Video ceramah Dato’ Seri Anwar dan Wee Choo Keong di Wangsa Maju

Also, here‘s what happened before I gave my speech yesterday …

Before the ceramah started, a resident came up to me with a list of problems, which have not been attended to by the MCA candidate. The issues are security in Wangsa Maju, clogged and smelly drains, flats not re-painted for many years, children’s playground too small for the 7,000 residents and they have not seen his face ever since he was elected in 2004.

After walking about and talking with the voters for the past few days, I could gather that their No.1 concern is the security and high crime-rate in Wangsa Maju.

In fact, security is one of the major issues in Malaysia now and Malaysians are very concerned with this life-endangering state of affair, which has been grossly neglected by the Barang Naik party.

I am told that only 7% of the police force was allocated for crime prevention and the rest was for crime investigation and special branch, which is to monitor the activities of the opposition parties. I dare say that 7% is far too low and it was for this reason that the crime rate in Malaysia is on the increase.

It looks like the Barang Naik administration is not interested in crime prevention and is solely responsible for the total failure of its policy in this area. And it is for this reason that Nurin was kidnapped in Wangsa Maju.

Let’s be serious about the issue of crime prevention. Now that Nurin had been kidnapped and until this day the police is still groping in the dark … let’s give this matter serious thought.

Let’s not wait until our children are kidnapped and then start taking action. It will be too late. Therefore, let’s take preventive actions by using your precious vote to vote for me, WHO SAYS WHAT HE MEANS AND MEANS WHAT HE SAYS.

My dear voters, if you elect me as your MP, fighting crime will be one of my main priorities. I will push the government to make crime prevention as one of Malaysia’s main national agenda. I will make sure parliament will hear me and take positive action. I will make sure I deliver.

Therefore, please help me to help you. I need your vote to speak for you – in and out of parliament. Thank you.

Undilah KeADILan! Vote KeADILan!

Meeting the rakyat on the ground

Wee Choo Keong was at the pasar malam at Taman Setapak on Wednesday night, 27 February 2008, to meet his constituents.

He is the Wangsa Maju parliamentary candidate under Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) in the soon-to-be-held general election this March 8. Also accompanying him was Dr. Ramzan (with flags), PKR leader for Wangsa Maju.

Syabas, yangBerkhidmat!

Media Release by Wee Choo Keong, PKR candidate for P116 Wangsa Maju

Release date: 28-02-08

Abdullah Badawi said yesterday:
“Judge BN by its track record”

In the 2004 General Elections (GE) campaign, Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi (Badawi) had pledged that fighting corruption was his first priority if he were to win the GE. The nation gave him a landslide victory.

Fighting Corruption

Soon after Badawi took office of the Prime Minister (PM), after Kasitah Adam was charged for corruption involving RM3.5 million, Badawi announced that it was one down and there were 18 more big “sharks” to go. The nation backed Badawi all the way with his call to fight corruption.

Four years passed by, and while Badawi was still having his “honeymoon,” most of these 18 big “sharks” were still swimming in Parliament until it was dissolved on 24-02-08. Malaysians laughed at the bribery charge of RM3.5 million against a minister as in the case of Kasitah Adam because it is an open secret that bribery at high places involves a few hundred million Ringgit.

How can one fight against corruption when the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) itself is corrupt. During the Royal Commission of Inquiry, Dato V K Lingam’s secretary, Ms Jeyanthi, said that an ACA officer had told her that the ACA had to close the investigation because the case involved powerful people in the BN administration and she was paid RM3,000-00 to keep ‘quiet.’ If the ACA was also involved in such corrupt activities, then Badawi’s record for fighting corruption was just another misleading and meaningless public statement that he had been known to make.

In fact, it is an open secret in Malaysian society that BN has inculcated a culture that generally if the rakyat want to get things done fast then they had to pay bribes for quick delivery. When one is stopped by the traffic police, one is expected to pay bribes otherwise one will be issued with a summons and face inconveniences. CORRUPTION HAS BECOME A WAY OF LIFE UNDER THE BADAWI’S ADMINISTRATION. IT HAS GONE FROM BAD TO WORST.

Launching of National Plans

Badawi had launched the 9th Malaysian Plan some two years ago with massive publicities in our controlled mass media. Until this very day, there has been no public debate on the 9th Malaysian Plan nor has it been put into action. It was a total failure for Badawi, as the ex-PM, for treating the 9th Malaysian Plan, a serious national agenda, as a joke and another of his publicity stunt.

I call upon Badawi to produce his record on fighting corruption since 2004 and how many of the plans and/or projects that he had announced had been implemented.

Wangsa Maju is to us Wangsa SeMaju !

UPDATE 28-02-08: Ceramah Perdana Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim bersama calon PKR Parliament Wangsa Maju – 28-02-08 (Khamis), 8.00 malam di Padang Permainan Blok A8, Seksyen 1, Wangsa Maju. Semua di jemput hadir!

UPDATE 3.44 pm: Large-scale vandalism and destruction of PKR’s posters, banners, buntings, etc. in the Wangsa Maju constituency have been noted carried out by suspected agents of Barang Naik party. We have made a police report at the Wangsa Maju police station regarding this underhanded tactic and urge the authority to take stern action and ensure fair play throughout the election campaign period. Our police report number is 00274/80.Wangsa SeMaju for all the voters.

My dear constituents,

First and foremost, let me declare P116 to be Wangsa seMaju!

Why? Because after spending quality time with you over the last 3 evenings, I have seen and felt the ‘progress’ that has already taken place in your hearts and minds.

You are sharp, smart and forward-looking than what the previous administration gives you credit for. They think bodoh and therefore they think you are like them. But they are so wrong and they insult your intelligence.

They think they can continue to divide Malaysians. They think they can continue to lie to the rakyat. They think they can continue to rape and abuse the country’s wealth for their own benefit and leave the rakyat to suffer and fend for themselves.

They think wrong! And I know you know betterand deserve better – my fellow Wangsa SeMaju voters.

You deserve recognition and respect. You deserve better representation for your voice. You deserve your share of the country’s resources and wealth that’s rightfully yours as rakyat of this constituency and country. You deserve freedom as your fundamental right.

Above all, you deserve to be heard and you deserve to be served.

And I say Wangsa SeMaju voters you will be heard, like I have been, and you will be served.

Give me your support and work with me and together let’s drive out the Barang Naik party. Let’s bring in Barisan Rakyat, with Parti Keadilan Rakyat walking and working with you.

As long as I am doing the right things and have your support, there’s nothing that we cannot achieve together to ensure our freedom and bring greater progress to this beloved place you call home.

I will not be intimidated by the police, the agents of the Barang Naik party. Remember, in a democratic society, the people should be accorded with the fundamental right of freedom of speech, assembly and movement. The Barang Naik party is only interested in paying lip service to freedom.

Wangsa SeMaju voters, always remember this: when freedom is outlawed, the outlaws are free.

So I do hope that the Barang Naik party will take note of this and stop denying the people their freedom and right. We will not accept your bully and lies. We will be unstoppable.

Thank you my dear Wangsa SeMaju voters for all your kind words, support and encouragement. I shall do my utmost to serve you in and out of Parliament – without fear or favour.

Let’s work together to get rid of

the Barang Naik party on 08 March

and make P116 into the enviable
