Kit Siang: As GE14 looms, troublemakers out to create chaos between Malays and Chinese
KUALA LUMPUR, MAY 21 — DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang said some “irresponsible mischief makers” are out to create chaos in Malaysia by claiming that the upcoming election is going to be a battle between the Malays and Chinese.
The Gelang Patah MP said all Malaysians, regardless of their race or creed, deserve support if they “stand up for a democratic nation, which upholds the principles of justice and accountability.”
He said this in a speech at the 51st DAP anniversary dinner in Nibong Tebal last night.
“The forthcoming 14th General Election is not a battle between Malays and Chinese, nor is it a battle between Islam and the enemies of Islam.
“The question of race and religion does not apply here, as there are Malaysians, regardless of race or religion, on both sides of the equation.”
Lim added that fear mongering is simply caused by parties who fear a power switch and warned that if such unwarranted allegations are left unchecked, they could truly spark chaos.

PAS targeting 80 parliamentary seats in GE14
PAS is aiming to contest for 80 parliamentary seats in the 14th general election (GE14) and has not ruled out the possibility of going for seats traditionally contested by DAP and PKR.
PAS vice-president Idris Ahmad said the figure and new areas have not been finalised as the details were still being worked out by the party’s election machinery.
He said the Federal Territories PAS Youth were targeting nine parliamentary seats in the Federal Territories namely Titiwangsa, Putrajaya, Labuan, Bandar Tun Razak and Wangsa Maju.
“The others are Setiawangsa, Lembah Pantai, Batu and Segambut,” he told reporters after opening the Federal Territories PAS Youth annual assembly in Kuala Lumpur today.
In GE13, PAS only managed to win 21 of the 73 parliamentary seats and of the 237 state seats contested, PAS won 85 seats.

Posters of ‘missing’ Kit Siang appear in Gelang Patah
GELANG PATAH: Several posters and a large banner questioning the whereabouts of DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang have appeared in front of the party’s service centre in Taman Nusa Perintis here.
A banner with the wording “Where is Uncle Lim Kit Siang? Gelang Patah misses you” was hung between two trees while a “missing” poster with the Gelang Patah MP’s face on it was found at a nearby bus stop.
The poster also stated that Lim was last seen in the Gelang Patah constituency around the time of the Blackout 505 Rally in 2013 “promising Heaven and Earth”.
A mobile phone number was also provided at the bottom of the poster, but it was non-operational.
Gelang Patah Umno division chief Khairi A. Malik said Barisan Nasional components parties had nothing to do with the posters.

GE14 in 178 days? Subang Umno confirms photo real, but…
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 25 ― Subang Umno has confirmed today that a viral photo of a signboard in its office denoting that the 14th general elections will be held less than 200 days away is real.
Despite that, division chief Zein Isma Ismail was quoted saying by news portal Malaysiakini that the “178 days” deadline to the polls is just based on its own prediction of June 30, a few days after the Aidifiltri celebration and after the school holiday period.
“The notice ‘GE14 178 days away’ is based on our own deadline to ensure that all Umno divisions are prepared,” Zein was quoted saying.
The portal had previously quoted division secretary Mohd Rashidi Mohamad saying that the photo was authentic.
The photo had shown the signboard located beside the door of what was labelled as Rashidi’s office.

KUALA LUMPUR: Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has sounded the war horn on Tuesday, calling on leaders and party grassroots to mobilise en masse in preparation for the 14th general election.

Umno supreme council member Datuk Raja Nong Chik Zainal Abidin said Najib had told those present to up the ante in convincing the people that Barisan Nasional was still the most relevant party to lead the nation.

Najib enjoys keeping M’sians guessing on GE14 date http://dlvr.it/Mld5WG
Amid continued speculation on possible snap polls, prime minister Najib Abdul Razak has remained coy on whether the 14th general election would be held next year.
In an interview with The Sunday Star, Najib said he enjoyed keeping the people guessing.
Asked whether the general election will be in the first or second half of 2017, Najib reportedly said, “Not necessarily, it can be later. I’m enjoying this speculation. Let people go on speculating.”
Najib meanwhile said BN candidates must first pass its new and ‘tougher’ vetting system before given a chance to contest.
He said this was the method which had been tested in the Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar by-elections, where BN candidates from Umno won.
Najib, who is Umno president and BN chairperson, said the same principle will be applied to component parties in the coalition.
“If you don’t meet the minimum criteria, you will not even be considered, period.
“That makes it easier for me as president of the party. If they didn’t pass, it is not because of me but because of merit,” he was quoted as saying.
“There is nothing I can do, they have to accept the fact that they lost,” he said.
The Sunday Star also reported it is understood that several component party leaders had failed to qualify during the trial run of the new screening system.
“It is like entering university. You must have a minimum of 2A’s or 2B’s. If you only have 2C’s you cannot get in,” said Najib who admitted that BN did not have an objective method to select its candidates in the last general election.
“When I came up with the principle of winnable candidates, many considered themselves as winnable when in fact they are not,” he said.
This method, he said, would be implemented on top of trying to accommodate demands from the divisions for local candidates, who would also have to go through the vetting process.
