Time to go for total change at the next general election.

Speech by M Kula Segaran, DAP National Vice Chairman and MP for Ipoh Barat at Ceramah held in Kuala Kangsar on Saturday, February 16, 2013

Time to go for total change at the next general election.

Realising that the prevalent mood for change is still growing and gathering momentum, BN leaders have recently been warning Malaysians voters about the dangers and risks of change.

MCA President Datuk Chua Soi Lek is one of the most outspoken ones warning Chinese voters against experimenting with change in the next general election.

His line is that PAS is the big brother in Pakatan Rakyat and that if PR comes to power, there will be hudud laws and Islamic policies which will affect the rights of the non Muslims.

Former Premier Tun Mahathir has also been giving the warning that 5 years in the hands of PR will mean many things can be destroyed.

I see a good sign out of BN  leaders” line of attack – that they actually acknowledge the prediction that PR has the possibility and potential to take federal power at the next general election.

Before the occurrence of the famous 308 political tsunami, no serious political analyst would have predicted that BN could even lose its two thirds parliamentary majority.

Now there are many analysts and voters who think that total change is possible or coming at the next general election.

I strongly believe that change is possible and coming because political tsunami can take place.

Chua Soi Lek and Mahathir can continue to play the tactic of fear, but I am confident that such tact, just like the cash handout politics will not have much impact if the people are determined to change.

I am sure BN leaders; especially MCA will intensify the fear factor as election date draws nearer.
Chua Soi Lek will shout Stability above Chaos.

The Chinese will be told that there could be racial riots; their businesses will be affected etc.

But the 2008 general election result and subsequent political development have certainly proven that political change will not bring chaos.

On the contrary, the political tsunami has altered the political landscape in the country and brought betterment to the people.

Now BN has  to work real hard in order to regain the people’s support.

There is no doubt that the Prime Minister has implemented various measures and policies to try to regain voter support.

But whatever that have been implemented and done by Najib administration are still too little. 

Corruption remains rampant, and national debt continues to rise.

There are more examples I can cite whether economy, social or education issues which BN government has not done enough.

Suffice to say that BN is not a government that can be relied upon to bring about sufficient and meaningful changes that can make Malaysia a better place for all.

In fact, BN which has ruled this nation for 55 years has done much ruin.

It is time that Malaysians must not allow BN to cause more ruins.

Come the next general election, Malaysians must rise to the occasion and vote PR to bring about a total change.

Let there be a new beginning for Malaysia and Malaysians at the next general election.


  1. Yes yes we welcome you pakatan. No no no to BN

  2. BN is still giveing empty promise still but we don't new you BN we cannot be listening to all the empty talk and promise of BN.

  3. If we don't change now, BN will cause worse long-term damage to the country. If we don't have the courage to change now, our children and grandchildren will pay the price in the future for our cowardness. For their sake, we must endure the troubles and pain now. If we don't act now, Malaysia may be torn apart by racism and corruption. The where will our future generations be?

  4. BN need to work hard to give more empty promises. we don't need you BN it is your time to go we need a new and clean goverment.
