The Malaysian election - the flags game


Visitors landing in Malaysia will straight away know that there is an election coming on. Of course the various party flags are a giveaway.

Funnily, though, in my state of Perak the red rocket symboled white flags of the opposition party, DAP are conspicuously missing. Everywhere you turn your head there the ruling coalition’s (Barisan Nasional) bright blue flags, with the symbol of weigh balance in the center. It is followed by the green white circled flags of the opposition party, PAS. To a lesser extent there are the Party Keadilan’s sky blue flags with white split circles in the center being seen accompanying the other parties’ flags.

DAP seems to have some sort of strategy in not putting out the flags early in tandem with the other parties. Maybe it is going to shock and awe (thank you Mr. Bush, sir!) the awaiting Malaysian voters!

In this election, if the winner was determined today by the design, distribution and display of flags, then the ruling Barisan Nasional party will win hands down. The opposition parties will lose and the DAP party will be caught with its pants down and will also lose its deposit. Ha ha! Just a wanton contemplation!
