The real winner of the general election

JENG-HU n. the one who decides when to hold election and set the election ground rules

Let me give you some ballpark figures. Malaysia have close to 30 million population. Approximately 10 million of these are registered to vote. Assuming 10 million are below the voting age, where are the other 10 million? All overseas? Cannot be.

From the 10 million who have registered to vote, the government expects about a 2/3rd turn-out. So about 6.6 million will eventually vote. Now from the 6.6 million, let's assume the majority will vote for the ruling party... let's be generous, say another 2/3rd of that, so 4.4 million will vote for them, the Barisan Nasional coalition.

So if my maths are correct, only 14.6% of Malaysia want the current government to rule. Chilling?

Even it my maths are wrong, I think I already know who the real winner is....

Parti Apathy.
