Bismillah. In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful.
Currently, in Malaysia, mini election in Ijok is the famous topic in daily conversation. Although I am in here, doesn’t mean that I do not care about my country. Politic is quite important as it plays big role in determining citizen’s fate. Mini election in Ijok is simply a microcosm, to see which party’s fight is right (hey, that’s rhyme!). I am merely an observer, not siding in either party. But still, I have an opinion and do my own analysis, not merely an observation.
As you know, since I’m not really ‘being there’, my eyes and ears are from the media, but there are various media that I use. In my opinion, there shouldn’t be accusations and merely gifts, but true words. I would like to say to any politician (I mean, any, not just Malaysia), that to win citizen’s heart, is to fight for their right.
Let’s see whether my comment will be approved in this blog. 😉
Media that I referred to:
- Malaysia today (source for independent news)
- The Star
I believe Malaysians have grown more educated than previous years with the internet boom and frequent access with other means of information.
However, I am still disappointed with Government-appointed politician ministers. All are mostly empty promises trying to lure the voters as evidenced throughout the past elections.
I am not too sure about our future with this country anymore. The GDP shows promising figure but the grassroot or the rakyat are not enjoying this at all.
Frankly, I am an investor myself. With all the share market bull run, I am still not convinced by our PM’s recent positive statement.
Again, it is our right to vote! This is our choice either to vote for BN (a vote for expensive future) or a vote for PKR (which could probably determine the difference for a change)
Best of luck!
media that you refer to is limited and some belong to the government. how can you get a fair view? you should read alternative and online media and some blogs on ijok to get a balance view.
dear anonymous (although I don’t like anon people, but your words make sense, thus you are forgiven =p)
yes, what our people want is better country, not a corrupted one which makes the rich richer and the poor poorer. thanks for the wish.
yes, i do look out for alternative sources, and although I try not to be bias, but PKR’s vision is much stronger. I would say, although alternative party doesn’t control the media, still, they are making sense of their words and manifesto.
