“Who do you think will win?” – This is the MOST over-asked question in the last ten days, but I still asked two guys behind me, who came early to “jom” a space so we could witness the final countdown of the Permatang Pauh by-election campaign on PKR side.

They sounded excited and the reason why I turned to ask them the question was because they kept harping (behind me) that “kita mesti menang, kita mesti menang” (we must win).

“Anwar (Ibrahim) will win,” said one of the boys. “But UMNO will play dirty tricks. They are very quiet this time and that is dan-ge—-rous. They are quietly going into kampungs to buy votes”.

“Phantom voters are making their way here. This time they are smart. They are not coming by bus. The police has already warned and asked us not to act like the police”.

“Don’t you think they are planning something?” Er, yes…maybe…but maybe not, I thought.

But the other boy added: “It’s ok. We are used to it. We will keep watch and be careful. As for the money, these days, we take it and vote for who we like”. Then they both laughed.

In various ceramahs over the last few days, Pakatan leaders, including PAS, continue to tell the people to take the money offered to them by ‘the other side’ but when it came to casting their votes, they must know ‘what to do’.

*                    *                    *                     *                     *

PKR’s sms says that the final event at Jalan Baru will start at 9pm. When we arrived from Penang about 40 minutes later, a string of cars had already lined the road along the ceramah site.

By ‘We’, I mean: yours truly, Mustafa K Annuar and P Ramakrishnan from ALIRAN. The other ALIRAN member Anil Netto, who blogs live and from ground zero said he would be there, but went ‘missing’ later.

We suspect he was busy blogging somewhere under the rain🙂

The crowd started to fill the empty field minutes later, and soon there were a sea of faces. What was nice about those faces was the fact that they were multi-coloured. What a sight.

My companions were already counting the numbers. 10,000, 30,000, 60,000? The reporter next to me estimated the crowd at 3,000 (hmm…). No, she is not from the mainstream media.

Anil’s ‘source’ at the scene (I think I know who!) estimates the crowd between 50-60,000.

By the time Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng spoke (video inside), my face, hair and clothes, were wet with rain water.

I stood in the rain with the pak chiks, makchiks and children with their umbrellas, some people just wore caps, others pulled their coats and vests over their heads, and others like me, was ‘unprotected’.

Eventhough a pak chik chided me for blocking his view of Lim Guan Eng, as he was sitting on the wet ground listening intently to his ‘Chief Minister’, I forgave him.

I tried to take several pixs (not so fine, forgive me) and video-taped Guan Eng, who thrilled the crowd with his fiery, yet humorous speech.

The mostly Malay crowd simply loved Guan Eng, responding to his remarks with cheers or suggestions, always clapping when he said something ‘witty’.

When our neighborhood helicopter hovered over us, flooding the field with its beams, the crowd jeered passionately at it. I suspected the PKR de facto and prime minister in waiting was on his way here.

True enough, Anwar was coming from Seberang Jaya, where they had also been a large crowd.

The reporter next to me had received sms-es saying the crowd at BN UMNO Youth (minus Khairy Jamaluddin) was about 150, and the one with Najib Tun Razak, deputy prime minister and campaign director, known as ‘Mongolia’ to PKR supporters, was visited by about 400 only.

When my friends knew about the vast gap between the number of perceived supporters for both camps, their prediction of Anwar’s big victory tomorrow was justified.

One of them said it would be a moral victory for Malaysians as a whole, not just for Permatang Pauh voters as we are sending the next Prime Minister to Putrajaya.

It wasn’t so much the Anwar factor as prime minister. It was the fact that the people had the power to determine who to put in Parliament and who to kick out.

Anwar is nothing but for the policies he represent. Just as we find it hard to support Arif Shah, the BN candidate, no matter what a nice and kind man he is (can speak Chinese some more!).

Unfortunately, he endorses UMNo’s racist and corrupt policies.

And if tomorrow, Anwar promotes racial politics, corruption, cronyism and nepotism, WE SAY GOODBYE TO HIM as well!

“Well, if he (Anwar) does not perform, we will kick him out,” said my friend. I totally agree with such progressive thoughts.

Over dinner earlier, we laughed over the thought that after 50 years of BN leadership, we couldn’t do worse. We could even run out of mistakes to make.

“We could only repeat the mistakes,” said one of us.

*                    *                    *                     *                     *

But can Anwar maintain his wife’s Wan Azizah’s majority (13,338) in the March 8 elections? – On March 8, PKR won 64.16% of total valid votes, beating BN which took 35.84% by a margin of 28.31%  (People are Boss).

Almost everyone I met, save a few UMNO hardcore supporters, one of them a former colleague said Anwar will win, the question is ‘how much”.

