Tg Piai results show extent of people’s anger with Pakatan, leaders say

Sheridan Mahavera

The people have spoken via their votes about their frustration and unhappiness with the government, says DAP’s Lim Kit Siang. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, November 17, 2019.

THE landslide win accorded to Barisan Nasional in the Tanjung Piai by-election is a sign of how dissatisfied the people are with the government’s implementation of reform, said top leaders of Pakatan Harapan.

They vowed to work harder following the ruling coalition’s crushing defeat by more than 15,000 votes.

    • Agree. More black shoes, more khat, bigger budget for JAKIM, use SOSMA, etc etc. - then expect us to get rid of PH comes GE-15.

  • I'm not entirely sure if MCA (BN) is a better alternative, after all they (MCA) did sit in coalition with UMNO without questioning the money drain. And still is unlike Gerakan.

  • Kit Siang need to take a long hard look at himself in the mirror. Why did he support Mahathir? Under M, it's back to business as usual again. DAP and PKR are losing support. Exactly as how M wants it.

  • Its 18 months since the historic day and the crooks are still running around making noises and making a mockery of everyone.

    First order of business should be to convict the big crooks responsible for all the thefts, then help the larger population in need of support.

  • TDMs job is deemed accomplished on the eve of 9May2019. Some young bloods should take over and carry the new Malaysia forward.

  • Its quite alright wanting to voice and shows your disapproval and anger but lets ponder on this given scenario where in Malaysian politics by the look of it cant run away from race and religion. Casting the votes from MCA to DAP and now back to MCA, questions is who is really able to look into the interest of the Chinese folks?? If the Chinese felt they have been screwed by PH can MCA really make a real different since at federal level its still PH calling the shots. Can the Chinese really ditch PH in the next GE?? If Umno & PAS can join effort cant MCA, DAP & Gerakan made the same call?? And when that happens the Malays disgruntled parties decides to join forces as well then where would the voice of the Chinese be?? Brags for all we want but if tolerance and honesty is not in our minds and souls, I honestly cant see we go far.
