Three bad news for Malaysia in one day – when will the fall of Malaysia end?

Firstly, there was the report that Malaysia’s mobile internet connection experience is at the bottom at the global and regional level, according to several global research reports.

Among 100 countries, Malaysia ranked lower than Asean neighbours Vietnam, Thailand, and even poverty-stricken Laos when it came to “Best Mobile Experience” related to 4G LTE wireless broadband speeds, based on global independent data company Tutela’s report recently. Read the rest of this entry »

Some fallacies about the Malacca general election result of Nov. 20

(Versi BM)

There are many fallacies about the outcome of the Malacca general election of November 20, 2021.

Firstly, that it was a landslide victory of UMNO and Barisan Nasional, when it was landslide victory of seats but not of votes – as although the BN won two-thirds majority of the state assembly seats, it won only an infinitesimal increase of 0.55 per cent of the 2018 votes cast to secure 38.39% of the votes in the Malacca general election last Saturday.

The most ominous implication of the Malacca general election is that Najib may become the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia

(Versi BM)

The most ominous implication of the Malacca general election is that Najib Razak may become the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia in the national 15th General
Election.

Is this what Malaysians deserve, to get rid of the man who made Malaysia infamous as a “kleptocracy at its worst” and to receive him back four years later as a saviour of the nation freed of all corruption charges as if to install a model kleptocracy for the world? Read the rest of this entry »

One lesson of the Malacca general election

(Versi BM)

There are many lessons to be drawn from the Malacca general election last Saturday but it is counter-productive to zero in on any personality by putting all the blame and faults on him, in this case the Pakatan Harapan leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

First, there is a need for a change of political mindset by all political leaders. Read the rest of this entry »

Is Malacca general election the stepping stone for Najib to become the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia?

The Facebook video of Najib Razak raises many questions, chief of which is whether the Malacca general election is to be the stepping stone for Najib to become the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

From his Facebook Video, Najib was evidently speaking as the commander-in-chief of the UMNO campaign in the Malacca general election and the question automatically arises whether the Malacca general election will be a stepping stone for Najib to become the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

UMNO leadership will be tempted by Malacca general election results to rush to hold the 15th General Election for the country as early as possible, even early 2022

The UMNO leadership will be tempted by the Malacca general election results to tear up the confidence-supply-reform (CSR) memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed between Prime Minister Ismail Sabri and Pakatan Harapan to rush for the 15th General Election for the country to held as early as possible, even early 2022.

This is because based on the Malacca general election results, UMNO and BN will be able to take over the Federal government on its own, and may regain two-thirds majority in Parliament and even free the top UMNO leaders from corruption charges if the 15th General Elections is held in early 2022.

Malacca General Election the most extraordinary of the 22 general elections in my experience – an election where physical campaigning is banned

(Versi BM)

The Malacca General Election is the most extraordinary of the 22 general elections in my experience in the last 56 years – an election where all forms of physical campaigning are banned.

I have gone through 12 national general elections, nine Sarawak state general elections and countless by-elections but this is the first time that we have an election where there are no public rallies, ceramahs, talks and walkabouts – which put the Opposition parties at a great disadvantage.

Nobody can be certain what would be the outcome of the Polling Day tomorrow. Read the rest of this entry »

Call on Malacca voters to represent Malaysians to vote against PN and BN tomorrow for the loss of nearly 30,000 lives and nearly 2.6 million Covid-19 cases as well as for Malaysia having the longest Covid-19 wave in the world

(Versi BM)

Tomorrow is Polling Day for the voters of Malacca for the Malacca general election.

I call on Malacca voters to represent Malaysia to vote against both the Perikatan Nasional (PN) and Barisan Nasional (BN) for the loss of nearly 30,000 lives, nearly 6,000 Brought-in-Dead covid-19 deaths and nearly 2.6 million Covid-19 cases, as well as for Malaysia having the longest Covid-19 wave in the world lasting over 14 months since the Sabah state general in September last year.

I have been guided all my life by Wen Tianxiang’s immortal words “All men are mortal but my loyalty will illuminate the annals of history forever” and have never compromised my loyalty to Malaysia to make it a world-class great nation

(Versi BM)

Two days ago, I visited the Sam Tiong Keng temple in Semabok, Malacca which is in the Banda Hilir state constituency where we are fielding Malacca DAPSY Deputy Chief Leong Chau Yan.

I was in for a surprise as the main historic figure the temple was dedicated to was Wen Tianxiang, the poet-politician of the Southern Song dynasty, who chose death instead of betrayal of his loyalty to Kublai Khan and the Yuan dynasty.

Call on the people of Malacca to use the Malacca general election on Saturday to launch a “Centennial Save Malaysia Campaign“ for Malaysia to stop the regression of past half-a-century and to become a world-class great nation by 2057

(Versi BM)

Thirty-seven years ago in 1984, the UMNO Malacca State Government wanted to demolish Bukit China with 12,500 graves of various communities – mostly
Chinese but there are also Malay and Portuguese graves – for commercial development to build shopping complexes and condominiums.

DAP launched a “Save Bukit China campaign” and united not only the people of Malacca, of also of Malaysia, comprising all races and religions, to preserve the Bukit China cemetery hill as a Malaysian national heritage site. Read the rest of this entry »

Will Malacca general election polling day on Saturday 20th November see daily new Covid-19 cases and Covid-19 deaths in Malaysia return to pre-emergency days of January 11, 2021 of less than 2,232 cases and four deaths or will it have more Covid-19 cases and deaths than Nomination Day on 8th November?

(Versi BM)

In another three days is the Malacca general election – a general election which the DAP and the Pakatan Harapan do not want but will have far-reaching implications and consequences for the political future not only Malacca, but of Malaysia.

