Pemuda Yang Menongkah Arus Demi Kebenaran

Posted: 25 May 2013 10:46 PM PDT

Di waktu golongan muda disebut-sebut sebagai tidak peduli dan prihatin dengan politik negara dan agak berat untuk mendaftar sebagai pengundi, terdapat seorang pemuda, Mohd Fadhli Khaharruddin (gambar sebelah) sanggup mengambil risiko untuk membuktikan wujud kelemahan serta kepincangan dalam SPR.

Pemuda buktikan memang boleh mengundi dua kali

KUALA LUMPUR: Biarpun sebelum ini Suruhan Jaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) bermati-matian menyangkal dakwaan boleh mengundi lebih sekali ekoran penggunaan dakwat kekal, seorang pemuda di Kuantan semalam endedahkan bahawa beliau boleh mengundi dua kali.

Mohd Fadhli Khaharruddin, seperti dilapor Sinar Harian Online, mengaku keluar mengundi dua kali kerana mahu membuktikan sistem pilihan raya menggunakan dakwat kekal masih boleh dipertikaikan.

"Saya mengundi kali pertama jam 10.30 pagi di saluran 4, peti undi Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Isap dan kemudian undi kali kedua pada jam 1.15 petang di lokasi yang sama," katanya dipetik akhbar bahasa Melayu versi online itu.

"Dengan cara mengundi sebanyak dua kali maka saya boleh membuktikan bahawa sistem pilihan raya masih boleh dipertikaikan," katanya lagi.

Bagaimanapun, beliau mendakwa tidak buang undinya kali kedua, sebaliknya berhasrat menyimpan kertas undi SPR dan nombor saluran sebagai bukti bahawa prosedur mengundi dengan dakwat kekal lemah.

Katanya, tindakan untuk keluar mengundi kali kedua dilakukan tanpa disuruh dan dibayar mana-mana pihak sebaliknya dengan rela hati berikutan dakwat kekal di jarinya tanggal sepenuhnya apabila dibasuh selepas undi kali pertama.

Ekoran dakwat kekal yang boleh tanggal dan terlalu mudah untuk melepasi setiap petugas untuk mengundi kali kedua itu, beliau membuat satu laporan polis.

Laporan polis itu katanya dibuat supaya tindakan beliau itu tidak ditafsir sebagai mempermainkan sistem pilihan raya.

Tindakan oleh Mohd Fadhli ini sekaligus menguatkan lagi dakwaan bahawa wujud ruang manipulasi yang mendorong kepada penipuan pada Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 (PRU13) lalu.

Embracing Change To Win The Future: Challenges and Development of Pakatan Rakyat As A Government-in Waiting In Accordance With The Will Of The Majority 51% Of Malaysians To Rule Putrajaya

Posted: 25 May 2013 08:59 AM PDT

Speech By Penang Chief Minister and DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In London School of Economics In London On 24.5.2013

Salutations: Moderator Professor Danny Quah,

1. First of all, I would like to say thank you to all the students present here today who are preparing for their exams. I have been informed that this week is the start of your exams here at LSE and I am sure that all of you, being higher achievers, are already well prepared which is why you are here attending my talk this evening. Nonetheless, I would like to wish you all the best and good luck for your exams.

2. I stand here today as a proud Malaysian. I am proud of the 11.2 million Malaysians who stood in the hot sun for many hours waiting to exercise their democratic right. I am proud of the old, the young, the not so young or old, West Malaysians and East Malaysians, Malay, Chinese, Indian, Orang Asli, Eurasian, Melanau, Iban, Bidayuh, Orang Ulu, Kadazan, Murut, Bajau and everyone else who turned out to vote. 84.5% of Malaysians cast their vote on the 5th of May, a record in Malaysian electoral history. 86.8% of voters in Penang cast their vote, also a record.

3. I am proud of the hundreds of Malaysians who lined up for hours at the Malaysian High Commission here in London and who cast an overseas vote for the first time. Even though the High Commission and the Electoral Commission didn't seem prepared, I am deeply encouraged by the fact that so many of you signed up to be overseas voters and some, to be overseas observers for Pakatan Rakyat.

4. I am also proud of Pakatan's achievement in the 13th General Elections. Despite the overwhelming advantage of money, machinery and media enjoyed by the BN, Pakatan still won an additional 7 parliament seats, from 82 in 2008 to 89 in 2013.While the national focus has been on the parliamentary level, we must not forget that Pakatan won an additional 32 state seats. In fact, every single Pakatan party won more state seats in 2013 compared to 2008 (PAS, PKR and DAP won 2, 8 and 22 more seats respectively).

