BN leaders – grow up and accept ups and downs of democratic process

(Media Conference Statement by DAP Parliamentary Candidate for Ipoh Timor Lim Kit Siang at DAP Ipoh Timor Ops Centre on Thursday, 6th March 2008 at 12 noon)

Tomorrow is the last day for campaigning before the country goes to polls for the 12th general election on Saturday, March 8, 2008.
Will March 8, 2008 usher a paradigm shift in the Malaysian political landscape by stripping the Barisan Nasional of its unbroken two-thirds parliamentary majority and deal a fatal blow to Umno political hegemony?

It is a tall order just to deny the Barisan Nasional two-thirds parliamentary majority on Saturday, for the DAP, PKN and PAS will each have to win at least 25 seats to ensure that the BN is defeated in at least 75 parliamentary seats, the “magic figure” to make BN’s two-third parliamentary majority and Umno political hegemony history in Malaysia.

A strong and powerful wind of change is blowing in the land, as evidenced by the mammoth ceramah crowds, enthusiastic responses and generous donations of Malaysians in the various states – with crowds of several thousands to more than 10,000 in the ceramahs I attended in the past three days, covering Malacca, Negri Sembilan, Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Perak, with mammoth ceramah crowds also reported in Penang.

The question is whether the wind of change rising up in the land will be strong and powerful enough on March 8 to make it a day of history and a day of destiny for Malaysia.

The Barisan Nasional leadership had launched the general election campaign with a very cocky and arrogant start, with the Selangor, Malacca and Johore Barisan Nasional leaders declaring that they want to make their states “zero-opposition” states to recent panicky signs in certain BN quarters at the strong and powerful wind of change blowing in the land – causing Barisan Nasional propagandists to resort to the dirty politics of fear, intimidation and blackbail as making May 13 threats.

Let me advice all BN leaders and candidates: Grow up and accept the ups and down of the democratic process and stop being spoiled brats when at most the Barisan Nasional is losing two-thirds parliamentary majority and not losing power.

It is not going to be easy to deprive the Barisan Nasional of its two-thirds majority in Parliament by defeating the BN in at least 75 seats, but it is a goal which is definitely possible and achievable on March 8.

Former Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir does not see the BN losing its two-thirds majority on 8th March, as he has predicted that the BN would win between 70 to 75 per cent of the parliamentary seats in the 12th general election as compared to BN victory in over 90 per cent of the parliamentary seats in the 2004 general election.

If Mahathir is right, that BN would win 70 to 75 per cent of the parliamentary seats, this would work out to the opposition winning between 55 to 65 seats, which is a sizable increase from the 2004 general election of 21.

Tun Mahathir gave a very pertinent interview with Malaysiakini yesterday, where he said that the country needs an opposition that can hold up a mirror to the government.

Mahathir said: “I believe in an opposition. I have always maintained that this country needs an opposition and they should be critical of the government without which we don’t have a mirror to look at our faces. We think that we are very beautiful but it is the opposition that keeps telling us (that may not be true).

“You know the government member (of parliament), sometimes they are ‘ahli bodek’ (apple polishers). They are always saying ‘you’re right’, and you have no means of assessing whether you are going in the right direction or not.”

Mahathir said that it would be a “disaster” if the country “loses its opposition” as in Singapore.

I am glad that Mahathir, who had been the most controversial Prime Minister of Malaysia for 22 years, leading the country to some of its best achievements and worst crisis in key institutions of state, has fully realized the important and constructive role of the Opposition in the development of a viable and vibrant system of parliamentary democracy.

Is Abdullah prepared to agree with Mahathir and openly acknowledge the important role of the Opposition in the building of a healthy Malaysian democratic system, that it will be a disaster if there is no Opposition in Malaysia, and rein in the Umno “ultras” who have been talking about a zero-opposition in their states, with one Mentri Besar even claiming that he will not listen to the views of any DAP Assemblymen if they are elected!

Abdullah should educate all national and state leaders on the most rudimentary lessons in democracy. Lesson One – that without an Opposition, there can be no meaningful democracy. Lesson Two – Opposition leaders are even more patriotic than those in government, as they are prepared to risk their personal liberty and comfort to stand up for the rights of the people and the long-term interests of the nation, which could land them in detention.

When Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi took over the reins of government as the fifth Prime Minister, he had promised to be different and better than the Mahathir premiership.

I call on Abdullah to ensure that in the last 36 hours of the general election campaign, he will go out of his way to ensure that the 12th general election will be completely different from the previous nine general elections in being “May 13-free”, where the threat and spectre of May 13 if Opposition candidates are elected is not allowed to rear its ugly head to mar the election campaign.

Is Abdullah prepared to respond to this challenge to demonstrate that in 2008, Malaysian general elections are once-and-forever liberated from the spectre of May 13 threats, which is completely baseless as a denial of BN two-thirds parliamentary majority can only come about if there is strong representation of Malay, Chinese, Indian and even Kadazan-Dusun-Murut Opposition MPs.

A “May 13-free” election campaign will be a redeeming feature of the 12th general election, which has been further stained by the last-minute somersault of the Election Commission over the indelible ink issue – with the indelible ink fiasco becoming the indelible shame of the Election Commission.

    Trust me YB, Mahathir clearly understands the important and constructive role of the Opposition in the development of a viable and vibrant system of parliamentary democracy. That’s the reason he tried to suppress it in the first place.

    Without the indelible ink in place, buses load of voters will be busy at work to bring the opposition strong men down.

    Mr Lim, all the best to you and all other DAP candidates! As Tun Dr Mahathir had mentioned, Malaysia needs the Opposition to remind the government that they are not always that beautiful.

    the May 13 threats really works, My mom recently told my sister that she had been voting BN for the past elections because of the threats of May 13 and promises, she is now saying that she will VOTE FOR OPPOSITION now as she is no longer scared of this threat and know that BN dont fulfill their promises!!! TIME TO CHANGE!!!

    I am into my 8th general elections and I see that BN strategy, if you can call it that, is the same. Its archaic – development, new roads, clean drains, defend ‘your’ rights, what can DAP do, etc.
    The deny the opposition any space on TV and newspapers, not even the right of reply to allegations by BN.
    No, they will never grow up unless they end up as Opposition one day.

  10. #10 by showsomemercy on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 1:37 pm

    I really hope we the opposition can do it although the government cheat in the elections.

    We have to leave on. I still think if 10 votes for opposition and 1 for BN will do the trick although phantom voters are at large.

    So don’t waste your vote or have the mindset, aiyah one vote to the opposition also won’t win one…. Never!!! Every votes count and we Malaysians are counting on you all regardless Malay, Chinese or Indians for a better Malaysia.

    Hidup Malaysia for Malaysians!!!

    I haven’t been voting in the last 3 elections because I knew that the opposition will not win but this time around ,I will be bringing along my whole families to vote for the opposition even if the were to win or lose.
    So to the medias, especially the TV3, thanks for waking me up.
    Go ahead and sing all the Barisan tunes you want.

    no matter how many supports oppo have, we will loose. BN are good at that, by playing dirty to stay in power. what can we do…

    I have read of microchips being used in petrols and spray paints for identification purposes. They are so minute which cannot be seen with the naked eyes.The cancellation of the indelible ink will open the doors for the already pre-planned scams and the use of phantom voters. Perhaps DAP and PKR can propose the use of ink with these microchips to prevent fraud in the next GE.However on this election the opposition camp will have to keep both their eyes open to prevent the phantom voters to cast a vote.

  17. #17 by Jong on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 2:08 pm

    YB Lim, I hope you will take extra care and pep up your security. On mon 3 Mar08 night, Anwar Ibrahim’s young dedicated photographer, Salman Nasaruddin, under rather strange circumstances was hit by a still to be identified car near his home in PJ. He died in hospital the following morning.

    Again last night, William Leong’s driver – Mohd Hauri bin Kadim on his motorbike was hit on his way home after a late night ceramah. He now lies in critical condition in hospital. William Leong is PKR MP-designate for Selayang has requests that we pray for his speedy recover.

    Such heinous criminal acts, I hope the police will thoroughly investigate and arrest those “mafia” groups, than to go around breaking up election campaigns and struggling with pregnant woman speakers, caught on video!

    Campaigning and ceramahs are rights of the candidates and political parties within the SPR bylaws and I don’t think it is a threat to nation’s security? Go for those bastards that are having a gala time murdering innocent individuals! That’s what Police are paid for, to prevent crime.

    To deal with arrogant politician, one must be as arrogant or more arrogant than him/her to make change.

    Any ” criminal ” that threaten May13 to win votes should not hold a public office of trust, influence and power…..same goes with any leader who does not express their outrage and distance themselves from this dangerous behaviour.

    He, who can deceive the Tun ,can also deceive everyone of us, which includes his deputy or others.
    No one is smarter than any one, for he’ll will be deceive by someone of his very own kind when the times come.
    That’s the law of the universe!!!

