It is time to face the facts

The Permatang Pauh by-election has ended with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim garnered a higher majority compared to his wife in the last general election. It is indeed a sign for the ruling coalition to face the fact that the people are not happy with the country progress. Many are asking for changes to be made to the nation's economy and not forgetting matters like judicial credibility, government transparency and equal and fair treatment among the races. After the March 8 general election, the government has yet to come up with concrete steps to help the people. Instead, the petrol price has been increased shortly after the election even though the party promised that they would not do so during their election campaign.

So it is no wonder that the people are not happy with the leaders of this country. This led to the incident where the Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Najib were thrown with water bottles during the Permatang Pauh by-election. It was reported that as he was leaving one of the campaign stations, the Opposition party supporters jeered at him and threw water bottles. He was not hit and managed to escorted to another place. The Federal Reserve Units had to step in to prevent further scuffles between the supporters of the two parties.

I'm sure that if Datuk Najib was hit, the police would arrest the people to find the perpetrator. Maybe then Datuk Najib need to seek advice from Fort Worth Personal Injury Attorney. No matter how we may dislike our leaders, we should never resort to physical attack against him/her. To our leaders, the people have spoken. It is time to face the facts.
