It felt like the long-awaited MERDEKA celebration for Malaysians. Not because Anwar Ibrahim had won the Permatang Pauh by-election with an earthquake like majority last night.

It was because of the people who came together, irregardless of race and religion, to give BN/UMNO the strongest message ever.

That they want PAKATAN RAKYAT – a multi-racial coalition of PKR, DAP and PAS – to govern Putrajaya is quite a staggering thought.

At about 10pm, when Anwar and his friends emerged on stage at the Tengku Bainun teaching institute, the field drowned with intense shouts of Merdeka, reformasi, minyak turun (down with fuel prices) and cuti, cuti, cuti (off-day, off-day, off-day).

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng who was present on the victory stage, was amused. But he did not declare another public holiday.

“Fuel prices will not go down until we reach Putrajaya!!!” said Anwar in his victory speech. Read the rest of the speech @ Anwar Ibrahim’s blog.

 

(More videos inside)

*                    *                    *                    *                 *

Look at this amazing sight! The 10,000 strong crowd, who braved the drizzles, mosquitos, muddy field and what nots, sang NEGARA KU, the national anthem, when PAKATAN leaders gathered on the stage, after the EC declared a landslide victory for Anwar. 

At first, the EC did not allow Anwar to greet his supporters in the public rally. Then someone handed Anwar a loud hailer. A while later, we saw Guan Eng saying something to the effect of “we can use a mike”.

The crowd was electrified.

Earlier, everyone was wondering where were the BN/UMNO supporters. We could not see them across the field. One PKR supporter remarked cynically that they did not dare appear as they knew they have lost.

Another chipped in to say that perhaps it was too early? But there were still no signs of them until 11pm.

PAKATAN supporters entertaining themselves and others: “Where have all the money gone? They have been eaten by BN”. It was quite comical.

I asked them to repeat their song, which had lyrics like: “Where’s my cow, my cow wears BN clothes? Where’s my chick, my chick wear Puteri clothes?” – chick as in ‘ayam’. Aduh!

As the time draws nearer to announcement of the P44 results, the crowd started to pray for Anwar:

*                    *                    *                    *                 *

At around 8pm, I managed to get into the counting centre, even without a SPR yellow card. I did not want to miss this historic moment. I blend into the crowd of polling agents, journalists, photographers and Opposition members.

I sneaked passed the policemen and women who were guarding the various entrances. They were mighty strict. I supposed ‘peti undi-s” are sacred.

Election commission officials waiting for the session to end. They looked a bit tired:

I mingled among my reporter friends, photographers and PAKATAN RAKYAT MPs.  

When Anwar arrived about 9pm, everyone rushed to him, as usual. Everyone loves a winner. They make him sit on a couch with the label ‘calon’ pasted on top.

There were three couches. The other two calons, did not appear. So Anwar’s friends and family sat on them.

He actually spotted me in the crowd of reporters and photographers.

“SUSAN! What are you doing here?” he asked. He often made a joke about it. As I was always around in press conferences eventhough I am no longer working for an agency.

I wanted to wish him “CONGRATULATIONS!”. But I felt the people out there waiting for him, those who campaigned so hard for his victory, and those who believed in him (DAP, PAS, civil society representatives and ordinary folks who voted from him), deserved it more.

As for the journey to Putrajaya, you may read Malaysiakini. I did not stay for the press conference which took place about 11pm.

  9. genghiskan says:

    Yes, the remainign supporters stayed for quite a while as Anwar and the rest standing at the grandstand of the open Stadium Padang to start singing the Malaysia National Athem after continuous shouts of Merdeka Merdeka Merdeka.

    I dare say, perhaps, this is far more meaningful than the shouts of Merdeka by UMNO at Melaka in 1956.

    Give and take the first 3 great gentlemen Leaders TAR, TAR and THO, after that they are just a Mugabe and a Lousy Ustadz sleeping on the Jpb!

    And no barbed wires prevented the brave warriors from moving up front to the podium of the Grandstand.

    Ms, Sloone did you not like the better explosions of the Fireworks.

    And don’t forget, we have the unfisnihed job of catching the C4 fireworks they did on a poor helpless woman visitor to Malaysia.

