Malaysians are ready for change!

 Malaysians are ready for change!

According to the Constitution of Australia and the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918, the next Australian federal election cannot be held later than November 30, 2013.
But Australia’s Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced yesterday that next federal election will be held on September 14, 2013.

Speculation about when will the next Malaysian general election be held has been going on for the last two years, yet till today the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib is still unable to make up his mind. 

There can only be one real reason for his inability to make a quick and definite decision on the polls date—that he is not confident about BN’s electoral prospects. 

There have  been a few occasions when Datuk Seri Najib and his deputy Tan Sri Muhyiddin openly expressed their confidence that BN will do well in the next general election. 

Some BN leaders even talked about the chances of BN regaining its traditional two thirds parliamentary majorities. 

But such talks are mere propaganda only. Just cakap syok sendiri. 

If things are that rosy as claimed by the BN leaders, not only there will not be dishing out of more cash incentives and announcement of more electoral goodies and promises, Najib will not delay announcing the polls date any longer and will have advised the King to dissolve the parliament.

The people can see and feel the prevalent mood for change among the people.  BN leaders can see it too. 

Nevertheless,  Najib cannot delay forever because the term of current Parliament will end on April 27. 

Najib has created a record by being a new Prime Minister who has led the government for more than 3 years without his own mandate. 

He should be brave enough to face the people and not delay anymore or try to woo support with more cash incentives. 

The recent Singapore by election where the ruling government suffered a shocker has proven that cash incentives will not bring huge or lasting electoral impact. 

I believe Malaysians who have been waiting long enough for change will not be swayed by BN’s cash incentives and all the last minute electoral promises. 

I believe Malaysians are ready for change that will bring about A Better Malaysia for All.

Come next general election, Malaysians will help Najib create another record—make him the first BN Prime Minister to lose federal power and become the parliamentary Opposition Leader!
