Najib: Don’t Vote For The Opposition Even If You’re Unhappy With Present Administration


If you’re frustrated with the way the current ruling party is handling things, the best way to solve the problem is… Not vote against them to remove them from power.

DPM Datuk Seri Najib says: “A by-election like this is not the time to show that we are upset over certain small matters.  We must use our heads to think about our future and not be influenced by our feelings and emotions.”

A reference to this, perhaps? Why the Chinese Act Like Chinese in Malaysia (or, Why the DAP is Not in Power)

I would agree with him. By-elections are important, but not the king-makers. The general elections are the time to vote incompetents out of power.

Note the key words in the Star report: choose a party that could ensure peace and stability, and a brighter future for all. 

But I don’t really think he had any sinister undertones. It just can be looked at from that angle, if you’re really cynical and paranoid about the way politics run around here.

From The Star 11 Apr 2007:

Think about your future and don’t be influenced by emotions, Najib tells voters

MALACCA: Voters must not use a by-election to voice their frustration by staying away or choosing the opposition, said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. 

“A by-election like this is not the time to show that we are upset over certain small matters.  

“We must use our heads to think about our future and not be influenced by our feelings and emotions,” he said when launching the Felda Tun Ghafar Menggong Medan Selera yesterday. 

He urged voters to choose a party that could ensure peace and stability, and a brighter future for all. 

Najib said he was confident of a good turnout during polling in the Machap by-election tomorrow. 

“After meeting with voters here, I am more confident that Barisan will win in Machap and we will continue to work hard to get a bigger win than the general election,” he said. 

At the launch of the Datuk Wira Poh Ah Tiam Recreational Park in Machap Baru later, Najib said history revealed a strong bond that existed among the races in Machap since 1902 when the Chinese helped to build a mosque here. 

Meanwhile, the MCA is urging outstation voters to return to cast their votes tomorrow. 

Party president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting said party leaders and members had focused on persuading these voters to exercise their right. 

Ong said accusations by the opposition that polling day was deliberately set on a working day to their disadvantage were baseless. 

“This will affect to our supporters as well. It is a decision made by the Election Commission and has nothing to do with Barisan Nasional,” he said. 

Ong also asked the Selangor MCA to start preparations ahead of the Ijok by-election even though the constituency was not Chinese majority. 

“The MCA will go all out to campaign for the Barisan Nasional candidate in Ijok,” he said.

    Just dropped by again and felt a need to comment on your observations. Najib’s comments are not only cynical but designed to remind the older and less educated non-Bumi not to doing anything other than that that favours BN, sorry I meant UMNO.

    Any analysis of our electoral system and UMNO methods will lead all to the conclusion that UMNO will remaiin the government after the next election. However, it is time for all Malaysians that wants a future with fairer and less corrupt government and politics to change the malice of complacency and vote the opposition. It’s yours and your next generations future that you are now responsible for.

    I would venture to say that my generation and those before us had subscribed too much to letting the politicians have their way so long as they can buy security i.e. make money. So much so that we have let a bunch of corrupt MCA and useless Gerakan leaders pretend to be part of government.. BN component parties are just a gimmick to provide UMNO with the pretense of multi-racial government. Just look at what had been said by our PM on the resignation of Tan Sri Chong Kah Kiat. It’s not a loss and he can have his rest! Compare that to the DG of ACA who got such a nice mention when allegations of sex crime and corruption is still under investigation.

    It’s time your generation find the strength to do what is right for both your future and the next. God would expect us all to do what is just and take a stand to what is evil and corrupt. Speak out in defence of a more just and fair nation.

    There are much perverted spews that simply aren’t worth reading about and M’sia’s MSM are only too happy to “dutifully” carry ‘em.

    [...] The Barisan Nasional powers-that-be know that they’re privileged position is precarious. They even ask us not to vote for the Opposition even if we’re unhappy with the ruling party. [...]

    Most of these are needless to say of very little use.
    If you are home through the day put food in large containers or freezer bags in the fridge and
    serve yourself for each meal. Customers were even making threats of boycotting
    the popular show.