    Majority Rule and Minority Rights
    All democracies are systems in which citizens freely make political decisions by majority rule. But rule by the majority is not necessarily democratic: No one, for example, would call a system fair or just that permitted 51 percent of the population to oppress the remaining 49 percent in the name of the majority. In a democratic society, majority rule must be coupled with guarantees of individual human rights that, in turn, serve to protect the rights of minorities–whether ethnic, religious, or political, or simply the losers in the debate over a piece of controversial legislation. The rights of minorities do not depend upon the goodwill of the majority and cannot be eliminated by majority vote. The rights of minorities are protected because democratic laws and institutions protect the rights of all citizens.

    VOTE DAP to protect our rights.

    The police needs to be overhaul!
    The ACA needs to be overhaul!
    The Judiciary system needs to be overhaul!
    The SPR needs to be overhaul!
    And even the PM needs to be overhaul!
    Most important is that every elected PM or ministers should be limited to a 5 years term.
    Bargaining is strictly prohibited!
    Vote for the opposition, if you agree!!!

  22. #22 by atom on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 2:31 pm

    I am so angry – with BN.
    A few of my friends who have been working as vote-counters for the last election just shared with me some info:-
    They were given a briefing before the actual day. During the briefing, they were told that any BN votes whereby the ‘X’ didn’t fit in the box nicely MUST be counted as a vote. However those with even a dot outside the box where the voter cast for the Opposition must immediately be treated as Undi Rosak.
    So appalling. I can’t believe this is Malaysia. So much for being a fair country!!!
    I really pray from the bottom of my heart that DAP scores big this round despite the double standard. BN is such a coward for not having the courage to face the REAL voice of the nation. They’d prefer to play dirty tricks and pretend that they were given the mandate by the people… when in actual they had to BUY the votes.
    Stupid bunch of BN clowns. So uncivilised.

    They say you can have an “out of body” experience when you undergo a major operation that was critical between life and death.

    Maybe Dr M had such an experience and is now willing to acknowledge that he too is responsible for the serious problems that the nation is now encountering. The message would have been clearer if he had persuaded his son to stand for the opposition.

  26. #26 by BoycottLocalPapers on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 2:42 pm

    Opposition parties lost so many times since May 13, 1969 but no riot and no “May 13.” But if UMNO lost, there will be May 13 and riots? Does that mean UMNO is the one who will cause this riot?

    PAS lost so many times but no riot. Look at what Niz Aziz said at if PAS lost Kelantan. So different than UMNO.

    “46 Ismail Ibrahims born in ’62 on EC’s rolls
    Fauwaz Abdul Aziz | Mar 6, 08 1:12pm
    There are 46 Ismail Ibrahims – all born in the year 1962 but registered as having different identity cards (IC) and living in 46 different localities – who have been registered to vote in various places throughout the country.

    Similarly, 14 Ismail Jusohs, all born in the year 1966 but hold different identity card numbers (IC) and registered as living in 14 different localities, have also been slated to vote.”
    Taken from Malaysiakini –

    Without the indelible ink there is no way to stop these crooks from going to different pre planned places to vote. DIRTY MAN!

    KLANG, March 6 (Bernama) — State constituencies which fall to the opposition in Selangor in Saturday”s election will face development problems as their elected representatives are not included in the state”s pre-council meetings, said Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo said. He said the three-day annual pre-council meeting was an important event as it was where assemblymen and state government officers, including from local governments and the land and district officers sat with the Menteri Besar to discuss problems and development of their respective constituencies. Mohamad Khir said opposition elected representatives were involved only in state legislative assembly meetings, which was not the arena to raise issues on infrastructure and public uilities. “Selangor does not discuss infrastructure or about potholes in the Assembly, but matters of more importance like the state goverment policies,” he said at a dinner organised by the Klang Chinese Tourism Association to introduce the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate for Sungai Pinang, Datuk Song Kee Chai, here last night. Mohamad Khir said he was sad with the condition in Sungai Pinang, which was lacking in development since the constituency came under the opposition. As such, he said, it was crucial for Sungai Pinang to have an elected representative from the BN for the constituency to also benefit from development projects carried out by the government. — BERNAMA

    This is sickening, does it mean BN (only) = Government = Malaysia? Anything non BN then it’s not Malaysian?

    Whether the constituency comes under BN/DAP/PAS/PKR or whatever party, the elected government must still SERVE the RAKYAT!!! I’m really so sick of all these gibberish. SO SICK!!!!!!!! Malaysia is a great country but it’s really disappointing that it’s being exploited in such a way. It’s so heartbreaking beyond words.

    Jong, if what you said is true, the opposition candidates and workers certainly have to be more vigilant and careful. I hope after the election, and when the results are announced, opposition candidates who win the election as well as their supporters will not be too jubilant in their celebration. Just be somber, knowing that you have the heavy responsibility ahead. I just don’t want any excuses for sore losers to start trouble. This is especially so for those fellows have never tasted defeat before.

    Just because they (BN) have never lost before doesn’t mean there can’t be a first time. The way things are going, it looks very shaky for BN and the younger generation of voters should give their full support for a change. Half a century is a long time!!!!!

  43. #43 by clear conscience on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 5:19 pm

    Tun Mahathir’s recent and past comments have to be read between the line. Being the former PM, his comments has meanings to explicitly sound out to BN that it’s time to say and sing the Opposition song of Enough Is Enough as well as to echo his displeasure at UMNO. He indirectly has advocated Malaysia needs the change so clearly and dearly mentioned in the DAP theme song, JUST CHANGE.

    His critics are definitely minced with sentiments for the party he so loves but also for those holding power in UMNO. It is a balancing two-tongue fork game for all that was spoken by him. On the one hand, he cannot be seen supporting the Opposition for the change Malaysia or rather Malaysians so dearly needed and the other hand he has still the deep love for UMNO.

    It is ironic that the BN leaders could still not take heed of such jibes and remain arrogant and defiant till now of his stinging remarks.

    When he made reference to the draconian ISA, he had also directed it towards the entire Malaysian Rakyat to wake up and throw out the ISA if it does not serve its purpose. By such remarks, it was also meant to tell the Malaysian Rakyat that it’s time up for his successor to be thrown out if he has over-stayed.

    By explicitly saying that Najib should have been his choice as his successor again point to this fact of his dislike for Bodohwi. There is this expressed desire to ensure the baton be handled by another person. Needless to say, whoever takes as the next PM would not make any difference. It’s merely an eye-wash to the Malaysian public.

    Right or wrong by saying so, Tun Mahathir’s message has to be taken from a deeper perspective or Malaysia will be doomed further to be overtaken by our neighbours within the Asean region.

    All voters, please wear your goggles and ensure to do the right thing in your precious voting slips. All of us must have the clear conscious mind to discern any negative propaganda that may be hurled onto you for choosing the Opposition team this 8th March 2008. Let’s take this Tun’s inspiration to inspire the many minds of all to effective manage our future destiny.

    YB Lim: I attended your ceramah yesterday at Hin Hua Sec School in Klang which was overwhelmed by the crowd, somethings not seen in the BN component party. I heard your voice which was affected by so many speeches and I am very very touched by the commitment you has demonstrated all these difficult years in struggle to fight for equality of all races and for democratic process. True, from what you said, not all MCA members are corrupted. But they just remained silent when it comes to time for them to speak out and speak against, and that is a BIG problem. Being a politician, one should be able to stand up against injustice and corruption, like the great Reformer, Martin Luther said, ‘here I stand’. When one of them speaks out, and he’s removed. The political atmosphere is totally not right.
    Today, the frontline of Sin Chew showed a couple being attended by the police after their complaint to the PM. My question is really, why do you have to wait until now to draw your attention to people’s problem. These should be the PM’s normal practice and not just because you want to win this election that you show it. That is not the TRUE COLOUR. It is tantamount to a SHOW.
    I bought a house in Klang three years ago, and for the need of my family, we did an extension at the back. We followed the law and paid around RM 2000 for the plan and approval in the proper procedure. When I read from the paper that Mr Z built his ‘palace’ without approval for millions of dollar and eventually he is fined for only one thousand plus for the plan and approval, my heart is really boiling. Where is the justice? A politician did an illegal construction and was fined a thousand, while an ordinary citizen obeying the law was charged two thousand for his honest heart. Within me, I can’t tolerate such a injustice act of the present government. Mr Z should be put to prison for what he did because corruption is the gravest crimes in politics. But PM didn’t do anything, and I suppose he will not. Where is his ‘Mr Clean’ image? It is shattered, and Malay will be without its bright future, if such kind of corruption is not checked.

    The problems plaguing the Indian community could be resolved by removing MIC president S Samy Vellu who stifled Indian voices, said former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday.

    In the second part of an exclusive interview with the Malaysian statesman, Mahathir said removing the MIC leader would allow more Indian voices to be heard.

    What a cheap shot!!!!

    Lee Chong Wei (LCW)…national badminton player helping Lim Hee Leong (LHL) in his campaign in Gopeng agst Lee Boon Chye of PKR. LCW partnered LHL in a badminton match agst Simpang Pulai players and won. He even got the nerved to say that he is a national player and since BN is the Govt, he supports BN.
    Here you have a true lallang who goes with the wind. Will he support BR when BR wins the election?
    My little support for him is now ‘0’ support and I trully wish he will not even advance to the 2nd round of the AllEngland Championship next week.
    What a thrash….when he loses, he blames everyone but himself.
    We in BR will never support such a lallang.

