Latest stats from the Election Commission (SPR), 5 Jan 2016
The Melayus may form the largest number of Malaysians who have not registered to vote, as lamented by my friend Zaini Hassan, the controversial Cuit Sikit author, and he's right: the Malays are hopeless when it comes to their right (and those entrusted to register the Malays as voters are hopeless, too).
But the real bad news, ladies and gentlemen, is that the Chinese are just as bad as the Malays when it comes to this right/duty. And the Indians and the Orang Asli are just as hopeless as the Sabah/Sarawak Bumis when it comes to this duty as citizens. We, Malaysians, regardless of race or religion, are an irresponsible, disinterested lot when it comes to charting our own future. We let others do it for us and blame them when we feel that they have made a poor choice!
No that I think we've made a poor choice during the last elections!
Perhaps it's time we make voting compulsory for all Malaysian citizens above 21 years of age.
