Vote BN or Vote DAP (Undi BN atau undi DAP)?

UMNO is United Malays National Organization, the big brother in the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition in rotting Malaysia which according to DAP's (Democratic Action Party) Member of Parliament and Opposition Leader practice hegemony, a step further from dominance of the Barisan. Dominance means UMNO plays major role but other component parties are given due respects. Hegemony means UMNO tells component parties to jump, and component parties jump.

From a Malaysian who wants to remain anonymous

"Undi BN, barang naik. Undi DAP (Rocket) naik bulan" (vote for BN, prices increases. Vote for DAP (Rocket), gets to the moon."

My interpretation: Getting to the moon mean technical progress by practicing meritocracy. BN responsible for rising prices because of many unfair and one sided contracts including the tolled road contracts and the IPP (Independent Power Producer) contracts where they are guaranteed huge profits at the expenses of the general public.
