Don't kill Malaysia's parliamentary democracy – please vote on Nov 19

As much as it may seem inconsequential or even futile, your vote still counts – it doesn’t just help determine who gets elected, it also increases the legitimacy of elections and pushes politicians to be accountable. — Filepic/The Star

So, where do you stand on this election? Are you among the mass of disenchanted voters who have lost faith in our system, who view politicians as mostly self-serving, untrustworthy and rapacious? Are you one of the disinterested, who doesn’t know and doesn’t care?

If so, please read on. Of course, hardened party stalwarts are welcome to read on too, but first, I’m appealing to the disenchanted and disinterested. I’ll cut to the chase: Don’t squander your vote.
