We are furious with Abdul Rashid, PPBM Vice President, ex EC Chairman, ex Perkasa member…

READ WHAT TAN SRI ABDUL RASHID ABDUL RAHMAN IS QUOTED AS SAYING:

He said as a former EC chairman, he knew how to keep the Malays in power.  

He said three re-delineation exercises of electoral borders, which were done during his time with the EC, had ensured Malays remained in power. “We did it in a proper way. Not illegally. The people who lost in the past general elections claimed that we did it wrong. But if we did, how did Barisan Nasional lose to the opposition in Kelantan, Penang and Selangor?” asked Abdul Rashid.

Abdul Rashid was the EC chief from 2000 to 2008 and the EC deputy chief before that.

…Ambiga, who was the Bar Council president before leading Bersih, said that this admission meant that the re-delineation exercises Abdul Rashid had conducted in the past were illegal.

“(It) also means redelineation did not follow the Federal Constitution. Will this EC do the same? They should respond!” she said.

Abdul Rashid in his winding-up speech yesterday during the party’s annual general meeting had urged his party leadership to channel government contracts to its division and branch leade

The former Election Commission chairman also said it was “stupid” to deny PPBM leaders access to government contracts — leading to standing ovations from some in the crowd.

He also asserted that PPBM must use any means necessary in order to win elections, “by hook or by crook”.

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 31 — Bersih 2.0 said today it was shocked by the sentiment among some Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) delegates seeking resources and projects from the party’s position as part of the governing coalition.

The electoral watchdog reminded those delegates that it was just in May this year that Malaysians voted Barisan Nasional out over the latter’s purported abuse of power, corruption and political patronage.

“Has Tan Sri Rashid and the cheering delegates forgotten so quickly why Malaysians rejected the previous Umno-Barisan Nasional government just seven months ago?” its steering committee said in a statement, referring to PPBM vice-president Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman.

Abdul Rashid in his winding-up speech yesterday during the party’s annual general meeting had urged his party leadership to channel government contracts to its division and branch leaders.

The former Election Commission chairman also said it was “stupid” to deny PPBM leaders access to government contracts — leading to standing ovations from some in the crowd.

He also asserted that PPBM must use any means necessary in order to win elections, “by hook or by crook”.

“The abuse of power by the ruling elites through the channelling of government resources, corruption and political patronage was such a revolting stench that united Malaysians said ‘enough is enough’ on May 9, 2018,” said Bersih 2.0.

It also reminded PPBM that becoming the government is not a reward, but rather a responsibility entrusted to politicians by voters.

“Serve diligently, effectively and honestly and the people will renew the contract every five years. Abuse your power to enrich yourselves and those you favour, the people will take that power from you and the law will be brought to bear on you,” it warned.

The group also lauded the PPBM Youth wing for rejection such demands, but urged party chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is also prime minister, to hasten implementation of electoral reforms.

This includes enacting an Administrative Neutrality Act to deal cronyism patronage, the abuse of government resources and public power for partisan purposes, in addition to a Political Financing Control Act to introduce transparency in political financing and establish rules on access to political funding, limits on contributions, expenditures, disclosures.