    The simple reason BN dare not engage in a debate is they are all afraid. (no bola) There are just too many skeltons in the closet, some of whom will be voting come 8/3.

    LKS don’t just deny BN 2/3s majority. We want BN out. Get back what belongs to the rakyat and put these vampires in jail.

    BN has ‘main the rakyat’s belakang’ too many times.

    Dah-Lah BN undurLah.

    Lets give BN the boot.

    But with Abdullah there is incompetence … He gives a multi-billion ringgit contract to his son to build a monorail in Penang without tender. He gives a 25 billion ringgit development approval for Patrick Lim, his crony in Penang.

    Election fever is heating up in the urban seats in Sarawak. Just today, the SUPP members have started distributing ‘ang paus’ to people in coffee shops. In Miri, the amount was something around RM100. Higher in Kuching and Sibu. Many DAP members also went to collect the ang paus, but they will definately be voting rocket! Go DAP!!

    Hello Malaysian…

    by John D. Rockefeller

    This I Believe….

    I believe in the supreme worth of idividual and in his right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    I believe that evry right implies a responsibility; evry opportunity, an obligation, evry possession, duty.

    I believe that the law was made for man and not man for the law; that government is the servant of the people and not their master.

    I believe in the dignity of labor whether withe head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living.

    I believe that thrift is essential to well-ordered living and that economy is a prime requisite of a sound financial structure, wheather in government, business, or personal affairs.

    I believe that truth and justice are fundamental to an enduring social order.

    I believe in the sacredness of a promise, that a man’s word should be as good as his bond; that character-not wealth or power or position is of suprieme worth.

    I believe that the rendering of useful service is the common duty of mankind and that only in the purifying fire of sacrifice is the dross of selfishness consumed and the greatness of human soul set free.

    I believe in the all-wise and all loving God; named by whatevername, and that the individual’s highest fullfillment, greatest happiness and widest usefulness are to be found in living harmony withhis will.

    at last I believe that love is the greatest thing in the world; that it alone can overcome hate; that aright can and will triump over might.

    hope these mssg can inspire this nation and evry one of us if we to become successful in ourself first.

    cheers and all the best to you Malaysians….

    I will go back hometown Bagan to vote for DAP!!!

    The BN people is really TOO over.

    It was showed on 8TV, the Lim Keng Yik, was telling a joke saying that YB Lim Kit Siang don’t know how to teach son, YB Lim Guan Eng and saying that YB Lim GE was having affair with Datuk Seri Anwar. This minister has no moral! Low attitude, kick him out! You know what some of the people who were there were dollah, OKT, KSK and others.

    This is too much, how could he assult (although it was a joke) the DAP people!

    Low moral punya keng yik! Get lost!

    those who joined UMNO, MCA, Gerakan, MIC are those who want to earned fast money through whatever kang tao they can get ! they don’t care a damn about your future in this country !

    I salute those who are in DAP, Keadilan, PAS – this are the ppl who still believe in speaking the truth !

    we all know that those Barisan National are laughing at us because we still speak the truth in this 21st century and get nothing in return, but i’m still that naive and don’t succumb to the real world ! we want the truth, fair chance for all ! no corruption, no fishy project being awarded to UMNOPUTRA by sucking our hard earned money !

    my money is full of blood !

    Pls deny them as many seats as possible, it’s the time, we want somebody to fight for us in the State and National Parliament ! enough of slapdog from MCA, Gerakan, MIC, Umno !

    There are many readers here who are so eager to see the downfall of BN. So do I. But the sad reality is, we may not get what we want when the results are announced on Saturday night/Sunday morning.
    There is this streak of cowardice among Chinese Malaysians that worries me. There will forgo all principles and vote for a BN dog so as not to rock the proverbial boat.
    In Penang I am afraid, Gerakan which is going for battle with a D in its report card might still come out victorious. This is what I don’t understand about the Penang Chinese. I hope they have grown up and out of this fear syndrome. I don’t understand why they just dump Gerkan into the Melaka Straits and pick DAP.
    Ceramah attendance is not an indicator of victory. Despite all the odds I hope DAP forms the next Penang state government.

  58. #58 by ALtPJK on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 8:54 pm


    Many articles have been written in this and other blogs on the case of denying BN the 2/3 majority. Many posters here too have
    expounded the many compelling reasons to do so. But is this a
    scenario we are likely to see after the 12th GE on 8/3/08??

    All of us know that the winning majority of many BN candidates in
    the last GE were large. Only an exceptional few had small winning
    majority. On the other hand most of the 19 opposition candidates
    who won in 2004 had a small majority.

    The question now is ‘what proportion of voters who had returned the BN candidate in 2004 would be likely to vote for opposition in 2008?’ What magnitude of percentage swing to the opposition would be required to overcome these many cases of large majority? In the history of Malaysian elections, were there instances of a swing of votes to the opposition to the order of 10% to 20%?. The answer is ‘yes’ but only in isolated cases but never across the entire country.

    This then begs some analysis and projections on what the scenario
    would be in a certain given percentage swing to opposition. It would be difficult to assume and set a percentage swing across the board because the racial make-up of constituencies differ markedly but it might help to categories Peninsula constituencies into 3 groups namely (a) urban (b) mixed (c) rural/UMNO-BN heartland and within each we can make assumptions on the likely percentage swing in each of the Malay, Chinese, Indian and Others communities.

    Using electorate data (constituency size, racial composition, majority in 2004) from this website I have
    tried to project under 3 scenarios – conservative case, medium case and optimistic case for opposition in Peninsula Malaysia. In each scenario I have made some assumptions on the percentage of voters within each community, who having voted for BN in 2004, but now are swinging their votes to opposition in 2008. It is also assumed there will be 70% voter turnout and that every current opposition constituency returns an opposition candidate in 2008.

    (The figures below represent the percentage of voters in each
    community, who in 2004 voted for BN but are voting for opposition in 2008. Read the figures using the ‘/’ as separators)

    Conservative case


    Projected result: Opposition picking up only these extra seats DAP(3) PKR(1) PAS(1). Total number of opposition MPs in Parliament is 24 i.e current 19 (assumed retained) plus 5.

    Medium case

    Urban/20/25/25/25 (Note the % swing is quite high)

    Projected result: Opposition picking up only these extra seats DAP(3) PKR(1) PAS(2). Total number of opposition MPs in Parliament is 25.

    Optimistic case

    Urban/30/40/40/40 (Wow!! ever seen these high % swing?)

    Projected result: Opposition picking up only these extra seats DAP(6) PKR(1) PAS(2). Total number of opposition MPs from Peninsula Malaysia in Parliament is 28.

    Even in an optimistic forecast for Sabah/Sarawak from which the
    opposition are to hopefully pick up an extra 15 seats, this would only put 46 opposition MPs in Parliament. (28 + 15 + 3)

    Quite a grim propect you would say.

    However, you would have spotted that in these projections only
    numbers are used to determine the projected results and that no
    consideration have been given to the ‘personality’ of candidates,
    the plethora of issues facing the electorate of different constituencies and most of all the factor of the ever growing groundswell of dissatifaction among ordinary Malaysians with BN. If there were to be a cumulative effect of all these, it might well be some sort of a TSUNAMI swing of voters towards the opposition.

    It would take nothing short of a worryingly hard and an earth shattering earthquake to achieve a TSUNAMI case as follows for there to be any semblance of near 1/3 opposition representation in Parliament.

    TSUNAMI case


    Projected result: Opposition picking up these extra seats DAP(17)
    PKR(4) PAS(13). Total number of opposition MPs in Parliament is 53.

    It would then require Sabah/Sarawak to return at least 20 extra opposition MPs out of a total of 56 seats in East malaysia to deny BN 2/3 majority. (53 + 20 + 3)

    It would indeed have to be an historic election in which an unprecedentedly high percentage swing of voters (well exceeding 60%) have to vote for the opposition to break the BN/UMNO hegemony of political power.

    We can no longer be tempted by the enticements of short term gains and fall for the same lies of past BN promises. We can no longer expect someone else to vote in the opposition for us. Each of us must do it for ourselves for the sake of our future generations. We have this and this election only to stem the BN/UMNO tide for if they are to continue retaining the 2/3 majority despite being in an apparent tight corner now, alas, there will not be any more room to voice out our grievances let alone stage a fight for justice and equality in the future.

  59. #59 by jetaime.f on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 8:57 pm

    I got the news that polling via mail is allowed. I was wondering, if this is allowed to be applied to the country’s army personnel, would it not apply to Malaysians living overseas. Is polling via mail legal?

    It utterly saddens those who had to move overseas to continue to grieve over the country’s economic, political and social condition. It is even more upsetting to see those who wants to leave to have a better future but who are not as fortunate to do so. I doubt it will be this generation probably many generations later when pp will one day realize and sincerely ask themselves what they want not just for them but for their future generations so to truly voice out their wants (through the polls) instead of acting in accordance to the influence of the dominants so that their desire and rights to have a better life regardless of race is returned to the people of Malaysia.

    Dear Dr. Lim, I sincerely thank you for spending your life time trying to voice out for the people so that everyone has the right to a better life and I pray you will continue to win in this election. God Bless.

