Malaysia – A New Day Dawning

10 May 2018 – As a nation overdue to a change of Government as many around the world having done so, Malaysians showed that such a major change can be done peacefully, without any bloodshed, but at the ballot box.

Malaysia will be a country of great interest to the world on how to remove the longest ruling party in the world (over 60 continuous years) by the will of the people so clearly shown by their votes casted throughout the day yesterday.

Amidst all the shenanigans, gerrymandering, trickeries, obstacles placed before the people to vote, Malaysians made it clear once for all what they wish.

This is democracy at play and the West should study Malaysia carefully.

It was against all expectations where the ruling party has so much at their disposal to thwart the Opposition onslaught with money, audacious promises and threats.

But they didn’t expect how their ex-President, Tun Mahathir, with his team which party was deregistered prior to calling of the election, will have played such a shrewd strategy with all the pillar leaders of Pakatan Harapan and to bring out his old guns at the last week to turn the tide against incumbent Najib.

The more the BN played their influence over the Election Commission and went to the extent of even cutting out his face from billboards, the BN fueled the anger by their treatment of this grand old man of an ex-PM.

This election has seen all the worst side of BN in their desperation to win by even holding back the validation of vote counts.

So, congratulations to Malaysia and to Malaysians. You made the call.

As and when Tun Mahathir is sworn in tomorrow by the deputy Agung, Malaysia will have a brand new chapter and starts with the world looking keenly on her to rise to great heights.

And Malaysians will have high hopes on Tun Mahathir and the new Government to straighten up all the institutions for a great Malaysia.

The mandate has been given.

The people has decided.

Malaysia Boleh!

Closest Official Count, Runaway Unofficial GE14

The excitement builds with the unofficial results revealed ahead of time. It appears to show Pakatan Harapan winning but there are rampant allegations that the KTM will not sign a number of Borang 14 to make official the count. Reports are rife with the Police being called in.

Tun Mahathir along with some PH leaders made a Press Conference stating the allegations.

Officially, most reports show BN and PH neck-to-neck but I am sure our Malaysia Special Branch already know the facts.

How will this pan out over tonight? The people at the various counting centers affected are out to ensure transparency.

Pray for the safety and boldness of the Counting Agents affected to stand their ground for a fair election.

The excitement continues…11:59 p.m.

Malaysia Votes Tomorrow

In about 9 hours, Malaysians will be going out to vote in the 14th General Election (GE14). Many say this might be a historic defining moment that may see Barisan Nasional (BN) become the Opposition Party in Parliament.

This time, Tun Mahathir is leading the charge at 92 of age. He could be enjoying life but has chosen to stand with the Opposition to challenge BN to Putrajaya.

This was never in anyone’s wildest dreams. With Anwar locked away, Tun M was a natural choice. And banding together PKR, Bersatu, DAP and Amanah, and yes, standing under the PKR logo only, Tun M is also making history of sorts.

It is left to be seen if voters for the Opposition can overcome the gerrymandering, the flippant decisions of Election Commission (EC), the incredulous promises made by Najib, the various tricks to prevent a big turnout, Malaysians must come out to vote.

Whatever results that may appear tomorrow should be seen as clean and fair in the eyes of all Malaysians and the world.

Will it be more of Najib’s offers or will it be a fresh and just new government? Even Umno doesn’t believe they can change.

Culture, especially a bad one, cannot be slowly nursed to be good. It must take the shock therapy of serious soul searching and humility, neither is found in Umno.

In light of the constant denials of wrongdoings, there is really nobody who dares to pry into all allegations anymore with Najib having consolidated his powers.

GE14 is about what the people say, if it is at least enough to turn the tide or Najib will have outfoxed his one-time mentor?

Will Malaysians see a new tomorrow or more of the same?

We shall know by early Thursday morning.

So, go vote, fellow Malaysians. Do your duty. Stay safe!
