SDP congratulates the people of Malaysia

Photo: MalaysiaKini

The SDP congratulates the people of Malaysia for the courage to vote for change in their country as well as Dr Mahathir, Mr Anwar Ibrahim and the leaders of Pakatan Harapan in their victory.

The result of the general elections is clear demonstration that Malaysians want to see a new era of democratic accountability from their government. The mandate that they have given to the Pakatan Harapan to form the new government is the latest Asian example that democracy and freedom are, indeed, universal concepts.

Malaysia’s decision is a clear rejection of autocratic rule. It shows that the use of laws by the ruling party to stifle dissent, the introduction of legislation as a pretext to combat “fake news”, the continued control of the mass media, etc, can only go so far.

The yearning for leaders who genuinely respect democracy and the rule of law is strong. Malaysians have set their country on the right path and this day will go down in history as one that Malaysians can be proud of.

The SDP hopes that there will be a smooth transition of power and that the incoming government will implement the mandate given to it by embarking on democratic reform and taking Malaysia into a new era.

  • Najib Not Paper Scholar:

    Najib isn’t smart enough to learn everything from his selfie buddy. While both are equally corrupt, surround themselves with cronies and implimented kan**roo laws, he should have patiently paid himself obscene salaries rather than to take a huge bite of the people’s money at once. He should put his wife to run the 1MDB and keep her salaries secret instead.

    well said, sis. agree.

    we may not have a Dr Mahatir in our midst.

    fret now. we have Ms Sylvia Lim, Mr Lim Tean, and such similarly fearless talented in our midst. more than enough to do a similar job here.

    all that is needed is for us 30% to each daily without fail convert one 70% sheep. GST killed najib umno. so GST 9% is going to kill clown pap. for sure.

  • Boh Kia See:

    While we celebrate the Opposition winning an election they were not supposed to win, we have to think about the Singapore situation. One of the Sultans said that the people’s wishes should be respected. When we were in Malaysia, the old fart, now decesased, was starting his campaign to remove this road block to his power. In the course of his campaign Singapore was kicked out.

    So Singapore is very different from Malaysia. We have all our institutions of State under the control of the PAP.

    We keep talking about the “next” election. If there is one, I am not certain if it were be a clean election. But I am of the view that there may not be ab election at all or that the election results could be invalidated for one reason or another if it is not in the PAP’s favour.

    My view is that there will be an election in which the people choose whether they like the PAP or not. It will not have any repercussions on the PAP’s grip on power.

    On another note, every time I log into this website, I get infected with virus. Strange isn’t it.

  • Singaporeans - the Living Dead:

    Yes, the Malaysians have shown that they are a people of deeds not just words! Will the same scenario play out in Singapore at the next GE, personally I don’t think so.

    The Opposition in Malaysia won because they have the a good shepherd in the person of Dr M. Mahathir. Singaporeans are like a load of lost sheep. Without another to guide them, they will just follow blindly the only shepherd in the field even if the shepherd (piper in disguise) leads them to the edge of the river.

    That, my friend, is how I view the Singaporeans – a bunch of Zombies walking around like the living dead!

  • Unique and principled:

    Tun Mahathir is a rare one. Imagine at 92 and what he did. Personal glory, greed, ego? Far from it. Family wealth preservation? Come on. He has his share of those who don’t like him. Normal especially for a longstanding politician. Who doesn’t? Just look at his calm demeanor. Overall he has a proven track record that he can be very very proud of.

Which ex-PAP member or prominent ex-civil servant in sg would dare to do the same? Who in sg dares to provoke that powerful Petty Man whose own family members even needed to self-exile in order to avoid his abuse of power?

  • WE Want change too:

    Within 100 days their new regime will repeal or amend all oppressive laws.

    The PAP has systematically passed laws to oppress and silence and bully Sporeans.

    The PM must be limited to only two terms to prevent like what’s happening now a dictatorship, cronyism and nepotism and a culture of compliance.

