P116 : The Aftermath

The election is all over now & for those who have the slightest awareness of local politics, the results is nothing less than shocking. For the past few days, we have been constantly bombarded with political news, analysis, comments, speculations bla bla bla........ I think many of us are already weary of this topic. In fact, this is my 3rd straight post about the election. Anyway, I think I need to post something on the results of election here in Wangsa Maju, as some sort of closure to the previous posts.

A picture paints a thousand words?

For the Wangsa Maju parliamentary seat, PKR's candidate Wee Choo Keong defeated incumbent Yew Teong Look by a razor thin majority of only 150 votes!! I am so glad I registered & managed to contribute towards his victory, even though I predicted Yew Teong Look will win. I am glad to be proven wrong this time. When you lost even though you promise to built a new Chinese school in the area, then you know that the people here are really really pissed.

Here is a detailed breakdown of votes according to polling stations taken from Wee's blog.

Sekolah Menengah Chung Hwa
- Won by 268 votes majority -

Sekolah Ugama Kg Sungai Mulia
- Won by 438 votes majority -

Danau Kota
- Won by 326 votes majority -

Taman Ibu Kota
- Won by 98 votes majority -

Sekolah Mun Yee
- Won by 177 votes majority -

Section 2
- Won by 609 votes majority -

TAR College
- Lost by 152 votes -

Wangsa Melawati
- Won by 111 votes majority -

Postal Votes
- Lost by 1065 votes -

I certainly hope that this will be the beginning of a new dawn. Expect the next 5 years to be more colorful & exciting, meaning more political news, analysis, comments, speculations bla bla bla........*headache already*

Slightly off topic, the new Perak MB has been announced last night, it's going to be the guy from PAS. Erm...forgot his name already. 3 names (1 from each party PKR, DAP & PAS:1 Chinese, 2 Malays) were submitted to the Sultan to be chosen. Before that, everybody agree to support the new MB regardless of whoever got chosen lar. Of course, in the constitution also got a rule saying only a Malay Muslim can become MB unless the Sultan gave his consent to do otherwise.

So, the Sultan chose this guy from PAS. Then guess what? Lim Kit Siang got very upset & said that DAP will boycott the swearing in. Huh? WTF?

Here we are, still celebrating the victory of the opposition, but suddenly this guy Lim Kit Siang had to destroy our new found sense of hope. Why can't they just work together? Come on lar, the Sultan thinks the people are not ready for a non-Malay to lead the state. Also, the last time I check, DAP is supposed to be a multi-racial party wor. So stop being disrespectful lor. If it's in the olden days, can get beheaded, you know?

Just accept the decision. I know DAP got the majority of seats. Don't let the new found power corrupts you. If this is what DAP is all about, I am sure alot of Malaysians will regret their decisions to vote for you *sigh*

Update : LKS had retract back his statement *clap clap clap*
