Roadblocks seen in redelineation not give face to UMNO dogs redrawing decided indiscriminately

EC do the trick help Umno-BN in in willful darkness suddenly  and now wants to do the trick redrawing

The redelineation exercise of parliamentary constituencies due this year is expected to be the country’s most complicated yet.

This is because the opposition has more than one-third of the seats in Parliament, which allows it to block the creation of new constituencies, and hence new seats..

In the past, the Election Commission (EC) has had little problem getting its reviews approved by Parliament, as the Barisan Nasional (BN) government had enjoyed a two-thirds majority of seats. But BN, which won last month’s polls with 133 of 222 seats, failed to regain the two-thirds majority, which it lost for the first time in the 2008 polls.

The review could thus see fierce debates in Parliament, which convenes on June 26. The EC acknowledges that it will not be easy this time.

It will take a lot of negotiations with both sidesThe negotiations will be on which constituency ought to be split or merged to better reflect the country’s political representation of the people.

The opposition Pakatan Rakyat (PR) has complained that current boundaries favour BN and, further, denied the opposition a victory at the last general election.

For instance, Kapar in Selangor — won by PR — has more than 140,000 voters, while Putrajaya, won by BN, has fewer than 16,000 voters. This effectively means one vote in Putrajaya is worth nine votes in Kapar..

The delineation process will be a test of whether both the BN and PR can work together with the EC.

In  some constituencies having too many voters, and others, too few.There should be more constituencies in view of the larger population in several places. But it has to be done consistently with certain best practices and principles laid out, and not give advantage to one side only..






Both BN and PR take the 505 results to court SHOW that the current EC is NOT DOING their job therefore should be FIRED especially the 2 top joker.

The redelineation will not get the go, Simply because the EC no 1 and no 2 are not to be trusted to do a fair and sincere job. They must go first.

We are a fake democracy; we can't do thing impartially and in a non-partisan way, more so the current EC members are all BN appointees. I suggest we get respected international personalities to draw and demarcate the constituencies for us. Don't be shy, I suggest UN conducts the election for us.

Before 2008, UMNO/BN did what they like in the parliament , amending and re-amending the constitution anyhow they like with all the traitor's component parties nodding heads literally like a lap dogs ! Some human beings can literally sell their souls for a little handouts without feeling of guilt and conscience !

Street protests may be only way to push for polls reform

Polls reform group Bersih 2.0 has conceded that taking to the streets could be the only way left to fight for polls reform should its campaign to clean up the election system through legal channels fail.

However,we  will first use its “People’s Tribunal” as the chief platform to “scrutinise” the allegations of fraud committed in Election 2013 where its findings will be the basis for its advocacy work for polls reform.

We will go with the tribunal first. Depending on the findings we will push for relevant reform. If that fails then a protest may be the only option..

The “people’s tribunal” will serve as a “moral force” to investigate and publicly expose alleged fraud in the May 5 general election.

The tribunal and its findings will also underpin its fight for the resignation of all the present Election Commission (EC) line-up following accusations of bias. Bersih and Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders have also made this a key condition to bilateral talks on polls reform.

But the Najib administration’s insistence on the EC’s independence means it is unlikely to agree to the condition. The EC chairman, Abdul Aziz Yusof, has also said that the commission will not bow down to pressure.

The impasse could well force Bersih and the opposition to resort to street protests as a last recourse.

Bersih has held three massive street protests in the past. The violent clampdown on the demonstrations, especially the third rally, drew widespread domestic and international condemnation on the Najib administration which later forced it to set up a parliamentary panel to oversee polls reform.

Although the move initially gave hope for constructive dialogue on electoral reform, Putrajaya’s failure to implement most of the recommendations made by the panel prompted Bersih and the opposition to revive the fight to clean up the election system.

The campaign intensified after the EC was accused of rigging the May 5 ballot to give the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition a win.

The EC have failed to defend itself and explain the massive irregularities uncovered during the intensely fought Election 2013 including its failure to administer the indelible ink system to prevent double voting and inaction on the tainted integrity of the electoral roll.

