The Pakatan state governments in Penang and Selangor have proved that if given a chance people of good intent can rule reasonably well, at least they will not do major harm to the system that is already corrupt to the core. Even Kedah and Kelantan may be less robust in their development but we don't have any major misappropriation of the states' wealth and the people's money.
The question in every voter's mind should be whether Umno-led BN government of 55 years and wide experience be able to get the nation out of the massive corruption, racism and abuse of power. If they are genuinely convinced that only Umno-BN can get them out of all these socioeconomic predicaments then they are free to go ahead and vote for them. Those who are unconvinced, it is time they look for an alternative and at present they only available have Pakatan,despite all its shortcomings and inexperience.
Whatever it may be, the people must bear in mind that the opportunity for change that they have today may not come by for another few decades if they let this chance elude them now. The time has come for Malaysians to make the all-important decision and we hope they will do with great maturity, wisdom and discern.
