After the GE13, many accusations of fraudulent charges will be thrown back and forth so that politics as usual in Malaysia goes on even after the votes had been made and counted. This blame game will go on and on as it is the norm of Malaysian Politics.
The Government has lost the urban areas with tremendous majority to the DAP and PKR as the majority of the voters wanted “UBAH” (change) beyond the imagination of the winners who are mainly young and fresh faces toppling Ministers and so on. This is the challenge that the ruling Government has to face now…. young and educated voters who would no longer buy the message of deception or caught by the dirty tactics by the ruling Party. PKR and DAP also had better impact amongst the rural voters as most of the ruling Party candidates were winning with a smaller majority compared to the last General Election. STAR was crushed by the belief that only PR can reach the pinnacle of power at our nation capital. We were abandoned even by our core supporters. Our seven candidates in Sarawak- three Bidayuh majority, two Chinese majority, one Malay and one mixed area, all lost their deposit after being squeezed by deception politics by both sides and money politics of the ruling party. However in Sabah we managed to win one State seat… thus the egg has been broken….
The bright side is after daring to win with minimal resources, financial and manpower we made PRU13, the defining moment in the politics of our nation. We know why we lost and we also know what it will take to win as a third force.
The people must raise above the present “blame-game”, money politics and patronizing politics for Malaysia to become the richest nation it should be. PRU13 has not really change the balance of power in our Parliament. If only PR is less arrogant towards STAR in Sabah and Sarawak, DSAI could be the Prime Minister to-day with an urban combined with a rural uprising if only STAR was accommodated fairly. He did not and he remains as the Opposition Leader in Parliament again.
Can the Opposition win the next general election in Sarawak? Definitely yes, if PR is going to partner STAR but definitely not if PR remain the only party to beat BN as in the last State Election.
