The upcoming general elections have started to see some immediate causalities and this includes YB Charles Santiago who is the MP for Klang for the last 3 terms. And looking at the list of possible candidates, not all candidates are standing in the same seat as the one that they won in the last election. Is this a new strategy from PH in facing BN & PN in the coming general elections? Image source: Malaysiakini
End of an era where YB Lim Kit Siang who has been instrumental in getting DAP to be part of Pakatan Harapan has finally called it a day and retired from active politics.
He was one of the first politicians to embrace the new school of using blogs and social media to share his political thoughts and concerns. Rest assured that he will remain an important advisor for DAP & Pakatan Harapan. Image source: Free Malaysia Today
It is said that it cost the taxpayers RM100 million for the 2022 Johore State Elections – an election that was unnecessary and basically meant a change of Chief Minister from the same political party. Image source: Wikipedia.
Despite being redundant, there was a blessing in disguise – to identify Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) shortcomings upfront and also the people’s sentiment since the backdoor government took over in February 2020.
It is expected that the country will see an additional 5.8 million new voters in the next general elections and all political parties including Pakatan Harapan will be looking forward to these new voters voting for them. Image source: NST
However, be very mindful that the young voters are more tech-savvy, educated, well aware of the constraints & abuses of race and religion in their future development and are indeed quite concerned about the direction of the nation. The question is how attractive the current political parties are to these new voters.
Frankly speaking, the Malacca state elections was an event that should NOT have happened in the first place and caused the taxpayers RM46 million. Image source: Wikipedia
It happened because 4 politicians from the ruling BN + PN coalition decided to rebel and pulled out their support for the existing State Government. Back then BN+PN had 14 seats against Pakatan’s 11 seats and once this happened, PH had one seat advantage that could have seen them taking over the state.
