Five historic changes in 14GE on May 9, 2018

I call on the voters of Kedah to write history by bringing about five historic changes in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018, viz:

1. Change the Malaysian Prime Minister;
2. Change the Malaysian Government in Putrajaya;
3. Change the Kedah Mentri Besar;
4. Change the Kedah State Government; and
5. Change the federal and state government polices which are detrimental to the interests and welfare of Malaysians.

I have just read the Malaysiakini report of a Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) survey which predicted that the Kedah State Assembly will be faced with a hung assembly following the May 9 polls.

According to Mohd Azizuddin Mohd Sani, who headed the research team, BN was predicted to win 16 out of 36 seats, followed by Pakatan Harapan (12) and PAS (8).

I conducted a straw poll immediately among the people who are here to attend the DAP ceramah, and there is incredulity and disbelief that PAS could win as many as eight seats, some thinking that it would be a miracle if PAS could win two seats!

There is also disbelief that Barisan Nasional could win 16 seats as it seems to be majority view that Pakatan Harapan can win more than half the Kedah State Assembly seats to form the next State Government of Kedah.

May 9 is therefore set to be a historic watershed in Malaysian History.

If the people of Philipines can change their President on May 9 two years ago, and the peop[le of South Korea changed their President on the same date last year, there is no reason why on May 9 this year, Malaysians cannot change the Prime Minister.

Nobody is interested in Arul’s fairy tales but Najib should step forward to account fully for the 1MDB “kleptocracy at its worst”

New Straits Times today carried an extraordinary headline: “Ask me anything, Arul Kanda tells DAP leaders” on the invitation of the 1MDB Chief Executive Officer Arul Kanda Kandasamy to DAP leaders to a townhall session in Penang to explain issues about the 1MDB.

Let me tell Arul – that he is at least two years too late. Furthermore, nobody is interested in Arul’s fairy tales about the 1MDB scandal, as the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, should step forward to account fully for the 1MDB “kleptocracy at its worst” which has landed Malaysia with the ignominy, infamy and iniquity as a global kleptocracy!

In the past 16 days, Arul was suddenly holding court almost everyday, purportedly seeking to explain the various facets of the octopian 1MDB money-laundering scandal.

I was surprised that Arul had suddenly become a daily publicity-seeker on the 1MDB scandal but now it is obvious it was all part of Najib’s 14th General Election strategy to pull the wool over everybody’s eyes, neutralise any Pakatan Harapan offensive on the 1MDB scandal and to remove the sting from multi-faceted octopian scandal of the 1MDB “kleptocracy at its worst” – to use the description of the United States Attorney-General Jeff Sessions.

Why didn’t Najib, who must legally, politically and personally bear full responsibility for the 1MDB scandal, tell Malaysians and the world in the past three years: Ask me anything about the 1MDB? Read the rest of this entry »


If Mahathir is anti-Chinese, why MCA leaders were prepared to serve under him as MCA Ministers, MPs, State Excos and State Assembly reps for 22 years?

Midway in the 11-day 14th General Election, the MCA/UMNO/Barisan Nasional election campaign has take a turn towards greater irresponsibility and dangerous trend in the politics of race, religion, fear, hate and lies.

Lies and falsehoods had been spread to accuse me of being anti-Malay and anti-Islam to create fear and hate among the Malays.

Now, there is a new twist that Tun Mahathir is anti-Chinese by MCA propagandists.

Let me ask the MCA leadership to explain why, if Mahathir is anti-Chinese, MCA leaders were prepared to serve under him as MCA Ministers, Members of Parliament, State Executive Councillors and State Assembly representatives for 22 years?

I was in Telemong, Karak and Lurah Bilut earlier before coming to Raub, and in Raub and Bentong parliamentary constituencies, there was the giant billboard of the MCA President Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai with China President, Xi Jinping, giving the impression to foreign visitors that Xi, the great Chinese leader, is contesting in Pahang in Malaysia’s 14th General Election on May 9, 2018.