5. I am thankful to the voters in Penang who increased their support for the Pakatan state government from 58% in 2008 to 67% in 2013 and allowed us to increase the number of state seats won from 29 to 30.

6. While we did not reach our objective of forming the next government, we have made significant inroads into BN territory. By winning 5 parliament and 18 state seats in Johor, 6 parliament seats in Sarawak in addition to the 15 state seats won in the 2011 state elections and the 3 parliament and 11 state seats in Sabah, there are no longer any more 'fixed deposit' states for the BN.

7. For the first time in history in Malaysia, BN failed to win a majority of the popular vote and for the first time in history in Malaysia, an opposition coalition, Pakatan Rakyat, won a majority of the popular vote. By winning 51% of the popular vote, Pakatan can rightly claim to have the support of a majority of Malaysian voters. By the same token, the BN government is effectively a minority government even though it still commands a majority of seats.

8. It is also the first time in electoral history anywhere in the world, where a coalition which has so obviously won a majority of the popular vote has failed to win a majority of seats. In any other first past the post system which respects the one-man-one-vote principal, Pakatan would have won more than 51% of seats thereby allowing us to form the federal government. Instead, the stark unfairness of the electoral system is demonstrated by the fact that Pakatan won 22 out of the 28 parliament seats with more than 90,000 voters while BN won ALL 30 seats with 30,000 voters or less.

9. 'May you live in interesting times' is a well-known proverb. Some have said that this is a curse. If this is indeed a curse, then may it be a curse to those who want to continue to use the politics of the past, the politics of fear and intimidation in order to maintain power. These are indeed interesting times for Malaysia and Malaysians. And for Pakatan Rakyat, I foresee there to be 8 main challenges as we move towards our objective of winning power in Putrajaya.

Eight challenges for Pakatan moving forward

10. Firstly, we have to keep on fighting the perception and false claim that the GE2013 result was a Chinese Tsunami when in actual fact it was a Malaysian tsunami. The results are very clear. The Chinese are only 30% of the total voting population. Even if Pakatan had won 80% of the Chinese vote, this means that only 24% out of the 51% of our popular vote came from the Chinese. The other 27%, or the majority of Pakatan's support, comes from non-Chinese voters. In addition, Pakatan won more votes and seats in the Malay majority states of Perlis, Terengganu and Pahang. PAS won an additional 7 state seats in Selangor, all of which are in Malay majority areas. In Sabah and Sarawak, BN's share of the popular vote fell by 6.6% and 5.3% respectively.

11. The facts are very clear. I am confident that further analysis of the results will show that while the Chinese support for Pakatan did increase, it cannot be denied that many other communities also increased their support for Pakatan compared to 2008.

12. Secondly, we have to continue to fight for electoral reform through all available channels. This includes filing election petitions in seats which we lost narrowly and where we have strong proof of electoral irregularities including massive vote buying, Form 14 not being given to counting agents, reports of 'foreigners' voting and so on. This includes using our enhanced voice in parliament to push for wholesale changes in the Election Commission. This includes forcing the BN to cooperate with us to ensure that the upcoming re-delineation exercise is one that respects the 'one-man, one-vote, one-value' principle. This includes holding public forums and rallies to maintain or even increase support for electoral reform.

13. Thirdly, we have to continue to remain united in the midst of internal and external challenges. No doubt the BN will try to 'buy-off' some of our MPs and ADUNs in order to weaken us but this time, with better candidate selection and greater internal discipline and resolve, we believe that this is not likely to happen. There will also be pressure from within some coalition parties to deviate from the path of Middle Malaysia. But with a committed Pakatan Rakyat national leadership holding firm to our principles, as published in our Manifesto, we will remain united. The fact that the DAP was willing to use the PAS logo in Peninsular Malaysia and the PKR logo in Sabah and Sarawak is great testimony of the trust and cooperation between the three coalition partners.

