Call on Sarawak voters to become Justice Pao in the 15GE to send the corrupt to jail and to free the innocents

Barisan Nasional and UMNO President, Zahid Hamidi, made a infamous speech at the MIC Assembly on the same day Parliament was dissolved – on Oct. 10, 2022. He said:

“Candidates from MIC, Umno, MCA and PBRS have to win in a dominant fashion. It’s now or never. This election is the mother of all general elections. If we fail, our fate will be worse than the last election.

“Right now, only I will be charged, Tok Mat (Umno deputy president Mohamad Hasan), you are on the waiting list, Vicky (MIC president SA Vigneswaran) don’t laugh, you are also included. What more (MIC deputy president M) Saravanan?

“(MCA president Wee) Ka Siong? They won’t forget you. You will be charged as well. (Defence minister) Hisham (Hishammuddin Hussein), don’t smile.

“To avoid this, we have to win in a dominant manner, my brothers and sisters.”

I believe that the overwhelming majority of thinking Malaysian voters cannot agree with Zahid that the 15th General Election is to protect UMNO and BN leaders from being sent to jail for their corruption offences.

The fifth Prime Minister, Abdullah Badawi, spoke of the need to have a Justice Pao in Malaysia to fight corruption and abuses of power but this never came about.

I call on the Sarawak voters to themselves become Justice Pao in the 15th General Election to send the corrupt to jail and to free the innocents.

This is important because corruption is most rampant today in six decades of Malaysian history.

We do not want to lose out to China, India and Indonesia in the battle against corruption and to have a honest and non-corrupt government.