The EC does not enjoy public confidence. They have failed to act independently and they have failed in executing the indelible ink process effectively.

The importance of that process cannot be underestimated. It was a recommendation of the PSC (parliamentary select committee) and it was introduced to avoid double voting.

The opposition has filed more than 30 election petitions to challenge some of the election results. It has also filed several civil suits in a bid to impeach the EC line-up and prevent them from conducting the constituency redelineation exercise by year-end.

Unbalanced constituencies and lopsided redrawing are seen as key factors to BN’s dominance while the ruling coalition is seen benefiting every time a redelineation exercise is held, academics have noted.

This EC should not be allowed to carry out the redelineation exercise.They propose to do it on the present electoral roll which requires serious cleaning up. They have this far shown no inclination to do that..






the rakyat's mouth has been muzzled...what else can we do when the intended three branches of powers have been compromised and their independence are no longer upheld?
It seems that nowadays every supposedly independent authorities are under the control of 1party, how will the country progress.

Imagine, contesting in a football match where its final outcome has been pre-determined...the referee. the linesmen and even the ball boy is biased towards 1party...

The Rakyat need to have Bersih or Taksim Square to have EC reforms.Bersih 4 n 5 or similar taksim Square will have participation from all races as in 505 rallies. Otherwise, nothing will change.

The EC must be shut down immediately, period. They have continuously lied to the people and gave unreasonable excuses for their failures

remember....this country does not belong to your father...The Dewan Rakyat Speaker’s threat to drop Pakatan Rakyat (PR) elected representatives as Members of Parliament

The Dewan Rakyat Speaker’s threat to drop Pakatan Rakyat (PR) elected representatives as Members of Parliament is unlawful and exposes his blatant bias towards the opposition.

Pandikar Amin Mulia has no legal ground to issue the threat, claiming that the Parliament Standing Orders clearly compel the Secretary of the Dewan Rakyat to administer the oath to any MP who has yet to do so.

Pandikar’s threat is unlawful and in blatant breach of Dewan Rakyat Standing Orders and the Federal Constitution. Under the standing orders, the Setiausaha of the Dewan Rakyat is bound to administer the oath to any MP who has not yet taken the oath.

This is clear from Rule 5(2) of the Standing Orders which states that ‘a member who has not previously taken the oath may present himself at the table’ and the ‘oath shall be administered to him..

This morning Pandikar said opposition elected representatives will be dropped as MPs if they choose to boycott the swearing-in process, citing the Federal Constitution in claiming that any lawmaker who misses the swearing-in process without valid reasons will be automatically dropped in six months.

According to the Speaker, the Standing Order also states that the swearing in cannot take place beyond the stipulated time, which is the first day of the sitting.

It is shocking and unprecedented for the Speaker to make such unlawful threats against MPs duly elected by the rakyat.

Pandikar’s outrageous threat exposes his blatant bias against Pakatan MPs and disgraces the high office he occupies.

The accusations of bias against the Sabah-born Speaker is not new. During the 12th parliamentary sitting, Pandikar’s tenure as the House Secretary was marred with questionable decisions including the suspension of several PR lawmakers at the time.

He was also notorious for dismissing opposition motions including on issues deemed neutral, prompting PR lawmakers to accuse him of being “a Barisan Nasional (BN) spokesman”.

We  reminded Pandikar that he has the duty to perform his duty impartially in accordance to international standards.

It is a basic principle of democratic Commonwealth parliaments that the Speaker must act impartially in presiding over the House..

Meanwhile, the threat as unbecoming of an “interim” Speaker, reminding him that he is not yet appointed to the post and that his appointment is made by MPs.

He is not even the Speaker. He was the Speaker for the 12th sitting and it is not him who will swear us in but we will have him sworn in.

The Speaker is produced by the parliament. He has not even been sworn in and he’s already making this arrogant statement. It is very unbecoming,.

