Today- 8/3/08 is the polling day for Malaysia. The election is held every 5 years & it is quite unexpected that DAP will be taking over Penang and this is the 2nd time in history that penang is taken over by the opposition. The DAP-PKR-PAS combination has collectively won at least 24 seats out of the 40 seats.
In Penang, the three state seats of Tanjong and Bagan have also been won by DAP. Other Penang state seats won by DAP are Air Puteh, Prai, Batu Lanchang, Pulau Tikus and leading in all the other state seats contested by DAP.
According to Lim Kit Siang’s blog: here is a political tsunami in the 12th general election, with the Barisan Nasional suffering probably its biggest setback in history. From available reports, DAP
Being a Malaysian, i am obviously is very excited & eager to know the results. I remember 5 years ago, when i was 14 years old, i paid no attention to these politics at all but this year is different!.. I should know what is going on in our country these days as i will be one of the voters in next 5 years time.
Flash back time...... I heard from the very & indeed a professional speakers like Karpal Singh from the Opposition party (DAP) last week. He said, ' Samy Vellu, 9th of Marchwill be your "funeral". I guess he is definitely right with his 'prediction'. Samy Vellu lost to Dr DJeyakumar(PKR) for the Sungai Siput parliamentary seat which he has held for nine terms. and for your information, today (8/3/08) is Samy Vellu's 72th birthday.... & his birthday wishes of getting the place in the Parlimen have came crashing down..... sorry Mr.Samy.
about Dr.Other than that, i remembered reading one of the DAP banners at Tanjung BungahTeng Hock Nan. It stated, 'He has messed up the public transport, what do you expect from him again?'
So will BARISAN NASIONAL or the OPPOSITION PARTIES (DAP, PAS, PKR) win (overall) this year??? We will see......
DAP- Ur Rocket is really 'shooting' up high & i think it will take some time to 'land' again..
Busy with voting
