This Malaysiakini report,”Defeat spells trouble for Najib” in which an expert in Malaysian elections says,” “This is going to call into question Najib’s rise to the prime minister’s position. There will be those who will question whether he can deliver effectively.”
There are also those who say that the Malays shift is significantly leaning away from UMNO and also diminishing as this Malaysiakini report suggests http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/96690. If it was Wan Farid would not have got 30252 votes to Mohammad Abdul Wahid Endut 32883. Lets be realistic about the whole Perception as Politicians are so good at it. PAS did not win by 62883 and BN 252. We know,the winner even by 1 vote is a winner while if you lose by 1 is also a losts. But be more realistic about it instead of just using Malay issue running away from UMNO. In any elections its a combination of factors and even the smallest disgruntled remark can turn the tables against the political machinery.
I have earlier remarked in my write up,”Eeee Ezam Please” in which I should say is more than enough to tell the victor or the vanquished,” I am completely BAFFLED as why BN still needs to use Ezam against Anwar. BN needs to be more innovative,creative and should avoid using character or personality assasination to impress upon the PEOPLE. There must be something wrong with all the political analysts and strategist if they still think the old ways work. Lets be very certain about this,”Are we STILL LIVING in the 80s or 90s ?” If not,use whatever you have in this technologically savvy world to captivate the VOTERS and win their HEARTS over. Is it that difficult..??
Is it an overwhelming Yes and a shift to the opposition parties in PKR,PAS,DAP and its other alliances. No,No,No,, its a shift to How and WHO is the CANDIDACY which the parties put up to the PEOPLE. It’s NOW an OPEN MARKET and the PEOPLE will know who will deliver and who they can trusts. BN or PAKATAN don’t need arrogant,insensitive and snobbish leaders who thinks that the Voters are STUDENTS and they themselves are the TEACHERS. Those days are long, long, long gone.
The Peoples representative or aspiring ones needs to go back to their roots. Their constituencies needs to be looked after and they need to know what is bests for their own areas and not what is good for themselves and their POCKETS. If and when they know what the people see in them they will make a good ADUN or MP. I want to go on and on but what has motivated me to write todays report is this and I for one thinks its a significant and down to earth political statement.”Be a Gracious Winner,Nik Aziz tells PAS and Pakatan”
This is the extracted version,” Pas spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat wants Pas and Pakatan Rakyat leaders to be “a gracious winner” and not utter snobbish remarks that could hurt the feelings of those who have lost in yesterday’s Kuala Terengganu parliamentary by-election.The Kelantan menteri besar said any negative statement following the victory would put the party in a bad light.
“Don’t hurt the feelings of opponents because if they are hurt, it will be difficult for us to convince them of our struggle,” .
Wow..!! Its so politically right and this in itself will score hell of a lot of points. My late grandfather who was also a legislator from 1947-1960 said to us through our parents,” Its what you say and what you do which people will remember. Words uttered from your mouth cannot be taken back no matter how you try.So..THINK and USE your God Given Wisdom to reach out to people.” In other words we as young and rebellious grandchildren will say,Ummm..Dont speak FOUL of other people. The meaning however we know is deeper than the DEEP BLUE OCEAN if it is not already CHEMICALISED.
So DPM Najib even said,”BN accepted the decision made by the voters.He said that the results showed that democracy was alive in malaysia. BN will continue to work harder to earn the trust of the people and serve the people.”
This augurs well for the country and the party PAS won this election together with help from the coalition partners. UMNO has to go back to the drawing board and chart out a new UNTESTED territory. PKR won in Permatang Pauh which was their seat in the first place and PAS won this seat KT which is indeed a bitter lesson to UMNO. They will come out fighting in the next round and they will not sit on their laurels. Be very certain about that and they need to CHANGE their political strategists if it needs to be done.
Never ever use the same method in elections as the people wants and needs to see CHANGE which will benefit them and not CHANGE for the Sake of CHANGING. Don’t you think the voters FEAR FOR CHANGE..? If its good they will say,”WHY NOT TRY..?” Its reinventing always and not the same methods as a little spice will add more drama to Ooohs and Aaahs!! If only BN…listen, they say MORE TO THE PEOPLE…..Times have Change and people have Change..Najib needs to ask now,”WHAT DO I NEED TO DO MORE..?” Simple Najib,get down and listen to the grassroots and +++++ You know where to find me…..
