Today is the 10th of March 2008. That means the 8th of March 2008 was 2 days ago. That means the full results of the 12th General Erection have been fully and officially released by the Fraud-ection Commission. Before i go any further, I would like to state that I am an opposition supporter and my parents voted for DAP so that should give you some perspective on my statements. The final results are as such:
In the Lower House of Parliament (Dewan Rakyat)
BN - 140 Seats
Barisan Rakyat (Total) - 82 Seats
DAP - 28 Seats
PAS - 23 Seats
PKR - 31 Seats
This means that the opposition has successfully denied the 2/3 majority that BN has been abusing for 40 years. The end to constitutional amendments as and when the BN feels like it is over. BN's biggest losses were in FT where 10/13 parliamentary seats were lost to opposition and 4 federal ministers, 6 federal deputy ministers and a few parliamentary secretaries lost their seats. Among the 4 are Semi-Value (the cheater of the indians), Zam zam Alakazam (the propaganda machine), Sharizat (the vote-buyer) and last but not least Aziz Shamshudin. Nearly all MIC candidates lost their parliamentary and state seats and MCA were the biggest losers of the night with their state representation in most states being annihilated and the parliamentary seats being either lost (25/40) or won with small margins (12/15). Gerakan as a party no longer exist as they have lost ALL of the seats they contested in with NO exceptions. UMNO lost over 30 parliamentary seats as well.
State Legislative Assembly (Dewan Undangan Negeri)
Perlis - BN 14 BR 1 * BN rule with 2/3 majority
Kedah - BN 14 BR 22 * BR rule with simple majority
Kelantan - BN 6 BR 39 * BR rule with 2/3 majority
Terengganu - BN 24 BR 8 * BN rule with 2/3 majority
Penang - BN 11 BR 29 * BR rule with 2/3 majority
Perak - BN 28 BR 31 * BR rule with simple majority
Pahang - BN 37 BR 5 * BN rule with 2/3 majority
Selangor - BN 20 BR 36 * BR rule with simple majority ** BR has 65% of seats.
Negeri Sembilan - BN 21 BR 15 * BN rule with simple majority
Malacca - BN 23 BR 5 * BN rule with 2/3 majority
Johore - BN 50 BR 6 * BN rule with 2/3 majority
Sabah - BN 59 BR 1 * BN rule with 2/3 majority
With these results it can be seen that 5 states have fallen to the Barisan Rakyat and in one state BN has lost it's 2/3 majority. I have only two words to say. Makkal Sakthi. Loosely translated it means people power. As RPK said Suara Rakyat, Suara Keramat which means the people's voice is the death knell and it was a resounding one for BN who were drowned in a tsunami of votes. Truly the time has come for solidarity where race and colour no longer matters where a vote is based on who is the best than who is the malay or chinese or indian. Race based politics is over in this nation and together with one voice as one people we have voted to end it. We have given the opposition a chance to lead half of this country and we have given them the voice they want in Parliament, now it is up to them to fulfill their end of the bargain. I hope that their pledges in the People's Declaration will be upheld and they will run this nation the way we want them to run this nation. All politicians are to be treated with a degree of caution. WE ARE THE BOSS. We are the ones who gave them the power and we are the ones who can take it away. The opposition has been given unprecedented power and we are the ones who must check that they are doing their job properly. There is little point in getting rid of one corrupt group and replacing them with another corrupt group. Everyone of us must play a proactive role in checking our government and those with legal training even more so. However, we had reached the lowest ebb in our nation's development and harmony over the last few months and we must all change. Change to accept that your neighbour no matter his skin colour is your brother. Change to accept that your leader that you voted into power is your leader championing YOUR rights no matter his skin colour. To all the indians and chinese who voted for PAS, do no fear because PAS is run by men of the book. Religious men who may be muslim hardliners but have NO chance of being corrupt and inefficient and racist compared to UMNO fools who are all those things AND muslim hardliners. To all malays who voted for DAP, do not fear because DAP is a party for all malaysians. DAP and PKR both fielded candidates from all races because we believe in a united, malaysian malaysia where malay malaysian, chinese malaysian, indian malaysian etc. no longer exist and are replaced my MALAYSIAN!
Umno people have been saying that because the BR has won so many states, these states will have their development projects cancelled and the states will suffer. To this end i urge all of you to view india as a good case example. Nearly all the states are ruled by parties OTHER than the Congress which leads the federal government. India's growth last year was 11%. I rest my case.
I have said a lot about our current state of government. I am not going to notify all of you with the latest election news as you can access that with ease from malaysiakini which is now free until march 12. I have said my piece. Now it is time for all of us to work together to bring a new dawn to this glorious country we call home. Good night