This former co-worker is Ezam Mohd Nor’s supporter. I used to see him in reformasi gatherings, especially in Lunas in 2000. “Our eyes are open now. We now know what kind of person Anwar is,” he ttold me when I met him at one UMNO Youth gathering.

There could be many who think like him, and would be the reason for a slashed majority.

Less majority would give BN/UMNO a chance to go to town with their moral victory. A higher majority spells doom for BN/UMNO, at least, psychologically; and presents PAKATAN the opportunity to pursue the much needed ‘agenda for change’ and ‘bangsa Malaysia’.

Which is why, Paktan leaders on stage continued to remind voters to come out early to vote, and not to give anyone any reason to prevent them from voting.

There were many leaders from PKR, DAP and PAS last night – Lim Kit Siang, Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Husam Musa, Azmin Ali, Chong Eng, Chow Kon Yeow, Jeff Ooi, Nuru Izzah, Saifuddin Nasution and Jonson Chong, among others.

Anwar arrived at about 11pm, and was greeted as usual with loud cries of ‘reformasi’.

When he approached the stage, a man came over to garland him with flowers. The guy managed to give Anwar a peck on his cheek.

That drew laughter from the crowd, and a smile from Anwar as well. Someone, in the crowd said playfully “Oi…that’s dangerous!”.

Considering the two sodomy related allegations, Anwar has reasons to be cautious🙂

*                    *                    *                     *                     *

I do not want to repeat the contents of Anwar’s speech because most of them were repetitious.

But I did feel a sense of hope for Malayians when he ended his speech with shouts of ‘reformasi’ and ‘merdeka’.

As I was leaving the field when the ceramah ended, several men were happily saying “I think we can bury UMNO this time”.

They were oblivious to the massive traffic and ensuing rain. “It was ‘hujan keramat’ they said. “Holy or heavenly rain? Either way, everyone who left the ceramah left with a look of satisfaction on their faces.

The pak chik who was selling drinks outside the ceramah site said he had never experienced such a crowd, and the younger man selling fried mushrooms added he was elated because he had never supported UMNO before, and the results of this election may spell doom for the Malay party.

“I may not be highly educated, but I will never support UMNO. I live by working hard,” he said, while deep frying those delicious mushrooms admist waiting customers.

A customer who overheard our conversation, chipped in “We support PAS, and when a PAS candidate did not contest, we voted for DAP”.

How wise. How politically aware and matured. I stood a while longer at this hawker stall and chatted with the locals.

Before Anwar ended his speech, he crooned Elvis Presley’s “It’s now or never…hold me tight”, appealing to the voter’s conscience that a time like this may never repeat and that they may lose the chance to decide their future. 

The song brought home a very important message for all Malaysians. We don’t get many opportunities to decide who is our next leader.

Perhaps, the time has come. Truly, it’s now or never.  So, happy voting, Permatang Pauh!

    Yes, Permatang Pauh folks, vote wisely…..you decide it for us.

    Even Islamic greeting style of embracing each other and kissing each other is being dirtified by AMNO. Huh! Do I need to swear now? Ha ha ha! There are many Muslim socities where if you don’t hug the man or woman and exchange kisses, not passionate but sideway, it is considered an affront and utterly insensitive. It happened to me while in Turkey where kissing each other is a must and absolutely needed greeting etiquette. Anwar enjoys fanatical support due to the persecution he faces and many people will hug, kiss and touch him out of immense emotion. Hanief blogspot has some men and women crying in DSAI’s Ceremahs in Permantang Pauh.

    I was there. Unprotected front row, sitting beside with two Malay abang, who kind enough to share his box of cigarette with me, while i provided my “rain-proof” lighter… hehe…bad example of how different race berpakat.. 😛

    Nevertheless, we all hope for a better Malaysia tomorrow..starting from today. Please support DSAI for this re-election. If he is not good after that, vote him out. It is Now or Never….

    After Pakatan had won by 25k votes, the Sleeping Price was very angry and sermoned the OX from the animals farm (Rembau) He told him not just to drink coffee in 4th floor and go to instruct the coffee boy to swear again that he was forced on the sodomized drama.

    Pondan Ox asked: what for

    Sleeping Price said: I want to nail the Najis and Nakir. They are disturbing my area at Permantang Pauh.

    Ox said: okay let wait b’cos the IGP is repairing his pump.I know what to do.

    Folks: let see what will happened in the binatang farm before 15th September 2008!!!

