Rally for a clean election: Dataran Merdeka, Saturday 10 Nov 2007 3pm

Rally for a clean election

Place: Dataran Merdeka
Date: 10 Nov 2007 [Sat]
Time: 3pm

The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih) will hold a mass rally at Dataran Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur on Nov 10, Saturday at 3 pm to press for electoral reform. Representatives will be submitting a memorandum to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong at the Palace nearby to seek much needed reform. The memorandum to be submitted to the King will outline both the immediate and long-term reforms needed in the Malaysian election including the adherence of a one-person, one-vote principle. Bersih will be demanding for a thorough clean up of the electoral roll, the abolition of postal voting for military and police personnel and fair access to the mass media for all political parties to the mainstream mass media.

Friends, please join this rally to help right our OUR ELECTION PROCESS. You may read more about it at BERSIH

Many suspicious things have happened. Ipoh Timur had 8,000 over voters transferred to the Constituency suddenly.

3,000 plus new postal voters were added to the Ipoh Timur electoral list, but there are no new army barracks or police stations in the constituency.

We don't know how many more 'Ipoh Timurs' are there?

Who knows how many 'new' voters have suddenly found their way into your constituency?

The Election Commission isn't going to care if they think you don't care enough to get up and do something.

Please join me at the rally as we don't want the next elections to be rigged, and if we just sit at home and do nothing, things will not change.

We can't just leave other fellow Malaysians to take on this struggle to reclaim our democratic rights and do nothing our self. Think of the future of Malaysia. Think of your children, your grandchildren, your great-grandchildren.....

Our oil money is running out and our country cannot continue to squander public funds and still expect to be as prosperous and peaceful as it is now. There will be many people struggling to survive, forced into a corner if our country is not managed properly without the luxury of the oil money cushioning the siphoning off of public funds. What will people do when forced into a corner? We may end up like Myamar (Burma) one day if we are not careful.

Please join us at the rally and help to try to make this country we and our children will to live in. Please don't let Malaysia down.
