malaysiakini on SNAP POLLS for PERAK

YES! Let the people decide.
That is my opinion as we cannot allow just 2 or 3 elected representatives and the BN-infected Elections Commission to dictate the future or destiny of the Perak state government.
According to this malaysiakini article Pakatan mulls snap polls in Perak.
As an anak Perak it is disappointing to note the games some politicians play; with so many rumours of millions of ringgit being offered.
It is a betrayal of the lowest order when an elected representative switches camps and that works for both sides - it does not matter even the person has a divine revelation.
Of course if no public office is being held the person should be allowed to leave but when one holds a position that has been bestowed by the public based on a prior public declaration like a party ticket, it is wrong to change sides.
I hope the voters in Perak will send this message loud and clear in the snap polls.
If we want politicians to become more honest and develop some integrity that is something we must be prepared to do.
