Maybe we are becoming a global village and the winds of change from one part of the globe can reach Malaysia.
Perhaps the 50th anniversary of our nationhood may have awakened many of us that the old style racist politics is not doing the nation any good.
Or is it the power of the Internet and mobile phone technology that has diminished the value of the control of MSM as people switch off.
Perhaps the last minute cancellation of the use of indelible ink and that really threatening speech from the acting PM must have upset thousands of loyal Malaysians.
Of course it could be the cumulative effect of so many different factors.
Here are the results of MALAYSIAWATCH POLL 34 that asked the question:
"For the Future of Malaysians What Would You Consider to be the Best Result of the General Elections?"
Thanks to the 70 respondents who took the straw poll.
37 readers or 53% chose "The BN Loses the 2/3 Majority and Two or Three States"
26 readers or 37% chose "The BN Loses and the Opposition Wins with a Simple Majority"
5 readers or 7% chose "I Refuse to Vote as the Elections Commission is Not Fair"
2 readers or 3% chose "The BN Wins with 2/3 Majority and all States"
It seems that a major shift will take place after the 12th General Elections. It may be the start of the blossoming of a more democratic and fair administration. Let our thousand flowers bloom.
