I Am Not Voting For The Opposition

Yes, you read right. I am not voting for the opposition. I am also not voting for the ruling party. After the dissolution of the Parliament, there is no longer a ruling party. There is only a caretaker government consisting of the former ruling party that is the Barisan Nasional that administers the country during the interim until a new government is formed after the election. After the dissolution of the Parliament on February 13, there is no longer an opposition party, too. The political parties or coalition of political parties in Malaysia are on the same footing now. Each of them that contests in the general election has the potential to form the next government and become the ruling party if they win sufficient seats in the Parliament. So yes, lets cast our votes for the party that has the interest of our nation and her people at heart. The choice is ours. Right or wrong, we will have to live with that choice for the next five years.

  1. you not voting for anyone…
    maybe one day you find your vote is being used as the “ghost” vote…

    good luck!

    Your comprehension of English is poor, huh!

  2. You said you are not voting for any party and yet at the end you asked people to cast votes for party that has interest of our nation. Very contradicting, isn’t it?

    Honestly speaking, there’s no such thing as a ‘perfect party’ that gives their all for people. Every politicians have their own agenda. There’s no utopia in this world 😉

    Obviously, your comprehension of English is equally poor.

    Read properly to understand what I wrote first before commenting because you are making a fool out of yourself here by inferring to things which are not.

  3. You know what? THAT is the problem. Only people like Menj and you and some bloggers are able to understand each other. Majority of people in this country doesn’t.

    Speak for yourself and stop making sweeping statements. Two persons do not make a majority. On the same note, if you have an issue with Menj, take it out with him at some other place. This is not the forum for it.

  4. yes, whichever party win the next election will be the government. who knows maybe the current ruling government (wait there is no more government after the dissolution, but there is no caretaker as well??) will end on the other side of the parliament? 😛 (although due to the heavy gerry mandering, it is a quite impossible feat)

    That will be the day!

  5. Whichever I vote for, I’m sure BN will win again, so whats the point of voting really?

    Voting is your right as a citizen to decide who you want to represent you and your community in the Parliament to ensure that your interests are being protected.

  6. to NoktahHitam,
    What a statement! This shows tat you are one immature person. You choose your leader aka democracy.
    If you dont care, then dont even comment on any political issue. You dont have the right to.

    What you eat eventually become shit, why you bother to eat really?

    Strong words but very true nonetheless.
