Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak Can Only Prove That UMNO Is Not A Racist Party When UMNO Wipes Out Corruption, Opens Its Membership To All Races, Adopts the 1 Malaysia Slogan And Stop the Campaign Of Hatred And Fear Against Non-Malays.(en/bm/cn)

Posted: 12 May 2013 01:38 AM PDT

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP for Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 12.5.2013.

UMNO President Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak can only prove that UMNO is not a racist party when UMNO wipes out corruption, opens its membership to all races, adopts the 1 Malaysia slogan and stop the campaign of hatred and fear against non-Malays. Datuk Seri Najib has blamed BN's failure to win more seats and a 2/3 majority in the 2013 General Elections on DAP's racist policies.

Can Najib show proof what are the DAP policies that are racist? I doubt that Najib can show any proof when DAP upholds the Federal Constitution on the queston of:-
• Islam as the religion of the Federation whilst other religions have freedom to practice their faith,
• Bahasa Malaysia as the official language whilst other mother-tongue languages can be used and promoted, and
• safeguarding the special position of Malays and bumis whilst protecting the legitimate interests of other races in Malaysia under Article 153 of the Federal Constitution.

Najib's attack on DAP as racist is to hide BN's failure to wipe out corruption, cronyism and abuse of power as the primary causes as well as to mask the fact that UMNO is now the most racist party in the world. Even the African National Party that advocated apartheid against the majority blacks in South Africa has been disbanded. And yet UMNO continues to proudly articulate racial dominance and that racial dominance justifies UMNO and its non-Malay allies in BN to be corrupt and reject open competitive tenders.

Unlike UMNO, DAP is open to all Malaysians regardless of race, religion and gender. DAP is proud to have not only Malays, Indians and Chinese wakil rakyats but also a Kadazan wakil rakyat from Sabah. Can UMNO boast such a multi-racial representation like the DAP?

Unlike UMNO, DAP fights against corruption and for the rights of all Malaysians. Unlike UMNO, DAP campaigns on ideas, ideals, principles and people-centric policies. How can UMNO be moderate when it preaches fear, hatred and lies? Malaysians are not stupid to believe that UMNO is moderate and clean when its 56 year record in government is full of corruption and abuse of power.

Now, UMNO has no more moderate leaders when its Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz made the astonishing lie that the Chinese voters were misled that the special privileges enjoyed by the Malays and bumiputera as well as Islam as the official religion would be abolished if PR won. Neither DAP, PAS nor PKR had advocated abolishing the special position of Malays or Islam. No mention of this is made in the PR General Election manifesto.

This dangerous lie by Mohamed Nazri to provoke racial tensions, by an UMNO leader seen as different because he was anti-Perkasa, shows that there are now no more moderate UMNO leaders. If Nazri can not show proof, he should withdraw his wild allegations. BN and the police must be held responsible to ensure that there are no untoward incidents by some irresponsible elements to take advantage of the 44th May 13th anniversary tomorrow.

BN Forced To Accept That PR Won In Selangor, Penang and Kelantan When PR Won The Popular Vote.
Najib still refuses to answer why PR won 51% of the popular vote and yet it is BN that won Federal government power. Instead Najib chose to attack PR's refusal to fully accept the national parliamentary results of the 13th general election (GE13) as the greatest hypocrisy because PR had accepted the results in states of Selangor, Kelantan and Penang won by PR.

Najib misses the point that in all these 3 states, PR won not only the majority of the seats but a majority of the popular vote. PR fought a clean campaign and there were no complaints of cheating against PR. In Kelantan PR won 54%, in Selangor 59% and in Penang 68% of the popular vote. That is the reason why BN was forced to accept that PR won in those 3 states. In contrast, BN won only 47% of the popular vote and yet won 60% of the Parliamentary seats.

Najib must stop blaming the Chinese or the DAP for BN's failure to win a majority of the popular vote. Instead he must recognise the new paradigm shift of this general elections – that the people are sick and tired of race-based and extremist politics. Instead all Malaysians especially the urban areas have shown a clear preference for people-centric policies that makes a difference to the lives of ordinary Malaysians, decided on needs based and merit.

BN must acknowledge that the power of the people is more powerful than those people in power!

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2013年5月12日在吉隆坡发表声明:

拿督斯里纳吉如果要证明巫统不是种族主义政党,他就必须肃贪、开放巫统会员给各族人民、实践1个马来西亚口号、并且阻止任何对非马来人仇恨及恐惧的活动。

拿督斯里纳吉如果要证明巫统不是种族主义政党,他就必须肃贪、开放巫统会员给各族人民、实践一个马来西亚口号、并且阻止任何对非马来人仇恨及恐惧的活动。由于国阵在2013年大选中,无法赢得更多议席、以及失去国会三分之二多数议席,纳吉对此将责任归咎于民主行动党的种族性政策。

纳吉能不能拿出证据?行动党哪一项政策是种族性政策?我怀疑纳吉有什么证据,因为行动党捍卫联邦宪法的下列事项:

• 伊斯兰教为联邦宗教,同时其它宗教拥有奉行宗教信仰的自由;
• 马来西亚语为官方语言,同时能够使用及推广其它母语;
• 捍卫马来人及土著的特别地位,同时依据联邦宪法第153条文,保护马来西亚其它种族的合法利益。

纳吉指责行动党是种族主义,是为了隐藏国阵无法扫除贪污、朋党及滥权这些导致他们败北的根本原因,他也想掩饰巫统已经变成世界上最种族主义政党的事实。就连曾经倡议南非种族隔离政策、对付大多数黑人的非洲国民党也已经解散了。而巫统却还继续引以为荣、言之凿凿地说出种族主权,而他们口口声声的种族主权却沦为他们及国阵非马来人成员党贪污腐败、拒绝公开招标的理由。

行动党与巫统不同,行动党对全体马来西亚人开放党藉,不论什么种族、宗教及性别。我们感到光荣,因为我们的代议士不只有马来人、印度人及华人,我们也有沙巴州的卡达山人,巫统能不能吹牛说他们也有多元种族代表?