One question Malaysians want to know is whether the Malacca general election on Polling Day on Saturday, 20th November 2021 will see daily new Covid-19 cases and Covid-19 deaths return to the pre-emergency days on January 11, 2021 of less than 2,232 cases and four deaths or will there be more daily Covid-19 cases and Covid-19 deaths than Nomination Day on 8th November?

Does Ismail Sabri’s “Keluarga Malaysia” includes a ban of gambling and liquor in Malaysia and withdrawal of support for the five Rukun Negara nation-building principles?

(Versi BM)

I have said that Ismail Sabri, the ninth Prime Minister of Malaysia, is the weakest Prime Minister in Malaysian history, and this is confirmed by Kedah Mentri Besar’s action banning gambling in Kedah.

Ismail Sabri should clarify whether his “Keluarga Malaysia” includes a ban on gambling and liquor in Malaysia and the withdrawal of support for the five Rukun Negara nation-building principles of belief in God, loyalty to King and country, supremacy of the Constitution, the rule of law and courtesy and morality.

As PAS banned gambling in Kedah and raised the liquor issue violating the Rukun Negara principles of Malaysian nation-building to get votes in the Malacca general election, let Malacca voters solidly reject PAS, PN and BN candidates for this disloyalty to Rukun Negara

As PAS banned gambling in Kedah and raised the liquor issue violating the Rukun Negara principles of Malaysian nation-building to get votes in the Malacca general election, let Malacca voters solidly reject PAS, PN and BN candidates for this disloyalty to Rukun Negara.

I am eighty years old and I had never bought a 4D in my life. But it is wrong, extremist and intolerant to try moral policing in a multi-racial, multi-lingual, multi-religious and multicultural Malaysia. Read the rest of this entry »

Let Malacca general election be the start of a new journey for Malaysia to become a world-class great nation by 2050

(Versi BM)

We are now close to the finishing line for the Malacca general election on Saturday, November 20, 2021.

There are only four days left before Malacca voters cast their vote in a general election they do not want, but which will have a far-reaching effect on the future of Malaysia – determining whether the Malaysian Dream could be realised in 2050 to become a world-class great nation, instead of continuing to lose out to one nation after another like in the past half-a-century.

Election Commission has completely misconstrued its duties to conduct “free, fair and clean” Malacca general election and has become agents of Health Ministry to prevent spread of Covid-19 infection, when this is the work of Health Ministry officials themselves

The Election Commission has completely misconstrued its duties to conduct “free, fair and clean” Malacca general election and has become the agents of the Health Ministry to prevent spread of Covid-19 infections, when this is the work of the Health Ministry officials themselves.

The Election Commission should ensure the highest voter turnout on Polling Day on Nov. 20, but it seems to be doing its utmost to ensure a low voter turnout. Read the rest of this entry »

Call on Malacca voters to spearhead a long-term Malaysian First campaign lasting 20 to 30 years to make Malaysia a world-class great nation

(Versi BM)

I visited Gadek constituency yesterday morning where we are fielding G. Saminathan, who was falsely accused as a Tamil Tiger terrorist and wrongly detained until his release just before the Sheraton Move conspiracy in February 2020.

Fortunately, Saminathan was released before the Sheraton Move conspiracy toppled the democratically-elected Pakatan Harapan Government after 22 months or he and others similarly detained under the bogus charges of being linked to Sri Lankan Tamil Tigers terrorists would be in incarceration for quite some time.

Malacca general election seeing two contrasting phenomenon: daily Covid-19 cases and deaths rising in Malaysia since nomination day in Malacca on Nov. 8 while Election Commission over-zealous in banning all forms of physical campaigning

The Health Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin has urged Malaysians to remain vigilant as the Covid-19 national infectivity rate climbed to the highest level since August.

We are seeing two contrasting phenomenon in the Malacca general election – daily Covid-19 cases and deaths in Malaysia rising above that on Nomination Day in Malacca on November 8, 2021 while the Election Commission over-zealous in banning all forms of physical campaigning in the general election.

Will Muhyiddin continue to support Ismail Sabri as Prime Minister if Bersatu is completely wiped out by UMNO in the Malacca general election?

There is a lot of attention in the Malacca general election on “political frogs” but there is no proper discussion on political principles and integrity as if it is a sin and an unpardonable crime to change political parties.

Winston Churchill changed political parties twice, firstly as a Conservative when he first became Member of Parliament in 1901, but he became a Liberal in 1904 protesting against “protectionism” in the Conservative Party. In 1923, he returned to the Conservative Party in protest against Liberal-Labour co-operation.

Was Churchill wrong? I would not say so, as Churchill’s political shift was one of principle and he was prepared to face the verdict of the electorate.

This was why when I suggested in Parliament on March 21, 1978 for a law to prevent party-hopping, I said: Read the rest of this entry »

Call on Malacca voters to look at the Covid-19 statistics in Malaysia when they cast their vote for the Malacca general election

(Versi BM)

I want to make a straightforward call today – to ask the Malacca voters to look at the Covid-19 statistics for Malaysia when they cast their vote for the Malacca general election on November 20, 2021.

The reason is simple: The Covid-19 pandemic, not only in Malacca but in Malaysia, affects every aspect of our life in the country – the economy, the job situation, schools and universities, travel, the private space of Malaysians whether in sports, recreation, social or family life.

Malacca in the seventies and eighties was the front-line state in the Malaysian First campaign – now the torch has come back to Malacca

Many thought I am a Malaccan. They are wrong.

I was born, bred and educated in Batu Pahat, Johore up to the end of my secondary education.

I first visited Malacca in April 1955 when I was in Form One and cycled with two classmates Tan Tik Seng and Allan Goh Chay Foo from Batu Pahat to Malacca during the April school holidays. Read the rest of this entry »
