Voters must know what is politics

LETTER: It’s pointless registering as voters and then not turning up to vote or selling votes to politicians.


Eligible voters should register on their own accord.

Those who don’t know politics and are not interested in politics should not register as voters.

Instead of persuading those eligible to register as voters, the focus should be on educating them on politics.

Briefly, all politics are about restructuring the distribution of power and restructuring the allocation of revenue and resources.

The ruling party cannot be allowed to pursue sapu bersih opportunistic policies on behalf of a small group of people who vote for a living. Voters should work for a living and pay taxes.

Action must be taken in cases of politicians plundering the public treasury, abuse of power, conflict of interest and criminal breach of trust.

The MACC does not cover money laundering cases. It’s stand on corruption is laughable. It has since virtually declared that plundering the public treasury is not corruption if it follows procedures.

That’s why it declared the Sabah water scandal, for example, as not corruption. Isn’t it criminal breach of trust, abuse of power and conflict of interest?

Other examples, among others, are the RM2.6 billion political donation and the 1MDB Scandal.

The ruling party must be thrown out every two to three terms to ensure checks and balances.

The new party that takes over the government must open the books on the previous government for wrongdoing.

It’s said that politics is the last resort of scoundrels. Politics is the art of the devil.

Patriotism, it appears, is the last refuge of scoundrels.

While democracy means the right of the majority in the legislature to rule, it also means the right of the minority — not in the legislature — to be heard. The minority are the losing votes in a seat in an election. Under the first past the post system, the minority are not heard in the legislature. They must be represented in the legislature through non-constituency seats.

If a ruling party cannot be overthrown through elections, the people have lost their sovereignty to a handful of crooks in power.

This is a matter for the UN Secretary General and the UN Security Council.

Putrajaya has no legitimacy in Borneo.

What’s the basis for Sabah and Sarawak to be in federation with Malaya?


Putrajaya has been in non-compliance on MA63. Articles 2 and 160 make this abundantly clear.

The people of Borneo have lost their sovereignty to a handful of crooks in Putrajaya.

The decolonisation of Sabah and Sarawak, begun in 1963, must be completed.
