Malaysian Politics

I'm looking at the recent changes in Malaysia where the ruling party has lost it's 2/3 majority for the first time with great interest. It is a scenario Singapore's ruling party and even opposition parties have feared for Singapore: The opposition being thrust into a position of ruling.

We'll see over time, whether the DAP at Penang will reinforce the fear-tactics the PAP has inflicted on Singapore by failing the state big time ... or it will show Singaporeans that the fear is unfounded. For now, Lim Eng Guan's policies for Penang sound reasonable and looks good. So things are hopeful.