  8. why no fuss says:

    Aiya slooney, why make so mush fuss over a racist, corrupt and lawless government who has been oppressing, exploiting and suppressing the rakyat by practicing the divide and rule system for 50 years plundering the wealth and resources of the rakyat with impunity across all boards vertically and laterally just to replace by another dynastic, nepotistic, and talibanic PR dogs who don’t practice what they preach but will milk the rakyat worse than the BN dogs, not declaring their assets, advocating the third tier of democracy and putting all those BNdogs/culprits behind bars but will continue to oppress, exploit and suppress the rakyat with impunity ala the BN dogs for another 50 long years, why no fuss then?

  9. kai says:

    For those who are lucky enough to be at PP today, please provide some exit poll results if you can.

  10. why no fuss says:

    Aiya, dear slooney, why make so much fuss over this ‘mother of all by-election’ when Mahakutty and Bodowi who have been plundering the wealth and resources of the Rakyat for as long as they like with all kinds of divide and rule racist and religious policies, self electing them as the PM with freehold tenure, ignoring the rights of the Rakyat to choose their own PM at the Rakyat’s own volition, selecting their cronies for privatizing golden-goose public utilities at the expense of the Rakyat, spending $$$$$$$$ billions and billions Petronas money which belongs to the Rakyat as if it belongs to their grandfathers, rescuing failed privatized projects with $$$$$$$$ billions and billions using the Rakyat’s blood and sweat hard-earned money, implementing all kinds of specious and lavish projects like Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, Twin Towers, KLIA, NEP1-9 etc. which only benefit the BNdogs, setting up of expensive and blood sucking tolls all across Bolehland, raising fuel and electric prices at their whims and fancies but when the PR dogs supersede the BN dogs taking over the governments, it will be business as usual practicing cronyism, nepotism and all the corrupt, nepotistic, dynastic systems remain intact, it’s akin to booting out the BN dogs just to replacing the BN dogs with another PR dogs further squandering the resources and wealth of the Rakyat perpetually without winking an eye using the same BN dog’s corrupt, dynastic and talibanic systems with all the PR subordinate dogs licking their master’s balls ala the BN dogs, why no fuss then?

    To all Malaysians voting in Permatang Pauh P44, I wish you all the best and when you ‘pangkah’ next to DSAI, you are making a small step on paper for us to make a giant step for a new gomen ,new policy ,new MALAYSIA!
    Make this 51st Anniversary of our motherland meaningful.

  15. Kenny Gan says:

    The winds of change are blowing strongly and they will blow Umno away. Civil society has coalesced towards a push for better governance. Malaysian society has matured to reject the racist policies of Umno. It is all coming together and Permatang Pauh is the focal point of the battle for the soul of the country.

    Despite the cheating and polling on a working day, Anwar must win by at least 15,000 votes for a moral victory over BN. Let’s all hope Anwar wins by at least 20,000 votes and bury Umno psychologically, hastening the process of change.

  16. cinta Malaysia says:

    Somehow i am provoked by this sense of excitement about the outcome of the by-election with DSAI winning the Voters of Permatang Pauh today.Yet nervousness also pervades with this continuous thoughts streaming in my mind that the BN in cohort with the Election Comssion will do their utmost to cheat with vote rigging and postal votes.
    I can only pray.

    Susan,

    For a very long time now, I’ve been filling out the space marked RACE on forms with the word MALAYSIAN and not malay. Looking at pics of Permatang Pauh many ceramahs justify that, don’t you think?

    I’m a proud Malaysian Moslem – that’s what I am. The Prophet Mohammad s.a.w NEVER championed ONE single race, and being a Sunni Moslem I try to live by his actions most of the time. To profess a single race as THE race reflects zionism( read:but NOT Jews) not Islam.

    My heart is beating so fast… Malaysia is on the threshold of rebirth. Winning P44 is not enough, PP voters must deliver a landslide victory to send a clear message.

    As it is, our honorable speaker of parlimen already indicated their next step… the winner of P44 may not get to sit till the next session in October. BN people are really a bunch of shameless, spineless people, with absolute no fear of God.

    Those of us who are not voting in PP, let us spend our spare moments to pray. Pray for voters to act decisively, to vote wisely. Pray for peace to prevail and that the police & FRU personnel will act justly to maintain law and order. Pray and ask God to expose every scheme of deception to commit election frauds, and to render all such schemes ineffective. Pray for good weather so that all voters can turn up. Pray for the EC officers to execise their duty without fear or favour. Pray for the polling agents appointed to be vigilant and responsible to carry out their tasks. Lastly, pray for calm for everyone, esp for supporters to keep a cool head no matter what.

    Finally, pray for God’s protection upon DSAI and his family. Lets give God no rest, until His purpose for Malaysia is fulfilled.

    FROM PERMATANG PAUH TO PUTRAJAYA!!!!!!!!!!!

