How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

A lot of writers have recently made many forecasts but (in my humble opinion), most of these articles are political spins to make their paymasters look good.

As a disclaimer, I have no agenda in providing the following assessment.

My questions are for the reader to come to a conclusion on whether PR can improve their standing since the last polls."

 "... In the last elections, BN won 140 seats and PR 82 seats in the Parliament.

BN won narrowly with 86 seats and PR 80 seats in West Malaysia.

However, in East Malaysia, PR only won two seats with one each in Sabah and Sarawak."

"Since then, PAS has wrested the Kuala Trengganu seat from Umno in a by-election. Six MPs from PKR and one MP from PAS have resigned. One joined Kita and six became BN friendly independents. DAP has wrested an additional seat from SUPP in the Sibu by-election.
