Today Malaysia, Tomorrow Hong Kong

Seeing that the hope of a genuine democracy in Malaysia was shattered by corruption, Hong Kong netizens feel deeply pessimistic about the future general election, as election of the city is also fraud-stricken.

Malaysian electoral fraud was carried out under intentional power outage

According to the Facebook Page of Apple Daily,


Einex Rane: Apple Apple, I’m a Malaysian citizen. I want you to help with this matter!

Today May 5th was the Election Day. Barisan National (BN) has completely controlled the media. Even the military and police have been bribed. It can be said that my country is hopeless. On the Press Freedom Day, many radio hosts wore black shirts to protest. However, they all received disciplinary punishment. Now, in Penang State, where I live, the Opposition has won already. However, in other states, some ministers or important officials used dirty tricks in their districts: motherf**king Minister of Health, Liow Tiong Lai, lost to his opponent, Wong Tack (He’s from Democratic Action Party (DAP). We call the party “Rocket”.), who had won with more than a thousand votes. Suddenly, there was a damning power outage, changing the voting result unexpectedly – Liow won with more than 300 votes.

The Facebook page of the Malaysian internet community JBTALKS posted a photo of the voting result of Baling in which the number of votes is more than that of voters.


Number of voters: 65224

Number of votes for Democratic Action Party: 38,319

Number of votes for Barisan National: 43,503

Hong Kong netizens’ reaction


Radio host 潘小濤: Remember: Today Malaysia; Tomorrow Hong Kong!

Methods of electoral fraud in Malaysia election:  dividing voting districts, vote-planting, ghost voters, power outage, claming others’ votes, adding ballot boxes suddenly, transporting migrant voters from Bangladesh etc.

One day, even if there were general election, they would use these dirty tricks to defeat us!

Migrant voters; Ghost ballot boxes; Adding votes during power outage



Wong: Actually, in Hong Kong, there are voters who live in Mainland China and are sent to polling stations by tour buses; ghost voters…. If you are still indifferent to unfairness of election, counting votes in blackouts will eventually happen in Hong Kong.

“Everybody please share it out quickly! Klang’s police is escorting lots of migrant voters!”

Wong: Dose it sound familiar to you? In every election, buses after buses of senior citizens who have no self-will, Chinese colonists, and Hongkongers who live in China and are controlled by the Chinese government are sent to polling stations….

If the general election isn’t independent from China, it will absolutely not be a fair election. Before fighting for the general election, please fight to remove the dirty Chinese hands from Hong Kong first.


Leu: Watching Malaysia election as an outsider, I think the most important revelation is that general election hold by dictators has no moral bottom line. Today Malaysia is tomorrow Hong Kong. It doesn’t matter if the so-called general election of 2017 and 2020 has pre-election mechanism. Even if a pan-democrat could participate the Chief Executive election, would it make any difference? Tricks like “power outage and ghost votes” can be used; Bribing staffs is even easier. Even if all the Hong Kong people voted for Audrey Eu, Starry Lee would still be the Chief Executive in the end. You can do nothing about it.

Malaysia Reminded Us of Hong Kong District Council Election

Malaysian ruling party Barisan National won the election; the losing Democratic Action Party refuses to concede, accusing that there was electoral fraud such as the ruling party hired cars and planes to send “ghost voters” to polling stations. We can’t help thinking of the 2011 Hong Kong District Council election. At that time, the media revealed many cases of pro-Beijing camp’s vote-rigging: Many addresses of “vote planting” belong to CCPCC members. For instance, Maoming CPPCC member Liang Ping’s address was revealed to have 13 voters with 7 surnames; there were tour buses sending elderly voters from Mainland China to Hong Kong polling stations; CPPCC’s organisations hold meetings in Hong Kong to mobilise its members to vote for pro-Beijing camp. Officials from the Liasion Office also joined the meetings; the Liaison Office “planted” its former official to join the District Council election.

Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying(Left) and Maoming CCPCC member Liang Ping (right) had a toast in a banquet.

After the District Council election, ICAC investigated that there was no CPPCC member involved in the vote rigging scandal. Tong Hin-ming was the ICAC chief at that time. Recently, he has been revealed that he had many banquets with a lot of Liaison Office officials.

The Chief Executive set up a review committee instead of an investigation committee. The reason is that an investigation committee has the power to summon witnesses: If the committee summoned officials of the Liaison Office, would it dare to investigate them?

  1. Given that we already see corruption in the Legco elections in the form of Party-sponsored transportation and voter registration fraud, imagine what will happen when our votes actually matter.

    Vladimir Putin (either Prime Minister or President of Russia since 1999) would be proud.

  2. Instead of expressing siege mentality based on Malaysia, maybe we should look at Malaysia in an outward manner – since 1969 (read up on the May 13 riots, leaving hundreds of ethnic Chinese killed, women raped and children slaughtered), the “New Deal” there has meant ethnic Chinese – that’s our people in case you haven’t noticed – have been discriminated against in every walk of life. Property prices, school places, jobs – even Chinese women are forced to marry native Javanese men, and Chinese men forced to take Muslim surnames. Why is this not fought? Instead the Chinese are too inward looking and only give a shit about themselves

    1. Sadly, most Chinese of Southeast Asia are mostly looked upon with suspicion and fear by the natives. But,its an undeniable fact that most of the business sector is held by ethnic “Southern” Chinese folks and this is well known. Some ignorant SEA Chinese may attribute this as natives being “stupid” or “not very intelligent”, but you don’t make many friends with this attitude and thus creating a barrier of isolation. I do not agree with forced marriages, but as later generations continue living in SEA then intermarriage will happen because their lives are in SEA not in China. Again, if China is so great then why not go back and contribute to the “motherland”? S. Chinese (Hokkien, Teochew, Hakka, Canto., etc) do not have a large Muslim population in their native regions unlike Western and Northern China, thus a fundamental difference of history in the ancient past. The ancient histories of Guangdong, Hainan, and Fujian are different from the Central Plains region; and our forefathers are from the “barbaric” minorities as some Northerners may put it. Example, the Southern custom of bone reburial after 7 years is a practice followed by SEA ppl but not Northern Chinese.

      One can simply notice that the Chinese favorite meat tend to be pork, thus strong division exists within ethnic Chinese and native populations, esp. in Muslim countries. I love pork so a muslim marriage wouldn’t work for me, but if Indo Chinese or Malay Chinese continue living for more generations to come in majority Muslim countries then don’t be surprised that an extended family member will marry a native instead of a Chinese. Damn, I suggest an Indo or Malay Chinese to create a new religion to attract the natives where pork eating is allowed! China has a lot of people so its “culture” won’t die out, but with intermarriage new cultural groups (ex: peranakan) are created and a renaissance and exchange of ideas happens. The Tang dynasty was a “Golden Age” for China because it borrowed many ideas from India, Silk Road, western tribes, etc. Horses, chariots, Buddhism have origins from elsewhere. BTW, intermixing has happened through out China’s history because I may have inherited Turkic traits like wavy hair from my ancient forefathers (Xirong)!

  3. that’s why I wonder whether PRC chinese (maybe even chinese in general) are generally cowardly and won’t fight for their rights…instead protecting their livelihood, their lives…

    #HK and #TW, if you want freedom, you have to fight for your rights AND against the #CCP government
