“He might be disappointed if he saw what happened. But I’m sure he will understand that this had to happen for our next generation.
If BN continued ruling the country, the consequences might have been worse, but I don’t see hope under them. They have ruled for 60 years. When somebody is holding a thing for too long, they will think that it is completely theirs and they own it.
Tun Mahathir inspired me the most during this election. He built something great for the country back then. I have good faith in Mahathir.
This time we (the people) show them what we want. We decide what we want.
I consider the polling day the luckiest day for Malaysia. Even though I voted, I wasn’t sure who was going to win. I just tried my best. I seriously never thought that this would happen, and I’m sure other Malaysians felt the same.
But I see hope and I see a future where Malaysia will change for the better. This is what the young generation needs.
I hope the younger generation can be brave and step up to do what they should do. Parents are not going to accompany us until the end. If we want a better environment for our next generation, we must decide for ourselves based on what we think is right”.