行动党与巫统不同,行动党反贪、也捍卫全体马来西亚人的权益。行动党与巫统不同,我们为理想、理念、原则及民本政策斗争。巫统怎么能够算中庸?他们只是鼓吹恐惧、仇恨及谎言。马来西亚人不愚笨,他们再也不会相信巫统是中庸及廉洁的,过去56年来,他们的贪污、滥权记录一匹布那么长。

现在巫统已经没有中庸的领袖了,巫统最高理事会成员拿督斯里纳兹里发表惊人的谎言,他说华裔选民被误导,他们以为如果民联胜出,马来人及土著、伊斯兰教为官方宗教的特权都会被废除。无论是行动党、伊斯兰党或公正党,民联从来没有提过废除马来人或伊斯兰教特别地位。我们在民联大选联合政纲中也没有提过上述事项。

莫哈末纳兹里用谎言来引发种族紧张是非常危险的,尤其他看起来是一名反土著权威组织的巫统领袖,如果连他也这么说,证明巫统已经没有中庸领袖。如果纳兹里拿不出证据,他应该撤回他的胡言乱语。国阵和警方也必须确保,那些不负责任的人士,不会在明天五一三44周年纪念日,乘机作乱。

民联赢得多数票的情况下,国阵被迫接受民联在雪州、槟州及吉兰丹取胜执政。

纳吉还是不愿意回答我们的问题,为什么民联获得51%的得票率,却是国阵赢得联邦政府的政权?纳吉不但避而不谈,反而攻击民联不愿意接受第13届大选国会议席的成绩,实在虚伪,因为民联已经接受我们在雪州、吉兰丹及槟城胜出的成绩。

纳吉忽略了一点,在这三个州,民联不只赢得多数议席,民联也赢得多数票。民联的竞选运动是干净的,没有人投诉民联使用欺诈的手段。民联在吉兰丹得票率为54%、雪兰莪州得票率为59%及槟城得票率为68%。这也是为何国阵必须接受民联在这三个州属胜出执政的事实。相反地,国阵只赢得47%得票率,却获得60%的国会议席。

纳吉必须停止针对国阵无法获得多数票怪罪华人或行动党的做法。反之,他必须承认这个选举已经让全民转向新范例,人民已经厌倦种族及极端政治。反之,所有的马来西亚人特别是城区人民已经表达他们倾向以民为本政策,这种绩效及需求为基础的政策才能改变普通马来西亚人的生活。

国阵必须承认,人民的力量比掌控权力的人士更加强而有力!

Kelahiran anak sulong PAS di Melaka

Posted: 12 May 2013 03:34 AM PDT

KETIKA berceloteh mengenai suasana hari penamaan calon di Melaka 20 April lalu, saya menyatakan ada 'kemajuan menarik' antara PAS dan DAP tatkala melihat buat pertama kalinya penyokong kedua-dua parti saling bercampur dengan bendera mereka (bulan dan roket) berkibaran berselang seli.

Situasi itu tidak saya lihat pada PRU 2008 dan sebelumnya. 'Percampuran' itu terbukti membantu PAS dalam melahirkan anak sulungnya di bumi Hang Tuah (PAS melalui calonnya Dr Mohd Khalid Kassim menang di Bukit Baru, N17 dengan majoriti 48 undi) manakala DAP meraih manfaatnya apabila akhirnya berjaya mengakhiri legasi BN (MCA) di kawasan seperti Duyong (N23).

Di Duyong, Pengerusi MCA Melaka yang juga penyandang kerusi itu, Dato' Gan Tian Loo ditewaskan oleh Pengerusi DAP negeri, Goh Leong San dengan majoriti 205 undi. 

Tentunya kejayaan itu dibantu KeADILAN, dan ia menjadi lebih manis lagi apabila ikatan padu ketiga-tiga parti Pakatan Rakyat itu melenyapkan ego Ketua Menteri, Dato' Seri Mohd Ali Rustam yang kecundang di kawasan Parlimen Bukit Katil (P137) dengan majoriti agak besar (5,447 undi) di tangan Pengerusi KeADILan Melaka, Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin.

Kekalahan Mohd Ali yang pernah mengadakan majlis kahwin anaknya yang dihadiri lebih 100,000 tetamu, diselubungi 'misteri' seperti terpadamnya lampu ketika pengiraan undi. Beliau menyalahkan rakyat terutama orang Cina yang dakwanya tidak pandai 'mengenang budi'. 

Berdasarkan senario di Dun dalam Parlimen Bukit Katil (Bukit Baru, Bachang, Ayer Keroh dan Ayer Molek) dan Parlimen Bukit Katil sendiri, ada iktibar menarik yang boleh dijadikan panduan.

Hanya kawasan inilah yang mencatatkan perubahan di Melaka; kawasan lain (luar bandar) tetap didominasi oleh BN manakala di bandar (terutama Kota Melaka) dimonopoli DAP. 

Di Dun Bukit Baru, pengundi Melayunya ada kira-kira 55 peratus, Cina lebih kurang 40 peratus manakala India kira-kira 5 peratus.

Dipercayai pengundi Melayu berpecah dua; dan apabila situasi ini berlaku, dengan undian pengundi Cina terutama daripada DAP menyebelahi calon PAS, maka tercatatlah sejarah Dr Khalid yang pernah menjadi Timbalan Pengarah Hospital Melaka, 'melahirkan anak sulung' PAS di negeri Hang Tuah. 

Bagi Parlimen Bukit Katil (pengundi Melayunya 51 peratus, Cina 42 peratus dan India 6 peratus) faktor kebangkitan anak muda dan kesedaran sesetengah pengundi akan amalan korupsi dan seumpamanya, dibantu kejituan jentera dan penyokong PAS, KeADILan dan DAP serta kewibawaan dan kelantangan calonnya (Shamsul Iskandar), memberi sumbangan kepada kejatuhan Mohd Ali, ketua menteri selama lebih sedekad. 

Jika ditinjau kemenangan DAP (Goh Leong San) di Duyong pula (pengundi Cina lebih 50 peratus, Melayu 45 peratus dan India 4 peratus), saya percaya selain daripada sokongan pengundi tegar DAP, kesediaan ahli dan penyokong PAS dan KeADILan untuk memberi undi kepadanya berdasarkan suntikan semangat Pakatan Rakyat; menyebabkan Tian Loo beserta penyokongnya daripada orang Cina dan Melayu tersungkur sama. 

Rumusannya, kerjasama erat PAS, DAP dan KeADILan, membolehkan ketiga-tiga pihaknya mencatat kejayaan ditandingi calon mereka yang merupakan sejarah di bumi Hang Tuah.

Penyokong rakan PAS dalam Pakatan Rakyat terutama DAP telah membuka laluan untuk PAS mencatat 'kelahiran anak sulung' dengan memenangi Dun Bukit Baru manakala penyokong PAS telah membantu calon DAP untuk menang di Dun seperti Duyong. 

Berkenaan sahabat saya, Harun Mohamed yang bertanding di Dun Telok Mas (N23) seperti dicoretkan dalam keluaran lalu; syabas diucapkan kerana beliau berjaya merapatkan jurang majoriti kekalahan kepada hanya 701 undi (beliau mendapat 7,332 undi berbanding Latiff Tamby Chik memperolehi 8,033 undi),

Mungkin undian penyokong DAP sebagai bantuan kepadanya masih tidak memadai untuk beliau menang kerana kawasan itu mempunyai pengundi Melayu yang tinggi (70 peratus) sedangkan Cina hanya 28 peratus. 

Akhir sekali, syabas PAS Melaka kerana berjaya melahirkan anak sulung; pada PRU berikutnya diharapkan dapat melahirkan kembar yang banyak pula seterusnya mengetuai kerajaan baru rakyat; jadi terus bekerja keras dan berdoalah mulai sekarang! - http://lanh14.blogspot.com/

Hello. This is my last try to get honest replies. Anyone here who can answer my earlier questions about why the people are protesting?

