Malaysia's 12th election has ended yesterday and the results was better than I can ever imagine..Opposition party had unexpectedly (at least by BN people) created a 'polling tsunami' when they won the hot seats over well-known BN leaders..On the other hand, I guess we as Malaysian has sent quite a strong and clear message to the government that we demand for a more transparent leadership.
Yesterday was my first time voting and I was there at the counting place waiting for the results for Wangsa Maju's Parliament. I was so happy and relieved that Wee Choo Keong (PKR) won and even more happier to hear the opposition party had won quite a number of seats. I have no grudge against BN and yes, I am perfectly aware that UMNO has been contributing so much since Malaysian Independence. However, the leaders back then was so much more better than these days..The leaders back then put their own priorities and needs second to the nation and its people. Today, it happens the other way around.
I voted because I want changes to be made, I voted because I demand for a better leadership and I voted to send a message that the young people now a days tidak boleh senang-senang ditipu and we don't have such a thinking that goes ' kalu BN tak memerintah, kite makan ubi..'..There are more and more professionals that I believe, can see and judge what is happening now a days and this can be seen by the voting majority in big and well-developed cities especially Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Penang..These (the young ones) are the people who will be voting in the next election and more and more new young voters will be voting at that point of time..
I hope, there will be a more transparent government as well as leadership as the opposition parties will be filling quite a number of seats in Parliament and I hope, their promises to the voters will be fulfilled. Let us hope for a change!
