EC must call for GE13 re-election

Which is more important and critical in a democratic nation, a General Election or a political party election? From what we observed in this nation, political party like Umno and its component BN parties have been postponing their party elections due to an impending GE13 hovering between last quarter of 2011 to 2013. This indicates that General Election is more important and critical that over rides any matters in a political party.

The overwhelming perception is that the laws of this nation can be manipulated, misrepresented and realigned to suit those in power. As they are only perceptions we will not take them as face value and assume that no one is above the law and those in power are acting accordingly and abide by the law.
"RoS acted on the complaints of several disgruntled members who claimed the December election was not properly conducted after the party announced that a tabulation glitch had resulted in the wrong candidate being elected to the CEC." reported by The Malaysian Insider
Accordingly, RoS must have investigated the matter and came to the conclusion that DAP must hold a re-election. Their conclusion is not transparent without providing what exactly DAP has done wrong to insist that they hold a re-election but just base on complaints from a handful of members and an unverified anonymous handbook.

We take it that RoS is a government agency with integrity and are following procedures according to the law of this country whereby party elections are deemed void when a handful of members make complaints to them without any real proof of wrong doings. We conclude that this kind of action by RoS is acceptable by the government and applies to all other agencies that deal with elections.

From this RoS/DAP episode, we must insist the Election Commission calls for GE13 re-election. The complaint of fraud, bribery, unfair playing field, bias MSM...etc from voters regarding GE13 are thousands of times bigger than the handful of party members complaining against DAP election. Coupled with that there are evidences provided, police reports being made and not to mention the just concluded 'Tribunal Rakyat' providing details that GE13 was not conducted in a clean and fair manner.

Since the General Election is more important and critical than political party election the Election Commission should follow RoS integrity and honesty of running an agency which acts decisively and call for GE13 re-election now.