    Vote for change for a brighter future for your children and grandchildren.

    And to stop PAP from always raiding the public coffers to pay themselves handsome bonuses and pensions.

  • Blame opposition lah:

    It is a easy task to blame Singaporeans not our oppositions. Take a leaf from the grand master of politics Dr mahathir. If he can cooperated with all his enemies and also can convinced the conservative Malays to get the mandate why can’t our oppositions can’t. Our oppositions are useles,s lah, must admit first lah. Most of them are very vain and have lot of egos. Oppositions please show your sacrifices first, Singaporean are watching why can’t they hit even a ball over the net for so many years. Don’t they knew that the ball is in their side. Don’t blame Singaporean lah.

  • The Rot Started From The Top:

    We look forward to oppositions to form ‘Harapan Singapura’ to overturn the incompetent and political thug party. They had implemented too many dirty and self serving policies and is forcing us to pay many variety of taxes, while they paid themselves in millions, without regards to the extreme high disparity in wages. They had flawed in many areas of responsibilities, and had never truthfully been honest. Only a change of regime, can we, the citizens know how far had those thugs mishandled the nation’s fund and the Reserve.

  • Why sg cannot invent best:

    LIONS:
    Tun M says COALITION IS IMPORTANT.
    So,even for seasoned PM,he place emphasis on UNITY N SYNERGY.
    What about our oppo sgs?
    Who will lead them ?

    Malaysians live in a freer society .
    Singaporeans live in a police state.
    They are different.

    They are so controlled, their creativity is lost.

    To illustrate, sgreans top in maths and science in studies.
    But academic result is a false representation of reality.
    How so?
    Sg has not invented anything best in the world.
    Not Uber , not Google, not Space X, not nothing.

    So, if study so well in science, nothing invented that’s best?

    Simi LAN Jeow?

    My point is simple. SG lacks great talents.
    They appear talented in terms of paper qualifications.
    But reality is :

    1. Sg now has EXActly a big FAT ZERO LKY.
    2. Malaysia has a Mahathir.

    3. This lack of talent is proven by WP. Many criticised how unimpressive it is. Many say it’s not they dun want change. WP give them no confidence. A timid party gets no where.

    4. Malaysia Opposition like Tony Pua shows what it takes to be true Opposition.
    To be TRUE OPPOSITION, the leader has to know one thing. That it’s a all or nothing game. If timid and balless, might as well become a girl?

    Tony Pua shows us what it takes to be an opposition leader. He puts his life on the line. He can easily be jailed. But he took up the job.
    If he lose, he may be jailed or sued bankrupt.
    But Singapore lacks such talents. This is why we only have a WP that despite given decades to try, achieved nothing.

    WP lack a true lion like JBJ .

    5. Coalition for SG Opposition? There is a lack of talent to begin with. Coalition of no one?
    So far , I only see the following are real opposition : Lim Tean, Tan Jee Say, Dr Chee,

    WP is a self-preservative pseudo opposition. We all know that it will take 50 years for such party to form the gov.

    Just compare LTK with Mahathir.
    You see they cannot be compared. Mahathir is real opposition talent.
    The other is a wannabee.

    SG cannot have a Tsunami, you bodoh!
    SG can only have a long Kang ponding.
    Citizens are timid.
    This is why when we see Malaysian opposition speak, we find that we dun have such real opposition leaders in SG. Our opposition is afraid and mince words. They are impotent opposition. Half fiack.

    Their impotence gave many fence sitters NO CONFIDENCE.
    To lead a country and run a country is a tremendous undertaking.
    People realise opposition has no GARANG in them sufficient to induce confidence.

    This is why many did not vote wp.

    LTK is merely a half half opposition.

    Not the real deal.

    Singapore DOES NOT HAVE talent to induce confidence in the peasants.

    Few dare to follow their lead.

