‘Yellow wave’ in Parliament by Pakatan reps

Pakatan Rakyat MPs turned up in Parliament decked out in various articles in the distinctive yellow of Bersih to protest the police clampdown on the electoral reform rally.

Most of the men sported ties in the ‘official’ Bersih 2.0 colour or others in shades of yellow, while the women were attired in yellow.

The rest wore various articles of clothing in the same colour, while those more daring like Bukit Gantang parliamentarian Nizar Jamaluddin and Bakri MP Er Teck Hwa donned the official Bersih 2.0 T-shirt, which has caused the arrest of many since the crackdown began, in open defiance.

At a press conference in the parliament lobby today, the MPs stood in solidarity with Bersih and the rakyat’s wishes for free and fair elections, condemning the unilateral and as some argued, illegal and unconstitutional crackdown on the hugely popular rally. Read the rest of this entry

It is the latest attempt by authorities to deter citizens from marching in Kuala Lumpur on 9 July in what the opposition hopes will be Malaysia’s biggest protest in nearly four years.

The activists are demanding that authorities overhaul voter lists, introduce transparent procedures for ballots to be counted and make other policy changes ahead of national elections widely expected by mid-2012. Government officials say current electoral laws are fair enough. Read the rest of this entry

DBKL PROMISES TO LOOK INTO BUKIT OUG HILLSIDE PROJECT

The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has promised to review the Bukit OUG hillside housing project which will raise the local plot ratio from 60 people per acre to an astounding 500 people per acre.

According to Bukit OUG Condominium (BOC) residents, DBKL deputy director director-general Zulkifli Ibrahim has pledged to meet the developer, Exsim Development Sdn Bhd, to discuss a possible density reduction.

The meeting between DBKL, BOC residents and Exsim was to look into the developer’s proposal for building four blocks of 31 to 33-storey condominiums on a hillside opposite of BOC, named Treez Condominium.

Malaysian activists detained over banned rally

27 June 2011

More than 30 Malaysian activists remain in detention, after being arrested at the weekend weeks before a planned mass rally calling for electoral reforms.

Campaign groups and opposition parties are organising a march on 9 July against the current system, which they say is plagued with fraud.

Police say the rally to be held in Kuala Lumpur is illegal and have warned the public against attending.

Prime Minister Najib Razak is expected to call a general election this year.

Mr Razak called on the opposition to fight him at the polls rather than on the street, brushing off allegations of electoral fraud.

“Do not create chaos just because you want power. If there is chaos, then [the organisers] will be held responsible,” he said in an interview with the Star newspaper published on Sunday. Read the rest of this entry

Apa ada dengan UMNO, BN?

26 JUN – Apabila PAS laksanakan usaha negara berkebajikan, UMNO kata ia sudah lama amal konsep itu.

Apabila PKR laksanakan usaha reformasi, UMNO kata ia sudah ada transformasi.

Apabila DAP laksanakan amalan cekap, akauntabel dan telus (CAT), UMNO tak kata apa-apa kecuali menyumpah seranah DAP.

Apabila Pakatan Rakyat lahirkan Buku Jingga, UMNO keluarkan video seks.

UMNO dan Barisan Nasional berkuasa sejak zaman Perikatan, sejak sebelum Merdeka apabila dipupuk oleh penjajah British untuk dilatih mentadbir negara pada 1955.

Sejak Merdeka hingga sekarang, daripada politik kaum kepada perkauman yang didominasi UMNO, pemerintahan BN semakin menutup ruang kebebasan, demokrasi dan peluang-peluang yang adil. Read the rest of this entry

郭素沁:選舉須公平公正‧由人民決定誰當政府

(吉隆坡26日訊)民主行動黨士布爹國會議員郭素沁呼吁全國人民爭取本身權益,通過乾淨與公平選舉聯盟(BERSIH)2.0民主之行,向政府表達國家需要公平公正的選舉。

“無論朝野政黨,應該由人民做選擇和決定由誰人來當政府,而非通過不法手段來奪得政權。如果沒有公平干凈的選舉制度,再好的政府也得不到人民的信任。”

她指出,凈選盟的宗旨是要求自由和公平的選舉,這是人民應該要爭取的,也是大家希望看到的屬於人民的選舉。

她說,民聯三黨肯定會支持凈選盟大集會,但部份有心人士卻譴責凈選盟試圖製造恐怖氣氛。

她舉例說,馬華總會長蔡細歷曾批評民聯倡議兩線制逐漸走向“兩大種族制”,但是在709大集會上,他將看到三大種族一同走上街頭,有著共同目標,向政府傳達要求一個公平自由的選舉。 Read the rest of this entry
