7 April 2009, another History in Malaysia

7 APRIL 2009

Election Commission (EC) announced the date of two by-elections which will be held simultaneously on April 7. Two Bukit’s (Bukit Gantang and Bukit Selambau) are going to steal the limelight of the political analysts and political leaders after this.

With the campaigning period of 9 days, the commission has fixed March 29 for nominations. The real tests begin for Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak as a Prime Minister on that day indeed. The by-elections are going to determine whether the people are still believe BN’s struggle or they have given up and lost confident on BN. The day will also reflects believe of Malaysian on the new premiership lead by Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Bukit Gantang seat consist majority Malays while Bukit Selambau seat consist multiracial voters in the constituencies. The by-elections are another history indeed. If I have not mistaken this is the first time which two by-elections simultaneously. Hope clean tactics used by the party politics that contesting in the election in order to respect people's rights to vote and protect the democracy system in Malaysia.

More than 70 % of Perak Voters Want Snap Election

ELECTION OR ROYALTY TO FORM PERAK GOVT?

The result above shows that only election can bring changes in Perak. Perakians are demanding their rights that have been take away. They really want fresh election to form a 'people's government'.

Independent pollster Merdeka Centre's latest survey revealed that most of the voters in Perak want a fresh election to resolve the political crisis in the state. A whopping 76 percent of respondents expressed that "the people, through elections" should decide who gets to form the government as opposed to 21 percent who felt it was the prerogative of the palace.

DID PALACE'S DECISION REFLECTED THE PEOPLE'S WILL?

Another survey shows that palace does not reflect the people will. Perakians expected there will be a by-election following of the state assembly dissolution, but sultan declined the motion from Menteri Besar thus declared BN as the new government through defections of several ADUNs.

Let’s hope everything will be fine soon. I'm too think that the palace should give back democracy rights back to the people to choose their favorite government and leaders.

Why 88% Disagree With Sultan?

SULTAN OF PERAK, SULTAN AZLAN SHAH

A survey conducted by Malaysiakini saw an overwhelming majority of readers disagreeing with Sultan Azlan Shah's decision in the transfer of power in the silver state. Let me tell you the true story, actually there were very high expectations that the Sultan would uphold a decision for democracy and morality, rather than pure legality, so the people feel cheated by the sultan’s decision when Tuanku refused to dissolve Perak state assembly.

Thousand of them protested against the new government by Sultan. Protests and huge outcry over what many have called an undemocratic ousting of a legitimate state government, it would be safe to assume that a majority of Malaysians are unhappy over what has been going on in Perak. I have written about this before in my blog, read Malaysia’s Hollow Democracy.

A total of 34,617 out of 39,411 readers, or 87.8 percent said they were against the sultan's decision, however, 3,862 (9.8 percent) survey respondents said they agreed with the sultan's decision while 932 readers (2.4 percent) answered "Don't know" in the four-day survey which ended yesterday.

Save Malaysian Football!

Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and Singapore National teams were beating boys for Malaysia, but it's a total different story nowadays. Today, these teams stand an equal chance of beating Malaysia. Vietnam, even though football league is corrupted internally, is well above Malaysia's standards. Months ago, Malaysia again suffered massive defeat to the ASEAN team in AFF Suzuki Cup (Asean Football Championship).

PERSATUAN KENASEPAK MALAYSIA (TAKE IT EASY)

As long as the football management was not done professionally, Malaysia will continue to be a permanent underdog in international tournaments. By limiting the participation of certain race or ensuring a certain percentage for a particular race was there at all times. This is not football that Malaysians are looking for. Let’s back to the Malaysian football during 70’s and 80’s, the multiracial team was among the best in Asia.


YES.. WE SUCK....... LOOK AT THE RANKING!

We have lots of excellent records that able to proud of. Malaysia qualified for the 1972 and the 1980 Olympics. Although did qualify to play in the 1980 Olympics in Moscow, Malaysia did not take part after heeding a United States-led boycott of the Games due to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. These moment of achievements only through pro-Malaysian team, not with pro-Malays team! What I'm trying to tell is only multiracial players able to bring back the "dream team".

YOU SEE.. THEY PROUD EVEN WHEN NATIONAL LOST.... (DON'T BOTHER HOW STRONG YOUR OPPONENTS ARE)

Now, I forced to talk on the racism in Malaysian football, it would be a big mistake to sweep it under carpet again and the best course of action is to take closer look at it. The question of whether race is a major criterion in the selection of players for the national team arose from the fact that the squad that fared so badly in the recent tournaments. Our team comprised Malays in the field and I guess it’s only one Malaysian Indian in the bench. This led to the question of why the other races were not selected and fears that football, the nation’s favourite sport, has become a divisive factor in our multi-racial society.

SHOW ME A NON-MALAY IN THE PICTURE!

However, the situation in football is different because once this sport cut across racial lines and was widely played among all races and the national team was made up of players of different races. The great Malaysian teams of the 70's and 80's were truly a mixed bag with the likes of S.Ravindran, Soh Chin Aun, Shukor Salleh, Santokh Singh, Mokhtar Dahari, Wong Choon Wah, Hassan Sani, Arumugam, Chow Chee Keong, Abdah Alif, James Wong, Isa Bakar, Bakri Ibni, Lim Teong Kim and others donning national colours.

The question of whether race is a major criterion in the selection of players for the national team arose from the fact that the squad that fared so badly in the recent tournaments. This led to the question of why the other races, especially the Indian and Chinese, were not selected and fears that football, the nation’s favourite sport, has become a divisive factor in our multi-racial society.

Throw the racist coaches, officials, players and teams out of Malaysian football first if wish to see our football to shine again like it was in 1970s and 1980s. Save Malaysian football from continuesly fighting without proper direction. I don't know whether this article reaches FAM, but its sincere message from a true Malaysian that loves football very much and hopes for the immediate reform of the team.

IF YOU REFUSE TO REFORM, WE WILL ONLY GET THIS FOREVER:
