By-election or Buy Erection ?

Almost 90% of 12,272 registered voters of Ijok exercise their democratic rights in the April 28th 2007 by-election. The by-election was necessitated by the state seat that fell vacant due to the death of Barisan Nasional assemblyman Datuk K Sivalingam. The Ijok be-election was won by the Barisan Nasional's K parthiban with a majority of 1,850 votes against the Parti Keadilan Rakyat's Tan Khalid Ibrahim. The 9 days of campaigning was marred by several reported incident of violences and intimidations. The well oiled Barisan Nasional's government machineries also launched millions of ringgits worth of infrastructure project to entice the voters. A dump site which was complained by residents for the past nine years was also suddenly closed. Let's us hope that the dump site will not be reopened after the by-election. Millions Ringgits in infrastructure projects are promised to entice only 12,272 registered voters ? While the two political parties fought it out in the by-election campaigns, the Ijok's voters enjoyed erections from all the promised goodies from the government !

It looks like the only way ( or so it seemed ) to enjoy development goodies, benefits, and privileges from now on is to pray for more by-elections. Let's all joined in prayers............

Dear Yang Berhormats, while we are waiting to see which constituency is lucky enough to bless with another by-election, in the mean time, would it be possible for all of you, the noble politicians, to consider abolishing the toll charges, reduce the petrol prices, and distribute the RM 80 billions annual profits of Petronas to all Malaysians ? And maybe also bring down the electricity tariffs, the telephone tariff, etc. Just my humble wish list.

Sincerely, I am praying very hard to have a by-election in my contituency. Hehehehe......

Hohoho...most of the BN Yang Berhormat's are worth more to their constituencies dead than alive. You never see them around when they are alive, but if they die....$$$ Millions of projects magically appear.
