Study shows, Malaysia’s ruling party to win elections

The ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition is expected to win the 13th general election of Malaysia which will be held this year, according to a study.

Titled “Study on Feedback of Undergraduate Voters”, the study covered 3,000 respondents from Universiti Malaya (UM), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM).

The respondents involved undergraduates aged 21 and above from the Malay, Chinese and Indian communities, some of whom would be voting for the first time.

The outcome of the study, carried out from December 9 to 12 last year, also showed that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak is a popular leader, has good performance and qualified to be the prime minister.

The chairman of Yayasan Hal Ehwal Siswa, Mohd Radzi Abdul Latif said 57 per cent of the respondents, representing UKM (75 per cent), UPM (67.4 per cent) and UM (41.4 per cent), said the prime minister's leadership was good and popular.

“They feel that Najib is the best candidate for prime minister.

“The study also found that respondents who are on the fence will be the decisive factor for both sides,” he was quoted by news agency Bernama as saying when announcing the result of the study here yesterday.

Recently, Selangor Chief Minister Khalid Ibrahim claimed that a study carried out by Universiti Malaya Centre for Democracy and Elections found that 60 per cent of the people in the state would vote opposition alliance Pakatan back to power.

However, this finding was disputed by the state Barisan.

Selangor Barisan coordinator Mohd Zin Mohamed said Khalid's statement was just a syiok sendiri (self-indulgence) statement and that the study did not represent the real sentiments of the rakyat in Selangor.

“It is only part of their political and psychological ploy to make them appear stronger as they know that the perception towards Barisan in the state has improved due to the prime minister's transformation plans,” Mohd Zin said.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
