Mustafa Ali starts blog…

…and his first post (excluding the introductory one) is one of criticism towards the way his comrades have dealt with various issues.

Mustafa Ali is from PAS. And he allocated his first blog post to both Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim of PKR, and Lim Guan Eng of DAP. So there you have it, a complete trio comprising of DAP, PAS and PKR, the Pakatan Rakyat.

And what does he have to say?

About Khalid Ibrahim: (referring to the suspension of Khalid’s aide, who has subsequently quit the post)

Dalam kes di Selangor, saya secara peribadi mengucapkan tahniah kepada Menteri Besarnya, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim atas sikap berani dan tegasnya. Kata orang tindakan beliau itu without fear or favour.

Namun begitu, bagi saya Khalid tidak wajar berbuat demikian. Sebagai MB, Khalid perlu bertindak sebagai seorang MB bukan seumpama seorang CEO. Sebagai MB, Khalid perlu merujuk kepada rakan-rakan dalam barisan Exconya serta juga rakan-rakan pimpinannya dalam PKR di samping parti-parti dalam Pakatan sebelum mengambil sebarang tindakan. Apatah lagi Yahaya adalah Setiausaha Perhubungan PKR Negeri. Dalam pilihan raya lalu pula Yahaya adalah Pengarah Pilihan Raya PKR Selangor.

About Lim Guan Eng:

Dalam kes Pulau Pinang pula, saya sependapat dengan Ketua Menterinya, Lim Guan Eng dalam kepentingan menjaga alam sekitar. Semua pihak, bukan Lim Guan Eng sahaja sensitif dengan tindakan kerajaan negeri Kedah untuk mengambil balak di dalam kawasan tadahan air di negeri itu. Namun demikian, sebagai rakan dalam Pakatan Rakyat, Lim Guan Eng tidaklah boleh menyerang Menteri Besar Kedah, Azizan Abdul Razak begitu sahaja tanpa merujuk dan secara yang berlapik.

Perhaps all this is healthy criticism. Because when everyone agrees with everyone else, then there will be no room for discussion, and subsequent development and improvement.

But then again, it can also be a sign that the three different political parties are not that united under the Pakatan Rakyat flag. Perhaps communication between the parties are not good enough. Perhaps they don’t have enough Pakatan Rakyat meetings.

I cannot tell. But so far, I think healthy criticism is better than unhealthy bodek-ing. Let’s hope they don’t make this into a big issue of “un-cooperativeness”.
