PENANG, 13 FEB 2010: The Penang government has refuted claims that

Happy Chinese New Year of the Golden Tiger – make 13th general elections the great turning point for Malaysia

commentary: are you sure PR can still do well in the next GE ? MPs are leaving PR like firefly... will there still be a PR even at the eve of the 13th GE ?   


by Lim Kit Siang

I wish all Malaysians a Happy Chinese New Year.
This is the second Chinese New Year after the historic political tsunami of the March 8, 2008 general elections which witnessed a paradigm shift in Malaysian political thinking and expectations.
What were never thought of as possible in the first five decades of nationhood have become common-place and are even in danger of being taken for granted.
All eyes and thoughts are focused on the next general elections – whether the 13th general elections will complete the process prepared by the 12th general elections for Malaysia to have a new ruling coalition in the seat of federal government in Putrajaya apart from the state government level.
The next general elections, whether in 2011 or 2012, will provide answers to many intriguing questions, including:
  • Whether the most famous political prophecy, RAHMAN on the first six Prime Ministers will be fully completed with Datuk Seri Najib Razak as the last UMNO Prime Minister?
  • Whether Pakatan Rakyat will end and replace Barisan Nasional as the new national government of Malaysia?
  • Can Najib’s 1Malaysia and Malaysia.2 new economic model save him and the Barisan Nasional in the next general election?
  • Can Pakatan Rakyat emerge from the many internal problems of late to become stronger, more cohesive, disciplined and purposive to rally and unite Malaysians to form a new government to achieve Malaysia’s full potential, both in terms of human and natural resources?
These are among the issues Malaysians will ponder while celebrating the Chinese New Year of the Golden Tiger.
Let all Malaysians unite with one resolve – to make the 13th general elections the great turning point for Malaysia to embark on the road of a truly united, just, prosperous and harmonious Malaysian nation where all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or region can fully identify with and hold their heads high.
