Malaysians must not be disheartened by loss of one parliamentary and five state assembly seats during Nomination Day yesterday but must work harder for People’s Power to triumph over Najib and UMNO/BN

I was confronted by a concerned Malaysian during the Johor Jaya walkabout asking what to do now that Pakatan Harapan has lost one parliamentary and five state assembly seats during Nomination Day yesterday.

I am sure that this is a question many Malaysians are asking, and my answer is that we should not be disheartened but must treble our efforts to bring about political change in Malaysia and demonstrate that People’s Power can triump over the chicaneries and trickeries of Datuk Seri Najib Razak and UMNO/BN.

What has happened so far has only validated what the international magazine Economist reported recently that Najib Razak is a thief and would steal the 2018 general election.

The constituency redelineation, which is the worst gerrymandering in the nation’s 61-year history, together with the 3Ms of money, mass media and (government) machinery, the biggest theft of elections is set to take place on May 9, 2018.

This is why we must change the rules of the game, so that these calculations of these UMNO/BN strategists could be proven wrong. Read the rest of this entry »

Call on people of Iskandar Puteri to be the pivot of the national campaign to Save Malaysia and to take the first step for Malaysia to become a normal democracy

UMNO is confident that Barisan Nasional can defeat me in Iskander Puteri parliamentary constituency, believing that if MCA can get the support of 30 per cent of the Chinese votes, UMNO would do the rest.

UMNO strategists on how Barisan Nasional could defeat me in Iskander Puteri may be right or wrong, as only when the votes are opened and counted on May 9 would we know whether the UMNO/BN plan to end my 52-year political career in Iskandar Puteri will succeed.

But it is very sad that everywhere, BN coalition is just a political contraption to hide UMNO’s real design to further marginalse the other Barisan Nasional component parties.

I am reminded of the words of the UMNO veteran and Johor Baru Member of Parliament, when we met at the steps of the entrance of Parliament in the last week of the 13th Parliament.

He asked whether I was contesting against him in the Johor Baru parliamentary seat, and when I told him that it was not a DAP seat but a PKR seat, Shahrir said:“What DAP wants, DAP gets; what DAP wants, DAP takes”. Read the rest of this entry »

Although Pakatan Harapan has lost one seat on Nomination Day, efforts must be trebled nation-wide to reach the target of winning 119 parliamentary seats on Polling Day on May 9

Ten day ago, I said that Pakatan Harapan should set a target of winning 120 of the total of 222 parliamentary seats to earn the clear and unmistakable right to form the new Malaysian Government in Putrajaya which would show that a decisive majority of Malaysians no longer a kleptocratic and corrupt Barisan Nasional.

I said that this target is achievable especially if a Malaysian tsunami sweeps across the nation bringing together Malays, Chinese, Indians, Ibans, Kadazans and others to vote against the BN and to strongly support Pakatan Harapan to form the next federal government.

To achieve this target of winning 120 parliamentary seats, Pakatan Harapan must defend all 89 parliament seats won by the opposition in the 13th General Election in 2013 and win another 31 out of the 56 marginal BN parliament seats in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak.
