NOW that the Prime Minister had duly wedded Jeanne Abdullah, who according to a Bernama report, is duly referred to as “Datin Seri”, I would like to formally join other well wishers in wishing them “selamat pengantin baru”.
I don’t think any of us should miss this opportunity. Peluang sebegini tidak berlaku setiap hari, setiap bulan atau setiap tahun. It’s not everyday that our PM gets married.
As I have said in my brief comment in the comment window of the previous posting, “saya setuju 100 peratus” with his decision to remarry.
But I had not posted this interesting event earlier because I wanted to be absolutely sure that the marriage took place. There had been previous occasions when the PM cancelled important events at the last minute on the pretext that he was too busy to attend.
This is what I said in the comment window, which I would now like to share with the rest of the visitors. It was posted on June 8. I said:
“Saya setuju 100 peratus asalkan ia tidak mengganggu tugas PM sebagai pentadbir nombor satu negara dan membazirkan wang negara. PM has his household vote and for as long as he keeps within the allocated budget, we should not have any problem with his wedding.
"Of course this is a unique situation. This is the first time in our Merdeka history that the PM marries while in office. We also take note of the fact that his previous wife, Kak Endon, passed away when he is in office.
"He needs companion, and marriage dismisses whatever suspicion we may have of his private life. We should be happy for him and his bride-to-be. Let's hope that she becomes a worthy companion to the PM; someone who brings him credit and NOT causing him discredit. Pak Lah chooses her and we elected Pak Lah. That's the deal.”
With so many “songel” wives of ministers and other pembesar (VIPs) causing constant headache and indignation among the rakyat, it is important that we remind our pembesar that we elected them and NOT their spouses.
Kita pilih mereka sebagai wakil kita di Parlimen dan Dewan Undangan Negeri. Kita tidak pilih isteri, anak, menantu atau konco-konco mereka. Itu pilihan peribadi mereka.
Menurut Bernama, kenyataan Jabatan Perdana Menteri yang dikeluarkan kepadanya menyatakan bahawa PM dan Jeanne diijabkabulkan oleh Imam Masjid Putrajaya, Abd Manaf Mat, pada pukul 2.50 petang.
Antara yang hadir adalah anak lelaki PM, Kamaluddin dan menantu lelakinya, Khairy Jamaluddin. Laporan Bernama tidak menyebut mengenai Nori, anak perempuan PM yang berupa isteri kepada Khairy.
According to Bernama, the PM and his wife thanked the people for their good wishes for a happy marriage.
Walaupun laporan Bernama tidak menyebut mengenai Nori, laporan akhbar arus perdana hari ini menunjukkan bahawa dia hadir majlis itu. Maaf.
