While I am not a full time politician, the political movement is still at my heart. I am dismayed by the defeat of PKR in the by-election last Sunday. The result cast a serious doubt on our ability and will to build a better Malaysia.
Irrespective of the allegation of any misconduct by the winner of the by-election, the result is damning. I am concerned with the result as it appears than anything else. The result, I mean, is not the victory or defeat of any of the alliance. It is the voting trend.
What worry me the most is the dichotomy of voting patern. It appears that when the Chinese support to PR escalates, the Malay support declines enormously, not to mention that BN has recover marginally the Indian's votes.
The polar of voting patern between races is extremely unhealthy to construction of better society. Putting this into perspective, as it is, there are scums who incite racial hatred to earn political millege. The diversified support of BN and PR respectively and exclusively by Malay and Chinese provide nutrient for those pre-historical stone-age scumbags to hatch and grow.
If this polar of preference does not alter by next general election, we will see a majority government of Malay on the right of the Speaker, and a minority opposition of Chinese on the left. To aggravate the scenario, the Chinese based opposition seems to contend and confined with their wrestle with the Chinese based ruling party. The rampancy and overwhelming taking issues like Chinese schools, Chinese scholarship, Chinese temple do make (or portrait) them as Chinese party, not national party. Turning the Chinese based opposition into "Chindraft" is dire.
As a prerequisite of the intended revamp of our political landscape and structure, the majority of population, namely, the Malay must be ready. A picture of Malay as governer and Chinese as opposition would be as equal disastrous as the longevity of BN.
