HARAPAN ; Too Little , Too Late

TWO weeks ago, the Malaysian media would have you believe that READ : Pakatan Harapan will win in Kuala Kubu Bahru, with a 4,000 majority.

I however, had opined differently, on the basis of a lack of leadership, a lack of political strategy a double speak in communications, and the non Chinese people's dislike for Nga Kor Meng, makes Perikatan Nasional the favourites to win this by election.

SINCE then, the mass media too seems to have a change of heart, with Malaysiakini stating READ : PN in the driver's seat to give PH a bloody nose at Kuala Kubu Bahru while Free Malaysia Today is reporting VIEW : Nga KO Meng is going to cost the DAP the Kuala Kubu Bharu seat.

I would just like to point out , one bit which Malaysiakini missed out, which is actually the root cause of the Tamil people of the Hindu faith had actually started to move away from Pakatan Harapan.

SOME may call it childish, but the real reason which kick started all the other factors of the Indian dissatisfaction has its roots in VIEW :Anwar Ibrahim missing the Deepavali celebrations for the OIC meeting to discuss the Hamas/Israeli issue.

I might be wrong on the following facts, but as far as I can recall, never in the history of Malaysia, has the Prime Minister not been in the country during Hari Raya, Chinese New Year, Christmas or Deepavali celebrations.

I doubt many would recall, but back in February 2023, I  had written READ : HARAPAN will lose big in the Selangor state elections, if it did not approve a new EPF withdrawal scheme.

THE  Unity Government, stuck with its guns on not allowing any EPF withdrawal scheme and ended up nearly losing its underwear in Selangor to Perikatan National.

THIS time, however there is a no questions asked EPF withdrawal scheme , called the account three, but I believe that the current scheme has come in at the wrong time and on strategy wise it's going to place the Unity Government in a very defensive place.

PEOPLE are bound to ask this simple, if the economy is doing so well like how Rafizi Ramli and Fahmi Fadzil claim they are, then why is there a need now for a new EPF scheme? 

IT doesn't make sense, and communication wise, the perception build up closer to polling day will be the Government of the day is not being honest with us.