    Susan,

    Thank you for the reports. You and the rest of the bloggers have done a wonderful job in letting us feel that we were there and letting us know the other side. For that, you are all as much a part of this victory from all of us seeking for a new and wonderful Malaysia. Thank you.

  32. For Pakatan's win says:

    A truly Malaysian spirit,PKR,PAS,DAP,All the Bloggers,all the people of Malaysia coming together unitedly to support their Prime Minister-to-be.You have all shown that a big win for DSAI is a major win for Malaysia.

    We have not seen this kind of ‘oneness’ for a very ,very long time in Malaysia.

    Thank you, Susan,RPK,and the bloggers,if not for you we will have to just settle for the gloomy local news thats not worth our money.We hope you great bloggers will publish your own Newspapers together, as soon as DSAI and Pakatan comes into power soon. We want an alternative national newspaper from YOU.

    Permatang Pauh,we will remember you for giving us the Prime Minster of Malaysia. Penang we appreciate your great contribution towards the nation.

    Today is the day
    The voters in PP will decide
    Who is the candidate?
    An ordinary MP or one who will walk in Putrajaya
    The voters have to make the right choice

    The 10 days intense campaigns
    The big guns and small cowboys
    Running, walking, smiling
    Capturing the hearts and souls
    Of the people in Permatang Pauh

    Dramas and threats
    Spies and bribes
    The long list can’t be forgotten
    Today is the day
    The voters in PP will decide

    Think of it
    Race base party or multi-racial
    Malaysia of many races
    Voters you decide today

    The country dreams
    The demons walk
    Make today a light for all
    We have seen the ‘dark’ too long

    BN is basically resigned to losing today, just unsure by how much.
    Anwar’s majority will probably be less than Wan Azizah’s on March 8.
    Wan Azizah comes across as a very warm person, a lot of people like her, whatever their political leanings. A lot of BN people voted for her.

    Lets face it, there is a hard core of people who really dislike Anwar, whatever he does or doesn’t say or act.

    A BN supporter was complaining bitterly how they have not been able to get their message across on-line. How ironic, considering their total control of all mainstream media. The round-the-clock in-your-face promotion of the Saiful swearing was a mistake. The conservative Malay group – the main target for this effort – was turned off by the graphic verbal detail in the video.
    “Muak” was the word I heard many times.
    Plus the appearance of the Imam who took Saiful’s sumpah.

  36. nuetral says:

    The way the Malaysians opposition plays the game, is really by criticizing/condemning the current government all the way down to the drain… Well, maybe the criticism is true… However, by doing so, they are putting standards that they themselves have to meet if they come to power… Once in power, if those standards are not meet ..well…all I can say is that Pakatan is just another Barisan with a different name ..we see

    In some country, a strong opposition like Anwar would have end up in jail in negative seconds.. He would not even have a chance to appear on TV !

  37. ah long says:

    Malaysia everything is boleh. Suppose, just suppose BN wins, what do you think is going to happen?

    SIL losted Rembau by a small margin after the first count but after the recount he won by a big margin due to “postal” votes. Can “postal” votes also turn BN’s fortunes around this time. Who knows?

    I reckon if DSAI lose and BN win all hell will break lose.

So much of equal access to the media, and Obama is not a faggot !! Like the Umno is claiming Anwar is. Once the opposition is in power, fire the police chief abolish the ISA and equal rights for all. Malays living here feel the same as me. Oh !! watch the democratic convention now. CNN, MSNBC, FOX, ABC, NBC and CBS staions will cover both the democratic and republican conventions. Hey RTM it belongs to the people not to UMNO and shame on you STAR and the Straits Times. you know what you are spewing.

    Susan, thanks for your ‘Now or Never’ report, it brought back old memories.
    I experienced such a fight between Dr Chen (DAP) and San Choon(MCA) in Seremban. The tactics used by BN were almost the same, using hantu, bribery and threats are similar…only this time it is worst, UMNO has stooped so low to use filth and ‘ugly sex’ as an election issue, it is simply repulsive.
    This is certainly an act of desperation, just to clinch on to power. It is time to drive these BN asses out, a time for a Change!

  46. bamboo river says:

    On the subject of postal votes. Be reminded that postal voters have a clear indication in this by-election that they too can make a difference.
    During the GE 12, no one, even the PR parties expected a huge support from the rakyat. The postal voters was in a bind, they wished to vote for PR but they do not know how is their vote going to make that difference during the GE12.
    Now, they only had to worry nothing at all. They are free to vote for PR as they know very well, only one by-election and not General Election is their call.
    I wouldn’t be surprised at all when the majority in the votes for DSAI came from postal voters too.
    It’s like the axe is in your hand and there is no one to stop you from chopping off that dying tree which is going to fall on your house .
    Oh, how is wished I am in PP now.

