The Umno disciplinary board has been asked to speed up its investigations into the 900 plus complaints of money politics it has received so that those found guilty would not be able to contest in the party polls next March.
Rais Yatim said he had been asked to pay for votes in an upcoming contest for top posts, and warned that money politics would destroy the organisation.
Foreign Minister Rais Yatim said "the majority" of Umno members were more interested in making money out of the election than in voting for the right person.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) is allowed to investigate cases involving money politics in the run up to the Umno party elections in December.
So why the fuck can't UMNO disciplinary council take any action. Hello its already bad enough that the fate of this country is left in the hands of 2000 odd voters. It can't be that all of the complaints are false or lacking in evidence to take any action. Can't they even find 5% of the cases to make examples of? Corruption is corruption, why one set of rules for the political parties to decide disciplinary action? What the fuck is the ACA doing?
Only in Malaysia where money politics is so openly discussed and not denied. So why the fuck does the government complain everytime the country slides down some corruption index.
I don't know how far its true when Tun Mahathir said that he will publish the names of money politics offenders so if he does that would make some interesting reactions.
