J-Kom head questions 'Anwar 100 days' survey method

A recent survey that painted an unflattering picture of the government has been criticised by Community Communications Department (J-kom) director Mohammad Agus Yusoff.

Agus (above), a former academic, said the survey respondents did not reflect the voter base because 81 percent of the 35,077 respondents were males.

He also claimed that the ethnic breakdown, age, locality, and income levels were inaccurate, but did not provide specifics.

"This survey is unlike the methodology used by Merdeka Center which uses random stratified sampling to ensure proper representation.

"In my opinion, a reliable survey needs to be cautious in its methodology," he said in a statement today.

The survey in question was conducted by O2 Research Malaysia Sdn Bhd and commissioned by five news organisations - Sinar Harian, Awani, The Star, Sin Chew Daily and Malaysia Nanban.

The survey was conducted to mark 100 days of the Anwar Ibrahim administration, which falls on March 4.

Among others, the survey suggested that 71 percent of Malays have no confidence in the federal government fulfilling its "GE15 manifesto".

Yesterday, Universiti Utara Malaysia's (UUM) Malaysian Institute of Political Analysis (Mapan) head, Mashitah Mohd Udin, said the online survey method used would likely result in skewed results because it captured respondents who are audiences of the given media houses. - Mkini
