Face the facts, Election Commission... and dismantle yourself. No point holding elections otherwise!

Malaysian Election Commission found seriously flawed, backward and dysfunctional. Umno stubbornly clinging to authoritarian attitudes, as reflected in the opinions of its secretary-general Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor.

Members of the fact-finding mission from Indonesia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Australia and Germany were invited to Malaysia by Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim - but they came at their own or their country's expense. They were appalled at the violent police action against defenceless and peaceful protesters towards the end of Saturday's mammoth Bersih 3.0 rally for clean and fair elections.
