请踊跃参与网上在线请愿要求联合国介入调查2015年大选!

坚持下去

2015911日在新加坡举行的全国大选已经结束了。大选的结果是新加坡 人民行动党取得了69.89%的支持票,83个席位;在野党取得了31.11%的支持票,工人党取得了6个席位。

根据选后公布的各个选区行动党和在野党的得票计票数据显示,这是一场不公平、不民主、不道德选举。行动党在本届选举前四年已经为赢得这场选举在选前进行了极其周密的部署和计划。行动党已经再一次践踏了西方议会民主!

为此,革新党宏茂桥集选区候选人吴家和先生向联合国驻泰国曼谷办事机构递交了投诉信。

为了进一步要求联合国尽快介入这项投诉,吴家和先生发起了一项网上在线签名请愿运动,把这项投书正式向联合国提出。

请网友们、64万投票支持在野党的同胞们!为了我们的民主进程、为了我们土生土长的新加坡人及其后代在未来能够有一个公平、透明、民主、正当和具有道德的选举运动,请您,并通过您邀请周边的网友们、同胞们参与这项网上在线请愿签名运动。我们一定要让全世界爱好民主、自由的国家、人民 和组织新加坡人民的正义和正当的诉求!

以下是吴家和先生致给联合国有关投诉新加坡2015 年大选举不道德行为的投诉信中英文全文:

致:

联合国驻曼谷办事处

曼谷联合国会议中心12楼,

泰国Rajdamnern Nok Avenue, Pranakorn

尊敬的先生/女士

我在此正式向联合国提交有关我的国家在最近举行的大选的投诉。

我个人的档案记录。我参与了两届的大选——2011年的蛋滨尼集选区和今年的宏茂桥集选区的选举。

关于最近的大选。执政党人民行动党赢得了70%绝大多数的胜利——这次(人民行动党)取得的胜利百分比是与2011年大选结果的60%增加了巨大的比数。

许多反对党在这次大选遭受了巨大的损失——从所谓有的下跌了20%的记录。

我感到忧虑的是,假设这样的不道德行为继续不受抑制,这将会成为一种规范行为。我们将会看到一党长期统治——只是新加坡人民所不愿意看到的。

我们是愿意接受在大多数人的委托下的(选举结果)。但是,假设执政党(在这次选举所取得)的胜利是在不公平的情况下取得的,那么,国际社会,如联合国等组织就必须介入这样未来的选举才有 可能在道德和光明正大的基础举行。

我们希望联合国能够派遣一个独立的评估团来调查,这样人们在未来的选举运动时将会获得在一个公平和具有道德的保证下进行。

而且,新加坡是一个国际上具有盛名的经济强国。这个经济强国是有许多跨国企业在这里的。但是,这个国家却严重缺乏民主权利和言论自由。

那些发表反对当局言论者都迅速的被警方当局召去问话,接着就要面对法律起诉和被判入狱。

我在此把有关我们的政府赢得了本次大选的不道德行径罗列如下:

  1. 加入了新移民公民

(参加了本次大选的)投票者新公民在过去几年已经被加入成为投票者。这样(政府)可以在选举时以投票给执政党表达自己的忠实。

这些新移民大多数是来自第三世界的国家,如菲律宾、马来西亚、中国、印度和印度尼西亚。这些新移民除了知道(在新加坡)有一个政党是人民行动党外面不知道有任何其他政党的存在。从2006年起,每年大约有2万5千名新的投票者被加入。在本次的大选中具有投票资格而被加入的新公民超过了20万人。他们都是首次参与投票的。虽然我们都知道许多投票者手SG50 的金禧国庆和李光耀的逝世所影响而投票给执政党。但是,来自第三世界的新投票者将会成为(执政党的)一股对付我们的一股新的力量。在经济增长的幌子下,我们的政府继续许多外来的新移民。但是,他们谎言背后的真正阴谋是为巩固自己长期占据着统治的地位。我们要求政府考虑这些新公民必须在他们取得公民权后在这个国家居住了5年或上才允许参与投票。这样一来,这些新移民就不会被执政党用来维持其统治的工具。

  1. 二、选区的重新划分

选区重新划分已经成为每届大选的规范了!但是,对执政党来说,本届大选却是更加紧迫和急切需要,因为他们面对诸如交运和人口过于拥挤等许多国家课题尚未解决。

在过去两届的选举中,决定性的大多数票(都从执政党哪里)流出去了。

在本届大选的选区重新划分(执政党来说)是属于及其重要的。因为它允许政府把大批有资格投票的新移民公民注入属于反对党控制的选区。这是一个绝对确保执政党可以在这些选区占据优势的保赢的安排。这样也可以把反对党发赶出这些选区或者降低反对党得票率

工人党在阿裕尼集选区就是这样的一例子。他们在2011年的大选赢得了五位数的大多数票,在本届大选只获得1900张多数票(或者相当于50.95%的得票率)。有3.7%的选票是投给了行动党的。

