General election at a later date

Everyone keep saying that the general election is around the corner.

 Is it?

My last estimate was in June.

Now I'm begining to believe it will be much later.

Why?

I believe BN have finally found the right momentum for its build-up towards the election.

The coalition may want to let it rolls a bit more and only call for the election after everything were absolutely right for a BN's win.

In Johor, for instance, preparations for the election have been going relatively smoothly. Johor BN chairman Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman is keeping a time table for his visits to the peti undi areas with possible election in June as his deadline.

If the election is pushed towards the end of the year, the Johor BN machinery will have extra time to tie up all the loose end.

I think by now, BN chairman DS Najb Razak could see that it's ok to have the election a bit later as BN are really making good progress especially among the rakyat at the grassroot level.

Pakatan on the other hand are showing signs of fatigue.

* PKR's internal conflict is slowly but surely tearing the party apart. Given a bit more time they will probably implode.

* Pas has totally lose all signs of direction after abandoning its original Islamic state agenda. Now the not so hardcore party members are not even sure whether theirs is an Islamist or socialist party. No to implementing sharia, yes to a welfare state. Can change change one.

* DAP is the only Pakatan party with proper strength and direction at the moment. That is based on its not so hidden Chinese communualist agenda. But then again DAP seems to be making a lot of unforced errors of late. The latest being its ill fated joint-venture rally project with Dong Jong Zong, which backfires on them as it just revealed the party's true racialist credentials. As I had mentioned in my previous posting, some Chinese were not really comfortable by the racist demands of DAP and DJZ. They were also not so impressed by the DAP supporters, who behaved like hooligans at the rally.


 I believe, that the longer it takes for Najib to call for the general election, the more mistakes DAP will make over the coming months.

So, I think because Najib is one smart fella, he will call for the election much later this year.

My only problem with that is that I have to postpone my plan to go to Taiwan. Next year probably. Well, never mind, I'm not in a hurry.

  4. It won't be early June as many have speculated. Early June coincides with Kaamatan and Gawai in Sabah and Sarawak. You are going to piss off the Sabahan and Sarawakans if you have the general elections during the first week of June.

  5. Just do it next year, the PR will run out of issues and run out of steam by then. While the Sarawak and Sabah BN components are doing just fine, UMNO needs the MCA, Gerakan and MIC to catch up and go with the BN momentum.

    1. Run our of issues, and run out of steam ? What have you been smoking, Eddy ? It's in BN's DNA that more and more issues will come to the fore. Don't think that a few court cases on PKFZ, NFCorp, Scorpene etc will make the rakyat forget.

    2. At the very least, the rakyat knows the govt of the day had done something about the corruption that's been going on instead of brushing it off... Remember Tailorgate? - Trollz Web

  6. Kuching Besar: You want to know the real reason ? Rosie wants to stay longer in Putrajaya, and she doesn't want to be kicked out so early since all the poll predictions are that Najib will be ousted by Moo Hee Din even if BN wins.

    3. MALACCA, March 28 — Umno must not continue blocking the entry of professionals and academics into the party as this has led to the current lack of talented leaders, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today

      “For decades, Umno has ‘not allowed’ the smart ones to join the party. That is why many doctors have joined PAS,” the former prime minister was quoted as saying by Bernama Online.

      “This ultimately makes it difficult for Umno to find suitable candidates in ensuring victory in the elections,” he added.

      Johorian, are you one of the smart ones or dumb ones ?

    4. i guess Godfather has a partner!

      Big Cat i think you are amazing!

      You have a couple of dedicated airheads reading your blog posts. And yet they disagree with EVERY single post.

      Congrats and keep it up.

  8. UMNO's only hope lies in their belief that people will forget with time, the scandals such as Cowgate, PKFZ, Scorpene, Maju Expressway, West Coast Expressway, Teoh Beng Hock, Ahmad Sharbani, promised RCI on Sabah immigration.....but the longer UMNO waits, the list of issues get longer. Now UMNO has pissed off the Christians with their antiChristian crusade.

    What's next ? Oh ya, the oil subsidies get bigger and bigger.....gomen tak berani increase fuel prices, but now gotta take money from somewhere else......

  9. Before september 2012 ge13 elections, bn government must show concern for rakyat by passing the private sector retirement age act in the coming June 2012 parlimentary sessions so that those retiring this year, 2012 can be saved for extensions for working life for another 4 more years.Make all private sectors and GLCs COMPULSORY to start the extensions after june 2012 sessions of parliment soon., when the private sector retirement age act is passed.These are issues needs closing in june 2012.

    THEN BN WILL SURE WIN GE13 ELECTIONS BECAUSE YOU HAVE SAVED 6 MILLIONS WORKERS WHO ARE LIKELY TO VOTE BN IN GE13 ELECTIONS.
    BN WILL HAVE TO SHOW CONCERN FOR PEOPLE LIVELIHOOD.THE YOU ARE BETTER THAN PAKATAN RAKYAT.

    1. R2D2,
      How do they rate the quality of their cybertroopers' comments? Do they deduct points for those who post comments which make DAP people look like morons?

      Delete
    2. there's no grading in the quality of their comment. Just like their ceramah, anything will do.

      if their comment make DAP people look like moron, then the moron will deduct the trooper's payment. salary got cut meh

      so if you disguise as godfather making comment which make DAP like a moron, then godfather's pay will be deducted and if still happen, later he might be blacklisted from the scheme. cannot cari makan some more meh.

      That's why they have 10 ID each, in case this thing happen. vely clever meh

    3. Bigcat and R2D2.

      This fella call Godfather aka anjing kurap like Matt Sabun la. He even dont understand what he is talking about. Only talk nonsense and no substance. Do you think rakyat believe and buta buta follow this kind of stupid and moron people ka. Come on la you guys. Stop cheating yourself and rakyat. You are not the pejuang like your grandparent and great grandparent facing lot of difficulties and challenge, even sometimes their prepare to sacrifice their life, for the interest of this country. Godfather, your contribution to our country sebesar habuk pun tak dak. And then talk to much you are the taxpayer konon. You are a paid taxpayer with no moral. Actually you and all your comments and all the people like you are no value at all. Your value only 1.50 per comment that you send.

  12. with the latest case of Hong Leong Finance and Anwar refusal to accept the subpoena by the court, my bet it will be later than June.

    Not to mention the Anwar Vs Nalla case which Nalla cant wait to be in court with Shafee Abdullah defending Nalla ( remember him ? Anwar's former top lawyer )

    he he he

  13. I don't think we should delay further. UMNO's election is coming and all the knifes will be out in the open. Why take this risk. And after all, would peoples still remember the 100, 200 and 500 we have been dishing. How many are still talking about the 100 allowance per student we gave last Dec n January?

    ReplyDelete
  14. R2D2, Godfather get 1.50 for every comment he send ? Please jangan layan this fella anjing kurap, tin kosong. Talk to much, but no substance. He is very selfish. Only think for his own interest. He is already rich and we make him rich some more.

  15. Hi. Just to share something with regards to this story. I think you are right as I just came back from a meeting with the State Govt today. For those who are unaware, PM is having his another tour call 1 Malaysia, Janji Ditepati. The tour will kick off in Batu Pahat this Saturday and wil be only ended in Pahang by September. Heard that he wants this tour to be a real Rakyat oriented without any political flags or banners and even no papers advertisement to be put for this tour. So expecting a year end's election
