A message to Permatang Pauh voters

Tomorrow is the D Day for The mother of all by elections , the Permatang Pauh Parlaimentary seat contest.

I hope that all parties should follow the rules, be fair and impartial to all the voters. I also hope that there would be no vote buying – not even giving ang pow to old people, like a lady minister is reported to be doing.

Most important of all, the voters of Permatang Pauh must come out in full force to vote. Employers must allow time off for their employees to votes. Those self employed should think of the big picture and take time off from their businesses to vote. Their votes will determine whether Malaysia will go back to its old way, or towards a better future for our children.

Voting is their constitutional right. It is up to voters to choose whoever they think can represent them effectively in Parliament. Every vote is important.

The March 8 election has given many Malaysians a glimmer of hope that perhaps the dawning of a 2 party system will bring about positive changes – better governance, lesser abuses and corruption, lesser emphasis on racial politics.

 I will quote from my article ” a square peg in a round hole- gerakan and Permatang Pauh” :

in the eyes of many Malaysians, the fight in Permatang Pauh is no longer about Anwar and Umno. It is no longer about Anwar the person, but about what he represents: A hope that finally raced-based policies can be done away with; a hope that there would be a better check and balance, the lack of which has been the main reasons why corruption and abuses have become so rampant; a hope that society would become more open, racial polarisation would be less and there would be more accountability and transparency.

It has become the fight for the survival of the still fragile two-party system. Many in civil society believe that everything must be done to nurture it so it will grow stronger and can play the role of an effective watchdog and be a counterbalance to the BN.

Anwar may not be able to deliver all these. But at least he gives us hope that he could help bring about  these changes. For those of you who wish to pursue this hope and nurture the budding 2 party system, you have no choice but to vote for Anwar. For those who want status quo, who think that abuses and corruption and manipulations are acceptable, please continue to vote BN. The choice is yours. THE CHOICE IS CLEAR.

Let democracy prevail. For those of us outside the area, let u hope that our brothers and sisters in Permatang Pauh will make the right choice and send the right person to Parliament.

A reader, Fadzli Sharip,  has so kindly translated the article. I will post the translation here to reach more voters:  (Thank you Fadzli)

(It’s a good comment. Let me loosely translate it to Malay for better reach. Sorry if any content is lost. Fadzli)

“Esok adalah hari penentuan, pilihanraya kecil yang TERBESAR, pilihanraya kerusi Parlimen Permatang Pauh.

Saya berharap semua parti akan mengikut peraturan, berlaku adil dan saksama kepada semua pengundi. Saya juga berharap tiada kegiatan beli undi – walaupun memberi ang pau kepada orang tua, sepertimana dilaporkan seorang menteri perempuan buat.

Yang paling penting, pengundi Permatang Pauh mesti keluar beramai-ramai. Majikan mesti memberikan masa dan membenarkan pekerja keluar mengundi. Yang bekerja sendiri juga mesti memikirkan masa depan dan meluangkan masa untuk mengundi. Undian mereka akan menentukan samada Malaysia akan kembali kepada cara lama atau memberikan harapan yang lebih cerah untuk anak-anak kita.

Mengundi adalah hak yang kita dalam perlambagaan. Terpulang kepada pengundi untuk memilih sesiapa yang difikirkan dapat mewakili mereka secara effektif dalam parlimen. Setiap undian itu adalah penting.

Pilihan raya 8 Mac lalu telah memberikan harapan kepada ramai rakyat Malaysia, satu titik permulaan dimana sistem dua parti akan memberikan perubahan baik – pentadbiran yang lebih baik, kurang penyalahgunaan kuasa dan rasuah, dan kurang politik perkauman.

Memetik artikel saya ” a square peg in a round hole- gerakan and Permatang Pauh” :

di mata ramai rakyat Malaysia, pertandingan
di Permatang Pauh bukan lagi mengenai Anwar dan UMNO. Bukan mengenai Anwar secara peribadi, tetapi apa yang diwakilinya: Suatu harapan dimana akhirnya politik perkauman tiada lagi; harapan dimana penilaian & pertimbangan yang lebih baik dalam kerajaan, dimana ketiadaannya telah menyebabkan rasuah dan penyalahgunaan kuasa telah menjadi-jadi; harapan agar masyarakat akan menjadi lebih terbuka, kurang perbezaan antara kaum dan kerajaan yang lebih bertanggungjawab dan telus.

