The Sabah election brings to the fore the good, the bad and the ugly. It is a stage where actors of various emotional and materialistic dispositions strut around to regale the audience (electorate) with tales that portray the illusion of reality, writes Mohamed Ghouse Nasuruddin.
A series of events unfolding in the country has placed Malaysia in a state of turmoil with so many conundrums in the management of its affairs.
The Merdeka spirit has been relegated to soulless physical expressions mainly due to the partisan chauvinistic agenda of political parties that sow antagonistic sentiments among the people.
USM academician Mohamed Ghouse Nasaruddin says politicians spend most of their time politicking to get political mileage and to shore up their position of power without much consideration for the welfare of the people as they are consumed with their own agenda.