14. Fourthly, we must convince more voters that the time for the politics of fear, division and intimidation are over and that we must move forward embracing the politics of hope. The Malaysian electorate, especially in the urban areas, have shown that they will not succumb to the fear mongering tactics of MCA and UMNO. One spent millions on advertisement saying that a vote for DAP is a vote for PAS and a vote for an Islamic state. The other used its propaganda machine including TV3 and Utusan Malaysia to say that a vote for DAP is a vote to dismantle Malay rights. Both tactics failed miserably in the urban areas. Our challenge is to make sure that Pakatan's politics of hope is brought into the rural areas, especially in places where Pakatan has yet to establish its presence on the ground. DAP is already doing this in Sarawak, using our urban bases in Kuching, Sibu, Miri and Bintulu to go into new territory in the Dayak areas in the interior.

15. Fifthly, we need to capture the hearts and minds of the younger generation so that they can be our agents for change in the next general election. Already, we have seen an unprecedented level of interest in the politics of the country among younger voters. The lines for the youngest polling streams or 'salurans' were the longest, a clear demonstration that the young and newly registered voters are very interested in the political process. We need to leverage on thesavvy of our younger MPs and ADUNs, especially those who are strong users of social media, to galvanize the youth vote. Many of them were disappointed after the results were announced. It is of paramount importance that we do not let them lose hope but instead incorporate them into the movement for change in this country, whether it is through political parties or NGOs. This means that we must remain ahead of the curve and ahead of the BN in using social media to engage with and win the hearts and minds of these younger voters.

16. Many of the future leaders among the younger generation can be found in our public and private universities. And many of them are likely supporters of Pakatan and our politics of hope. What gives me the confidence to make this claim? In GE13, Pakatan won with big majorities in many seats universities in them including LembahPantai (UM), Serdang (UKM), Puchong (UPM), Bayan Baru (USM), Shah Alam (UiTM) andKelana Jaya (many private colleges) just to name a few.Initial polling streams or 'saluran' analysis also shows that the younger generation of voters support Pakatan at higher rates compared to their parents. I am sure that I can extend my claim to students here in London and also in the UK. I won't ask you who you voted for since some of you may be on government scholarships but I am sure that if I were to take a straw poll now, I think Pakatan would win comfortably in this room, am I right? You too, are among the future leaders of the country and I urge you to seriously consider going back to Malaysia to help in the nation building process. It doesn't necessarily have to be politics. As long as you speak the truth, do the right thing and fight against injustice in any organization which you work for, Malaysia would move a step closer changing for the better.

17. Sixthly, we must find new ways of engaging with Malaysians overseas. The record number of Malaysians who returned home from all corners of the globe is testament to the fact that although they are not in Malaysia, it doesn't mean that they have forgotten Malaysia. GE13 awakened a spark in many a Malaysian working and living abroad and this is the kind of spirit which we must continue to nurture and pursue. We must not let these voters lose hope. We must continue to engage them, to ask them to lend their expertise to the nation building process, to ask them to invest their time, resources and energy back in Malaysia. And if they want to do this in Penang, our doors are always open, 24/7, 365 days a year.

18. Seventh, we must accept the challenge to govern the states of Penang and Selangor even better to show that our first term was no fluke. We must do this despite the obstacles which the BN federal government will put in our way. We continue to prove that by delivering results, not only will our support in both states increase in the next election but that it will convince voters in other states that Pakatan Rakyat is more than ready to take over Putrajaya and to deliver Malaysia to a new era of justice, equity and progress for all. This includes increasing our state revenues by running a clean and transparent government so that these can be channelled back to the people through social programs and infrastructure improvement and improvements in state and local services. This includes finding new and creative channels to fund our bigger infrastructure projects. This includes running a smart government in order to deliver a bigger bang for every ringgit that is spent.

19. Eightly and lastly,we must remain resilientthroughout all the trials and tribulations which will come our way. GE13 and its aftermath have shown that the BN will never change its tactics. It will continue to rely on the only weapons it knows how in order to maintain its hold on power – money, a biased media, repressive laws, non-independent institutions. Our resolve must be strengthened when we face the onslaught, especially when we know that the BN knows that it is in its last days of power.

20. The recent Sedition Act dragnet has indeed left a black eye in the democratic process in Malaysia. In the last 48 hours, the police have so far arrested student leader Adam Adli, Anything But Umno (ABU) leader Haris Ibrahim, PKR vice-president Tian Chua and PAS' Thamrin Ghaffar. They were finally released after the courts refused to grant the police a 5-day remand period. Next to be charged will be DAP MP for Ipoh Timur Thomas Su. The police have also not ruled out further arrest. This reflects as if Malaysia has yet to achieve independence and these differing voices will not tolerated. These voices now face the reality of being thrown into jail. Also the existing draconian laws that should have been abolished are still enforced by the current government to snuff out the rakyat's differing voices. Clearly, Najib government’s so called transformation plan remains a watershed failure and has not received the support of the majority.

