Pakatan Rakyat Grand Finale Ceramah @ Stadium Petaling Jaya, Kelana Jaya | 4 May 2013

I apologise for this late post. Initially I didn't have the mood to put the pictures up thanks to our country's 'magic show' elections. Once the lights go off, 'magic' happens.

Ever seen an uncle wear PAS merchandise? Well, you've seen one now !

This is one of the first times I've seen Rajiv's more 'aggressive' side on stage. Rajiv won Bukit Gasing with 21,168 votes and a majority of 15,842. He is a very hardworking person. Two hours ago, (at 930 pm!), he stated on facebook - Rushing to assess the situation in seksyen 5 where it is reported that a tree fell on a car.

 Yeo Bee Yin triumphed in Damansara Utama with 37,303 votes and a majority of 30, 689. Shortly after her win, she shared 'Thanks to all Damansara Utama voters for your support. I'll serve this nation and you with great diligence'.

Hannah Yeoh of Subang Jaya retained her constituency of Subang Jaya with 40,36 votes. She had 28,069 more votes than her BN opponent.

 There were not enough chairs for everyone, so most just stood or sat down on the floor /grass for the whole session.

 Wong Chen of PKR won Kelana Jaya with 56, 790 votes and a majority of 28, 827. His trademark 'Harry Potter' style spectacles are here to stay.

 Elizabeth Wong won Bukit Lanjan with a 17,200 majority vote. 25,808 Malaysians voted for her.

 66,268 voted for Sivarasa Rasiah from PKR. He won with a majority of 26, 719 votes.

Tony Pua won the Petaling Jaya Utara parlimentary constituency with 57,407 votes and a majority of 44,672. It is the second largest majority win for the 13th general election.
Sekali lagi, saya dengan penuh rendah hati mengucapkan terima kasih kepada semua pengundi Petaling Jaya Utara (PJU) yang telah memberikan sokongan yang cukup tinggi kepada saya dan juga rakan-rakan saya di kawasan negeri Kg Tunku - Lau Weng San dan Damansara Utama - Bee Yin Yeo. Kemenangan majoriti sebanyak 44,672 undi di PJU adalah kedua tinggi seluruh Malaysia untuk kerusi Parlimen dan 30,689 undi di Damansara Utama adalah tertinggi untuk kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri. Sekali lagi, ribuan terima kasih dan semoga kita berjaya mencapai perubahan dalam perjalanan perjuangan yang akan datang!

Gobind Singh did well in Puchong with 62,938 votes and a 32, 802 majority.

At the end of the ceramah, it was estimated that more than 50,000 attended. What an awesome turnout.

Despite failing to conquer Putrajaya, the Pakatan Rakyat candidates of Selangor have much to be thankful for. They prevailed even though Najib pledged to return Selangor to Barisan. I am sure they will do their best to serve the rakyat for the next 5 years.


Today, Umno's utusan posed the question 'Apa lagi Cina mahu?' (What more do the Chinese want?). I think the question should be rephrased to 'What more do Malaysians want?' By blatantly blaming the political results on a 'chinese tsunami', they are sweeping more serious issues under the carpet - the failure to provide free and fair elections, allegations of corruption, so on and so forth. Furthermore, how could DAP candidates have an overwhelming victory in their constituencies if Chinese voters only constitute less than half of the residents?

I hereby end with a summary from the new york times:
It must be clear to Najib that to woo the Chinese he would have to take more serious steps than participate in the kind of events the National Front's corporate allies held for two Chinese constituencies before the elections -- a performance by South Korean rapper PSY and a dinner with Bond actress Michelle Yeoh.
