Pre-Election Campaigning already in full swing, the competing parties are not shy to frighten the voters. The threats of Christianisation or Islamisation of Malaysia may neutralise each other. PM Najib urging the opposition to accept their defeat even before the elections might backfire on election day if the loser should turn out to be the Barisan Nasional coalition…
Anyway, the large opposition rallies in the past months seem to suggest that it is more and more difficult to frighten the Malaysian voters.
And the ‘Arab Spring’ or ‘Tahrir’ comparison look a bit too far- fetched… fortunately.
