Politicking as usual

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.

  1. To-day i will be making a post-election comment press conference at our Headquarters office on our stand that every loser should take their case to the High Court through an Election petition rather than trying to garner more support through “street protests”, etc.

    Let divine justice runs its course and if the opposition parties really want to form the Government in 4-5 years time, we have the time to reflect on ourselves why we lost. Right now even the poorest of the poor knows why we lost- divided votes like in many areas where the opposition votes are more than the national front called BN! If Anwar, the Opposition leader, wants to be PM, he should learn from his own mistakes in PRU. Street protest is the reason why many Sarawakians, the people of Sarawak, and Sabahans, the people of Sabah, cannot support PR. They want Statesman not a “protester”.

    The politics of deception and arrogance will not be enough to win the two States which are the two States the People Front also known as Pakatan Rakyat(PR) in Bahasa Malaysia needs to win…. now they can win only the Chinese majority areas through their strong cry for change. STAR is waiting for the change promised by both sides during the campaign.

  2. I tend not to drop a lot of remarks, however i did some searching and wound up here Politicking as
    usual | a better future. And I do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind. Is it only me or does it look like a few of these comments appear as if they are written by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting on other social sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  3. Normally I do not read post on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do it!
    Your writing style has been amazed me. Thank you, quite great article.
