DPM: Bersih 3.0 precursor to post-GE chaos

Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin supports a theory offered by former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad, that Pakatan Rakyat would hold violent demonstrations should they lose the next general election.

He claimed that Bersih 3.0 was unnecessary, because the authorities had allegedly made various attempts to improve the electoral system. 

"Why do they still organised Bersih 3.0 after all these? Maybe Mahathir is right, (the opposition) did not get the support as they expected, so they tried to paint a bad picture of the government.

"I believe this is a psychological warfare. They spread the allegations that our electoral system is not clean, instigate the rakyat, so that once we win they can declare the election as illegitimate.

"And they will mobilise the people to go to the street to topple the government, like what happened in the Middle East," he said.

Mahathir had first raised the issue in a blog post on May 4, where he postulated the Pakatan would organise Arab Spring style demonstrations to topple BN after the next general election, on grounds that the polls were rigged.
Civil servants 'served us'
Meanwhile, commenting on the recent trend by former top civil servants to join or ally themselves with opposition parties, Muhyiddin said they should not have disowned the government.

"Even if they are not satisfied with the government, it shouldn't get to the point where they have to abandon us," he said.

When asked whether this is due to the lack of opportunities given by the government to the particular individuals, Muhyiddin disagreed.

"They were once the top post bearers in the government they served," he said.

The DPM was likely referring to figures such as former Bukit Aman crime investigation department official Fauzi Shaari (above) who joined PAS last month, and other former top police officials including former Commercial Crime Investigation Department chief Ramli Yusoff who have been exposing the government's wrongdoings to media.

Muhyiddin, when asked, confirmed that civil servants would have signed a form classifying their work while in service as under the Official Secret Act (OSA), but fell short of saying whether the actions of various individuals were illegal.
