Why don't the gov in every countries dare to come out and declare their (and all their family members including sibling's familes) assets/net worth before taking office, and on a yearly basis?

Is there a real corruption free gov?

Readers of popular Malaysian news site favour ex-premier Mahathir for PM
Reuters ReutersMay 25, 2017


KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - More than two-thirds of readers of a liberal-leaning Malaysian news site have backed former premier Mahathir Mohamad to be prime minister, the portal said on Thursday.

Mahathir, 92, served as prime minister for 22 years, earning a reputation as a no-nonsense authoritarian with little time for dissenters promoting liberal values.

But he has recently emerged as a prominent critic of Prime Minister Najib Razak, a former protégé who last year became ensnared in controversy over a multi-billion dollar financial scandal at a state fund.

Najib has denied any wrongdoing.

Mahathir's criticism of the prime minister has endeared him to voters who in the past would have shunned both of them.

Malaysiakini.com news portal, which is often accused by government supporters of favouring the opposition, found in a poll that 69.9 percent of its readers would support Mahathir as opposition candidate for prime minister.

Malaysia is due to hold a general election by April next year. The opposition has yet to name its candidate, citing a need to avoid infighting between allied parties.

Malaysia's most prominent opposition politician, Anwar Ibrahim, is in prison serving five years for a sodomy conviction that he says was politically motivated.

Mahathir, who stepped down as prime minister in 2003, was not immediately available for comment.

He told Reuters in an interview in March he had no desire to return as prime minister but would be willing to serve as an adviser.

Malaysia's longest-serving prime minister quit the ruling United Malays National Organisation party last year in response to the graft allegations surrounding Najib.

Mahathir has formed a new party and joined an opposition coalition aiming to oust Najib.

The prime minister has weathered the calls to step down and is expected to call an early election this year to capitalise on disarray within the opposition.

According to the Malaysian Digital Association, which tracks top websites, Malaysiakini is Malaysia's second most popular news website, with nearly 700,000 unique visitors in March.

The portal conducted the survey from May 19 for six days.

About a quarter of the 12,777 people surveyed disagreed with idea of Mahathir for prime minister, it said.

Survey shows Najib leads as next PM choice at 31pc, Anwar at 8pc
The Malay Mail Online
By Ida Lim
The Malay Mail OnlineMay 24, 2017


SUNGAI BESI, May 24 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak remains the top choice to be the next prime minister at 31 per cent while his key political rival Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim only scored a miserly 8 per cent support in the latest survey of 17,962 voters carried out by a PKR-linked outfit.

In the latest survey by the Invoke Centre for Policy Initiatives, 5,568 respondents chose the Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman when given 10 names to pick from as the country's next prime minister.

While the survey data showed Anwar as the most popular out of all nine Opposition leaders listed for the top post, the 1,462 voters who named him translated as a whole to 8 per cent.

Other Opposition leaders in terms of popularity as the next PM are PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang with 6.1 per cent out of 17,962 voters, followed by Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (5.7 per cent), PPBM president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (4.4 per cent), PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli (3.7 per cent), PPBM deputy president Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir (2.9 per cent), PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (1.6 per cent), PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali (1.2 per cent) and PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar (0.9 per cent).

Out of the 17,962 nationwide respondents interviewed through randomised phone calls determined by a computer system, about 34 per cent or 6172 did not answer on who they would want to be the prime minister.

Anwar's appeal to all ethnicities

Invoke’s principal Rafizi, who presented the findings, attributed Anwar's popularity over other Opposition politicians for the PM post to the latter’s appeal that cuts across all ethnic groups.

Hadi emerged as the top choice among Malays surveyed, at 29 per cent, followed by Dr Mahathir (18 per cent), Muhyiddin (15 per cent), Anwar (14 per cent), Mukhriz (12 per cent), Rafizi (6 per cent), Azmin (4 per cent), Dr Wan Azizah (1 per cent) while Nurul Izzah received no mention.

