All day long mahjong OK on Election Day

Constitutional lawyer Syahredzan Johan states Spoiling votes is part and parcel of democratic process.

Syahredzan Johan 

He also informs that while in Australia voting is mandatory and a punishment sanctioned, there is no such law in Malaysia, that is, requiring Malaysians to vote even if they are registered voters.

Thus he is saying it's okay to:

(a) spoil your votes by, say, drawing a moustache on, say wakakaka, Tian Chua's face (assuming he is allowed to stand after his court appeal against a RM3000 fine for swearing obscenities at a policeman), or a pair of horns on Maddy's head, wakakaka again, or scribble "f*** y**" on Tantawi's photo on the ballot sheet, and

I prefer sideburns, wakakaka 

(b) play mahjong at home all day long on Election Day, wakakaka.



Because it's part of your right as a Malaysian within our nation's democratic process. Mind, that is not to say it's encouraged. Your vote is very powerful which has been why some people have been trying to bodek, bribe, scare, threaten or shame you with the equivalent of a compulsory voting 'fatwa'.

But Syahredzan Johan's advice is a refreshing change from the standard intimidation or shame tactics of some politicians.


Just as a side information, in Australia the federal fine for not voting is Oz$20 the first time, and Oz$50 if you repeat missing your election obligation. Fines for not voting in state elections differ and vary from state to state. New South Wales imposes a Oz$55 fine.

I personally know of Australians who happily paid the fines because they wouldn't vote (not couldn't) as they were disgusted with all the election candidates, wakakaka. No, they did NOT play mahjong all day long but were in their neighbourhood pubs or at a barbeque, wakakaka.



  1. That is Syaitan only serves to make the world safer for Malaysian Official 1.


    Vote Dr Mahathir if you want change, says law professor

    “If you want to vote for the government then of course it is your right, but if you want change then you have no choice, no matter what you (or I) might think of Dr Mahathir,” Azmi said

    After 1MDB, a change in government is a must, says Ambiga

    “Boycotting your vote in a country where elections are free and fair, can send a message. People will know you are important,

    “But in a country where elections are not free and fair, you are giving the other side a walkover, you are giving those in power a walkover,” she said.

    Enough said!!!

    & don't complain for the results.

    No vote, no say!!!!