Some of you guys also commented on several things like the BERSIH guy was taken away in a car (not sure how you can deduce that he is taken away to the police station based on the photo). I also wonder why some of you can be so sure that there is no blackout, Bangla voters and non-indelible ink. Even EC admitted that the ink is not indelible if the ink bottle is not shaken properly. Are you guys trolling?

The pictures tell all the stories. Intimidating the voters by the protest. The DAP cybertroopers posted all the lies. Blackout, Bnagla voters, indelible ink did not last and etc. It all turned out to be wild allegations. The dua alam is still holding rally to protest. The best way to protest is for all PR MPs and Aduns to refuse to be sworn in. THat will be the real effective protest. But Lim Guan Eng and PAS MB in Kelantan can’t wait to be sworn in. What a hypocrisy. It was just to play around with the emotions of the Chinese voters.

You became BN friendly after PRU 12 but BN wasn’t friendly to you at PRU 13 (and you didn’t become their candidate). Do you feel betrayed for your trust in them (just like you betrayed the trust in you by the voters, when you stood on PKR ticket)?

[PRESS STATEMENT] Pakatan Rakyat Will Remain Committed To Fostering Peace And Fighting Racism

Posted: 12 May 2013 07:29 AM PDT

Former appeal court judge Datuk Mohd Noor Abdullah's racist speech puts the Klu Klux Klan to shame and makes Hitler proud.

How long more are we to tolerate such hate mongering and race baiting from the illegitimate Najib government?

While UMNO sows the seeds of hatred and discord, we in Pakatan Rakyat will shower this nation with goodwill and mutual respect, and in doing so foster peace and understanding in our society.

Let's all stand shoulder to shoulder and remain united. To Malaysians – thank you for coming out tonight in Ipoh and showing these zealots what being Anak Malaysia means.

Utusan Malaysia is Now Utusan ‘Karut’

Posted: 12 May 2013 04:00 AM PDT

Malaysia-Chronicle

Utusan Malaysia has done it again. Their justification of BN's terrible performance was racial and totally divisive which does not help the nation building process at all after GE13. By singling out a race of people who decided to choose Pakatan Rakyat(PR) instead of the incumbent UMNO/BN government they have portrayed the Chinese Malaysians as ungrateful and should be dealt with in the near future.

Why the sudden interest in Chinese only? Was it because they voted overwhelmingly for PR as though none of the other races did especially in the urban areas? Or is it because the BN caretaker government spent millions on them than the other races and hoping that the Chinese would reciprocate on polling day? Either way, it is NOT right for Utusan Malaysia or Najib to single out a particular group of Malaysians for his own failure. Yes, I say it again it is Najib’s own failure!

Popular vote won  by PR

So, what does Utusan Malaysia wants to do now? Are they planning and scheming something sinister in this country of ours? Yes Utusan, it's either you are with us or against us. You have forgotten that it was the overwhelming Malaysians that voted for PR hence PR popular votes was much higher than BN for the first time in Malaysian history.

And you Utusan can't seem to take it, right? After all UMNO is your political master for the last 50 plus years and YOU have been a political tool for them as well! Utusan, you have fail to grasped what Malaysian DEMANDS are! Here are a few list to start with:-

> We want a government that looks into the interest of Malaysians and not those of the Banglas, Indons, Myanmarese, Filipinos only. One day we might have a Benggali news papers in this country and you Utusan could be out of job. Yes, I hope you will face your demise as the mainstream paper of this country soon as you have not been able to bear good fruits but instead rotten ones only! That goes to the other MSM's as well who have been spewing lies after lies to please your masters so that you and your board of directors could pamper yourself and be fed well like the cows of Bashan!

> We also want a government that is truly free from the scourge of corruption and incompetence which hinders our country from reaching our highest potential. Is it too much to ask? If yes, then go and tell your political masters they are not fit for the top job of this country in the first place.

>  We want a government that truly represent ALL Malaysians irrespective of their race, religion and lifestyle orientation. Again, is it too much to ask from a ruling government for this after 56 years in power? If yes, then I believe you have overstayed your welcome in this country. Somehow I can't help but to feel that the government we are having now do not represent any of us except their cronies and a certain wife. Yup, reminds me of the many corrupt regimes of the 20th and the 21st century in Asia and AFrica that must be kicked out.

>  We also want a government that prides itself in promoting transparency. I'm sure Utusan has not heard of this word or pretends not to. If no, please look up in the dictionary yourself. In short we want a government that upholds free and fair election as a norm in this country instead of us struggling and fighting for it thru the streets. This is a basic need in any democracy. We also need the rule of law to be applied at every level of the government administration be it the Police, civil service and not forgetting the Election Commission (EC) as well. As of today the EC has lost all credibility of what is left of them thanks to Dr. Mahathir who started his IC Project by giving IC's illegally to foreigners in Malaysia since 1980's.

>  We Malaysians want Pakatan Rakyat as our federal government. Yes, UMNO/BN needs to be OUT for good. There is no shred of goodness that is left in them anymore. You are only fit to be trampled upon as UMNO/BN has lost all their usefulness! The rakyat can't wait for the next GE and hope and pray that your demise will come sooner than later. Count your days UMNO. After all, the rakyat has finish off your BN counterparts i.e. MCA, MIC, Gerakan, PPP etc. UMNO, now it's your turn and be rest assured that the rakyat will not missed you for a minute once you are kicked out of Putrajaya! It's just a matter of time.
Now, you have heard what we want as citizens of this country and the list above is by no means exhaustive. But I will stop here as you Utusan are too dense to understand the new way of being a Malaysian today. Yup, the list is longer than the above and I'm sure the readers will continue to share their thoughts on this matter.

What we don’t want

Utusan, you have heard of our needs and wants as Malaysians. Now, hear out what we DO NOT WANT as Malaysians today.

- We DO NOT WANT a government that is corrupt to its core who do not know how distinguish of what is right from wrong. UMNO/BN have lost their moral compass hence the result in this GE 13 proves as such. It has nothing to do with any particular race or genetics. It has got everything to do with UMNO and their corrupt activities. Period!

- We DO NOT WANT the EC to be headed by the present leadership now who is not just corrupt but dishonest and unfair to all Malaysians. The EC has lost it and we the rakyat knows just too well that this unfair election practices will be continued if not 'enhance' in a more spectacular way for every other by-elections or GE in the future as long as UMNO/BN is in power.

- We DO NOT WANT the likes of Ibrahim Ali, Zulkifli Noordin and their Perkasa cohorts to be scot free in this land of ours. They have never represented Malaysian, whether the old or new Malaysia. They are the barbarians waiting at the gates ready to trampled our country. They and their spiritual advisor Dr. Mahathir are willing to go to any length to destroy this country just so to that their interest are protected and passed only to their next generation. Yes, they are only interested on their interest only. And if Najib can't lift a finger to shut them off then Najib should join them as well when that day of reckoning comes. And Dr. Mahathir, I hope you are still around when we Malaysians crush and defeat you and your racist group whom I suspect are suffering from some sort of inferiority complex since your Malay Dilemma days.

