Bersih: Muhyiddin trying to instigate fear

 | June 6, 2012

Bersih 2.0 steering committee says the DPM is wrong in saying that there will be chaos after GE13.

PETALING JAYA: Bersih 2.0 today reminded Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin to remain focused on electoral reforms and ensure the 13th general election is “clean, free and fair”.

“As an elected representative and deputy prime minister, Muhyiddin should instead fulfill his responsibilities and focus his attention and energy on more important issues of electoral reforms and taking steps towards ensuring the 13th general elections are clean, free and fair.

“The huge turnout at Bersih 3.0 was a call for a fair electoral process. We remind the DPM that his role as an elected representative and minister is first and foremost to serve the needs of Malaysians, and not to advance his personal nor his party‚Äôs political agenda,” said the committee in a statement.

Bersih 2.0 said this in reaction to Muhyiddin who claimed on Saturday that the steering committee along with opposition alliance, Pakatan Rakyat, wanted to topple the BN through violent means after the 13th GE.

Days earlier, former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad also wrote about the conspiracy on his blog.

The steering committee also dismissed the conspiracy theory hatched by Mahathir and Muhyiddin.

“Bersih 2.0 views the conspiracy theory hatched by Mahathir and supported by Muhyiddin that Bersih 2.0 intends to topple the government through chaos after the 13th general election as malicious and misleading.

“We question their intentions in hurling such wild allegations against Bersih 2.0 and attempting to instigate fear amongst the public,” said the steering committee.
