BN retained the Batang Ai state seat since 2006 state election while PAS and PKR retained Bukit Gantang and Bukit Selambau state seat respectively since 2008 election.
Nizar PAS won with increased majority of 2789 against Ismail BN in Bukit Gantang yesterday. BN’s hopes to increase its support by fielding a local candidate did not materialise. Duh? This by-election is a referendum on BN's move in capturing Perak state from PR by getting Jelapang assemblyman Hee Yit Foong, Behrang assemblyman Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi and Changkat Jering assemblyman Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu to leave PR to give their support to BN as independents. And very obvious the Perak people dissatisfied ^^, so what if Mahathir joined the field? It won't change the fact people hate Najis.
PKR’s Manikumar won the Bukit Selambau seat with a majority of 2,403 votes on Tuesday. The by-election was held following the resignation of incumbent assemblyman V. Arumugam on Feb 8 saw the loss of Ganesan from MIC and other 13 independent candidates.
Meanwhile, Malcolm from BN secured the seat in Batang Ai with majority 1854 votes against PKR Jawah. Jawah failed to overcome Malcolm, thus failing to win the seat. I don't understand why, of why people in Sarawak still support BN for they have given them enough chances for 50 years. Left 5 years right 5 years and they still give support to BN? Anyway Jawah played a good fight... People in Sarawak, buka lah mata besar besar!!!
UMNO deputy Muhyiddin denied BN has lost support and gave excuses that Najis new leadership has just started carrying out tasks thus people are still undecided. Isn't this time, when the time Najis rises to power, is the brightest moment Najis should have confidence with? Just like Abdullah rose to power and everyone saw hope in him, gave Abdullah a big win in 2004 election. But Najis lost the major 2 by-elections right after he took over premiership, shows the lost confidence of people on Najis? Najis, u sao pei la...
Though politics is fun and drama-like, but I hate politics. I don't mean PR is convincingly good and pure in helping us. But from what I see since I learn politics, BN has been so suck up I cannot let my vote to go for BN. Left 5 years right 5 years, do you think we will give you any more chance? You don't deserve it. I will at least struggle and die by voting PR rather than quietly wait for BN to change and rot to death. I try and fail but not fail to try...
