Malaysia will never ever have free and fair elections. Not when we have an Umno guy as Election Commission chief.
This guy is really not fit to be Malaysia’s Election Commission chief. He has displayed his biasness towards the ruling government. (See Malaysiakini – EC chief: no other regime capable of running the country).
“A lot of people are anxious to determine the type of regime that is going to handle Malaysia in the coming years. They are always talking about regimes. I never talk about regimes. There is only one regime in this country that is capable of running (the country),” he said.
“People get angry with me whenever I say this (but) people don’t seem to understand the critical scenario in the country. What is it that can (take) over from the present one given the political scenario we are in?” he asked.
What kind of political scenario, may I ask? Whatever it is, unlike the EC chief, I don’t believe it is the ONLY regime who can manage this country! Come on, man…we already have idiots doing that…what can be worse?
He shows his true colours again by saying:
“I am an administrator, he is a politician. But there are a lot of times (when) we speak the same ‘language’. We go on the same wavelength as far as the country is concerned, (and on) what the country needs does not need. That one, we have to agree (on),” said Abdul Rashid.
“If we don’t agree, then we are in trouble, because I run the elections,” he added.
This two quotations sums it all for me. That we will not ever have a free and fair elections ever.
“People say that those who hold that power – to run elections – can always determine who is going to be put into power. Of course, that’s a lie, they’re bluffing. But there is also some truth in it. “The person who holds that power may be able to do a lot of things that help the country. Whatever we do in the Election Commission, the country’s interests are always above everything.”Don’t we all know it already?
This is why the Prime Minister was so eager to keep this guy on board that he was willing to disrespect the sanctity of the Parliament by arresting peaceful protestors who submitted a memo against the extension of the EC chief.
