However, a sincere analysis and thought is hard to come by these days, especially from foreigners... I mean real foreigners.
Read this comment by someone in Hong Kong, published in The Star Online:
Are there any other such comments you get from overseas of late, except the ones supporting PR and believing there will be change of regime in Malaysia?"A Hong Kong university professor has predicted that Pakatan Rakyat will not form the government in the next general election - even with increased support from Malay and Chinese voters. City University's Asian and International Studies Department acting head Prof William Case said he believed that the increase in support from Chinese and urban Malay voters would not translate into Pakatan taking over Putrajaya. Even if Pakatan were to win over all Chinese votes, the demographic of about 26% is hardly enough to determine any election in Malaysia - except in Penang. True, more urban middle-class Malays will support Pakatan given their resentment over recent corruption cases. But while Pakatan may increase its vote share - even to that above what it won in 2008 - this will not be enough for it to win a majority of parliamentary seats,” he said in an e-mail interview here yesterday."
Some of those who made such a prediction had never been to Malaysia either!
