To my dear readers, tell me if there is anything sinister about the demands of Bersih, other than it is for the good of all Malaysian voters, regardless of their political leaning. We cannot allow the Election Commission (EC) or anyone else to dictate terms that is detrimental to the establishment of a just and fair election process without prior knowledge and consultation with the people. We cannot allow the government or anyone else to interfere with the workings of the EC in trying to establish an election process that is of the highest standards, fulfilling the voter needs of a truly democratic society. We need to remind EC that they are answerable to His Majesty the King on their responsibility and performance, and that they are to remain neutral at all times off any political interference.
We seek that the EC take heed of the demands by Bersih are as follows:
1. Clean the electoral roll
2. Reform postal ballot
3. Use of indelible ink
4. Minimum 21 days campaign period
5. Free and fair access to media
6. Strengthen public institution
7. Stop corruption
Are the above people’s demands too difficult to meet? And is it not the EC’s responsibility to continuously seek ways to improve and better the election process, thus giving the voters the unquestionable confidence that the election process is truly free and fair?
Finally, please do not betray the trust bestowed upon you by His Majesty the King in fulfilling your avowed responsibility to all Malaysians.
