Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak Should Not Ask Why Chinese Voters Did Not Support MCA But Whether Even Malay Voters Would Vote For A Party Led By Such A “Famous” Leader Like Chua Soi Lek? (en/bm/cn)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 8.5.2013.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak should not ask why Chinese voters did not support MCA but whether even Malay voters would vote for a party led by such a “famous” leader like Chua Soi Lek? By continuing to blame Chinese voters or claim that Chinese voters were misled by DAP to vote against BN, Najib is showing contempt not only for democratic right of freedom of choice but also insulting the intelligence of all Malaysian voters.

The recent general elections saw a Malaysian tsunami causing PR to win the popular vote of 51% for the first time in history. Despite gathering more votes than BN from support by all communities, BN continues to blame the Chinese voters. The Chinese form only 25 per cent of Malaysia’s 29 million population of which less than half have registered to vote.

Of that number, BN polled 5,237,699 votes for the 222 federal seats to Pakatan Rakyat parties’ combined 5,623,984 ballots. The three-party pact of PKR, PAS and the DAP also surpassed BN in the state seats, pulling in 4,879,699 votes to the 13-member coalition’s 4,513,997 ballots.

When the Chinese only form 25% of the total voters but PR gains 51% of the popular vote how can BN pin the blame on the Chinese community? Who then are the remaining 26% of the voters if not Malays, Indians, Kadazans and Ibans? Or are these voters foreign Bangla voters?

Najib and BN should study why even Malay and Indian voters are not willing to vote for MCA. After all why would any decent Malay and Indian voter vote for MCA when it is led by such an infamous leader like Chua Soi Lek. Chua Soi Lek is so desperate that he forgets himself as a great politically liability to betray Malaysians by joining hands with UMNO to play the dangerous racial game of blaming BN’s loss of popular vote on the Chinese community.

Kenyataan media Setiausaha Agung DAP merangkap Ahli Parlimen Bagan, Lim Guan Eng di Kuala Lumpur pada 8 Mei 2013.

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak Tidak Patut Bertanya Kenapa Pengundi Cina Tidak Menyokong MCA Malah Sepatutnya Bertanya Kenapa Pengundi Melayu Mahu Mengundi Sebuah Parti Yang Diketuai Pemimpin Yang Begitu Terkenal Seperti Chua Soi Lek?

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak tidak patut bertanya kenapa pengundi Cina tidak menyokong MCA malah sepatutnya bertnaya kenapa pengundi Melayu mahu mengundi sebuah parti yang diketuai pemimpin yang begitu terkenal seperti Chua Soi Lek? Dengan terus menyalahkan pengundi Cina dan mendakwa kononnya mereka ditipu oleh DAP untuk tidak mengundi BN, Najib memperlihatkan kebenciannya terhadap hak demokratik untuk memilih dengan bebas serta mencela intelek pengundi seluruh Malaysia.

Pilihanraya yang baru selesai menyaksikan tsunami Malaysia yang mengakibatkan Pakatan Rakyat memenangi 51% undi popular untuk pertama kali dalam sejarah. Meskipun PR mendapat lebih banyak undi berbanding BN dengan sokongan daripada semua komuniti kaun, BN terus menyalahkan pengundi Cina. Masyarakat Cina hanyalah 25% daripada populasi 29 juta rakyat Malaysia, di mana kurang daripada separuh darinya mendaftar sebagai pengundi.

Daripada jumlah tersebut, BN mendapat undi sebanyak 5,237,699 untuk kesemua 222 kerusi parlimen manakala Pakatan Rakyat menjana 5,623,984 undi. Pakatan tiga parti PKR, PAS dan DAP juga telah memintas BN di kerusi DUN, dengan mendapat 4,879,699 undi berbanding koalisi 13 partinya yang mendapat 4,513,997 undi.

Dalam keadaan masyarakat Cina hanyalah 25% daripada keseluruhan jumlah pengundi dan Pakatan Rakyat mendapat 51% daripada undi popular, bagaimana BN boleh menyalahkan komuniti masyarakat Cina? Siapa pula 26% bakinya jika bukan Melayu, India, Kadazan dan Iban? Atau adakah mereka ini pengundi warga asing dari Bangladesh?

Najib dan BN patut menyiasat kenapa pengundi Melayu dan India pun tidak ingin mengundi MCA. Malah kenapalah mana-mana Melayu dan India yang baik akan mengundi MCA sedangkan ia dipimpin oleh seorang pemimpin yang begitu terkenal seperti Chua Soi Lek. Chua Soi Lek begitu terdesak sehingga lupa dirinya adalah satu liabiliti politik dengan mengkhianati rakyat Malaysia apabila bersekongkol dengan UMNO memainkan permainan sentimen perkauman dengan menyalahkan masyarakat Cina atas kekalahan BN.

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2013年5月8日在吉隆坡发表声明:

拿督斯里纳吉不应该问为何华裔选民不支持马华,而是马来选民会不会投选一个由蔡细历这样“著名的”领袖 所领导的政党?

拿督斯里纳吉不应该问为何华裔选民不支持马华,而是马来选民会不会投选一个由蔡细历这样“著名的”领袖 所领导的政党?他们继续责怪华裔选民,或指华裔选民被行动党误导而反对国阵,纳吉很明显地是蔑视选择自由这项民主权利,然后继续污辱全体马来西亚选民的智慧。

最近的全国大选看出,马来西亚政治海啸让民联第一次取得 51%的得票率。国阵不但没有向各社群争取更多选票,反而继续责怪华裔选民。华裔人口只占全马2900万人口的25%,这些人当中少过半数是选民。

这个数目当中,国阵在222个国会议席中获得 523万7699张选票,而民联获得562万3984张选票。公正党、伊斯兰党及行动党三党在州议席的得票总数为487万9699张,比13党联盟的国阵得票451万3997还多。

当华裔选民只占总选民25%,但是民联却获得51%的多数票,国阵怎么能够怪罪华裔社群?如果其余的26%不是马来人、印度人、卡达山人及伊班人,那么他们又是谁?难道是外藉孟加拉选民?

纳吉和国阵应该研究为何就连马来人及印度人都不愿投选马华,而马华正被一名“著名的”领袖蔡细历领导。蔡细历如此绝望,以致他忘了自己是一名真正的政治负资产, 他与巫统联手玩弄种族游戏、背叛全体马来西亚选民,还因国阵失去多数票,而怪罪华人。

    The race and religion cards are replayed over and over to which urban Malaysians and, increasingly, even rural cousins are getting tired of hearing.

    CSL is finished and so is the MCA from their treacherous betrayal since the days of Tun Tan Siew Sin. My view is that DAP continue to push strategies which do not rely on Federal government aid.

    There are many parties to work with for example in financing public housing projects where you could set up Penang’s own ‘HDB’ ala Singapore. Moving Green Tech and other sustainable solutions to improve the environment as well as providing more opportunities for investments.

    As a frequent visitor to Singapore, you will know the benefits of a transparent government with strong political will to make things happen.

    But I digress.

    The issue of racial polarisation is that of BN’s own fault. It is now technically a Malay Government having successfully removed the MCA and MIC components. Mahathir has engineered this well during his 22 years. If there is any tsunami as pointed out by Najib et al, it is that of BN who has alienated itself from the political realities.

    Winning the popular vote does not earn more Parliamentary seats. It is the way by which electoral boundaries which shape the end point. These have been drawn and redrawn many times by BN over decades to create fix deposit states in order to cling on to power.

    Can you break it? Time will tell.
