Unite and kick out BN, Kit Siang tells Malaysian Chinese voters
The DAP parliamentary leader said Malaysians needed to vote the opposition into power as Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN) suffered from an “incorrigible disease of denial complex” in refusing to admit the failures of government and nation-building.
“If more evidence is needed to prove how cut off the Barisan Nasional leadership has become from the aspirations of ordinary Malaysians, one need only refer to the message by the MCA president yesterday calling on the Chinese voters not to ‘experiment’ in the next general election as Barisan Nasional’s leadership has allowed the community to prosper.
“Just as the Malaysian economy has developed in the past few decades despite the misgovernance, corruption and abuses of power of the Umno-BN leadership, the prosperity of the Chinese community had been achieved despite the failings of the Barisan Nasional leadership,” Lim said in a statement.
The Ipoh Timur MP stressed that Malaysians not only had nothing to thank BN for but were entitled to blame the ruling coalition for “lost opportunities” to make the country developed, prosperous, competitive and more united.
“This is why a total change of power in Putrajaya is uppermost in the minds of more and more Malaysians and I call on the Malaysian Chinese to unite and rise as one dragon, together with all other Malaysians, to effect a change of power in Putrajaya in the next general election to begin a new page of history celebrating the greatness of all Malaysians,” he said.