在2011年,阿裕尼集选区有选民14万3千人。但是本届大选的选民人数是14万8千人——选民人数增加了近5千人。

在2015年大选时,根据2011年大选结果约7千2百张选票的情况下,他们增加了7千个新移民投票者。这就造成工人党的选票减少了3.7%到50.9%的多数票,或者是在计算了行动党的票后,从2011年赢得1万2千张选票掉到本届选举只赢得1900张选票。

这就是说,人民行动党所得的从(2011大选的)5万91千票增加到6万7千票——估计这就是新移民的5千张选票和3千张中间选票的组合。

在行动党增加更多忠实的新移民进入阿裕尼集选区的情况下,在2020年的选举时,工人党可能无法在保住阿裕尼集选区了。

政府粗略知道,根据投票站的统计,大约有多少百分比是亲行动党的选票或者是亲反对党的。这已经是一个家喻户晓的事 了。

随着执政党的那些丑恶的选区重新划分在每一届的大选的来临,在从选区里移走或者增加某个百分比的选民,这将会确保这个选区将会属于政府的多数票。

我们要求,在未来任何受到选区的重新划分的影响必须咨询反对党的意见,以确保是在同一水平上的竞争。

三、把人民协会从人民行动党的控制中划分出来

受到巨额资金的资助的人民协会是人民行动党的左膀右臂。这就是为什么人民行动党那个在本届大选赢得这么漂亮。

同时这也是不合理的。作为一个法定机构的人民协会必须是非政党化的角色。但是,它的所有活动一直以来都是亲人民行动党的。

人民协会每年获得5亿资金的资助,很快它的资助预算将增加到一亿元。它的会计行为是同时令人质疑的。它是被我们国家审计署标记了在使用资金上不恰当的其中一个法定机构

对于反对党而言只是不公平的。政府以不道德的手腕使用纳税人的钱去为自己的(政治)运动服务。

尤有甚者,人民协会的主席就是总理本身。

我们要求人民协会必须解散或者在所有的事情上自我与执政党保持距离,它必须保证自己的扮演的角色是在一个水平上。

四、选举局是属于总理办公室管辖

选举局是属于总理的管辖权范围。

这是绝对不过公平的。它给予执政党巨大的优势,特别是选举局可以被影响有关选区的划分和它可以在咨询了这里办公室后宣布进行选举。这样一来,选举给予反对党准备时间是及其短暂的。

我们要求选举局必须是一个独立于总理办公室之外的中立和公平机构。

五、在竞选期间控制了媒体

设在法国的新闻无国界组织的评估下,我们的国家的报章的排名每年下滑,它们已经从排名第153 位下滑到180位了。

政府完全控制了我们的报章媒体,这样一来他们可以影响广泛的群众,特别是在选举的重要时刻。这些报章媒体所报道的信息是大部分是有利于执政党的。他们的报道方式并不像中国或者苏联这样共产集团的国家那样。

在竞选期间,(执政党的)宣传文宣排山倒海似的不断重播,以此影响中间选民把票投给了执政党。

我们要求开放我们国家的主流媒体。这样人民才可以在一个平衡基础上评估有关的信息。

在没有通过不公平的手段和不正当的宣传的情况下,让人们自己决定他们要的是什么样的政府。

结论

本人愿意与联合国有关负责人讨论有关上述的问题。这样我的国家在2020年可以有一个公平和具有道德的大选。

为了确保好具有良好素质的政党能够取得胜利,我们欢迎在来届大选举行时独立的评估团体到来进行监督。

仅此向您致以谢意和热烈的祝愿

您诚挚的

吴家和

By now, about 40,000 of you have read about my request for the United Nations Office to look into the unfair unethical practices of our recent general election.

So far, there is no response yet from the United Nations and I want each and every Singaporean who supported my quest to sign on this online petition asking them to look into this matter urgently.

If you care enough for our country’s democratic progress in the future, do the right thing – just sign on this petition and let the world know how concerned we are.

Thank you Singaporeans.

SAY NO PAP

I reproduce the email sent out to the United Nations on 22 Sep:-

To:

United Nations Bangkok

12th Floor, United Nations Building,

Rajdamnern Nok Avenue, Pranakorn

Bangkok 10200, Thailand

Dear Sir/Mdm,

I want to formally lodge a complaint to the United Nations for our country’s recently-held general election.

For the record, I also stood for general election twice – Tampines GRC in 2011 and Ang Mo Kio GRC this year.

For the recent election, the ruling party PAP won by a landslide majority percentage of 70% – a huge increase of 10% over the previous GE 2011 result of 60%.

Many opposition parties suffered from bad losses – right down to the unprecedented 20s percentile mark.

My fear is that if the following unfair unethical practices are to go unchecked, it will be the accepted norm and we may see a one-party rule for a very long time – something which many Singaporeans are uncomfortable with.

Many are willing to accept the mandate of the majority but if the ruling party won it unfairly then the international community such as the United nations needs to step in so that future elections can be conducted ethically and above board.

