Chinese voters more rational now

The Chinese electorate is now more rational in evaluating the promises made by opposition parties, including DAP, compared to the previous two general elections, said  Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong.

The deputy MCA president said the community was aware that opposition parties were only good at making promises.

“Four years have passed since the 2013 general election. The people are getting more disappointed due to the Opposition’s failures to fulfil their previous election pledges,” he told reporters after opening the eighth meeting of the Malaysian Chinese Education Consultative Council here yesterday.

Wee was responding to a recent statement by Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi that the Chinese community should not continue to fall prey to DAP’s promises as they were never fulfilled.

Ahmad Zahid also said that in the past two elections, DAP had pledged to improve the people’s lot but nothing came out of it.

Wee said the people could judge for themselves that the Opposition practised double standards and was not consistent in making decisions.

For example, he said, the Opposition had criticised the Barisan Nasional government whenever there was an increase in water tariffs.

“However, when the Penang government also increased water tariffs in the state, DAP made an excuse that the increase was meant to educate Penangites to conserve water,” he said.

The Government, admitted Wee, was not perfect and had weaknesses.

However, unlike the Opposition, he said the coalition never made promises which could not be fulfilled.

“Surveys also indicated that support from the Chinese community has started to return to Barisan,” he added, reported The Star.-3/8/2017
