Just before the 2013 General Election, the Pakatan Rakyat leaders went all over the country saying that Barisan Nasional was going to cheat to win the election. After the election, they said that the lights went out due to a power failure in certain places while the votes were being counted, extra ballot boxes were brought in to certain places, tens of thousands of phantom voters were flown in from Bangladesh, and so on.
All this was later proven false. Even the Bangladesh Embassy denied that tens of thousands of its nationals were flown in to vote in Malaysia, which would require more than 100 chartered planes. And the places where they said the lights went out confirmed that they never experienced any power failure plus the opposition workers in the places where they said extra ballot boxes were brought in denied that incident.
This was merely a pre-emptive strike on the part of Pakatan. They knew they would not win GE13 so before the election they ‘predicted’ they would lose due to fraud and after the election they raised all sorts of allegations of fraud to explain why they lost. Now they are doing it again. Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said in his blog today that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak is going to cheat in GE14 on 9 May 2018 so that when they lose the election they can save face by blaming it on fraud like they did in 2013.
