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

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright - until you hear them speak.

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

Government fed by the people

Now no one is an MP nor incumbent MP, same goes to ADUN


But don't expect that to change the lifestyles of our BN leaders even for a temporary period, after having been through years of being accustomed to such continuity.

According to Uppercaise:

'Now no one is a member of Parliament
And no one is a so-called ‘incumbent’ MP

”Incumbent” is a word used mainly in the United States — they have a different political system. Congress is not dissolved during an election. A member of Congress will conduct his election campaign while still a sitting member of Congress. As a sitting member, he is the “incumbent”, i.e. the person still holding the position. That does not apply in Parliamentary systems. When Parliament is dissolved, there is no Parliament. No parliament, no members. Therefore no such thing as an “incumbent” member of Parliament.

PM stays in office by courtesy and convention...

A caretaker govt can only handle routine matters...

A caretaker govt cannot use govt facilities for party campaigns...

State assemblies

• The same applies when a state assembly is dissolved. Tiada Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN), tiada ADUN.

Will all politicians really respect the rule of law?

As Dr Wong Chin Huat commented in Facebook : 'Profound understanding of the political system especially the nuances between presidentialism and parliamentarianism, so rarely found amongst Malaysian commentators.'