- We also DO NOT WANT any MSM in this country to spew lies and continue to sow hatred among Malaysians. Please stop this immediately as we the rakyat are getting fed up with your cheap and unsubstantiated news to confuse all right thinking Malaysians. We also know that you are losing your market share hence affecting your bottom line the past few years. We will continue to boycott you and we hope that one day all the MSM will change for the better to hear the voice of real Malaysians instead of those Malaysians who walks in the corridors of power and are ever willingly to sell our country to the highest bidder.

- We also DO NOT WANT UMNO/BN to continue ruling our country in such a ridiculous way which would end up Malaysia as the laughing stock of the world. We will if we do not UBAH!

We are almost there, hang in there everyone!

Imagine this, historically our country has been known as Suvarnabhumi (Land of Gold) by the Indian conquerors. Even the Greeks has called this piece of land as the Golden Cherosenes and the Chinese in those days also called it as 'Kin-Lin' which means gold. This land is not merely a land of milk and honey but a land of GOLD! It is a land which would bring prosperity and wellness to all those who live here at whichever time period.

In fact, many past European colonizers were ready to go all out to fight tooth and nail to get a piece of this land which eventually enriched them and their country they came from. Today, those conquerors has been replaced by UMNO and their elites and cronies has started to amass the kind of wealth which most Malaysians could ever dream off.

In addition, we are being fed with crumbs from the powers that be! Yes, it is merely crumbs (sisa-sisa) and what is our rightful has been taken away and given to UMNO cronies. Instead of ‘gold’ UMNO is turning our country into a perpetual junkyard!

Because of this we too need to fight tooth and nail to ensure our country is return to us. We will never give up in this battle against the evil regime until it's brought down to its knees and the rakyat rules again.

No matter how long it takes we will get there. Yup, we are almost there and it's just a matter of time before Change happens. For that, we must Press On!

Silver linings in a GE13 without gold

Posted: 12 May 2013 03:55 AM PDT

Malaysiakini

The dust is beginning to settle one week after the dirtiest election in the country’s history. Some of the dirt will stick, while others will hopefully wash away as the memory of the election fades.

My earlier pieces have focussed on the questions about the electoral process and impact of an Umno 'victory’. Here I turn to the effects of the election on the expansion of democracy in Malaysia.

The message is one of strength, not weakness, or hope, rather than despair.

A strengthened opposition

As the results came in on polling day, despite the irregularities, a new political landscape has been created. Foremost, is that Pakatan is a viable electoral entity. Unlike in 2008 or even in Sarawak 2011, this campaign was a Pakatan opposition campaign. The opposition went into the polls together, rather than meeting for the first time after the results or at the seat negotiation table.

penang black rally post-ge13 record crowd 7On the ground and in the ceramah there was more open cooperation among the three parties. While much more can be done to forge stronger relationships and while ideological differences persist, the common bonds were stronger as Malaysia was given the option to choose a viable national alternative.

The two-coalition option has changed the landscape politically, assuring that alternative views will play a role in setting agendas, shaping policies and representing perspectives in governance ahead.

This opposition is now national in scope – it has a foothold in every state and, importantly, more than one party in Pakatan has representation in every state. This national footprint is unprecedented as Pakatan now has a base to build on.

The majority of seats are at the state level, where the opposition has won 229 seats (95 for DAP, 85 for PAS and 49 for PKR) or 45% of the entire state seats up for grabs. The opposition may only hold on to three state governments – Penang, Kelantan and Selangor, but it has powerful minorities in Terengganu, Perak, Negeri Sembilan and Kedah and has sizeable minorities in every state.

The state assembly is an excellent arena to develop experience, groom talent and connect with people. The opposition simultaneously holds on to 40% of the seats in parliament, with many experienced MPs.

Diversity Pakatan's strength

This opposition is more multiethnic and representative, as Pakatan has taken over the inclusiveness banner from the BN. There are more non-Malays represented in Pakatan than the BN, while the majority of representatives in the opposition are Malay, representing the majority population.

NONEUnlike the BN, many of the members in Pakatan are not from the political elite, as they come from more diverse backgrounds while at the same time have stronger professional training than in earlier years. More attention has been spent on selecting better calibre leaders.

The opposition coalition has already apparently been tested, as offers were made at both national and state levels to defect. From calls to the DAP to PAS, and individual offers of funds and positions of power to reps to move across, the immediate impact has been one of Pakatan resilience.

While some of the responses by disgruntled factions such as those in Selangor were unstatesmanlike and not in keeping with what is expected of national leaders, the immediate dynamic has been one of stronger ties. The shadow and shared pain caused by electoral irregularities over the polls, which has affected all the parties, has reinforced these bonds.

In the months ahead, as the opposition parties also head to internal polls this year, strain will inevitably be placed on the opposition coalition with the reality of defections always being present. Time will tell who is really loyal to reform and who are those who are more vested personally in the trappings of power. Strain will come in the form of different ideas and priorities, but time will also tell whether five years of dialogue will overpower the points of dissent.

Learning lessons

The tests for the opposition will be fierce in the months ahead. Most of these will be internally generated. As with Umno’s polls, all the opposition parties face significant challenges internally, accommodating the new representatives, addressing regeneration and resolving factionalism and ideological differences within parties.

NONEThey have to deal with the fact that unlike in 2008 the opposition is not an equal partnership in terms of results. The DAP won the lion’s share of the seats, with PAS suffering the most losses. All three parties gained in popular vote, however, despite the unevenness of the results, and their representation has broadened nationally across parties.

It is no longer fully correct to speak about the parties as representing only one community, as all fielded Malaysians across ethnicities, although the roots of the party identities are still strong and can feed into the differences among and within parties.

Beyond dealing with unevenness of the results the parties also have to address the reality that in some fundamental ways their electoral strategies did not work. The results cannot be completely blamed on the irregularities. The outreach to the Malay lower classes and East Malaysia were not effective, clearly.

The postmortems that will be done will be essential in setting the course for the future, but also affect opposition cooperation. These debates are likely to be played out during party elections. One important dimension will be how much blame will centre on one another.

In this regard there are two important points to share. First, governance issues played a major role in the results. In both Penang and Selangor these state governments gained at the polls, reflecting confidence in performance. The comparatively poorer performance of PAS governed states, especially in Kedah, contributed to the loss of seats.

Kelantan faces the struggle of regeneration and new ideas, and Kedah’s PAS leadership did not inspire confidence, especially among the young in Kedah. It is not a coincidence that PAS lost this government, as it was clearly in the cards well before the results were announced. This is a real challenge for Pakatan ahead, the need to put qualified professionals in leadership positions to govern.

NONEThe challenge is especially pressing for PAS. The time for ustaz-dominant state administrative leadership has passed, and this dynamic is difficult for the old guard in PAS to accept, and this refusal at acceptance lost public support. PAS has to come to terms with the situation that if it wants to govern nationally, it has to field national leaders that are seen as qualified capable national leaders.

