Vote for Hope and Change in the coming general election.



Speech by M Kula Segaran , DAP National Vice Chairman and MP for Ipoh Barat at DAP Dinner organized by DAP Gemenceh , Negeri Sembilan on Friday, September , 2012

   Vote for Hope and Change in the coming general election.   

       The Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib’s recent talk at a Sabah function about number 11, his favorite number, has fueled speculation that the next general election will likely be held in November. I will not be surprised that if next general election is held in November or even on November 11. 

       Pakatan Rakyat  is ready for the next general election which is going to be the most important one in the nation’s electoral history.   But we must be also be prepared for the dirtiest election in the nation’s history as BN , its cyber troopers and media mouthpiece  are  certain to go all out to ensure BN can  hang on to power. 

        In fact, over the last few months, we have already been able to see the dirty tactics employed and false issues spread. . DAP in particular will be the target. There have been and will be intensified attacks to portray DAP as ant Malay, anti Royalty and even anti Islam. 

         DAP was not born only yesterday.  We have been around since 1966. Our records are there for all to see. 

          The lies spread by BN are totally baseless but yet why does BN resort to such dirty tactics? 

Obviously, BN strategists must be admirers of Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister in Nazi Germany who was attributed to the quote “if you repeat a lie often enough, it will be believed”.

          We believe truth can conquer lies and truth will triumph. But we must work hard to debunk BN’s lies and spread PR’s messages of change. 

          BN is still very much superior in terms of 3M, money, machinery and manpower and there are still many Malaysians who don’t have full access to PR’s messages. 

           Hence, Malaysians who have been yearning for change must become agents of change.  Help PR to debunk all the BN lies whether at coffee shops, in the work offices or in the social media. 

          Expose the BN lie that Lit Kit Siang was responsible for the May 13 incident. Kit Siang was in Sabah campaigning for the Independent candidates when May 13 broke out yet the big lie has been spread that Kit Siang was responsible for it. 

         Expose the MCA lie that DAP is helping PAS’s agenda of setting up an Islamic state and implementation of hudud law. 

             PR’s common policies are spelt out in out Buku Jingga. Islamic state and hudud law are not PR’s agenda and policies. 

             Malaysians suffered and waited for more than 50 years to see a political tsunami in the 2008 general election.
              More than 4 years have passed after the last general election and a simple fact remains—BN has not changed and does not deserve another term in office. 

             PR is the hope for Malaysians to bring about a Better Malaysia for All. 

             So come the next general election, let’s go for total change, and vote for hope and change. Vote PR for new Negeri Sembilan and Federal government.
