An early ‘tsunami’ as online petition draws over 120,000 responses

So polling day on 9 May, a Wednesday, will be a public holiday, the government has announced.

Did this have anything to do with the overwhelming response to an online petition on change.org, which drew 123,972 signatories. This must be something of a record for an online petition relating to Malaysia, where a response of 10,000 would be considered good, 20,000 excellent and 30,000 outstanding.

Now, who says online petitions have no impact? Full article on Aliran website

There definitely at least a Malay wave. The crowd Mahathir gets is bigger each day. PH ceramahs in Malay heartland even PAS area is very significant. But are they at the 35% Malay votes they need? I do not think so.

Has the Registrar of Societies (ROS) illegally allowed Umno to postpone its party elections, which were due yesterday, meaning that the party is illegal as of today?

The ROS may not have such power, whether under the Umno constitution or the Societies Act, to grant such an extension.

MENGAPA KITA LAWAN NAJIB, BN

https://www.liewchintong.com/2018/04/18/mengapa-kita-lawan-najib-bn/

Apabila ekonomi Malaysia muram, rakyat terpaksa berhijrah mencari kerja. Dalam masa tidak sampai lima tahun kebelakangan ini, jumlah rakyat Malaysia yang setiap hari berulang-alik ke Singapura melalui Tambak Johor meningkat daripada 200,000 kepada 300,000. Kebanyakan mereka terpaksa bekerja di sektor sukar, kotor, dan bahaya yang bergaji rendah.

In an interview with AFP, Mahathir warned the vote would be the “dirtiest” seen in Malaysia. The opposition has been angered by what they claim is gerrymandering and attacks on them by the government.

“In the history of Malaysian elections, we don’t have this kind of manipulation,” said Mahathir, who would be the world’s oldest premier if he won.

“Of course the opposition invariably complains about the election but this time around it is so obvious that even members of the governing party … are very unhappy.”

Former minister Rafidah Aziz has asked the Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) to clarify if it had known about caretaker prime minister Najib Razak’s infamous RM2.6 billion donation, and how the department had dealt with it.

In an open letter to LHDN today on her Facebook, the veteran Umno member said she had once been asked about the alleged donation from the Arabs, and if the prime minister had ever been taxed on the amount that had been deposited into his private bank accounts.

Malaysian regulators will look into the activity of automated accounts on Twitter, known as bots, in the run-up to a general election if they get complaints about them.

Reuters reported on Friday (April 20) that bots were flooding Twitter with tens of thousands of pro-government and anti-opposition messages, just weeks before Malaysia’s May 9 election.

The information technology bureau of Umno, said it was not behind the bots and it did not know who was.

Power tussle in seat allocation in PKR may derail Harapan in Selangor?

Pakatan Harapan will call for another round of redelineation if it forms the government, says DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng.

He said this was to ensure that the principle of “one person, one vote” is upheld.

“We have to do a redelineation so that we can have one person, one vote, one value,” he said.

The EC or I should say the government in power are plainly not using their brain by having an election on a working day which besides having to deal with taking leaves (before holiday announcement) they have to deal with availability of schools for the venue. I guess in their pursuit of attempts to reduce voting these facts do not cross their simple minds.

DAP strategist Liew Chin Tong has described Umno as the “real architect” behind the impending “elimination” of MCA. Liew said that at present, Umno and MCA were still squabbling over seat allocations, unlike Pakatan Harapan which has already completed their process nationwide. Moreover, the redrawing of electoral boundaries had also made it more difficult for MCA to win in elections, he said. “It is clear that Umno is the real architect behind the elimination of MCA. MCA members should realise by now who their real enemies are,” said Liew in a statement today. Liew was responding to recent claims by… Read more »

MAKE MALAYSIA GREAT AGAIN Once again the citizens have to decide who govern our nation for the next 5 years. I spoke to a respected senior and he came up with some questions to help us make this important decision. 1. Has the past government lifted the country to greater height or brought us shame? 2. Have your living standard improved or gone down? 3. Is the government transparent in its administration? 4. Is there righteousness in Leadership or Arrogance? 5. Is there separation of power? Does justice flow like an everlasting stream? These are important things for a nation… Read more »
