Vote for ‘cleaner’ Selangor, says PKR
Fauwaz Abdul Aziz | Mar 6, 08 5:44pm

PKR Selangor candidates today urged voters to come out in full force on polling day Saturday to issue a ‘no confidence’ vote against the ‘abuses’ of Menteri Besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo.

Citing a litany of scandals pertaining to development projects, perks given to state government officials, former Kelang assemblyperson Zakria Mohd Deros, and the Broga and Ijok incinerator projects, they said a vote for Khir would be a vote to further “weaken the Selangor state”.

“We call on all Selangor voters to choose wisely. A vote for Khir would weaken the Selangor state,”said PKR Selangor deputy chief Yaakob Sapari at a press conference in Petaling Jaya.

al-Fatihah – Salman Nasaruddin March 5, 2008

On Tuesday, my friend, Salman passed away at UH, a victim of a hit-and-run accident in the affluent Section 16.

He was walking back at around 10 pm and when he was hit, it was so loud some of his neighbours heard it, including his sister. She called an ambulance, not reaslising it was her brother who was hit.

I took some time off yesterday to visit his house. Election or no election, he was still my friend.

Salman was a keen photographer and we had been planned a group photo exhibition together. But of  late, he is better known as the person who has been taking those fantastic panoramic photos, on the campaign trail of Anwar Ibrahim.

I was lucky to have caught with him last week and spoke about his work. “We got to sit down after the elections,” I’d said to him.

One of our madcap ideas last year was to go to Janda Baik with a group, stake our tripods and take night photos.  There is said to be a spot filled with an abundance of stars. Now we won’t be able to do it.

This has cast a pall on the remaining days of the election. Many of us were aghast and broken that someone could drive and hit another person, and leave him there to die. I appeal to to anyone who may have witnessed this inhumane crime to let us know the details.

We shall miss you, Salman.

(GE12) BN ups psywar March 5, 2008

Someone made a comment re Chandra Muzaffar – ‘it’s alright if you sell-out, but don’t be made a tool of BN’. One must expect more riff-raffs to come out of the woodwork in these last couple of days of elections.

Anyway, there’s a VDC being distributed to Malay Muslim voters, which tells the story of the conspiracy of Jews and Western powers whose agents are Anwar Ibrahim and all leaders of the Opposition – and issues such as the Interfaith Commission, other Opposition issues and even BERSIH – the coalition for free and fair elections, are in fact part of the *BIG* Jewsih plot.

Get a life, guys.

Among all the politico-celebs, one non-leader stuck out like a sore thumb – ME! (Hahahahahaha!) But I have to thank Umno/SB for promoting me to their ranks and using a nice photo 😀  I must be doing something right re: Inter-faith dialogue, freedom of religion and free, fair elections.

Below is a statement by Dr. Syed Husin Ali:- (more…)

The Election Commission has cancelled the use of indelible ink for this general election, citing public order and security issues. (Malaysiakini, 4 March 2008)

The only conclusion that can be drawn from this stunning announcement is – BN is losing big time and is now desperate to have to resort to even cheaper and dirtier tricks, compared to the 1999 General Elections.

For all of us who marched in Kuala Lumpur seeking free and fair elections, please be prepared to defend our fundamental and constitutional right to free and fair elections.

It’s no longer about denying two-thirds. It is clear there are larger stakes at hand.

Don’t let cheats into the halls of state assemblies and the Parliament.
VOTE FOR CHANGE!
VOTE FOR A CLEAN GOVERNMENT!
