Six methods to adopt against opposition parties to weaken their spirits and activities.

(1) Through organizational activities.

Recruit non-members to join. If close and constant contact is maintained with them opportunities for opposition will decrease and eventually be non-existent.

(2) Through the Economy - in order to diminish and ruin the opposition’s capacity to prosper economically.

a). Study meticulously the businesses that are operated by the opposition parties and set up similar businesses to compete and destroy them.

b). Adopt tactics that will abolish ownership and their market areas.

c). Core members should approach ordinary opposition members who do not have capital for investment and by offering them such money; they can be persuaded to join the organisation.

(3) Through the Administration.

a). With cooperation and assistance from the authorities, opposition members and their families must be prevented from acting in ways, socially or commercially, that pose a threat to our organization or to the state.

b). The weaknesses that exist within family members of opposition parties must be studied and exploited.

c). Hardheaded opposition individuals will eventually become shaken and agitated and most people will lose confidence in them.

d) When that eventually happens they will run away from their party.

(4) Act in accordance with the provisions of the law.

To be vigilant and examine whether the political, social and commercial activities of the opposition are in keeping with the law and to act as set out hereunder.

a). When political activities of the opposition can cause disintegration of the Union, the unity and solidarity of the nationalities, the sovereignty of the state, the authorities should be informed and action taken according to existing law.

b). When opposition party’s activities threaten the security of the state, the authorities should be informed and action taken in accordance with existing law.

c). Immoral conduct, disgraceful character and sinful acts of the opposition party members must be reported to the authorities and action taken according to existing laws.

(5) How People’s Power can be utilized.

The activities of opposition parties have the potential to destabilize the state and the peace and prosperity of the country; to disrupt the rule of law, cause widespread panic and disenchantment with the government resulting in outrage and demonstrations.

On such occasions, each branch must cooperate with the authorities and people’s power to outwit and demonstrate in larger numbers to defeat the opposition. Our membership of 10524 outnumbers that of the opposition. As stated below we will plan to perform with people’s power in numbers far greater than the opposition.

(6) Annihilation through greater strength.

As soon as the opposition comes up with a special activity, the branch will show greater strength by recruiting members from adjacent areas and stage demonstrations, meet and discuss, and deal with head-on confrontation.

(7) Formation of working committees and supervision.
