Joke From Kuala Terrengganu For You!


At 89, Maimun Yusuf was Malaysia's oldest candidate in the March 8 General Election. I heard that she is considering to stand for the by election that will be held in near time after the death of Kuala Terengganu Member of Parliament Razali Ismail.

Maimun contested in the strong constituency which is witnessing a three cornered race. She has spent around RM30 000 of her savings on the deposit and posters. The 89-year old independent candidate in Kuala Terengganu stood against bigwigs Dato Razali Ismail of UMNO and Mohamad Sabu of PAS.

She secured enough votes to deny Mat Sabu the victory in the area;helped BN to win the constituency for the second consecutive times. And she may caused BN lost. We don't know actualy where the votes came from. Barisan Nasional’s Datuk Razali Ismail who polled 32,562 votes won the seat with a 628-vote majority, beating Maimun and Mat Sabu who garnered 31,934 votes. In order not to lose a deposit, a candidate must obtain 1/8 of the total votes cast. So its clear that Maimun lost her deposit too.

685 votes out of more than 60 000 votes was not an achievement. The votes that she obtained only from the sympathy of the local residents, not because she fit to represent them in the parliament. I don't think she will win the one of the biggest constituency in the nation with sympathy votes. Do you think? Even if she win in the Kuala Terengganu, she not able to stand firm against the BN and opposition MPs in parliament to deliver her opinions and speeches. Hahahaha... Even young MPs are having troubles to deal with the issues around, and she is going to settle it?

I think in her old age, she should stay at home and take care of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren rather than stressing herself and the contesting candidates too. Nothing much she can contribute to Kuala Terengganu constituency specifically and the people of Malaysia generally. I hope she is not out once again to make everybody laugh!

Salam Perpaduan,

C'mon grandma not for the second time.Better spend the money for your life's survival. Don't think the fund she raised during 12th GE come from her own saving account. There's a source said that a company in Singapore sponsored her and don't know for what reason.
