Opposition takes over Penang, Kedah, Selangor, Perak and still retains Kelantan. Sounds just fine by me. People want change. Previous government was lousy. Quite interesting to see the results of this election. Perhaps I should’ve voted after all.
As a Malay and a Muslim, I feel insulted to have political party shouting out “We will take care of you Malays and your privileges” or “We will take care of you Muslims and your privileges” as if generalizing us Malays and Muslims the poor weaklings. As long as racial and religious rights are fairly practiced, I don’t think any particular people needs a privilege.
Is there such thing as special privilege to certain kind of people in constitution when prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) ruled Madinah?
Not that I am saying poor weaklings shouldn’t be helped, but those people needed help no matter religion or race. No race or religion needs special attention. It’s up to individual. Either your survive, or you don’t!
If a vote is just for the sake of “my people”, maybe nothing has really changed after all, except for the choice of political party.
This election already denied BN 2/3 majority. It’s a change, not necessarily a good one, but not necessarily bad either. Let’s hope for better Malaysia.
