    SPR: Selangor already fallen to BN

    Selangor already fallen to BN!

    Will recent events concerning the re-drawn boundaries in Selangor indicate that the coming polls is going to be a sham of an election?
    COMMENT

    Recent reports received from this columnist’s friends in PAS have revealed the inevitable – Selangor has already fallen into the hands of BN.


    Why is this so? Well, besides the dirty voter rolls, recently even the parliamentary and state constituencies in Selangor have had their boundaries re-drawn, said this columnist’s friends in the Selangor PAS committee tasked with overseeing the preparations for the 13th general election.


    Now what is to be done? Of course police reports have been made besides forwarding evidence to the Election Commission (EC) who must remain professional, ethical and honest at all times in carrying out their duties in order to serve the interests of the public by working for the good of the citizens.


    But will recent events concerning the re-drawn boundaries indicate that the coming polls is going to be a sham of an election?


    Those who say that Malaysia has a vibrant democracy are merely being economic on the truth. The only thing vibrant is the compliant media’s unjust bashing of the opposition Pakatan Rakyat (PR) and the rampant crime and corruption going on.


    And it bears repeating that the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat state government must only dissolve the State Legislative Assembly in May. Anything before that is disastrous for Pakatan.


    Looking at the way that BN wants to cling on to power, then is a foretaste of events to come should they lose the 13th general election.


    BN leaders have said that Pakatan will cause chaos if it loses. But what if it is BN who loses? What is their answer to that question? Have we heard them giving assurances to the rakyat by saying, “We will abide by the rakyat’s decision?”


    Be that as it may, the election must and will go on. The losers must accept the verdict. The opposition have lost 12 consecutive times so for them losing is nothing new but what about those who have never tasted defeat?


    For the good of the nation and the well-being of the rakyat, the losers of the forthcoming polls should work with the winners to build up the nation.


    The losers must be magmanimous enough to accept defeat. If they resort to hooliganism and sabotage, then their true colours and greed for power will be revealed and show that their past slogans are empty rhetoric to hoodwink the people.


    The time has come for Malaysians to move forward towards building a great nation for one and all. Otherwise we will be left far behind – stuck in the age of antiquities. It is high time we march forward to the dawn of a new civilisation of hope, peace and progress.


    inning at all cost


    The case of Selangor highlights the dirty tactics of certain parties who want to win at all cost.


    “There is just nothing we can do about their dirty tricks as all avenues are closed. We have raised the issue of dubious voters and instant MyKad in Parliament and in our party paper, Harakah. We have brought up the matter with the Election Commission and made the necessary police reports – all to no avail,” said PAS Kuala Selangor MP, Dzulkefly Ahmad to this columnist.


    His PAS colleague and Kuala Krai MP, Hatta Ramli who will be overseeing the PAS election groundwork has informed this columnist that he has requested that the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) set up to look into the problem of illegals in Sabah being given MyKad be given an extension of its workscope to include Selangor as well but the Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Liew Vui Keong (Sandakan MP) said that the problem does not exist in Selangor! And this reply was given in the recently concluded Parliament session.


    Hatta also mentioned that these days the EC has discontinued the practice of furnishing figures pertaining to the number of voters registered by each political party and this is a very unhealthy move because it is a lack of transparency.

    Certainly no help will be forthcoming as the current government itself is denying the very existence of this problem in Selangor.


    “Definitely the few hundred thousand dubious names in the Selangor voter rolls is a worrying factor but as I have said earlier, we have exhausted all avenues. The problem has been brought up in the Parliamentary Select Committee for Electoral Reform and each time we from the Pakatan side raise this issue, the EC will say ‘Show us the evidence’ and each time after we have shown them the evidence, they will say ‘We will look into it’ and then the matter will just end there,” added Dzulkefly.


    All this simply means that Selangor is already in BN’s grasp. It is only a matter of an official announcement by the EC.


    The way the incumbent government runs the whole show via its iron grip on all the national institutions certainly cannot be justified.


    “The country is run in such a manner as if it is BN’s own family concern,” remarked Dzulkefly.


    This time we have a viable opposition coalition capable of good governance and therefore this is the best time for Malaysian voters to decide wisely. The BN leaders always harp on the fact that the opposition has no experience in governing a country and thus should not be given a chance to do so but this is indeed an extremely stupid line of reasoning.


    Of course the opposition has no experience in governing the country simply because the opposition has never occupied the federal seat of power.

