The Election...

From the look of it the general election is going to be very soon. Some indication that it would be held in the month of March. I read that the Parliament would be dissolved soon and with that The Election Commission would announce the nomination date and follow with the date of the Polling day. We have been that way before so after going for eleven elections since we got our independence in 1957, we are matured enough to understand what our votes means.

I personally believe most Malaysian has already made up their mind of whom or which party to vote in the coming Election. The former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir advice the voters to vote for the good and clean candidates, so I hope that all political parties do take notes to put good candidates for the coming Election. By doing so we would get good people into our Parliament and this would augur well for democracy in Malaysia.

We have been an independent country for fifty years already and most Malaysian voters of today are post Merdeka citizen, mostly well educated and already matured in their thinking, thus I believe they would go to the poll with an open heart and vote with a clear conscience. I have been through the election from the first one in 1955 and all the elections throughout the years. This coming election is going to be the Twelfth Election. So let get it going and together we could continue to made this great country greater.

This coming election would saw some major changes like the using of Transparent Ballot Box and the marking of the finger with the black indelible ink. In the past the voters were only verified with their Identity card. So with this new introductions it would surely made the coming election better then before. Have a nice day.. So When is the Voting day!!!.

awang, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on the happening in Sarawak.

The media including bloggers [citizen journalists] should play their parts in getting the message across so that we would get a good and fair election. The voters in the coming election are a matured lots, so I believe the would vote with wisdom.

Have a nice day and take care.

Pak Idrus,
Good politicians will be voted in but they will later be made to obey the corrupted leaders who think they owe him one for choosing them to be a candidate. As the Chinese saying says, a fish rots from the head. We must remove the head first.