The second lesson was one of infighting within the opposition. Factionalism has now become common in all the parties, and this contributed to losses for Pakatan – in Kedah, Kelantan, Terengganu and Perak notably.

Umno comparatively was not as affected by division as Pakatan in the final results, perhaps with Selangor the exception. With political expansion comes the challenge of party management, minimisation of rogue factions/inflated egos and improving communications.

Greater reflection on the results, the campaign performance, the manifestos and messaging are part and parcel of any postmortem on an election, but what needs to be appreciated is that lessons have to come from all sides, including the actions of the opposition itself. This is an inherent part of expanding democratic governance.

People’s power

Ultimately, this election was one shaped by the people. Ordinary Malaysians came out in record numbers, guarded the barricades against electoral fraud, watched and reported on the process and stood up to be counted. Their participation was truly extraordinary.

Most voted for change, but many voted for the status quo. In all assessments of the polls, the voices of dissent cannot be dismissed and ignored. They are part of the mosaic that makes up Malaysia, the neighbours, colleagues and friends who are part of the community.

penang black rally post-ge13 record crowd 4Empowerment and activism were centre-stage in this election. The intensity of emotions and scope of involvement was unprecedented, across the political divide. Rather than work through parties and elites, people decided on their own what to do and just did it. Malaysians embraced their roles as citizens this election, voting and participating like never before across the globe.

As such, larger geographic sections of Malaysia have become more politically awakened compared to the past. A new 505 political cohort has been shaped. This election saw a southern awakening, as Johoreans joined political events in unprecedented numbers, including Malays, and it saw an increased awareness of the young in politics.

The gains at the polls for the opposition would not have been possible without multiethnic and youth support. The awakenings have happened in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Penang in 2008, and in the urban areas of Sarawak in 2011. They have happened in the universities and on Facebook.

The gains translated into more seats and popular votes for the opposition and have now done so on repeated occasions, as voters once aware became more committed politically. Political awakenings in Malaysia have been resilient to date. Key will be whether this trend continues, as voters recognise their power as agents of change to affect the outcome at the polls and shape the political discourse.

This was also combined with an increased sense of national identity. Malaysians put Malaysia first in record numbers, and openly condemned racism, intolerance and unfairness. In the wake of the elections, the extraordinary character of Malaysians came through, not just in the messaging, but the acceptance of others and the views of others, even at the height of disappointment.

The black 505 rallies were celebrations of community, not dates for division. While anger persists among many, with many gutted by how the election was conducted, increasingly the focus of the anger is constructively aimed on reform rather than on blaming fellow Malaysians.

This constructiveness was even echoed by some Umno members (although only a handful), despite the vitriol spewed by the mainstream media outlets and by the race blame game of some leaders, and this speaks to the maturity and national character of the majority. The days of racial suspicion are on the decline, as the post-GE13 bonds of the Malaysians family are being forged and strengthened. This is a mark of a new Malaysia on the eve of May 13th.

GE13 a new beginning

Politics in democracies are not just about elections. The contestation over power and engagement over issues does not end at the ballot box. In fact, it just begins.

NONEOne of the most transformative changes nationally has been politics moving outside of the arena of formal politics. More and more Malaysians are involved in political activities outside of political parties, away from elite politics. This election is likely to only deepen this trend, to move people towards where they can see immediate results from engagement.

The impact will be a broadening of political contestation nationally, a strengthening of civil society and even more political empowerment in local communities. The doors of electoral power may appear closed for now, but there are other doors opening. Other electoral doors will open as well in the future.

These activities will only serve to bring more empowered and informed people to the polls in the next electoral contest and for the battles ahead over reform, especially electoral reform. This will only strengthen democratic governance in Malaysia, as more power will be embraced by the people, especially younger Malaysians.

GE13 offers real promise of change, despite the obstacles in the process itself and the reactionary responses. The steps ahead are outreach and understanding, community building and mutual appreciation. The burden rests on all of Malaysia’s leaders to act with statesmanship, to not forget that GE13 was a people’s election and the voice of all the people needs to be respected and engaged.

The election itself may have thwarted a democratic result, but the mobilisation around the polls and lessons in the aftermath show that the pressures and avenues for inclusive democratic governance remain robust.

In political rallies, a younger set reflects Malaysia’s divide

The Malaysian Insider

rallybatukawan

Dressed in black and her hair flecked with blonde dye, Geetha looked like she was likelier to enjoy her Saturday night at a club rather than a rally.

But she was one of thousands of youths who walked for miles to the Penang state stadium in mainland Batu Kawan last night for the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) rally to protest last weekend's general election results.

The crowd was mainly young and multiracial, some who wore hotpants and some in headscarves, but all were in black and carrying party flags to listen and cheer PR leaders explain their dispute with the results.

 For Geetha, the rally was a chance to return to her Penang home state and go for the rally as she missed the Kelana Jaya stadium rally that drew thousands on a wet Wednesday night.

"I didn't want to miss this, so I made sure I am here," she chatted while walking down the road narrowed by haphazardly parked motorcycles, cars and lorries to the stadium.

She and the thousands at the stadium are the first-time voters who most likely voted for PR rather than the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) in the May 5 general elections.

Although BN took back Kedah and its lynchpin Umno gained nine more federal seats to 88 compared to Election 2008, the ruling coalition only took 133 parliamentary seats in Election 2013 against the 140 five years ago.

In elections for 12 state assemblies, BN only took a combined 275 seats in Election 2013, down fro 306 five years ago – reflecting PR's rising popularity especially among the youths, who form a major part of the electorate.

Some 13.3 million voters were eligible to cast their ballots in Election 2013, reflecting a jump of 3.4 million voters from the 2008 general elections. An estimated 40 per cent of the total electorate are below 40, says the Election Commission (EC).

The BN government had been targetting these youths in the run-up to the polls, allocating some RM100 million for its 1M4U campaign to attract youths. It had signed up beauty queens and pop singers as ambassadors and even set up a radio station for them.

Another initiatives included a rebate scheme for smartphones and RM250 cash handouts for those earning below RM3,000 apart from providing almost free motorcycle driving licences to them.

There were also social media campaigns through Facebook, YouTube and Twitter to get the youths to support BN apart from activities organised by component parties and news coverage in the mainstream media.

Most of the crowd at the stadiums in Kelana Jaya and Batu Kawan are within that target market for BN but from their buzzing vuvuzelas and cheers that rocked the stadiums, their hearts and minds lie with PR.

"We need change. It is pure and simple," said Sunny Lim, as he waved a giant PAS flag in the stadium in Batu Kawan.

"We are young, we are colour-blind and we want a good government," he added, joining his friends in a lap around the stadium to cheers from the stands.

He and the others there are BN's challenges in the next five years, to go beyond cosmetic changes and walk the talk in a society that is getting younger and willing to forgo a good night out for political rallies.

