I REMEMBER a time when a mobile phone was for phone calls and text messages. Today, almost everybody has a smart phone and even those who don't would have a feature phone that makes yesterday's smart phone look dumb.
THERE'S a song by classic rock band Queen called I'm In Love With My Car. I'm sure many guys can identify with that song for many guys literally love their cars. While I'm a huge fan of Queen, I don't quite love cars. To me, a car is just a means of transport; something that gets me from point A to point B.
Much has been written about MCA and Gerakan's decision not to join the cabinet following their poor performance in the recently concluded general elections.
WHEN Pakatan Rakyat managed to deny Barisan Nasional its traditional two-thirds majority in 2008, many wondered if it was just a fluke. As the saying goes, one swallow does not a summer make. Well, it's now two elections in a row where BN's two-thirds majority has been denied. It's pretty obvious that the two-party system is here to stay.
Malaysia’s most highly anticipated election has come and gone. Now, we are left with the results, which will have significant and long-lasting repercussion on all parties. Today, I’ll look how the parties fared in federal and state seats and the phenomenon known as the “Chinese tsunami”.
The results of highly anticipate GE13 was not something either party will be happy with. Pakatan Rakyat failed in its bid to take over Putrajaya. Meanwhile, Barisan Nasional failed to win back key states and a two-thirds majority in Parliament.
THIS Sunday, Malaysians will vote in our country's 13th General Elections. The choice is between transformation or reformation. Another way to put it is evolution or revolution. If you like change to be slow and steady, transformation and evolution is the way to go and Barisan Nasional should be the party you to vote for.
THE interesting thing about GE13 and what makes it so exciting is that it's the first national polls where the winner is not a foregone conclusion. So, what can voters expect to see in a Barisan Nasional (BN) or Pakatan Rakyat (PR) victory?
VOTERS who have decided to back Barisan Nasional (BN) know what kind of cabinet composition to expect should BN return to power. The prime minister will be the president of Umno and his deputy in the party will also be the deputy prime minister. Each component party will have its seat allocation in the cabinet. The formula might be tweaked a little but voters roughly know what to expect from a BN government.
