"Chinese Tsunami" in GE13?

It was a disappointment to read remark from Tun Dr Mahathir. To blame the outcome of the GE13 as a result of Chinese Tsunami is already too much....but to quote it in his manner is even worse.

"But Kit Siang (DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang) came and brought his 'Malaysian Malaysia' concept aimed at creating Chinese hatred towards the Malays; that they (the Malays) purportedly gained everything after independence," he told a press conference at the Perdana Leadership Foundation building, here, today.

Mahathir said the sentiments spread throughout the country until the Chinese community rejected the "hand of friendship" of the Malay community, resulting in the "Chinese tsunami" in the GE13.

Before the election result, Tun Dr Mahathir was confident that Lim Kit Siang will be buried in Johore Bahru, but now that the outcome has been announced, the media (Utusan), our current Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and Tun Dr Mahathir blame it simply on this: "Chinese tsunami" aided by group of power-crazy Malays.

I think a simple mathematical calculation could help to tell our leaders how wrong they really are. 

13.3 million voters for GE13...29.68% are Chinese, which means 3.94 million are Chinese voters. By assuming 80% of the Chinese voters turn up and 90% of them voted for PR, it would be:

0.8 X 3.94 X 0.9 = 2.83 millions voters. Let us not forget that this is only an assumption. For those of you who are living in Malaysia, 90% of Chinese voting for PR is quite improbable. The numbers should be smaller but we are trying to give as large number as possible.
Pakatan Rakyat has obtained 5.62 million votes....which means that even though 90% of the Chinese voted for PR, it will only be about 50% of what PR has obtained...at a more realistic 80% of Chinese voted for PR, it will be about 2.5 million votes, which means there are more than 50% of votes coming from the non-Chinese Malaysian.

The clear indication is this: if not for Sabah and Sarawak as well as Johore and also the gerrymandering (which gives rural seats much more say in determining which party to win the election), BN would have lost the GE13. No doubt about that, it was the Chinese who make the loudest noise and protest in this election, but it is not a Chinese tsunami....It is more of urban-rural division....

Hopefully, people will see more sense in this. The 29.68% of Chinese out of the GE13 voters alone cannot bring in the change.
