SEGAMAT (May 3, 2013): Caretaker Prime Minister Najib  Abdul Razak’s Umno-led Barisan Nasional (BN) is the dirtiest ever ruling coalition in electoral history.
“Not only is the Election Commission (EC), led by an Umno member, continuing to allow soldiers and police to vote twice with the ‘delible ink’ fiasco, it ignores BN’s money politics and the use of foreigners who carry national registration identical cards that specify expiry dates but they are allowed to vote in the 13th General Election on Sunday (May 5).
“Given the shockingly extensive cheating in electoral history by the corrupt BN-Umno, only a truly People’s Power can topple such an irresponsible regime.
“Malaysians need to make it at least an 80% and above voter turnout to ensure that they realise change. Your hopes for a clean, caring and loving Pakatan Rakyat (PR) will not come true if you don’t come out to vote on May 5 because every vote counts,” Johor PKR chairman Chua Jui Meng said.
Speaking at three ceramahs in Buloh Kasap tonight, Chua said: “BN component parties are today the traitors of Malaysians and the country. The fear of losing political power has led them to use foreigners to win the vote on May 5.
“BN cannot be trusted any more, it must not be allowed to govern Malaysia with such irresponsibility. If you do not want foreigners to decide your future, come out in full force to cast your ballots,” he added.
Chua said Umno’s Tengku Adnan had confirmed flying in people back to the peninsula to their home state to vote on Sunday.
“Tengku Adnan claims that PR was also doing the same by using buses to ferry people back from Singapore to vote. But there is a great difference.
“We are ferrying back Malaysians. BN is flying in soldiers to enable them to cast their ballots a second time as ordinary citizens and foreigners, especially Bangladeshis,” he added. (View this link to see if they look like Malaysians: )
Chua said much has been said in ceramahs about PR’s Bukit Jingga, PR’s federal manifesto and Johor PKR manifesto.
“Tens of thousands of flyers have been distributed. Read and judge for yourself our caring, loving and transparent policies for the people when we are given your mandate to govern,” he added.
“On Sunday, it is the rakyat’s only chance to rid the corrupt and racist BN-Umno regime through the democratic process. If BN-Umno is returned to power, it will be even more arrogant, more corrupt and greedy,” Chua said.

‘Investors will shun Umno’s racist policies’

 ‘Investors will shun Umno’s racist policies’

Chua … victory for the people can only be achieved with the rakyat’s full support.

SEGAMAT  (May 2, 2013): After completing a nine-hour (11am to 8pm) walkabout in the commercial centre here, in the Malay heartland villages and the Taman Yayasan night market, Johor PKR chief Chua Jui Meng ended the night with two ceramahs.
Chua delivered his ceramah at 8.30pm in a DAP ceramah featuring Lim Kit Siang in Kampung Abdullah. The ceramah attracted about 15,000 people.
He then headed for Kampung Gelang Cincin, an Umno stronghold, at 9.30pm, for a PAS ceramah organised by Buloh Kasap candidate Firdaus Masod’s campaign team.
At the DAP ceramah, Chua reminded the Chinese audience: “We want change but let’s not be overly confident. The Umno-led Barisan Nasional (BN) mean machine and the use of government resources to cheat on Sunday (May 5 polling day) make our battle for justice and good governance much more difficult.
Lawan Tetap Lawan (We must definitely fight),” he said to a thunderous round of response from the audience repeating the battle cry.
Chua reminded the audience that victory for the people can only be achieved with the rakyat’s full support.
“Every single vote counts if we want to get rid of the cheating by BN. So, all must come out to vote for PR,” he added.
Chua said PR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim had proven himself as a competent finance minister who brought five consecutive budget surpluses when he was deputy prime minister and finance minister.

He was then recognised internationally as the best finance minister and a jealous Mahathir Mohamed had to remove him.
“So, BN is talking rubbish by saying that the Anwar-led Pakatan Rakyat (PR) federal government would bankrupt the country. It is BN that will bankrupt the country with corruption and plundering of the country’s wealth,” he said, adding the Najib Abdul Razak-led BN had been internationally recognised as the world champion in corruption.
Chua said the Chinese in Johor had overwhelmingly decided to give PR a chance to govern after May 5 and “we are also feeling the winds of change from the Indians and Malays”.
“We promise a caring and loving government for the people. Anwar has repeatedly said that the PR government would do away with all the BN’s race-based policies to fast forward Malaysia’s socio-economic growth for all Malaysians.
“Give us five years to show what we can do for Johoreans, just like what we have achieved in Penang, Selangor, Kedah, Kelantan and, for a while in Perak, with a clean administration.
“An administration that looks after the people, not cronies,” he added.
In Kampung Gelang Cincin, Chua said six retired army generals had joined the political cause of PR because “they have had enough of BN’s corrupt ways”.
“They are experienced and educated Malays who know what is right, what is wrong. They also know the corruption and abuses of power of the BN administration,” he added.
“After 56 years of Umno rule, where are the Malays in the many rural areas, the so called Malay heartland. Are you any better off economically compared with the Umno cronies?”
He urged the Malays to look at the facts when deciding which political coalition to support on Sunday (May 5, 2013).
“Stop giving Umno blind support and continue to be enslaved by Umno. Think rationally and out of the box, not emotions.
“Umno is not worth your support,” he said, adding that Umno had actually betrayed the Malays’ trust.
Chua said Umno was today a racist party that continues to use race and religion to divide Malaysians so that it continues to rule and plunder the nation’s wealth.
“Umno priority is not the welfare of the people and country. It is their pockets and cronies.
“If Umno could reform after 2008, it would not pursue its current political agenda of using race and religion to incite hatred between Malaysians of all races. It would have focused on national unity to win the hearts and minds of Malaysians.
“If Umno wins the vote on May 5, we will all suffer economically because investors, both local and foreign, will shy from Malayisia’s racist policies,” he added.
