Rohaizat (left) vs Salleh (right)
---Mask of the Day---
PAS (Pakatan Rakyat)
Nomination for Permatang Pasir by-election has been set on 17 August 2009 while the polling date will be on 25 August. This is the eighth by-election after the general election on 8th March 2008. The first by election is called for Permatang Pauh Parliamentary seat after its MP Datuk Seri Wan Azizah binti Wan Ismail resigned from the post. This is followed by Kuala Terengganu Parliamentary seat (passed away), Bukit Selambau Seat seat in Kedah (resigned), Bukit Gantang Parliamentary seat (passed away), Batang Ai State seat in Sarawak (passed away), Penanti State seat in Penang (resigned), Manek Urai State seat in Kelantan (passed away). Including Permatang Pasir by election, there are 5 by elections being called due to the death of its representatives. Another 3 by elections are caused by the resignations of its holders. The question is; why are there so many by-elections? Even after deducted the forced by-elections, we still called for 5 other constitutional by-elections. 5 by-elections in less than 18 months is a very big number.
This time, it will be a better between Rohaizat Othman (BN) and Salleh Man (PAS). For me, this seat is quite obvious that PAS is going to win it. The only question will be; what is the majority this time???
Muhyiddin with BN candidate
Hadi Awang and Lim Guan Eng with PAS candidate
Ahmad Kamrul Ramizu Idris - the failed to contest candidate