    This is the real Merdeka for Malaysians.

    What will they do next?
    This is what Pandikar Amin said, as reported in The Star today:
    http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2008/8/26/parliament
    /22169935&sec=parliament
    “I do not see any urgency for me to fix a quick date. For all you
    know, the newly elected MP may want to go for a holiday first,
    or even for an umrah before coming to the Dewan Rakyat,” he
    said yesterday.

    a`uzhoo billah!

    This isn’t a BN/UMNO candidate, what Umrah what holiday is it the same –
    Like the late Dt. Mazlan visiting Umrah while soliciting the aid and giving thanks to deviants under the Devil’s charm.
    These vagrants in UMNO believe performing Umrah with other peoples money and loads of ill deed knowingly and deliberately conjured is the way all Muslims behave.
    Well I have news for the Monafik; DSAI won fair and square therefore his first calling is to be present in the Dawan ASAP.
    PKR responsibility is to the people which is meaningful and genuine change.
    GOD will be pleased, trust me.

    Go to hell! Zoo Keeper, Open the doors of the Dewan Encik Pandikar Amin and stop using phony excuses. You Shameless monafik.

    Stop insulting our nation’s intelligence and institutions. Let us urge our KING to step in now. Swear DSAI in at the His Majesty’s Royal residence its enough.

    Dear Susan,

    Thanks for the videos and heartfelt writeup’s! You have made it possible for those of us who couldn’t be there for the historic moments over there at Permatang Pauh get a taste of how it was like and feel the euphoria of the unimaginable success of the rakyat in overcoming all odds thrown at them by the ruthless BN scoundrels and political eunuchs!

    Love listening to and watching the Pakatan Rakyat supporters sing in unity and voice out their support to Brother Anwar!

    I am sure that deep in their hearts, many of the red helmeted FRU’s are celebrating in silence too!

    Malaysia needs a total revamp of its political system. The Pakatan Rakyat may not be perfect but they are a zillion times better than the rascals we have masquerading as the Government of Malaysia since 1957!!!

    I thank each and every voter out there at P44 Parlimen Permatang Pauh who voted for Anwar Ibrahim!

    May Almighty Allah bless you all and shower you and your loved ones with His Mercy and Salvation!

    I also would like to thank you Susan and all our fellow Malaysian Bloggers who were there to give us on the ground feedback and live reports as things took place.

    Please use your platform to seek the release of YB Gobalakrishnan and his family plus the PKR supporters who have been arrested and detained by the PDRM.

    Let’s all pray that this victory will be the turning point in our nation’s political set up and pave the way for a Pakatan Rakyat Federal Government very, very soon!!!

    Let’s bury the BN once and for ever politically and make sure that whomsoever was so bloody cocky and strutted around promising to bury Anwar go and take a flying leap into the nearest sewer !

    They must be made to pay for their sins against the rakyat!!!

    The good son triumphed
    In Permatang Pauh by election
    A victory the people needed
    For Anwar Ibrahim goes for change

    The old horse of BN
    Too old now to challenge the world
    Too many holes hardly have time to fill
    Dreaming of 3Ps
    This is what they do

    With the experience of 51 years
    They run the country with rules and divides
    Brewing race base benefits
    Saying they treat every one equal

    It is just a lie
    The policies stand out in our lives
    The malay supremacy rules
    Don’t they know we are Malaysians?

    Now Anwar has his rights
    The first hurdle accomplished
    The line has drawn closer
    Will a new government formed?

