What kind of alternative does Pakatan offer Malaysia? Just look at the fiasco of all three of their party elections.
Imagine if the Election Commission did the same things that PKR, DAP and PAS have done.
Imagine the whole country geared up to go to the polls on 5th May and then all of a sudden the voters are told, ooops sorry lah, please come back tomorrow. Which is exactly what happened with the PAS election which was to have been conducted on Friday (Nov 22) but was postponed to Saturday (Nov 23).
PAS had to delay the election of its central committee members when the ballot papers were found not to be in order. And mind you, the party had a mere 1,086 voting delegates to contend with. In comparison, the EC catered our last general election for 13.3 million voters.
And next, votes on the post of the deputy PAS president took more than one day to count. Where were the ballots kept overnight? Were the ballot boxes secured?
Imagine how the opposition supporters in Lembah Pantai – say if they had voted on Friday – would react if the results were only announced on Saturday, and furthermore these Pakatoons told that Umno had won the seat.
The EC counted 31,008 votes for Nurul Izzah and 29,161 votes for Raja Nong Chik. The PAS election commission only counted 588 votes for Mat Sabu and 490 votes for Nik Amar. So which is more efficient, the EC or the Pakatan parties?
Imagine a scenario parallel to the DAP Arabian Nights fairytale relating to its CEC election held in Dec 2012.
Three weeks after polling day, let’s say that the EC declares that it had made an error due to a technical glitch. What choice expletives would the Pakatoons let fly if the EC – laying the blame on its Excel programming – reversed the result of the Bukit Katil seat and turns around insisting that … err actually, Ali Rustam was the real winner?
Well, that was what the DAP did in propelling Zairil Khir Johari into the last slot (No.20) of its elected central committee 3 weeks later.
Only 1,823 delegates voted in the DAP party election and with that small number, they can’t even count correctly the first time around.
Now going back to the third Pakatan component PKR and its 2010 election, some might remember how Zaid Ibrahim resigned, how Jonson Chong (the party deputy secretary-general) expressed his dissatisfaction with the conduct of the proceedings and how N. Gobalakrishnan (the party MP for Padang Serai) believed that massive cheating took place. “There were 160 complaints on the PKR election process then,” he said.
But the most amazing thing, given how shoddily all three Pakatan parties have carried out their own party elections, is that the opposition can be so thick-skinned in the outlandish accusations that they’ve been throwing at the EC. Not to mention their lack of compunction in tarnishing Malaysia’s image internationally with the wild allegations of Bangladeshi phantom voters.
What is even more amazing is the perpetual hysteria of their rabid supporters who can believe every outrageous lie that is spewed by their Dear Leaders.
It is too easy to fitnah. Pakatan and their followers do this all the time. They are nothing but malicious rumour-mongers and vile slanderers.
And it is just as easy to criticize the opponent. It is the Pakatan bread-and-butter to daily criticize.
Pakatan politicians and their lynch mob have no qualms in simply saying anything or making false allegations on just about everything. But when they are in a position to do something, they’re not only unable to do any better but they fare much, much worse.
Cakap satu macam, bikin lain-lain pula. Really, what kind of people are they?!
With these pendusta tegar, the perpatah Melayu ‘Siakap senohong gelama ikan duri; bercakap bohong lama-lama mencuri’ truly applies.
So please lah DAP, don’t give us that sloganeering about “integrity”, “ethics” and sell us the snake oil that Pakatan will get rid of corruption.
It’s high time that the pro-establishment people wake up from their selamba, buck up and take to the battlefield. No more allowing the Dapsters and the evangelistas asyik pijak kepala. Melayu takde maruah ke?