Pilihanraya ini telah menjadi penentu wujudnya sistem dua parti yang sangat rapuh. Masyarakat maju percaya yang usaha harus dibuat untuk menyemai nya (sistem dua parti) agar ia akan tumbuh dengan lebih baik di mana ia menjaga keberkesanan dan menjadi pengimbang kepada BN.

Anwar mungkin tidak mampu untuk semuanya ini.
Sekurang-kurangnya dia memberikan harapan agar keadaan akan berubah. Jadi, bagi mereka yang mempunyai harapan yang sama dan menjada sistem dua parti, tiada pilihan kecuali mengundi Anwar. Bagi yang tidak mahukan perubahan, menerima rasuah dan penyalahgunaan kuasa dan manipulasi, undilah BN. Kuasa ditangan anda. PILIHAN DISINI JELAS.

Diharapkan demakrasi berterusan. Bagi yang diluar kawasan, marilah kita berdoa agar saudara kita di Permatang Pauh membuat pilihan yang betul dan menghantar calon yang betul ke parlimen.”

    A defining moment in Malaysian History was achieved when DSAI won the by-election in Permatang Pauh yesterday with a landslide victory over his opponent just 3 days prior to Parliament presenting it’s 2009 Budget (29 August 2008) and 5 days prior to Malaysians celebrating it’s 51st Anniversary of Merdeka (Liberty Day) on 31st August 2008.

    Sit tight for the next episode on 29 August 2008, the preview to 16 September 2008 when Malaysia celebrates “Freedom Day”.

    I mean, come on, Malaysia, at least their politicians, have been breaking limits on stupidity, I’m not sure Anwar could win the elections by a large margin.

    If he claims victory though, the BN propaganda machine will be proven to be useless, and they would have to find other ways to serve the rakyat.

    Even after a very long day for DSAI, he was still very much in his element.

    The air was filled with much hope, that the winds of change will bring a new dawn to our beloved Malaysia.

    Definitely, this is the moment, it is history in the making.

    Politicians can never be trusted. There is a saying that “given the chance, politicians will sell away their own mother”. After GE12, I am witnessing a new breed, mostly young and mostly from the DAP (Jeff Ooi, Tony Pua, Gobind, Teresa, Nie Ching) and PKR (Azmin, Devaraj, Sivarasa). They have rekindled a new hope and I am prepared to give them a chance. In DSAI, I see a man with a good Vision and a timely Mission. I am prepared to trust him with my vote, anytime and anyday. I don’t think I am alone. I sense a deluge and flood of voters from all communities aligning their hopes and dreams for a better Malaysia. The people of PP are no different. I expect DSAI to win with a majority exceeding 30k.

    yh, yes. If it remains inside BN, it will just fade away like PPP. And in the next round, it will be rejected and annihilated .

    If it goes outside , it is also diificult for the party to regain its past glory, let us be frank. But at least by doing so, it can help stregthen those opposed to race politics and corrupt practices annd be truthful to its ideology and conscience.

    I have been asking the party to move out in 2006 so that we could have won big in the last election, sensing that the mood of the people had changed..

    But then our voice are ignored… The leaders were so caught up with being ministers, MPs and Aduns and so no one chose to believe that the political grounds have swifted and that people’s sentiments are against BN, especailly in urban and suburban areas, where Gerakan’s seats are situated.

    What is past is past and we cannot undo the wrong choices that the leaders have taken. The leaders have only themselves to be blamed for leading the party to this stage.

    The situation now, as you have rightly said, is a Hobson’s choice.

    But look at it from another angle. I have stressed many times in this blog that individuals are not important; parties are not important. What is important is what we have all along fought for, a fair and equal society, where race is not so much emphasised, where people are not so much divided by design, and where good govnernace prevails.

    If some other parties can achieve this for us, then why should be still harping on the survuival of the party? As Dr Toh rightly points out, we must put people’s interest above self and party.

    By remaining in BN, we are in fact a hindrance to what we are fighting for, a real irony in fact.

    Besides, by going out of BN, as I see it, we can at least survive as a small party, and we can slowly build up from there.

    Dr Koh should ask himself what is it that make him join politics? Is it for the people? or is it for self only? I believe he is still one of the leaders with an inner conscience, even though the same may not be applied to many of those leaders around him.

    Individuals come and go, and are not that important. Whether he will go down in history as the one leading Gerakan to annihilation should not be too much of a concern. If he is really for the people, I believe history will treat him kindly.

    I am pretty optimistic and confident that DSAI will most definitely win with a landslide majority tomorrow. However, my sympathies are with him in the ensuing battle against the ‘powers-that-be’ who will go to the extreme to prevent him from gaining the necessary power to oust the current ‘power-holders’. But DSAI is both a born fighter and survivor. May he become the new Prime Minister of Malaysia come September 16, 2008. “Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka! REFORMASI!”

