Malaysian election results - my comments

Quite a number of people have asked me why I haven't blogged about the recently concluded general elections in Malaysia. This may not be entirely true as I did blog about Jeff Ooi getting elected. Even though I blog about issues I am not happy with from time to time, I prefer to keep politics out of my blog.

That is also the reason I am among the few Malaysian bloggers who you will not see jumping around with joy with the recent results. As I mentioned before, I am really interested to see how it will all work out.

Will the DAP and PAS, two parties with almost totally opposite agendas, get along within the opposition coalition?

How will UMNO and other BN component parties respond to this?

What role is Anwar Ibrahim going to play in this whole drama?

I would definitely like to see the opposition parties fulfilling the promises they made - namely that of eliminating corruption, nepotism and cronysm in the states they control. They have to. Everyone is looking up to them now.

However, I am not sure they can actually do anything about the inflation and rising prices of goods, one of the reasons why a number of people voted for the opposition. This is a Worldwide phenomenon and people here in the UK are complaining about it as well. The already high fuel prices are set to increase even further.

So, I am adopting the "wait and see" policy.

Hi Adam,

I agree with you. Wait and see!

I didn't even vote... not that I'm not fulfilling my duty as a Malaysian, but I don't think it's right to vote for candidates whom I don't even know!
