SPR terus tempang dan cacat / Khir Toyo exposes the Special Branch

(Pimpinan PR, PAStikan Rakyat DAPat KeAdilan!)
(Rakyat, Teruskan Lonjakkan Minda!)

SPR terus tempang dan cacat

Tidak cukup dengan memperkenalkan peraturan yang tidak efektif dan masuk akal, iaitu dengan mensyaratkan waris mana-mana pengundi yang telah meninggal dunia agar menyerahkan salinan sijil mati kepada pihak mereka sebelum nama pengundi tadi dapat dikeluarkan dari daftar pengundi induk, SPR terus bernafsu kali ini mahu mengawasi pula kempen melalui internet!

Tajuk muka depan BERITA HARIAN hari ini:

SPR awasi kempen internet. Tindakan dikenakan jika clon parti politik salah guna lama web, blog, SMS

Menurut laporannya calon dan parti politik yang berkempen menggunakan laman web, blog atau SMS pada pilihan raya akan datang boleh dikenakan tindakan oleh SPR jika mereka didapati melanggar peraturan ditetapkan.

Saya hairan mengapa itu keutamaan SPR? Sedangkan apa yang mereka namakan kaedah konvensional pun tidak nampak keberkesanan pengawasan mereka. Pembolotan dan monopoli media saluran perdana, TV, radio dan akhbar oleh BN pada pilihanraya umum lalu terlepas pandangan begitu sahaja. SPR tidak pula nampak penting untuk pastikan yang liputan seimbang diberikan kepada semua pihak yang bertanding. Tidakkah liputan berat sebelah sebagaimana berlaku dalam PRU lalu dan semua yang sebelumnya mencerminkan ketempangan dan kecacatan demokrasi dalam negara kita yang sepatutnya diawasi SPR!

Kalau media kita seimbang, tidak ada siapa yang akan cenderung kepada media alternatif, masalahnya media arus perdana kita digunakan sepenuhnya oleh BN, dibolot, diratah, dimamah bawah dagu SPR, tetapi SPR tidak berbuat apa-apa, tiba-tiba hari ini mereka mahu mengawasi kempen diinternet.

Begitulah SPR kita.





Cakap Tak Serupa Bikin

Khir Toyo exposes the Special Branch

Khir Toyo revealed in an exclusive interview with Malaysiakini that the Special Branch officers were used to provide informations regarding voters to facilitate the Barisan Nasional and Umno to gauge the voters sentiments prior to the March 08 general election.

[quote]
"Perhaps the reports given to the leadership came from only one party, for example, the Special Branch officers. These officers are often Malays and can only provide information regarding Malay voters and not the other races. So it’s hard for us to get real information. If you look at the March 8 results in Selangor, the swing was 35 percent, of which 30 percent was caused by Chinese voters. The swing from Malays was only 5 percent." [unquote]

Source: Khir Toyo: Umno has lost touch with reality

Now we should know why the police do not have time to investigate Sharlinie's kidnap case as the police force have many other duties imposed by the Barisan Nasional & Umno leaders other than to their normal tasks and duties to tackle crimes and maintain peace and order.

Some notable revelations by Khir Toyo:

"Political parties must become the voice of the rakyat, not the government.. . (but) politicians responded on behalf of the government (on issues) like the (increased) price of fuel and basic goods, saying that the government can’t do much about it. They began showing formulae used to calculate the prices when all the people wanted was for political parties to listen to them and address their problems.

"We have to become the voice of the people but it’s the other way around now. I hope that Umno Youth especially can become the voice of the people now."

“I started getting negative feelings when (former Finance Minister and Umno treasurer) Daim Zainuddin said five states would fall to the opposition. As Selangor Umno chief, I couldn’t say it out loud as it would have dampened the spirits of party members,” he said.

Umno does not form the government - the BN does. Umno members must represent the will of the people and must press the government to safeguard the interests of the people.

As leaders we have to admit our mistakes and change things. When I concede mistakes, I try to change and I hope that others will follow suit.

We need to start. We must. In fact I was thinking, the separation between the party and the government must be clear. To me, the party president should concentrate on consolidating the party, as is done in India.

Excerpts of the interview

Q: What about the so-called ‘cyber-war’ between you and Muhammad Muhd Taib?

Khir: I wouldn’t describe it as a cyber-war. As an Umno supreme council member and a blogger, I vowed in my first posting that I would tell the truth and I have been trained to tell the truth. Even though the truth is painful, I have no qualms about telling it. Even the Umno president has told all party members to tell the truth and that is what I am doing.

Q:What is the reaction in Umno? You are among leaders deemed to be vocal and consistent with your views...

Khir: There are pros and cons to (being labelled as such), but I only wish to tell the truth..

Q: What truth are you talking about? Are you talking about transition of power?

Khir: If that is what Umno members, bloggers and the rakyat want, we must express it and it is up to the leadership to decide how to react to it. Don’t let things come to a point where the rakyat say that we are not delivering the right information. This is possibly one reason why Umno was defeated so badly in the March 8 polls. To me, truth is important.

Q: So what is the problem? Why is it that the party top leadership did not get the right information? It was impossible for Umno to predict the election outcome. You managed to identify eight hot seats in Selangor and MCA disagreed with you.

Perhaps the reports given to the leadership came from only one party, for example, the Special Branch officers.

These officers are often Malays and can only provide information regarding Malay voters and not the other races. So it’s hard for us to get real information.

If you look at the March 8 results in Selangor, the swing was 35 percent, of which 30 percent was caused by Chinese voters. The swing from Malays was only 5 percent.
