Election Rally (1 ) 竞选集会
The main stream media, newspapers and television stations, are flooded with governement (means Barisan Nasional) propaganda, praising Najib of his every move and action, highlighting his achievement, telling people to be grateful to the BN government for peace and prosperity it brought for the past 56 years. People are fed up with the rhetoric.
No mention of corruptions, abuse of power and wastage of people's money.
Everything about oppositions is bad and negative.
I don't watch local television news programme anymore.
People are forced to turn to the alternatives - online news portals, social media and open rallies. Control of mass media is a double sided sword, it works against the ruling coalition too.
I attended my first election rally of the season last night. It was an opposition rally organised by the Pakatan ( Oppostion coalition of DAP, PAS and Keadilan)
The rally was held at a covered basketball court at Sg Chua New Village attended by about 800 villagers.
Tan Kok Wai (MP Cheras, Vice-Chairman DAP)
Cikgu Lee (State Assemeblyman Kajang)
Lim Li Ying (MP Segambut, KL)
Teo Nie Ching (MP Serdang)
Lin Cai Yao ( Candidate for Sibu parliamentary)
Ronnie Liu (State Assemblyman Pandamaran, Kelang)
Subjects and issues brought up mostly were familiar and concerning corruptions and abuses of BN government, economy and security of the country.
Each speaker has his/her own style and charisma.
Teo Nie Ching, a.k.a Chili Padi, was most eloquent and charismatic. She spoke in fluent Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin.
I will attend more rallies, including BN and MCA during this election season.
人民被迫转向别的代替 - 网际新闻，社交媒体及公众集会，来得到更准确及广泛的讯息。媒体的控制，对国阵政府来说，是一支双刃剑，自己也会受害。