21. Many who have gone before us have fought the good fight all their lives but fail to see the BN being denied a two thirds majority, not just once but twice in successive elections. Many among the ranks of the current Pakatan leadership and the rank and file members have fought the good fight for many decades, often without having envisioned a reality when the BN can be replaced as the federal government. Now that this objective is within reach, we must acknowledge and understand the long road which took us this far. And then we must focus on the difficult road ahead.

22. Let me end by referring to the motto of the London School of Economics: "RerumCognoscereCausas' – 'To Learn the Causes of Things'. This is your approach in seeking out knowledge and insight and for expanding your academic horizons in the social sciences. In Malaysia, many have awakened to the reality that the lack of an even playing field and an open democratic space are the reasons why we have failed to reach our potential as a country. The result was that a majority of Malaysians voted to have a changed in government. Pakatan's challenge will be to honour the votes of these Malaysians by accepting and embracing the upcoming challenges of preparing Pakatan Rakyat to be the next federal government within the next five years.

Rafizi : Kertas Undi Lebih Daripada Jumlah Sebenar

Posted: 24 May 2013 02:30 AM PDT

PETALING JAYA 24 MEI : Pakatan Rakyat (PR) mendedahkan penipuan yang berlaku dalam Pilihan Raya Umum Ke 13 (PRU13) lalu dengan dakwaan undi melebihi kertas undi dikeluarkan dalam peti undi sepertimana terjadi di kawasan Parlimen Balik Pulau di Pulau Pinang.

Pengarah Strategi PKR, Rafizi Ramli mendakwa bagi pengundian di saluran 2 di SRJK(C) Yu Chye tercatat perbezaan jumlah kertas undi yang berada di dalam peti undi selepas pengundian dijalankan.

"Borang 13 iaitu Penyata Kertas Undi bagi Parlimen Balik Pulau menunjukkan sebanyak 424 kertas undi dikeluarkan.

"Selepas pengiraan dibuat dan keputusan dipindahkan  ke Borang 14 iaitu penyata pengundian selepas pengiraan undi, keputusan menunjukkan terdapat 562 undi di dalam peti undi iaitu 138 undi melebihi daripada jumlah kertas undi yang dikeluarkan," katanya dalam sidang media di sini hari ini.

Ahli Parlimen Pandan itu berkata, jumlah undi di dalam peti undi yang lebih menyeleweng keputusan bagi parlimen dan DUN di antara 138 hingga 318 undi.

Katanya, dengan majoriti yang rendah dan undi rosak yang tinggi, keputusan di saluran 2 itu sahaja sudah cukup untuk mengubah keputusan bagi peringkat Parlimen Balik Pulau dan DUN Telok Bahang.

"Kejadian ini membuktikan bahawa peristiwa undi yang dikira melebihi daripada kertas undi yang mulanya dikeluarkan memang berlaku.

"Ia berlaku di Balik Pulau dan sudah tentu juga berlaku di tempat lain," katanya.

Sementara itu, PR juga mendakwa mempunyai bukti berlaku insiden membeli undi sepertimana di Pulau Pinang dalam PRU13 lalu.

Ahli Parlimen Bayan Baru, Sim Tze Tzin mendakwa wang tunai diberikan kepada pengundi selepas keputusan tidak memihak kepada PR dengan penukaran baucer yang diberikan sebelum itu.

"Ia berlaku di DUN Bayan Lepas,  Pulau Betong dan Tanjung Bungah. Mereka memberi wang secara tunai di tiga tempat iaitu selama tiga hari beroperasi iaitu pada 10, 11 dan 12 Mei lepas.

"Kita telah melakukan pemeriksaan ke tempat itu dan laporan polis telah dibuat mengenainya," ujarnya.

Mahkamah Tolak Permohonan Reman, Tian Chua, Tamrin dan Haris Dibebaskan

Posted: 24 May 2013 02:00 AM PDT

KUALA LUMPUR, 24 Mei — Polis hari ini melepaskan tiga individu yang ditahan untuk siasatan dibawah Akta Hasutan 1948 dan Kanun Keseksaan selepas majistret menolak permohonan untuk melanjutkan reman.

Pakatan Rakyat (PR) semalam menyifatkan penangkapan tersebut sebagai sebahagian tindakan keras polis ke atas pemimpin pembangkang.

