LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS - Time's Up For Pakatan Rakyat!
About 3 months ago, the Pakatan Rakyat state government in Penang announced their commitment to fulfill their pledge in the last general election to hold local government elections. This was subsequently echoed by the Pakatan Rakyat administration in Selangor.
To date, even after the end of 2 by elections in Selangor and in Sarawak, there is no indication of whether the pledge by Pakatan Rakyat to hold local government elections would be fulfilled in ALL Pakatan Rakyat states.
Pakatan Rakyat should be reminded that their pledge in the last general election should be fulfilled by holding local government elections in ALL Pakatan Rakyat states.
If Pakatan Rakyat is sincere in fulfilling their pledge, it is time for Pakatan Rakyat to announce a definite timeframe to hold local government elections in ALL their Pakatan Rakyat states, being Kedah, Penang, Selangor and Kelantan.
Pakatan Rakyat should not give any more excuses or remain in silence to avoid the implementation of local government elections in ALL Pakatan Rakyat states.
