Economy or Democracy: Hope for change now better for malaysia

My worry over this tendency of voters particularly Malaysians to put more emphasis on money (economy) over stuff more important like democracy, corruption, transparency etc. now seem slightly reduced. Respondents in the Merdeka Center's poll regarding the Najib's Barisan Nasional's shameless power grab in Perak, apparently slightly more respondents chose democracy over democracy over economy: "60 percent of the respondents felt their right to democratically elect their own representatives was of primary importance as opposed to 28 percent who felt the state's ability to generate economic growth was more important."

Let's pray that Malaysians would get wiser over their choices as more people begins to realize which is more important and of more lasting benefits.
