Talked with my friends in Melaka and they all said BN will win the state election tomorrow.
No surprise actually if that's the case, because Pakatan and Perikatan both seemed to have failed to raise their game during the campaigning period.
But then again, I'm writing this far from Melaka.
I'm not risking Covid-19 to be there just to check on things myself.
So, there is still the probability that what I'm writing here is not going to be true.
Well, whatever it is, I still wish for that Rauf guy to lose in Tanjung Bidara.
Other than that, I don't really mind BN winning the election.
After all, BN is offering the half way point between Pakatan and Perikatan.
Pakatan is offering what we see during their 22 months in power while Perikatan promising something like during Muhyiddin's administration with a bit more dose of the Malay Islamic stuff.
BN should be somewhere in the middle of those two.
Sure, they will say if BN wins, things will be back to bad and corrupt again, but just compare the Pakatan and Muhyiddin administrations with that of the previous BN government and honestly tell when was Malaysia better.
Seriously, was life better after BN fell in 2018?
Now, I believe that many people in Melaka will one way or another ask themselves that question before casting their votes tomorrow.
Bear in mind that roughly 68 per cent of them are Malays.
I'm quite sure most of the non-Malays will vote Pakatan, but the real fight in Melaka is between Umno and Pribumi Bersatu.
And I don't see Pribumi Bersatu leading Perikatan to victory despite teaming up with Pas to paddle a more Malay Islamic ideology.
The Malays may be put off by Pakatan's liberal ideology which many of them see as not being in their interest but they were also by right not so keen on Perikatan due to the bad memories of Muhyiddin's administration and his party's wishy washy image.
I also believe that BN would actually remind them of better times.
They will try not to see the flaws of Umno and its ugly corrupt tag to get back to that time.
Despite all the accusations about Umno leaders and their allies, for them life was better back then.
I know, some of you will say what I see and write here is shitty, but that's just how things seemed to be in Melaka at the moment.
