Two questions asked by Malaysians: Will the Anwar Government last five years and will there be another Sheraton Move conspiracy to topple an elected government?

(Versi BM)

Two questions asked by Malaysians are:

  1. Will the Anwar Government last five years until the 16th General Election in 2027?
  2. Will there be another Sheraton Move conspiracy to topple an elected government to usher in a third backdoor government in Malaysia?

This is why I support the proposal by the Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim to have a vote of confidence motion in Parliament on December 19, 2022 as the PAS President, Hadi Awang is trying to create another Sheraton Move conspiracy to topple the Anwar Ibrahim premiership.

Can all political coalitions and parties agree that Malaysia should be the first nation in the world to deal with the bane of the information era — the toxic politics of lies, fear, hate, race, and religion?

(Versi BM)

The 15th General Election on November 19, 2022 has given rise to an “unity government” but can all political coalitions and political parties agree that Malaysia should be the first nation in the world to deal with the bane of the information era — the toxic politics of lies, fear, hate, race, and religion — which could destroy Malaysia or reduce it to a third-rate, failed, and divided nation in another three or four decades?

There is no guarantee that the task for a national reset by returning to the nation-building principles the nation’s founding fathers enshrined in the Malaysian Constitution and the Rukun Negara will succeed nor is it a mission which could be accomplished by one Prime Minister or in one general election, as it will take three or four decades.

Odyssey of a Malaysia patriot in search of the Malaysia Dream of Malaysia as among the best nations in the world

I am 81 years old and am not a candidate for the 15th Malaysian parliamentary general election on Nov. 19, 2022.

For the first time in 53 years since the 1969 general election, I was outside the Nomination Day centre as only three persons were allowed into the Nomination Centre – the candidate, the proposer and the seconder of which I was not one of the three. Read the rest of this entry »

Will the tipping point where the Malay voters are no more misled by UMNO and PAS lies, falsehood and disinformation that DAP is communist, anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Royalty take place in the 15th General Election?

(Versi BM)

Will the tipping point where the Malay voters are no more misled by UMNO and PAS likes, falsehood and disinformation that the DAP is communist, anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Royalty take place in the 15th General Election?

This will determine whether the DAP parliamentary candidate for Jerai, Zulhazmi Shariff, can make a breakthrough and become a Member of Parliament on November 19, 2022. Read the rest of this entry »

Call on Penang voters to lead Malaysian voters to make Malaysia among the best in the world and not a failed and rogue state like a kleptocracy on Malaysia Centennial in another four decades

This is the first time I am outside a general election nomination centre for 53 years since 1969.

I have never proposed any candidate for high office to Mahathir when he was Prime Minister in the 22 months of Pakatan Harapan government

The assurance by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim that the DAP would not be in control of Pakatan Harapan if the coalition under his watch wins the coming polls shows both the degree of toxic politics of race and religion which had been disseminated in the current 15th general election campaign and the likelihood that Anwar Ibrahim will be the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

The DAP had been accused of controlling Pakatan Harapan when it was in government for 22 months from the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018. Read the rest of this entry »

MPs must be long-distance runners, by relay or otherwise, in pursuit of the dream of a better Malaysia for our children and children’s children

I contested the Bukit Bendera parliamentary constituency in the 10th General Election on Nov. 29, 1999 and was defeated – the first time I was defeated since I took part in parliamentary elections in 1969.

The Barisan Alternative of DAP, KeAdilan, PAS and PRM failed in its objective to end the UMNO/BN political hegemony by ending its two-thirds majority in Parliament! Read the rest of this entry »

The best way to remember Dr. Chan Man Hin is to continue his vision of a Malaysian Dream – a world class great plural nation which is honest, effective and incorruptible

(Versi BM)

The best way to remember Dr. Chen Man Hin, founder Chairman of Democratic Action Party for 30 years, and who have dedicated over five decades of his life to Malaysia, is to continue his vision of a Malaysian Dream – a world class great plural nation which is honest, effective and incorruptible.

I thank the longest-serving Inspector-General of Police, Tun Haniff Omar, for the declassification of a over-50 year Official Secrets Act document – the statement which I made to the police while in police custody at the Kuala Selangor Police Station lock-up under the Internal Security Act after I rejected advice not to return to Malaysia and flew back to Malaysia on 18th May 1969.

Is the jailing of former Prime Minister Najib Razak the tipping point for the Malays, who form the dominant majority in Malaysia, to realise that we must all become Malaysians First and not Malay first, Chinese first, Indian First, Kadazan first or Iban first if Malaysia is to succeed as a world-class great nation?

(Versi BM)

Since the jailing of Najib Razak for the monstrous mega 1MDB financial scandal with the dismissal of his appeal by the Federal Court on 23rd August 2022, I have been wrestling with the question:

Whether the jailing of former Prime Minister Najib Razak is the tipping point for Malays in the country, who form the dominant majority in Malaysia, to realise that we must all become Malaysian First, and not Malay first, Chinese first, Indian first, Kadazan first or Iban first if Malaysia is to succeed as a world-class great nation?

National Day in 2022 is diametrically different from National Day in the last two years of 2020 and 2021 – as there is now hope and anticipation instead of black despair and hopelessness

(Versi BM)

The National Day today in 2022 is diametrically different from the National Day in the last two years of 2020 and 2021 – as there is now hope and anticipation instead of black despair and a sense of hopelessness.

In 2020 was the first National Day after the greatest political betrayal in the nation’s history when the Sheraton Move political conspiracy toppled the Pakatan Harapan government and shortened its rule from a mandate for five years to 22 months.

In tribute of Dr. Chen Man Hin (6): Sublime life leaving footprints on the sands of time

In tribute of Dr. Chen Man Hin (4) – “A Tower of Strength in a Time of Darkness”

(Versi BM)

In the early years of DAP, nobody could predict that DAP would be able to survive the onslaught of the UMNO-Barisan Nasional political behemoth, which exercised political hegemony for several decades.

In fact, in the early seventies, a deputy prime minister declared that DAP was “one foot in the grave” and everyone expected the DAP to expire soon after.

But a determined and idealistic band of Malaysians was committed to the Malaysian Dream where every Malaysian, regardless of race, religion and region, is an equal Malaysian citizen and where it is possible to unite all Malaysians despite our ethnic, linguistic, religious and cultural diversity, to make Malaysia a world-class great nation.

The time has come to debunk the sea of lies, fake news and false allegations which had been polluting the political arena in the last few years.

The Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri tried to justify the Sheraton Move conspiracy at the Selangor Barisan Nasional convention on Sunday when he justified the Sheraton Move which unconstitutionally and undemocratically toppled the elected Pakatan Harapan government after 22 months on the grounds of DAP dominance in the Pakatan Harapan government.