  47. machitam says:

    susan ” We now know what kind of person Anwar is,” he told me when I met him at one UMNO Youth gathering.

    that is an “escapeism” statement common not only to the malay but all races. usually they made this statement out of desperation i.e have reached a dead end, no other ways to use, have done all, to smear Anwar. yet, “force” one mind to enclose it… i.e give up.

    this is a feel guilty notion. they are the ones who are guilty and unable to overturn the mind of others…..”sekarang kita tahu siapa Anwar sebenarnya”

    Perngundi Permatang Pauh “sekarang inilah masanya untuk Anwar…”

    Observation: BN/Umno always instill fear to the rakyat to win votes.They are hypocrite. They say Bangsa Malaysia but now true colours emerge.They play fire with racial issues.Always using race to instill fear (old tactics) like predecessor TDM use May 13 to instill fear to prevent “reformasi” to the nation.Where have all the wealth in our country gone to over the last 22 years!Malaysia is wealthy but the rakyat is poorer by the month!Life is tougher for the poor and middle income group when the rich and powerful gets richer by the month.Now, it is people in the street POWER!Malaysia belongs to all HER PEOPLE regardless of race not to only ONE group of people.God help Malaysia who is blessed with plentiful not plentyFOOLS!

    Goood day ain’t it?
    Is it the last hurrah for the man who thinks he’s the alpha and omega of politicians?
    Pray so, Pak Sedih and Loo Seow Pek.
    We want peace, No?

  57. 2 cents says:

    i had a dream too..and it was a majority of 48, 888 votes for DSAI…
    YES !!

  58. 1st Battle:
    Barisan Rakyat broke 2/3 majority and won 5 states.

    2nd Battle:
    Pakatan Rakyat wins the mother of all by-elections.

    3rd Battle & Final:
    Paduan Rakyat should be named with blessings from God to take over Parliament at a later date.

    Paduan Rakyat:
    Signifying a highly harmonious populace ever willing to get together and work as one hence Paduan Rakyat means “We are One:-)Malaysian”

    P.A.D.U.A.N.
    PAS, Anwar & DAP Uniting A Nation.

  59. Damocles says:

    “Well, if he (Anwar) does not perform, we will kick him out,” said my friend. I totally agree with such progressive thoughts.

    If you kicked out Anwar (PKR), you’re most probably kicking out the PR.
    Since you’ve kicked out the BN, who will govern this country?
    Can anyone give an alternative.

  60. Menyalak-er says:

    Hi folks,
    Well i’m still hoping for pek moh not-so Arif to lose his deposit, but 23k+ majority by DSAI would be enough for me to burst out in Halleluia. What’shisname Akim mole fella will lose his sarong.
    Nuke them DSAI! Take no prisoners, for they are corruption.
    Alpha & omega? Has someone been reading Revelations? Premellineal i presume?

    i think he is saying that Anwar project himself to be the great or god of politician. he’s envious of ANWAR. 10 yrs ago he already concluded that anwar was gone for good. but dsai came back…with a bang and more to come. he’s a

    Polling Day: LIVE reports from Ground Zero, by Anil Netto

    12.30pm

    More than 50% have come out to cast their votes.

    11.30am from Azmin Ali

    UMNO and the police are attempting to prevent the Chinese and Indian voters from coming out to vote.

    10.30am

    Some PKR ‘pondok panas’ were abandoned. It is reported that BN may have bought off some party workers so that there would be no PKR pondok panas to service the voters.

    There is a reported heavy presence of security personnel in the Chinese areas. It is suspected that this move is meant to intimidate the Chinese voters so that they do not come out to vote. Some security personnel were seen ‘marching in formation’ as if ready for confrontation.

    Hi mac, wits0 and friends,
    Well he’s a she, it seems, but nevermind-la.
    The alpha-omega term is seldom used in secular discourses, and yes it means “God” in Christian theology. Mentioned only once in the Book of Revelations (last book of the Bible), which narrates the end times…
    What is interesting is that she used this unwittingly(?), or as a ‘Freudian’ slip(?) to depict DSAI as a “God” of politicians. Its a very serious offence to speak about another person in these terms. Or it may be just a way to insult the DSAI, whom she despises.
    Who knows…? Maybe she just wanted to showoff her English being a non-Christian.
    The ‘premellineal’ part is a reference to the end days of bumno, as wits0 kindly puts it! This is just theological view point used in reference to the shenanigans going on now. ‘Premellineal’ is seldom the view of Christians nowadays, because of the 2 World Wars in the preceding century against fascism.
    Yes, if one resorts to terms like this – their end is near.
    Cheers.

