Umno has keris, why not the 'clenched fist'?

Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM), which recently won a decade-long battle for recognition, faces a new hurdle after the election commission (EC) rejected its "clenched fist" symbol as too violent.

What sort of people in EC who made such an uncivilised decision? The "clenched first" being too violent. To us, the Umno's "keris" is the most violent. It symbolised hatred, kill, violent, threat and terrorism.

The EC decision on not accepting PSM's logo for the use in general election is clearly a political motivated one. The registrar of societies had already approved the registration of PSM, so is EC trying to sabotage PSM's existence and its rights "on behalf" of Barisan Nasional?

This action also clearly symbolised BN-Umno's ketuanan to curb human rights, freedom of speech and freedom of association.
