The vote also found that a total of 903 voters on Twitter chose the answer, while on Instagram, a total of 229 voters also expressed the same decision.

In addition, as many as 45 per cent of respondents chose candidates as their primary criteria in this election, followed by the party factor, which is 27 per cent.

The criterion aspect saw 1,022 voters participated in the vote to determine what Malaysians would choose when they vote later.

The issue criterion received a vote of 13.2 per cent, while the lowest option selected by respondents was the manifesto.

In addition to this survey, last September, five multilingual media, namely Sinar Harian, Astro Awani, The Star, Sin Chew Daily and Malaysia Nanban, also collaborated to conduct a mega survey to find out the people’s voice.

The mega survey, which ended on Oct 9 last year received cooperation from three research firms which were Ilham Centre, Huayan Policy Institute Center and O2 Research Malaysia (O2).
