In a few hours, Sarawakians will go to the polling stations to vote in the 10th Sarawak state election.
Excitement is in the air as many expect a stunning election outcome this time. But today I am unable to access Free Malaysia Today website. Up till yesterday, I was able to do so. Has the site been attacked?
I won't be surprised if the site has been under attack. The stakes are high, and some people, especially the long-term Chief Minister Taib Mahmud and even Najib's future as the Prime Minister of Malaysia may well hinge on the election results.
Sarawak has long been considered the ruling Barisan's fixed deposit. The Mother Of All State Elections Is On
But this time around, the anger against Taib Mahmud for his alleged rape of Sarawak in his 30 years tenure as the Chief Minister and the still unresolved Malay language bibles issue may just see the ruling Barisan lose.
Reports have it the turnouts for opposition Pakatan's ceramahs or rallies far out-number those of Barisan's. But will the numbers translate into votes?
The opposition are confident that this time around the tide may turn in their favour. What they are unsure of is what tricks Barisan may resort to to ensure that they remain in power.
Whatever it is, Sarawakians now have the power in their hands to do something for themselves and to determine the direction they want their state and future to go.