We hope that independent assessors be sent in by the UN so that the population is ensured of a fair and ethical election from now on.

Moreover, Singapore is a  internationally-renowned economic powerhouse with a huge multi-national presence but it is seriously lacking in democratic rights and freedom of speech.

Those who spoke out against the authorities were frequently questioned by the police with some facing lawsuits and jail sentence.

I have listed down the following unfair unethical ways in which our government has won the recent election:-

  1. Injection of new citizen voters

New citizens were injected yearly so that they can usher in to vote for the ruling party out of loyalty.

They were mostly hailed from third world countries such as Philippines, Malaysia, China, India and Indonesia and know no other party besides PAP.

An average of 25,000 new voters are added in annually since 2006 and by this election, more than 200,000 new citizens are eligible to vote – mostly for the first-time.

Though we acknowledged that voters are swayed by the SG 50 jubilee celebration and the death of patriach Lee Kuan Yew to vote for the ruling party, new voters from third world countries will be the new force to be reckoned with.

New-citizen voters is the main reason why our government allows in so many foreigners on the pretext of economic expansion but behind there lies a more sinister motive to stay in power forever as they are loyal to the ruling party.

We urge the government to consider that new citizens can only vote after staying with us for 5 years and beyond so their votes can never be manipulated at the onset to help the ruling party.

  1. Boundary changes

Boundary changes is the norm of every election but for this recent election it is more pressing as the ruling party faces some unresolvable national issues such as transportation and over-crowding.

It’s share of the crucial majority votes have been slipping since two elections ago.

For this election, boundary changes is also more critical as it allows the government to flood certain opposition-held wards with new citizen voters. It is almost a sure-win way to ensure that they can hold on to their own constituencies and yet able to possibly remove a opposition-held ward or reduce its winning margin.

WP’s Aljunied GRC is one such ward as it saw the winning margin reduced from a five-figure majority victory in 2011 to a narrow 1900 votes (50.95). There is a 3.7% swing against the opposition giant.

In 2011, Aljunied had 143,000 voters whereas for the recent election it has 148,000 voters – an increase of almost 5000 voters.

In 2015, it polled 70,000 votes against the 2011 election’s 72,000 causing it to slip 3.7% to 50.9% of majority votes or 12,000 winning votes in 2011 to the current 1900 votes after counting in the PAP’s share of the votes.

The PAP’s share of the votes, on the other hand, jumped from 59,000 to 67,000 – probably a combination of new citizen voters (5000)  and swing voters (3000).

There is thus this fear that WP may not be able to hold on to Aljunied GRC in 2020 when the ruling party pours in more loyal new citizen votes with all things remaining equal.

The government roughly knows whether certain precinct is pro-government or pro-opposition according to the polling station and this is public knowledge by now.

By removing or adding certain precinct from a constituency, it can ensure that the area has a majority of government voters with the awful unfair boundary change that comes with every election.

We urge that any boundary changes in future be effected in consultation with the opposition to ensure that the playing field is levelled.

  1. Demarcation of PA from PAP

The heavily-funded People’s Association (PA) is the arm and leg of the ruling party and its reach into the masses is one main reason why it won so handsomely.

It is also unfair as PA is a statutory board which is supposed to be non-partisan but its activities is all along very pro-PAP.

It has a yearly funding of $500 million and its budget is going to be ballooned to $1 billion soon. Its accounting practice is also suspect and is one of the many statutory board that is flagged by our Auditor-General’s office for malpractices.

This is unfair to the opposition as the government is using our tax payer money to fuel it’s own campaign by using unethical means.

Moreover, the chairman of PA is none other than the Prime Minister himself.

We urge that the PA be disbanded or distance itself from the ruling party in everything that it does to ensure that the playing field is levelled.

  1. Election Department falls under the Prime Minister Office (PMO)

The Election Department now falls under the jurisdiction of the Prime Minister Office (PMO).

This is most unfair as it gives the ruling party a huge advantage especially when the ED can influence significant boundary changes and when it can call for a election after consulting the PM giving little time for the opposition to prepare it’s ground.

We urge that the ED will be independent of the PMO so that it is impartial and just.

  1. Control of mainsteam media during election

Our press rankings have been slipping down yearly with the latest rating at a historic low of 153 out of 180, according to Paris-based watchdog Reporters Without Borders.

The government has controlled our press and TV so that it can influence the masses especially during the crucial general election. Information is mostly slanted to benefit the ruling party and this press behaviour is not unlike that of communist bloc countries like China or Russia.

Propaganda messages were played and re-played again during the recent election so that the large middle ground is influenced to vote for the ruling party.

We urge that the government frees up our mainstream media so that the population has a balanced access to information on a impartial basis.

Let the public decide what kind of government they want without improper propaganda through unfair means.

Conclusion

I am willing to speak with the United Nations personally on all the above mentioned matters so that our country can have a fair and ethical election in GE 2020.

We also welcome independent assessors into our country for the next general election to ensure that the best political party wins – on its own merits!

Thanks & Warmest Regards,

Gilbert Goh
