In the 2008 general election, the turnout was 76%. In 2013, it was 85%. Can we match that this time around or at at least exceed 80%? (It was 69% at 3pm.)
As 5pm approaches, apparently many are still in line in some places. Bersih has issued an announcement for people to remain in line. Voters who are still in the queue should be allowed to vote. Mahathir himself has asked the Electoral Commission to allow them to vote after 5pm as it is not the voters’ fault. Some queued for four hours before they could vote!

TV1 (a) kept showing the ex-PM stating that no party had a distinct lead, without stating the time of this statement and subsequent updates, from at least 10 am to at least 5 pm (b) showed a repeating label (at least around 10 am) stating that appointing PM had been put off for the day. At 5 p.m., it reported that the appointment would go ahead. At 5 p.m., NTV7 stated that Selangor govt. remained in the hands of the “opposition”. Is any of this fake? If there are exemptions, why? If not, who are responsible and will… Read more »
RTM’s TV1 and MediaPrima’s TV3 need massive overhauling – those BN-inclined producers and presenters must be purged, in order to cleanse the mind of rural viewers brainwashed with Umno propaganda.
