Voter registration form got Malay bumi quota, ah?

Sharifuddin A. Latiff

Wahlauweh! Guess where Najib Razak was last night?

Come on folks, cuba teka.

In Sabah – one of the East Malaysian states where Umno Baru has proclaimed as its fixed deposit vote bank.

For the third consecutive day, Berita Harian is pursuing its controversially slanted voter registration story. On Day 3, in its article headlined ‘NGO Melayu cari pengundi’, it reported that Najib gave a press conference in Sabah.  

Therefore, it figures that the PM did his ‘walkabout’ survey – “melakukan tinjauan mesra di sekitar kawasan Pasar Lido, Penampang” – in the state with the most number of Umno members, i.e. Sabah.

Duhhh! How come Sabah got so much more UMNO-nites compared to say Johor, the state where UMNO Lama was born?

Well, for that story and the background on how the Sabah population ballooned with new Indonesian and Filipino immigrants who are MyKad holders and hence eligible voters, please read “Umno’s hand in dubious Sabah voter registration“. 

The Berita Harian report today described Najib as the ‘BN chairman’. Hairan bin Pelek yaah, instead of stressing on a campaign to register ALL Malaysians who qualify to vote, they seem to be keen to register only Malays and the campaign is all about getting Malay youths to sign up as new voters.

Other races including non-Malay bumiputras in East Malaysia and their votes are not welcome by the gomen meh?

And guess who will be going to the ground to get new voters?

Gabungan Pelajar Melayu Semenanjung (GPMS), Gabungan Graduan Melayu Muda, Perkasa and the Ku Klux Klan. Err, maybe we misheard that last one …

Sooo .. it’s definitely a Malay get Malay only thingy.

Last but not least, from SABM activities, we know that the EC is downright stingy with giving out the voter registration forms to the volunteer/assistant registrars.

So we’re wondering if EC will be unusually generous and give more than enough stacks of the forms to Perkasa and its ilk now.

Jangan jual borang kat downline aje, Brahim oi!

Great pix, it’s Malaysian Insider’s, thank you!

      Sharin, while Hartal MSM allows fair comment or a different viewpoint
      as in your previous one on our ‘Gertak’ posting, this ad hominem
      attack on the team has no redeeming value whatsoever. While we still
      wish you well (but not hell-bound), your future participation in this
      blog will be moderated – shar101.

    With the high level of illiteracy among Sabah’s old and young, UMNO will always remain in power at both federal and state level.

    Najib razak is indeed benefiting from the treasonous acts of past UMNO leaders – Mahathir and Anwar included.

    With the millions of Filipinos and Indonesians and Pakistanis in Sabah and UMNO, Sabah is doomed forever.
