You think everything gonna be all right now?

I actually am not that keen on commenting on the poilitical situation in my country as I never have real believe in politics although a lawyer actually enforced or interpret whatever law which comes out of the place call Parliament or Senate or whatever place in your country where laws are made. However, the people who worded or wrote the law are not these so call lawmakers. Only a handful of them really read it or are lawyers or care enough to have lawyers advising them on the law that are being debated every day at these places where laws are made. I know some have the interest of the people in their heart but some have it with a mix of their own interest as well and last but not least, some have only their interest in their heart though it may seems to be for the people.

Why I am commenting on this matter is currently, here, in my country, Malaysia, which I love, there is a change of leadership in the biggest and oldest political party, which affect the composition of the government of the day. Why they are such a big deal, legend has it, okay, it is a fact, this party is the political party which had led Malaysia on its quest for independence. Somehow, they lost their way and people start to be hated by everyone except those who gets benefits from those in power. They lost terribly last election and managed to lose a few states where the only governments people ever know were them.

Some say they are oing to lose it all if this party election did not usher in new faces or those who can help them save themselves. They again showed their ignorant of what people wanted when in some of the speeches by delegates they questioned the people's rights in questioning how they behave and how they conducted the affair in their party. I was actually amused at first of the people's interest in them as this political party is still an association however you look at them. As long as they are not planning to do crime or up to no good, they are allow to conduct themselves according to their constitution. The problem is, they then become leaders as their party is the ruling party. That is why people demand they act like leaders. Not like some fraternity where the one who can look the best or is best in sports or are rich are elected.

That is where we are now. Being led by a fraternity which have no idea people want the best for them. They questioned our interest in them. Why the leaders of old impose certain restrictions on how election within the party goes. How they run their party. How there is a check and balance by a disciplinary board, which some say is bias. I am too out of it and too disillusioned by their antics that I actually never believe in them in the first place. Even though a few of them are my friends, I never join them as a member. Just as an observer. I hope they now have real leaders there. And someone who know what to do. There are going to be by-elections in a few places within the next 2 weeks. That will be the test. In legal world, you only know the strength of a law when it is tested in court. These by-elections are their courts. Then we see how they fare...



You think I should run for office? Nah...

I think organizations such as political parties sometimes need to be told these things. Sometimes they have power so long that they forget what got them there.

I think they know Ratty who put them there but they just don't have the time to think about it. Bigger fish to fry...