    Dr Hsu,

    I just returned from Bukit Mertajam after visiting monsterball with Justin. (I’ll leave that for another day)

    Instead I would like to comment on the polis presence there. They are everywhere! And we were not even in Permatang Pauh.

    We were only on the road on the edge of Permatang Pauh leading to BM. Every road junction had traffic polis and the field force type with machine guns.

    Even in BM, sitting in the Summit Hotel lounge watching the traffic, a polis land rover or lorry would pass by every few minutes with helicopters swooping by once in a while. (we were there from 3.15pm to 6.00pm)

    If this is not intimidation, I do not know what is. Everyone was just going about their business so why the heavy polis presence? needless to say there were long lines of cars clogging up the roads.

    Permatang Pauh must look more like a polis state or war zone rather than a constituency in a democracy!

    One more thing. The reports I’ve been reading of empty BN booths are true. We came across many booths decked out with flags and banners but with no one about.

    On the other hand, the PKR booths had people around and talking and mingling about.

    Also I encountered more cars flying PKR flags than BN flags. In fact I hardly saw any BN flags on cars.

    If all these translates to votes tomorrow, Anwar will be MP for P44 on 27 August 2008.

    I agree with cilipadi here that in a way, we ‘trust no one’ in this world. Infact, we humans are the ones whose minds are the most polluted compare to the environment that we polluted.

    But, we really need to learn to put our trusts on something first, then to see whether we can still continue placing our trusts on this something. We Malaysians were once placed our trusts on Umno and BN and we can see how this turns out to. Just ask ourselves honestly, can we still place our trusts on them? So, if your answer is no, then why no put our trusts on Pakatan Rakyat and Anwar this time around? Afterall, we got nothing to lose, right?

    Today is D-Day in PP. I’m so glad it will finally be over, soon. For, like so many, I’m sick and tired of the way politicians (especially those from BN) go about campaigning the past week or so. They things said and done are just plain sickening. We see money being distributed and words said that went along with it. Videos of the alleged sodomy victim came on air. As if his swearing on the Holy Book was not bad enough, we also witnessed the DPM swearing by the Holy Book. It does not matter whether this act of swearing is justified or appropriate by the rules of the faith. Common sense tells us that one does not need to resort to do this by the Holy Book of whatever faith. It is nothing more than mockery before the public and the world community. But there was no shame on their part when majority of the rakyat try to hide the embarrasment and shame of such acts. We hear all kinds of accusations hurled across the other side. But nothing is said about the national issues that confront the rakyat. Maybe (just maybe) they think majority, if not all, of the voters in PP are senile or stupid to decide on their votes based on such juvenile words and deeds. How wrong! This category seems to be the minority although it may be the norm coming from BN. I’m sad to say that such are my observations. As an ardent BN supporter all my life, I’ve truly become disillusioned. Not just of late before Mar8, but for years since 2005. And I don’t need to elaborate what makes me abandon my support for BN. I thought Mar8 would have taught BN a thing or two. But again BN has let me down. Deeds and words have since gotten worse, not any better from the lesson learnt. For they have not really learnt their lesson. Self denial and arrogance have got into their blood. No I would say this has become the BN culture. Without taking the right course of remedial actions do I think there is any way out? Certainly not. There’s only one, and only one, way that BN can go. Soon to become history.

    True Malaysian….I will not pay too much attention to ktemoc….a braggart blogger… welknown to contradicts himself.
    Few months back…so many bloggers were scolding him for something….he posted..which I cannot be bothered to know why….but a steam of bloggers and commentators were after him.
    That was not the first time..he got such response..whenever he put out a smart two-timer type of message.
    Yes….he is a two timer……cannot be trusted.
    kitemoc….thinks too highly of himself.
    Doc is a gentleman….to agree and disagree with him.
    By putting putting a post in his blog on Doc’s message….and make his disagreeing comments there….shows what a friend he can be.
    Why can’t to put it here…and do his comments here?
    Why must be in his blog…on something Doc wrote…..to disagree wit Doc there?
    He once call be…”a son……listen to daddy”.
    This young fut…have no manners.
    No bloggers like or respect him…except Susan Loone and ever gentlemanly friendly ..Doc.

    Doc….Thanks for waking me upon a much needed sleep for such great news on Anwar winning the election.
    No need for me to influence others.
    All have their smart minds to back Anwar up.
