Umno has never been as vulnerable over the last 70-over years as it is today. It had been the only dominant and domineering political party Malaysia had experienced. Its hold over Malaysia and its power to rule as it wished and pleased used to be absolute and unchallenged.
Fortunately for Malaysia, all that has clearly changed for now. Umno only has 37 MPs out of the total of 222 or 16.7% of the august legislative chamber.
Glaringly, Umno’s grip on power is slipping. And it is desperate to cling on to power and reclaim its former eminence and dominance, come what may. It is so desperate that it has lost its balance, its rationality and its sanity; it is pushing for an early election that is vehemently opposed by all thinking and well-meaning Malaysians because the risks involved during the monsoon period can be horrendous.
Umno has thrived in creating fear among the Malays and planting suspicion in their minds that their future and fortune will be taken away by the non-Malays, especially the Chinese, if they don’t rally behind Umno. Another weapon it has used very effectively is religion. It has been drumming into the Malays that the Christians are about to Christianise Malaysia.
Umno has very successfully destroyed our unity and harmony that was the hallmark of our nation during the time of our beloved Tunku Abdul Rahman – the halcyon days of tolerance and accommodation.
All that goodwill and peace that united us in the past was destroyed and replaced with hatred, suspicion, greed, intolerance and selfishness. Peaceful Malaysia was buried, and a disunited and fractured Malaysia has been created in its place.
Umno is now determined to capture its former glory by assuming that an early election will reverse its misfortune and restore power in the hands of Umno.

If this happens, Malaysia is doomed. The party will plug every loophole in the Constitution that provided a gleam of hope for the rule of law. It will probably deny every opportunity for the non-Malays to earn a decent living through fair economic competition. Malaysia will never be the same and reforms will definitely have no chance whatsoever.
In the event, we are unable to stop an early election, thinking Malaysians must come together and get rid of the corrupt Umno political party once and for all.
With Umno out of the way, it will be possible to bring back the old Malaysia that respects the rights of all Malaysians, that accords fair economic opportunity to all, that eliminates corruption at all levels, that forbids any religion from intruding into the lives of people and that ensures the judiciary will function without fear or favour.
When the rule of law prevails, everybody is equal before the law and no selective prosecution or persecution will be allowed to occur.
Umno was Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s tool to destroy all that mattered in the past. The judiciary was emasculated, the rule of law became a joke, media freedom was shackled, the opposition was hounded, corruption thrived, peaceful assemblies were banned. What we lost under him, we never recovered. Subsequently, all these became even more severely curtailed. And to this day, we are paying the price.
The time has come to put a stop to all this once and for all. There is no better time than this to get rid of Umno.
An early election would mean we would be on course for disaster. It is our collective responsibility to act to prevent this plunge into perdition. We owe a duty to this nation that is our home. It is a moral obligation to put things right and to save this country from the bigots and zealots, the corrupt and the greedy, the vile and the villain.
Let’s set the direction for this nation so that honest and decent people can live peaceful and contented lives. It was said by Noam Chomsky that “to live a life of honesty and integrity is the responsibility of every decent person”.

Yes umno will collapsed
We want Datuk Anwar Ibrahim to be our next Prime Minister..Let’s support for change and vote for PH..
This type of campaign is emotional
undemocratic and backfires. It normally misfires it wakes up drowning loyalty. Malys are in dilemma. The middle class benefitted biased privileges given by UMNO selective policies and are in better position today because of it. To call for the destuction of party by those who are outsiders is counter productive. Pursue no further. Keep exposing their wrongs. Take a leaf from Rafizi. Fight them for the votes
Another “Kali ini lah”…is on our doorstep…!
The rak’yaat is still recovering from the disaster of Covid and Lockdowns.
The end year monsoon season and possible ensuing floods is at our doorstep too! It will be a test of the grit of the rak’yaat, to make the final move, against all odds, to throw the current corrupted and wasted government for good. We owe it to ourselves to stay on course and regain our honour.
It is only right that a party that is run by corrupt and crooked leaders (and all its supporting candidates) should not be mandated to rule any more.
It is also right that the party (or its affiliates) which is fighting to put right the wrongs that are now in place should now be given the mandate to rule.
Tell dumb UMNO and the dull civil.service to stop referring to the dedicated early nation builders as non-malays.! Let’s honour, respect and collectively refer to ourselves as ‘progressive minorities’ …PROMINO
I wonder if we can bring back the days of muhibbah after the ge 15
Yes must destroy umnos aim to swindle money and corrupted team
Those are days Tengku A’ Rahman used to pay for my Chendul after Friday prayers at Sentul Masjid, this are the days as a Muslim should not buy food for non-muslims, started by Rasist
Why have Stress Too much, just throw OFF that’s giving you Stress is all good you can do UMNO
UMNO is for Malays… will protect Malays
Only the boneless ones who are lazy, and corrupt and practise racism!
