Vote wisely and calmly

Tomorrow is the Big Day.

So far, from the surveys of both Umcedel and Merdeka center, the 2 coalitions are running neck to neck. This is the first time that the result of a GE in Malaysia cannot be predicted.

In the past, no matter whom we voted, the outcome was always the same. BN has always been returned to power. Then, the  votes of the rakyat could only determine how many opposition voices were elected to Parliament, but the outcome was always same.. One party always won.

This is the first time our votes can make a real difference.

Do we want a change? Do you want a two party system that will bring better check and balance? If so, the choice is clear.

Come out to vote. Report any anomalies to the election agents or representatives of the various parties. But never go into any argument or be instigated to become angry.

Always have sober minds. Dont be tricked into any confrontation. But keep your eyes and ears open.

I also appeal to both sides not to play any tricks. The whole run-up, especially in Penang, was one-sided. The amount of money spent in Penang  by you-know-who has been excessive. As a former Gerakan member and CC member of that party, I felt both sad and ashamed that the party leadership has sunk to so low, as to be perceived  to be associated with all these excessive vote-getting activities.

The party which advocates a’ fair and equal society’ as its ideology  is now seen to be associated with unfair and heavy handed tactics.  In any case, its leadership should have come out and denounced such vote buying activities and put a stop to it.  By failing to do so, it is now seen to be assocaited with all these unfair and unequal tactics, which are actually against the election rules and the spirits of democracy.

All these will actually cause a backlash against them.

I appeal to all Gerakan members, if you still believe in the party ideology of fighting for a fair and equal society, come out and vote for change.  Only through change can the party goes back to its original path.

Penang people, and I am from Penang, are game for free foods and shows and lucky draws. BUt they are not cheapskates. I dont believe their votes can be so easily bought. The mammoth crowds in Esplanade reinforces this.

So, people of Malaysia, vote wisely but calmly.

Your vote can really make a difference to your children’s future this time!

    With one more sleep to go, I am even more optimistic that Pakatan will finally nail it. I think my previous prediction of 120 Parliamentary seats for Pakatan is a bit too pessimistic. Given that its performance is now being watched by every Pakatan voter with some even advocating citizens arrest and Ambiga saying it is treason to allow foreigners in to vote, EC may not be as daring as their instructions from their masters.
    So final prediction is now 128 for Pakatan and Dog Dies (94) for BN.
