The Malaysian Socialist Party (PSM) is contesting four seats in the May 5
general elections, one federal parliamentary seat and three state assembly


In the lead up to the election, the PSM painstakingly sought to negotiate
with other opposition parties to avoid a three-corner contest with the
ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) in these seats.


But despite the mixed character of the opposition, said Choo: “The PSM is
concentrating campaigning to end the 56-year rule of BN in this election.
There has been too much corruption, squandering of the people's wealth and
selling off people's rights. It has to come to an end.”

“Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is humanity’s
original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man

dummy?” — Jarvis Cocker
