Najib is at it again: street protest is not the solution! The protests happened because the people had spoken to the Election Commission and the politicians -and they, the ruling parties refused to allow free and fair elections. Then why the dissatisfied people cannot raise their voice in the public? To deny free and fair elections actually run counter to the Constitution and international standards. Only undemocratic and despotic regimes do that-and there are now fewer and fewer such regimes around.There is only so much time to delay a change of regime if the unfair election system is relied on to allow a half-century old regime to hang on to power. Najib’s claim that the Malaysian election is clean shows that he didn’t get it-he was deaf and dumb on the raise voices at the Bersih rally. When electoral improvement didn’t come after the 1st Bersih rally the people booted out 5 state governments under BN. See what else the people may do after no improvements come from this 2nd round of street walk which Najib claim to be `not a solution’!
|Street Demonstrations Not The Answer – Najib|
|LONDON — Najib Tun Razak said street demonstrations are not the answer to grouses against the government as they may well spiral out of control, possibly causing casualties and damage to property.
“If some quarters are still unhappy with the government, let’s square it out when the election comes and let the people decide.
“We’ll present our case, and the opposition will present their case. Let the people decide,” the Malaysian Prime Minister said when addressing a gathering of members of the Malaysian community in the United Kingdom (UK), here Friday night.
The event capped his four-day official visit to the UK at the invitation of British Prime Minister David Cameron.
Najib said: “We don’t need all these (demonstrations). What we want is a Malaysia that’s transformed, a Malaysia that’ll be our pride and joy.
“We want a country that’ll join the ranks of fully developed nations that will stand as a shining example of a successful nation. That’s what we want for Malaysia.”
He continued: “If we’re to err, let’s err on the side of ensuring public order, safety and harmony, because once something goes wrong, it’ll cascade very rapidly, and there’s no telling what will happen because violence begets violence.”
Referring to, among others, gains made by the opposition in the last general election, Najib said there was democracy in Malaysia.
“And elections are clean in Malaysia. If you think that’s not good enough, we’ll do even better — we’ll introduce the biometric system, for example, to ensure no phantom voters,” he added.