Semalam, Ahli Parlimen (MP) Batu PKR Chua Tian Chang, ahli PAS Tamrin Ghafar dan aktivis Haris Ibrahim ditahan kerana menghasut dan di bawa ke balai polis Jinjang untuk disoal siasat dan penahanan, difahamkan penahanan tersebut dilakukan dibawah seksyen 4(1)(c) Akta Hasutan dan seksyen 124 Kanun Keseksaan.
Namun peguam Gobind Singh Deo yang mewakili Haris semalam berkata tidak dimaklumkan tentang "kenyataan menghasut" yang dikatakan dibuat oleh anak guamnya ataupun kedua-dua mereka yang ditahan.

Ketiga-tiga dipercayai ditahan kerana pengelibatan dalam sebuah forum pada 13 Mei terhadap keputusan pilihan raya umum lalu.

Individu pertama yang ditahan akibat forum itu dan didakwa kerana menghasut adalah aktivis mahasiswa, Adam Adli Abdul Halim di kompleks mahkamah Jalan Duta pagi semalam.

Lelaki berumur 24 tahun itu mengaku tidak bersalah dan dibebaskan dengan ikat jamin RM5,000 dan perbicaraannya ditetapkan bermula pada 2 Julai.

"Kami puji majistret yang sangat berani. Seorang hakim yang berani telah mendengar hujah-hujah undang-undang dan membuat keputusan bahawa penahanan kami adalah tanpa asas," kata Chua semasa berjalan keluar daripada lokap dengan peguamnya, beliau merujuk kepada majistret Norashikin Sahat.

"Sebab itu kami dibebaskan tanpa syarat" tambah naib presiden PKR tersebut semasa berjalan keluar, manakala Tamrin dan Haris terlebih dahulu keluar daripada lokap.

Awal hari ini, sekumpulan kecil penyokong telah mengadakan bantahan kecil di luar lokap, melaungkan slogan dan menaikkan sepanduk menggesa pembebasan ketiga-tiga tahanan tersebut.

Namun peguam Gobind Singh Deo yang mewakili Haris semalam berkata tidak dimaklumkan tentang "kenyataan menghasut" yang dikatakan dibuat oleh anak guamnya ataupun kedua-dua mereka yang ditahan.

Ketiga-tiga dipercayai ditahan kerana pengelibatan dalam sebuah forum pada 13 Mei terhadap keputusan pilihan raya umum lalu.

Individu pertama yang ditahan akibat forum itu dan didakwa kerana menghasut adalah aktivis mahasiswa, Adam Adli Abdul Halim di kompleks mahkamah Jalan Duta pagi semalam.

Adam, 24, mengaku tidak bersalah dan dibebaskan dengan ikat jamin RM5,000 dan perbicaraannya ditetapkan bermula pada 2 Julai.

Individu pertama yang ditahan akibat forum itu dan didakwa kerana menghasut adalah aktivis mahasiswa, Adam Adli Abdul Halim di kompleks mahkamah Jalan Duta pagi semalam.

Walaupun ketiga-tiga mereka dibebaskan hari ini, Chua mendakwa mempunyai maklumat akan lebih ramai yang mungkin akan ditangkap selepas ini.

"Dengan hujah yang sama, kami berharap bahawa mahkamah akan mengambil tindakan tegas untuk mempertahankan bukan sahaja hak individu, tetapi juga prinsip-prinsip asas undang-undang," kata Ahli Parlimen Batu itu yang lebih dikenali sebagai Tian Chua.

BN urged to work with ‘majority’ on reforms

Posted: 24 May 2013 10:48 PM PDT


PKR president Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has urged BN to work with the “majority of the rakyat” who supported the opposition to embark on democratic reforms first before calling for national reconciliation.

“As the voice of the majority of rakyat, we continue to demand that the minority BN government to join us in executing the Democratic Restoration Agenda … through political reforms, electoral reforms and parliamentary reforms before offering reconciliation,” she said in her policy speech to the 9th PKR Congress this morning.

NONEPKR, together with allies PAS and DAP under Pakatan Rakyat, had garnered 51 percent of the popular vote but only secured 40 percent of seats in Parliament as compared to the ruling BN coalition which won 47 percent of the popular vote but bagged 60 percent of seats.

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had immediately called for national reconciliation after the election results of May 5 but had since moved to arrest several opposition figures following massive rallies to protest against the polls results, alleging fraud.

