LadyBird Rambling Thoughts

Undi BN=Undi Dr. George Chan=Undi Najib

In my entire life, I have to say this time round of state election is an eye opener for me.
It is at this age, I begin to understand what’s going on surround me. Before, I see, I heard, I ignored as I believe politic is not my piece of cake.

Boyyyy I was wrong!

Yesterday afternoon, I received a text message.

I was shocked and at the same time, I felt offended. I felt offended as I see it as a violation to my right as a voter. 🙁

Under Malaysia Law, Akta 5, Akta Kesalahan Pilihanraya 1954, Bahagian III, Perbuatan-perbuatan Rasuah, I see the text message I received is considered as ‘Pengaruh Tidak Wajar’. Under the ‘Pengaruh Tidak Wajar’, it is stated;

9. (1) Tiap-tiap orang yang, sebelum, semasa, atau selepas sesuatu pilihanraya, secara langsung atau tidak langsung, dengan sendiri atau melalui mana-mana orang lain bagi pihaknya, menggunakan atau mengancam hendak menggunakan apa-apa kekerasan, keganasan atau halangan, atau yang mengenakan atau mengancam hendak mengenakan, dengan sendirin atau melalui mana-mana orang lain, apa-apa bencana kecacatan, kerosakan atau kerugian keduniaan atau kerohanian ke atas atau terhadap mana-mana orang bagi mendorong atau memaksa orang itu telah mengundi atau tidak mengundi, dalam mana-mana pilihanraya, atau yang dengan melarikan pemilih atau pengundi, dengan dures atau apa-apa tipu daya atau muslihat menghindar atau menahan mana-mana pemilih atau pengundi daripada menjalankan hak mengundinya dengan bebas, atau yang dengan yang dengan itu memaksa, mendorong, atau mendesak mana-mana pemilih atau pengundi sama ada memberi atau tidak memberi undinya dalam mana-mana pilihanraya, atau yang secara langsung atau tidak langsung menganggu atau cuba menganggu mana-mana orang daripada menjalankan hak pemilihannya dengan bebas adalah bersalah atas kesalahan pengaruh tak wajar.

(2) Seseorang hendaklah disifatkan sebagai menganggu seseorang daripada menjalankan hak pemilihannya dengan bebas mengikut pengertian seksyen ini jika dia mendorong atau cuba mendorong orang itu mempercayai bahawa dia, atau mana-mana orang yang mengenainya  dia mempunyai kepentingan, akan menjadi atau akan dijadikan seorang yang dimurkai Tuhan atau yang dicela kerohaniannya.

Being in the marketing line, sending text messages to prospect is one way of marketing tool. Never do I expect the same tool is used for election. I guess people nowadays are adapting with technology or in a blunt way, it was merely a desperate attempt. When the going gets tough, the tough get going!

I begin to ponder on the transparency of the election system.
I begin to ponder too on how many of us voter knows their right as a voter.
I begin to ponder whether both sides (BN component & opposition) will really deliver their manifesto to the rakyat.
I begin to ponder whether Sarawak will really go through a CHANGE.

Whatever it is, whoever rule and govern the state of Sarawak, please do not FORGET to uphold the 18 Points Agreement.

Happy Tuesday everyone. 🙂

  1. I wonder where did they get your phone number. Desperate measure calls for desperate needs and I guess they have loss other options. Next strategy would be maybe emailing you to vote for them.

  2. They get the right number while I get the wrong number….. darn… they must have hacked in my phone and changed my phonebook in the process….

  3. I got something similar to this sms too. I think it’s because our number is registered in Sarawak coz Evelyne did not receive any sms regarding the election. I received 2 same smses to both my numbers – registered in Sarawak. My dad got another kind of sms, and he laughed at it. Haha!

    1. yes i do share the same opinion-targetted group are those Sarawakian based on the registration info provided to the telco. so cunning of ’em without taking into consideration people’s privacy.