PR anchor party PKR had recently suggested that the opposition snub the swearing-in process in protest against alleged fraud in Election 2013.

The mainstream media, however, published reports claiming that the opposition coalition had decided to proceed with its plan to shun the sitting although Chua later clarified that no official decision has been taken as of now.

PKR’s allies DAP and PAS, however, have openly voiced their objection to the boycott idea and said that there was never any consensus to shun the swearing-in process.

Pandikar blasted the suggestion as an insult to parliamentary democracy and the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, saying this was the first time such an idea was being mooted since independence.






It is a national shame that Pandikar is taught about the Devan Rakyat Standing Orders by a new MP. Pandikar should be read and understand the Standing Orders and stop threatening the opposition MPs .

Pandikar has not yet been sworn in in Parliament, and yet, he speaks as if officially he already is the Speaker for the 13th Parliament! And he claims he has the right as of now to decide which MP to be disqualified! Such third world mentality and a laughing stock of Malaysians and the rest of the world!

Pandikar, are you sure you are going to be the Speaker when Parliament is in session after PRU13? If not, please keep quiet . and do not pose as agent for BN. By the way, aren't you supposed to be neutral on this matter?

Pandikar Amin belongs to the same family of sycophants as do some senior civil servants, judges, police officers and assorted toadies of the illegitimate regime. He's just blustering for his supper as well as for future contracts, appointments and the rich life for his kith and kin.

bootlicker stool of UMNO....Olympic Council says needs Padang Merbok on day of Pakatan rally


The Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) said today that Padang Merbok needs to be available for logistics preparation on June 22 as its June 23 run will pass through the area, despite flagging off from Dataran Merdeka.

OCM honorary secretary Datuk Sieh Kok Chi said that its McDonald’s Olympic Run, which has been held annually on June 23 since 1994 in celebration of Olympic Day, would involve 15,000 runners and that the venue was booked at the end of last year.

“We are actually starting to set up on June 21st after 3pm, and then on 22nd after 6pm,” Sieh told 

“We hope, out of the goodwill of everyone, let us organise the run. We’re doing the run for the benefit of people to stay healthy,” added the representative from the sports NGO.

PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli insisted earlier today that Padang Merbok would be available for Pakatan Rakyat’s Black505 rally as the OCM run was scheduled to take place at Dataran Merdeka.

The Pandan MP then expressed disappointment at KL mayor Datuk Ahmad Phesal Talib’s claim that Padang Merbok would not be available for PR’s June 22 rally against electoral fraud, saying it appeared as if the City Hall was bowing to political pressure from Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN).

Sieh, however, pointed out today that runners would pass through Padang Merbok on June 23 and that most would park their cars near the field.

“The run will affect the Padang Merbok area. That’s why DBKL is saying that it’s covering the Padang Merbok area,” he said, referring to the City Hall by its Malay acronym.

Sieh added that four runs – 3km, 5km, 7km and 10km – would start from Dataran Merdeka on June 23 at 7.30am and end at the same place by 11am.

At a press conference yesterday, Ahmad urged PR to select another venue for the rally, preferably a closed-door area like a stadium, saying the field would be needed for “logistic preparations” for OCM’s June 23 event.

The mayor also said holding the rally at the open, public venue would pose traffic concerns for motorists travelling along Jalan Parlimen, Jalan Kuching, Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, Jalan Raja Laut, Jalan Raja and Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

Rafizi, however, said today that PR leaders will meet Ahmad on June 14, but will not budge from the federal opposition pact’s decision to stage the rally at Padang Merbok on June 22.






Lame excuses to deprive the public from accessing public areas which belong to the public. The powers that be must be reminded constantly that this country does not belong to their grandfathers. They are taking us for a ride and seem to be enjoying it and getting away with it. Abuse of powers to the core.

Maybe PR should have the event on 23 Jun after the race.
Runner could join in adding to the crowd.
See what-else DBKL has to say...

playing dirty politics ...PKR urinated by DBKL...DBKL says won’t let PKR use Padang Merbok for rally


Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) today rejected Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s (PKR) application to hold a gathering at Padang Merbok this June 22, said Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib.

