This morning a friend of mine came to consult me on certain medical problems. He is a prominent leader among the CHinese community.
Invariably, we talked about the KT be election. I asked his opinion how he would vote if he is a KT voter.
He replied that if he is one of the KT voters, the first thing he would evaluate is whether UMNO has changed since March 8. He asked:
“Is there less racebased rhetorics than before??”
” Is there less corruption or less money politics than before?”
” Is there less abuses than before?”
“Are the people enjoying better life than March 8?”
And for component parties, which are helping the byelection, he said he would evaluate these:
“Is there any real reform undertaken by these parties? Is the perception that these parties are subservient to UMNo still exists? “
He asked me to think about these. He believed that , knowing how the CHinese community thinks, the KT Chinese would be influenced by these questions in how they vote.
I will leave these questions for the KT voters to answer. Each person may have different answers to these questions, and how the majority answer these questions will decide how the outcome will be….