    Some words of caution nevertheless.
    Everyone in Permatang Pauh area must still be on guard and be very vigilant. Don’t let our guard down. Don’t let BN have any opportunity to carry out massive dirty tactics at last minutes.

    Hi mac, wits0 and friends,
    Seems to have lost some comments i just posted about idzan’s reference to alpha-omega thingy, p’haps due to the ‘net traffic.
    Never mind, yes she does mean what you say, mac, but she has taken it out of context. There is only one mention of this term in the Bible and it is found in the Book of Revelations (the last book) which is a narrative of endtimes.
    Since she is theologically shallow in a Christian sense, the inclusion of DSAI into this term is a highly personal insult.
    Whatever the case, wits0 has hit it on the head – by saying that now, is indeed the endtimes for bumno.
    Premillenial is theological concept whose core idea is that the metaphorical 1000 yrs. of God’s rule on earth.
    Cheers.

    Lunchtime.
    Its raining in Seberang Jaya. All my colleagues who are voters there have gone out to vote. Almost everyone I know is for Anwar, apart from one who is the daughter of an MCA-type towkay , and another guy who is active in Belia 4B (UMNO outfit)

    The atmosphere is electric, especially close to the polling stations. My employer is working as normal today (too big a disruption to have a sudden holiday), but I can tell you not a lot of work is being done in the office……lots of chit-chat about you-know-what.

    Seen a few cars with Diplomatic number plates – looks like many foreign embassies have sent their own staff to observe the by-election. Maybe the CIA and MI6 are here too….Wow ! The world is watching Permatang Pauh.

    Once the results are announced, Anwar will be pushing to be sworn in by Thursday, at the latest.

    Badawi will likely be facing Anwar for the debate on the 2009 Budget. I’d love to watch that one…

    If ever PR were to form d next govt. I think we have to face a lot of uncertain realities:First of all whether DAP can work with PAS. They can cooperate closely now is because they have a common enemy.e.g during WW 2 d Kuomintang cooperated with d communist to fight the Jap.however after WW2 both of them fought each other like mad.What happen if PAS insist on implementing Islamic law for the whole nation?. What happen if they were to be given Education portfolio & implement Islamic regulations for all school.Think of these impact on d nation. So all of u dont b that happy yet.

  87. Orang Utan says:

    No doubt PAS can be quite an honest party however when it comes to development they r not that quite urgent. They prefer to go slow i.e taking care of the spiritual first.If they insist on closing down all gaming outlets including casino they will do it. They r not bothered much about d economy. So what if our economy were to stagnate.

  89. Menyalak-er says:

    Oh no, Orang Utan (12:44), we’re not oblivious to that fact that DAP and PAS have polar views, nor are we ‘deifying’ DSAI. The point is – a change in governance is imperative now, a new hope for a truly Malaysian Malaysia.
    I don’t think any of us are so immature or naive as to think that there will be political peace. We must evolve or we’ll die as a nation…
    Are you saying that we shouldn’t have hope for a new beginning?

    3.00pm

    Voter turn-out is very low, estimated about 60%. Many factories refuse to declare today a public holiday. They will, however, allow their workers time off for a couple of hours but the massive traffic jams due to the many police road blocks are deterring the voters from going to the polling stations.

    PKR is mobilising cars and motorcycles and is knocking on the doors of the voters who are yet to come out to vote and is ferrying them to the polling stations. The rain is also a stumbling block, especially when many depend on motorcycles for transportation.

    Yeah, I heard about the police helicopter flying super-low.
    In clear violation of Civil Aviation regulations. If it were a civilian helicopter, the pilot could be facing a suspension of his licence.

    I guess the PDRM are not subject to such regulations.

    The heavy police roadblocks are definitely deterring some voters from coming out to vote, especially those already loaded with heavy commitments elsewhere.

    BUTTERWORTH: PKR supporters threw mineral water bottles at Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak when he visited the polling centre in Jalan Semilang on Tuesday.

    It is learnt the 11am incident happened when Najib was heading back to his car when a group of people believed to be PKR supporters started throwing mineral water bottles at him.

    His bodyguards quickly pushed him into the car and they sped away.

    Enraged Barisan Nasional supporters who witnessed the incident, retaliated by throwing sticks believed to be bamboo flag poles at the PKR supporters.

    That caused a throwing match of sticks and mineral water bottles between the two parties when FRU stationed there stepped in to defuse the situation.

    It is estimated that there were about 100 supporters on each side when the incident happened.

    Police confirmed the incident. No arrests have been made yet.

