Pakatan shouldn't worry too much about a rainy general election

GE15 is almost certain to be held in the coming weeks.

At least that's the indications according to the latest reports.

Umno has even started to clean up house by throwing out some of its garbage.

Good lah. Hopefully the party will do more of that.

The more Umno get rid of such parasites, the better its chances would be in GE15.

Anyway, I'm now recuperating from my ailment in the East Coast.

Mostly just laying down a lot to rest my body.

It's raining here almost everyday but they were just moderate showers, especially in the late evening or early morning.

Guess the end year monsoon has already started a bit.

Well, the last time we had a general election around this time was in November 1999.

I was living in the north at that time and remember that it was quite wet.

There was no major floods though.

Voters turnout of that general election was 69.3 per cent.

For comparison, voters turnout in the general elections after that are better.  It was 73.9 per cent in 2004, 74.98 per cent in 2008, 84.84 per cent in 2013 and 82.32 per cent in 2018.

The general elections in 2004 and 2008 were held in March while those in 2013 and 2018 were in May.

Did the rain caused the lower turnout in 1999?


But then again the turnout of general election in 1995, which was held in April was even lower at 68.3 per cent.

The voters turnout of general election in 1990 was even more interesting. Held on Oct 20 and 21 that year, it was 72.3 per cent, which was just slightly lower than those in 2004 and 2008.

So, it can't be just the rain.

My theory is that it's just because more people became very interested to participate in the political process during the 2013 and 2018 general election.

Who are these people, who became more politically aware the past one decade?

I believe the DAP people know the answer to that better than me.

You know, those who said we don't want to be second, third, fourth or fifth class citizens etc.

Go and ask them, okay.

Well, things have not been very well for them ever since the implosion of the Pakatan government just 22 months after their victory in 2018.

Things have been bad since then with many losing interest in politics as they struggle to make ends meet.

The Covid-19 pandemic and war in. Ukraine had made things worse not only in Malaysia but also the rest of the world.

I believe many are not so enthusiastic to vote in GE15, notwithstanding whether it rains or shines.

After all, they had tried Pakatan in power for 22 months and it didn't seem to make that much difference if not making things worse.

That would probably be the real reason for a possible lower voter turnout in GE15 rather than the coming monsoon rain.

Anyway, I don't think Pakatan and the other anti-BN/Umno people should lose hope.

In the monsoon general election in 1999,  BN, then led by Dr Mahathir took quite a beating due to Anwar's jailing the previous year.

Maybe things would be even better this time.

Who knows, voters may now be very disgusted with Umno after Najib was sent to jail for corruption the other day.

They may then overwhelmingly vote for another taste of Pakatan rule.

Yeah, maybe Pakatan may even make the same promises that they did in 2018 and the rakyat will believe them again like last time.

Oh, by the way, as Anwar said, his jailing was not the same as Najib's.

Malaysians are more sympathetic to people who were jailed after being found guilty of committing sodomy than corruption....aren't they?


  1. sodomy is wrong or illegal in some countries and to some people, is curi also the same? some people okay with curi?

    1. Anwar's sodomy/adultery or Najib's theft, which one is the gravest of offence to Allah? Could you pls enlighten me if you're a Muslim?

    2. Anwar just impose himself on a number of person. Najib ravage the whole nation with insatiable greed. Both will meet their maker and get what they deserve.

    3. The woman and the man guilty of zināʾ (for fornication or adultery),- flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allah, if ye believe in Allah and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment."

      — Qur'an, Sura 24 (An-Nur), ayat 2[21]
      "And those who accuse chaste women then do not bring four witnesses, flog them, (giving) eighty stripes, and do not admit any evidence from them ever; and these it is that are the transgressors. Except those who repent after this and act aright, for surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."

      — Qur'an, Sura 24 (An-Nur), ayat 4–5[22]
      As for male and female thieves, cut off their hands for what they have done—a deterrent from Allah. And Allah is Almighty, All-Wise.1
      Quran verse 5.38

    4. I just simply don’t understand what kind of appetite or materialistic lust the wife had which made the husband had no qualms stealing billions from the state’s coffers? If that is not enough, the wife too went around taking large commission and percentages of government lucrative contracts. Coming of humble background growing up eating belacan, budu, petai, masak lemak sambal tumis but developing unusual high taste befitting old money noblemen and royalty. Living a life of luxury and opulent wealth.

