Penang International Airport In A State Of Distress
With reference to our earlier conversation, I wish to bring your attention to the above subject.
In the last two to three weeks, the Penang International Airport has been in a state of severe distress. This is due to three reasons:
1. The RM250 million airport expansion project is behind schedule.
2. The works being carried out are defective, resulting in not only leakages but also flooding. Whenever it rains, it will flood not only outside but up to one inch inside the airport terminal.
3. This problem is causing massive disturbance and inconvenience to countless airport users, affecting not only their travel convenience but worse, also damaging their luggage.
I am sure YB Minister will agree that it is an extreme embarrassment to the country to have one inch of water floating inside the terminal of an international airport. As the airport is the first impression people get of Penang and in many cases, of Malaysia, I strongly urge YB Minister to intervene directly to resolve this problem.
This shameful situation is extremely serious and reveals a systemic failure in the whole project. It is therefore imperative that YB Minister take immediate action on this matter, and if possible to visit and see for yourself the sad and shameful state of affairs at the Penang International Airport.
I have attached a few photos along with this letter as stark proof of how bad the situation is.
This is a matter of national concern, and I sincerely hope that you will treat this it seriously and with grave importance.

Chief Minister of Penang
[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]
WEAK! And a waste of a Chief Minister’s mandate. This strawman airport nonsense is to be addressed by the EXCO, not the CM glory hogging on useless items to make DAP a useless party and by extension Pakatan a useless coaltion already peopled by term limitless nepotists. Penang can have no airport but with the below listed 3 items :
1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.
;that Malaysia will be better for. Anyone would sacrifice Penang Airport for the above 3 items which are more useful.
Heres the REAL LETTER – the right minded and UNHCR worthy REWRITE and ‘parallel post’ of letter via Word Press : Properly written to address priorities of the minorities the above ‘waste of time’ letter should read as follows :

Malaysian Minorities In A State Of Distress
With reference to our future conversation, I wish to bring your attention to the above subject.
In the last two to three decades, the Malaysian Minorities have been in a state of severe distress. This is due to three reasons lacking for the Malaysian Minorites:
1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism is lacking behind schedule
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. Resulting in not only racism but also apartheid.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. affecting not only their living convenience but worse, also damaging their sense of citizenship.
I am sure YB Prime Minister will agree that it is an extreme embarrassment to the country to have 2 clases of citizenship inside the constitution of an international airport. As the airport is the first impression people get of Penang and in many cases, of Malaysia, I strongly urge YB Minister to intervene directly to resolve this problem.
This shameful situation is extremely serious and reveals a systemic failure in the whole nation. It is therefore imperative that YB Prime Minister take immediate action on this matter, and if possible to visit and see for yourself the sad and shameful state of affairs of the Malaysian Minorities.
I have not attached photos along with this letter as no stark proof of how bad the situation is can be communicated in pictures.
This is the matter of national concern, and I sincerely hope that you will treat this it seriously and with grave importance.
Chief Minister (of the Real Issue – Ending Apartheid and Obtaining Equality)
Sultan’s approval sought for Kedah Pas duo – Friday, 09 March 2012 13:09
Sultan’s approval sought for two Pas leaders to be Kedah state executive councillors
MENTERI Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak has submitted the names of Datuk Phahrolrazi Zawawi and Datuk Dr Ismail Salleh to be re-appointed as the state executive councillors.
The two names were presented to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah, who is also sultan of Kedah, for approval yesterday. Azizan arrived at 4.50pm at the Istana Anak Bukit, near here, and spent about 50 minutes during his audience with Tuanku Abdul Halim.
The re-appointment of Phahrolrazi and Dr Ismail, in accordance with Pas central working committee’s directive, was part of the party’s solution to resolve the power struggle between Azizan and the two former councillors.
“I’ve already submitted their names to the sultan but he has yet to give his consent on their re-appointments,” said Azizan.
When asked when the swearing-in ceremony for the duo, who were dropped from the 2012-2013 councillors’ line-up, would take place, Azizan said he was not unsure. “It depends on the palace.”
The duo’s tenure as state executive councillors for the 2010-2011 term expired on Wednesday.
They had previously rejected re-appointments as state executive councillor, which is done on a yearly basis, during the swearing-in ceremony on Feb 28 citing differences with Azizan.
Azizan had accepted the duo’s decision and went on to appoint five Pas leaders as Kedah executive councillors and left two posts vacant to be filled on a later date. The crisis between Azizan and Phahrolrazi and Dr Ismail, who are alleged to have spearheaded the power struggle, had created waves in Pas and its senior leaders held two central working committee meetings to find a solution to settle the issue.
The solution reached was for Azizan to remain as menteri besar until his term expires and a steering committee would be set up to monitor his performance.
Speculation has it that the duo would be given less prominent portfolios in the state executive line-up.
They are expected to take up a few of the five portfolios which have yet to be filled up after the menteri besar named his new exco line-up last week.
The portfolios — agriculture and agro-based industries; industry, in vestment and biotechnology; rural development and poverty eradication; science and innovation and entrepreneur development — are expected to be split between Phahrolrazi and Dr Ismail.
Sources said Phahrolrazi would not be given back the housing and local government, works and water supply, water resources and energy portfolio as it had been assigned to Datuk Amiruddin Hamzah.
Dr Ismail was previously the exco member in charge of health, non- governmental organisations, human capital, science and innovation, information technology and communications.

The Sultan’s approval being sought for Kedah Pas duo would be best amended, on the Sultan’s own initiative (what other way is there unless so many VIPs do rally behind the issue and petition politely) and perhaps via some Constitutional or Democratic studies trained academic’s recommendation, to a minimum 66.6% quorum by the people, district by district for each individual councillor instead. The popular vote method, and Sultan’s willingness to allow the people to choose will make for a more well loved and democracy reliant Royal Institution.