  62. #62 by Hurricane on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 9:02 pm

    his is a msg i got from someone…. u will be impress how old our people in Rembau (Khairi’s area) live!!!!

    Subject: FW: Electoral Website – Absolutely ridiculous
    Importance: High

    Check out these following IC numbers in the electoral website given

    I tried my IC number and my details came out correctly but try using the
    following IC numbers: 890211050014, 961022505236, 971219750079,
    991230710156, 991025740081.

    Ages of these people (from the first 6 digits of their IC) are 19, 12,
    13 and 9 and they are all registered voters in Rembau where Khairy is

    The nine-year old is also named “Long Fatt” … seriously.

    THIS IS ABSOLUTE MOCKERY OF THE ELECTIONS!!!!!!!!! You wonder, should I
    even bother going to the polls!??!!

    here’s another one msg.
    SPR cekap & telus??

    Go to SPR website – Voter status .
    Enter this ic no, 901231090030, he is 117 old.
    Try this T715511 and 670104075529, he can vote twice by himself n post.
    Now this T719756 and 750909035727, again he can vote twice.
    There is a ghost. Ur smart vote can stop this dirty tactic.
    Think wisely, Vote wisely.

    so. can we do anything about it??? how can we not lose to BN with this sort of thing going on. really dirty.

  63. #63 by concerned_citizen on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 9:05 pm

    As according the current situation, BN might still win big because of all the dirty tricks that it indulges in. But somehow, we who stand along with the truth speakers must defend the truth truthfully. No doubt!

    Don’t hesitate in choosing DAP, Keadilan or Pas, which some of you might not fancy any one of them. Chinese could pick PAS or keadilan whichever applicable and Malay and Indian please be assured that you could pick DAP safe. Your rights would not be denied if DAP win.

    These three parties are the true hero of the TRUTH! Not those BN-liars.

What utter garbage! One does not invite feedback after 4years + in office & barely a week away from the GE!!!

    YB Kit pls do what you have to do to rid this worthless scum of the worst kind & let him sleep for a long long time & not stop the earth from rotating.

  69. #69 by goldenscreen on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 10:16 pm

    Yes, but then maybe BN thugs will infiltrate the celebration and start trouble and seize power once again. So to be on the safe side, I prefer if celebrations are kept to a minimum. Better be safe, than sorry.

  73. #73 by undergrad2 on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 10:27 pm

    “You know the government member (of parliament), sometimes they are ‘ahli bodek’ (apple polishers). They are always saying ‘you’re right’, and you have no means of assessing whether you are going in the right direction or not.” Mahathir

    He can say that now he’s out of the government. In government he’s so autocratic in his ways that nobody would dare disagree with him. The tin-pot dictator – a description favored by the U.S. Department of State – surrounded himself with a group of “Yes” men who told him what he wanted to hear. It was not surprising that he suffered from that disconnect between himself and reality. But some credit must go to him because he realised on occassions that when he needed the information he was not getting it. Consequently he made some bad decisions. Surely you don’t expect him to make public admissions of these! I am sure he expressed his misgivings to his inner circle.

    This is as close as you could get to hear him admitting that a leader cannot always be right and that a person in a leadership position would need to have people who disagree with him when they should.

  80. #80 by alaneth on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 11:03 pm

    ALtPJK, I’m not a political analyst, but a DAP supporter – Your projection can be true – however, we shouldn’t see PKR as weak.

    Seeing the recent MCA/MIC’s subtle scare to the Chinese/Indian voters that they have been working quietly & without them Chinese/Indians will be in trouble, I forsee the Chinese/Indians will not swing that much towards DAP – just a little. DAP may gain (we hope) 5-10 extra seats in Parliment.

    But I see the Chinese & Indians wants to get even with UMNO & not against any Chinese-based parties. I believe they will lash out against Pemuda UMNO this election & for the Malay areas where the non-Malays are large 30-40%, where BN(UMNO) vs PKR, they will all cast for PKR. Why of course they will chose a ‘Justice’ party rather than a Keris-waving, Ketuanan Melayu party. With areas where the Malay votes split, the chances of PKR winning is very high. Setiawangsa is a good example.

    So just watch out, I project PKR will win big this GE – they are contesting 100+ seats. Watch out – they may even win bigger than DAP & may form the opposition head. Then Anwar may come back. But we will never know until 48hrs from now…

    Good luck DAP, good luck opposition. We have to teach BN generally & UMNO Youth specifically a good lesson.!

  81. #81 by BlackEye on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 11:04 pm

    AAB said people should not vote for candidates with big voices in parliament but should vote for people who will be in the cabinet as the cabinet makes decisions not the parliament! For the life of me I don’t understand the man’s logic.

  83. #83 by undergrad2 on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 11:08 pm

    Obviously, BN and UMNO are not the only ones who deserve a good spanking! Adults who refuse to grow up also deserve a good spanking.

    According to information by , the traffic popularity of pollitic parties all goes to oppositions parties.

    Website parties Ranking in Malaysia (6.3.2008) 872 524 2,020 379 2,086 3,563 4,687 1,500

    You can visit and check for yourself.Just key in the URL addresses of website above and check the results . Seems like for this coming election , it is going to be strange if the oppositions do not win it.

  86. #86 by Jong on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 11:17 pm

    You can’t take Dr M seriously, he’s kinda nyanyok neither here nor there. Recently when interviewed he said “we need an Opposition” and those reporters jumped in excitment! silly. He should have encouraged his son Mukhriz to join DAP!

  87. #87 by alaneth on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 11:30 pm

    Dr.M one day say this, another day say that – you r right…. old age is catching up.

    Unluckily he is not the PM for this GE – or he BN will lose many many many more seats to DAP, PKR, PAS, & for sure cannot get 2/3.

    Just wonder when Samy Vellu will go? But good for him to be up there this GE – Why? People are fed-up & will swing to opposition. See how Dr.M sacked Anwar & 1997 GE Big swing to opposition??? Wonder will this happen to MIC/BN this GE???

  88. #88 by gitf701 on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 11:32 pm

    We would be traveling back in 2 cars from Singapore to Sitiawan just to vote for DAP and PKR. Would you? Many of us 1st timers! Cheers Barisan Rakyak!!

  89. #89 by ktteokt on Thursday, 6 March 2008 - 11:49 pm

    It’s just because BN has never lost in any previous elections that they cannot accept defeat! Defeat can be very painful!!!

    Samy Velu is going to lose big time in Sungei Siput.

    to all the awaken Chinese, Indian and Malay, we should vote for our future. the current government is no longer democratic, they became dictator. government should affraid of citizen because we vote them, we give them the right to govern this country, but the Malaysia government now is pressing the citizen, the PM is treatening the chinese with May 13 incident, treated the indian with their population status, cheating the kampong malay with the little bumiputra special right to gether peoples’ vote. observing the dirty trick barisan national is using, why should we continue to grand them the right to govern our country? let’s vote for opposition, vote for change, for reformation! for our future!

  93. #93 by cfcluvdap on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 12:54 am

    Opposition…..keep up the good work in exposing BN corruption and ungrown mentality. Yes, teach BN members the meaning of demoncracy and selflessness in service the people.

    TDM is also doing something to wake up the BN in exercising and believing in the check and balance of the opposition.

    I am going to ask you what nationality are you?
    What would your reply be?

    01. I am a Malaysian Chinese.
    02. I am a Malay.
    03. I am a Malaysian Indian
    04. I am a Malaysian Kadazan
    05. I am a Malaysian … so on and so forth.

    Why didnt you reply I am a Malaysian or Bangsa Malaysia?
    It is because the government of the day and the the government of before have divided us all, Malaysians, so they may plunder the riches of our beloved country Malaysia like the colonial British did. WHO ARE THE PLUNDERERS AND RAPISTS OF OUR BELOVED COUNTRY MALAYSIA? BARISAN NASIONAL OR MAY I SAY BARISAN NARAKA. MAYBE I SHOULD UMNO, YES, UMNO!!!

    Last but not least the government of the day and before decided that racist card is not enough and decided to split Malaysian along religious lines.

    We have eyes yet we did not see. We have ears but we did not hear. There was light yet we live in darkness. But now we see, we hear and realized where once there was darkness there was actually light.

    ONCE WE WERE Malay, Chinese, Indians, Sikhs, Kadazans, … WE REALIZE WE ARE ALL MALAYSIANS AFTER ALL.

    George Town, March 6, 9 pm — The Democratic Action Party rally in Penang — which is going on right now — has drawn more than 30,000 people, by conservative estimates.

    Police sources had earlier told The Malaysian Insider that a crowd of “easily 15,000” could be expected tonight at the Han Chiang school field here, the second-last night ceramahs can be held before Saturday’s polling. However, the crowds in Penang have just kept swelling in numbers, leaving even a veteran political observer to describe it as “amazing”.

    There are frequent cries of “Just change it” in Hokkien.

    The crowd is mainly Chinese, a mixed bag of young and old, with pockets of Malays and Indians. About a quarter of them are wearing red, as called upon by DAP party leaders to show its strength in numbers.

