The Malays in Selangor are educated and want a government that improve on economic matters and their children to be on par with other races. They wouldn’t want an adun who only concern about what nurses wear and after lives issue.

Kelantan, Terengganu, wake up!

PM Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has given a stern warning against any quarters playing and riding on Islam.

Anwar said such an act would not be tolerated after August 12, and action will be taken against them.

Conversely, Selangor PRN results can affect Ringgit. If PN wins, Ringgit will spiral downwards as investors will lose confidence.

PSM deputy chairperson S Arutchelvan has challenged his opponents in the race for the Kajang seat in Selangor to declare their assets.

In a video titled “Asset Declaration – Nothing to Hide”, he said declaring assets is important because it would show that the candidate is honest.

The ringgit has taken a nosedive against the pound sterling, falling to its lowest level in seven years as it surpassed the significant threshold of RM6 to £1.

The Hutchisons will enjoy their stay in Malaysia even more (or longer?)

Dominic said more non Malays are now supporting PN compared to last election.

Let’s put it into perspective shall we?

Out of 100 non-muslims, Gerakan’s support rose from 1 to 7 non-muslims out of 100.

Not exactly seat winning stats.
Looks like for they will maintain their 0 Parliament seats and 0 DUN seats.

Perikatan Nasional may be able to win Selangor if there is a low voter turnout among non-Malays and if a third of PH-BN’s Malay voters back the opposition coalition – according to a survey conducted by Endeavour-MGC Research Centre.

A study by Perikatan Nasional has revealed that its support among peninsular Malaysia-based Chinese and Indians has increased beyond the one percent it garnered in the 15th general election.

This was revealed by Gerakan president Dominic Lau, who told Malaysiakini in an interview that support among non-Malays in Selangor, for instance, had improved to around six and seven percent.

Cuepacs has proposed (pressured) to PM Anwar that the minimum salary of civil servants be set at RM1,800 per month.

I think this is achievable by reducing new intake of civil servants for better productivity. 20% reduction in headcount to give 20% more of minimum wage is reasonable.

If an experience government servant is good in their work and able to make the nation great once again, let them extend their service.Dont get wasted on their knowledge and skills. Mostly all countries development need to go forward. Let them work and collect the taxes.
The more the productive workers are the
better they will regenerate income for the nation. This where income tax comes. Singapore, Thailand, Japan etc are practicing this formula. We got nothing to lose.

What will be much more hilarious is for the PH coalition members to think that just because MCA has now very little support from their community they have to be mute or just play dead. 

Just wondering, does DAP have a fully active, functioning university open to all communities like the one MCA has now under its wing? Maybe their clueless gloating supporters can answer this one.
