Hulu Selangor: Wondering who to vote for?

Are you one of the 64,500 Hulu Selangor votes? Are you wondering who to vote for in the upcoming by-elections? Here are a few questions you can answer, which would be a very effective way to help you decide.

1. Do you think it’s great that over RM27 mil was apparently spent on women’s footware for civil servants under the Umno/BN regime?

2. Do you think it’s great that the UMNO/BN regime has not yet found anyone responsible for the death of individuals such as Kugan and Teoh Beng Hock?

3. Do you think it’s appropriate that UMNO/BN exploits the judiciary system for targeting and politically hounding its opponents?

4. Do you think it is good for our country that UMNO/BN carried out the coup d’etat in Perak?

5. Do you think that it is acceptable that UMNO/BN politicians repeatedly exploit racial issues to intimidate voters and instill fear in us?

6. Do you think it is good for our future to have an UMNO/BN regime that is mired in corruption and embroiled in repeated scandals such as missing jet engines, the PKFZ fiasco, and abuse of public funds through the allocation of non-competitive tenders?

7. Do you think that the on-going practice of denying and delaying citizenship for spouses of Malaysians, while granting citizenship to illegal immigrants in Sabah is good immigration policy?

8. Do you agree that the MIC leadership should not be held accountable for the abuse and squandering of people’s saving and investments?

9. Do you think the MIC has been a good and credible representative of poor and marginalized people?

10 Do you believe the UMNO/BN should continue to squander the nation’s wealth?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above simple questions, you should vote for the BN candidate. On the other hand, if you answered ‘no’ to even one of the questions, then you should not continue allow a stale, bankrupt, and visionless regime continue to destroy this country’s future. You should send a very clear message that you care about what happens to our future - and that future cannot be built on rewarding the party and coalition that has, time and time again, abused the public’s trust.

So you see, it’s not too complicated, is it?