    The speakers are DAP leaders Lim Kit Siang, his son and secretary-general of the party Lim Guan Eng and party veteran Karpal Singh. PKR’s only representative in Parliament until it was dissolved for these polls, Wan Azizah, the wife of Anwar Ibrahim, is also scheduled to speak. Anwar, who was in Singapore yesterday and believed to be in Kuala Lumpur tonight, is not able to make it for the rally.

    There are 3 giant video screens, lending the air of a rock concert to the night, with a giant moving crane for the cameraman feeding the picture to the screens.

    Pictures of the rally are expected to be posted on The Malaysian Insider late tonight.

    Excellent write-up for net-savvy supporters of BR. TDM’s views certainly is a boost to the opposition and to the rakyat, and I think this was an honest opinion after him having seen the direction BN has taken in the past 4 years.

    Tomorrow is D-Day, and hopefully at least 35% of all rakyats vote for opposition for parliament seats and more for state seats.

    Let BN know that we, the rakyat, are now more politically conscious. Regarding Anwar, too many adverse comments from the BN. Give Anwar a chance! He has changed, hopefully.

    If we, the rakyat, make a mistake tomorrow, then it is only for 5 years! We made a mistake for 50 years!

    Hello Voice,
    Your formula is ok.
    What about
    BN = BN + MCA + MIC + Gerakan = BN = 0
    BN = Barang Naik
    MCA = Mana Chandra Ayam?
    MIC = Manaboleh Insult Chandra
    Gerakan = Gila elak rakan

  100. #100 by voice on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 1:42 am

    yes, it is correct too, hope to see more derivations
    BN = UMNO = 0!

  101. #101 by showsomemercy on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 1:46 am

    I hope opposition can kick many a$$ this time. Makkal Sakti! If there is no cheating i am pretty sure opposition will do very well this time but with the current state of EC giving so much advantage to the government, i am throughly worried.

    Anyway, Makkal Sakti! :)

    Last night (6-3-08), at Han Chiang, Penang, a record crowd of 50,000 plus came to witness the Biggie. Such huge crowd that it spilled to the roadside outside the fencing perimeter of the school field!

    This time, DAP has the camaderia spirit to hold it outdoor – in the field completed with several projector screens so everyone can witness the happenings & listen to the speeches.

    One great thing happened this ceramah. Have you heard the roars of a tiger? It’s really scary! But these roars at Han Chiang are thunderous! These roars of more than 50,000 plus will send the most evil of evils to the depths of hell!

    Uncle Lim called it “The ROARRRRZZ of the People of Penang!”
    These are genuine roars of Chinese, Indians and Malays for the BN scrooges to take note, sit up and listen, in particular Pak Lah who has 2 big ears ( or 4 counting his SIL’s?). These are roars that things must CHANGE NOW.

    One more great thing – the crowd supported DAP with an estimated RM120,000 collected that night. This is much needed fuel for DAP! Even in hard times, Penangites know how to use their money productively, effectively, passionately!

    Let this be a revelation to Pak Lah, Penangites mean business of fair, clean and justice politics.

    Come 8-3-08, we will VOTE with conviction. JUST CHANGE IT.

    “The Barisan Nasional leadership had launched the general election campaign with a very cocky and arrogant start, with the Selangor, Malacca and Johore Barisan Nasional leaders declaring that they want to make their states “zero-opposition” states to recent panicky signs in certain BN quarters at the strong and powerful wind of change blowing in the land – causing Barisan Nasional propagandists to resort to the dirty politics of fear, intimidation and blackbail as making May 13 threats.”

    What the Yang Dipertuan Agong is going to say about this? Agong must say something about this May 13 threats by BN. Agong must tell UMNO don’t play with fire as we will find every murderers and bring them to face justice by any means necessarry. There are very extreme Chinese as well you know.

    Whilst Dap ceramahs throughout Malaysia are really a hit with large turnouts, we hope that goes the same for PKR and PAS ceramahs as well.Mind you like what YB Kit says “It is a tall order just to deny BN two thirds majority this coming Saturday.”.One needs to be reminded the results of 2004 GE.
    (1) UMNO with 35.9% popular votes got 110 parlimentary seats enough to form government with a simple majority!
    (2)Opposition with 36.2% popular votes got only 20 parlimentary seats.
    Just take a look at the huge discrepency.UMNO in spite of having less popular votes can get to form a government whereas opposition having more popular votes can only obtain a miserable 20 parlimentary seats (total parlimentary seats then is 219, now 222).Why? It is not postal votes and it is not phantom votes.It is MAhathir’s work.Don’t take what he says today cos what he says today is his attempt to strike at Abdullah.He is no angel!
    However we must have hope and again like what YB says it is achievable to deny them a two thirds majority win.Come on let’s suck it to them.Just keep influencing as many people (people surronding you) as possible to do likewise and we’ll will begin to see some light at the end of a tunnel!

  107. #107 by a-malaysian on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 2:58 am


    What can I say except to pray that these will all convert into votes for CHANGE.

    Fireworks were let off, but I heard that it is not from DAP but some undesirable elements trying to distrupt the speeches. Police trying to write summons for cars and motorcycle parking on the roadside but were boo off.

    Dear Malaysian,

    Thousands of people are attending ceramahs by the Oppositions everyday. What I fear and also YB Kit in his speech remind us 13 years ago when the situation was the same but DAP fall flat when the result were announced.

    So we have to keep on pushing and ensure that all our friends and relatives are with us for change right up to the last minute. For if we let this golden opportunity slip by us there can never be another opportunity like this and we will forever be 2nd and 3th class citizen of our own country.

    50 years is ENOUGH
    Vote For A Change
    Vote For Any Opposition
    Give Them A Chance To Change For A Better Malaysia
    Remember bn Is A Useless Grouping Of Self Serving, Corrupt, Dictator, Power Crazy, Racist, Kris waving, etc, etc type of parties.

  108. #108 by showsomemercy on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 3:24 am

    God please bless the opposition and bring them to path of glory. I was very interested in joining politics when i was very very young. I thought joining the BN party or MCA would be very cool thing to do.


    After i grew up, i know that BN and MCA are crap… This will be my first election and my vote will surely go to DAP…

    Makkal SAKTI!!!

  109. #109 by Love Dap on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 3:33 am

    All The Best to you YB on the 8th March. I pray hard that for this round, you team as well as PKR and Pas will win the battle. We Malaysian will certain need a CHANGE after 4 years of suffering under badawi’s government !! YB, Take Charge !! We give you all of our blessings !

    “////Why? It is not postal votes and it is not phantom votes. It is Mahathir’s work. Don’t take what he says today cos what he says today is his attempt to strike at Abdullah. He is no angel!///” – AhPek

    Correct, correct, correct! Looks like an angel, sounds like an angel but……..

    It is not just to strike at Abdullah : it is in part to make us forget that it was his work! He does not want his legacy to be adjudged too harshly.

    In telling Malaysians not to vote for incompetent or corrupt candidates fielded by BN – and I am sure there will be many of such characters that will be fielded by it – he fans the flames of hope amongst BN’s detractors – and with that forgottence of his past misdeeds – that BN will not do that well this coming election when, and if, the BN’s traditional voters, especially the rural malay vote bank, heed his sagacious advice as elder “UMNO/BN statesman” to vote against the BN in such cases, in service of the Opposition’s cause.

    First of all this is not going to happen. I don’t think that there will be that much of a vote swing in this sector of BN’s traditional voters and supporters.

    Second, to him, the government needs a viable opposition only if it were not his government.

    Yet many people are now so angry with the ruling coalition that they’re willing to consider Mahathir an ally (in fact even to the extent that even the Devil himself if he were opposed to the BN can also be considered an angel) and redeem his record.

    He took us for a ride when he was in power and ironically could still do so after!

    FAQs for 12th GE

    Q1: What would happen IF no Chinese ministers in the cabinet?
    A1: From past historical records saying that Chinese basic rights were eroded even with MCA ministers in the cabinet. MCA and Gerakan are toothless parties, they are no more relevant to the Chinese community. In the nutshell, with or without MCA/Gerakan ministers in the Cabinet make no different to Malaysian Chinese dilemma.

    Q2: Why SPR withdrew indelible ink procedure in last minute?
    A2: To let BN releases their phantom voters on 8 March 2008.

    Q3: Why more personal attacks on Anwar Ibrahim in recent days?
    A3: BN is started worrying that Anwar may change the political landscape if urban Malays decide to revolt against UMNO. In addition, Chinese and Indian voters are very upset with Abdullah unfulfilled promises made in past GE besides other bread and butter issues.

    BN cannot attack Anwar’s popular poverty based-NEP, the next best option is launching a character assault against him.

    Q4: Foreign investors want a 2/3 majority, but corrupted judiciary system and government?
    A4: Indian government with slightly more than 50% seats in parliament does not drive away investors. Clean, effective and fair government is more important for foreign investors.

  114. #114 by on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 7:12 am

    My friend is a sub-contractor whom is a crony of Nazri also sent me a wind of change SMS asking voter to vote opposition.

  115. #115 by lbn on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 7:22 am

    LKS, I salute you for what you’re trying to do. Keep up the great work. All the best!

