“As far as PAS in Perak is concerned, we will be in Pakatan Rakyat forever and ever," Nizar said.
“There is no way we will pair with them (Umno). We are the Pakatan Rakyat, a composition of PAS, DAP and PKR,” he said in a press conference after chairing the Perak Water Board meeting here on Monday.

"The muktamar will give me an opportunity to present my case," the Kelantan menteri besar told reporters in Kota Baru yesterday. Nik Aziz has been vehemently opposed to the idea of Pas leaders discussing political matters including cooperation with their Umno counterparts.
Now as I have stated earlier on I do believe that we do need to look at what's going on concerning the "merger" from a bigger perspective, from a wider angle. If you'd make some times tonight to visit Harakah Daily, they are not highlighting any of this. In fact what seems to be the main news in that particular web portal (see above pic) is Umno gagal gugat Pakatan Rakyat - Anwar
The mixed messages sent out are actually clear enough for anyone to decipher. It is whether you can swallow it or otherwise would be the issue, very much depending so on where you're coming from.

Idris Jusoh Appoints Lawyer Over Perdana V6 Maintenance Statement
BESUT, July 25 (Bernama) -- Former Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh has appointed a lawyer to study what action to take over a statement that maintenance of his Proton Perdana V6 Executive was highest among the State Executive Council (Exco) members.
His special officer Kamarulazman Idris said the move was necessary as the statement had tarnished the reputation of Idris, the State Assemblyman for Jerteh.
He said although the state government had apologised, the statement showed that the Terengganu leadership had acted in haste without thinking of the consequences.
"Terengganu people are confused by the claim that the maintenance of Idris' Proton Perdana V6 Executive when he was the Menteri Besar was the highest," he said in a statement Friday.
Kamarulzaman said the issue should not be politicised as it could tarnish Idris' image especially when he was away and could not reply.

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has clarified that the 14 Mercedes E200 Kompressors purchased by the Terengganu government for RM3.43mil would be used for visiting foreign dignitaries.
He said that this was the decision he reached with Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak after speaking with Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said on Thursday.
Earlier Friday, Ahmad said, "We (Abdullah and Najib) reached a consensus on the matter during the meeting at Putra World Trade Centre (on Thursday). The matter has been solved."
The Terengganu government was criticised recently after it purchased 14 Mercedes E200 Kompressors for RM3.43mil.
Ahmad said both leaders have told him that the matter is solved and should be laid to rest.
Combative as ever the Terengganu MB stood his ground. "Pugnacious" is one of the two words for me to sum up this fellow. The other one is "nitwit". Regardless of what have been said, he would not resign to the fact that such purchases were wasteful and not in accordance with the prescribed government rules & regulations.
Over lunch today when asked by one of my client about this issue, I was at loss for words. What is there for me to say? Despite being reprimanded by the cabinet, he's just not buying it. He retaliated with flimsy reasons together with unsubstantiated, uncorroborated and caustic examples and justifications, one after the other (the last being his predecessor's perdana v6's maintenance billings). Finally yesterday, as his latest salvo against the cabinet, he came out with his version of interpretation of a particular Treasury Circular.
He is one superhero indeed! Don't be surprised if he comes back after all this with Paklah's or Najib's car services bills and costings!
And that also goes to show how much control the Head Honcho of Malaysian government has currently and the level of respect that he commands. Despite all this, he is still impervious to pleas and signals by the rakyat and adamant as ever to give it a go as the PM for another 2 years.
I wonder why a Terengganu Exco Meeting was held in Kuala Lumpur's Le Meridien. Another cost-cutting measures by the state government, perhaps?
Nonetheless, it must be an awesome sight! A convoy of 14 brand new mercs coming all the way from KT to KL. Bila lagi mau try kereta baru! And the destination? The posh Le Meridien KL-lah to complement it all. Ada class-lah!
Anyway, how was the merc? Was the ride comfy and did you feel safe and secured enough , Datuk "MercSaid"?
It must be, after all it's a Merc, not some lousy Perdana V6!

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was released on police bail Thursday morning after having his statement recorded the night before, the Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said.
He was safely back at his home in Bukit Segambut in Kuala Lumpur by 10.05am.
Anwar's statement was taken down to facilitate police investigations into the report lodged on June 28 by his 23-year-old former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan alleging he had been sodomised by the PKR de facto leader.
Kudos to the authorities for finally getting their act together despite having started the whole affair on the wrong footing, balaclavas et al. Now let the law takes its course.
As expected, the motion of no confidence was rejected.

KUALA TERENGGANU 11 Julai – Pelbagai pihak diminta tidak mempertikaikan tempoh dua tahun peralihan kuasa Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi kepada timbalannya, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Naib Ketua Pergerakan Pemuda UMNO, Khairy Jamaluddin berkata, para pemimpin UMNO juga tidak sepatutnya mempersoalkan isu jangka masa itu kerana ia telah dipersetujui di antara Abdullah dan Najib.
Katanya, pelan peralihan kuasa berkenaan dilakukan secara tersusun dan mampu mengukuhkan lagi parti.- Utusan.
Jika dikenangkan usia setahun jagung di dalam kepimpinan UMNO orang yang memberi arahan ini dan kepada siapa "arahan" ini ditujukan, jelas perbedaan langit dan bumi. Siapa yang pertikaikan? Semalam daripada coretan-coretan berita aliran perdana dan alternatif, yang saya kira nampak mempertikaikan atau bahasa yang lebih halus, "memberikan pandangan" alternatif mereka (bukan "saya sokong" semata) adalah antaranya Muhyiddin dan Ku Li.
Agak-agaknya apakah nombor keahlian UMNO kedua veteran UMNO ini jika dibandingkan dengan anak menantu Perdana Menteri ini? Mungkin jauh berjuta angka nombor-nombor siri keahlian kedua-dua pemimpin UMNO daripada saudara Khairy Jamaluddin ini.
"Pelbagai pihak" itu pula siapa? Saya tidak mahu menganggap bahawa arahan itu adalah kepada kami, orang-orang di luar UMNO. Itu boleh menimbulkan amarah kami pacal-pacal rakyat yang hina ini! Itu tidak elok untuk tujuan pemulihan UMNO di kaca mata kami, bukan?
Jadi, adakah ianya ditujukan kepada ahli-ahli di peringkat akar-umbi? Maaf saya bertanya, inikah yang dikatakan "demokrasi" ala-UMNO jika ahli-ahli dan pemimpin adalah dilarang untuk menyuarakan pendapat?
Jika Muhkriz menegur pemimpin nombor wahid UMNO dianggap biadap, apa pula kategori "arahan" atau lebih tepat lagi tempelakan si KJ ini terhadap para seniornya yang masing-masing merupakan Naib Presiden dan mantan Naib Presiden UMNO?
Adakah wujud dua set peraturan ataupun perlaksaan peraturan dan tata-tertib di dalam UMNO? Satu set undang-undang dan peraturan untuk ahli seperti Mukhriz dan satu set lagi untuk ahli seperti Khairy?
Mungkin ahli-ahli UMNO boleh membantu saya dalam menjawab persoalan-persoalan ini. Maafkan saya kerana jahil dalam perkara ini, saya bukan ahli UMNO.
Kita faham dua tahun satu masa yang singkat. Jadi terdapat keperluan untuk bergegas dalam menonjolkan diri sebagai "wira". Tetapi janganlah sampai seperti "mengarah" orang yang lebih tua dan lebih tinggi pangkatnya daripada kita.
Tidak manis begitu. Kita orang timur, kaya dengan adab dan sopan.
