Press Statement

27 August 2015

Malaysia is in deep trouble after years of mismanagement and corruption under BN rule. All Malaysians should go out to support Bersih 4 this weekend, whether in KL, Kuching or KK, or indeed in any other city around the world to register our dissatisfaction over the way our country is being run. The demands of Bersih 4 for clean and fair elections, good governance, saving the country's economy and freedom of expression, are consistent with PKR's struggles. These demands should resonate with all right thinking Malaysians here and abroad.

It is our duty as loyal and patriotic citizens to speak up against lawlessness and corruption, and we must not be misled by those who say otherwise. Loyalty to the country requires us to stand up against a government that has lost its moral compass and that is led by politicians mired in corruption scandals which have earned our country worldwide notoriety.

The antics of the anti-Bersih red shirts outside Sogo 2 days ago amount to intimidation and these thugs must be condemned by the PM and the police. However, being led by an UMNO leader, I will not be surprised if these agent provocateurs are allowed to create trouble at the rallies over the weekend. 

I urge the Police to be fair and even-handed in carrying out their duty to ensure the safety of all Malaysians this weekend. After all, we will be standing up for their rights and the rights of their children as well.

Now is the time to act if we care about the future of our children, if we want a say in how our country is being run, if we are to have any hope for a change.
