KUALA LUMPUR, 21 May: A 505 People’s Voice Fair ‘GE-13 Fraud Protest Assembly’ will be held on 15 May to disclose evidence of fraud in the recent 13th General Election (GE-13).
People’s Voice 505 Spokesperson, Badrul Hisham Shaharin or otherwise known as Chegubard, stressed that the fair is to find democracy which was darkened on 5 May.
It will be held peacefully at the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) Field in front of Amcorp Mall.
“We, the People’s Voice 505 have nothing to do with the Malaysian Spring. Our foundation is democracy. We hit the road to find democracy.
“Malaysia Spring is a tactical psychological war for people who fear the rise of the voices of the people,” he said in a press conference at the Chinese Assembly Hall (KLCAH).
Badrul Hisham said that the rally has nothing to do with the rumors saying that there will be a ‘Malaysian Spring’ to topple the Umno-BN Federal Government.
Badrul Hisham explained that the People’s Voice 505 will be attended by nearly 48 non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
The assembly has three main thrusts; to urge for the chairman and committee members of the Election Commission (EC) to resign for failing to manage the GE-13 transparently.
For a new EC to be established under the jurisdiction of the Parliament, and the selection of a committee with the consent of the majority of the people.
The second thrust is to hold a re-election in areas where electoral fraud is evident, regardless of which party won, be it Pakatan Rakyat or Barisan Nasional.
The third focus is to fully support the establishment of the People’s Tribunal as demanded by the Clean Coalition (BERSIH) to disclose all evidence and investigation of the GE-13 to the public.
The assembly, with black clothing as the theme, will be mobilised across the country to spread evidence of fraud which occurred on the 5th of May.
In the meantime, the Malaysian Youth Solidarity Malaysia (SAMM) also denounced the arrest of student activist, Adam Adli Abd Halim following his speech at the Malaysian Unity programme on 13th May.
“As organisers, we take responsibility for what happened.
“Adam’s statement that night should be taken in the right context and not to be misconstrued,” added Chegubard.
