Whatever the outcome of any electoral reforms that may arrive out of a proposed parliamentary select committee, whether out of pressure from the discredited BERSIH or not, one thing is for sure.
I WILL NOT VOTE IF THE USE OF INDELIBLE INK IS IMPLEMENTED.
It is an affront to the dignity of Malaysia, which has carried out uninterrupted General Elections since independence, free and fair, despite claims to the contrary by vested interests even with gains in the last election that could have toppled the ruling BN Govt.
No, I am not going sully any part of my anatomy by a procedure that is "widely used in third world countries where citizens' identification document is not standardized or institutionalized; which then renders voters verification redundant."
Is the Govt afraid that it may end up like Egypt or Libya?
Or Syria next?
Executive Order 13572, April 29, 2011
I, Barack Obama, President of the United States of America, hereby expand the scope of the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13338 of May 11, 2004, and relied upon for additional steps taken in Executive Order 13399 of April 25, 2006, and in Executive Order 13460 of February 13, 2008, finding that the Government of Syria's human rights abuses, including those related to the repression of the people of Syria, manifested most recently by the use of violence and torture against, and arbitrary arrests and detentions of, peaceful protestors by police, security forces, and other entities that have engaged in human rights abuses, constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby order.....
Yes, these traitorous bastards have no compunction to group us with the likes of Egypt, Libya or Syria as seen by the Western hegemonists.
Traitorous bastards who don't mind branding our growing democracy as third world for their selfish agenda.
Let's assume indelible ink gets parliamentary blessing, would that be the end of any "doubts"?
These bastards will still cry election fraud on account of "phantom" voters, claims of supporters "inked" out of voting or persons voting twice, make that five times, before they were marked as having voted.
As Karpal so famously said,
OVER MY DEAD BODY.
