Did BN Actually Receive Less Than 47% Of The Popular Vote?

Did BN actually receive less than 47% of the popular vote?

This is intriguing because there are persistent claims from the opposition that foreigners were used to pad the numbers.

Claims by the opposition that some foreigners were even registered to vote as security personnel.

Claims that foreigners had been escorted by the police to some polling centers to vote.

Claims of the flying in by the planeloads from the East Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak of foreigners to vote in peninsular Malaysia.

This last was eventually acknowledged by Tengku Adnan, the current Putrajaya MP, though he claimed that those being flown in were not foreigners but voters flown in by BN friendly people.

That explanation sounds a little stretched out and a little difficult to accept.

There were even mysterious tweets, according to Sarawak Report, about one Fernandes, Air Biman, Banglapura and "making shit happen 5/5"

If the claims are true, it would appear that BN had obtained less than 47% of the popular vote!

How much less we won't know, unless the authorities are forthcoming. Which few Malaysians have any illusion of.

SPR (The Election Commission) should seriously address the claims to at least try to clear some of the people's reservations as to the GE13 results.

Sadly again, given the Commission's often less than convincing if not often times fatuous responses to the various allegations of cheating at the polls in various forms, including a dubious electoral roll, fewer Malaysians still have any illusion that there will be any serious answers in sight.

Which is all the more sad, because Home Minister Zahid Hamidi's call for Malaysians who are not happy with the outcome of GE13 and the Malaysian electoral system to just leave the country, will only serve to reinforce the people's perception that there was not only something fishy but also foreign to the whole gestalt of GE13.

And show up a regime bent on retaining power by all means and at all costs.

Did the people who attended the rally look like violent to anyone?

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
