On Elections – Do you want to see Najib/Khairy as the new PM in 2012 with 91% majority?

In 2004, Abdullah led BN to a great landslide with 91% of parliamentary seats – unprecedented for the ruling coalition since independence – with only 64% of votes.

Why? It’s not because of his popularity. BN under Mahathir in 1995 was more popular, but he only scored 84% of seats.

What was Abdullah’s secret?

The constituency re-delineation exercise in 2004. A combination of mal-apportionment (apportioning constituencies with unequal size of electorate) and gerrymandering (drawing constituency boundary to benefit particular parties) result in this grave seat-vote disproportionality in 2004:

1 vote for BN = 3 votes for DAP = 8 votes for PAS = 26 votes for Keadilan.

Two years from now, in 2010, EC can redelineate the constituency again. If you do not deny BN two-third at your state assembly, they will have their way.

What does that mean? In 2012/3, you may see Najib or Khairy win 91% as the new Prime Minister?

Think about the image of “Mat Rempit PM” before you vote.
