Forum: What are the actual contributions from your wakil?

“It’s really interesting that the MCA man is always available and approachable and helpful and yet will lose out to the DAP in the GE.” — Orangkampung

What will the MCA men do post GE13?

Datuk Seri Chua Soi Lek – who is blessed with poster boy looks – might choose to pursue a career in modelling.


Senator Gan Ping Sieu is the Deputy Minister of Youth and Sport:

“Gan PS seems pretty comfy on the park bench which is so obviously nowhere in Malaysia.

Maybe after the GE, he can spend more time on the bench feeding birds, reading a book & declaring himself “wow”=`ed & “terribly impressed” by passing joggers of the fairer sex.” — comment by FFC, originally @ 2013/03/06 at 2:41 pm

What are the actual contributions from your wakil be it DUN or Parliament?

By Orangkampung

I have Umno for DUN and DAP for Parliament, and when I need help I run to MCA. It’s really interesting that the MCA man is always available and approachable and helpful and yet will lose out to the DAP in the GE.

The Umno rep has a lot of circles surrounding her and you would have a hard time to get to the inner sanctum. And since this seems to be a predominantly Malay DUN, I’m sure she’ll win again. But quite a few people I speak to seems to find her approachable so I could be the exception. If I were to score my wakils [Umno adun and DAP MP], they’ll both get two thumbs down.

My hometown has not seen any changes over the 5 years even the roads have not been upgraded, no new economic activity, in fact no new activity at all. Sigh….

  1. Back in Kuching, my MP & ADUN were both from BN-PBB. Surprisingly, despite being a deputy federal minister, the MP is quite approachable. He may not be around to turun padang all the time but his service center is par excellence. He has about 5-6 staff members who will take note of your complains & details. When the matter is resolved they’ll call to check. And more importantly, they don’t pass the buck to the relevant agencies. Very happy with the MP. The ADUN however is a letdown as he’s the total opposite. But don’t see him being replaced as he’s one of them warlords of the party.

    Since GE12, I’ve moved my voting center to KL. Just an MP, no ADUN. My MP is from PKR. SHE is never around but is always reported in the news as everywhere but in her constituency. Since Dec/Jan she has been quite visible in the area though for ceramahs etc. I tried on two separate occasions to request for some assistance to resolve some neighborhood issues. I was told that they didn’t have the moolah as the federal government don’t give them any.

    At UMNO’s service center in the area, I was quite impressed with their service. Took a while to get back but eventually they resolved both issues satisfactorily. And I get a card & SMS for my birthday too.

    IMO, one good thing that came out of GE13 is that BN IS no longer taking things for granted. It shows in the way they service the constituents even in their strongholds. As for PR’s service, in my area at least, the less said the better.

  2. i live in Selangor. Under PKR & PAS.

    Never voted before (not bothered, actually!) but recently registered for GE13 to ubah. I am proud to say that for the past 5 years, Denggi increased tremendously in my area, a demo was held over something insignificant but the same people kept eyes closed over mesin kuda shops, on a good night and days, we have lingering scent of eau de sampahs,

    first time in many years we have a slight flood problems (no, there’s no construction of LRT lines in case someone wanna say it’s because of that), highly moral & religious people doing hankypanky with bazaar Ramadan placement to fill up an invisible milo tin, selected tarring of certain individuals’ lane/compound but for non-heaven visa holders have to fork out their own money,

    municipal council issuing summons selectively, among others – i think that should sums up my feelings over my wakil.

    1. From Bukit Besi, Terengganu,

      My ADUN is great. My MP lagilah. Terengganu is already under BN, so you know lah how easy Terengganu people get all financial and facility aids every year.

      Back to where I live and work now, Sijangkang, under PAS, every week has 2-3 times ceramah, tapi lalang panjang sampai tiang traffic light dah report, but like always, baling to some other agency, itu cannot, ini cannot, take a long while etc bla bla bla, selalu jugak bekalan air terputus, jln berlubang ambik masa setahun nak tampal balik, azab betul sport rim tayar bengkok. Staf kat pejabat adun boleh ckp, “even Selangor under PKR, selagi Putrajaya ‘kita’ tak pegang, susah dik oi…” Alasan. Nak upah orang potong lalang pun kena tunggu Federal bagi green light ke?

  3. my actual wakil is non existent as well .. funny thing is the BN fella pulak gatecrashed some of the weddings held here. Duduk kat kerusi jemputan biasa, eat whatever being served. Whether sincere or not, no one cares but seeing his face quite often, people developed a certain affinity towards him. Strange kan orang Melayu ni?

    1. My Umno Adun likes the limelight, kalau acara glamer dan jika jemputan yang datang tu taraf Pak menteri, then my adun pasti ada. Oh, and she likes to invite umi hafilda…..hmmmmm

  4. Well, back in Bukit Besi, if our ADUN tak attend weddings, funerals, majlis potong jambul, bersunat or whatever, siap la kena maki berbakul2 by the villagers, tapi ckp belakang la. so tak ada istilah dijemput or not. The ADUN kena tau la beramah mesra dgn penduduk kg. kalau tak datang mesti hantar wakil jugak, either relatives or PA.

    it’s better selalu nampak muka depan2 daripada tgk dalam Ytube je. but seriously, orang Melayu ni memang mudah pun kalau nak ambik hati diorang. asal janji ditepati. hahaha