Alkisah seorang pejuang…

Posted: 11 May 2013 08:14 PM PDT

2 Rejab 1434 H. [MOD] -


Seorang pejuang bernama Nasrudin Abduh yang terkenal dengan kejujuran dan amanahnya telah berjumpa dengan Tok Gurunya Ustaz Nik Ibrahim.

"Mengapa ana masih berasa tidak tenteram dan memandang rendah pada diri sendiri? Ana dah berjaya mengharungi pelbagai kegagalan, dan melakukan kebajikan dan menyelamatkan mereka yang lemah dan tertindas. Tapi apabila melihat Tok Guru, ana rasa masih tidak setanding Tok Guru," kata Nasrudin.

"Tunggu sekejap. Lepas ana jumpa semua yang datang melawat hari ini, ana bagikan jawapan," jawab Ustaz Nik Ibrahim.

Nasrudin melihat bagaimana Tok Guru menyambut semua yang melawatnya dengan senyuman dan penuh kesabaran sehinggalah matahari terbenam.

Selepas semua pelawat dah tiada, Nasrudin cepat-cepat bertanya, "Apa jawapannya Tok Guru?"

Tok Guru memimpin tangannya ke padang. Mereka berdua duduk melihat bulan yang penuh memancar dalam ketenangan.

"Nampak tak bulan itu? Cantik tak? Ia akan menjaga sepanjang malam sehinggalah subuh menjelma, di mana matahari pula akan bersinar," kata Ustaz Nik Ibrahim.

"Tapi cahaya matahari lebih cerah, dan boleh menunjukkan segalanya dengan terang untuk ditatapi mata kita – pokok, gunung mahupun awan. Ana pun dah berfikir lama: Mengapa tidak pernah kedengaran bulan berkata: Mengapa saya tidak boleh seterang matahari?" tambah Ustaz Nik Ibrahim lagi.

"Sudah tentu tidak," jawab Nasrudin. "Matahari dan bulan adalah dua benda berbeza – kedua-duanya mempunyai kecantikan sendiri. Tak boleh banding antara dua."

"Anta sudah jumpa jawapannya. Ana dan anta adalah dua orang berlainan, kita sama-sama membantu orang ramai dalam cara yang kita tahu supaya dunia ini menjadi tempat lain lebih baik dan Islam didaulatkan. Yang lain adalah sampingan sahaja termasuklah jawatan," jawab Ustaz Nik Ibrahim.

"Putus asa adalah kegagalan sebenar. Ingat itu," tambah Ustaz Nik Ibrahim.

Nasrudin tersenyum. Mulai hari itu, beliau tidak lagi cuba membandingkan dirinya dengan Tok Guru – sebaliknya membuat segala perkara dan melawan segala kemungkaran dengan caranya tersendiri.

Senyum

Walaupun tanpa jawatan, kerja-kerja kebajikan dan lawan kemungkaran harus diteruskan. Jangan putus asa. Kerana itu titik noktah suatu perjuangan.

‘Penggeli pundi-pundi’ jadi beban kepada Najib

Posted: 11 May 2013 08:13 PM PDT

2 Rejab 1434 H. [MOD] -

KUALA LUMPUR: Kali ini sahajalah peluang bagi Najib untuk memperbetulkan keadaan. Itu pun jika beliau mempunyai keberanian yang kuat.


Justeru, Najib perlu paparkan barisan yang baru walaupun dari kalangan yang kuat memberikan kritikan terhadap beliau.

"Apa faedahnya hanya mengambil mereka yang mengampu dan yang hanya tahu 'menggeli pundi-pundi' beliau sahaja kerana mereka ini akhirnya akan menjadi beban kepada beliau," tulis Aspan Alias di dalam blognya.

Menurutnya, apabila Najib dalam masalah mereka bukannya boleh membantu tetapi sebaliknya akan menambah beban demi beban terhadap negara dan beliau sendiri.

Bagi Aspan, mereka itu tidak akan lagi bersama beliau apabila beliau dalam masalah apatah lagi semasa persaraan beliau nanti.

"Najib perlu ingat kehidupan yang paling pahit ialah apabila semasa akhir hayat dan dalam persaraan kita dihina oleh masyarakat, lebih-lebih lagi ditinggalkan kawan-kawan dan sahabat yang pernah bersama kita," tulisnya lagi, sebagaimana di bawah.

Pilihanraya ke-13 merupakan pilihanraya yang paling mahal sekali dalam sejarah negara merdeka. Ia disebabkan kerana membuat persediaan untuk mempertahankan kerusi BN setelah mengalami keputusan buruk pada pilihanraya sebelumnya pada tahun 2008 dahulu. Mahu tidak mahu, semua mesti mengakui ianya amat mahal kerana persediaan itu melibatkan perbelanjaan yang dilakukan secara 'ad hoc' kepada rakyat dalam berbagai-bagai bentuk untuk menawan hati rakyat.

Tetapi keputusan tetap lebih buruk kerana keseluruhannya BN telah mendapat hanya 133 kerusi, 7 kerusi kurang dari pilihanraya yang semasa itu dianggap yang terburuk pada 2008 dahulu. Dengan keputusan yang baru ini, ia menunjukkan BN terpaksa melakukan perkara yang baru, jika mahu disebut kembali seperti yang saya sebut dalam posting yang lepas, iaitu melakukan perkara yang belum pernah terfikir oleh kita semua.

Memindahkan situasi politik dari situasi sekarang kepada situasi yang baru dengan jujur akan membawa rakyat kepada 'ambience' politik yang berbeza sedikit sebanyak akan membantu menenangkan pemikiran rakyat yang tidak berpuas hati dengan situasi dan keadaan persekitaran politik hari ini. PM Najib perlu memahami apa yang menjadi sebutan ramai yang tidak baik di bawah ini. Beliau mesti memahami semua masalah sebelum beliau berfikir untuk mencuba menyelesaikannya.

Bawalah rakyat berfikir ke persekitaran politik yang baru. Jangan lagi memaparkan peribadi yang sudah dipersoalkan oleh ramai terutamanya berhubung dengan rasuah dan menyalah gunakan kuasa. Tunjukkan yang Perdana Menteri sekarang benar-benar serius untuk memerangi rasuah dengan tidak memasukkan mereka yang sudah mempunyai stigma dan terbukti rasuah dari segi moralnya.

Selama ini rakyat sudah boleh meneka siapa yang akan dimasukkan ke dalam Jemaah Menteri kerana kebiasaannya pimpinan hari ini akan hanya memberikan jawatan penting itu kepada kroni dan rakan kerana kepentingan bersama dalam perniagaan. Inilah persepsi sebenarnya yang menjadikan ramai di antara rakyat sudah membenci UMNO dan BN itu. Rakyat sudah mempunyai persepsi buruk terhadap pemimpin yang sukar dihilangkan.

