Will UMNO give up power?

I asked the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia if he on behalf of the Malaysian government will (minute 45):

(i) guarantee that the Barisan Nasional government will not resort to force to retain power;
(ii) guarantee that the Barisan Nasional government will not declare emergency before or after the next general election to circumvent the people’s will.

Listen to his answer and make your own judgement.
