i think it’s not too late for me to comment on the recent by election. It’s Just a short note. Pas has retained the permatang pasir seat. Even though the majority decrease but they are still the winner. This is expected since the majority previously was about five thousands something. Actually the victory of pas was also contributed with the issue of BN candidate’s disbarment from the legal practice. If this issue not arises, I expect that most probably the majority will be lesser. We could see PAS played this issue every day since the election campaign started. This has affected Rohaizat’s reputation and credibility which implicitly causes the voters to lose their hopes and confidence towards him. What makes me curious is why BN choose that kind of person as candidates. Is he the best choice that BN can put as candidate? we must remember whenever by election is held many people will concern and keep focusing to that constituency to follow on what is happening from day to day until the election day. Every eyes focus to that area and indirectly the election’s result has a big influence towards the voters as a whole. That’s why every political party cannot take it for granted. Since the last GE, Pakatan Rakyat has won 8 times and lost once. BN has been given so many opportunities to restore the public confidence. Seems that they are not really serious in convincing people that they are still relevant. If BN keep losing continuously in other by election next time, don’t get shocked when suddenly a day after next GE, they are no longer in power.
