Bersih 4 rally a no-confidence vote against Najib

Bersih 4 rally a no-confidence vote against Najib, says leader

The Bersih 4 rally at the end of the month will be like a vote of no-confidence against Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s leadership, Bersih 2.0 chairman Maria Chin Abdullah said last night at the launch of its latest campaign for reforms amid a financial scandal implicating the prime minister.

While aimed at pressuring Najib to step down, Bersih 4 from August 29 to 30 will also tell people that replacing the prime minister will not change anything if the current political system remained, she added.

“Bersih 4 is a 34-hour peaceful gathering for the first time in Malaysian history and it is a vote of no confidence against Najib.

“Bersih 4 demands not only for a clean prime minister and government, but we also want a clean political system that gives birth to a clean prime minister and government.

“Bersih 4 is the manifestation of the people’s voice to call for a vote of no confidence against Najib. This is the voice of the people to strenghten parliamentary democracy,” she said at the launch of the rally in Petaling Jaya last night.

The launch saw song performances, sketches and speeches. National laureate A. Samad Said read his poem entitled “Bersih Empat” while the organisers also introduced their medical, security and monitoring teams who will be on standby during the overnight rally.

The rally will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching, as well as major cities worldwide.

The event at Dataran Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur will be a 34-hour sit-in to demand for reforms such as clean elections, a corrupt-free government, the right to protest, strengthening parliament democracy and saving the economy.

Maria said changing the prime minister would not solve anything without major reforms to institutions and the political system.

“If our political system does not change, it doesn’t matter who takes over from Najib, whether it is Muhyiddin or Zahid or another person, another 1MDB and PKFZ will continue,” she said, referring to the debt-ridden state investor 1Malaysia Development Bhd and the Port Klang Free Zone scandal.

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was sacked as deputy prime minister after openly questioning Najib over 1MDB. He was replaced by Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is also the home minister, in a Cabinet reshuffle on July 28.

“If his replacement is stubborn, we will have more rallies,” she added.

She said the rally was not meant to topple the government, but was a rejection of a corrupt political system that gave rise to corrupt leaders.
