Umno Youth questions ‘voices of the people’

Umno Youth questions ‘voices of the people’

KOTA KINABALU: Umno Youth has questioned the “deafening silence” from the Bar Council, NGOs and bloggers over plans by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to woo Barisan Nasional MPs.

Its secretary Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan said these groups, which claimed to defend the rights of the people, have remained silent over Anwar’s move to engineer defections, which he described as undemocratic and an act of stealing the mandate of the people.

“Where are the voices of NGOs, Bar Council and bloggers who had voiced loudly the need to protect the rights of people?” he asked here yesterday.

“Why are they not coming out to criticise Anwar and tell him it is morally wrong to grab power? Does their silence mean that they are being used by Anwar?”

Abdul Rahman said he was also surprised at the silence of the United States, which usually trumpeted the importance of democracy in the world.

The Kota Belud MP said the people of Malaysia voted for a two-party system in the last general election.

“Anwar should accept his role as Opposition Leader and carry out his duty of checks and balances,” he said.

If Sept 16 does occur, it will not be a surprise if Barisan supporters go to the streets to challenge the legitimacy of a government formed through undemocratic means. And all this is because Anwar wants to be Prime Minister.”

seals: we the people gave BN a simple majority hoping BN will change and will work for RAKYAT but did not see any change but we see BN is becoming worse. So, we decide to let the MP's move to PR so that the change can happen even before the next General Election. We can't wait till then. It is Peoples Power that have to realise that.

Why we should ? This is the new mandate. People can change you but you cannot change the people. Until you change people will it will go on.

I am sure if you work for people and people loves BN no one will be able to challenge BN.

The evidence is the previous election where BN was given almost 90% mandate, never before you were given this much. But you misused it and did not live by it. So people decide to change you.
