Political parties are often not allowed registration unless they are pro-BN. So the latest party that fell foul of the registration process is the Human Rights Party(HRP). The party went to court to compel the Registrar of Society to inform the applicant of the status of application, thereafter ROS announced that the application was rejected. But the reason is never given. Judging from past experiences could there be any reason other than the political ones? If the applicant is a pro-BN party the record is it can be registered in 2 days eg SAPP(formerly a BN component party). Otherwise it would be along wait as experienced by PSM. As of now the ROS has ot approved the coalition of pakatan Rakyat though it is the EC who asked the PR to register to enable it to campaign in its name.

KAJANG, 13 Ogos — Seorang dekan Universiti Malaya hari ini membidas alasan Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) untuk menolak lapan tuntutan Gabungan Pilihan Raya Bersih dan Adil (Bersih 2.0) sambil menyifatkan ia satu keputusan “memalukan.”

Dekan Fakulti Sastera dan Sains Sosial Prof Dr Redzuan Othman berkata tindakan SPR menolak untuk melaksanakan tidak wajar kerana kesemua tuntutan itu boleh dilakukan badan pengurusan pilihan raya itu.

It is a joke that drag on too long: the government of Malaysia cannot differentiate the difference between a peaceful rally and a riot! In their eyes the 2 are the same so both need to be banned. A riot cause damages to property and injuries to people-then ban peaceful rallies. This is the irrational conclusion by Najib and company! Then why they allowed the `million youth rally’ in Putrajaya? Why they had their UMNO assembly every few years-since in their `non-discriminating’ view any gathering of people inevitably and uncontrollably can be turned into a riot by `a few people with bad intention’? They are forcing the country to see things the only way they can see it-the warped, incocnsistent, politicised and self-interested way of seeing things.

Now Najib says offered Bersih ‘stadium in Shah Alam’

The Election Commission is jumping from 1 mistake to another: previously they refused to remove dead voters on account that the dead voters had not provide them with a death certificate produced by the NRD/JPN. However after much criticisms they turned around and want to remove all voters above 90 year old and require them to apply to revive their voter registration if they are still alive and wish to vote. In the previous situation the presence of many dead voters create opportunities for phantom voters; but the latter situation would cause many old voters above 90 to lose their vote as most of them probably found out their voting status terminated on the day of polling only! Why the EC cannot do the right thing to ascertain the status of the voters from police -which issue burial certificate, and the family members of the voters above 90 years old? Compare to Bengladesh which took half a year to renew the entire voters roll of close to 90million voters this effort would appear a walk in the park! But for the integrity of the election why would the EC refuse and turn to making another expected mistake that deny voters of their rights?

Is the above another solid prove that the current EC commissioners are incompetent?

PAS reject Election Commission’s explanation of `technical error’ on the thousands of anomalies in the electoral rolls-but they should consider one exception. Putting the EC under the PM Department is one big technical error! The EC is the sole body entrusted by the Constitution to run elections on a free and fair basis. No other body is given this privilege. So there cannot be any one higher than the EC on discharging this duty-not even the PM department. The PM Dept is headed by a participant to the elections organised by the EC-this make them doubly unsuited to head over the EC. So technically the image of a `election manager’ adopted by the EC is a mammoth technical error. The EC can reclaim it if they want to as their appointment under the Constitution is as powerful as a judge. No one can remove them except with the same procedure as removing a judge, which must involved serious misdemeanor that require a judgement by a panel of Commonwealth judges!

While the red rally was stopped by the organiser the weekly saturday yellow gathering is continuing. PKR’s Batu Lintang Assemblyman See Chee How condemned the stopping of the red rally by the police and the politicians hiding behind the police-who should only do public safety work and not party safety work! The police is so used to it that they hardly feel any problem to switch from their government duty to party duty! But the most important thing is: The public must not let them get away with it. Take every opportunity to remind and rebuke the police who had take leave to moonshine for the party bosses!
