In the run-up to the 13th GE, ground intelligence reports suggested that, subject to one important condition, opposition could win 12-14 of the 25 parliamentary seats in Sabah. That one all-important condition? Straight contests in all the constituencies. Government servants, uniformed personnel and small time businessmen dependent on small government contracts had to see and […]

A  little over a week after the Save Malaysia initiative and the People’s Declaration had been officially announced, I was invited to attend a forum at the KLSCAH organised by activists who had concerns about this latest initiative. I, too, had concerns, and so I said I would attend, not to speak, but to hear out […]

Maria Chin Abdullah of Bersih 2.0 has come out and publicly said to Pakatan Rakyat : No  seat increase. Tindak Malaysia has publicly said the same.
