(Ijok) Other facts and figures April 16, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, Democracy, Malaysia, Politics.
Some basic facts that haven’t surfaced thus far:-
1. There are more male voters in Ijok, contrary to the national trend which has more women voters.
2. More than 70% of the voters are between the ages of 36-60.
3. There are 24 postal voters, which BN won 19 of them, leaving 5 to PKR and none for the Independent.
4. PKR and BN won equal numbers of peti-undi’s (according to areas) i.e. 4 each.
Putting aside the density of each peti-undi’s, point 4 is rather exceptional, as in a BN seat, it is usually a clean sweep.
There were three candidates during the GE – BN, KeADILan (PKR) and an Independent. BN obtained approx 57% of total votes compared to PKR’s 40%.
The Independent was decimated (this is a lesson #1 for those who nak syiok-sendiri – voters don’t trust independents, because if one can’t even be bothered to be accountable to the vast membership of a political party, then one will treat the constituents with equal disdain).
