GOPENG, Mar 25: The parliament is expected to be dissolved by the first week of next month for a late April general election. Political analysts and commentators are detecting encouraging signs of shifting attitudes of the Chinese voters towards the government.
The Chinese community is observing the change and progress that Barisan Nasional is doing for the Chinese and would consider this as a turning point. They might have seen that it is important to have a government that can ensure stability in the country.
MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lekurged the Chinese community to decide if their political strength is in the ruling-government or opposition in this upcoming 13th General Election (GE13).
He said Barisan Nasional was set to form the Government and DAP and its PAS and PKR allies were in no position to change this fact.
"I can say with confidence that the Malay and Indian votes are very good for Barisan," Dr Chua said after visiting Lawan Kuda wet market here yesterday.
He advised the Chinese, whose priorities had always been on the economy and education, to seriously consider where to place their political trust.
