News from Permatang Pauh

Updated: 18th August 2008 - I don't mean to sound so optimistic. Even though there was a clear bulk of support for the opposition in Permatang Pauh, but my views is that there is a slight chance for UMNO to win the election. They have to work hard to garner support from the non-Malay communities. I wish them all the best and may the right person win.

Updated: 16th August 2008 - I think I saw Khairy Jamaluddin on his way to Permatang Pauh for the election campaign. I must say that was the stupidest decision ever for UMNO to let a huge liability like him in the loop as he is hated by the Chinese community anywhere especially in Penang. Should UMNO let him show his face around Permatang Pauh, UMNO would lose the Chinese votes that they looks like they depended much upon to win the Permatang Pauh election.

13th August 2008 - My brother from Penang just spoke to me about the current situation in Permatang Pauh. Apparently there are real grievances among the Malay community towards the current state government especially on Malay issues. Some figures had really taken advantages for self serving interest by being in power just for 4 months. From the way he spoke, the Malays seem likely are not going to vote for Anwar Ibrahim and they [Malays] too begin to miss Dr. Koh Tsu Koon.

But would that feeling be back up by the Chinese and the Indian voters? What about those that are going to abstain themselves from voting due to their lost of confidence to BN and the current PM? It’s very interesting to see the election in terms of percentage that will go out to vote that day.

But the truth that I know, if Khairy are thinking about going to campaign at Permatang Pauh… well please don’t! UMNO would very much lose the election if the peoples of Penang saw KJ around especially the Chinese community. The vital key lies at the hand of the Chinese voters.

The key to victory lies in the hand of the non Malay voters? Good guess you made there, I could not disagree with you.

Pakatan Rakyat already made their move based on that assumption unfortunately. The UiTM 10% quota, equal opportunity for all races, the abolishment of NEP - these are all issues that Anwar Ibrahim had effectively tapped on to gain support from the non-Malays.

Guess what, he even wisely expecting that the Utusan and TV3 will foolishly turn this issue to make UMNO looks like Malay defender aka Malay Fasicst by staunchly opposed these issues. This then will stirs fears among the non Malays and galvanized their support for Pakatan Rakyat

Hahaha, it is funny to think that BN with billions tax payers fund at hand fails to analyze this tactic. Anwar spent only his time and pocket money to engineered this move. Call this man whatever you like. But he is a total genius

Lets us all make racism history, and the Permatang Pauh will see the dawn that bring light of equality among men