    Low has delayed our democracy for decades.
    Good Riddance.

    Mark my Prophecy : Singapore can only have regime change IF AND WHEN EXTERNAL FORCES DECIDE TO do so. Domestically, everyone is domesticated beyond hope.

    None of you can debunk me.
    It’s easier to just migrate.

    Dr Mahathir is indeed a rare “young” man. His recent return to galvanise the Opposition can only be described as ” beyond the call of duty”.

    A man who is not shy to admit his mistakes and tries to right the wrongs.

    A man who is not shy to admit his mistakes and tries to right the wrongs.

    Anyone with commonsense knows to beat the Goliath,
    the little Davids need to unite and form a coalition.

    Even Singapore opposition people realised this in the last GE.

    BUT she opposition could not Unite to form a coalition.

    Here are reasons why :

    1. Compare with Malaysia, we can see real Opposition leader vs wannabees in Singapore.

    Clearly, Singaporeans cannot produce a world respected Opposition leader.
    To be respected , our opposition leader need to demonstrate the Mahathir characteristics. The GARANG do-not-mince-words politician. Eg. Tony Pua.

    Given the absence of a respected real opposition talent respected by the world standard, of course the SG opposition cannot be united. All these boy scouts do not have any idol they respect as their leader to unite them.

    So, the logic of coalition is simple but even a simple logic like this case not be implemented in SG because sg has NO SUCH TALENT.

    LTK at most is a tier two actor. He could not command the unity.

    2. Singaporeans think too much. Too calculative. That’s why few great entrepreneurs. Many rich businessmen but these are not the bill gates type of entrepreneurs. These are basing on cronyism. Not originality. Not creativity.

    They are TIMID and so dare not do anything political.
    No talents exist.

    To summarise :
    1. SG can bring regime change. But sg has no such talent yet.

    2. The longer PAP rules, the closer they are to being toppled.

    3. There is a critical mass wanting change. But the kinds of 2nd tier actors we have bring NO CONFIDENCE for people to want to be led by them.
    For people willing to dare to cast their vote to opposition, the opposition leader must be an extraordinarily gifted political genius.

    LTK is not one. He is the best sg has produced but he is not the real deal.
    This is why calculative Singaporeans decided not to vote opposition.

    4. It’s not that Coalition is not the answer. It is. But the prerequisites for coalition is to have a political genius respected by all such that all are willing to be led by such genius.

    5. Because Singapore education system cannot produce such a genius, I declare that Singapore will continue to be ruled by PAP for at least 50 more years.

    It’s easier to just migrate.

  • Boh Bian = Boh Brain:

    Singapore Opposition parties CANNOT UNITE.

    Here is why :

    1. No one single politician is able to impress the rest.
    That’s because none of them are GOOD ENOUGH to be considered a Genius, a future legend.

    Even WP have no confidence to unite .

    They are not capable and not good enough.

    They are not LKY.

    2. There are several opposition leaders. But look at them. Clowns?
    Having opposition leaders is not enough. What it takes is a Genius.

    3. Singapore is INCAPABLE of producing another LEE KUAN YEW for opposition.

    The education system produced regurjitators.
    Wannabees .

    Singapore has no opposition genius.
    It’s best bet is to use the China Olympic model, by offering citizenship to potential political geniuses to become Singaporean.
    So on paper, the talent is a Singaporean. To depend on native Singaporeans is not possible because they are regurjitators.
    They are not original thinkers. Another way is to use Singapore money to buy a great company shares so that sg can say it’s at owned.
    It’s like creative accounting.

    Sg is as hopeless as your HDB flat gonna depreciate to KOSONG.
    ASSET DEPRECIATION SCHEME.

    Enjoy your pathetic retirement!

Actually for the past 5 decades, nothing of real change happened for the better. We are really stuck in this stagnancy and everyone just hopes that other one will bring the change…yes wait on till Kingdom comes.
