan dengan tidak menetapkan hari mesyuarat akan datang, Tuan Speaker bolehlah menetapkan harinya; dan dengan itu Setiausaha Dewan hendaklah menghantar surat pemberitahu hari yang ditetapkan itu kepada setiap ahli sekurang-kurangnya dua puluh lapan hari sebelumnya.”
What is within Hannah Yeoh’s power above is an administrative procedure that is in the books.
DAP’s cold-blooded biawak approach
Hannah’s boss the Iguana Eng does not want the Selangor DUN to be dissolved by Khalid Ibrahim.
Pakatan is afraid of snap polls.
They prefer to force Khalid to resign – see Kit Siang’s statement below – and install Anwar’s MB (My Bini) as the replacement Menteri Besar.
MB’s prerogative to call emergency sitting
Unlike the Speaker’s power to set a date for the DUN meeting as per normal procedure, the Menteri Besar can call an emergency meeting under Standing Order 10(3) if there is pressing public interest.
What the DAP wants is a sitting where their 29 (minus Speaker) pro-Azizah Aduns can rubberstamp the motion of no confidence against Khalid.
In Guan Eng eyes, it is “extremely selfish” of Khalid should he choose to dissolve the assembly instead of accepting a forced resignation.
DAP evangelista hit squad on the move
In the meantime, the below-the-belters DAP Yang Berhormats are attacking the Khalid camp.
Yesterday, Hannah Yeoh’s former Personal Assistant Rajiv Rishyakaran now turned Bukit Gasing (PJ Selatan) Adun held a press conference to diss Selangor GLC, Communication Corporation Sdn Bhd, which runs the state propaganda machine, for allegedly serving Khalid’s personal agenda.
Alongside DAP colleagues YB Yeo Bee Yin (Damansara Utama) and YB Lee Kee Hiong (Kuala Kubu Baru), Rajiv accused Khalid of abusing the media machinery to promote his cause.
Worms now crawling out of the can
Yeo (pix above) took issue with Selangorkini, the state newspaper, for what she described as its attempt to justify Khalid’s position while not giving equal coverage to Wan Azizah, see yesterday’s Malaysiakini report ‘Khalid using state media for own propaganda‘.
She further challenged Khalid strongman Faekah Husin to stop printing Selangorkini, claiming that the Pakatan service centres will no longer distribute the state Malay paper. “We will send all these propaganda materials for recycling,” Yeo snided.
Note: Yeo Bee Yin is the evangelista Adun for Damansara Utama where the infamous church is located.
She had previously taunted the Muslim NGOs, “Congrats! You have won your holy war. Go celebrate” when the Federal Court rejected the application by Christian paper Herald against the Court of Appeal’s ruling on its use of the ‘Allah’ word.

Anyone still remember Selangor Times, the Hannah publicity organ?
Regular readers of my blog may recall that some two year’s back, I had highlighted how the fawning Selangor Times editorial team provided Hannah Yeoh an overdose of publicity. The Jerusubang Adun was featured in practically almost every edition like it was her grandfather’s newspaper.
(Khalid’s press secretary Arfa’eza Aziz – in beige tudung above – and Faekah were the two Malay advisors to Selangor Times, which was otherwise an all-Christian Chinese outfit.)
But now Hannah’s little-big minion Rajiv – photo montage below- is suddenly griping that Khalid, who used to condemn Utusan, “is going down to the same road as Umno” in utilizing the media at their disposal.

Evangelistas exploit state machinery like duck taking to water
When the state media was misused to glorify Hannah, Rajiv & Gang were perfectly fine with it.
They only now complain about how much taxpayer’s money is being wasted by Selangor to blitz the sheeple with pro-Khalid propaganda because of their unhappiness with the currently partyless MB.

Selangor’s massive expenditure on indoctrination
After Pakatan took control of Malaysia’s richest state in 2008, a ton of money was poured into creating the massive brainwashing machine covering every nook and cranny in Selangor. The evangelista network was the quickest to take advanatge.
In rural Kuala Kubu Baru, copies of Selangorkini are “all taken up immediately after its arrival”, revealed the constituency’s DAP Adun Lee Kee Hiong.
Apart from Selangorkini which gives away 56,000 free copies daily, CCSB also operates TV Selangor for 22,000 subscribers.
Note that Selangorkini has a bigger circulation than the NST that only sells 37,885 copies. Also in the state stable is Media Selangorku, a comprehensive multimedia set-up whose Facebook has 158,000 ‘Likes’.
Malaysians living in the Pakatan states of Selangor and Penang are the most indoctrinated people in the whole country. The evangelistas peddle propaganda and holy water to the point of overkill – see, ‘51 photos of Guan Eng in single edition of Buletin Mutiara‘.