    Game of ‘Sabotage 24/7′ in Selangor


    Selena Tay

    January 30, 2013


    The ruling Barisan Nasional has increased dubious voters by the thousands in 13 parliamentary seats in Selangor.

    COMMENT
    In a slick and covert mission, some smooth operators have managed to shoot up the numbers of the Selangor electoral roll by adding as many dubious voters as possible in order to subvert the vote of genuine Selangorians.

    Appended below is the information on the increase of dubious voters in these Pakatan Rakyat-held parliamentary seats. The information is obtained from PAS’ Harakah daily dated Jan 25 to 27, 2013:

    1. Kuala Selangor 10,083 (PAS MP Dzulkefly Ahmad)
    2. Selayang 16,189 (PKR MP William Leong)
    3. Gombak 15,467 (PKR MP Azmin Ali)
    4. Hulu Langat 23,334 (PAS MP Che Rosli Che Mat)
    5. Serdang 23,748 (DAP MP Teo Nie Ching)
    6. Puchong 19,772 (DAP MP Gobind Singh Deo)
    7. Kelana Jaya 13,714 (PKR MP Loh Gwo Burne)
    8. Subang 27,765 (PKR MP R Sivarasa)
    9. Shah Alam 15,417 (PAS MP Khalid Samad)
    10.Kapar 21,606 (PKR MP S Manikavasagam)
    11.Klang 11,702 (DAP MP Charles Santiago)
    12.Kota Raja 22,256 (PAS MP Siti Mariah Mahmud)
    13.Kuala Langat 17,172 (PKR MP Abdullah Sani)

    This underhand operation to negate the vote of genuine Malaysian citizens reveals the desperation of those who want to win at all costs so much so that they are willing to sell out the nation’s rights.

    In the process, they do not give two hoots about altering the nation’s demographics or jeopardising the lives and livelihood of ordinary citizens.

    The situation will be difficult for us citizens if we do not do something about these dubious voters (most of whom are foreigners with MyKad) and if we do not take pro-active action on polling day.

    Pakatan leaders have already made countless police reports and filed countless complaints with the Election Commission (EC) but to no avail. The relevant authorities are just not concerned and have turned a blind eye to these reports and complaints.

    Other problems as well

    Besides the electoral roll problem, the water problem in Selangor is also an attempt to strike at Pakatan by victimising Selangorians.

    “If the water pumps are spoilt, then just get them repaired. What has it got to do with the building of the Langat 2 dam? BN is talking nonsense by linking the water pumps problem with the dam,” said PAS Pokok Sena MP, Mahfuz Omar.

    Even the collection of rubbish in Selangor has been sabotaged. It is the game of “Sabotage 24/7” to halt the smooth running of the Pakatan Selangor government’s administration.

    Therefore from the Selangor situation we can see BN’s game in attacking Pakatan and the citizens as a whole.

    This means that all genuine Malaysians (regardless of whether we are voting or not) must be ready to serve the nation on polling day. It only takes one day to change the course of history.

    And Pakatan needs all men and women of goodwill to monitor all the roads leading to the polling centres on polling day from the break of dawn to dusk. The rakyat should also gather outside the vote-counting centres to deter any extra ballot boxes from being brought in or other types of hanky-panky.

    Chaos and hooliganism can also be prevented due to the strength of the rakyat.
    This is the only chance for all ordinary citizens. Otherwise, BN will win again as it is in control of the EC and the National Registration Department (NRD).
    There needs to be a massive force ushering in this change in history. The role of civil society is most needed to negate the efforts and effects of the phantom voters.
    Therefore, civil society must act. There has to be a stop to all this victimisation of the rakyat, plundering of the nation’s coffers and robbing of the citizens’ rights via the giving of instant citizenships to unskilled or low-skilled foreign labour or aliens who had landed on our shores via the porous borders.
    Gerrymandering game
    It is already an uphill battle as the extremely dirty electoral roll coupled with gerrymandering of parliamentary and state boundaries work in favour of the ruling government.

    The omission or transferring out of genuine Malaysian voters’ names without the voters’ knowledge or consent is another dirty tactic done with a lame excuse.

    In addition, the EC has more than doubled its workers from 100,000 to 240,000 and these are the people who will be voting earlier.

    The “pondok panas” to monitor voters have seen an increase in its distance from 50 metres to 100 metres from the polling centre and in the polling centre itself, the party representative has to face the voter’s back – all these are measures put in place by the BN federal government to make it difficult for Pakatan’s people to identify the “foreign” voters.

    The rogues are therefore doing anything and everything, manipulating to the hilt to stay in power.
