11% swing is all it takes to defeat Pakatan

Sheridan Mahavera

PAKATAN Harapan will be a one-term government if 11% of the total Malay votes it received in the last general election returned to Umno, a study revealed.

This 11% vote swing from Malay voters, said pollster Ilham Centre, was what gave the four-party coalition the edge to oust Umno and the Barisan Nasional coalition from Putrajaya.

  • I'm sure the PH leaders are well aware of the Malay proclivity to wallow in race and religion issues. They have five years to wean these people from their backward worldview and propel them into the world of tomorrow. Not impossible even for these folks.

  • So in summary, with the majority support from urban Malays and non-Malays, this country is finally saved. It's sad that those rural folks who are still supporting of the thieves in UMNO and to the lesser extent PAS, are willing to sell their country down the drain just for the hope for some handful of money in their hands. Pathetic indeed.

  • I hope that after four years of fair and transparent government, the people of Malaysia will judge on performance rather than selfish reasons like whether their group is favoured over others. Blind loyalty is what has got Malaysia into the mess it is. So I am not concerned if voters are likely to vote differently in 5 years time. That is the proper check and balance on the government of the day.
