Elections Scenario from P124 Bandar Tun Razak, KL.
Greetings to all Malaysians wherever you may be .
First and foremost, my heartiest congratulations to those of you who have gone and cast your precious votes!
Now, we should just wait for the results to be announced tonight and see whether the voters amongst the Malaysian public have learned to exercise their rights properly or will still rubber stamp those who have been having it their way all the past 51 years since this nation came into being?
Okay, I have taken some videoclips and pictures of the scenario here at P124, Parliament Bandar Tun Razak, where there was some pretty interesting scenes of the opposing parties trying to influence voters into supporting their candidates!
This is a video I took showing the way things were this morning in front of the Sekolah Menengah Sains Selangor, opposite the Taman Tasik Permaisuri and close to the Kuala Lumpur Soccer Stadium in Bandar Tun Razak, 56000, Kuala Lumpur.
My personal observations is that both parties are unfortunate to have non intellectual persons creating a scene at the entrance to the polling stations. Are they there to intimidate voters or to canvass for votes? They surely do not seem that friendly to voters by their menacing attitudes!
For instance, the BN UMNO members came across as intimidating persons all looking like they are ready to rumble on one part, trading barbs, lambasting the PKR vote canvassers and had a sort of a dismissive attitude when approaching members of the Malaysian public?
Listen to one of them asking me to vote for Barisan Nasional and saying that only the BN are capable of running this country!
I ribbed him saying that his words sounded like Pak Lah's? The man didn't get that!
He was asking who the hell is Khalid Ibrahim and ended his riposte with saying 'Buang masa saja..ini kerja bodoh!' meaning ' It's a waste of time only ..this is stupid!'
You figure such an attitude is going to earn the BN any brownie points?
No way jose!
Well, we can't argue with such blinkered minds, can we?
Imagine if I was going to vote for Tan Chai Ho only to be met by such menacing figures from the BN Gerak Gempur types?
I would surely be pissed off and put my cross besides Khalid Ibrahim's name! :D
Now let's go over to see the type of folks that PKR had trying to woo the voters with their last minute canvassing?
Frankly speaking, I would be pissed off as well for as you can see in the video, the fella carrying Khalid's poster couldn't even give a simple reason why Khalid Ibrahim should be supported?
Talk about the 'clueless in KL'! He sure is a strong contender, don't you agree?
If you are calling for 'change' as what their catch phrase slogan was; then surely you need to back up your call with solid reasons as to why there has to be change?
These fellas did not know nuts about their candidate and can't even answer a simple question?
How the hell are these persons selected to face the voting public in the first place?
Looks like they did not screen the PR levels of these people in the first place! Tch..tch..tch..tch!
So, in my opinion, both opposing camps lost out at that polling station for failing to have well learned, pleasant, decent and nice vote canvassers at work there?
I voted for change and did it out of my own convictions! These persons from both camps were a bore and did not have the people approaching skills to speak of in the first place!
Just look at the way these people acted and spoke to the very people who are taking their precious time and making the effort to go cast their votes and they have to go through these gauntlet of nuisance creators!
Both the Barisan Nasional and Barisan Rakyat have to learn to teach their vote canvassers good manners and Public Relations skills.
If I had to make my choice based on the way these folks acted this morning, hell..I wouldn't even have bothered to go cast my vote in the first place?
But who gives a shit about these people?
I have my civic duty towards carrying out my responsibility towards deciding the fate of this nation and I have done my part!
To Khalid Ibrahim, good luck! Let's see what the people of P124 have decided?