He said the concrete reason for the rejection was that Padang Merbok was too close to the city centre and exposed to the problem of traffic congestion as there were several entry/exit roads to the city centre in the vicinity.

“These roads include Jalan Kuching, Jalan Raja, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Jalan Parlimen, which is the protocol road and popular for cycling and other recreational activities.

“DBKL is very concerned about traffic control to ensure smooth flow and holding of a public gathering at Padang Merbok will surely cause acute traffic congestion,” he told a press conference at his office, here, adding that the rejection letter would be sent out soonest possible.

Ahmad Phesal said DBKL rejected the application also to ensure the landscape at Padang Merbok would not be adversely affected by such a gathering in order to ensure its good condition at all times.

He also noted that DBKL had received advance booking from the Olympic Council of Malaysia on December 18, last year to hold the Olympic Run 2013 on June 23 and the organiser needed to make preparations one day prior to the event.

“Therefore, Padang Merbok needs to be vacant (on June 22) for OCM to prepare for the run,” he said.

Ahmad Phesal said DBKL suggested that the organiser (PKR) of the gathering planned for June 22 to hold it at an enclosed venue like the Merdeka Stadium or Titiwangsa Stadium.

“We will call them for a discussion on June 14 where we will give our views and reasons, and which will also be attended by a representative from the Royal Malaysian Police.

“We will try to assist them in getting a suitable place for the gathering,” he said.






The reasons given are just pure rubbish, typical of BN. Rallies organised by BN are given the OK, even for Dataran!? why is that. Reason does not apply!

Remember the popular vote from Kuala Lumpur is for Pakatan but the lever of power has been hijacked by BN which appoints the mayor to carry out its nefarious agenda. The people of Kuala Lumpur has been disenfranchised in this matter. "Black 505" should also include the question of why BN still control City Hall despite being trounced in Kuala Lumpur in the GE13 election.

DBKL seems to display the same arrogant, confrontational and anti Opposition attitude. Once the rakyat gets fed up with their antic and illogical reasons even Dataran Merdeka will be occupied by frustrated Malaysians.

Just move on to Dataran Merdeka...if everything can not

what else jumped from the BN's ship want sunk ...Unhappy BN MPs meet over spoils of GE13 victory

Several disgruntled Barisan Nasional (BN) MPs from east Malaysia met veteran lawmaker Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah last night to discuss their positions after not getting anything for their wins in the closely-fought Election 2013.

It  understands that about the dozen or so MPs from Sabah and Sarawak are not keen to cross the aisle to join Pakatan Rakyat (PR) but are also not happy with Putrajaya over the spoils of victory.

The east Malaysian MPs met Ku Li in his house to discuss their next moves as they are not happy with Putrajaya.

The MPs, who were elected in the May 5 general election, are here for two days of familiarisation with ethics and parliamentary procedures.

BN took 47 of the 56 federal seats in Sabah and Sarawak, contributing one-third of the 133 federal seats it won in the elections despite both states only having a quarter of the 222 seats in Parliament.

However, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak only doled out 20 ministerial and deputy ministerial posts to east Malaysian MPs, leaving parties like Sarawak’s SPDP without any representatives despite winning four federal seats.

In contrast, the MIC in the Malay peninsula saw all four MPs getting ministerial and deputy ministerial posts in the Najib administration — which has 32 full ministers including eight in the Prime Minister’s Department.

The east Malaysians don’t want to leave BN but they also want something back for their wins.

They are seeing Ku Li to see what they can do to express their disappointment.

The Kelantan prince had wanted to challenge Najib for the Umno presidency in the last party polls but did not pick up enough nominations to qualify for the contest, whose eventual winner usually becomes the prime minister in a BN government.

He has represented Gua Musang since 1974 and has had his sights on the prime minister’s job several times but has had no success.

