Five historic changes in 14GE on May 9, 2018

I call on the voters of Kedah to write history by bringing about five historic changes in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018, viz:

  1. Change the Malaysian Prime Minister;
  2. Change the Malaysian Government in Putrajaya;
  3. Change the Kedah Mentri Besar;
  4. Change the Kedah State Government; and
  5. Change the federal and state government polices which are detrimental to the interests and welfare of Malaysians.

I have just read the Malaysiakini report of a Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) survey which predicted that the Kedah State Assembly will be faced with a hung assembly following the May 9 polls.

According to Mohd Azizuddin Mohd Sani, who headed the research team, BN was predicted to win 16 out of 36 seats, followed by Pakatan Harapan (12) and PAS (8).

I conducted a straw poll immediately among the people who are here to attend the DAP ceramah, and there is incredulity and disbelief that PAS could win as many as eight seats, some thinking that it would be a miracle if PAS could win two seats!

There is also disbelief that Barisan Nasional could win 16 seats as it seems to be majority view that Pakatan Harapan can win more than half the Kedah State Assembly seats to form the next State Government of Kedah.

May 9 is therefore set to be a historic watershed in Malaysian History.

If the people of Philipines can change their President on May 9 two years ago, and the peop[le of South Korea changed their President on the same date last year, there is no reason why on May 9 this year, Malaysians cannot change the Prime Minister.