    The celebration for this victory
    It will never end here in PP
    The marching onwards is just beginning
    The prize is Putrajaya

    So will the Umno and Barisan trolls finally leave this site? I think so. Sodomy is really the last refuge of the scoundrel. I predict Badawi will drop dead of heart attack within a month. He was a loser ever since he went to his mother’s house to ask for her blessings when he became Prime Minister, then he goes and gets married, then he sits in charge of the biggest debacle in Umno Politics. So much for Mr. Clean. He is as clean and as trustworthy as Thaksin and that movie star from the Phillipines. Mr. Clean , konon.
    When all he can talk about is buggery. Hey, the 15 cents reduction of petrol really worked, la ! Whose idea was that? Khairy’s? Take your son in law and your family and spend the rest of your life in Harrod’s. Make your women happy, since you never bothered to do the same for our country.

    what is more significant of the victory?

    anwar stood tall. he spread the same message of change, the message for a united malaysia, the message for the need to do away with the corrupted NEP and replace with a need-based formula regardless of race and religion. and all these without compromising the position of islam and usage of bahasa maalysia. and he has been very consistent with this message even in the malay heartland of permatang pauh. this is evidence of a true visionary leader unlike that from BN who will change the race script depending on the audience.

    Thank you the people of Permatang Pauh. You all have spoken.

    A Sinking “Titanic” (BN) in Malaysia? (The show has just begun!)

    Malaysia’s Titanic (BN) was deemed unsinkable when it was first launched. Even when it hit an iceberg on 8 March 2008, it was so hard to accept that the ship will sink. When all efforts to save the ship from sinking was finally abandoned, the Captain (DSAB) just stood silently awaiting the fate as a forlorn man. He was hoping the Carpentia or some other nearby ships will come in time to save the passengers. It was sad to see the Captain firing off some distress flares to alert the Carpentier, but the Carpentier’s Captain (DSNTR) was just not convinced that the Titanic was in distress.

    In between is a love story of Leonardo DiCaprio (DSAI) and Kate Winslet (Azizah). Azizah refused to abandon her love, even though many a times, events show she should just save herself. She held on to hopes, hoping against hope that she and her love can pull thru and both will survive this tragedy. Both suffered mentally and emotionally and in the end, it was Azizah left to tell the tale of a great man who sacrificed himself to save her.

    As for the crew of the Titanic (Little Napoleons) and their friends who are rich and powerful corporate figures, who helped run the ship, did you see the desperation when they found out that the ship is really sinking. Most of them scramble to save their lives and abandon ship and some, with loads of money found they can’t buy anything they wanted, even a place on a lifeboat to save their lives (TDM migration). But not all, for there was a few brave Napoleons who tried to show they are committed to the name of Titanic (BN) and the show continues.

    There was an old couple who just lay in bed waiting for the ship to sink (MIC & PPP) abandoned by the young and too old to move around anymore. There were also musicians still playing the ship’s songs (MCA, PBB, LDP, PBRS, PRS, SAPP, SPDP, SUPP, UPKO) and died like true musicians dedicated to their role of love for music. There were also some crew (GERAKAN) still working to plug the leaks at the bottom of the ship until they themselves died thinking they were heroes not knowing the ship cannot be saved just by plugging some holes.

    Do you know who was the director of Titanic (BN) show? James Cameron (TDM).

    Did you know this show was shown around the world?

    Did you know Malaysia has some of the best actors and actresses and supporting casts?

    Anyway, it was just a movie, for the real show has only just begun!

    “Police Detain Four PKR Supporters, Including MP ”

    while cheering 4 the results, shall v show concern to this as well?

  71. ah long says:

    It is NOT over yet. Anwar can still lose his seat if he is found guilty of sodomy. The law clearly states that anyone convicted of a crime cannot sit in Parliament.

    So my guess is BN/UMNO will try everything in the book to gain a conviction by hook or by crook. That is why they are rushing this DNA law through parliament right now.

    They will try to get Anwar to “shoot aeroplane” into a jar and smear that all over saiful’s under pants to fabricate the eveidence to get a conviction.

    Nothing is below these people from BN. Najib is a scum bag.

    Congrats y’all

    Anwar won. Is it? Sure?
    No election fraud, rigging, adding more ballot papers?
    Sad. Very sad. Achy-breaky heart.
    But the people have spoken.
    God help Permatang Pauh.
    God help us all.
    Kudos BN for a free and fair elections.
    As I said in my ex-Star colleague Chun Wai’s blog: Politics is not so much a matter of holding good cards, but playing a poor hand well.