  116. #116 by ktteokt on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 7:22 am

    Only opposition parties need to “fight for this” and “fight for that” in parliament, definitely not MCA as a component party to the ruling BN! And we can see election posters in Cheras telling the Chinese it will be easier for MCA to “fight for this and that” within Parliament. This is utter nonsense and unless MCA thinks it is an “opposition” party in the ruling BN, such propaganda only makes the Chinese laugh! If at all MCA thinks it is so clever in “fighting” for such rights, then it should perhaps consider joining the opposition and not remain a “revolting parasite” within BN!!!!!

  117. #117 by lakshy on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 7:39 am

    Same here. A friend who is an Umno member and is a contractor for government tenders said the same thing. He is voting for DAP and PKR in his area. Not voting for BN.

    Practically everyone you speak to says the same thing. BN must be afraid. So expect massive vote rigging.

    So please please call all your friends and family to make it a point to go and vote and be careful not to spoil your vote. Offer to drive them to their polling centres. The higher the voter turnout, the less chance and effect of undi hantu!

    The ballot slip must have the franking/embossed/punched sign. If it does not have it, it is considered as undi rosak. So when you get your ballots, make sure they have been franked/embossed/punched. And when you vote, mark an X clearly for whom you want elected to represent you. Do not write or mark anything anywhere else on the ballot paper.

    Many people still mark with a Tick or circle etc. BN may try to declare such votes as invalid. So tell as many people as you can, how to vote. In the BN training given to the polling agents, theya re told to accept only a cross mark ‘X’.

    In some villages, BN agents have gone and told the senior citizens to mark a cross on the space for the candidate that they do not want elected. So beware all these dirty tricks. Tell your parents and uncles and aunts how to vote properly and mark within the box and nowhere else. Make sure every vote counts.

    Dont end up queueing and wasting your valuable vote. Dont waste your democratic right!

  118. #118 by Loyal Malaysian on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 7:50 am

    “The PM is going to address the nation tonight from his house in Kepala Batas, so say front page The Star. No big deal in normal circumstances but coming on the eve of Election day, it shows to me the extent of BN’s disrespect of the electoral process. Lim Kit Siang was reported to have filed a suit on the powers of the caretaker government but I supposed it has been buried with our judiciary’s independence.

    The threat of denying the Malaysian Chinese voice in the government is given prominence. Any thinking Malaysian will ask : What has the Malaysian Chinese voice in our government been doing since the 2004 landslide victory? If they have done their part to voice out against injustices, corrupt practices, cronyism and the whole litany of ills, BN will not feel so insecure as to have resort to threats. Instead they have shown themselves to be impotent and are just the errand boys of UMNO. Granted what we have seen of the Malaysian Chinese representation in the government over the years, I believe it is time to go into uncharted territory. Even if it means UMNO will carry out its threat.

    I really wonder why is BN pulling out all the stops. All the independent political analysts I have read say in no way will BN lose that 2/3 majority. So why resort to all the dirty tricks?”

  119. #119 by sotong on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 8:07 am

    BN’s narrow, divisive and damaging politics affect all races.

    It is time true Malaysians stick to their own kind – people of all races who care about justice, fairness, mutual respect for differences, accountability, honesty and etc..

    V-1 day!
    Yes, one of the most common dirty tricks to mislead uninformed voters:
    Some voters were told, if you don’t like BN candidates, put an X against their name/logo!!
    And, if you like to vote for DAP, PKR, or PAS, put a tick against their name/logo!!
    These are ways to increase the number of votes for BN and to increase spoilt votes for the opposition!


    Please educate your relatives, friends, etc: don’t be afraid to put only an X against DAP, PKR, or PAS; put it inside the box and do not write anything outside the box

  123. #123 by boh-liao on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 8:40 am

    To all civil servants:

    Don’t be afraid to VOTE FOR DAP, PKR, or PAS! Your loyalty is to the country, not the government.

    You will continue to get your promotion and bonus.

    If you are really, really scared to vote for the opposition because of imaginery punishment, then please do not vote at all. Please do not vote for BN just because you are scared that you will be punished by BN if you don’t do so. In fact, almost all of us are already being punished by BN because of their lousy governance and unfair practices.

    Vote for change and a better tomorrow for our children!

  124. #124 by boh-liao on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 8:51 am

    Remember the following scenario? After announcing the dissolution of the parliament, Pak Liar Lah said ‘Anwar Who?’, ‘Anwar, not important lah, forgotten about Anwar lah’, etc. etc.

    During this campaign period, almost everyday, Liar Lah and his gang of BN cheats invariably attack Anwar. They even got their dogs (e.g., Chandra M and others) to join in the attack.

    Anwar, no factor! What a liar, AAB!

    So pissed off that AAB took the risk to have an early erection on 8.3.08!

  125. #125 by Jimm on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 8:53 am

    Please take note that we are talking about all Malaysian today and our own country future.
    There are no issue about races or status except those that raised by UMNO/MCA/MIC.

    We all know that this 12thGE will be ‘rigged’ AGAIN by BN.
    The government servant will have to vote for BN because their entire livinghood depends on them. Most government servants have enjoyed good live and easy job scope with ‘wealth’ opportunities to keep their life style going. They also cometo terms with reality that should there are changes in the government, they will tends to lose more and have to really work to earn their livinghood.
    I have spoken to a few younger friends working with the government and they have voiced out their personal opinion about the kind of benefits and priviledges that they enjoy now are too good to let go. Easy job and status with incentives.
    That’s why government rather keep the entire 1.2 millions workers under their wings to be Malays majority as they knew the advantage from it.
    Ask the Police force, even those below rank also have to think twice about their future as their officer have been giving briefing about who is government and why they rather ‘work’ with this government.
    Overall, the dark force have been ruling this country. Those that ‘supposedly’ to keep things white and clean have given up their duties and seek for comfortable zones to live.
    I was once told that many high ranking officer wives in the civil servants and police force are being specially ‘taken care’ by ELITE group ‘butlers’ so that their husband will continue to follow orders.
    Spouses are important unit in the family and normally these high rank officers have to ‘give in’ due to temptations and life style ego.
    I believe that monies were created by mankind as a form of trading tools for needs and fairness.
    Over time, we reinvent this tools to create rich and powerful.
    Now, after all these revolutions, monies become our master because we have become lazy to excel humanly.

    Malaysian, do not give up even though this 12thGE result (which been rigged) were ‘given’ to BN.
    We all knew that we will win this race afterall.
    UMNO/MCA/MIC will run away in 2010 as the economy bubble will burst and they all know that there will be no more wealth left to ‘siphone’ and a lot of works needed to be render to revive this country future.
    Please do not give up on Malaysian Malaysia hope. We cannot beat them now because of what they are using to keep ‘rigging’ wealth.
    As soon as AFTA set in and wealth are very little left, they will stop and run away.
    We, truly Malaysian will stand tall to rebuild this country again as our foreparents did.
    We, truly Malaysian will put Malaysia back on track again after 2010.
    We will never quit.

    YB Lim KS, as you move around today and tomorrow, please surround yourself with many known supporters. During the counting night, please be careful, especially when the figures start to favour DAP/PKR/PAS. Ask Lim Guan Eng to take similar precaution. The stage now is set for BN to receive the worst thrashing in its history.

  127. #127 by boh-liao on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 9:02 am

    If you want a silent and toothless parliament and state legislative assembly, then vote for BN candidates. They are all brain-dead ‘eh gao’ (or mute in Hokkien) and like a group of animals being pulled along by their noses and whipped to submission by the BN whip!

    Want an example? Just look at Chew Mei Fun – really funny, ignorant, and pathetic. She should just fade off graciously and enjoy whatever goodies she had accumulated in the last 7 or 8 years.

  128. #128 by oknyua on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 9:10 am

    Astro Advertisement. A good joke – “Ask yourself what you want?”
    • Do you want your family save and well: Crime rate for last 4 years.
    • Your children to have a future – Discrimination in scholarship and university admission.
    • A place where life is good, peaceful and stable? – What about body snatching, racial tension, little Mullah Napoleons?

    The BN advertisement is Astro TV and Radio is “tin kosong.” MCA advertisement in the STAR is so ludicrous that’s it comical. AAB’s comment that various races must be represented in the BN is just another rubbish – 4 years, where and when had the races been represented equally?

    Tomorrow – “D” day. DAP must win.

  129. #129 by Toyol on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 9:24 am

    Some friends told me that if BN wins this time, they will also win the next GE since as caretaker government, they have the advantage of resources. SO it is a lie when Najob tless voters to give them 4 more years! Its actually 8 years he is asking!

    On the eve of Election Day, take a moment to reflect if we had a good, clean and accountable government to begin with. We are where we are now because our government is corrupted to the core. If we let BN win again, our children and their children will suffer because of the bad decisions of their forefathers.

    Very happy to attend last night Grand Ceramah at Han Chiang. Fantastic! Like attending a concert. I believe the crowd will convert it into votes.
    We cannot trust MCA/Gerakan anymore. They are useless parties who cannot fight for us.Ong Tee Kiat, the one that I admired last time as he dare to speak for us BUT after the RM30K become RM3K issue, he totally shut up his mouth. How can MCA represent us?
    Let’s teach them a lesson. Vote for CHANGE!

