There are many theories circulated regarding why Pakatan could not win the seats in rural areas. Yes, its true that the 'ubah' message has successfully penetrated urban areas, but as for rural folk, they are more conservative and depend heavily on handouts from the government. PKR needs new tactics to reach out to the rural folk.
Cry Malaysians cry, but only for a short while, there are a lot more things to do to achieve our dreams. For those who have made great effort to go to vote, thank you so much! Your votes might not translate into a change of government for now, but they have surely contributed to a better Malaysia in the future. Only when you voice out, that the government will be vigilant and accountable to you. You deserve better. Your votes in GE13 have also translated into great determination in me to ensure that I will do all I can to ensure Malaysia will one day be free from corruption, abuse of power and racism. We will go forward in unity and good economic progress. Indeed, the journey is longer than expected, but let's don't lose hope, let's continue to believe that when all of us come together, our dreams will come true one day.
If 'Ini Kalilah' didn't work , then I guess we have to wait 5 more years. I'm sure the 'ubah' spirit will not be diminished that easily.
update: I'm watching ubah.tv now where there is a press conference at the DAP headquarters regarding the inconsistencies in the electoral process.They want to hold the Election Comission responsible for the failure to ensure free and fair elections in Malaysia.