PM Najib pada persepsi mereka, akan meletakkan terus sahabat-sahabat beliau di dalam Jemaah Menteri orang-orang yang telah terbukti melakukan rasuah politik dan telah pun diambil tindakan terhadap mereka. Tetapi rakyat beranggapan yang Najib akan meletakkan mereka kembali dalam kabinet semata-mata kerana kepentingan politik beliau.

Jika keadaan ini masih berlaku salahkan rakyat berselindung di sebalik parti-parti pembangkang dan melakukan protes secara politik yang telah pun terbukti menjahanamkan imej kerajaan itu? Lagi pun jika mereka lakukan protes politik dan berusaha menukar kerajaan yang mereka sudah tidak yakini itu merupakan hak mereka kerana menukar kerajaan itu bukannya tindakan jenayah.

Ini negara demokrasi. Tetapi apabila rakyat memberontak pihak kerajaan tanpa malu-malu memarahi parti pembangkang kerana rakyat berdiri di belakang parti-parti itu. Jangan diikuti cara Dr Mahathir kerana beliau selalu memarahi sesiapa yang menyokong pembangkang tetapi tidak mahu mengakui kesalahan sendiri. Mahathir mempunyai kepercayaan yang berhak melakukan kesalahan ialah pihak BN sahaja dan tidak perlu diambil tindakan dan terus terlepas dari undang-undang. Mana boleh begitu?

Kali ini sahajalah peluang bagi Najib untuk memperbetulkan keadaan. Itu pun jika beliau mempunyai keberanian yang kuat. Paparkan barisan yang baru walaupun dari kalangan yang kuat memberikan kritikan terhadap beliau. Apa faedahnya hanya mengambil mereka yang mengampu dan yang hanya tahu 'menggeli pundi-pundi' beliau sahaja kerana mereka ini akhirnya akan menjadi beban kepada beliau.

Apabila Najib dalam masalah mereka ini bukannya boleh membantu tetapi sebaliknya akan menambah beban demi beban terhadap negara dan beliau sendiri. Mereka ini tidak akan lagi bersama beliau apabila beliau dalam masalah apatah lagi semasa persaraan beliau nanti. Najib perlu ingat kehidupan yang paling pahit ialah apabila semasa akhir hayat dan dalam persaraan kita dihina oleh masyarakat, lebih-lebih lagi ditinggalkan kawan-kawan dan sahabat yang pernah bersama kita.

Ingatlah, segala amal serta ubudiah kita ialah untuk kita mati dalam kalimah dan segala bakti kita kepada masyarakat yang untuk kita hidup dalam ketenangan semasa dalam sisa-sisa hayat kita nanti.

Berkawan dan bersahabatlah dengan mereka yang diyakini bersama kita terus-terusan sehingga hari tua kita. Itulah sebabnya Najib perlu mengenali siapa sahabat dan siapa rakan. Najib perlu ingat UMNO itu untuk membela orang ramai. Parti itu bukannya untuk menyediakan kepentingan seseorang yang mahu naik dalam parti dan akhirnya menguasai negara. UMNO itu untuk orang ramai.

Najib perlu bersahabat dan berkawan dengan rakyat bukannya bersahabat dengan mereka yang akhirnya membebankan beliau sendiri. Doa rakyat biasa yang ramai untuk beliau lebih mustajab dari doa kroni-kroni yang hampir dengan beliau kerana kepentingan peribadi mereka sahaja.

Undi dapat habuan

Tze Tzin (kiri) dan Abdul Halim (kanan) bersama kesemua hampir 200 pengadu menunggu dihadapan premis seperti yang dijanjikan pihak bertanggungjawab di Sungai Dua kelmarin.
GEORGETOWN - Satu laporan dibuat kepada Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) setelah menerima aduan orang ramai yang didakwa ditipu pihak tidak bertanggungjawab berhubung dakwaan ditawarkan wang tunai sebelum Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 lalu.

Laporan itu dibuat Ahli Parlimen Bayan Baru, Sim Tze Tzin bersama calon  PKR Dun Teluk Bahang, Datuk Abdul Halim Hussain yang menerima aduan daripada lebih 200 pengadu yang dilihat beratur di sebuah premis di Sungai Dua di sini, tengah hari kelmarin untuk menuntut wang tunai seperti yang dijanjikan kepada mereka.

Tze Tzin berkata, beliau yang menerima aduan itu bergegas ke premis berkenaan dan berjumpa sendiri dengan semua pengadu terbabit bagi mengetahui perkara sebenar.

"Mereka mendakwa, telah dihubungi seorang individu yang tidak dikenali yang memaklumkan supaya mereka boleh menuntut habuan yang dijanjikan sebelum ini di sebuah premis di Sungai Dua bermula semalam (kelmarin) hingga Ahad (hari ini), antara jam 11 pagi hingga 8 malam.

"Kesemua yang menerima panggilan serta sistem pesanan ringkas (sms) berpusu-pusu ke premis berkenaan untuk menuntut habuan mereka iaitu wang tunai," katanya. ketika menghubungi Sinar Harian kelmarin.

Lebih mengejutkan, ada juga daripada mereka mendakwa diminta oleh seorang Adun berbuat demikian.

Tze Tzin berkata, selepas menerima aduan daripada kesemua pengadu di situ, beliau bersama Abdul Halim kemudiannya bergegas ke Balai Polis Sungai Nibong untuk membuat laporan polis sebelum ke SPR negeri.

"Selepas berbual dengan mereka, saya merasakan ada yang tidak kena dengan perkara itu. Saya kemudiannya membuat satu laporan polis dan SPR. Laporan di SPR, ia dibuat kepada Timbalan Pengarah II, Rizal Kamis untuk diambil tindakan.

"Saya berharap agar polis dan SPR membuat siasatan menyeluruh, profesional serta adil. Saya juga berharap agar kes ini akan dibawa ke perhatian Pengarah SPR kerana ia dianggap serius. Saya menyifatkan ia perbuatan membeli undi," katanya.

Sementara itu, Rizal berkata, beliau akan meluluskan aduan itu dan akan menyerahkan kepada ibu pejabat sebelum membuat keputusan mengenai tindakan seterusnya.

Tze Tzin berkata, jika benar perkara itu berlaku, beliau mengharapkan agar pihak berkuasa akan mengambil tindakan berikutan ia menjadikan pilihan raya pada kali ini tidak bersih seperti yang diharapkan.

"Jika didapati ia satu perbuatan yang menyalahi undang-undang, saya kesal kerana ia seolah-olah membenarkan orang yang berduit dan kaya raya membeli undi rakyat semata-mata untuk kemenangan calon mereka.

"Jika ia terbukti benar ada unsur politik wang, ia satu perbuatan serius kerana ia melibatkan keputusan pilihan raya. Kita akan buat laporan kepada Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) Isnin ini (esok) untuk siasatan lanjut kerana merasakan ia ada hubung kait dengan gejala rasuah," katanya.

Ketua Polis Daerah Timur Laut, Asisten Komisioner Gan Kong Meng ketika dihubungi mengesahkan telah menerima laporan berhubung perkara itu dan akan merujuk kes itu kepada SPRM untuk tindakan selanjutnya.

