Who Is Malaysian First In Good Deeds?

Hantu Laut

Is the BN in a scurry or would there be a tectonic shift in Hulu Selangor?

Tengku Razaleigh predicted grave portent for BN in Hulu Selangor and bad omen. He said majority of Malays wouldn't vote for BN candidate.

In wide contrast to Razaleigh's prophecy other political pundits including Malaysian Insider which had never had kind words for Najib, have taken different view of the probable outcome of the Hulu Selangor by-election.The groundswell seems to be shifting in favour of the BN, at least among Malays and Indians.

By rights, the BN candidate for Hulu Selangor should be a Malay. The fielding of an Indian candidate should be seen as a sacrifice by UMNO, in spite of it being a Malay majority area.PKR, more likely, would field a Malay candidate.

Lim Kit Siang should put his money where his mouth is.Who is Malaysian first in deeds and who is Malaysian first in lip service.He can only talk and ridicule 1 Malaysia. What has he done? He has done more to divide the races and heightened racial sentiments.At least, Najib practises what he preaches.

Malays formed over 50% of voters in the area while Indians comprises less than 20%.The Chinese votes at 26% will be comfortably Pakatan's main trust of support.

The constituents are fed up with all talk and no action.

1. Bro,I think for the record Lim Kit Siang's deed does not reflect his words. He has always been and will always be a Chauvinist of his race until the day he dies. He can say anything he wants but the perception is he is Chinese first,second and third. He has done almost nothing to promote racial harmony in Malaysia since he first entered politics in 1966, lets not begin to talk about 1 Malaysia which he despises. Just observe the antics of the DAP led Penang State Government and the then Perak State Government controlled by the DAP. Enough said about Kit Siang and his DAP.

2. The Hulu Selangor by-election is for BN to lose, there is no doubt about that. I hope PM Najib choose the right candidate and since it will be a MIC candidate I hope that it will not be Samy Vellu's chosen one as the Indians are dead set against Samy or anybody remotely connected to him. A feasible option would be to choose any of the MIC young guns which will be acceptable to the local UMNO,MIC and MCA machinery members.

This is important as it would be likely 75% of Chinese votes will go to the Pakatan same as 2008 and the battle royale is to winning the hearts and minds of the Malay, Indian and Orang Asli votes and hoping that some Chinese community would follow suit.

This is a test for Najib as well as Anwar and the party with the best candidate, best strategy and unified election machinery will win. I believe it will be BN and for that to happen the candidate must be chosen by Najib and not Samy Vellu.
