Strive to preserve, enhance people solidarity

When I looked at a sea of people from the platform as I spoke to the 10,000-strong PKR public rally in Sentul last Thursday evening, I saw Malay, Chinese and Indian faces all expressing the hope for changes for a better society for all. Now that the dream of rakyat jelata have come true, it is the responsibility of all of us to preserve and enhance inter-ethnic solidarity and to be prepared to confront and defeat any reactionary attempts to derail, halt or reverse the historic progress.

Mr. James I sincerely hope either PKR or DAP will nominate you to the senate seat. You have fire in your belly, you are ready to fight with energy and determination for what you believe is right without fear or favor for this nation.

Now that the opposition parties have won control of 5 state government and deny BN two third majority in the parliament, do the next stage by petition for a Royal Commission on Electoral Reform (RCER) in Malaysia.

If you want to have a better future for our children in Malaysia, do you bit by signing the on-line petition at http://bersih.org.

Why do we need to reform the Election Commission?

1) the discrepancy between number of voters in urban and rural seats is too great. The smallest parliamentary seat (Federal Territory, Putrajaya) has only 6,608 voters while the parliamentary seat for Kapar in Selangor has 112,224 voters. What this means is that one vote in the Putrajaya parliamentary constituency is equivalent to 17 votes in the Kapar constituency.

2) A common tactic is to ‘buy’ the identity card of the voters. Party members will then vote on the voters’ behalf. Random checking of a person’s identity must be conducted using those finger print checking device. Any voting done on another person’s identity must be made a serious offence under the election law.

3) The rules on postal voting must be reviewed, tightened and amended. The current rule favours the ruling party as the armed forces personnel and policemen who vote by ‘postal voting’ would obviously not jeopardize their career or promotion prospect by voting for the opposition.

There is going to be some very delicate dancing required in Perak over the choice of MB, and how the coalition governs with a razor-thin majority in the state legislature.

I wish them luck, but its going to be politically very tough for DAP/PKR/PAS.

On another note, looking up various government reports and tallying up the economic contributions from Selangor, Penang, Perak, Kedah and Kelantan, especially the first 2 states Selangor and Penang, the opposition controlled states account for more than 50% of Malaysia's GDP.
No wonder the bloodbath on the Bursa Malaysia yesterday...