Newly-minted Home Minister Zahid Hamidi had said that the “silent majority” were against Pakatan’s protests and argued those who did not agree with the country’s electoral system should emigrate.

NONEHowever, Wan Azizah today reminded that the electoral verdict showed the “majority” of Malaysians was on Pakatan’s side and Zahid’s assertion showed that BN was insincere about national reconciliation.

“Do BN leaders want 51 percent of Malaysians to move to another country?

“Even other countries which use the ‘first past the post’ system, the differences in the number of voters in large and small constituencies are not as great,” she said.

Malaysia’s largest parliamentary constituency of Kapar (144,000 voters) is nine times bigger than the country’s smallest – Putrajaya (16,000 voters).


‘EC leadership must resign’

Wan Azizah also called on the Election Commission’s (EC) leadership to resign for “not ony failing to ensure a clean and fair election but abetting in BN’s criminal cheating”.

She added that even the only one of eight demands of electoral reform group Bersih which the EC implemented, namely the indelible ink, ended up in failure.

She also called for the royal commission of inquiry investigating the illegal granting of citizenship to foreigners which is ongoing in Sabah to also be expanded nationwide.

Wan Azizah said the party remains committed to the Black 505 nationwide rallies to protest the alleged electoral fraud.

She noted the large number of youths present during the rallies, calling them the hope of the future.

“The arrest and prosecution of a youth named Adam Adli recently shows the BN government’s fear towards youths who dared to speak the truthg and oppose electoral fraud,” she said.

The PKR president adds that the 13th general election was a rejection of BN’s politics of race, violence, divide and rule as well as fanatical elements.

She also urged the strengthening of the party’s leadership and machinery going forward.

MOSCOW 25 Mei - Kerajaan Syria telah bersetuju untuk menyertai persidangan keamanan yang diinisiatifkan oleh Amerika Syarikat (AS) dan Rusia.

"Kami menerima pengesahan dari Damsyik bahawa kerajaan Syria pada dasarnya bersedia untuk mengambil bahagian dalam persidangan keamanan ini," kata jurucakap Kementeria Luar, Alexander Lukashevich yang dipetik menerusi agensi berita Interfax.

Washington dan Moscow telah mengumumkan mengenai rancangan itu awal bulan lalu bagi membawa kedua-dua negara itu untuk berunding dan menamatkan konflik yang berterusan selama 26 bulan, di mana Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu (PBB) menganggarkan sekurang-kurangnya 80,000 orang terbunuh dalam konflik berdarah itu. - dpa

KUALA LUMPUR: Ketua Pemuda PAS Pusat Ustaz Nasrudin Hassan memberikan sokongan penuh kepada perhimpunan aman Himpunan Suara Rakyat 505 yang bakal diadakan hari ini.

"Saya menyokong penuh usaha gabungan NGO mengumpulkan kekuatan suara yang padu dari rakyat untuk pemulihan sistem demokrasi selama mana ia diurus secara aman dan baik. Demikian menurut satu laporan yang dipetik dari Harakahdaily organ rasmi PAS.

"Semoga 2505 akan menjadi satu lagi detik bersejarah, menyaksikan kebangkitan rakyat pula didominasi oleh anak muda yang menuntut keadilan dan ketelusan dalam pengurusan serta pengendalian pilihanraya," kata Nasrudin dalam satu kenyataan di Facebooknya.

Ahli Parlimen Temerloh itu berkata 2502 adalah detik pengisytiharan suara anak muda khasnya dan rakyat amnya bagi mengemukakan pelbagai bukti dan saksi umum untuk menolak manipulasi dan membantah penyelewengan serta meluruskan kepincangan pilihanraya dalam sistem demokrasi negara.

"Insyaallah himpunan tersebut akan berlangsung dengan aman. Justeru itu saya mengharapkan semua peserta himpunan tidak terlibat dengan sebarang provokasi. Anak muda hanya mahu menyatakan suara mereka, bahawa perlunya sistem pilihanraya negara diperbaiki dan dipulihkan sebelum ianya runtuh lebih teruk," tegas beliau.

Nasrudin juga menyeru pihak keselamatan untuk membantu tanpa melepaskan sebarang provokasi yang merosakkan tujuan sebenar perhimpunan esok.

"Berilah ruang dan peluang kepada rakyat untuk bersuara dan menyampaikan mesej mereka kepada pihak kerajaan secara aman dan santai," saran beliau.

