Let me be Blunt

“Let me be blunt.
Assuming all the BN supporters came out to vote, and they managed a popular vote of 50% and the total voter turnout during the Johore State election was 50%, that simply means only 25% of valid voters in Johore supported BN.
So what happened to the other 75% of voters, more specifically the 50% who stayed at home oblivious to the importance, when the remaining 25% voted otherwise?
The reasons are many. But here are the few which contributed significantly to the low voter turnout.
1. The spike in recent covid cases sometime after the announcement of the Johor election acts as a deterrent. Many wouldn’t want to risk their health.
2. Closure of voting stations earlier than normal.
3. Low postal votes across the causeway. Only about 10% or rather 7k out of 60k voted. How come? Who handles it?
4. 3-5 corner fights which greatly reduces the oppositions chance.
5. Our rakyat is fed up. Why? a) Mishandling of funds. Corruption is rampant amongst politicians. b) Our politicians same old same old empty pledges. c) Way too much of politicking. Politicising every single issue including crisis and disaster management. d) Our politicians uncanny habit to party hop. Crudely disregarding citizens constitutional rights to the point of forming their own backdoor government once elected without the citizens mandate. e) The acquittal of those found guilty due to corruption by our court of law. g) The constant abuse of race, religion and royalty in controversial matters to gag the rakyat even during the swearing in and forming of the backdoor government.”
