Chin Huat of Engage says he is prepared to pay the RM1,000 fine for breaking the embargo on the redelineation report if Dewan Rakyat Speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia changes his mind. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Farhan Nazmi, March 27, 2018.
THE offer made by a member of electoral reform pressure group to pay RM1,000 for breaking the embargo on the redelineation report was declined.
Wong Chin Huat of Engage said he had met with Dewan Rakyat Speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia's secretary Ali Zulfakar Zainal who said what he did had nothing to do with the Parliament.
"Ali declined my offer and said that it has nothing to do with the Parliament (as I did it outside the Parliament), hence the question of a fine doesn't arise.
"I thanked him and am prepared to pay if the speaker changes his mind. I was accompanied by two parliamentarians, Sim (Tze Tzin) from Bayan Baru and Teo (Yu Keng) from Miri," said Wong in a statement today.
Wong said the breaking of the embargo will send a strong signal to Malaysians to defeat gerrymandering by turning out to vote.
"Malaysia's future should be decided by all her 14.8 million voters, and not seven members of the Election Commission.
"The last time we let seven other EC members decide this country's fate in 2003, we paid the price in 2013 when the people's votes cannot decide which parties form the government," he said.
Earlier today, the group said it will upload the embargoed redelineation report on its website.
Wong said the report is crucial for Malaysians to read, saying that what is being done in the redelineation process is not right. – March 27, 2018.
Yes, all M'sians should turn up and VOTE - vote Umno/BN out of POWER!
