Milaka Ahbeng Lu Mau Kincing Lagi Ka? Mosque Election Fiasco

Kincing Sana Kincing Sini

Milaka Ahbeng manyak hancing ma!

GEORGE TOWN (June 19, 2011): Neither the DAP nor the Penang state executive council has any say in the decisions of the Penang Islamic Council (MAIPP), Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng emphasised today.
He said this in the wake of criticisms that have come about after the King ordered the MAIPP to defer its exercise to conduct elections in mosques throughout the state.
The elections were scheduled to be held last weekend.
The Yang Dipertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, conveyed the order when MAIPP president Ellias Zakaria had an audience with him at Istana Negara on Friday.
Ellias was accompanied by Penang Yang Dipertua Negeri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas.
"The DAP has no representative in MAIPP," Lim, who is also DAP secretary-general, told a press conference here. "I also have no say in its affairs. The MAIPP has never asked me for any approval on its decisions."
Lim said it was unfair of Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim to imply that Lim was involved in the move to hold the elections.
Rais had said Lim should remember that Islamic matters fell under the jurisdiction of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong in Penang, Malacca, Sabah and Sarawak.
Lim described Rais' statement as dishonest and irresponsible in trying to link him to MAIPP's plan for the elections.
He stressed that he also did not have anything to do with the decisions of the state Hindu Endowment Board as it represented a specific religious community.
"Rais Yatim is playing dangerously with fire by linking me with the mosque elections," Lim said, challenging Rais to show evidence that he was involved.
Tuanku Mizan had also told the MAIPP to set up an independent committee to come up with suitable procedures for the elections, which are now held back till 31 Dec 31, next year.
Tuanku Mizan had consented to extend the appointment of existing mosque committee members until then.
The committee members and new procedures proposed would then have to get consent from him.
Prior to this latest turn of events, state Religious Affairs Committee chairman Abdul Malik Kassim had issued a statement last Thursday to stress that Penang would go ahead with elections for the mosque committees despite objections from certain quarters, as the move is provided for under section 22(4) of the Penang Islamic Council Enactment.
He had stressed that through the elections process the mosque communities would themselves propose their committees to the MAIPP, for the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to approve.
A total of 151 mosques were slated to hold elections during their annual meetings, while the members of 34 other mosques made some compromises among themselves to facilitate the elections.
Only eight mosques had not submitted candidates' forms as required to the MAIPP.
The MAIPP is expected to issue an official statement after it's meeting this week. Source here

Penang prepared to go to court over mosque elections

GEORGE TOWN: The Penang government is prepared to face court challenges over its decision to have election of mosque committee members in the state on June 18, said State Religious Affairs, Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Committee chairman Abdul Malik Kassim.
He said the election of mosque committee members was provided for in Section 22 (4) of the Pulau Pinang Islamic Religious Council Enactment.
"A total of 4,485 people have offered themselves to fill the 4,530 vacancies in 151 of 200 mosques in six districts in the state, to enhance the preservation of the mosque institution," he said in a statement issued Friday.
He said 151 mosques will be holding the polls while the rest would be using alternative methods of selecting the committee members. - Bernama Source here
