Dr M: 75pc favour English

(NST) KUALA LUMPUR: An online poll on former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's blog showed 75 per cent of votes favouring the teaching of Maths and Science in English. In his latest entry on www.chedet.com, Dr Mahathir posed the question to readers, 8,044 of whom disagreed with the government's decision to revert the teaching of both subjects to Bahasa Malaysia.

As of 9pm yesterday, only 2,719 votes came from those who agreed with the decision.

In his entry, Dr Mahathir said the he felt the government was not listening to the voice of the people.

"Perhaps a blog poll might enlighten the government as to the opinions of the people. I will then try to let the Government know your opinion," he said.
