M’sians can forgo Ghani, but not Kit Siang

Today is a crucial day for Malaysia. It is crucial that a corrupt government be defeated in this momentous GE13. Malaysians must rise to this challenge and create a golden opportunity for all Malaysians.

Tied up with this effort is the fate of Lim Kit Siang. Kit Siang is a true-blooded Malaysian patriot who has sacrificed his entire life for the good of this nation. He has been incarcerated in Kamunting twice unfairly and unjustly but they could not break his spirit or deter him from his pursuit of a just society.

He has stayed the course in spite of many tremendous obstacles. He has criss-crossed the country bringing hope and opportunity for change. He is the epitome of selfless struggle so that Malaysia will attain its place as a truly democratic and incorruptible country among the nations of the world.

This man’s fate and fortune is in the hands of voters in Gelang Patah. The voters here are poised to create history for all of us. Their overwhelming support for Kit Siang will spur the tsunami to lash across the whole of Johor and bring about a new dawn of hope and opportunity for Malaysia and Malaysians.

Malaysia can do without Abdul Ghani Othman. There are thousands of Umno members who can easily take his place and replace him without any loss to this nation. His defeat in the election will not be a shattering event for Malaysia.

But for Kit Siang – and for all Malaysians – his loss in this election will be unthinkable. It would be devastating if Kit Siang were to lose. His loss would be irreplaceable. The energy and dedication that he has brought to this democratic cause can never be emulated by any other. No one can replicate Kit Siang!

It is the prayer of all Malaysians of goodwill that he be elected and returned to Parliament. This may be his last election. Let him, if he has to step down after this election, go in glory with the admiration and affection of all Malaysians. We owe this to him.

    Today was the only chance to be ready for the day when we no longer have Sdr. Lim Kit Siang, Karpal Singh, Anwar, Nik Aziz, The truth while the second generation of opposition leaders are quite talented, they are not quite the repository and talent that these leaders are…

    If its not done, then it may be a long time before another run for change is possible..The truth is PR felt the absent of a virile powerhouse Nik Aziz this time. Without more of these crops of leaders at their top form, it just won’t happen maybe for a long long time..

    At this moment I am filled with trepidation. Self proclaimed experts in numerology have predicted in advance that he would lose. Not that I believe this but his twitter at 1 am (Very conscious while I make rounds in Gelang Patah on Polling Day 2day could be last day in my 47-year political struggle 4new/just Malaysia”, and William Case’s 3 pm observations from Johore under title”Pakatan not likely to win, Malay support lukewarm” don’t help to lift the gloom.

    Congrats to Kit. Without meaning to take credit away from LKS, we also have to thank Mahathir for his back-handed way of driving voters away from his Trojan Horse and into the DAP. Keep sprouting lies and nonsense Mahathir, and you will do LKS a big favour.
