Condolence message to the family of Jamaluddin Jarjis by Penang Chief Minister, DAP Secretary-General and MP for Bagan Lim Guan Eng on 5th April 2015 in Kuala Lumpur

Ferocious War Room Political Strategist But With A Heart

The untimely and tragic death of Tan Sri Dr. Jamaluddin Jarjis in a helicopter crash last night in Semenyih has definitely shocked the nation. JJ as he is popularly known will be sorely missed.

JJ is no ordinary Member of Parliament. In his 25 years of parliamentary career since 1990, he has headed various government-linked corporations such as Tenaga Nasional Berhad and PR1MA. JJ held 3 different ministerial portfolios, as well as spent considerable time on the foreign policy front, as Malaysia’s Ambassador to the United States with ministerial rank.

Jamaluddin’s resume is certainly the envy of many of his parliamentary colleagues. Perhaps his most important role was to serve as the most trusted political operator of Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Najib Razak as Najib’s war room chief strategist. Even though he was the Chief Strategist of Najib’s war room, he had a heart for all, including the opposition.

I will always remember him as a smiling warrior, willing to negotiate to work out some compromise. We may political opponents, but we never doubted each other’s loyalty to Malaysia and were willing to have friendly and reasoned discourse.

As a fellow MP and on behalf of the DAP, I offer my deepest condolence to his family, as well as the family of other passengers on the ill-fated helicopter.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2015年4月5日在吉隆坡向已故加玛鲁丁发表慰唁:

凶悍却平易近人的政治战略谋士

丹斯里加玛鲁丁昨晚在士毛月的直升机坠机事故中不幸身亡,突如其来的悲剧让全国震惊。大家都将想念这位向来被称为JJ的同僚。

JJ不是普通的国会议员。他自1990年开始了国会议员的政治生涯,他领导过无数个官联机构比如:国能及PR1MA。JJ担任过三个不同的部长职位,也曾以部长身份出任我国驻美国大使时,站在国际政策的前线。

加玛鲁丁的履历肯定让许多国会同僚羡慕。或许,他最重要的角色是成为首相拿督斯里纳吉政治战略团队里最信任的谋士。虽然身为纳吉政治战略室的主要谋士,他平易近人,对待在野党人士也一样。

我会记得他是一个经常微笑的战士,他愿意通过谈判、妥协解决问题。我们虽然是政敌,但是我们从未怀疑过彼此对马来西亚的忠诚,我们也愿意在友好及讲理的情况下就事论事。

做为一名国会议员,我谨代表民主行动党,向JJ的家属以及失事直升机上其他死者的家属表达慰问。

林冠英
