Keputusan perbicaraan kes Fitnah 2 Ketua Umum KEADILAN,Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim yang akan diketahui akhir bulan ini akan menentukan masa depan demokrasi dan halatuju politik di Malaysia.

Naib Ketua AMK Pusat, Fahmi Fadzil berkata, dalam jangka masa sebelum keputusan mahkamah diumumkan, seluruh media dunia akan memberi perhatian terhadap Malaysia untuk melihat sama ada demokrasi di negara ini semakin sihat atau bertambah tenat.

“Dalam dua minggu setengah yang akan datang ini, tatkala rakyat mendepani hari-hari harga minyak dan harga barang yang semakin naik tetapi gaji terus mendatar, berserta cukai GST yang bakal dimulakan April 2015, masa depan demokrasi dan halatuju politik di Malaysia akan ditentukan.

An MCA leader has cautioned a divisional Umno official against “crossing the line” in suggesting that next month’s Umno annual general assembly should discuss ending the Chinese vernacular school system.

MCA religious harmony bureau chief Datuk Ti Lian Ker said that Petaling Jaya Utara Umno division deputy chief Mohamad Azli Mohemed Saad should accept with an open heart the reminder that he gave him as it was in good faith.

“It is in my interest to caution politicians like Azli who are out to score political brownie points by picking on Chinese education, Chinese culture and who want to use the community as a ‘punching bag’,” he said.

Menteri Belia dan Sukan, Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar menyifatkan cadangan penyenaraian peminjam tegar Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN) dalam Sistem Maklumat Rujukan Kredit Berpusat (CCRIS) adalah langkah yang 'masuk akal'.

Menurut Khairy, cadangan tersebut yang mensasarkan 183,486 individu yang langsung tidak membuat sebarang pembayaran pinjaman walaupun sudah melewati alam pekerjaan dalam tempoh yang lama, adalah relevan.

"Saya rasa cadangan terkini daripada PTPTN ini masuk akal. Lain lah kalau grad baru yang susah nak cari kerja menjadi sasaran," ujar Khairy menerusi laman sosial Facebook miliknya.

The fate of MH370 is "downright suspicious" and the Malyasia Airlines jumbo may not even be in the Southern Indian Ocean, according to Emirates chief Tim Clark.

Clark called for every "fact" about the tragedy to be challenged as investigators comb an area of the southern Indian Ocean seabed. He also voiced concern that efforts to get the truth might slacken, leading MH370 to become an unsolved mystery.

In a frank interview with German magazine Der Spiegel, Clark raised significant doubts about the official version of events, according to which MH370 flew over the Indian Ocean on autopilot until it ran out of fuel and crashed in to the sea.
