How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Why I think the Registrar of Societies should resign

The accusation on national television channels and mainstream newspapers:

"The registrar was reported to have questioned if the opposition party was challenging the RoS’ authority or if was hiding something by delaying submitting the required documents over its party polls last December.

“Everyone knows the DAP had held a meeting and an election for its CEC. The DAP also know they must send a report and the thing is not that hard to do.

“This is nothing new. It is not as if the DAP has never held a meeting and election before. But why is it so difficult for them to send in a report this time?” he told Malay broadsheet Mingguan Malaysia, which published the news today.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein had yesterday reportedly said the RoS should start taking action against the DAP to submit the annual report on time.

He said the DAP was supposed to submit its report within 60 days after its CEC polls on December 12, which put the deadline at February 15.

“This is no different from Umno which was banned before. We’ll follow the existing law.

“We wait for the deadline and it was yesterday. RoS will take the necessary action,” Hishammuddin was quoted as saying yesterday by state news agency Bernama."

The apology after the damage done to DAP's reputation and integrity:

"The Registrar of Societies (RoS) confirmed today the DAP had sent in its central executive committee (CEC) polls report as requested ahead of the February 15 deadline and apologised for its mistake that had led to criticism of the opposition party.

Registrar Datuk Abdul Rahman Othman clarified he had received the DAP document on February 8, a week before the 60-day deadline for the annual report required of all registered societies in the country.

“Here I would like to clarify that my previous statement was based on information that was not updated and this has led to confusion,” he was reported as saying by The Star Online, based on a statement sent out after the upset DAP sent out copies of its letter to the RoS bearing the societies regulator’s stamp as proof of receipt, and dated February 8.

“RoS apologises to all parties concerned over this mistake,” Abdul Rahman added."

Shouldn't he at least appear on national television to apologise for being grossly negligent in not checking with his staff before accusing DAP? 


Anybody holding such a position should have been extra careful when making statements relating to a high profile case. I would put it as having malicious intent, especially in collusion with BN leaders who are bent on discrediting the opposition just before the General Election.

How can we trust future statements by heads of government institutions or BN leaders?
