Now that Najib become PM and come out with another sweet talking `1 Malaysia’ General Assembly -is it another hint for a General Elelctions? An analyst think so:

After Bagan Pinang win has UMNO become embolden enough to call for a Perak wide state elections to confirm its take over of the state government? Actually there was a detectable flow back of Malay support to UMNO at the Bkt Gantang by-election too. May be this is what it takes for UMNO to allow the people to have a say on who should lead the Perak state government-when they are controlling the state govt and when they see the `wind’ blowing their way. The mark of true politicians-not those who respect the people’s will as the highest reference as in a true democracy!

SPR made an interpretation that the non-contesting parties are not allowed to put up campaign material during campaign period, despite admitting that there is nothing in the law which explicitly disallow that. In such a situation a Constitutional Court such as operating in Indonesia would bring clarity to the situation promptly. The SPR is supposedly an independent body -however its interpretation of the law may be faulty-thus the need for a higher independent body to decide if the SPR has overstepped its boundaries.
