It depends on which side of the political divide you stand BUT for an ordinary man Malaysian Politics is in a BIG MESS. What was said,What had been said,What will be said is nothing more than a diversionary attacking technique practised by most seasoned politicians to score an upper hand on their common enemy.
Why.? This Malaysiakini report will provide most of the unanswered questions that has been lingering in the minds of most Malaysians http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/98027 headlining,” DAP big Guns agree to bury hatchet. It states with the extract,” The party’s chairperson Karpal Singh, supremo Lim Kit Siang and former chairperson Dr Chen Man Hin held a meeting last night where they agreed to bury the hatchet.The leaders agreed that the upcoming by-elections was more urgent matter.”
BN saw it coming too with Pak Lah saying in the main stream media that ,”We should start our preparations now.We have to work very hard to win these seats.” Hard work and unity among BN component parties would be crucial to win the seats. Obviously, Pakatan will also have to take note and in this Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/98024 “Scramble in Pakatan for bukit Selambau seat” whereby an interesting extract is,”which not only states –Step aside PKR ..Now Pakatan Rakyat allies DAP and PAS and even the outlawed Hindu Rights Action Force are keen to contest when the by-elections are called.”
So both sides are using diversionary techniques to pull a fast one again on each other and saying there are differences in their respective coalition. This is politics my friends, and the more YBs and MPs a party has the more respect gained. Its always the numbers and mathematics in politics. The tree without the roots will not survive and vice versa. Its always a calculated move in politics and each party will try to SELL THEIR CANDIDATES like a valuable PRODUCT to represent the coalition be it BN or Pakatan.
I had my doubts already when Karpal was having an outburst against Anwar. Some BN Sarawak YBs told me,”You see Pakatan coalition leader Anwar cannot control his general.” Of course PKR and DAP Sarawak members were saddened by Karpal’s no holds barred attack. Second Minister of Planning for Sarawak Awang Tengah said,” PR comprises parties of different IDEOLOGIES which do not MESH and the OUTBURST by Karpal was a manifestation of the SCHISM between them. BN has a proven track record of a coalition in the true sense and it is by far the better option.I dont think the PR can govern the way BN has done it as there is political stability.
Is Politics so simple? We negotiate, we bury the hatchet, we move on. Yeap, there might be heart breaks,dissatisfaction,untrustfullness but the water flows so quickly under the bridge that every moment in politics is for NOW and not Yesterday. Thats why there are no enemies in politics and only political realignment and which SOLUTION and PROPAGANDA will capture the minds of the electorate and WIN THE VOTES in The Ballot Boxes.
There will be a lot of issues which will be brought up in the by-elections and it is up to the respective parties and coalition to put up their BEST MENU for the people to choose. There is no second chance and we hope BN will stop using the old techniques. Leave Ezam out of this and you will give the byelections a better flavouring….
