I read with disgust the blatant attempt by the Elections Commission of Malaysia to muzzle the Malaysian People’s Alliance @ Pakatan Rakyat by broadening their so called powers to control political parties from using the internet by way of using web sites, blogs and sms to carry out their campaigning?
Is this not the stupidest shameless unethical manner that the EC @ SPR has ever come up with to try bolster the BN’s chances in the next GE?
I say that it’s not only the dumbest thing I have come across since getting interested in our nation’s social and political matters; it’s also the clearest proof that this Elections Commission is clearly biased against the Malaysian Opposition parties!
Click here to read the report in Berita Harian of the Deputy Chairman of the EC, Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar stating the intentions of the Elections Commission to do just that pending the next Malaysian GE.
Opposition parties must rally their legal officers to look into the validity of the EC to attempt to muzzle the Opposition further and challenge this attempted violation of the right to free speech in court!
Not only has the BN monopolized the broadcast media, print media, etc. now their stooges in the EC are attempting to set limitations online as well?
Will Malaysia’s Opposition remain silent about this?
Is there any limit to the EC’s foolhardiness?
