The Barisan Nasional government will continue to assist Chinese and Tamil schools for as long as there is the sun and the moon, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said.

The Deputy Prime Minister said it was not true that the coalition was giving allocations to vernacular schools only when there was a general election or a by-election.

He said allocations announced ahead of the Sungai Limau by-election on Nov 4 were approved earlier and were not just “goodies” to entice Chinese voters, who number more than 1,800 here.

The General Election Commission (KPU) is optimistic that it can beat the two-week deadline given by the Election Supervisory Body (Bawaslu) to fix the glitches in voter list data for the 2014 polls.

On Wednesday, the KPU postponed publication of the final voter’s list following protests from Bawaslu and political parties who said that the list was flawed and could leave millions of eligible voters disenfranchised.

Bawaslu had earlier said that more than 11 million voters could lose their right to vote if the glitches were not fixed.

Jakarta Governor Joko Widodo and former general Prabowo Subianto aren’t considered real contenders in the upcoming election, despite their high chances of being elected as president based on their popularity, a survey showed.

Megawati Sukarnoputri, who served as president from 2001 to 2004, is chairwoman of the PDI-P.
