Johoreans are known to be different in their outlook. They are more enlightened, broad-minded, all-embracing and tolerant. They are not the run-of-the-mill type but enjoy a distinctiveness that sets them apart. They brand themselves proudly as ‘Bangsa Johor’.
With so much going for themselves, they will be an inspiring example for the rest of the other states to bring about change. Change will have to begin with Johor when Johoreans cast their votes tomorrow, Saturday, 12 March.
If Johoreans can reject the kleptocrats, the bigots, the narrow-minded politicians, the selfish and greedy opportunists on Saturday, we can then confidently assume that we are on the right path to better times.
We hope you are committed to bringing about change. This will require you to turn up in huge numbers to cast your votes. A higher percentage of voter turnout will mean the greater the chance of sending the crooked and the kleptocrats packing.
Johor will be seen as the state that will not tolerate those politicians who enrich themselves and ignore the vast majority of poor Malaysians. Johor will not – and should not – forgive those politicians who stole billions of ringgit and nearly bankrupted this nation of ours. Their conduct was akin to stealing from their own family – that’s what it was! They were helping themselves to the wealth of the nation without a care and concern for the welfare of the country and its people.
The rot must end in Johor. Dirty politics must be cleansed and ethical conduct must be the order of the day. We look to you to liberate Malaysia from the clutches of the corrupt and the crooked.
Will you rise to this challenge?
We will know on Saturday!

- Raikan kerencaman dan keterangkuman
- Selamatkan demokrasi dan angkatkan keluhuran undang-undang
- Lawan rasuah dan kronisme

Stop dreaming. Johore is headed by … lanuns .
If the same politicians are elected then is there any hope of any change in their culture of giving priority to own benefits and of families/friends as the culture of greed may have been an accepted culture and all calls may be in vain. HOPE FOR THE BEST.
