It’s the middle of the week: too close to Monday, too far from Friday. We’re proud to bring you Jilian Ng’s Malaysia-nomics (taking over from Antares’ Midweek Folk Wisdom) every Wednesday for the next two months. The pen of this young university student pokes gentle fun at current issues with charm and bite. A small taste of the intelligence that lives on in bright young Malaysians – YUMMEH!
WIDESPREAD SPECULATION OF SNAP POLLS AS EARLY AS JAN 2011
Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin: The weaknesses seen in PR parties, particularly in PKR, would not play a major contributing factor in BN’s strategies to regain support. “I have always maintained that our enemies’ weaknesses are not our strengths and unless we address our own strengths and actually pull through with our reforms, it is not going to be any easier for us. We need to concentrate and ensure that there is traction from the people in responding to our strengths. That would be the positive sign. I do not believe that just because our enemies are doing badly, it is time for us to strike”
DAP’s Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua however disagreed with the notion that BN had an edge above PR in the coming polls, pointing out that many events like the flip-flopping of national policies had served to cancel out BN’s other transformative moves. “I agree that things have declined but it does not mean total reversal. So we will win in some and lose in some”
Bersih 2.0 chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan: “Putrajaya does not belong to any parties, but it belongs to the people of Malaysia. We the people will decide who can administer Putrajaya”
