I had mixed feelings about the newly completed PRU 12....the results were shocking but somewhat expected in certain parts, made stronger by the influence of the "resurrected leader". Somehow I was quite open to the idea that the underdogs can make a difference in Malaysia. Maybe we are too complacent and too comfortable in our life not to want changes but I think it's high time that some of us get used to it.
This is my second time voting, and I must say that I was a bit wiser in chosing the better candidate. Notice that I didn't say the "right" candidate, as I don't have much faith in political parties. I don't think it's wrong not to vote for the current ruling party, I think the trend now is that people vote for the leaders that they think have integrity, passion and can address the people's issues. I think the new leaders have a great burden and expectations of the people to carry on, so everyone's eyes are on them to perform the best to fullfill their manifesto. The same goes to the current rulling party, they have to work double or even triple harder in order to gain the peoples' confidence in them again. The theme "Berkhidmat Untuk Negara" should be their motto and not just something that people mock. The government really do have to work for the people and not just reap the benefits for themselves.
Only time will tell, or in another 4 years time, we can tell the difference!
