Malaysia's General Elections: Indians may be deciding factor
Kuala Lumpur: Indians will be the deciding factor in some 50 parliamentary constituencies in the upcoming General Elections in Malaysia.
MIC secretary general Datuk S Murugessan said that when they look at where the votes are evenly divided, a 10 percent or 5 percent vote will become crucial.
In an interview with SwitchUp.tv's GE13: The Showdown programme, he said this is what was happening right now.
According to the Star, Murugessan emphasised that Indian votes were crucial although they formed only eight percent of the total population.
To a question, Murugessan said Indian votes were returning to the Barisan Nasional party due to the pull and push factor, but acknowledged that it was not like the 2004 scenario.
