The 12th General Election is over. As the dust starts to settle after bruising battles among the political parties, a new political landscape emerges in Malaysia.
Yes, the voters have spoken with their votes. And were we in for some shocks.
Whilst retaining Kelantan -- quite easily it seems, the opposition also managed to secure four other states for good measure. I'll bet even the BA bigwigs were pleasantly surprised for that.
The BN would no doubt be licking their wounds. Some soul searching is in order. And heads will role, no doubt.
But have no fear Malaysians. Take it positively. Look at the wider picture.
For in a sense, the voting in of a stronger opposition will make the Government more accountable and transparent. It would force the Government to be more in touch with the realities facing common folks like you and I. The rakyat.
Now, surely this couldn't be that bad, is it?
