GE13 - My first time vote experience

Leave a Comment

Before GE13,  the battle of 2 main parties was so intense online and offline. The war even spread into my family.

Based on the way both parties promote their manifesto, dad and I agreed that the former ruling parties had higher chance of wining.   Social media can only influence those have internet access. Rural area folks still rely on traditional media.

However, my mum strongly disagree. She been argued with us on the issues. She wanted us to be more optimistic on PR. The fight did not continue. Just on and off, mum kept remind us the latest ways of voting.
