The Day After...

After the euphoria of victory, I am sure it will be the talk of the nation for another couple of days. But reality actually sunk in right after the victory that the nation is still pretty much in the grip of BN when the EC ruled that the post victory press conference cannot be held in the counting hall as was done in the past. To top it off, Anwar's personal bodyguards were too overzealous in protecting their subject. Well, maybe they were paid to do a job and they are trying to keep up with it. HERE.

Excerpts from Malaysiakini.

However, the group of about 100 local and foreign journalists later found themselves in an embarrassing situation when the EC officials asked - and even escorted them - to leave the hall.

PKR media coordinator Ginie Lim's attempts to make arrangement with the EC for a press conference to be held in the hall also failed.

The EC officials insisted that no press conference should be held there although the hall was the only suitable area for the media session to be held at the counting centre.

In the past, such as during the 2004 and 2008 general elections, all such post-victory press conferences were held in counting halls.

Never mind that, UMNO's Information Chief.. yeah.. the one that cannot read English gave his piece here.

He immediately dished out a host of excuses why they lost, amongst which, blah blah blah.. underdogs.. blah blah blah.. choice of candidate was contested.. blah.. blah.. upcoming Assembly... blah blah.. Anwar contested at hometown.. blah.. blah.. while as expected Najib claim the morality of democracy being still alive... duh.. what else is new?

Funnily, the other BN component parties were utterly.... SILENT on the whole matter. It was more of UMNO v PKR or rather Najib v Anwar and Najib lost big time.

BN should know by now that, sodomy does not work.. no amount of swearing by Saiful on any book will work... and if they ever harbour hopes of winning any by-election make sure they do not send in the monkey that wants to bury the opposition. Sure too, they should send in their phantoms earlier and not to send them on UMNO registered busses.

Now for EC to do the right thing and for the Speaker of Dewan to ensure that Anwar gets to be sworn in at the earliest date possible. Any further "delays" is not recommended.

A good reason to celebrate Merdeka? This is it folks!!! Not optimistic... but HOPEFUL.

Nice feel, eh!

Arrived late to office today coz of those national day rehearsal..

No stressful moment coz of the euphoria. Boy! I really missed this feeling since March 8th..

Upon reaching the office, i saw many smiling faces of all races.. Many giving me the thumb up sign as i passed them.

This awareness program is working well. Indeed, a stimulating factor for me to keep on blogging..

Another Big task ahead to bring people from the East to jump on this bandwagon.

I don't have the flair but I ll contribute and do it my way.

Lets not waver.

Congratulation to The People..
