Haris Abdul Rahman in Bersih 4.0, Commentary, Diary, Merdeka 2015, weekend

Merdeka this year fell on a Monday, meaning a nice extended weekend for everyone. I was on call last Friday, meaning I was able to use the couple of days to relax. But, that was not the only event taking place in town. Bersih 4.0 also took place, an event hoping to change the local political landscape for years to come. Or at least that was what we hoped for.

At least the event of the weekend went by without any unsavory incident except for this, and as usual both sides of the political divide would be claiming victory of sorts. But the truth of the matter is, it was somewhere in between and the dissatisfaction of the public on the ruling government was registered. The fallout however, would take time to be seen. And today, we were back to celebrate our Independence Day. And as long as both sides treat today as what it is, then there is hope for the Country.
