Look on the Bright Side of the Malaysian Elections

Although the BN lost heavily in many states, it still controls Parliament with a comfortable majority.

All political party strategists should now be working hard to plan for the next GE to be held within 5 years as Malaysians are now well informed with many sources of information and a greater awareness of human rights and current affairs.

The local MSM should carry more balanced reporting and editing as people are more savvy these days; especially the young and educated.

During the past month countries in other nations produced the following results:

Kenya - results disputed and riots

Pakistan - President now has to rule with an Opposition in control of Parliament

Spain - no change in government but Prime Minister has to operate with a minority

In fact the results in Malaysia can be considered ideal - the BN still runs the nation with a stable majority allbeit not a 2/3 supremacy and the BR runs a few states to give them the opportunity to show us they have a better way to serve Malaysians.

We could not have asked for a better result and the race is now on to prove to Malaysians that we can change for the better.
