the hokey promise fulfilled...1 Malaysia slogan just empty bins


Putrajaya to favour those who backed BN in GE13, says Muhyiddin

The Barisan Nasional (BN) administration will direct “greater assistance” towards the communities that backed it during the general election, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said today, signalling a rocky path to reconciliation in the aftermath of the May 5 polls.

“The clear message is that the majority of the Malays, Indians, Bumiputera, Orang Asli, Siamese community as well as those in Sabah and Sarawak still support the BN.

“We will continue to give them greater assistance; that is what we will do,” the deputy prime minister was quoted as saying by state news agency Bernama at a BN thanksgiving function in Kundang Ulu, Johor today, in apparent continuation of the vilification of Chinese voters following the general election.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had spoken of a need to reconcile the country immediately after the poll outcome was announced, but it was not a theme that was universally accepted in the BN coalition.

Right-wing elements in Umno along with party mouthpiece Utusan Malaysia have sought to frame the May 5 polls as a Chinese-versus-Malay vote, after Najib’s reference to a so-called “Chinese tsunami” following the election.

Utusan Malaysia had front-paged an incendiary headline titled “Apa lagi Cina mahu?” (What more do the Chinese want?) while tabloid Kosmo! took the blame game further, with an even more overt title, “Pengundi Cina bersikap talam dua muka (Chinese voters are two-faced)” a day after polling.

However, analysts instead pointed to a growing urban-rural divide as well as the ascendance of the “Bangsa Malaysia” who did not vote along racial lines, as the main factors for the outcome.

BN politicians such as former Gerakan president Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon, MIC’s S. Vell Paari and Umno’s Shahrir Samad have also rejected the attempt to pin the blame for the ruling coalition’s worst-ever electoral showing solely on the Chinese community.

BN won 133 seats in the 222-seat federal Parliament, seven fewer than in the 2008 polls.

An apparent crackdown against opposition politicians and activists for sedition has also cast doubt over the government’s commitment to reconciliation.

Today, Muhyiddin also warned that the government will come down hard on those who threaten the country’s various pillars, saying this was what the people had voted for.

“I want to reiterate that we will take firmer action to protect all the institutions that had been established to look after the development, harmony, solidarity, security and peace in the country,” he said.






What happened to the promise of a PM for all Malaysians? The Government of Malaysia is a different entity from the political coalition of the BN. The Government must treat all citizens equally. If this simple concept cannot be understood by the person in question then I reckon he has no right to govern.

Way to further alienate those who are against your illegitimate regime of autocratic kleptocrats, BN. What ever happened to "reconciliation" and trying to win back the urban vote?

“The clear message is that the majority of the Malays, Indians, Bumiputera, Orang Asli, Siamese community as well as those in Sabah and Sarawak still support the BN.

so you're saying, Chinese will be alienated and punished for the next 5 years? Fine. Bring it on. The other 51% of Malays, Indians, Bumiputera, Orang Asli, Siamese are with us.

Is BN the Govt of Malaysia or the Govt of BN voters of Malaysia? It seems that even BN is not over the GE13 yet while they complain that PR is still unhappy with the GE13 results.

No PR leaders would have made such a statement. If Anwar became the PM he would have favored even the BN supporters. The government should favor all Malaysians regardless if they are your supporters or not.