I keep RM100, I give you 2 cents… happy lor
Firdaus, are u living in the dark ages or maybe you’re stuck in a time warp of your own volition! I really feel sorry for … you!
UMNO destroyed to make Msia in free corrupt. Next PAS also abolished too racist party.
BN/UMNO hv ruled tis country since “merdeka” 1957 n come to tis rot n mess, aside 22 months by PH. Every policy is virtually race-centric n judiciary will soon b in the wilderness n recently umno gathering they vowed to select AG n judges to b their own men or women. If BN/UMNO lives rakyat ‘dies’. The ‘missiles’ of rakyat must take aim at BN/UMNO.
Waiting to see UMN topple
We have to make a concerted effort to accomplish it!
The dirty tactics to hold power can’t last forever. The dirty ways to get rich never gives happiness to the whole of life, at the end God always favors those who have been cheated. Therefore if you believe in God if given the power to rule the nation do it wisely & fairly.
Writing on the wall
Am in realm of 70 yr.olds but am very concerned for the younger generation. Voters pls use your wisdom and give our country a chance to rise again after being blemishesd by self – seeking leaders using race and religion as their weapons in sheer disregard of integrity,decency and justice. God forbids.
It’s a great article that you wrote Mr Ramakrishna but I for once don’t buy it. I am one of many that left Malaysia that I knew growing up when unity was utmost and coexistence was unparalleled. It never changed in over 40 yrs since I call my current country Home. All I hear and read are words no action. As long as the Malays are easily convinced by Islamicphobia, nothing will change. Good luck in you GE15.
Malaysia menghadapi ekonomi dan pentadbiran yg amat memalukan negara jadi kita harus menolak parti2 perasuah2 iaitu BN UMNO PAS PN DAN SEANGKATANNYA kerana mereka hanya mengkayakn kroni mereka tdk pandai menguruskn negara harap2 rakyat dpt membuka minda jgn terlalu racist dan kita cuba memberi peluang kpd DSAI menguruskn negara jika tdk baik kita boleh tukar lps 5 thn nti
Amat mengaibkan negara 2 jiran
PH will lead our country after GE15 and Datu Seri Anwar Ibrahim is rightful honorable Prime Minister 10.
Let’s join hands and wipe them out once and for all before the country goes down the drains
Stop saying before goes down the drain – It IS ALREADY DOWN THE DRAIN!
Malaysia is already in the drain. Let’s help rescue her like you would help a puppy stuck in the big monsoon drain!
Umno sda tdk relevan mentadbir malayasia dgn skandal rasuah yg mana memalukan dunia luar. Pru pda kli ini Umno harus dan mesti di tukar. Kita tdk mahu pemimpin rasuah.
60 tahun UMNO menindas bukan saja China dan India, tetapi orang 2 Melayu sendiri! Renong 2 dan fikir 2 lah!
Umno the Cancerous Disease of Racial Disharmony n Distoryer of the Country’s Economy must be buried for good, including the Racist PAS.
The open declaration by the President of Umno, in implicating the potential corruption Court cases against the BN component parties’ Presidents.
Thus far has proven beyound a reasonable doubt the multitude of corruptions committed during BN’s 60 years reigns over M’sia.
Kita nak betul kerja dan jaga Malaysia punya pemimpin. Bukan pencuri atau penipu. Kita tak kesah which race to take care. The most important is, we want back our maju.
Malaysia is strong country, kenapa our currency now drop untill USD1=RM4.XX-RM5?
Malaysian, bumi or Non bumi, please wake up. We don’t want one day when we old, or another 10-20 years only we or our next generation was the one who face it.
They are good actor, and selling our country. End of the day, Malaysian bumi or non bumi also are the one who need paid thier the debt.
When ONE DA1 whole chicken need rm80 to buy then only realise… Why our living expenses so high? Because, we choose the wrong leader. They not maju our country, but de grade.
Wiping Out The DEMONS UMNO in this GE15 is the DREAM of All Right Thinking Malaysians….
Well analysed. We need to lay it down in simple terms for the simple minds to comprehend for the sake of our children and our children’s children especially to those at the outskirts who are devoured by those treacherous devils who tore our trust n belief at Sheraton just because some of us gave them the minority to crossover n fill the gap to willfully gain Putrajaya … and lo n behold to revive their fangs against the wishes of the Common n God fearing ppl.
