One thought on “Malaysia

  1. Well, the election fever is beginning to warm up especially on the TV ads at the premier hours (at a certain time) alerting viewers on election and vote. Continuous political analyses and discussions are on Astro Awani now and then particularly on the hot seats and states such as Perak, Kedah, and Selangor. The overall views acknowledge that BN will face a very tough time this GE2013, Perak and Kedah will be likely to fall to Pakatan based on the previous GE2008 where total vote differences in many areas are just a small fracture. BN has put a lot of efforts to ensure it will win back Selangor, but voters in the urban areas are likely to support Pakatan Rakyat.

    Well, just wait and see.
