VOXPOP 'Muhyiddin is Mahathir's favourite choice to be next PM, paving the way for his son, Mukhriz, to be DPM.'
PAS: Muhyiddin just can't wait to be PM
1Voice: There should be no doubt about what PAS vice-president Mahfuz Omar has said - that DPM Muhyiddin Yassin is anxious by the way he goes about doing things.
The first time was claiming to be Malay first, rather than Malaysian first. This was a slap on the PM's face figuratively, but the PM instead of being stately, opted to defend him.
So the DPM has shown his true colours. He thinks he would get Umno delegates' support to be the new president of the party when the next AGM for the party is held.
Najib has to watch his step or he will be dethroned soon. Muhyiddin is testing the waters and will strike at an opportune time.
ONG: By the time of the 14th GE, Muhyiddin will be past 70 years old. He is aware that this may likely be his last chance to become PM.
Timothy: Muhyiddin is Mahathir's favourite choice to be next PM, paving the way for his son, Mukhriz, to be the DPM.
If BN fails again to secure a two-thirds majority, Malaysians will suffer much more under these 3Ms (Muhyiddin, Mukhriz and Mahathir).
Jbsuara: Although Muhyiddin has been harbouring this ambition for some time, he is not fit to become prime minister.
He was noted to be racist, greedy and carry on the 'business as usual' approach of governance, which has beleaguered this country for so long.
Sa Tombs: If Muhyiddin becomes PM, he and his cohorts can do a bigger number than what he did to Stamford Holdings. This time, he will have the whole country divided and cut up for his cronies.
Mukhriz better watch out (or is he part of the plan?). He will use you to carve out Kedah. This fellow is unfit to be a member of parliament, let alone a cabinet minister.
Tekee: No, Muhyiddin, this country will go up side down. You are not fit to be PM. You, however, can be the Perkasa head.
Pakatan pledges RM600 a year for housewives
Blind Freddo: What is wrong with the opposition's so-called coalition. First there was a combined agenda, which they promised to update (but never did), then there was the PAS agenda (unstated, but hinted), then the Kedah agenda and now the women's agenda.
Is PKR so devoid of consensus and planning skills that they can't come up with one agenda to which everyone adheres and which every voter understands?
We are entering another Umnoistic era of mindlessness where every last minute 'bright' idea becomes the 'flavour of the month', where there is no cohesion, no direction and everything that Anwar/Najib/Mahathir says, regardless how irrational, becomes instant policy.
The women's wing has the brain power of a pigeon's wing. Have they given any thought to the administrative costs, the effectiveness of such a paltry amount, the potential to abuse the system. It is a total waste of money.
Govindankanan V Kanan: Cut the crap, Pakatan. You should be planning how to cut the civil service from 1.2 million to 800,000 in five to 10 years. Attract FDI (foreign direct investment) to the maximum. Recall some of the best retired top cops from the region to solve our crime rate. Raise the standard of our education system.
Tightening our belt to reduce the nation's deficit. Cut corruption to the minimum. Dismantle the cronies and distribute the contracts with open tender system and seeing that it is distributed widely and fairly.
This is the way to go, Pakatan. Anyway, my vote goes to you.
P Dev Anand Pillai: Make it easier for women to get jobs and make the working environment friendly to those who have small kids.
Creches can be the way forward instead of these dumb schemes. Teach them how to fish instead of giving them fish like what Umno-BN has been doing for the past five decades and more.
Bender: Of course, it's better for the government to open up more job opportunities, but I still think this offering is a great start by the Pakatan government.
Please remember that being a housewife is an honourable position in itself, (though not every, or even many, women would agree with me on this). Let's consider those who opt to stay at home and take care of the family full time.
This scheme is just a small compensation for their sacrifices for the family. Of course, by getting the spouse to contribute will, albeit indirectly, strengthen the family unit.
Also, this is one way the Pakatan government can teach the outdated BN government how to rule the country properly. and how not to forget even the most inconspicuous segment of the society in their policy.
I just hope BN won't copy this scheme like they did with the taxi permit, hudud and water schemes offered by the Pakatan government and unashamedly claim them as their ideas.
