The Putatan MP told The Malaysian Insight the calls started after the “Sheraton Move” in February last year, which resulted in PN snatching power from Pakatan Harapan.

  • So sad for the voters laaa as so much hope was anticipated when the voted in all these wakil rakyat

    Wakil rakyat are people's rep and whilst the law allows party hoping at the moment (nevertheless) its truly heart wrenching when a 'hop,step and jump' takes place

    The irony this time around was ie at the time when it really mattered before GE14, all parties opted to use a "common symbol cum platform' which sadly disintergrated when the 'dust began to settle'

    Anyway, can't undo the past but i guess the voters must a terribly dosappointed lot

    Like undi18 we hope an anti lompat akta too takes shape as going by demograpics, malaysia has a very young population

    Whilst having breakfast this morning over my roti telor/bawang banjir and sipping a hot piping cup of bru coffee susu lembu, i chanced on an interesting article in the star newspaper on undi18 which made a good analytical read as the next lot that are going to influence elections will be the younger generation

    Anyway, lets just pray our beloved country heads in the right direction and there was also talk of revamping the tax system albeit bringing back the GST..
