Democracy --- The people decide

Election day was over last Saturday..... and subsequently the reasons were made known to the people on Sunday. It was described by the media as a political tsunami, a tidal wave of epic proportions in favor of the opposition. Well, in the peninsular anyway.

It was my first time voting this year. Went to the polling centre in the late afternoon, very few ppl there. We all cast our vote calmly and went home after that. On Sunday,the results for my area was he rocket got 10 out of 11 seats they contested for, which was an unforeseen victory.

The power of the people's vote denied the ruling party the 2/3rd majority they had hoped for. Instead they lost 4 of the states that they ruled in the past 4 years.

Election outcomes aside, I'm proud to say that Malaysia had a very peaceful election compared to all other countries. This is a true show of racial unity and democracy. I hope all this would work to the people's favor..... as each party will have a chance to show their worth.
