Malaysians expected to punish BN in GE13 for its corrupt ways
Berita Harian Singapore’s news crew interviewing Chua on his thoughts on Malaysia’s current political scenario.
MASAI (Feb 12, 2013): Johor PKR chairman Chua Jui Meng says Malaysians are today more wary of Barisan Nasional (BN)’s corrupt ways and are expected to punish it at the coming 13th General Election (GE13).
“Corruption is so blatantly open for all to see and yet the enforcement authorities like the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and police are doing nothing about the millions and billions of ringgit being plundered by BN leaders.
“The Information Communications Technology (ICT) has kept the people more informed to make the right decision. I am confident of that,” he told a Berita Harian Singapore news crew today.
Chua, who is also PKR vice-president, said land grab would be an issue close to Johoreans and the majority of Malay land owners have had their land “seized” by the BN government using the oppressive and cruel Land Acquisition Act since 1992.
He said land grabs were rampant in Johor the past decade because of Singaporeans’ demand for high-end property.
Asked about the chances of PR making it to Putrajaya and toppling Johor BN, Chua said: “It’s certainly tough but we will fight the electoral battle all the way until BN is out.”
Chua was approached for an interview by the Berita Harian news crew at the Johor Land Issue Forum: Problems And Solutions.
The forum at the Li Garden Hotel ballroom was attended by about 800 Johoreans including 100 Orang Asal Seleta today.
