Post-Elections Analysis Open Dialoge

Malaysia 12th General Election 2008 is a remarkable election and may signal a new dawn or worst problems for Malaysia, depending on how the politicians and citizens react to the new and hard to predict situation in Malaysia after the BN (Barisan Nasional) was trounced. They had only slightly above 50% of the votes, but I suspect strongly minus the postal votes, they would have obtained less than 50%.

It is therefore important to review and educate all regarding important issues and hold the Barisan Nasion as well as the Barasan Harapan Rakyat accountable for their words, manifestos and promises. Now for the Barasan Harapan Rakyat, doing that will be much more difficult as unfortunately they are not the country's government, hopefully a government-in-waiting, so when you watch over them, you must bear in mind the limitations they will have to face.

I know this is late notice, but if you happen to catch this in time, I hope you will take the trouble to attend this "Post-Elections Analysis Open Dialogue" organized by "The Centre for Public Policy Studies", an independent and non-partisan public policy institute that aims at fostering open-minded dialogue, enlightened leadership and better governance.