    Anwar leads with 61% of vote

    PERMATANG PAUH (Malaysia) – MALAYSIAN opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s party said on Tuesday its exit polls indicate he has won 61 per cent of the votes in a by-election expected to return him to parliament.

    ‘From our exit poll figures and what we are tracking, Anwar is safely leading in the polls and… I think it is right to say about 61 per cent,’ said Mr Sivarasa Rasiah, vice-president of the Keadilan party.

    Mr Sivarasa said that the candidate from the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition, Mr Arif Shah Omar Shah, had garnered about 39 per cent of the vote.

    ‘ We are still not declaring victory as we will wait for the official election results from the Election Commission,’ he said.

    Poll booths opened at 10am and are due to close at 5pm.

    Results are expected to be released by 10 pm.

    He warned that those caught in a group of more than five could be detained for unlawful assembly.

    Police expect a large crowd at Tuanku Bainun Teacher Training College, the tallying centre. They estimate that between 30,000 and 40,000 outsiders are already in the constituency.

    But knowing UMNO’s dirty tricks and underhand tactics, I am willing to bet that Anwar will end up either in “Heartbreak Hotel”, or doing his “Jailhouse Rock” soon.

    It has been confirmed that Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has flown back to KL, indicating that UMNO has lost and that he no longer sees any purpose in remaining in Penang. A few more busloads of phantom voters have been stopped. With barely an hour left till the polling stations close, and the thousands still stuck in massive traffic jams at police road-blocks, it is feared that many will not be able to vote — thereby denying Anwar the 15,000-17,000 majority.

    hi there menyalak-er, anonymous, wits0 and friends, …not forgetting idzan,

    idzan,
    i’m shocked to hear that you are actually a she. are you sure about that. you sound more like a he (my compliment)

    but if you are a shim, then you should understand better on this liwat thingy.

    you are absolutely right when you admitted that Anwar is an Alpha & Omega of politician. He’s a great man. well known and respected at home and internationally. his performance, when he was with the gomen was extraordinaire. British PM maggi Thatcher once cited Anwar the like of a top footballer of an EPL. every giant club would pay a fortune for him.

    he overshadowed your idol drM. and got the wrath..er sodomy 1.
    he came back. to unite malaysian. no politician in malaysia who can unite all races in malaysia to work together except Anwar. his trade mark is to protect and gave justice to the grassroot i.e the rakyat but not to forget the “orang kaya”, the think tanks, the upper society who can build the economy as well as run the country.

    have you read his book “the Asian Renaissance”. i’m sure you have read it but blocked your mind to understand it.

    i like it when you said that you did not envy Anwar but meluat and pity. i like because you use the word “pity” which can be understood on different contexts. what ‘s yours?

    5 minnute to polling to end… Anwar is expected to win handsomely….

    if you a really a she…..

Hmmmm, but with years in the prison, will that change a person? But I believe that we should give him a chance or whatsoever, as long as we could have a new leader to lead us. We just need a change, and HOPE.

  157. bangmalaysia says:

    According to Malaysiakini:

    Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s PKR said today its exit polls indicate he has won 61 percent of the votes in a by-election expected to return him to parliament.

    If the turnout is about 80 percent, this will translate into about 28,000 votes for Anwar against Arif’s 18,000, with a majority of around 10,000.

    Its still below 13,000 which Wan Azizah obtained. I wonder if this will attract the potential crossovers.

    Anyway I hope those MPs wishing to crossover to DO IT NOW, have the balls and courage to do it.

This possibility looms large after the government reached a sober assessment that it could all end in tears for the Barisan Nasional at the next general election if tough action is not taken to counter allegations on the Net and hold owners of blogs accountable.

    This conclusion was reached during a meeting last week involving several Cabinet ministers and senior government officials, including Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

    She could also see the three ‘pengundi hantu’ buses, now empty, in the police compound.

    Many PKR supporters have converged on the station and are becoming increasingly patient.

    YB Ronnie Liu is in the station. It is rumoured that YB Karpal Singh is also in there.

    Gobalakrishnan, who is reported to have been beaten up by police, together with hiis sons, and then arrested, is also reported to be held at this station.

    Word is that Gobala saw police escorting one of the buses and wanted to know why they were escorting the bus into Permatang Pauh.

    PERMATANG PAUH (Malaysia) – MALAYSIA’S ruling coalition on Tuesday declared defeat in a by-election against opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim who is bidding to return to parliament after a decade-long absence.
    ‘Yes of course we have lost…we were the underdogs going into this race,’ said Mr Muhammad Muhammad Taib, information chief of the United Malays National Organisation (Umno) which leads the Barisan Nasional coalition. . . .
    ‘We declare victory, the margin is very huge,’ said Mr Tian Chua, information chief of Anwar’s Keadilan party which leads a three-member opposition alliance.
    ‘I think it’s a landslide victory.’
    Mr Chua said that with half of the vote counted, Anwar had garnered at least 65 percent of the ballots and that the figure could rise as high as 70 percent once all the 38,144 votes cast were tallied. . . .