  74. Skeptic says:

    Give him 6 months, a year maybe, before you truly celebrate this victory, because he may very well not turn out to be the “saviour” you’ve been sucked into believing. Often times, you’ve got to take most politicians at face value and wait to see if they will deliver the goods. True sincerity is a very rare commodity among politicians. They are frequently guided by vested interests and hidden agendas.

    But savor the moment, if for no reason other than to give the middle finger to amno! You can hope that this was one of many many salvos to come that will eventually raze amno to the ground. It truly has taken 1/2 a century affect change.

  75. Jimmy Page says:

    “Kudos BN for a free and fair election,” kak idzan? Is that all you can say? Kudos?
    I pity you . Majority 15 000 and you still say kudos to BN. People like you are sad.
    Very sad. The only tactic they have is to have some guy swear on a quran. Is that the only way to win an election? Is that the only way to run a country? Allah will also condemn them, and if you cannot see that, then you are blind, deaf, and dumb.

    Najib Can Kiss Good-Bye To Premiership – If UMNO Members Fail to Dethrone The Trinity of Power “The Father, The Son, and The Son-in-law”, UMNO Has Forfeited Its Right To Lead and Rule

    As expected, Anwar won the Permatang Pauh By-Election. The larger margin of victory is significant as in any By-Elections the ruling party has a decisive advantage as it can marshal the entire government machinery and the mass media to bully the opposition. Yet, the Barisan Nasional failed to roll back the support of the rakyat for the opposition.

    Every dirty trick was employed to prevent Anwar Ibrahim from winning but to no avail. On the contrary, each exposé of the clumsy and stupid theatrics angered the electorate further.

    Anger against the inept and lame-duck Badawi was the principal cause for the defeat of the Barisan Nasional.

    That this by-election is the final warning to Badawi and his family to pack their bags and get out is evident from the sentiments of the non-Malay voters who have made known their views soon after Wan Azizah vacated the seat for her husband.

    If ever PR were to become d next govt. PAS have to abandon their agenda of turning this country into an Islamic state with hudud law. This will frighten away potential investors. The issue is how long can they cooperae with other Pakatan party is yet to be seen once their common enemy is gone.In order to sustain this coalition PAS need to have liberal & enlighten leader like the Perak mentri besar to look at a bigger picture. If ever the coalition were to break up in future it will be mainly because of PAS ‘s Islamic agenda.

    Now comes the hard part.
    UMNO will do ANYTHING – sell their mother, pray to Hindu Gods, etc. to stay in power.

    I think the most likely reaction to Anwar’s September 16 plan, if it happens, will be for UMNO to call a fresh General Elections and trigger another May 13.

    Of course, the result of P 44 shows the risk to UMNO of fresh elections – disgruntled voters may send even more of them into retirement.

    A big pleasant relief that Anwar won !Our rakyat wish lists will be fulfilled with DSAI as next PM.BN-uMNO failed because of one reason ii.e their 22 years of Mahaterism or better known as Mamakerism.That Mamak is not a true Malay. He doesnt represent the Malay race and culture as he is a truly Mamaksian.’97 asian crisis he ran to a mamak money changer for solution instead of getting advice from the professionals, he collaborate with Lingam etc etc.He is in disguise and a racist which does not represent the ordinary Malays’s view, only brain wash the Umnoputera/ris to divide and not unite the races. Now back fired! He also caused the divide amongst the Malays.If he cared for the nation, his job was to unite not divide. He ruined the Muhibbah vision that Tunku Adbul Rahman propagated. He is a real mamak! BN & Umnoputera/ris have been blinded by this one man and all became like “vultures” sucking the blood of the rakyat and the nation until left with bones. A rakyat’s view- actually if you look properly with an open mind the place Putrajaya government administration office look like an asylum (bad feng shui) no wonder all the BN got no more directions except to enrich themselves. They are paid by the rakyat and they squeezed from the rakyat. Police under BN rule only out to cari makan from the rakyat and not concentrating in their actual job to reduce crimes.Cant the police be paid well so that they dont have to cari makan by taking kopi money from us poor rakyat.Rakyat are very burden by having to paid hefty summonses for miniature offenses like parking etc etc.Pakatan, we rakyat risk ourselves for you DSAI so dont disappoint us when you are the next government.We welcome fuel reduction.Rakyat dont care about all these BN sandiwara and dirty linens or personal affairs, we only care for our living, cost of living, livelihood, economy, less burden n more job opportunities and nation progress, ethics and professionalism of the government with proper fund management and planning and no corruption.Corruption is the root of all evils in MalaYSIA.MERDEKA MALAYSIA & RAKYAT MALAYSIA.

