N29 Batang Ai To win: “Women Voters Crucial”
March 30, 2009 10 Comments
The phrase ‘ Women’s instinct “ must not be discarded in this byelection campaign. Womenfolks make up around 45% of the total votes in Batang Ai and they are placed of utmost importance says both sides of the political divide.
PKR and BN wanita movements have started their programmes to coax and to ensure that the votes are secured. The women folks in the Batang Ai longhouses practically live a very simple life tendering to their families needs. They are not really concerned about what really is happening politically outside their longhouse boundaries.
The women wings of both the parties will use all their women persuasive powers and not forgetting their instincts. Surely if $$$$$ are offered as assistance it will come in handy though it might just be a temporary relief for their basic needs. In any elections there will be talks of ”MONEY POLITICS” “BUYING VOTES” plus all the usual niceties that comes along with MONEY.
Nobody will come out be it BN or PKR dare to declare that we DID NOT USE ANY MONEY IN THIS RURAL CONSTITUENCY. Women folks play such a significant role in this rural remote area and their votes will also determine in the final analysis who wins. To forget the women voters the candidates are doing so at their own peril.
The candidates wife would be another crucial factor in N29 and we all know too well that,”Behind every successful man……………” Do I need to finish the sentence and say some more..!!!
We say as always,” Never ever underestimate ” WOMEN’S INSTINCT” they will make or always break many a GOOD MAN…hik hik hik
