Pat Lah said the country's election has always been democratic and fair and the government has never denied the rights to vote to those who are eligable to do so.He said this was proven by the global survey, Voice of the People, conducted by TNS and Gallup International which found that Malaysians are the most confident in Asia of their country's free and fair elections, and outrank most of the region in their faith in democracy.Read here and here.
With a sample size of 1,250 Malaysians, 74 per cent felt that elections in this country were legitimate and 69 per cent believed that government was by the will of the people.The sample was selected from urban areas in the peninsula and respondents were interviewed face-to-face.“This belief in the transparency of elections is in contrast to the sentiment expressed by more than half of respondents across the region who do not consider their country’s election process to be so impartial,” TNS and Gallup said in a statement.
Can we rely on these polls when opinion are mustered up thru interviews conducted face to face with respondents only from the urban areas of the peninsula?. While a vast majority of our voters comes mainly from rural and semi urban areas,does this really reflect the actual feelings on the ground?
Probably the respondents that they interviewed were businessmen,corporate players,civil servants and UMNO/MCA/MIC diehards,then you can rest be assured the answer will be positive.Or they might had even interviewed a number of the "pendatang haram" be it Indon or Bangla the answer will also be a positive one.
The polls only indicate that among the countries in Asia,our democracy is slightly better off than the others,. However,the polls do not tell us whether our elections are conducted evenly or fair and square. When gomen only, are allowed to access the electronic and print media; a campaigning period set for only 9 days and when open canvassing for votes are not allowed; tell me, is this what Pat Lah call democratic and fair?
Its true that the gomen has never denied the rights to vote to those who are eligible to do so. But how and where these eligible voters gonna cast their votes is another story. The latest admission by the EC secretary,that EC officers for registration of voters were found to have transferred voters without their consent is another proof that something is amiss with our election system.
Apart from that,the electoral rolls are marred by instances where unregistered voters has their names put on electoral rolls;10 years old becoming registered voter and persons who had passed away 20-30 years still take leave from their grave to come out to vote in every general election.
If Pat Lah thinks that our polls is fair and democratic, its high time for him to allow in independent observers for the coming general election. If he refuses then there is something fishy about the whole affair and that proves Pat Lah ,you 'cakap tak serupa bikin', and got conned by the pollster's poll.
Go to hell lah Pak Lah. So old still wan to marry and fark your bikin....Mather idiot knn... And the son in law KJ ..macam monkey only..did you always fark your wife from the back till you look like a monkey beruk . Idiot ! All UMNO see you in hell!!
Lies, damn lies and statistics. Whether the election has been free and fair is not a question for opinion poll, since the people may not know how cheatings were carried out. If it was true as the results show, would there be a walk on 10 Nov 2007 seeking royal attention on the poor state of affair on this particular issue. If the government was certain that it had not cheated, would there be any reason why they should have obstructed the walk? The government could have challenged BERSIH to public debate, and show that it did not cheat.
There cannot be a 75% non-cheat, if the survey results is so interpreted. It is either cheat of no-cheat. When the people do not say it was clean, so it was not clean.
your logic is flawed, the fact those interview are urban people is what gives credibility that they are educated and knowledgeable people. If Gallup poll interview kampung folks you gonna say that they are a bunch of ill-informed people like what Malik Imtiaz said during Al-Jazeera interview. Your argument are disapointing only those who already hate the gov will find it rational.
Well truth speaks for itself. Fact is there were approximately 40,000 people who gathered for the BERSIH's gathering to ask for fair elections which means this 40,000 people (which would have been more if road blocks were not put up to let the supporters into KL) feel that malaysia does not have fair elections as compared to the 1,274 people or so. What does that tell you.
Are the stupid dumb ass UMNOputras that stupid they cant see the consensus.
40,000 says there is no fair election
70% of 1,274 says election is conduction fairly.
Yes, the polls results are a surprise , in particular since it is conducted by a non-governmental organisation, in fact foreign. I will not try to explain the results. But how can the vast discrepancy of voters in a rural seat and an urban seat here be considered fair. What about the constituency delineations whereby opposition areas are 'cut up' indiscrimately to give the Barisan National an unfair edge. Where is the fairness when the Barisan National controls all the mainstream media? Where is the fairness when the Barisan National uses all the government machinery at their disposal? I rest my case!!
don't call us pendatang haram..you racist bigots! no wonder ur country is so screwed up
No point in inviting independent observer because those who oppose the gov will already have the fixed mind and will not accept any result that prove the election free and fair.
Oh god I feel pity for Malaysians cheated and cheated by BN and UMNO. Things have to be change. Don't trust the ballot box.
Go back kampung and tanam jagung in Kepala Batas, Ah Lah. The longer you stay, the more sin you will get....
