I was seated next to a guy at the mamak stall the other day and we started talking about the forthcoming election and he said something interesting when we touched on the subject about enrolling foreigners to vote. He said that Malaysia could be the only country in the world that is doing that. The young (Malay) man was shaking his head. This is just one malpractice engaged to ensure victory at the polls and at all costs. There are more dirty tricks (read seditious activities). I'm embarrassed to even write about them. The end justifies the means - never more true! Disgusting is all I can say!
The Opposition is not accepting the decision - Pakatan rejects GE13 results, cries fraud
Pakatan Rakyat should not concede defeat!