  98. Orang Utan says:

    It is obvious that the failure of BN is due to several factors. The most important I would consider is their racist policy.I think Malaysia is d only few countries in this world that practices racial discrimination.For proof just look at the civil service i.e after 50 years they r just being dominated by only one race.Now even some govt own GLC r following suit. Second is corruption. When BN were given a big mandate in 2004 d PM did not act fast enough to stamp out corruption & to have a fairer employment representation in d civil service.Third is education which practices racial discrimation. Sad to say that d thinking of the UITM students r so shallow that it is not even worth mentioning here.

  99. idzan ismail says:

    Yo Mac

    Good news. Your idol will be sworn in as MP tomorrow.
    Wow the first comment last night he made was wanting to swear in expresso.
    But when it comes to swearing to prove his innoncence in front of Allah so, so reluctant.
    I once said whatever Anwar demands, BN kowtows.
    Not scared but fear of the ruckus that will follow by his street boys.
    I am glad for you guys he won. If not someone will be reading you all the riot act.

  100. Jimmy Page says:

    It is not about the racist policy, Malays voted for PKR and especially PAS. They were fed up of corruption , cronyism and nepotism, and the last straw was murder. How can it be the racisit policy when Malays voted out BN and UNMO? –Orang Utan…
    PKR would never have won without the Malay vote. It was bad management, and Najib.

    Cornered rats like idzan, peasant(piss ant?) now invoke Allah to save them. Easier to spread the plague, but as Dire Straits said,”that aint working”. Saifool`s sumpah also was ignored by Allah. The mosque too has been defiled.

  102. Jimmy Page says:

    Kak Idzan, you lost. Game over. Say what you want, but tomorrow when you wake up, you have still lost, and so much for your precious swearing on the Qu’ran. Why didn’t Najib swear on the Qu’ran about the Altantuya case? Why didn’t his wife swear? How come only you can choose when and where and what for to swear on the most Holy Book? Why didn’t Najib swear that he didn’t know her, and never met her? Why? Because he is afraid, and he is guilty and because he is the son of a PM , he does not have to. Malu punya Melayu. No shame.

  103. Orang Utan says:

    The present coaltion among d PR parties is very loose.They r now bonded by the fact that they have a common enemy to fight for.Therefore d PR coalition have to act fast.They have to come into a solid contractual agreement to map the future of this country.For e.g PAS have to denounce their Islamic agenda.As for DAP they have to recruit more Malays.At least 30% of the top leaders s/b Malays in order to atract the grassroot Malays to join them. However do not see anything like this to happen in d near future. Only PKR is quite representaive of all races.

  104. machitam says:

    dear idzan(a he or a she or a shim)

    idzan “No election fraud, rigging, adding more ballot papers? ” even we won, i think was fraud, the answer is yes idzan. you know what?
    EC announced from the voters register, voters turnout is 65 % and total votes counted is 81%.
    Anwar got 31,195 votes = 53% let’s say Ariff got the balance i.e 12% voters turnout
    Thus Ariff got 12 %( benefit of a doubt) =7020 votes vs 15500 votes he got.

    Idzan, how do the extra 10,000 votes got counted?

    idzan,
    please get your priorities right. Unless you are ignorant of the going ons about the swearing episodes.
    Swearing to Allah is between a muslim and Allah. No one , even the highest Ulama can dictate or force a muslim to swear to Allah. Even Nabi Muhammad (PBUH) do not tell his wife to swear when she was accused of close proximity. ( RPK enlightened me on this !)
    So, do not forsake Islam for your own political benefit!
    Swearing in Parliament is a law and DSAI or any MPs is compelled to do so. Swearing to Allah is personal .
    Do not misguide yourself about Islam, we non muslims are not stupid for we have muslim friends whom are willing to explain to us .