    Dear YB Lim,
    Please do advise the citizens not to be too emotional and to keep their calm. If oppositions do win a lot of seats over this time, there are no guarantees that another ‘incident’ of may 13 won’t happen. Please advise everyone to stay home through the polling frenzy ends and keep the celebration as low as possible.

  132. #132 by on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 9:39 am

    Barisan Nasional Is Insulting Agong

    BN ads in TVs/internet have clearly insulting Yang Di-pertuan Agong by saying vote BN is equal to vote for Malaysia.

    Malaysia is a nation owned by all “rakyats” regardless of their political affiliation under the Agong. No political party in Malaysia can claim they are representing Malaysia under whatever circumstances except the Agong and cabinet appointed by Agong.

    BN is just a political party, they have no right to claim they are representing Malaysia. Malaysia is not a communist country like China with absolute power is given to communist party to rule China.

    Vote a party like BN is not equal to vote for Malaysia. GE is not a voting for Agong, but a cabinet works for Agong and rakyats.

    BN is challenging and insulting the legal status of Agong as a head of Malaysia.

    A joke to share.
    My wife had been voting DAP since she could vote many years ago. We drove around town and she asked, “Which one is DAP candidate and which one is BN?”

    MY answer, “I don’t know, but if you see fat, chubby and double chin candidate, it’s BN. DAP candidates do not have double chins or are overweight.”

    Uncle Lim what are you doing? and what are you going to do about these(see below from social culture malaysia) I have been telling you these from last election! you are shouting at campaigns and what the use we can’t deny 2/3 majority for barisan nasional with postal votes.

    Armym, Airforce, Navy and Police votes was carried out privately, each
    voter was compelled to enclose together both his ballot paper and identity
    declaration form inside the postal vote envelope before putting it into the
    ballot bag.

    why the identity? why not all these personals vote for ruling govt? The way
    it is conducted is the same. why waste time and stupid oppositions excepts
    this. how to deny 2/3 majority for Barisan National?


  137. #137 by boh-liao on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 10:04 am

    theStar (7.3.08): Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi reminded the Chinese community that if they gave the DAP their votes, they will end up not having any representation in the Government.

    AAB kept eating his own words and forgetting what he told us all: ‘I’m the PM for all Malaysians.’ So, he should look after all Malaysians (from white to black), with or without MCA, MIC, Gerakan in the BN government, and with DAP. PKR, and PAS in the parliament.

    If fact, with DAP, PKR, and PAS in the parliament, AAB will hear diverse voices (rather than silence from MCA, MIC, Gerakan MPs) and these voices will guide AAB to be really the PM for all Malaysians!

    Vote FOR DAP, PKR and DAP!

    NST headlines today. PM says no MCA/MIC, no voice for these races in government.

    Is this the kind of PM we want. Was he even thinking about the country? Obviously not. If they were sincere in the first place, the coalition need not be classified by race based parties. Why can’t BN be called just that…BN without UMNO, MCA, MIC etc. Just proves that the BN party is a racists party.

    Secondly, does MCA/MIC actually represent the Chinese and Indians respectively. NO, rather they sold them out. What difference does it make if we have MCA/MIC in the racists government. Better have no voice than a voice of a traitor!!!

    Hahahaha….MCA and MIC representing the minority races ? You gotta be kidding me, Pak Lah. These parties have been cowed into submission by UMNO for so long that they have lost their marbles, and the only way for the minorities to be heard will be through the Opposition.

    Over 90 pct of income tax is paid by non-bumiputras and not only do we have no say in how this money is spent, we have gone through the last 30 years watching silently as you and your partners in crime in MCA and MIC come up with ingenious schemes to steal the people’s money.

    Enough is enough. Vote Opposition.

    MCA forever shout to the chinese community for what their wakil rakyat have done in the various local community.Actually take for example Chew Mei Fun,why should an MP like her should waste time in looking after blogged drains,street lighting,poor road conditions,lack of public amenities in PJ Utara?Aren’t these are the jobs and duties of local councillors and the MBPJ staff?Where are these people?When we lodge a complaint regarding any of the above to MBPJ,they do not bother.But they will probably act upon the complaint when it is first refered to the attention of CMF and let her pressure the former.Only then the MBPJ would do something.Isn’t it indirectly helping CMF to score political mileage.However the MBPJ residents like in any other local municipality areas pay assessment rates.Don’t they deserve the services that the local council is deemed responsible to provide.So isn’t it stupid and redundant for a wakil rakyat to do the work of a local councillor or a local council staff.No wonder the MBPJ staff are inert and passive.

    Tricks works for general mass who have short term memory, who live with fear to change, or for some worst off who choose to betray their conscience in exchange for power & wealth.

    I believe Malaysians generally have grown up, BN thought the Rakyat are still a bunch of fool, and so the tricks of occupying all possible public channels to produce & air fears, subtle threats, entice the Rakyat with imaginery sweets.

    But real national growth and prosperity will be far fetch if we do not clean up power corruption and money politics through this election……the conclusion is to vote Opposition, and for simple reason of our love for Malaysia.

    It’s only less than 24 hours before we cast our votes for GE12. The BN has started their repeated old tactics by scaring the Chinese community of the potential fear losing our representative voice in government.
    Be sure that you don’t fall into this trap and see that your vote goes to Opposition because there is NO DIFFERENCE whether we have MCA, Gerakan or MIC in the government or not. They will only show their face as the champion of our cause but in actual fact manipulating those issue for political mileage.
    Have you ever heard that a Buddhist Temple can only be built according various restrictions namely : 1. No Buddha statue allowed on the external wall of the Temple. 2. No religious activities allowed to be carried within the premise. and so on…… What an insulting act ! Mind u, OKT, OKC and KSK have claimed to be staunch Buddhist. But where are they all this while as this application first started about 25 years ago and its actual site is in Kluang where Ho Seong Chang, former MCA Youth deputy head and PS of Min of Consumer Affairs is the former MP. It is also very near to Ayer Itam where MCA youth secreatary Wee Ka Seong is the MP.
    I am more furious as there are more and more politicians from MCA , and Gerakan started intruding to various religious and Chinese base organisations forthe sake controlling these organisation for whatever obvious reasons u may guess.
    So, REJECT MCA and GERAKAN to the last drop of our sweat.
    There will NO LOSS on our part whether u have or not those people in the cabinet.

  156. #156 by Jeffrey on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 11:41 am

    This is BN’s message “You have to decide if you want a louder voice in Parliament or representation in the Cabinet where they can be more effective in representing all communities”.

    This is the poser to Non Malay minority communities in general but to Malaysian Chinese in particular they are told that if they voted for the DAP, they would end up not having any representation in the government. It is couched in terms of a dilemma posed, and a veiled threat delivered…. The Chinese in particular are generally practical in approach and such a poser is calculated to have effect on them. (We are further advised that the MCA needed 30 seats to have a strong voice in government).

    On the eve of election I ask Non Malay minority voters to search their hearts and find your mettle.

    We have had already 50 years experience in “representation” in government and if that had been meaningful, would it have been necessary to present the poser today, the eve of election????

    The representation we have had is a representation of matters such as getting approvals for additional Chinese schools, classrooms, some funds for development of Chinese new villages, and a few Public Services Department (JPA) scholarships for Chinese students….I repeat what I said before that these educational concessions are what Malaysians of whatever racial origins are minimally entitled, as of right in the first place for which no special gratitude ought to be demanded from or reciprocated to that facilitator, the MCA!

    As regards fundamental issues that matter – issues that makes one feel one still has a place under the Malaysian Sun and issues of fundamental constitutional rights that make one feels one still has a rightful place as equal citizen – these are the issues that truly count, and that which many feel there is under representation or no representation at all by the communal parties that hold claim to the contrary……

    To argue that there is such representation just because some privileged members of one’s own community enjoy the patronage of some not so important, critical and powerful ministerial or deputy ministerial posts, and, as a price for that, have to whisper their communities’ case in muted tones behind closed doors, the outcome of which thereafter is entirely dependent on the so called magnanimity of the patron – and not what counts as right or wrong, fair or not fair – that is but a mere “symbolic and token”, some say sham, rather than real representation.

    When people get satisfied by something with that which is symbolic weityhout grasp for the real, then they are not clever, destined to be manipulated as slaves….

    If you have the intelligence and could find your pride, you will reject such carrot of illusory representation structured around form than substance. You would opt to roar like a hungry lion in Parliament than cringe like a dog just so you could be served some crummy dog’s food!

    After all what is parliament for if not to allow one’s voice to be heard in its august chambers loud and clear especially on issues pertaining to national interest?

    Aren’t we told, never often enough, that the nation is larger than race, national interest greater than community’s interest ???

    If that were the case then we should have a louder voice in parliament to debate about these than still appeal to narrow communal sentiments of communal “representation in government” in exchange for vote that after 50 years we should have transcended.

    Let me just say this – meaningful representation of political interest is, for all Malaysians a birthright. It should not be traded like some chip on some political power sharing formula that we could have only if we give our vote and support to some incumbent political party. It is a condition set that no free and right thinking people can honorably accept – this farce of an obselescent BN power sharing formula.

