Nurul slams "panic stricken" Shahrizat for May 13 scaremongering
Dato' Seri Shahrizat Jalil's echoing of Tun Dr Mahathir's scaremongering
reveals the real and true nature of a decaying regime. Instead of
showing leadership and focusing on the future, we are reminded of the
possible spectre of communal violence of 13 May - possibly 're-staged'
to save a moribund UMNO.
Shahrizat's panic stricken message in
the event of a Pakatan Rakyat 13 th GE win demonstrates her outright
disconnect with voters especially with Malaysians' political wisdom and
desire for change.
Change through the ballot box
Pakatan Rakyat is committed to change through the democratic process,
and will strive to protect and strengthen Malaysia's electoral
democracy. As such, I would like to repeat Dato Ambiga Sreenevasan's
call: "We want to bring change through the ballot box, if there is to be
change at all."
The UMNO 2012 AGM proves the following point:
The rakyat must choose between UMNO's politics of fear and Pakatan's
politics of hope for a better Malaysia. And the only way to disprove
indeed that fear and panic has descended on UMNO, is for the UMNO
President to immediately debate Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
