How should we judge a government?

"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

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

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan
Was he referring to Malaysia? Seems so apt...

GE 13: Overview

Link

Pakatan Rakyat:
The 3 component parties are contesting a total of 222 seats: PKR 99; PAS 72; DAP 51. It is interesting to note that PAS leads in having 64 seats contesting against Umno; PKR 55; and DAP only 1! The only one happens to be Gelang Patah, where Lim Kit Siang faces Abdul Ghani Othman.
PAS alone cannot introduce Hudud laws. DAP has limited influence, contesting  less than 25% of total seats.

Barisan Nasional:
Umno is contesting a total of 120 seats: 105 in West Malaysia; and 15 in Sabah. Theoretically, Umno on its own could form the government if it could win at least 112 seats.
Non-Malay component parties of BN are contesting a total of 60 seats in West Malaysia, making a total of 165 seats.
In Sabah, Non-Malay component parties are contesting 11 seats, and together with Umno's 15, make a total of 26 seats.
In Sarawak, PBB is contesting 14 while others are contesting 17, making a total of 31 seats.
