“If they will show me evidence that the commission has rigged elections, then I will – in fact, all members of the commission – will resign.” (Source: The Star)

But it must be proven in court, according to the Election Commission’s chief, Abdul Rashid. Good call. He must thank his lucky stars for patriots the likes of Lingam and Fairuz.

BERSIH refutes below. Will Rashid now start drafting his resignation letter?

Smoothriver (below) now lives and works in Shantao University (China), with JerryWho. They’ll be having their own Yellow Power party going on Saturday.

There will be solidarity protests from London to Ulan Bator on Saturday too!

If you’re far from Kuala Lumpur, you can still join in solidarity, via your blogs, websites, or wearing yellow or hanging yellow ribbons on your cars. Just remember to take pics (and pingback here) 🙂

(Updated: 12:00pm) I just found out from a journalist that there is a total blackout of BERSIH news. So please log on to Malaysiakini, Harakahdaily or Malaysia-Today.

(Updated: 11:15 am) I received a call, just as I was leaving for Angkasapuri.

“Ms Wong, do you by any chance have anything to do with the Saturday protest?”

“Er… Suaram is one of the 70 NGOs co-organising it.”

To cut a short conversation even shorter, I was informed that my name is on a blacklist in relation to Saturday’s peaceful gathering for free and fair elections, and thus banned from all RTM stations. The programme staffer was rather apologetic, to have received the instruction that late, but I had to burst out laughing :P.
