This is some of my personal thoughts that could put me in a very dangerous position in Malaysia. Please have some moment to reflect on the oppressed expression of a tiny individual who seems helpless in acting in other ways to improve things.

Parti Rakyat Bebas

In light of the current sorry state of the country in the hands of the ruling governance of Barisan National, I would like to advice you all of the initiative to have another political party in Malaysia.

It is in the formation stage and feedbacks and admission is invited from all Malaysian resident. The name of the new party is PARTI RAKYAT BEBAS.

So far the manifesto includes:-
  • Affordable housing for the masses.
  • Efficient public transportation at lowest cost possible.
  • Free education for all at all levels.
  • New tax regime to ease burden on civil and private sectors servants (non executive / non-share holders).
  • Social and community welfare (to include benevolent and un-employment benefits, food and milk coupons, etc.).
  • Free hospitalisation and medical benefits.
  • Freedom AFTER speech which includes Free media with freedom and easy access to county's essential information.
The party is also in the process of considering the proposal provided by 'Senator' Dave 'Senduk' Chiew, which includes:-
  • Considering that all female government servants will wear only low-cut blouses and short skirts.
  • To consider having all male government servants to be be replaced with more females wearing low-cut blouses and short skirts.
  • To pass laws to make Tmnet ( and any ISPs) to allow users to log in to their ftp server using anonymous logins.
  • To provide huge grants and rewards to those propagating the spread of IT technology, especially those who constantly upload e-mags.
  • To consider request to apply to the International Tribunal to win back the island of Singapore.

Looking forward to excellent constructive feedback and numerous request for addmision for the general public at large.

Anyone to join??, or I just register another group so called "Green Earth Party"... What else, eco friendly type party.

The Workers Party already exists as Partai Pekerja-Pekerja Malaysia. Better luck next time :)

How about 'all politicians must declare assets and earnings'?

Dearest 9t9, Bob K and Simon.
Your visits and feedbacks are really appreciated.

GO ahead, you register Greeb Earth party and we will work together on common grounds, insyAllah.

Good observation. Partai Pekerja-Pekerja Malaysia became Parti Buruh, then became Parti Sosialis Rakyat Malaysia, then drop sosialis from the term, then merge with Keadilan. Now is known as Perti Keadilan Rakyat Malaysia.

Will strongly adopt ur suggestion that 'all politicians must declare assets and earnings' and will make sure representative from Parti Rakyat Bebas will shout on it, all the times at Parliament when successfully elected! By the way, it is already a requirement in current law practiced! Only the current 'big bosses' are not implementing it, for the time being!

Pray for us all!

Actually, I'm pretty certain that Partai Pekerja-Pekerja Malaysia still exists as I have met some of their perty leaders before. Granted it has never been very active.

Partai Buruh existed even before there was a Malaysia and was essentially defunct by the 1969 elections.

I suspect the pedigree should be reversed, ie. Partai Buruh then Partai Pekerja.

Parti Rakyat has an even longer pedigree; from Kaum Melayu Muda (in the pre-war period) to Kesatuan Melayu Muda (Malay Nationalist Party) in the immediate post war period. The latter decided against joining UMNO in 1946 and was declared illegal in 1948-49 with it's leaders imprisoned (yep that happened back then too).

In 1955, when the leaders were released, one formed Partai Rakyat and another PAS. By the 1964 elections, an alliance had been formed between Partai Rakyat and Partai Buruh together with a few other smaller parties as the Fron Sosialis. By 1969, there was again a lot of persecution which resulted in the incarceration of many of the older oppositionists and led to the "new" opposition that many of us are more familiar with (DAP, Gerakan etc).

In fact, after Partai Buruh was made defunct, many of it's leaders continued on in other "successor" parties like DAP, Gerakan, PEKEMAS, Parti Sosialis Rakyat Malaysia et al.

Hence, you could say they were essentially of the same side of the political spectrum but with their own unique histories and pedigrees.

Of course, with the merger of Parti Rakyat and Keadilan today, we see a third generation of party politics from the non mainstream tradition. As a former PRM member and now a PKR member, I still have the hope that we can make this nation one that we can all be proud of for the right reasons.
