‘Lucu tetapi sedih’, itulah gambaran yang diberi Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi mengenai impak keputusan Pilihan Raya Umum (PRU) Ke-11 terhadap politik tanah air, khususnya Barisan Nasional (BN).
“Kadangkala saya rasa sedih, kadangkala saya rasa lebih lucu daripada sedih. Parti yang kalah tidak dapat tubuh kerajaan, berlagak macam dia menang, kita yang menang berlagak seolah-olah macam kalah.
“Kadangkala kita lupa kita menang dalam pilihan raya. Itu yang melucukan dan itu yang lebih sedih,” katanya ketika merasmikan Persidangan Perwakilan Gerakan Nasional di Menara PGRM, Cheras, di sini, semalam.
- LX believed Harian Metro was trying to mentioned about PRU-12 and not PRU-11.
- LX can't helped but kept laughing and rolling on the ground.
- LX think Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi must be a bit too old to judge.
- LX think laugh because result PRU-12 was so bad compare to PRU-11, then we consider that a significant lost by the ruling party.
in PRU-11, 2004, BN win by landslide victory, a 90.41% majority of MPs in Parliament (198 out of 219), with only 1 state (Kelantan) with PAS.
in PRU-12 2008, Barisan Nasional (BN) win by only 63.06 % majority of MPs in Parliament (140 out of 222) with 5 + 1 states fell to the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) coliation. Kelantan, Kedah, Penang, Perak, Selangor + Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, all now governed by PR where BN are merely reduced to the opposition roles in these 5 + 1 states.
Yes, a win is still a win. No doubt. No question about that. But isn't that the big difference between 90.41 % and 63.06%, a sign that BN is losing the plot, a sign that BN is losing the support from the people? If Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, don't know how to count, don't know about statistics, he can get scholar from our local uni which I think good enough to teach him a thing or two.
Or better still, he can asked his former political master, Tun Dr Mahathir to explain to him.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi also have to remember that the popular votes from peninsular Malaysia for PRU-12 was under 50%. Is that a VICTORY to BN? Goodness... It's Mathematics !!!!!!