    Unless one still accepts and believes in this 50 year old BN power sharing formula – this is realy the crux of the issue – in a dilemma of Representation or Voice, I would cast the vote for Voice!

    Anwar Ibrahim predicted today the opposition is poised to deny the ruling coalition an outright two-thirds majority in the March 8 elections.

    Hope what Anwar said is going to be true come 9th March 2008!
    This is important election if we dont deny them 2/3 they will change the constitution as they are allowed to change it every 8 years if they are in power.

    Imagine if they change the constitution if they have the 2/3 majority, it will be harder for us to deny them in the future again. So vote wisely as the opposition didn’t ask to rule the country but just denying the 2/3 will do!

    So let’s stop them from getting 2/3 ! Vote opposition ! For for a better Malaysia !

  164. #164 by ALtPJK on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 12:09 pm

    Right on, Jeffrey.

    This is the very same message we get election after election for the last 39 years and non-Malay minorities fell for it everytime. And the result is:

    There was NO strong Opposition in Parliament to provide the necessary check and balance, to force the government to act justly, to prevent the numerous amendments to the Federal Constitution to take away our fundamental rights and freedom and to ensure that the policies of the government were just and fair.

    About the BN’s message “You have to decide if you want a louder voice in Parliament or representation in the Cabinet where they can be more effective in representing all communities”, it is not about effective in representing all communities anymore.

    It should now be about us ensuring that the next government does not get too arrogant so as to perpetuate self-serving agendas.

    In an age where Malaysia boasts of MSC, best IT infrastructure and Election Commission using hitech computers to compile electroal rolls how can we have duplicate names, phantom votes blah2 and rely on jurassaic technology to provide free paint jobs on people’s fingers (what a waste it’s not being used now).

    Well said Jeffrey. For too long the non-Malays communities have been trading short term expediency for long term misery. That so-called representation in the cabinet and government is meaningless now. I would prefer more voices in the Parliament highlighting issues across racial line, providing checks and balances, reducing abuse of power and bring greater accountability in public service. We have one day left to decide.

  169. #169 by AhPek on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 12:22 pm

    Sure,what you say perfectly makes sense amongst most if not all commenters here.These are the converted and most likely it is not going to make any difference to the outcome tomorrow.The ordinary run-of-the-mill Chinese is probably not aware of your type of ‘meaningful’ representation and big noise (if more opposition comes in) in Parliment probably also means trouble in the streets (trouble created by police) which is no good for business.
    This is Malaysia a country which is so mired in race politics that we find ourselves in shit street without a shovel today.The BN has become an expert in exploiting this issue which is exactly why Pak Lah is issuing this subtle threat about non representation for the Chinese in government is MCA is booted out by the Chinese community.He has even chosen to forgot that he did say that he is PM for all MALAYSIANS.
    How to counter that mindset? To me this is the crux of the problem and countering this is not chicken feed at all.Perhaps we can all help DAP in our own little ways by trying to influence those around us and make tomorrow a good day out for DAP.

  170. #170 by lakshy on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 12:40 pm

    AAB looks like he is bankrupt of ideas. What a wimp! What does he mean by threatening Malaysians? You threaten your own rakyat this way? Are you a sincere Malaysian then? Look Dato’ Seri AAB, didn’t you just recently say that you are not a PM for Malays only, but a PM for all Malaysians? Were you sleeping when you said that?

    And by the way the MIC and MCA have not done much for Indians and Chinese. The MIC and MCA have got scraps that umno has thrown at them like they would throw to the dogs. And these cheapskates have greedily lapped up these scraps. So no, its no loss to us if we vote them out.

    I remember them getting together to issue some memo to you, to voice concerns about Islamisation, but they chickened out after being chewed out by some junior umno minister. And you call these representatives of Indians and Chinese? Holy cow, these clown jesters seem to have forgotten that they are descendents of peoples with greater cultural and educational and historical lineage.

    What can your Semi Value do when the temples are being broken in his presence under the instructions of littel napoleons? And some of these temples are plder than our constitution and only because your napoleons refuse to grant them titles, they are being demolished. And that is in direct violation of what is stated in the Constitution. You cannot take away what is already there for the Indians and Chinese.

    So no, those clowns from MIC, Gerakan and MCA in your cabinet, are just that, clowns. They dont represent us.

    And if you say you wont look after us, then we dont have any respect for you. For a start, I wont vote for you or any of your clowns. Kapish DS AAB?

    Oh by the way, lets see how long you can last when all of us for whom you have declared you are not the leader, do not pay taxes!

    We dont want to just deny you a 2/3rds majority. We want you to spend time as the opposition. That will give you more maturity, and learn to respect the opposition and the rakyat. You seem to have forgotten who your boss is. Its the rakyat la you dumbo!

    After half a century of independence, BN is still in its infancy stage, refusing to grow up and face the real world. It is trying to hide itself in its nutshell and “enjoy” itself, acting in the most childish ways.

    What MCA is claiming this GE is even more ridiculous! It is telling the Chinese that it would be advisable to have MCA “fight” for rights in the government. What is there to “fight” for? Isn’t MCA part of the government? So why should it be fighting for anything? This is of course true only if MCA is not at par with UMNO in BN. If at all there is a need to “fight”, MCA should leave BN and become part of the opposition as it is “opposing” the policies of UMNO!!!!

  174. #174 by galaxy on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 12:50 pm

    Has MCA represented the interest of the Chinese? Has MIC represented the interest of the Indians? Has UMNO treated them as equal partners in the BN coalition? If no, then, what is the difference whether they are in BN or not?

    What is meaning of representation in the government when even the non-Malay BN parties leaders can’t even do anything in Parliament and Cabinet that represent their respective minority communities interests’ voices, after they were given a clear mandate in 2004?

    All the non-Malay BN parties leaders, if they wanted to do something for their communities, if at all they do it, had to resorted to begging from their master, UMNO. Representation in govenment is one thing, DOING something for the communities without fear or favour is another thing. Their representation in Parliament and government after 2004 is like they have not represent their respective communities at all. They have all being silence when UMNO had done something that is adverse to minority communities, minority communities rights have been taken away and all they do are sitting in Parliament and Cabinet keeping quiet that you can hear a pint drop waiting for the DAP and other oppositions to do or say something.

    Even if some brave non-Malay leaders did said something that publicly incrimninate the wrongdoings of their political master, they all either been shot down, disciplined and threatened by words and actions by their political master.

    There are tons of examples to this.

    Is this what they meant by representation in Cabinet and Parliament? It should be representation of a bunch dogs and cowards in Parliament and Cabinet waiting instructions from their political master with the KERISes in their hands.

  178. #178 by NotProudToBeMalaysian on Friday, 7 March 2008 - 1:24 pm

    Leaders of MCA,Gerakan,MIC or others component parties have to support the present ruling party even if they were to betray their forefathers.
    Just because of the benefits they get.
    Gerakan was an opposition before and I’m sure they knew that very well.
    What I don’t get is…, why are there still many others who do not get anything, running around supporting someone who is not doing things right.
    Maybe, these are the whole lot who needs to suffer in order to learn.

    What’s the point of having MCA, MIC, and Gerakan politicans elected into the BN government?

    Mahathir told us all: S Samy Vellu stifled Indian voices. Samy Vellu did not ask for assistance for Indians. The problem is that SV is preventing other Indians from having a say. SV never said that the Malays were committing genocide and ethnic cleansing. SV never said that. Why didn’t Samy Vellu say that?

    We are sure Mahathir could have told us the same thing about MCA and Gerakan politicians, who are only interested in looking after their own interests rather than the interests of all Malaysians.

    Make sure NONE of MCA, Gerakan, and MIC politicians get elected into our parliament and the various state legislative assemblies!!

This is a total disgrace and they are claiming to be more superior than the others? Can this be true? If at all BN is matured enough, stand up and fight like a gentleman!!! Face your opponents and take your opponents as they are.

    “Fight like a gentleman”? When so much of money is at stake ? When the right to steal may be taken away from them ? No, they won’t fight like gentlemen; they will slander, cheat, lie and try to steal the election. They can’t be everywhere – especially if the wind of change is strong.

    Do we need “running dogs” in the Cabinet?

    They only know how to play “fetch”, “sit”, “roll over”, “shut up”, “beg” and “play dead”.

    So it does not matter whether they are there or not. They have been castrated and their teeth pulled out.

    So go ahead, vote AGAINST them. Get rid of them. Better they are not there to embarass us.

    Let 8th of March 2008 be our NEW Independence Day.

    For those traveling out of Singapore back to our home country to vote for righteousness, just a word of advice – beware of bad traffic jams at both the Woodlands & Tuas checkpoint due to the Mas Selamat manhunt. Getting back to S’pore is also like that – heard the ICA are now fingerprinting visitors.

    Depart late at night (>11pm), reach early morning, vote & sleep. Get-up at 5pm & get ready for celebration of a national history of a BIG opposition & DAP win.

    BN deserved the thrashing they got. It is high time we sent those liars, cheat and bodohs away.

    Congratulations to DAP for a stirling performance.

    But now let us be humble and start working for a just nation full of security, freedom and equal oportunities for ALL MALAYSIANS>
