When?

This is the question on the lips of many Malaysians. Obviously some people are not feeling very confident.

Someone sent this to me by email. I don’t know who designed it but I think it sums up our situation. Is the delay because more vote-buying (aka handouts) has to be done?

when

This whole charade and guessing game over the election date is ridiculous and turning us into a laughing stock. It has drained the country of resources (incluing public financial resources for handouts) and energy.

The guessing game smacks also of a power-trip for ruling coalition leaders. They seem to enjoy keeping the public waiting and guessing while they search for “inspiration (ilham)“.

There has to be a better system and hopefully, we won’t see a repeat in GE14. If the BN government wants to wait for the full term, then let’s go for full terms from now on – barring ‘no confidence’ motions – and come up with a new rule that forbids handouts of any sort (apart from institutionalised welfare assistance) in say, the last three months before the term is up.

For many of us, it’s not the question of “Bila?” For 5 decades (that’s a lifetime) of …. evil propensities unheard of pre-Merdeka days of mutual co-existence, the Rakyat across racial lines have had suffered in the halo names of Malay Dilemma, 513, Bahasa Melayu, 1-Race Supremacy, Education>Employment>Financial>Culture Hegemony, & all the nonsense preached & made common practice… Our patience will not wear us out. Like Harimau Malaya, we will wait patently to pouch at the given opportunity – to VOTE OUT this … diseased regime from every bit of soil of Tanah Cinta Ku. For many of us, it’s… Read more »

That’s a good design which sums up the frustration of many Malaysians who are eager to VOTE ! I have been waiting for a year now, “living my life” months by months, allowing me the possibility of having to go back to vote at short notice – no thanks to our hesitating undecided govt !!!! At one stage with high anticipation of GE to be around, I bought lots of chocolate, biscuits, etc … yummy stuff usually requested back home …but in the end have to eat them all by my family or given away before the expiry date! But… Read more »

Let us all come out in full force to make sure that PR achieve a very substantial victory. It will be a useless victory if PR win by less than a simple majority of 10 seats as Ah Cheap will resort to the same scenario such as the Perak grab. Please PR people don’t be too happy now.

Lets us assist and come out in full force to counter these cheat and buying of adun

As I predicted, since Najib took office, he is going to enjoy the glamour of the job as P.M/ for as long as he can or as long as the law allows. There you are !

‘WHEN’ is the popular word now. Not the word ‘CHANGE’ or ‘UBAH’. ‘WHEN’ is my turn to receive santa claus gift from BN ??? Someone told me that now BN is practicing GENUINE negara kebajikan !!! Not the ‘janji tidak ditepati’ negara kebajikan by PAS. There are lots of excitement in current atmosphere and people are expecting the next windfall for their segment. BR1M, BR1M 2.0, youths, students, civil servant, armed forces personnels, Telekom, Pos Malaysia, etc. Who next and ‘WHEN’ ??? Hmm, this is the joy of waiting the next windfall from BN !!! p/s: I can’t wait to… Read more »

Recently Hisham and the butoh m kitty has been talking of chaos chaos chaos by PR when in fact they are the guys that have been doing it. Are they trying to extend their life line by creating a reason for an emergency ordinance that will postpone the election indefinitely?

Don’t know why Najib and UMNO/BN worry so much. Their Kollywood hero is out there to Rambo all their enemies all at once

Yes there is a better system.

It’s a set date in the constitution for GE so that everyone knows that Parliament will be dissolve on the last Friday of a specific month, and there will be approximately 4-5 weeks of campaign period, and election date will be the first Saturday/Sunday of the 2nd month after Parliament’s dissolution, every 4 years.

That will take the guess work out of when it’ll be, and would not impact the country economically with the endless guessing game and also the forcing of employees to take “Cuti” just to go back and vote.

Don`t bet on 4-5 weeks of campaigning unless that EC Chairman suddenly got attracted to Anwar. If you got 10 days, it would have been damn lucky for PR. In fact campaign has already started.