The east Malaysian MPs are the latest to rattle Najib after he won his first personal mandate with fewer seats than his predecessor Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Najib is already under pressure from within Umno and now this, just after a poor result in the polls..

Umno won 88 federal seats in Election 2013, up nine from 2008 but several party veterans have blamed the party and BN’s lacklustre performance on Najib’s “war room” strategists, and hinting that the prime minister might be shown the door if he doesn’t remove his strategists for their bad advice.

The MPs can’t do much except call for a motion of no-confidence. Getting it on the agenda is already a success to express their disappointment.

Or they can leave it to Umno members at the year-end party polls to show PM how they feel..

The BN MPs who met Tengku Razaleigh are not expected to reveal their intentions until Parliament starts on June 24.

Either way, this is just more pressure on Najib to appease all sides in BN..






PM pioneered the slogan 'Janji Ditepati' during the GE13 campaign. He told the voters about this, but he did not tell the BN candidates especially those from Sabah and Sarawak. Because he expected them to be easily satisfied just for being elected. lol

With Mahathir still not ready to dislodge himself from mainstream Malaysian politics, Ku Li and his group should just abandon the BN and form a national unity government with Pakatan Rakyat...after all the latter secured the popular votes.

Here is the deal. Tengku Li becomes interim PM with three deputies: Anwar, Lim Kit Siang and one from either Sabah or Sarawak.

Ku Li is PM for most the 5-year term and then hands over to Anwar to spearhead the push for a more convincing win during GE 14.

This can be a win-win formula rather than Malaysia being led by a lame duck PM unable to shackle a racist UMNO fanned on by Utusan Malaysia.

EC chairman erectile dysfunction...Pakatan files petitions to challenge results in 24 federal seats

The EC said it carried out the task properly ...properly like this ...???

Pakatan Rakyat (PR) will start filing election petitions to challenge the results in 24 federal seats beginning today in an attempt to overturn what it claimed was a rigged Election 2013 outcome.

PKR strategic director Rafizi Ramli said the process of the filing will go on until Wednesday while the federal opposition bloc will also launch three civil suits against the Election Commission (EC) for its failure to conduct the May 5 polls fairly within three weeks.

PR will also begin filing election petitions for 10 state seats nationwide with PKR leading the charge with nine seats while PAS will take one.

Each of the petitions will be filed in courts in their respective states.

“I can confirm that beginning today all three PR parties will begin filing election petitions,” Rafizi told a press conference at the PKR headquarters here.

The seats that will be challenged by PKR are Merbok, Kulim Bandar Baru, Ketereh, Machang, Balik Pulau, Tapah, Bagan Datok, Sabak Bernam, Setiawangsa, Segamat, Ledang, Muar, Tebrau, Pasir Gudang, Kota Marudu, Beaufort, Pensiangan and Baram.

For Bagan Datok, the seat helmed by Umno vice-president and Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Rafizi said two petitions will be filed. One is the standard election petition while the second will be in relation to an alleged offence committed by the candidate.

Ahmad Zahid was said to have violated the law when he allegedly spent more than the RM200,000 cap imposed on each candidate’s campaign expenses when he purportedly admitted to have given 25,000 voters RM100 and 5kg of rice each.

“He was actually caught on video admitting this and you can see the video which is widely circulated on the Internet,” Rafizi said.

On the civil suit against the EC, the Pandan MP revealed that PR aims to convict the commission for the indelible ink fiasco; to demand a court review of the tainted integrity of the Sabah electoral roll based on the testimonies of the ongoing royal commission of inquiry on the state’s illegal immigrant problems and; civil action to declare the amendment to section 9A of the Election Act that disallows the veracity of the electoral roll in court as unconstitutional.

PR leaders claimed that the Election 2013 results were rigged to favour the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition.

Next to its plans to drag the EC to court in what is likely to be the biggest civil action mounted against the polls regulator in Malaysian history, the bloc had also launched the “Black 505” movement and held several massive rallies nationwide to step up pressure for polls reform.

