BATU TALAM STATE ELECTIONS - WILL THE RAKYAT MAKE A CHANGE

The rakyat at Batu Talam State constituency have been having a hay days for this couple of weeks due to the election of a state assemblyman as a result of the death of the Barisan Nasional representative. Prior to nominations, the Opposition parties had collectively denied participating in boycott of the various discrepancies in the election procedures and machineries which the Election Commission had fail to adhere and made a deaf ear due to its allegiance to the ruling government, Barisan Nasional although it should be independent, so as to speak. This Opposition boycott is a blow to the ruling government, Barisan Nasional as to the rakyat and also to the world which will perceive the Malaysian Government as not as what it protrait to be as a democratic, clean and caring government.

Although money politics would be rampant in Batu Talam, where the Barisan Nasional will buy votes as usual by inducing monetary hand-outs, it is really surprising that the Barisan Nasional had to use this very low tactics by undermining the 21 year old first timer Independent candidate although having claimed to be the 'people's champion' . It is for sure the Barisan Nasional wants to show the Malaysian rakyat that the Malaysian rakyat still support the ruling government although reports speaks otherwise. Will the rakyat or vote eligible rakyat at Batu Talam vote against the Barisan Nasional? It has been publicly know that the Prime Minister has left this responsiblility to his deputy, Deputry Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to deliver the seat again to Barisan Nasional. Various incidence had taken place in Malaysia that shows a poor or uncaring report of the Barisan Nasional, like the massive floods in Johor, toll hikes, and many more.

Come this Sunday, January 28 the rakyat at Batu Talam will deliver their say....VOTE the Barisan Nasional and keep on with this corrupt, irresponsible and uncaring government or VOTE FOR THE INDEPENDENT candidate to show their protest for the Barisan Nasional to change their attitude by being corrupt-free, responsible and caring government.

Whoever wins, the next general elections will be very soon which will show how the ruling party, Barisan Nasional will fare.

A vote for the INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE is a vote that the Malaysians really care for their country.
