Only In Malaysia. God saves Malaysia.

Rumour has it that immigrants that had undergone 6P Programme initiated by the Malaysian Government are now given the right to vote in General Election.

Yes, right to vote, just like all of us.

Quoted from here :-

Today, Prime Minister's office has allegedly received a confirmation from some of our citizens those working in several sectors in Malaysia since last year that they were given more than citizenships from Malaysian Government. In fact they now have been given a right to be a voter in upcoming Malaysian's general election.

Another highly placed source from prime minister's office has confirmed that Bangladeshi workers may easily conferred Malaysian citizenship with the condition to vote for party that represents the government in power. "

If it's really happening here in Malaysia, it just clearly shows the desperateness of the current Malaysian government, running by Barisan Nasional, in order to win the election again.
Think about it, the number of immigrants here in Malaysia is running wild, and being a permanent resident of Malaysia is just an easy task. Sooner or later, the whole country would just be flooded by all the immigrants coming from different countries.

Immigrants are definitely important for the development of the nation, but permanent residency should be given to selected people only- to professionals, not a typical labour that works at a construction site.

Given the right to vote? Then what is the difference between us and a typical Bangladeshi labour? That just doesn't make sense to me, and honestly, that is just a reckless decision. Yes, the 6P programme itself started off with a good intention- to minimise the number of illegal immigrant here in Malaysia, but what makes them deserve the right to vote? Do they know anything about the politics in Malaysia? Do they care about Malaysia? For God's sake, they came here just to make a living, and that's it!

Perhaps it's time for us to reconsider to which party our votes should go. Sadly, most of the teenagers here in Malaysia, don't really participate in politics. Politics just doesn't seem interesting to them, and they just take what is given to them. A change for the better, a change for good.

At least, these are my points of view. Do correct me if I'm wrong. :)
