赞赞“民主”加“文明”的选举竞争的制度!

澳洲上周大选终于落幕!联盟党在Scott Morrison的领導下 赢得了众所认为胜不了的联邦大选!工党Bill Shorten大失所望,输了不该输的大选!

我在此祝贺Scott Morrison及团队们,也祝贺Bill Shorten有机会当了近6年的工党领袖,虽败犹荣!

我就喜欢澳洲这个“自由民主”加“文明”的选举竞争的制度!工党领袖Shorten知道自己赢不了,当晚马上客客气气认输并祝贺Morrison当选!Morrison也不落人后,在发表大选胜利讲话时也感谢Shorten的祝贺!大家都慷慨接受澳洲人民的最终选择!

我在此也要祝贺在Chisholm区竞选的两位候选人自由党的廖婵娥和工党的杨千慧女士们!她们给澳华社区带来了无限的期望!不管谁最终赢得这区的联邦代表,都是我们澳华社区的骄傲!我在此送上祝福!并祝贺廖女士脱颖而出,最终將会赢了!成为第一位华裔联邦众议员!希望她再接再厉为民服务!杨女士也不要气馁,来日方长,继续努力参政,三年后再决胜负!

好多华人可能还不知道,我们澳洲这一套的“民主”加“文明”的竞选制度是西方英国等经过几百年的尝试和勇气才制定下来的!也是经过不知多少艰辛的斗争,流血和牺牲才从一个封建内战时代逐渐转变成一个现代化“民主”加“文明”的和平改朝换代的制度!当今世界有好多国家都努力朝着这方向的改革走!因为这个制度对人民和国家好处多多!

改朝换代不必再用武装内战来决定了!她可以采用像澳洲、英国、美国、日本等这样类式的和平改朝换代的选举制度!而且反对党失败后,也有机会参政议政,协助胜选的一方执政!竞选时互相对立的各界人民在大选胜败后,也都“乖乖”地接受“选举”的结果!回到自己原来的岗位上,和和平平地照常生活!如真有不同意大选的结果也要“乖乖”地依据法律程序去处理,没有用什么暴力去反抗等等!可惜当今还有不够“民主”,不够“文明”的国家会不断出现这些暴乱甚至内战的活动,害得广大无辜的人民深受其害,不管什么原因都是他们自私的领袖们贪权贪利的后果!

因此,澳洲各界人民都要互相学习珍惜这一套和平改朝换代的制度!我也希望世界各地人民都有机会平平安安地生活在这样一个和平改朝换代的制度里,以后就再没有内战,更希望国与国也要学学这样一个制度,不要再用战争去解决政治不同意见的纠纷了!


Pay tribute to a liberal democratic and civilized Australian electoral system!

Dr Ka Sing Chua

The Federal election in Australia held on 18 May 2019 has finally come to an end! The Coalition Party, led by Scott Morrison, has won the federal election that the public thinks he would not have won! Bill Shorten, leader of the Labour Party, was disappointed to lose the election that should not have been lost!

I congratulate Scott Morrison and his team, as well as Bill Shorten, who has had the chance to lead the Labour Party for nearly six years.

I like the liberal democractic and civilized electoral competition system of Australia! When the Labour leader Shorten knew he couldn't win that night, he accepted the defeat gracefully and politely and congratulated Morrison on his election. Morrison, too, graciously thanked Shorten for his congratulations in his election victory speech. All parties generously accepted the final choice of the Australian people!

I would also like to congratulate the two candidates running in the Federal lower seat of Chisholm namely Madam Liao Chan-ngo representing the Liberal Party for the Coalition  and Madam Yang Qianhui representing the Labour Party respectively. Both ladies have brought tremendous expectation to the Australian community especially the Chinese Australian community! Whoever wins the Federal Representative in this seat will be the pride of our community! I send my blessings to both!

I again congratulate Ms. Liao who now stands to win in the end! She becomes the first Chinese Australian Federal Representative! I hope she will continue to serve the people well! Ms. Yang however should not be discouraged,. She still has lot of opportunity in future if she continues to work hard and participate in politics. She can compete the seat again in three years' time at the next Federal election.

Many Chinese may not know that our Australian system of democracy and civilisation, was adopted following hundreds of years of trial and courageous experimentation by Western democratic institutions. It was also through countless of hardships, bloodshed and sacrifice that the transformation from a feudal civil war era to a modern democratic and civilized institution where political  power was transferred to opposition in peaceful manner. Many countries in the world are striving to move in this direction. Because this system is good for the people and the country!

Change of ruling party no longer has to be decided by force and armed civil wars. People now can adopt such a system with peaceful change-of-power through election system such as in Australia, Britain, America, Japan and so on!

Moreover, after the election , the losing party members still have the chance to participate in the political affairs of the country. They can help to scrutinise the winning party to make them accountable to the people they both serve. People from all walks of life who are in opposition to one and  another during the election, gracefully accept the result of the election! Life goes on for every one and live in peace as usual! If one does not agree with the result of the election, it can be handled peacefully according to the established legal processes and no need for violence.

Unfortunately, there are still many countries in the world which are not democratic and civilized enough to embrace this system of governance. They still  engage in riots and civil war activities. Innocent people suffer, victimized and country ruined, for whatever reason, by the corruption of their selfish leaders who try to seize political power by force and killing one another.

Therefore, people of all walks of life in Australia should assist one another and cherish this system of peaceful change of governments. I also hope that more people all over the world will have a chance to learn to embrace such a system and  live in peace and security in a system of peaceful transformation, Then there will be no more civil wars. So please do not use war to settle disputes over political dissent.
