Challenge to the 730-odd BN parliamentary and state assemblycandidates to declare before Saturday’s nomination of 14GE candidates that they want full investigations into the 1MDB causing Malaysia to become a global kleptocracy and a rogue democracy
Nomination for parliamentary and state assembly candidates for the 14th General Elections is 36 hours away on Saturday.
There are 222 parliamentary constituencies and some 500 State Assembly Constituencies in the states in Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah up for election on May 9, 2017.
I want to challenge the 730-odd BN parliamentary and state assembly candidates to declare before Nomination on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 9 a.m. that they want full investigations into the international 1MDB money-laundering scandal, which spans the globe, causing Malaysia the ignominy, infamy and iniquity of a global kleptocray.
This will be a crucial test as to whether the 730-odd BN parliamentary and State assembly candidates are men and women of principle and substance who are prepared to subordinate their self-interest of being elected as MP or State Assembly representative to the greater interests of saving Malaysia from becoming a kleptocratic state and rogue democracy.
Let us see whether there is anyone among the 730-odd BN parliamentary and State assembly candidates, whether from UMNO, MCA, MIC, Gerakan or anyone of the Sarawak and Sabah component parties of Barisan Nasional who are prepared to decline nomination as a BN candidate, whether for Parliament or State Assembly elections, because the UMNO/BN leadership must bear full responsibility for the 1MDB scandal and Malaysia becoming a global kleptocracy.
Najib believes that he could get away from full accounting for the 1MDB scandal in the 14th general election, by obsfucasting and virtually censoring detailed examination and debate of what the US Attorney-General Jeff Sessions had described as “kleptocracy at its worst”.
If Najib succeeds in burying the 1MDB scandal as an important issue in the 14th General Election, the 1MDB scandal would become not only the “heist of the century”, but the biggest electoral fraud in Malaysian history.
