Let the Year of Rabbit be the year of political change to bring about a better Malaysia for all

Tuesday, February 15, 2011
I spook at the CNY gathering held at the Pasir Pinji dewan orang ramai at 9pm. The hall was packed.

After having had his honeymoon, Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Taib Mahmud must have found the time to think of the date of dissolving the Sarawak State Assembly.

Speculation is rife that the Sarawak State Assembly will be dissolved soon, even probably this week.

There has been speculation over the last 3 months that the Prime Minister Dato Sri Najib may also dissolve Parliament and call for a snap poll in March or April.

I strongly believe that a snap poll is almost a certainty if BN does well in the Sarawak state election. But Najib will be forced to delay his poll plan if Sarawak BN does not perform well.

But I still believe that any delay will not stretch beyond this year.

PR Perak has set the capturing of the Federal and Perak state governments as our electoral objectives in the coming general election.

We have not set such objectives to want to enjoy the spoils of power, but to bring about a better Malaysia for all.

We want Malaysians to start a new journey with us, a journey where there will be justice, fairness and equality for all.

The people must therefore be prepared to vote for change in the coming general election.Although BN has suffered its worst electoral debacle in the 2008 general election, it has not changed much.

Umno cannot change. MCA and Gerakan are still the same parties whose greatest weakness is being unable to champion for the people.MCA and Gerakan are mere passengers in the BN boat. Worse still, the boat is not moving in the right direction.Malaysians who want a better Malaysia for all must therefore reject BN in the coming general election.

It is undeniable that BN has the might of money, manpower and machinery.

But even an Egyptian dictator who had ruled the nation for 30 years fell at the feet of people power.I call on Malaysians to therefore make the Year of the Rabbit a year of political change to bring about a better Malaysia for all.

Come the next general election; ignore the MCA’s lies that a vote for Rocket or a vote for PR is a vote for an Islamic state.Islamic state is not and will not be PR policy.Reject the BN candidates, whether they are from the arrogant Umno, the useless MCA, Gerakan, MCA, PPP and other BN component parties.

Vote PR candidates and make Malaysia a better Malaysia for all.
