Inadequate Transparency Prevalent

Political parties of the governing coalition who hold the true reins of power in this country, and they abuse it to their full benefit.

A shocking lack of awareness among the public on just how much trouble our political parties are causing, and most cursing on the gathering of "Bersih" as causing chaotic in the country. It's solely a coalition demands Clean & Fair election, and don't be surprise to witness havoc during the gathering. If i were those who opposing "Bersih", i'll plant in bad seeds among protesters to create chaos. As simple as that, corruption and inadequate transparency prevalent in Malaysia.

Lack of transparency, lack of Freedom to information, lack of freedom to peace gathering. Are we still talking about democracy?

On recent week, i was with a group of Young Student Bodies to run a survey for Gebeng residents. Most of the residents are family members of factory workers at Heavy Industry Gebeng. Living under the sky of chemical pollution, they were left without a choice. 90% of Gebeng residents against the operation of Lynas, when they were probed whether if they'd consider about moving house, they poked back to me "Where else can i go? We bought the house at Bumiputera rate of RM 25,000. where else can we get RM25k houses?" i silenced.

Housing Bumiputera Rate is to help the low income group, it was suppose to overcome the poverty gap, for them to afford a home to shelter their souls. And many have misuse the benefit, especially with Bumiputera Rate, the rich gets richer when they can afford more houses in downtown, and poor getting poorer when the house they bought in rural area don't appreciate much in value. Bumiputera rates is to help the poor Bumiputera, does it really helping? but how about poor Indian, Chinese or minorities?

Wasn't it time to revamp the plan to "Housing Rates for Low Income group" instead of "Bumiputera"? By the way, obviously indigenous people are the only Bumiputera, and many have lost their home to Bakun Dam.

Due to some inadequate transparency in land issue, my family was about to lost my ancestor home too. My grandfolks' beautiful settlement.

a governing bodies lack of
transparency, integrity, social responsibility
that had caused its citizens suffered in Pain.

so, are you ready to revamp Malaysia?
Counting down in 12 days! BERSIH 2.0!!!
