Assalamualaikum and Peace be upon all of you
Welcome to my blog

It has been a long time since the last time I post an article regarding politics in my blog. Don’t get me wrong, this is not a politics portal and I don’t have any intentions to change this blog into one. The only reason I do it is because I just wants to share my intentions and thoughts after the ended of UMNO General Assembly. In not so distance future, two by-elections will be held at Batu Sapi Parliamentary Seating and Galas State Assembly Seating. We have two political alliances National Front and People’s Pact, housing numbers of political parties. But, these two parties usually never fail to get my intentions, UMNO and PAS. And up until now, these two parties is the only party that I will cast my vote too. (Nevertheless, your vote is a secret… huhuhu…)

UMNO (United Malay National Organization)

Sang Saka Bangsa

The history of UMNO is divided into two parts, The Old and New UMNO. New UMNO is founded by the Prime Minister of Malaysia at that time, Datuk Seri Mahathir Mohamad on 11th February 1988, with a new party greatly resemblance to the former one, the old UMNO. The old UMNO which been established on 11th May 1946 at Istana Besar Johor Bahru has been declared unlawful by Justice Datuk Harun Hashim under Societies Act of 1966 on 4th February 1988 (due to existence of several unregistered branches). Later, the suffix “Baru (New)” at the new UMNO was dropped and UMNO (baru) became the de facto and de jure successor of UMNO (with the old UMNO’s asset handed over).

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak
President of UMNO

Since Malayan General Elections in 1955, UMNO has been an alliance to both MCA and MIC up to date. Currently, UMNO is the de facto leader of National Front, coalition consists of 13 political parties. The incumbent leader of UMNO is Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. All Prime Ministers of Malaysia to date is from UMNO. Johor is one of the strongholds of UMNO.

PAS (Parti Islam Se-Malaysia)

PAS's Official Flag

It is not perfect to speak about UMNO if we forgot about PAS. The history of PAS (Parti Islam Se-Malaysia) shares many similarities with UMNO, as it is originally the Ulama’ wings of UMNO. Later, after the party’s constitution amendment, it’s participating in the first General Election in 1955 and won 1 seat. PAS currently is the most senior opposition party exists in Malaysia. It is founded by 4th April 1956 as Pan-Malayan Islamic Party (PMIP). Later, in the time of Asri Muda, the party’s name change to Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS) and known as Islamic Party of Malaysia in English rather than its previous name.

Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang
President of PAS

Similar to UMNO, the party is the first party in the history of Malaysia to defeat the ruling National Front and alliances in state level. PAS has associated itself to many political alliances, namely Barisan Nasional, Gagasan Rakyat, Barisan Alternatif and the most success up to date, Pakatan Rakyat. Even though have a parliamentary seats lower than DAP and PKR, it is undoubtedly the most dominant political party in Pakatan Rakyat. The party's stronghold is Kelantan.
