WHAT are Bersih’s demands?
For a free and fair elections amid claims that the Election Commission has failed in its duties.
WHO is behind Bersih?
More than 90% of them are OPPOSITION POLITICIANS and their die hard supporters and members. - (The above news article just reaffirms this point)
In 2007, under the failed leadership of Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the Opposition fooled the Home Minister and moved 10,000 odd of the members and supporters onto the streets of Kuala Lumpur in a blatant show of force.
The Nov 07 Bersih Rally was all about showing the numbers, aimed at amplifying the kind of support the Opposition seemingly enjoyed at that time.
BERSIH’s camouflaged their actual agenda well by crying out for electoral reforms and free & fair elections.
If indeed the electoral process or elections were rigged by the BN government, how could the Opposition have wrested control over Kelantan more than 20 years ago?
How could PAS have taken control of Terengganu in 1999 if the electoral process was indeed rigged and the Election Commission was a tool of the BN government as often accused by the Opposition?
If indeed the whole process was corrupt and the Opposition were cheated, hoodwinked and victimised during the elections, how the hell did they manage to win over and form the state governments in Kedah, Penang, Kedah, Perak(for a short while) while maintaining control over Kelantan?
In 2007, under the weak and rudder-less leadership of Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, those behind Bersih even dragged Seri Paduka Baginda Yang Di-Pertuan Agong and Istana Negara into their dirty game.
The KING had to issue a statement to refute Opposition lies that His Royal Highness had sanctioned the illegal Nov 2007 rally.
The Opposition have found an apt chairperson for Bersih in the person of Ambiga Sreenivason.
The former Bar Council president who was recently barred from setting foot in Sarawak for her ‘mulut bacul’.
In 2007, the then weak and rudder-less government under Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his equally ‘smart’ Home Minister allowed the YELLOW Bersih to take to the streets and dirty this country on Nov 10.
Exactly two weeks later on Nov 25, the RED Hindraf did the same thing under a different banner.
The movers behind these two ‘muscle flexing’ rallies are the same people who aimed to show that the Government of that day was incompetent to even stop them.
The Sarawak state government had the guts to bar Ambiga from the state following her unethical calls for the people of Sarawak to take to the streets ‘like in Egypt”.
Would our current Home Minister take the necessary ‘preventive steps’ to put a stop to such blatant abuse of freedom in this country?
If the government is not prepared to grab the bull by its horns, then all organisations – political or otherwise – who are against the Opposition’s antics via the likes of Bersih should make the necessary moves.
Wonder what would it be like if all Barisan Nasional linked NGOs and associations unleash their members and supporters for a similar show of force on the 9th of July on the streets of Kuala Lumpur and Penang…when Bersih is planning for another show of force?
