Mendamba Politik Baru

Selepas Ijok

Suatu pertarungan yang tentunya semakin mematangkan keseluruhan jentera pilihanraya Parti Keadilan Rakyat. Barisan pimpinan dalaman dan antara parti pembangkang sedang menganalisa keputusan pilihanraya kecil N11 IJOK. Kesemua laporan akan diteliti. Setakat ini, pemantauan di pusat-pusat mengundi telah melaporkan berbagai keanihan yang perlu diteliti lebih lanjut.

Apa yang penting sekarang ini ialah kesemua propaganda Umno-BN mengenai PR Ijok itu perlulah rakyat imbangi dengan bahan-bahan bacaan, audio visual, dan lain-lainnya dari media bukan milik Umno-BN. Banyak berita-berita yang disampaikan adalah prejudis terhadap Parti Keadilan Rakyat. Mereka-mereka yang diaibkan atau dituduh melakukan sesuatu yang buruk wajarlah ditanya juga pendapat mereka dengan adil dan menyeluruh. Mana-mana agensi berita, suratkhabar dan stesen TV yang bersifat prejudis terhadap mana-mana pihak adalah tidak layak melaporkan sebarang berita untuk tontonan, bacaan dan pendengaran rakyat jelata.

Selepas Ijok, perjuangan yang lebih hebat dalam “Ijok-Ijok” selanjutnya.

  1. I have always been amazed by any of Tan Sri Rashid’s proposal pertaining to matters associated with General Elections or By-Elections in Malaysia. In response to ugly incident that took place on nomination day at Ijok’s by-election, Rashid had proposed to limit the number of supporters accompanying a candidate to the nomination centre.

    BN and PKR supporters exchanged provocations and later mineral water bottles and finally sticks (sticks used for hoisting banners/flags). One PKR campaigner rang me from Batang Berjuntai in the evening of that notorious day. He said it was the BN who started the provocation and the throwing of water bottles. He said all the water bottles bore the “Dacing” symbol. He confessed PKR did not bring any drinking water. BN supporters, he said, started throwing bottles when PKR supporters responded to provocation by BN suppoters.

    Whoever is in the wrong is entirely a separate issue. It’s for the police to investigate. But how is Rashid going to limit the number of suppoters? What type of suppoters are allowed to accompany a candidate? Only YBs or a minister or who can accompany a candidate?

    From my experience in the past it was always the BN who had the most supporters accompanying a candidate. I am afraid, if for example, only serving cabinet ministers or serving YBs are allowed to accompany a candidate then candidates from PKR or PAS or DAP have to come alone to nomination centres other than their respective proposers and seconders.
