As there likely won't be by-elections for a while I have been going ahead with some more writing about historical Malaysian by-elections and other things of electoral interest. So might as well make a thread and avoid clogging up the main one, which after all is about discussion of the present.

Expect updates to be few and far between.

Where better to start than by commemorating a trailblazer in Malaysian electoral history?



“It occurred to her at that time that if she had the rights to which the vote entitled her, she should regard it as an obligation to help other women who regarded politics as unthinkingly as she had once done.”

Nice one.

BTW, since you mentioned Bangsar, any chance we will get a write up about another famous ethnic Indian who was elected there, and later became the President of another country?

Maybe!

I'm on a Sabah bender right now but that could certainly be under consideration at some point.

Are you doing the (half) British guy who was Chief Minister of Sabah and whose death was supposedly an assassination attempt?

May have to wait for a post of its own, but yes. I have Labuan on the queue (for very unrelated reasons of news and electoral interestingness) and any discussion of it and Harris Salleh would probably need a 6/6 post for context, so whenever I find election results connected to it I'll see what I can do.

I asked this to two different Singaporeans and they replied "what influence?" Make of that what you will.

One would expect it, if any, to show up most in the immediately adjacent constituencies but for various historical reasons there hasn't been such an electoral effect. You have slightly lower turnout from part of the electorate working in Singapore but it's not politically significant for the same reasons. I think jaichind and I played around with this in the other thread when we were discussing Pulai.
