1st task of “100 Days to Putrajaya” Campaign – prove UMNO/BN prophets of doom wrong with ringing/powerful endorsement by 16th DAP NC for Karpal-Guan Eng leadership to lead DAP in the PR battle for Putrajaya in 13GE


The UMNO/Barisan Nasional propagandists have been working overtime to forecast various doomsday scenarios for DAP, Pakatan Rakyat and the country in the run-up to the 13th general elections, as for instance, warning of a repetition of May 13 racial clashes, chaos and even Malaysia becoming bankrupt and be like Greece in three years if UMNO/Barisan Nasional is replaced by Pakatan Rakyat in Putrajaya.

It is almost five years since the Pakatan Rakyat formed the state governments in Penang, Selangor and Kedah and over 22 years since PAS captured the Kelantan state government. Have there been May 13 racial clashes in the Pakatan Rakyat states or have they gone bankrupt?

If Pakatan Rakyat rule is such a disaster, Datuk Seri Najib Razak would not have to undergo the two-year agony of repeatedly postponing the date for the 13th general elections because of his lack of confidence that UMNO/BN would get a renewed mandate to continue to govern Malaysia.

There would also have been no need for Najib to resort to undemocratic and unconstitutional means to mount an illegal coup d’etat to grab power from the duly-elected Pakatan Rakyat state government in Perak in February 2009, a result which the people of Perak are determined to reverse by restoring Perak state to Pakatan Rakyat in the 13th general elections.

The UMNO/BN leaders and propagandists must be told in no uncertain terms to stop their various false doomsday scenarios for the people and the country if they truly love Malaysia.

Just as Kelantan had not gone bankrupt after more than 22 years of PAS rule and Penang, Selangor and Kedah have not gone bankrupt after nearly five years of Pakatan Rakyat state governments, but in fact chalking up a better record than Barisan Nasional both in good governance and promoting the people’s welfare, Malaysia will not become bankrupt after three years.

On the contrary, under PR governance, Malaysia will be set on a new growth path to lead to greater prosperity and justice for all Malaysians for the country, not only because of an end to corruption, cronyism and abuses of power but because Malaysia will be governed by leaders whose first priority is the best interests of all Malaysians and the country rather than of themselves and their cronies.

There cannot be another repetition of May 13 racial clashes in the country, for if anything untoward and unfortunate happens after the 13GE, it will not be clashes between Malays and Chinese, but Malays versus Malays or even Malaysians versus Malaysians with each side led by Malays.

Is Najib prepared to come forward to give an assurance to the nation that such an eventuality would not happen, as Malaysia is wedded to the system of parliamentary democracy and UMNO/BN committed to the goal of making Malaysia the “world’s best democracy” – which must be preceded by the onset of a two-party or two-coalition democratic system?

Najib’s most quoted saying since becoming Prime Minister is that “the era the government knows best is over”, but this is also his most violated pledge.

Up to now, despite repeated questions in Parliament and outside, Najib has refused to give a public pledge that he would fully honour the spirit of “the era the government knows best is over” and that if it is the verdict of the 13 million electorate in the 13GE for a change of federal government in Putrajaya, he and UMNO would respect the verdict as well as giving a solemn undertaking to ensure a peaceful transition of power to Pakatan Rakyat.

If Najib truly believes that “the era the government knows best is over”, he should issue a directive to all UMNO/BN leaders to stop their various false doomsday scenarios for the country and people and end all their politics of lies, hate and fear against Pakatan Rakyat.

In the “100 Days to Putrajaya”, as the 13GE will fall in the next 100 days, DAP and PR must dismantle and debunk the various false and nefarious doomsday scenarios foisted by the UMNO/BN propagandists to frighten Malaysian voters from exercising their historic right and responsibility to usher a change of federal government for the first time in the nation’s 55 year history.

The demolition and debunking of the doomsday scenarios must begin from the 16th DAP National Congress this weekend – with the first task for DAP delegates to prove UMNO/BN prophets of doom wrong with a ringing and powerful endorsement for the Karpal-Guan Eng leadership to lead DAP in the PR battle for Putrajaya in 13GE and to put to rest the lies and falsehoods spread by UMNO/BN propagandists in their attempt to split the DAP national leadership.

    “..Up to now, despite repeated questions in Parliament and outside, Najib has refused to give a public pledge that he would fully honour the spirit of “the era the government knows best is over” and that if it is the verdict of the 13 million electorate in the 13GE for a change of federal government in Putrajaya, he and UMNO would respect the verdict as well as giving a solemn undertaking to ensure a peaceful transition of power to Pakatan Rakyat.”..

    The problem is it is not up to Najib to make that pledge. Or, at least he is honest enough to know he cannot make that pledge because he knows very well that there are forces more powerful than him that will unleash chaos should BN lose GE13. These are the people who has vested interest and who has everything to lose including their freedom or even be charged for crimes including murder. And particularly UMNO, as a political party, could become history if BN loses. And the fact that May 13 has been repeatedly being brought up recently clearly indicates that similar actions are being contemplated.

    ///1st task of “100 Days to Putrajaya” Campaign – prove UMNO/BN prophets of doom wrong…///

    Agreed. But beware of falling into narcissism (自我陶醉, too much admiration for your own abilities) like what Umno/BN did in their recent General Assembly.

    Let us see what happens this weekend first, whether the DAP comes out stronger or weaker.

    Then this 100 days thing will become a bit more certain or not.

    By UMNO/bn past (hookwink) tactics, they will not response responsibly – in particular, since Dr.Madhater’s time whom always maintain a smarta$$ attitude. The best counter action is to list all the ‘swindle cases’ and wrong doings, etc with pertinent details done by them. All these past cases must be listed in writing to have a long lasting impact and distributed in all corners of the country. These are ACTUAL records verses what they postulate (half-baked, desperados)

    UMNO/Barisan National’s demonisation and vilification of the Pakatan Rakyat and the scare tactics will end only on election day. I doubt those with an analytical mind will be swayed by their propaganda onslaught. UMNO has talked much less now about the possibility of May 13 happening again should BN lose in the next GE because they know it is going to boomerang.

    Pakatan Rakyat, please promise the rakyat that you will leave no stone unturned to find Altantuya’s real killer/s when you are the Federal government that there is still law & order in the country.

    Najib cannot be elected PM with Scopene submarine deal and Alantuya murder case hanging over him and many Umno b top guys do not want him also
    It was Mahathir teaching him how to divert attention and first one….sodomy 2 on Anwar…wasted two years.
    2 more years on so many stunts and now 13th GE must be held by April next year…out come the real issues again… Scopene and Alantuya.
    The next three months will be intresting for Malaysians to learn and observe ,,,Truths always win,

    A 100 days more to 13th GE and now the carpet dealer Deepak is confronting Najib and Rosmah on Mongol girl’s death issues.
    5 flue to HongKong to talk money laundering with new evidences.
    250 million…to buy cows..only 4 cows were seen.
    French lawyers linked Scopene deal to Najib.
    Back on my mind….poor Teoh Beng Hock’s and Kugan’s death plus few more in police stations not cared for by Najib at all.
    Najib has proven to be a liar on many issues.
    Will his swearing at the mosque be proven a side show?

    When I see youths of voting age, working for the ‘Ah Longs’, putting name cards on car windscreens and so on, and asked if they have registered to vote? Their reply is, ‘NO’.
    I read in the Star that registration will close by end of this month, 30th Dec..
    Why not ask your working committee task force to make calls to all the ‘Ah long’ phone numbers found on the cards and hand bills, appealing to them to tell their boys to register b4 the last day.
    This is the last dash to the 100 days finishing line.