Immediately after the May 5 polls, PKR’s #siasatPRU13 team made a series of exposes on what it claimed was proof of polls fraud as the opposition moved to pressure Putrajaya to implement polls reform, starting with the complete overhaul of the EC.

The EC has denied the allegation.

Rafizi also said PR will continue with its protests until all the conditions for polls reform are met despite growing calls for the opposition bloc to “move forward” and fight through other channels.







All 222 seatsshould have re-elections because indelible ink was clearly not indelible and the entire result of the election should be null and void.

'Rafizi' is what is lacking under the corrupt regime. He is great asset to the country - a very hardworking and intelligent young man with integrity. He is moderate and professional in his work.

I wish him well and hope that he is allowed to discharge his duties without fear or favour for the sake of our country and that this country produces more 'Rafizi' [and Nurul, Tony Pua, Ong Kean Meng for that matter] to take our country to greater heights.

Good luck to PR and pray that our judiciary does not let us down.

do not be afraid of this threat drunk dogs....continue 'blackout 505" rally on plan

No DBKL nod for Pakatan’s Padang Merbok rally, Ku Nan confirms

The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will not permit Pakatan Rakyat (PR) to use Padang Merbok for its mass rally this June 15, Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said today.

The Barisan Nasional (BN) secretary-general denied, however, that this was intended to stop the federal opposition pact from hosting the event, saying instead that the venue was not suitable as it was an open space.

He advised PR to move its plans to indoor venues such as stadiums or other appropriate locations.

“We allow them to hold their gathering in closed areas. I was informed by the (KL) Mayor that they applied to use Padang Merbok.

“But to me, Padang Merbok is an open space... in open spaces, we will not give (our permission) because we know the law and abide by it,” he said when approached after a function at KL Sentral here.

The Putrajaya MP later criticised the attitudes of opposition leaders whom he alleged were encouraging unlawful behaviour among Malaysians by their actions.

“I would like to advise that we live in a place with law and order. The opposition is trying to create this environment to the people where it is like we live in the jungle... we do not follow the laws of the jungle,” he said.

Tengku Adnan also urged the opposition to call off its protests and accept the fact that they lost the 13th general election, adding that they should focus on their responsibilities to the constituents who voted for them.

“If you were defeated, just accept the reality,” he said.

PR chose Padang Merbok as its June 15 rally venue after the authorities advised them against using the iconic Dataran Merdeka as the venue.

PKR strategy director and Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli said last week that notices for the planned rally ― scheduled for 2pm next Saturday ― were submitted to the police and Kuala Lumpur City Hall, adding that he expects no arrests to be made since the protest will be done in accordance with the Peaceful Assembly Act (PPA).

“The decision to hold the ‘Black 505’ rally at Padang Merbok took into considerations the Royal Malaysia Police’s advice against using Dataran Merdeka, although we feel that Dataran Merdeka is the most suitable for the rakyat to gather and voice their aspiration contained in the ‘Black 505’ demands,” he told reporters at PKR’s headquarters here.

“Black 505” was created as a movement of protest against allegations of widespread irregularities in the May 5 general election that saw the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) retain power despite losing the popular vote.

Earlier today, the Bar Council appeared to suggest that the police have been exploiting the ten-day prior notice clause in the Peaceful Assembly Act (PPA) to block the opposition from holding its street rallies.

Its president, Christopher Leong, criticised the authorities for charging PR leaders for allegedly violating the PPA by failing to issue the notice before holding several “Black 505” protests nationwide, arguing that it was unnecessary for them to do so.

“There is no reason for the rally organisers to be charged. For me, the provision for ten-day notice is ridiculous,” Leong told reporters after attending a forum on the redrawing of constituency lines here, adding that he noticed a “trend” by the authorities to use the law as the reason to prosecute the leaders.

The Bar Council president noted that the prior notice requirement under the PPA was merely drawn to give the authorities time to arrange, facilitate and ensure a rally is held peacefully.

“Under the PPA, there is no approval needed... the ten-day requirement is not a good provision,” he said.

