The only DAP guy that I hope will win in the coming Johor election is the party's incumbent Mengkibol assemblyman Chew Chong Sin, or Chew Zhong Xin, as according to my mother's spelling of his name.
My mom and him went to the same Kluang Chung Hwa Primary School.
I don't know Chew nor familiar with his work as a wakil rakyat but my mom and relatives in Singapore are taking the trouble to return to Kluang to vote for him.
So, he better wins.
I don't want my mom and relatives to make all that efforts and risk taking for nothing.
I actually told my mom it's okay for her to balik kampung to vote but not the elderlies in the family because of Covid risks, but she said the old folks were the ones who really insisted on voting for Chew.
She said they like Chew very much and that he's a good assemblyman.
Well, I just reminded my mom to take really good care of the elderlies and try the best not to expose them to risks of Covid infection, especially at the polling stations.
As for myself, I have changed my voting address outside of Johor. So, I won't be voting on March 12.
But I do hope to visit my home state when the official campaigning period starts just to get a peek at what's happening down there.
At the moment, it's all seemed comical, especially on the side of the anti-BN gang.
There's that PKR quarrel with new party Muda, PKR quarrel with Amanah, DAP quarrel among themselves, Pejuang and Warisan unrealistic ambitions, and antics of some mosquitoes.
Actually there have been more stories about them than those about BN in Johor.
I'm sure BN has its own troubles but they seemed to be able to handle it better.
Guess, Hasni has been quite good at keeping things under wraps.
Buat kerja je Datuk, pedulikan je yang buat bising tu.
That would be my message to him.
Anyway, I do hope BN will win and I am confident that it will win.
However, if the opposition have really good candidates like that Chew fella, then it would be good for those candidates to win too.
The main thing for me is for the people to be well represented by good wakil rakyat and hopefully the state government which will be formed after the election would be strong and stable in order to better manage and develop Johor.
