  • The Chinese can't have it both ways. If they do not want to vote then don't whine after your favorite parties lose. Also please stop lamenting about being discriminated by others. You will deserve it if you stay home.

  • Another Tanjong Piai in the making. PH deserves what they get. They shot themselves in the foot by aligning themselves to the frogs.

  • If the covid cases increase as a result of this unnecessary state election we all can pin it to these 6 people that is the 4 that switch camp and the big headed state speaker who has the mantra of cash is king and the most good for nothing governor whose appointment can be reviewed to be terminated as he is certainly doesn't has the concern for the people of Malacca to begin with.
