Ambiga and the Bersih team have sent a message to all Malaysians after she was forced to cancel her speaking engagement in Merlimau following reports that it could be harassed or disrupted.
The concerns were not unfounded. A mob reportedly pelted two DAP state assembly person and their supporters as they were leaving the event organised by the Malacca Pas Supporters Club. The entrance to the event had been blocked by a group of 200 red-shirted people.
We are seeing the same kind of disturbing fascist behaviour rearing its ugly head again.
And what does the “reformist” Prime Minister have to say about this kind of hooliganism by such mobs?
Ambiga says she only wants to speak about clean and fair elections and she cannot understand why anyone would have a problem with that.
As part of the Jom 100 campaign, she, Pak Samad and the Bersih team are calling for a 100 per cent voter turnout to overcome any possible attempt to cheat at the polls or to intimidate voters through violence and hooliganism: “Keluar mengundi, lawan penipuan!”
