The legitimacy of Najib’s new government is disputed.
Do you remember when Al Gore won the popular vote against Bush? He graciously conceded, thinking it no big matter. The next 8 years that followed ruined America.
For the sake of Malaysia, I think we cannot accept these fraudulent GE13 results. But whatever we do, let us make sure it is non-violent. I cannot stress this enough.
Anwar Rejects GE13 results, cites large popular vote victory, plans rally
Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim:
6 MAY 2013
The recently concluded 13th General Election was marred with unprecedented electoral frauds. Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak and the Election Commission had chosen to ignore the wishes of the rakyat at their own peril despite their earlier pronouncements towards free and fair election. This was despite massive popular support for the cause of clean and fair election.
Therefore, the Election Commission shall be held responsible for being complicit in the worst electoral frauds in our history. A fight for clean and fair election remains the single most important fight that any Malaysians should relate to. I will devote my time and utmost energy to work with BERSIH and the people of Malaysia to ensure that a newly constituted and independent Election Commission shall be in place as soon as possible to rectify the electoral frauds.
The fact that Pakatan Rakyat won the popular votes by a large margin (50.3%, compared to BN’s 46.8%) confirms the mandate given to us and highlights that electoral frauds won the 13th General Election for Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Our conscience cannot allow us to accept election results conjured through frauds and cheating. My heart is with every Malaysian who does not accept the results. I will work towards a national consensus to question the legitimacy of the BN’s government achieved through such electoral frauds.
The movement for change is unstoppable. The simple demand of the rakyat for a clean and fair election to ensure our elected government is accountable, transparent and incorruptible will continue to echo loudly in spite of the rigged 13th General Election.
I shall address the rakyat for the first time post the general election on Wednesday, 8 May 2013 at Kelana Jaya Stadium, at 830 pm. I call upon as many Malaysians to join hands and express our rejection and disgust at the unprecedented electoral frauds committed by Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak and the EC.
Ambiga rejects GE13 results, calls for boycott of all mainstream newspapers and resignation of EC
Bersih steering chairman Ambiga has also rejected the GE13 results.
PETALING JAYA: Election watchdog Bersih has decided to withhold recognition of the new government amidst various reports of alleged electoral fraud in the just-concluded 13th general election.
“We have received many reports of electoral fraud in the GE13. Until a fact-finding mission is completed, we are withholding recognition of the new government,” Bersih co-chairperson S Ambiga said at a press conference here today.
Ambiga added that a people’s panel for the fact-finding mission will be set up in a week’s time. The panel will consist of election experts.
She also called for the boycott of mainstream media such as the New Straits Times, The Star, Berita Harian and Utusan Malaysia.
“We urge people to boycott them as they have lent their hand to the fraudulence that has been perpetrated on the rakyat.
“We also urge the rakyat to wear black in the next one month in protest of the electoral fraud,” said Ambiga.
EC members must resign
Bersih also repeated its call for all the members of the Election Commission (EC) to resign immediately.
“The EC has failed to ensure a clean, free and fair election process. The entire commission should resign unless they can provide evidence to prove otherwise.
