KATAKS! OK-lah if You Resign Your Seats and Get Re-Elected
That seems to be the majority view of the 101 readers who take the MALAYSIAWATCH POLL 35 that posed the question:
What Do You Think of MPs who Cross Over?
Are they lining up like these cute frogs?
52 or 51% picked "Perfectly OK if they Resign and Re-Contest to Let Voters Choose"
17 or 17% chose "OK if No Money is Being Paid"
14 or 14% chose "Such People Have No Moral Courage and Principles"
11 or 11% chose "Why Not? Politicians are Mostly Crooks, anyway"
7 or 7% chose "I am Aghast at the Power Grabbing - It's Unfair to Voters"
It is interesting to note:
21% of the pollsters are quite annoyed with elected changing their allegiance.
11% are quite cynical about politicians(crooks?)
17% seem to be rather naive(zero inducement to switch sides?)
