It has been noted that Datuk M. Kayveas seems to be losing grounds with the rakyat at Taiping since he has failed to honour pledges made and due to 'in-fighting' between the Barisan Nasional partners regarding seat allocation, belittling party leaders and various other matters. Kayveas is the sole candidate of the People's Proggressive Party (PPP) for a parliamentary seat.
Since Kayveas had not performed his responsibility as pledged by him, the Taiping voters are strongly opposing him and may elect DAP candidate Nga Kor Ming.
The Taiping constituency has 65,455 voters comprising of 50.3 percent Chinese, followed by Malays (32.3 percent) and Indians (13.3 percent).
Its has been revealed that Kayveas has failed to honour the pledges that he would reopen the Taiping airport, allocate land for SRJK(C) Hua Lian 2 and SMJK Hua Lian. But none of these had materialised.
Furthermore, it was revealed that Kayveas has promised 12 Chinese guilds with unfulfilled monetary pledges since after presenting mock cheques to gain 'cheap publicity' which he is fond of and political mileage at the expense of the Taiping resident that he is seen doing his work.
Basing on these factor and with the current attitude of the rakyat against the Barisan Nasional which is uncaring, ineffective, inefficient and corrupted, Kayveas chances in Taiping is very slim.
It was also noted that Kayveas was also never a member of the PPP and there are questions raised how he could be fielded as Barisan Nasional candidate. It was revealed that he had 'conned' the Registrar of Societies by dubious means to gain recognisation as its President. These issues have been wide-spread and would add to his defects.
Whatever noted, it all depends on the Taiping voters. If they still want to retain this 'con' and 'untrustworthy' Kayveas or vote for the DAP candidate Nga to show the Barisan Nasional that they are really unhappy with Kayveas and the way the country has been managed by the Barisan Nasional.
