I would like to make this suggestion to the Election Commission and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Call off the by-election for Penanti state seat in Penang. Appoint a special Cabinet committee instead, to look after the constituent and the well-being of the rakyat.
Its better than forking out so much money to finance a by-election. We have had one too many already since the last general election.
At this time of the economy, the money should be professionally-managed and be spent only for the welfare of the rakyat, NOT to fulfill the greed and meet the demand of unethical politicians.
The election provisions can be ammended, no doubt about it. After all, whoever wins of lose will not be of any significant. Should the Opposition wins, there might be another resignation. We cannot allow this to become a political trend.
By-election should be called should there be death or resignation over court cases.
Its time to consider this option. The Cabinet committee for unrepresented constituency will augur well in keeping the politics to order without sacrificing the rakyat. They can always wait until the next general election.
