Did PAS win the two state governments of Kelantan and Terengganu in the 14GE because of immature young voters?

The question whether PAS won the two state government of Kelantan and Terengganu in the 14th General Election because of the immature young voters in the two states is the immediate response to the startling assertion by the PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang that the Barisan Nasional (BN) lost the 14th General Election on May 9 partly due to the “political immaturity” of young voters.

Hadi does not seem to agree that the corruption and misbehaviour of BN leaders were major causes of the BN defeat, which reinforces the perception on PAS’ role to aid and abet former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak in his monstrous 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal until the people rejected Najib in the ballot box.

It is highly regrettable that Hadi continued to be one of the foremost practitioners of the toxic politics of lies, fear, hate, race and religion, to incite fears over the alleged 66 parliamentary seats held by non-Muslims and 58 by Muslims in the government coalition and that the Muslim MPs are being bullied and dominated by the non-Muslim MPs.

It is clear that as PAS President, Hadi regrets UMNO and Barisan Nasional lost in Putrajaya, as he is not interested in integrity and good governance issues and has no objections to Malaysia becoming a global kleptocracy as a result of former Prime Minister’s 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal.

It is therefore most fortunate that Hadi failed to play any “kingmaker” role in the 14th GE with the PAS failure to win 40 parliamentary seats, with the intent to prop up Najib to continue as Prime Ministe of Malaysia and keep UMNO and Barisan Nasional in Putrajaya.

From Hadi’s statement, it would appear that PAS under his leadership is opposed to the proposal to lower the voting age from 21 years to 18 years. Let PAS leaders speak up.

    Hadi Awang is a dissatisfied probably bitter self righteous, over entitled old man and hence no surprise he would spread lies, hate and reckless in pursuit to satiate his over self righteousness.

    The worrying thing is, with Internet available everywhere in Malaysia for years now, there are still so many that are blind to the obvious self serving, pettiness, small mindedness to spread hate and lies even deny all credit to those they oppose despite PH, DAP action benefitting their supporters and constituent.

    Hadi’s PAS is sad, pathetic and wrong but their supporters are scary for their ignorance, blindness and willing victims

    Well, well..IF Hadi want to know what political maturity is, he can learn from Nazri proposing alliance with DAP. The proposal sounds ridiculous because it should be impossible but in reality it’s the height of political maturity because it throws away decades of political baggage and bring back UMNO to its original spirit under Tunku Abdul Rahman.

    The proposal is not realistic but we should comfort ourselves there are those who still remember what UMNO was suppose to be. The fact it cannot just meant UMNO is too far gone down the wrong path for too long.

    Hadi must have gotten a shock when he heard this!!!!