On the other hand, Anwar was the most popular choice for PM among the ethnic Chinese at 35 per cent, followed by Rafizi (19 per cent), Dr Mahathir and Dr Wan Azizah both at 12 per cent, Muhyiddin (9 per cent), Nurul Izzah (7 per cent), while Azmin and Mukhriz tied at 3 per cent each. None within this racial demographic chose Hadi.

Anwar was also the clear favourite among ethnic Indians at 68 per cent, followed by Muhyiddin (15 per cent), Rafizi (7 per cent), Dr Mahathir tied with his son Mukhriz at 4 per cent, Azmin at 2 per cent and the rest received no mentions.

Noting that he would not be standing in elections, Rafizi said he had included his name to provide a "benchmark" on how voters would react to an issue-based politician like him.

DAP, Amanah excluded?

When asked why the two other Pakatan Harapan parties of DAP and Parti Amanah Negara were not included, Rafizi said the survey had to be done in an economical way by taking into account those who were likely to have an impact on who will be the next PM.

"Hypothetically in the case of DAP, the PM is politically acceptable to come from Malay leaders and there is no Malay leaders from DAP of the standing of Anwar Ibrahim or Tun Mahathir or Muhyiddin Yassin or Hadi Awang to be included," he said.

Amanah was similarly not included despite having senior Malay leaders as the chances of it winning more seats than PKR was low, he said.

“Even if there is an Amanah leaders who scores within that band, when you take into account all the other factors and statistical findings from others, the chances that it has an impact to the question of who is going to be the next PM is actually quite low,” he said, stressing that the exclusion of the two parties is not due to assumptions of their leaders' popularity.

Rafizi said the interaction with the I-CPI respondents over the phone allowed them to name alternative opposition politicians for the PM post, but said the number of those who chose to do so was too low to be statistically significant.

Comparison with PPBM survey

When asked about the differing results between the I-CPI survey and a PPBM survey last year, Rafizi said the two polls are not comparable due to the different survey periods.

He noted that the PPBM survey was conducted immediately after Muhyiddin's sacking from Umno and before PPBM was formed.

"The political scenario has completely changed, Bersatu is now in Pakatan and PAS has severed its ties,” he said, referring to PPBM by its other moniker Bersatu.

The Invoke survey was carried out between February 6 and May 23 this year.

In a previous similar survey by PPBM carried out between July and August last year, Muhyiddin was the top choice to be PM at 37.3 per cent of the 2,881 polled, followed by Dr Mahathir (35.9 per cent), Hadi (34.3 per cent), Mukhriz (32 per cent), then PAS youth chief Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz (30.8 per cent). Anwar was in the sixth place at 27 per cent.

The PPBM survey done through face-to-face interviews involved 17 politicians from seven political parties, namely Amanah, DAP, PAS, PKR, PPBM, Umno and Parti Warisan Sabah.

The PPBM survey respondents' ethnic composition is reportedly Malay (67.6 per cent), Chinese (23 per cent), Indians (5.6 per cent) and Sabah and Sarawak natives (3.7 per cent).

Najib's performance and popularity

In the two-question Invoke survey, the first question all respondents were asked was whether or not they agreed with what Najib was doing as the prime minister.

In the measure of satisfaction with Najib's performance, those who agreed and disagreed was equally split at 44 per cent each, while 12 per cent said they did not know.

Among all the Chinese and Indian respondents polled, the same trend was reflected.

For the Malay respondents, 49 per cent said they agreed while 39 per cent disagreed.

Rafizi said the Invoke survey has a margin error of 2 per cent, with the computer system ensuring phone calls were made to be representative of the country's voter distribution according to gender, ethnicity, age and state.

The 17,962 respondents were largely Malay at 12,114 or 68 per cent, followed by the Chinese at 2,710 (15 per cent), Indians at 1,674 (9 per cent), Sabah and Sarawak Bumiputera at 1,464 or 8 per cent.