    Dear Orang Utan,
    i seriously think that those 3rd. tier ‘unmentionable’ substandard parties that are within the ruling coalition are totally irrelevant now.
    There is no need for them to do any analysis, because they should have stood up in days gone by against the fascist-racists in bumno. Their analysis are likely to be the karat ‘blue ocean strategy’ thingy which is useless today.
    It is good that you are cautioning about the creeping ‘Islamization’ that can occur, it is also possible that we can see a true democracy with an enlightened ethnically ‘Malay-Muslim’ leader, for example DSAI, RPK, Nizhar, Husam etc.
    Surely all this is better than the ‘civilizational hadhari’ stuff that allows all sorts of swearing on the Holy Book, false witnessing, corruption and syncrestic-animistic behavior of the ‘reaper of Mongolian souls’?
    I would rather trust the so-called ‘devil’ i don’t know (actually i ‘do’ know) than the devil i don’t wish for.
    We see a new dawn coming, and we can only hope for level heads to prevail.
    Meanwhile, i thank Jimmy Page and others for patrolling this site with his wit and all our friends here (including detractors), for i’ll take a hiatus for a week to reconsolidate.

    Bloggers, you connected us to the main ‘players’ effectively. Our admiration and gratitude to you.

    Now, do you think we should celebrate Merdeka with the people of Kelantan.
    Why Kelantan,you may ask?

    In PP by-elections,for DSAI and Pakatan,the Kelantan people who are the furthest from the east came to Penang and supported us fully to ensure a victory for DSAI.

    Now,don’t you think we should celebrate Merdeka in Kelantan,as a mark of respect for Tok Guru Nik Aziz,a very senior politician and the people of Kelantan. No state in Malaysia must suffer in silence. All states must be viewed equally. For along time now, Kelantan has been labelled as a extremely fanatical state which we all know by now that this is not true.

    We as Malaysians must break free from this ‘isolation’ mentality. Every state must be equally doing well.This Merdeka season why don’t we travel up to Kelantan in large numbers and buy all the Kelantan products like their beautiful batiks,souvenirs,decorations,foods,ikan kering and whatever we can find there and give the people of Kelantan, a Hari Raya bonus.

    Kelantan must be viewed as any state,with all its people with no lack just like any state. Well, this is just a suggestion. But I will go with my family and bless the people of Kelantan which ever I can. maybe, we can visit all the orphanages,rehabilitation homes,home for the old and neglected and bless them with some material blessings that we can afford and tell them sincerely that we are there for them and their well-being.

    alas, we finally made it. at least we are now at the end of the tunnel. but there is another journey, a mountain to climb, to get to our destination, Putrajaya.

    this time along the way, we have to “uproot” 30 or more trees(BN MPs’) that stand on our way. we need this trees. these trees may not be able to be uprooted easily. the mountain keeper or “penunggu” (bodohwi, najis and gang) will be “guarding” these trees with a “devil” holding a hook.

    let us pray that good will overcome evil in this journet to Putrajaya.

    Orang Utan,

    You cannot make PAS more DAP than DAP. With more than 1.5 million
    active members, PAS is the second biggest party after UMNO.
    And these members believe in that ideals.

    In a democracy, anybody can have any ideals and I don’t think it
    should be wrong even if you don’t agree with it. The key thing
    is to tolerate one another and making decision for benefit of all.

    I personally feel, no party in PR should push their own agenda
    the way UMNO have been pushing the rest of the parties in the
    BN coalition. PR should not repeat BN’s mistake, or it will ended
    up like BN sooner or later (by serving interest of certain parties only).

    Each party should stick to their own ideals, but in a coalition,
    please work as a team. No party in PR should call another
    party stupid or outdated just because they don’t believe in their ideals.

    Anyway, congratulations to people of Permatang Pauh for making a very
    wise decision.

    IMHO there is too much focus on politics right now. In fact, it had all started from around the last GE, and has continued until now. It will remain so at least Sept 16.