    5. Bro greed has no bound. Paul Getty used to said if you can count your money you are not rich enough. It is not enough that you are pm of country .You want more. It is not enough that you ruled the country more than half of century. You want forever in perpetuity as if it is your divine right. You bribed . You abused your power to justify all the means. You sodomised a personperson you sinned. When you steal from a countey

    6. Anon 1:18
      What is your instinctive reaction if anwar had once preyed on you or your offspring or sibling or relative or friend? Could you remain silent or just sit around while waiting for the punishment in the Hereafter? Or would you opt to forgive and forget, and wholly let Allah handle it? Is that possible, especially after seeing him walk free with a pardoned Trump Card. And now, he is set to once again be announced as the PM candidate of PH. Oh dear, what the world is coming to when a convicted sodomite gets ushered into Putrajaya if PH wins? Wow, as fate would have it. Let's see.

    7. Anonymous 23:17 are you now referring anwar is a sodomite rapist. I always thought his partners were willing partners.

    8. Anon 03:30 Direct the question to whom the sodomiser is for further details when you chance to see him during his on-going self-promoting PM-to-be rounds. Anyone will doubt, if no victim is inflicted, why would he bother to shield behind the PARDONED trump card? Yeah, the card has indeed white-washed and air-brushed him perfectly, just as he wishes for.

  2. "After all, they had tried Pakatan in power for 22 months and it didn't seem to make that much difference if not making things worse."

    Actually, your paymasters would still be running free if BN had own, and still spending OUR money on this kind of stuff:

    I know you don't have a problem with that, but try to balance the 3.3 million they can spend on luxuries in one day.....vs. the RM4 you get per post.

    Not so smart, huh : )

    1. It’s 1 USD = 4.68 MYR now, so to speak.

  3. Hope the elections will be soon. Let the people decide.
    Apa yang susah hati sangat.

  4. Dear Annie don't worry you just write your views. Many of us are with you. The silent majority.

  5. Hope you silly ppl understand that Dumno has raped Malaysia for 65 yrs and u still want it to rape Malaysia, wake up morons

    1. Ya la, Dumno had raped the whole nation for decades. But then, if you vote PH in and put anwar onto the top seat, he will sure sodomise each one of us. Well, it is two sides of the same coins. Either way, we will be trapped with no chance of seeing the light at the end of tunnel. Rape or belakang mari, you decide!

    2. Come on you need to give some credit to unmo founder good work in the early years. I think rape and pillaging by umno starting halfway thru Mahathir tenure. Last year's 30 years umno have gone to the dogs.

  6. Besides MatSabu who else do u people think PH3 will appoint as their PM should they win GE15?

    Any ideas?

    Professor Nasi Lemak

    1. AI NR are damaged goods. ZH LGE are about to expire goods. OTHERS are tainted with parasites .DO you still want to buy these goods.Go ahead man buy them at your peril and be damed and foreever make your peace.

  7. " his jailing was not the same as Najib's"

    Well, sure, of course, not the same. Najib purloined while he...hmmm...buggered. He just failed to battle his abnormal sexual behaviours altogether. This unabashed human should have just confessed to committing one of the major sins in Islam rather than rhetorically twisting around which makes him an ever standing joke. Maybe some ignorant people have sympathised with him after reckoning those crocodile tears of his family, which was his makeshift lethal weapon and final straw to rescue him from the muddy puddle that he himself incurred. And now, Najib wants a pardon as well. Will Najib lucky enough to survive the "ordeal" like him, somehow someday? Well, GE15 is just around the corner.

    1. Najib stole my tax money and I am personally impacted. Anwar buggered willing participant. I sense you feel he buggered you too. His sins is with God. He is not the only one sinning against god in this world. In west the gay are visible. In malaysia too there are many underground gays. I suspect some of my friends are underground gay. Do I hate or dispise my friend, not really. There are very nice and kind human being, the way I figure is let God deal with them (assuming you believe in the almighty and trust the almighty may or may not act on their sin)

    2. Well said, 16:27, if that is the case, pls ask your master to stop feigning innocence. Period.

  8. Do I make my friends declare they are gay. It is not my concern whether do or don't.

  9. Haiyaa.. Najib dh dhukum. Nape tak abis2 mengoyan sebut nama dia? Dah trkena bahang sumpah laknat dia ke? Siang malam Najib Najib Najib, dah brjangkit penyakit Atok ke?

    Tak risau ke? Katakaloo PH3 menang, calon yg terbaik jd PM hangpa may be MatSabu.

    Sikalang spend more time buat "forensic audit n investigation" (saranan Anwar) atas bakal PM hangpa.

    Jgn satni menang baru kalut pakat bersilat nak lantik PM.. last2 jadi macam atok, 22bulan cabut lari pula lagi.. payah tau.

    1. Sumpah laknat dah makan diri. Tu lah jangan suka sumpah sana sini. Ini baru kurungan dunia dah mengeletar nak keluar. Walau pun hidup seribu tahun kalau tak bertaubat apa guna.

  10. Najib was a nitwit who blundered to have wedded an avaricious divorcee which, at long last, has cost him dearly. Wonder if he ever regretted that bygone choice pick.
