I must say I am quite excited to see the DAP win in Sibu. Can we have more by-elections, please. But I hate the way this is turning into a racial issue when it is not.
It’s too obvious by now that the minorities in this country are simply fighting againt ‘discriminatory policies’ of the MAJORITY. That they are Chinese, Indians, Ibans, Dayak, Kadazans, etc…are a matter of pigmentation.
I am sure Pakatan must be secretly thanking Muhyiddin’s “I am Malay first” declaration, Mahathir’s Perkasa and the overall Allah issue for making things easier for them in Sibu.
From ‘tak ada modal’ to campaign, they have suddenly loads of issues to blast about. Thanks to Azhar Ibrahim (Penang Opposition leader’s) tirade on May 13, army takeover and possible attack by the underground Malay gangster Tiga Line group, whoever these poor souls are.
Wee Choo Keong’s surprise (not a surprise actually) resignation from PKR is NOthing compared to all these!
Goung back to Sibu, the way money is being poured into by-elections is simply horrifying. The right thing for the EC to do is to ban these acts of daylight bribery. But who is the EC? perhaps, we need an answer to that first.
Anyway, money did not work in Sibu and a few other constituencies which had a by-election in the past months. This is a good trend for the coming days.
I am now itching for a Kedah state election. Anyone game for it?
