Election goodies started already?

Taken below from the Star.

Senapang Besar dari kerajaan BN have arrived in Penang to give support to Dr Koh to fight for his political career and what Malaysian hope to see a sway in the popular votes to the Opposition. It would be more dramatic to see Penang ruled by the DAP-PKR and let the BN taste its own medicine in becoming the Opposition like their counterpart in Kelantan.

So much so that almost all top BN guns are in town including Menteri Besars from neighbouring states join hand in hand to give the goodies.

Well I must say that the Government is worried and as such giving temporary aids of millions of ringgit in aid to Chinese schools, the poor and non-governmental organisations, the goodies have just started starting with danger states. Next Kelantan followed by Terengganu. Million and millions of Ringgit will be poured. And that is the sign of the start of the General Elections.

In order to wrestle the Penang state legislative assembly, the Opposition must win more than 20 seats with DAP fielding 19 seats and the rest to be won by PKR. This is necessary to form the next state government in Penang. On the federal level, the Opposition MUST win at least 75 seats in Parliament with DAP fielding at least 55 Parliamentary seats to take the 2/3 of parliament.

The Malaysian people cannot stop to just relax and having the apathy attitude. There are so many national issues from issues of economy to religion to human rights and we are the stakeholders of this country. UMNO and Barisan Nasional has repeatedly rape this nations right to exists in a competitive world. With globalisation imminent, we cannot be lack behind to serve only a community and that makes Malaysia backwards. All race must rise to the occasion and that includes the Malays as they form the 60% plus majority in this country. The country must be progressive to meet the greater challenge.


PENANG: The big guns from the Barisan Nasional descended here yesterday, giving away millions of ringgit in aid to Chinese schools, the poor and non-governmental organisations.

The show of force, led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi with several Cabinet ministers, is a clear indication that the state will be the main battleground in the coming general election.

Today, it will be the turn of the Opposition bigwigs, led by Parti Keadilan Rakyat de facto chief Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, to raise the election fever further.

Apart from Abdullah and senior Umno leaders, other Barisan Nasional big guns who were here yesterday included MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting and his deputy Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy.

Also here were MIC deputy president Datuk G. Palanivel and party secretary-general Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam.

The Mentris Besar of Perlis, Kedah, Perak – Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim, Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid and Datuk Seri Mohamad Tajol Rosli Ghazali – were also present.
