Say No to Gutter Politics , Tolak Politik Durjana

Say NO to Gutter Politics

In year 2009, the Selangor EXCO member and ADUN for Bukit Lanjan, Elizabeth Wong was the victim of gutter politics. Two years later, our party leader Anwar Ibrahim is  facing the same attack on the current sex video.

Ketua Wanita PKR YB Zuraida had been called for the campaign “No to gutter politics” in year 2009 , below is the statement and we should continue this campaign.

Press Release
25 February 2009


Today our media has been used as the platform to sensationalize the private lives of politicians including men and women holding public offices. Without us realizing it, we are dragged into a culture called Gutter Politics.

We, Wanita Parti KeADILan Rakyat, view this sudden surge of Gutter Politics in our society as an imminent threat to our political culture. It undermines our civility, the non-partisan and democratic participation of the rakyat in Malaysia. We, Wanita Parti KeADILan Rakyat, condemn all forms of dirty political tactic used such as insinuation and abuse of information obtained to attack the privacy, reputation, family and home of any person holding public offices especially the women politicians.

Gutter Politics causes irreparable damage and deprivation of human dignity especially when the target is a female politician. Our route to gender mainstreaming in politics has now been obstructed by Gutter Politics because women who choose serving people as their passion and women who intend to venture into politics as their ways of life will now find themselves being blackmailed by gutter politicians.

Gutter Politics is a clear violation of Article 12 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights that no one shall be subject to attacks upon his honor and reputation.

We could be sliding into a deep and painful gutter political crisis unless we act swiftly. We, Wanita Parti KeADILan Rakyat, call upon the Government of Malaysia to enact new laws or to amend the existing laws to protect the privacy spheres of people. Stern penalty must be imposed on those who violate the right to Privacy.

Let us all say “NO” to Gutter Politics for the sake of human dignity. Say “NO” to Gutter Politics because we care.

Zuraida Kamaruddin
Member of Parliament for Ampang
Ketua Wanita KeADILan

    To Dear Selangor PR members, please keep your words & promises before 08/03/2008 general election, never turn us away. This statement from N45 Dr Halimah Ali is not true.

    Kerajaan Negeri Selangor dibawah kepemimpinan YAB Tan Sri Abdul Khalid dalam tempoh tak sampai tiga bulan mengumumkan lagi satu pakej “negara berkebajikan” apabila beliau menurunkan denda lewat pembayaran cukai pintu sehingga tujuh puluh peratus di semua PBT negeri Selangor. Pembayar cukai diberi tempoh hingga penghujung bulan Jun 2008 untuk berbuat demikian.

    Menurut beliau dalam keadaan negeri Selangor masih memerlukan dana untuk tujuan kebersihan dan peningkatan prasarana, namun Selangor masih mampu berbuat demikian.

    Pengurangan Denda Lewat Bayar Cukai Pintu
