Good or Bad? What Do You Think?

Malaysia 2008 Election has just been carried up yesterday (8 Aug 08), it has became a hot & interesting issue which us Malaysians (perhaps the foreign countries as well) really care of. As the election results will determine the fate & the movement of the Malaysia in the coming next 5 years.

Im sure you know better than me on the latest 2008 Election results, as you might be one of the bloggers who blog about this issue very closely & professionally. Don't you? Below is part of the news grabbed from sinchew-i.com for your reading pleasure: -

國陣失檳雪霹吉政權‧國會三分二優勢不保
a
(吉隆坡)國陣在本屆大選蒙受重挫,除了再痛失4個州政權,即檳城、雪蘭莪、霹靂和吉打外,也無法從回教黨手中奪回吉蘭丹州政權;而在吉隆坡聯邦直轄區則幾乎全面淪陷,只保住一個國會議席。
a
截至凌晨2時,國陣已贏得125個國席,再度執政;而反對黨總共贏得了78席,否決了國陣的三分之二多數議席;還有19個國席的成績尚未公佈。
a
另一方面,霹靂州政權在凌晨2時左右落入反對黨手裡。反對黨奪得30席,國陣只保住29席。反對黨在檳州40個州議席中拿下25席,其中行動黨競選19個州議席全勝,預料行動黨秘書長林冠英將出任檳州首席部長,一圓該黨多年來執政檳州之夢。
a
吉打州已由獲得最多議席的回教黨執政,而雪州政權則在午夜12時宣告易手,預料將由公正黨代表出任大臣。公正黨顧問拿督斯里安華於午夜在其住家召開緊急新聞發布會,而反對黨支持者也在午夜時分圍繞在雪州政府大廈。............

My Words:

Breathtaking news, BN has lost its political powers in 4 states: Penang, Kedah, Selangor & Perak, while failed to grab the political power from the PAS in Kelantan. This meant that in the next 5 years the opposition parties will be in power to rule in the 5 states by establish a new state government in each state very soon. But Im wondering, why should DAP, PKR or PAS still known as a opposition party? Is it just because of the political powers of the Malaysia are still majority under BN?
a
Although the opposition parties had a flying colour election results in West Malaysia, they DON'T in Borneo Island (Sabah & Sarawak)! ~Sigh~ In my state (Sarawak), the lawyer Chong Chieng Jen (张健仁) is the only DAP parliament member of Kuching Town who able to stand firm & won in 2008 Election. DAP had conducted a "10,000 People Assembly" in Chong Lin Park, Kuching a night before the 8.3.08, and the next day evening he managed beat his competitor the lawyer Alan Sim (沈耀荣) with the majority votes of almost 10,000 votes (actual votes: 9,952).....AMAZING enough!!!

So, what do you think? What is your first thought & reaction when you get known the above news? Well, is a good or is a bad, Im not in the position to further comment on this topic as Im not really familiar with the political issues. For me, please just let them have an opportunity & a try, and let the "time" be our most honest witness to prove & tell us the outcome in future!

Penang now is a DAP island, I am not sure this is good or bad, the good is we show people that penang people able to unite together. Bad thing is we scare that every things request will be stopped by parliment.

"This meant that in the next 5 years the opposition parties will be in power to rule in the 5 states by establish a new state government in each state very soon."

It won't be 5 years before the next election. Usually it is about 4 years between two elections. In fact, BN may even call for snap election after 2 or 3 years in a hope that they would regain 2/3 majority in the Parliament.

BTW, DAP, PAS and PKR are no longer 'opposition parties' in the states they rule. They are the 'ruling parties'!

What I believe is that this country really needs a strong opposition as check and balance. The past becomes the strong proof, winning 2/3 majority means they can do anything they like. I'm happy with the current situation. Meanwhile, the opposition just need a little more time to show us their true colours and capabilities.
