Treachery Has Its Price

In the case of the two PKR defectors what voters are wanting to know is what that price was.  What does a tiny majority cost? And is this a sign that Moo, shamed by the public statements by the Agong, is about to hold a session of Parliament?  Despite, of course, his claim that it is unsafe to do so during the Covid emergency.

Many Malaysians will once more be revolted by the buying and selling of votes. PKR should announce now that, when elected to power,they will legislate to ban this disgusting and anti-democratic process. For far too long crooked politicians have been able to disregard the result of elections by buying over the despicable; usually with stolen public money.

It has to stop and stop NOW.
