Heroes and Zeroes

What can we say? We have been away for a while now, plotting our election campaign since we got wind of the 11th Parliament's dissolution from YB Maya Minah Black a while ago.

The Siber Party of Malaysia (M) will fully participate in the 12th General Elections without any pacts with other parties be it the Barisan Nasional or those who want one-on-one contests. Politics is for the people and the more the merrier, we say!

Therefore, the rest of us in the party are joining YB Maya Minah Black - hmmm, she isn't a YB anymore now that the Dewan Rakyat is dissolved but what the hell... - to contest in the coming vote.

How to vote for us? Simple. Every time a voter crosses a box, that is a vote for us. After all, our symbol is the X but we cannot display it now as it is against Malaysian election rules. But it will be done after nomination day this Sunday.

Minah Black is set to stand in her old constituency of P. 000 - Tempat Maya. The rest of us will contest in the following constituencies: Mydeen Aboo Backer (P. 786 - Mamak Maju), Dek Mat (P. 666 - Kencing Setan), Tatak Sombong (P. 888 - Sungai Wang) and Mat Merah (P. 404 - File Not Found).

As you can see, we foresee a lack of contests for the seats that we have chosen to make our stand.

But of course, zeroes can be heroes and over the course of the next few days, the Siber Party of Malaysia (M) will unveil its manifesto and economic plans to make Malaysia a virtual paradise.

The rest can just fight among each other and produce videos for all we care.

Hi Hafiz,

We in SiPM dont believe bloggers should be voted in just because they are bloggers. We think they should stand as any other candidates and let us know why they should be representatives of the people.

We would like to hear their solutions to the ills that ail us, and how they'll go about fixing this. We'd like them to convince us why they should be voted in. Having a blog and your own pulpit does not an MP make.

For the list you've put up, we wish them well, but we've yet to hear how they'll help the country other than rhetoric on their blogs and other blogs.