Pagi tadi, PAS mengumumkan akan bersama rakyat menyertai perhimpunan aman "Suara Rakyat 505" anjuran gabungan NGO di Petaling Jaya esok.

Setiausaha Agung PAS Datuk Mustafa Ali berkata, ianya sebagai menifestasi membantah segala penipuan yang berlaku dalam pilihan raya umum ke-13 (PRU13) lalu.

"PAS akan diwakili Timbalan Presiden Mohamad Sabu dan Naib Presiden Datuk Mahfuz Omar," katanya kepada Harakahdaily.

Mohamad pula menyifatkan Menteri Dalam Negeri Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi sudah panik apabila cuba memberi amaran jangan menghadiri himpunan aman SuaraRakyat 505 esok.

Katanya, Zahid sepatutnya menawarkan diri untuk berdepan dengan rakyat yang mahukan kebebasan bersuara bukannya berselindung di sebalik polis.

"Zahid bukannya hendak berdepan dengan rakyat, sebaliknya berselindung di belakang polis. Dia bukan pemimpin yang berani sebab guna polis," katanya dalam berita itu.

Tiga pemimpin Pakatan, NGO dibebaskan

Ahli Parlimen Batu Tian Chua, bersama dengan Haris Ibrahim dari ABU (Asalkan Bukan Umno) dan ahli PAS, Tamrin Ghafar akan dibebaskan selepas permohonan reman oleh pihak polis ditolak oleh majistret hari ini.

Perkara ini didedahkan oleh peguam Ashok Kandiah, yang berkata, ketiga-tiga mereka dalam proses untuk dibebaskan dari balai polis Jinjang, tempat mereka ditahan sejak ditangkap semalam.

Ketiga-tiga mereka sedang disiasat di bawah Seksyen 4 Akta Hasutan 1948 berikutan penyertaan mereka dalam forum pasca pilihan raya di Dewan Perhimpunan Cina Kuala Lumpur Selangor (KLSCAH) pada 13 Mei.

Mereka ditahan polis petang semalam. Polis kini perlu membuat 
permohonan reman yang baru jika ingin terus menahan mereka.

Ashok memberitahuMalaysiakinibahawa pihak polis memohon tahanan reman selama tujuh hari.

Bagaimanapun, katanya, peguam yang mewakili ketiga-tiga mereka membantah kerana pihak polis tidak menyediakan transkrip ucapan yang didakwa menghasut.

Tambahan pula, katanya, nama Haris dan Tamrin tidak ada dalam laporan maklumat pertama polis dan dengan itu mereka tidak perlu ditahan lagi.

"Kami mendapat tahu bahawa mereka mahu ketiga-tiganya kemungkinan sebagai saksi dan jika demikian, kami berhujah mereka tidak perlu berdepan dengan tahanan reman yang lama.

"Mereka bukannya suspek pembunuhan, dan jika suspek seumpama itu pun, mahkamah tidak membenarkan tempoh tahanan reman yang panjang," katanya.

Ashok berkata, akhirnya, majistret Norashikin Sahat mungkin memutuskan bahawa pihak polis sepatutnya telah melengkapkan siasatan mereka dan permohonan pihak berkuasa itu satu penyalahgunaan kuasa dan proses mahkamah.

Peguam Sivarasa Rasiah, Datuk S Ambiga, N Surendran dan Afiq M Noor mewakili Tian, yang juga naib presiden PKR, manakala Ashok, Pavendeet Singh, John Skelchy dan Adam Haris Ibrahim diwakili.

Tamrin diwakili peguam KA Ramu dan MV Nathan.

Aktivis pelajar Adam Adli Abdul Halim, yang turut menghadiri majlis di KLSCAH itu, telah pun didakwa atas tuduhan menghasut di Mahkamah Sesyen Kuala Lumpur semalam, selepas ditahan reman selama lima hari.

Pengarah Komunikasi PKR, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad (kiri) juga telah 
didakwa di Mahkamah Sesyen Petaling Jaya di bawah Akta Perhimpunan Aman 2012 (APA) minggu lepas kerana membantu menganjurkan perhimpunan pertama pertama Blackout 505 di Stadium Kelana Jaya.

Hari ini, dilaporkan bahawa Ahli Parlimen Ipoh Timor, Thomas Su akan didakwa minggu depan di bawah APA berhubung penganjuran perhimpunan di Ipoh.