    This thumping 17,662 majority victory by DSAI represents a clear mandate from the Rakyat (People) for DSAI and his PR Alliance to capture the Malaysian Federal Government currently ruled by the BN/Umno regime since independence from Britain in 1957. Many see this victory as Independence for Malaysia from the corrupt and authoritarian BN/Umno regime of PM Abdullah Badawi…More http://margeemar.blogspot.com

    Malaysia’s Anwar claims vote win

    Former Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim casts his vote at Permatang Pauh
    Mr Anwar said Malaysians see the vote as a critical point in their history

    Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has won a landslide victory in a by-election in Penang, his party claims.

    “We won already. We are far ahead,” said Ginie Lim, spokeswoman for Mr Anwar’s People’s Justice Party, but she did not detail the size of the win.

    Votes are still being counted and there is no official result in the poll, which may return Mr Anwar to parliament after a decade’s absence.

    Turnout was high, and there was a heavy police presence around polling booths.

    Malaysia opposition claims victory

    Anwar was tipped to win the vote on the back of promises of change [AFP]

    Malaysia’s opposition has claimed a landslide victory for Anwar Ibrahim, its leader, in a special by-election for a parliamentary seat.

    Anwar’s party, the Keadilan, or People’s Justice, said on Tuesday that he is expected to win at least 70 per cent of the vote for the Permatang Pauh constituency in the state of Penang, just hours after polling closed.

    The projected win comes despite the former deputy prime minister fighting charges of – and due to go on trial soon for – allegedly committing sodomy with a male aide.

    Tian Chua, an official of the Keadilan party, said voters have given “a sound endorsement to Anwar”.

    There is “firm indication of a landslide victory for Anwar”, Chua said.

    The 61-year-old is pitted against Arif Shah Omar Shah, who represents the Barisan Nasional (BN) ruling coalition.

    Anwar was tipped to win the vote on the back of promises to bring about change and forge national unity.

    Then they can put tali round the neck helping each other, and then commit the gantung together.

    Then there is justice (keadilan) in Malaysia. Mampus to all the BN dogs aka MCA, Gerakan, Mic dogs. All will be rounded up, confiscate their loots plundered from Bolehland……

    Ling Liong Sick, Lim Keng Aid, Raapidah, Mohd Taib, OKT, LKS, Lee Kim Sai (shit), Sami no value…….all can tied together and sent for castration and dumped into Malaysia’s alcartraz……

    All the illegal money deposited/ hiding in foreign banks /fixed assets will be confiscated….. and their children also be castrated to prevent further crimes be committed.

    i was attracted by the words ‘sending the next PM to PutraJaya’ but how to achieve this, by persuading 30 over BN Mps to cross over or by dissolving PKR and rejoin UMNO. It looks like the former option is more risky to get its done, however the latter option by dissolving PKR is much more easier in order to achieve his personal goal to become PM.

    Based on earlier prediction of the chaining process since the formation of PKR till today indicates the tendency to disolve PKR and rejoin UMNO will be realised soon. 16 September is what for ???

  242. To perpetuate the “Dr. Arif Shah” deception, he got someone to actually create a website for this so-called Edison University of Technology.
    You can see it at http://www.eut.org.uk/

    Unfortunately the aspiring “doctor” was not smart enough and overlooked these things in his scam:

    1. The domain eut.org.uk was registered by someone in Penang who originally gave his address as Sungai Dua, Pg. (This detail has since been removed from the whois record of the domain name.)

    2. The domain is parked at the nameservers of a web development company in Bukit Mertajam (how convenient); the site was probably developed by the same company, wsatp.com.

    3. Domains’s IP address is 202.71.98.130 and IP location: Selangor – Puchong – Telekom Multimedia Of Telekom Malaysia Berhad

    4. Most of the text on the EUT site have been “borrowed” i.e. STOLEN from several other legitimate sites e.g. Honolulu University

    Here is just ONE example:

    Compare the text on:
    http://www.eut.org.uk/
    http://www.eut.org.uk/about-eut.html

    with this:
    http://www.honolulu-university.edu/presdent.htm

    Just in case, the aspiring doctor (who did complete his SPM by the way) decides to pull the plug on his website, you can see the Google cache of the site here while it is still available:
    http://72.14.235.104/search?q=cache:BGYK8ciNh6YJ:www.eut.org.uk/+eut.org.uk&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1
