Human Rights Watch Fears Malaysians Will Not Get A Fair Vote

An international human rights group said Wednesday it fears Malaysians will not get a fair vote in this week's general elections because of an uneven playing field favoring the ruling National Front coalition.

New York-based Human Rights Watch urged Malaysia to eradicate bias from the electoral process. Opposition and activist groups say the process is rife with irregularities.

Malaysian law minister Nazri Abdul Aziz denied the allegations, accusing Human Rights Watch of discrediting the elections because "they know the National Front will win."

"To me, Human Rights Watch is biased. They are not important at all. It's only their opinion," he told The Associated Press.

***** As long as chaps like Nazri are around (and there are plenty of his type in Umno), Human Rights Watch's fears or for that matter anyone's doubts and complaints won't bother the government. They will tout this election as they have done earlier ones as a 'good example of Malaysia's vibrant democracy' in action.

Everyone in Malaysia knows that the 12th GE will not be fair. Noone in Malaysia can do anything about it.

Now Malaysians have one good reason NOT TO VOTE FOR BN! For those who are not convinced and still think that BN are angels, be convinced now that they are CHEATS.