Enough is enough. Dig to the roots and throw the Satans to the deepest hell forever NOT for just 1 or 2 terms only to scheme comebacks n ruin the much gained UNITY. Look around our neighbours, Singapore n Indonesia, the strides they have made n left us behind.
they must be wiped out tis ge15
Definitely must stop 🛑 from taking not even a single coin they have robbed all the citizens cash
Yes, they must be wiped out this GE15.
Why destroy? We want this country to be ruled by indigenous Malays and not immigrants who wants to claim bumi rights because they are born here.
Stupidity has it’s limits.
Hellboy, we want our country maju saja. They are stealing, selling our country and seek for thier own benefit only but not majukan Malaysia. If you are the good leadership, you also can be the leader one day. We don’t care Malay or which race to takecare. As long as the one who really can take well care and maju the country.
Can you face one day 1 whole chicken sell Rm80?
Can you face the fact one day Malaysia ringgit same rate as Rupiah?
Can you face one day, you can not with your love one, but force to work at oversea to survive your own family member?
THEN YOU ARE WELCOME TO CHOOSE THEM.
You absolutely warranted urself the name
Probably , most of our cabinet members from ruling party made up of with low education standards
Give a way to youngster …every election is the same corrupted face
GE15 – We have the chance to take the much needed action. Cut out the cancerous tissues in Malaysia. Umno is like a parasite. Do not let this parasite gain a foothold again. Destroy Umno for the betterment of all Malaysians. Dont let Umno use race to divide us. Umno is all about lining their leader’s pockets. Umno is about emptying our pockets to line their pockets.
DO NOT VOTE FOR UMNO!
Malaysia has come to the moment of truth. Malaysian must face reality and not pretentiously lying to the future of our children and nation, we owe our children by handing over the country to them. Malay, Indian, Chinese, Serawakian and Native of this land is now or we are totally lost. Don’t vote because they say they are gong to do things to make it better, we have given them 60 over years to prove and finally the truth were stolen, wealth and life of this nation are all lost. Vote tell the Thieves n Pirates of umno and BN is over, we are taking back mother land for betterment of our children future. We want it back. Justice and love of this nation must prevail in this land where once known as loving people once walk not racist n hatred.
Need to put a stop to this 60 over years of malaysia wealth robbery once and for all
Get the corruption cleared once and for all
Let UMNO rest for 5 years otherwise they will never review themselves and forever being arrogant. Self-reviewing for UMNO in 5 years to come.
For the love of the nation you’re thinking of giving them 5 years? For what?! They have had 60 years – what have they done but curi the people, your children children’s AND your future. I say bury them properly this time!
Every person has their strengths and weaknesses. Just like the cells, tissues and organs in our body, making up of different races, communities, beliefs when working together being interdependent will create the integrated functional harmonious entity. Some political parties and groups are spreading their ameobic destructive ideology for their own interests like Cancerous cells and tissues, thus if they win will be the end of the entity. We should get rid of them, we can save MALAYSIA. This is time to undergo INTERMITTENT FASTING. Deprive those corrupts, kleptocrats, parasites, by depriving them of the Vote in PRI15, so we can rejuvenate our beloved country.
As long as Sarawak GPS remain unthoughful, you can dream to the grave for government change
Is time to let UMNO rest well .
Well written and I hope all that we wished for come true
Hopefully the young generation in the Malay community will understand what was happening in the past! We need those young educated generation to open their eyes and make the right choices to change Malaysia once it for all . All politicians around the world are almost the same “lier”.
I fully agree as it’s proven all these many years the cheaters were the Malays from UMNO / BN cheating the Malays total barrel in the name doing everything for the Malays now Pagar makan rumput hijau khas … di makan Oleh penjaga nya PAGAR ….UMNO / BN.
An insane man. I am sure that he has had recieved benefits from the Malays’ otherwise he won’t continue staying in this country.
Been a former Malaysian and now a citizen of Australia, it is sad to see the same cliche is still strong in Malaysian political powers. It was the reason for denouncing my Malaysian identity. Corruption, judicial system that is weak and can be bought at any price and voters who can’t decide. Borrowed money from foreign countries been syphon for personal gain. Debt that is growing by the day and citizens left to clear the mess
Wake up, Malaysians. Its either now or never. Get rid of this scurge called UMNO. it is the root to all that is Malaysia today. They say Pen is mightier than the sword..use it at your next GE. Make a stand, that enough is enough.
The choice is in your hand. Good luck Malaysia 👍
You went from the pot to the frying pan… Australia is now a police state. Forced vaccinations and gang up with US to cause WW3 against China. Well done
