The Spin Doctors Are At Work!

Actually, that should just read "The Spin Doctor" - who else but the honorable Dr. Mahathir himself. Take a look at this scenario: The huge BN machinery has just been thoroughly whacked by a rag tag combination of People's Power. And in the aftermath of the battle, when the wounded are most vulnerable, the vultures gather. The good doctor then prescribes his medicine: "Badawi should go", "He has destroyed UMNO", "He has destroyed BN". Excuse me?

One man alone doesn't spoil the soup, dear Dr. What about the likes of Nazri - (btw: just where is he?!), who single handedly managed to give enough ammunition to the people to bomb BN back into oblivion? What about the PM in waiting - who has the Mongolian albatross hanging over his head? What about the AP Queen? What about Mr. "Kerismudin"? And the great KJ?

Ayo, Dr. So you're seeing the BN you helped create crumbling. But, you're prescribing the wrong medicine la....You are not reading the script. The People will decide whom we want. Not you Dr. Not anymore. Najib is your choice but it sure ain't mine! We don't need another hero, we don't WANT another hero. Pak Lah will go, forced or not, like Tunku in 1970, that's for sure. But, first he will fight for his political future. Najib? So what if Najib won by a 20,000 majority? He can be the PM of Pekan for all I care. That's where he belongs. Not Putrajaya.

I wonder why Tun is all for Najib? As you rightly pointed out, Najib has a lot of baggage (and i dont mean Rosmah). Tun, please think straight lah or just shut up. Dont you see that the rakyat has voted for clean and efficient goverment? So what's this about Najib taking over? We dont want Najib,Kerismuddin,KJ,Pidah,Samy,Nazri and the likes. Pak Lah must start with a clean slate. BN has got another 5 years before they are totally wiped out.

presumably that Mahathir feels Najib is the only one who could lead this nation. or maybe there's a unwritten agreement between them. but mahathir must understand that times have changed. najib might indeed become PM. but that doesn't mean he is accepted by the rakyat.

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

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.

guan eng has started the ball rolling by officially discarding the "bumiputra first" policy in penang - that's a first step toward meritocracy. the election process is one of the major areas where reform is needed. latest news is that PKR might appeal the rembau result - because of the staggering change in number of votes cast - a 141 advantage to PKR turns into a 5000 defeat! how's that possible? also news floating around of najib's 26,000 vote win - postal votes?
