PKR delegate: Ditch PSC, kick off Bersih 3.0

Aidila Razak

PKR was today urged to stop “wasting time” with the parliamentary select committee (PSC) on electoral reform and to just proceed with a third installment of Bersih to press for firm action.

Debating the president’s policy speech at the PKR congress in Johor, Azmizam Zaman Huri (below) even urged the leadership to call for Bersih 3.0 to be held as early as next month.
“Let’s not entertain the PSC. We know they will not entertain the Bersih demands…this congress believes that the best path to Putrajaya is to jolt BN….by holding Bersih 3.0, do you agree?” he asked the delegates to loud agreement.

“We must hold it next month. Can we?” he asked the excited delegates during his fiery speech.

Pakatan Rakyat has three members on the PSC, including PKR deputy president and Gombak MP Azmin Ali.

Supporting his case, Azmizam claimed he has evidence of migrants naturalised in droves elsewhere and registered in Kota Raja and Hulu Selangor.

“(The BN government) knows that they will go down in the next general election, so they will engage in more cheating. So we need to join Bersih, clean the electoral roll, use indelible ink, demand fair and free access to media, stop corruption and stop dirty politics,” the PKR Youth vice chief said.

‘No reform, no GE’

Azmizam also invited the delegates, who by then were whipped up into a frenzy, to show their support at an event on electoral reform on Dec 4.

“We will gather in the Shah Alam Stadium at 8pm on Dec 4 to send a message to (Prime Minister) Najib (Abdul Razak) and (wife) Rosmah (Mansor) that we do not want an election before Bersih’s eight demands (is fulfilled),” he said.

Earlier during the PKR youth congress on Nov 25, the youth wing deputy chief Khairul Anwar Ahmad Zainuddin in his winding up speech said Bersih 3.0 is tentatively scheduled for next February.

“We support Bersih because we don’t want to enter the battle ring if the ring is not the same size and if the goal posts are shifted,” he said.

The youth wing has also promised street demonstrations if they discover polls are rigged.

Bersih 3.0 is touted to be the follow up – should the government fail to act towards electoral reform – to the Bersih 2.0 mega rally for electoral reform organised by civil society, that saw an estimated turnout of 50,000 in the streets of Kuala Lumpur

  1. I agree with Azmizam’s statement,the PSC are just going thru the motion of a local drama minggu ini,perhaps in it’s 13 episode,those DAP guys in there can argue or suggest all they want but in reality they themselves know that nothing will change,but they reports send over to Parliament will be glowing,since there are some many changes to be made,it will take them another decade to implement so on and so on,to my comrades in wanting a change,just shoved those ideas down the longkang and just march,this is the 1 and only time we have,while the ambers of Bersih 2 is still glowing and those arab springs keeps getting nearer,even the hardcore Juntas of Myanmar realises this,we need younger leaders like Nurul Izzah to command change n I will be the 1st to rejoice and offer my thanks,shukur alhamdulilaah to my Allah,if she becomes the youngest n 1st Women PM of M’sia,our job is to encourage the young ones to come out with guns blazing,for the future is their’s to decide,me,am too old n too weak to march but comfort,encouragement,money n support I will give,for the young ones have no baggages,their generation will help mould M’sia be a better place for them n their children,insha allah

  2. Najib, BN & Taib cheating all the ways to their graves…read on:

    Putrajaya only had 6,008 voters but Opposition-held Kapar had a staggering 112,224 voters, 17 times more than Putrajaya.

    Gerrymandering will halt opposition’s march to power

    Ng C N:‘Kapar can have 17 MPs’ “If we break down Kapar to the size of Putrajaya, you would have 17 MPs from Kapar instead of just one.”

    Irene Kana: ‘ It takes only less than 20% of the total voters to ensure BN has the power to remain corrupt and has the power to plunder the nation.’

  3. Dear PM Najib,

    After all your empty promises and hollow words who can trust you? You are now embarking on a path that is leading to a lesser freedom of assembly and open peaceful public protest with your Peaceful Assembly Bill. Umno has proven to be incapable of change and reform. You have unashamedly used the police and other organs of the gomen to harass, intimidate, obstruct all political opponents and NGOs not aligned to you.

    The only way Umno (and BN) to consider reforming is for them to sit in the opposition bench for a couple of terms. Words are of little use when not translated into actions and deeds. After 54 years of independence Umno has transformed our country into a fake best democracy in the world. A country that has lost its chance to be a first class nation due to corruption, cronyism, nepotism, racism and religious bigotry. Which political party in the world sells its own country’s sovereignty to outsiders to retain political power?

    Rakyat already given you 52 years to change. If you really want to change, do it before GE13 or we will change you.
