Why fear MACC screening and Election Integrity Pledge?


In the history of Malaysia, it has never been done before and in the history of the world, Malaysia is set to be the first country to do it.  What is it? It's the Election Integrity Pledge.

Najib Tun Razak was the first Malaysian Prime Minister to sign such a pledge before a forthcoming general election.

If all BN candidates also sign the pledge after their candidatures are announced, Malaysia will be the first country in the world to do so, said Transparency International (TI) whose representatives witnessed the signing at Putrajaya.

"The positive tone from the top is an encouraging indicator of the government’s seriousness in fighting corruption and practicing good governance, "  said Paul Low, President of Malaysian Chapter of TI.



The pledge included a promise to:
  • Observe the principles of truth, integrity, ethical conduct and accountability;
  • Uphold the interests of the rakyat; and
  • Practice good governance and transparency.        

“Today we are making a further commitment to put those principles into practice by agreeing to internationally recognised standards of electoral transparency and fairness, " said Najib.



This is BN's second move to have clean candidates in GE-13. Potential candidates have already gone through a Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission screening process, to ensure they meet the high standards of integrity expected by the Malaysian public.


The issue of integrity is extremely important, said Low. He urged all candidates, regardless of political affiliation, to uphold this principle.



Will all opposition candidates also sign the pledge? The rakyat wants to know.

    Berani kerana benar, takut kerana salah. Justeru, hanya mereka yang mampu tunaikan janji akan berani membuat akujanji.

    Sebaliknya pihak yang takut membuat akujanji adalah berasakan mereka tidak mampu tunaikan janji.

    Dalam konteks integriti, hanya pihak yang benar-benar mampu meletakkan integriti di atas kepentingan diri sanggup membuat akujanji.

    Sebaliknya pihak yang tidak mampu meletakan integriti mengatasi segala-galanya akan takut untuk membuat akujanji.

    Pihak yang telah makan wang derma rakyat untuk tujuan politik (menjanjikan negara Isle dan hudud), tentunya takut untuk berikrar akan melaksanakan janji berkenaan memandangkan parti yang pasti akan muncul dominan adalah parti ant-Isle tetapi bukan parti yang menjanjikan negara isle. Dalam kata lain PRU kali ini mendedahkan banyak hipokrasi dan pembohongan!

    Islam menggalakkan integriti. Jika calun yang terdiri dari orang Islam sendiri menjauhkan diri dari menandatangani ikrar INTERITI bermakna mereka BERMASALAH.
