The "Rakyat" (citizens) of Malaysia has voted in unison. The results of the 12th General Election shows that Barisan Nasional (Malaysia's National Front) is losing support from all races. Because if only the Chinese and the Indians are unsatisfied with the government, BN can still gain 2/3 majority in the parliament. This time around, even the Malays are losing confidence towards the party that have led this country since Independence 50 years ago.
Corruption, cronyism, price hikes (of everything) are rampant every since the 11th GE in 2004. In 2004, BN won a landslide victory. We, the Rakyat, gave our support to Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi and his government to lead Malaysia into even better times. Those times didn't come. In fact, it never came. He never delivered his campaign promises..fighting corruption? sigh..
To the "Opposition", I just want you guys to know that we, the Rakyat, voted you in this time round, largely because we are just TOO disappointed with the BN government and their so-called promises. Now that you are there in the position to make a CHANGE. I hope you make full use of it and deliver what you promised us during the campaigns. Let it not be mere talk. Let there be changes. Positive changes towards a truly Multiracial Malaysia where we are all known as Malaysians and not differentiated by our race, where we all have equal opportunities and where corruption is a thing of the past.
You have 4-5 years till the next GE to prove yourselfs. Make it count. Just so you know, we, the Rakyat, will be voting base on YOUR CALIBRE and how you PROVE yourselves in the coming elections. It's not that near... it ain't exactly that far either.
Learn not to DIVIDE and CONQUER. We all make up the country. Not any single race on its own. That's the BEAUTY of Malaysia. Let's make it beautiful and make the late Tunku Abdul Rahman proud of you and me :)
Good luck and all the best!