Rakyat banjiri perhimpunan Black 505 di P Pinang

Posted: 11 May 2013 06:57 PM PDT

2 Rejab 1434 H. [MOD] -
Pekan Batu Kawan, yang terletak di koridor selatan Pulau Pinang, dibanjiri lautan manusia yang menghadiri perhimpunan Black 505 Pakatan Rakyat di stadium di situ malam tadi.


Diadakan tiga hari selepas 120,000 orang membanjiri perhimpunan yang sama di Kuala Lumpur, perhimpunan di Pulau Pinang malam tadi turut disertai mereka dari negeri jiran - Kedah dan Perak.



Terdapat juga peserta dari Selangor dan Negeri Sembilan yang mengibarkan bendera negeri masing-masing tanpa henti di tengah-tengah simbol roket (DAP), bulan (PAS) dan mata (PKR).

penang black rally post-ge13 record crowd 4Lapan puluh lima peratus hadirin yang berbilang kaum itu adalah orang muda lelaki dan wanita, yang datang seawal jam 6 petang dengan menaiki kereta dan motosikal, membawa bendera parti dan kain rentang, serta meniup vuvuzelas di dalam stadium yang penuh sesak.

Sejak pukul 4 petang, Lebuhraya Utara-Selatan telah sesak dengan kereta yang merangkak melalui laluan keluar Bukit Tambun ke Batu Kawan - yang merupakan tempat makanan laut yang terkenal.
Pemimpin Pakatan seperti Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang Lim Guan Eng, Timbalan Presiden PAS Mohamad Sabu dan ADUN Seberang Jaya ADUN Dr Afif Bahardin, meninggalkan mereka sekurang-kurangnya lima kilometer jauhnya untuk sampai ke stadium, yang bergemerlapan dengan gerai-gerai yang dihiasi lampu berwarna-warni.

penang black rally post-ge13 record crowd 3Ketua Umum PKR, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim yang tiba pada kira-kira jam 9 pagi disambutkan dengan tepukan ketika melangkah masuk ke dalam stadium - yang berkapisiti memuatkan 80,000 orang.
Sepanjang perhimpunan selama empat jam itu, hadirin
membawa kain rentang dan sepanduk yang mengecam sikap  perkauman, dengan mesej seperti "Kita semua rakyat Malaysia" dan "Tsunami Rakyat".

Ini adalah reaksi balas terhadap tuduhan Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak bahawa 'tsunami Cina' mengakibatkan parti-parti komponen bukan Melayu dalam BN kalah teruk, apabila mereka mengundi Pakatan, sekaligus memberinya 51.4 peratus undi popular berbanding dengan BN 48.6 peratus.
Apa lagi yang rakyat Malaysia mahu?
Anwar dalam ucapannya menyentuh tentang kekecewaan rakyat terhadap komen Najib itu serta kontroversi laporan muka depanUtusan Malaysia yang bertajuk 'Apa lagi Cina mahu'.

penang black rally post-ge13 record crowd 7"Biarlah 'Brother' Anwar jawab soalan-soalan itu," katanya
sambil menegaskan bahawa orang Cina, Melayu, India, Dayak dan Kadazan mahukan pilihanraya yang bersih dan adil dan mereka mahu kekayaan rakyat dikembalikan dan tidak dirompak oleh BN atau Umno.

"Pilihan raya ini sebagaimana yang dikatakan oleh Sasterawan Negara, Datuk A Samad Said adalah ibu segala penipuan," kata Anwar sambil berkata pihaknya mempunyai bukti dan mahu Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya menjelaskannya kerana "mereka tidak boleh menipu rakyat Malaysia".
"Mereka telah menipu sebelum ini dan kita memaafkan mereka. Dalam PRU13 ini, kami menuntut jawapannya sekarang!" katanya disambut tepukan gemuruh hadirin.

penang black rally post-ge13 record crowd 5Sementara itu, dalam ucapannya, Lim yang sangat gembira
dengan jumlah kehadiran malam tadi, berkata Pakatan memecahkan rekod sekali lagi dengan menarik kehadiran 125,000 walaupun tempat perhimpunan itu ditukar dalam masa yang singkat dari Stadium MPSP di Bukit Mertajam ke Batu Kawan dalam masa sehari.

Katanya, terdapat ribuan lagi di luar stadium yang tidak dapat masuk kerana bahagian dalamnya sesak dengan hadirin.

Beliau berikrar untuk menjaga kebajikan semua rakyat Pulau Pinang, termasuk penyokong BN, dan berkata "Kami akan berbuat demikian walaupun kita tidak faham mengapa mereka menyokong BN, tetapi kita tidak menyalahkan sesiapa."
Beliau mengucapkan terima kasih kepada mereka yang pertama kali mengundi dan pengundi wanita kerana memberi kepercayaan kepada Pakatan Rakyat, sambil menambah bahawa mereka mengundi gabungan itu kerana mereka mahu masa depan yang cerah.
"Berbeza dengan apa yang Najib kata, tsunami ini melibatkan semua orang. Terdapat hanya 25 peratus pengundi Cina dan Pakatan memperolehi 51.4 peratus undi popular, apa jadi dengan baki 26 peratus lagi?" dia disoal.


"Jangan beritahu saya mereka adalah undi Bangla," katanya berjenaka, yang disambut dengan sorakan gemuruh hadirin.

Ada yang beredar jam 3 pagi


Mohamad, yang lebih dikenali sebagai Mat Sabu, pula menceriakan hadirin dengan ucapannya yang menyindir SPR.



"SPR kata, dakwat kekal, tapi ia tak boleh tahan walaupun untuk satu jam. Hah! Hah! Hah!" beliau ketawa, dan hadirin turut ketawa bersama-sama.



Katanya, mereka tidak malu untuk mengatakan bahawa ini adalah pilihan raya yang paling bersih dan paling adil. 



Mat Sabu mendakwa bahawa telefon bimbitnya telah digodam di mana mesej perkauman seperti "Hidup Cina, Melayu Mampus" telah dihantar kepada orang ramai, dengan beberapa orang memanggil memarahinya kerana didakwa berbuat demikian.



"Saya tidak pernah menghantar mesej itu dan saya tidak tahu siapa yang menggodam telefon bimbit saya. Tetapi anda tahu mereka yang sering bermain dengan isu-isu perkauman seperti itu," katanya, dan orang ramai melaungkan 'Umno'.



Kira-kira 10 pemimpin lain bergilir-gilir mereka untuk bercakap di majlis tersebut yang berakhir pada kira-kira tengah malam, tetapi orang ramai masih tidak meninggalkan perkarangan stadium itu.

Dunia kutuk Israel

Puluhan ribu masyarakat Islam Mesir berhimpun dan memprotes kekejaman Zionis kerana tindakan campur tangan terhadap pentadbiran di Syria.

Sementara itu, stesen TV Syria melaporkan, tentera Zionis telah membedil pusat penyelidikan Jamraya di barat laut Damsyik.
