The newly appointed 'dubious' UMNO-led Barisan Nasional Mentri Besar, Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir who attended a Chinese New Year function at Yuk Choy Primary School last night amidst heavy security and was greeted with very loud boos and jeers from the vigilers gathered outside.

The crowd of more than 300 people were chanting "Hidup rakyat", "Bubar DUN (dissolve the State Assembly)", "Restore democracy" and "Love live democracy" and continued with a short 20-minute vigil with their white candles and white chrysanthemums around a 'tombstone' before dispersing peacefully.

Watch this video to witness this shameful incident:

Meanwhile in the school hall, Datuk Dr Zambry received an encouraging reception from about 1,000-strong crowd when he entered but however, muted applause greeted him when he took the rostrum.

But it was only when Datuk Dr Zambry pledged RM30,000 to the school's Chinese orchestra that the whole audience gave a rousing applause.

After his speech, Datuk Dr Zambry was quickly whisked away by his security personnel while police personnel ran alongside his official car until it was well clear of the remaining vigilers, who again gave him another round of jeers and boos.

The UMNO-led Barisan Nasional, who had wrest the State government by dubious means a few days ago by using the Palace and the 'frogs' seem to to receive humiliation and embarrassment.

The time has come for UMNO to realise that their tricks had failed and the rakyat will discard them completely come next elections.
