MP Kit Siang urges those involved in the coup to respect the people’s mandate on May 9, 2018

Media Statement by DAP MP for Iskandar Puteri Lim Kit Siang in Gelang Patah on Tuesday, 25th February 2020:

Who will believe that the 42 BN MPs and 18 Pas MPs now support Pakatan Harapan GE14 Manifesto and the arrest and trial of Najib and former top BN leaders – and if so, will they make such a declaration?

Parliament is scheduled to meet on March 9th, which also marks 21 months from the historic decision of Malaysian voters on May 9, 2018, when the world sat up and noticed that Malaysia can lead the world in renewing hope in democracy when for over a decade in the world, democracy had been in retreat losing out to autocratic and kleptocratic regimes.

But will there be a Pakatan Harapan Government by March 9, 2020, or Malaysians and the world will observe another Malaysian infamy, ignominy and iniquity, where the historic decision of May 9, 2018 to Save Malaysia from the fate of a failed, rogue and kleptocratic state will be hijacked and perverted by a back-door government, using the name of Pakatan Harapan to kill Pakatan Harapan, and to justify not only the reversion to a global kleptocracy but even worse, the advent of a kakistocracy where the worst, the most unscrupulous and the most unprincipled elements of society occupy the high offices of state  in the nation?

In introducing the Pakatan Harapan 14th General Election Manifesto, the Buku Harapan, the Pakatan Harapan Chairman Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad on 8th March 2018 said:

“This book contains Pakatan Harapan’s promises to the people of Malaysia on the steps we will take when we become the government.

“These are the policies and actions that we will implement to give this country the treatment that it needs, to REBUILD THE NATION and to FULFIL THE HOPE of the people.

“On behalf of everyone in Pakatan Harapan, with humility and in full submission to Allah SWT, I offer ourselves to shoulder the heavy responsibility of saving the country.

“We appeal to the people to give us a chance to showcase our abilities and to help the country.

“With the publication of this book, we also humbly pledge that we are willing to be judged by the people on how far we fulfil our promises when we are in government.
“If we fail or if we break our promises, by all means reject us in the next general election.”

Are Malaysians now suddenly to believe, for instance, that the 42 Barisan Nasional  MPs (39 UMNO, 2 MCA and 1 MIC) and 18 PAS MPs now support Pakatan Harapan 14GE Manifesto and the arrest and  trial of Najib and former top BN leaders – and if so, will they make such a declaration?

Will they now also declare support for the Malaysian Citizens’ Declaration of 4th March 2016 which declared for

a) The removal of Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak as the Prime Minister of Malaysia through non-violent and legally permissible means;

b) The removal of all those who have acted in concert with him;

c) A repeal of all the recent laws and agreements that violate the fundamental rights guaranteed by the Federal Constitution and undermine policy choices and

d) A restoration of the integrity of the institutions that have been undermined, such as the police, the MACC, Bank Negara and the PAC;

Are they now in support of the Citizen’s Declaration’s call on “all Malaysians, irrespective of race, religion, political affiliation, creed or parties, young and old”, to “save the nation and pave the way for much needed democratic and institutional reforms, and to restore the important principle of the separation of powers among the executive, legislature and judiciary which will ensure the independence, credibility, professionalism and integrity of our national institutions”?

Isn’t the toppling of the Pakatan Harapan Government and the hijacking and perversion of  Pakatan Harapan Agenda for a New Malaysa the work of traitors, an unforgivable betrayal of the trust and mandate of the voters of Malaysia who had voted for a New Malaysia on May 9, 2018?

I am shocked by those involved in the hijacking and perversion of the Malaysian people’s mandate of May 9, 2018.

Apart from the ringleaders, I urge all who had been involved to remember and respect the solemn and courageous mandate of the people for a New Malaysia on May 9, 2018, to desist at the brink of the precipice and to return to the path of honesty, principle, trust and responsibility to defend the Pakatan Harapan Agenda so that the Pakatan Harapan Government could discharge its mandate of a New Malaysia.

谁会相信现有的42位国阵和18位伊党国会议员支持希望联盟的第14届全国大选宣言,以及逮捕并审判纳吉和前国阵高层领袖?如果是,他们会发表这样的声明吗?

国会定于3月9日举行会议。当天也标志着从马来西亚选民于2018年5月9日作出历史性的决定,已经过了21个月。当时,全世界对于马来西亚可以引领世界为民主重振希望感到惊讶,因为在十多年中,民主一直在退缩,输给了专制和盗贼统治的政权。

可是,到2020年3月9日,有的是一个希望联盟政府,还是大马人民和世界将见证另一个马来西亚的污名、骂名和恶名?2018年5月9日为了把马来西亚从失败、流氓和盗贼统治国家的命运拯救出来所作的历史性决定,将被后门政府骑劫并走上歧路。他们将以希望联盟的名义杀害希望联盟,不仅为全球盗贼统治的回归辩护,更甚的是导致恶人国家的到来。 到时候,社会上最恶劣、最无良和最无原则的人,将占据着国内的政府高职。

2018年3月8日,在推介希望联盟的第14届全国大选宣言《希望之书》时,希望联盟主席敦马哈迪医生说:

“这本书包含了希望联盟对马来西亚人民的承诺,即我们执政后将采取的步骤。
“这些是我们将执行的政策和行动,以处理我国所需,并重建国家和实现人民的希望。
“我谨代表希望联盟的每一个成员,以谦卑的态度并全心全意地服从阿拉,我们愿意承担拯救国家的沉重责任。
“我们呼吁人民给我们机会展现我们的能力并帮助国家。
“随着本书的出版,我们也虚心地保证,当我们执政时,我们愿意接受人民的评价,检视我们实现了多少承诺。
“如果我们失败或违背诺言,下届全国大选一定要拒绝我们。”

马来西亚人民现在会突然相信现有的42位国阵国会议员(巫统39位、马华2位和国大党1位)与18位伊党国会议员会支持希望联盟的第14届全国大选宣言,以及逮捕并审判纳吉和前国阵高层领袖?如果是,他们会发表这样的声明吗?

他们现在也会宣布支持2016年3月4日发表的马来西亚公民宣言吗?该宣言宣告:

a)通过非暴力和合法的途径革除拿督斯里纳吉作为马来西亚首相的职位;

b)革除所有与拿督斯里纳吉同流合污的人;

c)废除近期订立的所有违反联邦宪法所保障的基本权利并破坏政策选择的法律和协议;

d)恢复廉正受到破坏的机构,例如警方、马来西亚反贪污委员会、国家银行和国会公共账目委员会。

他们现在是否支持《公民宣言》的呼吁,即“所有马来西亚人,不分种族、宗教、政治派别、信仰或政党,无论老少,都要拯救国家,为亟需的民主和体制改革铺平道路,恢复行政、立法和司法三权分立的重要原则,以确保国家机构的独立、信誉、专业和廉正”?

推翻希望联盟政府以及劫持和颠覆希望联盟的新马来西亚议程,不是叛国者的行为吗?那不是对在2018年5月9日投票支持新马来西亚的马来西亚选民的信任和委托,所做的不可原谅的背叛吗?

对于那些参与劫持和颠覆马来西亚人民2018年5月9日所赋予的委托的人,我感到震惊。

除了元凶,我敦促所有参与其中的人,记住并尊重人民于2018年5月9日为了新马来西亚所付托的庄严和勇敢使命,悬崖勒马,并回归于诚实、原则、信任和责任的道路上,捍卫希望联盟的议程,以便希望联盟政府可以履行其为了新马来西亚而被赋予的委托。
