Politically-inclined EC a mere tool of the BN
COMMENT The denial of the basic democratic principle of one person, one vote is another reason, apart from phantom voters and irregularities in the electoral roll, why Malaysians should mobilise in full force for the Bersih sit-in protest at Dataran Merdeka from 2pm on Saturday.
We should all, as citizens, press for clean, free, fair and independent elections. Election watchdog NGO Tindak Malaysia has provided irrefutable evidence of the Election Commission's (EC) bias towards BN by gerrymandering and manipulating electoral boundaries until one rural voter is effectively worth an average of six urban voters, for BN is stronger in the rural areas.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
