Rebuttal: Abdullah Badawi was fair


Abdullah: The other story:
Even at his lowest point, he played fair

"Finally, to all intents and purposes the elections were conducted in a fair and clean manner. The phantom voters that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim"

Hey where do you get your news from? I just participated in a roundtable on Independent candidates, and in preparation, I did some research and had 5 pages detailing the postal votes fraud (to show the Independents the unlevel field that non-Barisan parties including Independents have to play in and why they should cooperate"

Hey, where do you get your news from? Are you also part of the hated main stream media? Don't you do some research before you publish your story?

Yes, in some ways Abdullah Badawi was fair, but only in a very tiny way. I took part in a roundtable on "Independent Candidates" and did my homework. I had 5 pages of reports on postal votes fraud. This was to show the highly unlevel field the non-BN parties including the Independents had to "play" in, and to try to persuade to work with other non-BN parties in the next general election to cooperate to avoid splitting precious votes. Maybe I will summarize in another post on this postal vote fraud in another post.

I myself have stories to tell after acting as polling and counting agent for the 12th General Election, but want to get the legal implication of the "Akta Kesalahan Pilihan Raya 1954" Borang A (Borang Sumpah Kerahsiaan: we had to sign in order to be allowed into the polling and counting centers.

Fair? Dream on. Hopefully next election if BERSIH and other initiatives succeed to help clean up the hugely biased Malaysian election process.
