Time For Chinese To Turn To BN

najib cny dewan perhimpunan cina penangThe political tsunami which hit Malaysia during 2008 GE12 did give a huge impact to BN where for the first time, it lost five of its ruling states – Perak, Selangor, Kelantan, Kedah and Selangor.

BN even lost two-thirds of its majority while BN’s popular votes was only around 51% from all voters who voted.

Looking back at it, most BN leaders were shocked as it was very hard to believe, proving that the claim saying that the EC is in favor of BN, is wrong.

We are lucky that the tsunami did not break BN leaders. Instead of giving up, they tried to work on the mistakes they had done.

Now, the scenario has been changed especially since leadership was changed from Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak. Transformation was made and most mistakes are fixed.

From there, it is not surprising when most political watchdogs and economists from inside and outside of Malaysia expected that this coming GE13 would go back to BN including getting the chance of winning the states that are now ruled by PR.

The trend is now showing majority both Malay Muslim and Indian voters are beginning to show their support back to BN. The same thing goes to Sabah and Sarawak Non-Malay Bumiputera.

They realize that the protest votes made during GE12 which enables PR to rule a few states is not a good thing because being ruled by PR only brought more issues instead of benefit.

Having PAS as PR’s hope in raising Malay Muslim votes is now beginning slip. PKR in the other hand, is only supported by a few Malay Muslim while the Indians are shying away from the family-based party.

PR’s hope to rule this country and to add up more states under their leadership is growing thin.

The question is, who would Chinese voters vote for in GE13? Would they go back to BN like their Malay and Indian friends?

If we are to look at the status quo, there is a little transition on Chinese voters from PR to BN, but the numbers are still small. Perhaps the others are still falling for PR’s false promises, probably.

Or perhaps the Chinese has decided to stick with PR propaganda and they do want to see PR in Putrajaya?

According to Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (ASLI), if most Chinese give their support to PR, the scenario after GE13 would show Central Government being led by Malays, Indians and other Bumiputera, while DAP will be supported by Chinese and they would remain as the opposition.

If that comes true, Chinese would be on the losing side because their representative in the Central Government led by BN will grow smaller. When that happens, who’s to be blamed?

Hence, Chinese voters need to think about this because time is running out. This is the time for them to come back to BN which is obviously, beneficial for the common good.
