I have been meeting various people for the past 2 months – politicians, non-politicians, people in power, and those very ordinary ones who just want to go on with their iives. The “scary” comments are from students and those between the ages of 19 to 27.
The general impression I got is this – they do not trust the politicians all round. What this means is that they do not seem to have the confidence in ANY of the political parties that is currently available. The conversation sometimes turned to “who is less bad than the other”. IN other words, lesser evil of the evil ones present.
This is clearly a national credibility crisis among political leadership in our country.
Probably this ex[lains why new poltical parties are being formed. This may also explain the birth of MCLM.
If truly this is the general perception of the voters (and the young voters are going to count), then it is highly possible that we may have a hung parliament for the first time in Malaysian history.
Are we prepared for this?
