Malaysia: Results of Malaysia’s 12th General Election

Let’s talk politics!

In line with the big upcoming event in March, the general election (pilihan raya umum), we can see the news on TV and newspapers flooded with stories about the general election. The same goes to the blogosphere. Everybody has got their own opinions. Some say the Barisan Nasional (BN) will be re-elected again, and some say the opposition will win. Bloggers are also fighting for the top spot in search engines (talk about SEO War huh?)

I’ll be doing a few write-ups about what I think as well. The blogosphere is the only place where freedom of speech can truly be expressed (to a certain extent), with hopefully, no retribution. Just watch the news on TV, nearly everything is one-sided. Only one side of story is being heard. Yet, there are “those few” who say that freedom of expression is practised in Malaysia.

Anyway, we will be electing a new government this coming 8th of March 2008. So, who do you think will win? Who will take the two third majority?

Personally for me, I still think that Barisan Nasional (BN) will still be the victor. In Peninsular Malaysia, I expect a clean sweep for the Barisan Nasional (BN), including Kelantan. Even though I hate am not so fond of certain Barisan Nasional (BN) fellas (like Khairy Jamaluddin), I still think that they’ll do a much better job. Minus the corruption of course (or should I say alleged corruption?).

  1. Be End says:

    I dont think that you understand Kelantan.

    For PRU12, BN will be humiliated again in the Malay heartland.

    Kelantanese dont vote for cash or goodies.
    Most are self dependant especially those in the heavily populated northern part of the state. They vote for reps who can spend time with them at the coffee shops and masjid, down-to-Earth type like the masses. Many, if not all of BN candidates are not of such type. But many PAS candidates seem to be so.

    Furthermore, the voters act collectively.
    If the atmosphere in Kelantan seem to favor the defender, then topped up with outstanding national issues, even BN hardliners will secretly side with PAS.

    Oh yeah, did I say Kelantan UMNO’s internal turmoil ? It happens every general election !

    So, judging by all that, victory in Malaysia, yes, but victory in Kelantan, no.

    P/s :
    BN is lucky to have ” tunggul kayu ” voters in Malacca, N.Sembilan and Johor )

  2. Well, that may be true, may be not.

    I’m just forecasting the results of the PRU12 based on gut feel. No statistics, nothing concrete.

    Anyway, talking about cash and goodies, it came out in the news the other day that Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang promised free land for people wanting to stay in Terengganu. Also, in Selangor, PAS have promised all sorts of monetary compensations if they were to win. So, nobody’s perfect.

    Also, I don’t think that it’s fair to label voters in Malacca, N. Sembilan, or Johor as “tunggul kayu”. That may be true, but hey, Kelantanese have also been comfortable with the status quo for so long now.