Leong’s criticism comes as Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar suggested that the opposition had failed to meet the criteria of the provision when it notified the police about its plan to hold a mass rally at Padang Merbok.

According to Sinar Harian today, Khalid said the notice was incomplete following PR’s failure to obtain approval to hold a protest against the alleged fraudulent practices in Election 2013 from the city council DBKL.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had said that PR could proceed with the planned June 15 rally, dubbed “Black 505”, if it is conducted within the provisions of the PPA.

Immediately after the May 5 polls, PKR’s #siasatPRU13 team made a series of exposés on what it claimed was proof of polls fraud as the opposition moved to pressure Putrajaya to implement polls reform, starting with the complete overhaul of the Elections Commission (EC).

PR and other civil society groups have since held mammoth rallies since May 5 to push their agenda for reform, outlining three main conditions with the first being the resignation of all EC members for its failure to ensure a free and fair Election 2013.

The “Black 505” rallies as they are called, were also created as a movement of protest against PR’s claims of irregularities during the polls, which saw the ruling BN retain power despite losing the popular vote.






If all previous "Black 505" mammoth rallies are taken as a gauge, where there were no untoward incidents and public disturbances nor being a threat to public safety and order, there should be NO REASON to reject the use of Merbok Padang for the June 15 rally. Only those who are envious and fearful of the truth being told would reject the application. DBKL must not act according to the beck and call of UMNO. After all, Isn't it UMNO that heads the Federal Ministry?

For goodness sake BN, just let fellow Malaysians mix and enjoy themselves during the rally. It is so different from the daily dosage of racists remarks we read everyday. No politician will every break the spirits of Malaysians wanting to rally peacefully and wanting to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Even the hawkers and small businesses want business, why are you impeding them?

We will rally on June 15th!

1 malaysia...all kinds of people dead in the lockup...PDRM record history again...This time the Japanese died in lockup

A Japanese man who was arrested for brandishing a knife at auxiliary police after trespassing into a university near here on June 2, was found hanged at the grille of his lock up cell at the USJ 8 police station, Subang Jaya, early this morning.

Selangor deputy police chief Datuk A. Thaiveegan said Nobuhiro Matsushita, 33, was found dead at 4am and was believed to have hanged himself on the grille bar by using his own shirt.

“An autopsy report issued by the University Malaya Medical Centre found that the suspect died as a result of hanging and that there were no injuries on his body.

“Initial police investigations also confirmed that no foul play resulted in his death,” he told a press conference here today.

He said an inspection by a lock-up policeman an hour before had found that all detainees, including the man, were in good condition.

Thaiveegan said the suspect, who was arrested on June 2 after making criminal threats to the auxiliary police personnel who wanted to arrest him for intruding into a store at the university, initially was placed in a cell with other detainees before been segregated for intrusiveness on the other detainees.

“The man was arrested and remanded for criminal intimidation and for criminal invasion until June 17.

“An inspection on his passport also found that were no records on his entry into the country and his detention also related to immigration matters,” he said.

Thaiveegan said police had several times called in a translator from the Japanese embassy for the purposes of the investigation because the suspect did not speak English.

He said police had contacted his family to inform the incident through the embassies and were informed that it would take some time for them to come over.

“We are awaiting for a full report from the pathologist and when’ve received, we will submit the investigation file or the sudden death report to the Attorney-General’s Chamber for further instructions... so we are following everything according to procedure,” he added.






When it is suicide the police seem to 'follow procedure' very meticulously. It is only when they have done the killing that they hem and haw and get the home minister to say he's soooo worried about the morale of the poor lads in the police force. Credibility? Zero lah.

It makes no sense to me how the PDRM can continue to investigate its own wrongdoings - custodial deaths being the case in point. No normal thinking person can support the argument for self-investigation especially where the outcome may lead to requirements for "self-punishment.". Objective thinking requires an independent body to investigate wrongful actions by PDRM personnel - no two ways about it.

How much more deaths must BN have for them to establish something that should have been done decades ago?

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.