    Folks, in this frenzy of all things political, let’s not forget “the other things” that are even more important than who gets to rule Malaysia; centred around living life to its fullest … relationships, improving our selves, interest in and care of others…

    LOSERS

    – Umno

    The charade is over. This is a party without spirit. This is a party without a leader. Ministers, deputy ministers and other senior party officials all campaigned in Permatang Pauh but it was more out of duty than anything else. There was no fire in their bellies. Some could not care less how Datuk Arif Shah Omar Shah performed in the polls. They showed up in the constituency to canvass for support in the upcoming divisional elections in October. One former menteri besar, eyeing a top position in the party, holed up in a hotel and dished out cash to streams of divisional officials. This is a party made of politicians who are consumed with their own interest and completely detached from reality. This could be the beginning of the end of this once powerful party.

    – The Barisan Nasional machinery

    There was a time when the Opposition used to shudder at the prospect of facing the formidable machinery, the women who used to campaign tirelessly from dusk to dawn, the men who braved the elements to tear down Opposition posters and ferry voters to the polling station. Not anymore. Dispirited, they just did the bare minimum in Permatang Pauh. In fact, it was the Pakatan Rakyat machinery which caught the eye. Their workers displayed the spirit of volunteerism which was once patented by the BN. How the mighty have fallen.

    – Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

    He was not in charge of the BN by-election team but the president of Umno and the chairman of the BN will not be able to absolve himself of blame for this dismal showing. The unvarnished fact is that he has not been able to inspire his party or the ruling coalition since March 8. If his party workers are listless, it is because they do not see him as a general capable of galvanising the troops in the face of an enemy’s onslaught. If his coalition partners are feeble, it is because they do not see him as a leader capable of reviving the BN. In all likelihood, there will be calls for him to speed up the transfer of power.

    – Najib Razak

    Without a doubt, the deputy prime minister is hurting. The uninterrupted stream of attacks on his character, his wife and allegations that he was involved with the murdered Mongolian model Altantuya Shariibuu have damaged him in the eyes of the public. His words once used to carry weight but now they ring hollow. His decision to swear in a mosque that he was not involved with Altantuya did not find popular support. Still, he remains best placed to take over from Abdullah. But he will need much repair to his image before he can claim to have the support of Malaysians.

    – Saiful Bukhari Azlan

    He claimed it was a coincidence but his decision to swear on the Quran on the eve of nomination day that he was sodomised by Anwar does not look very clever now. A snap poll of 544 Malay voters by the Merdeka Centre painted him as a pawn in a political game. He should stay out of the limelight till the trial begins

    Kota Kinabalu, August 27, 2008: SAPP President Datuk Yong Teck Lee on the landslide victory of PKR Advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim at the Permatang Pauh by-election 26 August 2008

    1. The land slide victory of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim augurs well for non-racial politics in Malaysia. The rejection of racial politics shown in the March general elections has been repeated resoundingly by the voters of Permatang Pauh of whom 69% are Malays.

    2. But the BN leadership, especially UMNO, never learn. Instead of strengthening national unity among the people, UMNO tried desperately to whip up racial emotions on the NEP issue by mob demonstrations in Penang immediately after the elections. The orchestrating of the student demonstrations at UiTM by UMNO this month, the inflammatory speeches of their MPs in Parliament and racial instigation against SAPP MPs over the no confidence motion in June all prove that the BN and UMNO are still trapped in the old mind set of racial compartmentalization of Malaysian politics.

  178. sheema says:

    The Permatang Pauh by-election and Anwar Ibrahim’s victory is a historic milestone in Malaysian nation-building and political development for three reasons.

    It is firstly a ringing endorsement of the March 8 “political tsunami” where Malaysians transcended race, religion and political affiliation to vote as one people to demand an end to the decades of Barisan Nasional misrule, abuses of power, corruption and human rights violations.

    It demonstrates that the 12th general election results which saw the establishment of five Pakatan Rakyat state governments and the end of the unbroken two-thirds parliamentary majority of the Barisan Nasional represented the deep-seated aspirations of Malaysians and not a fluke shot or fleeting phenomenon.

    Secondly, it is an unmistakable verdict on behalf of 27 million Malaysians at their disappointment with the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, the Cabinet and the Barisan Nasional component parties at their failure in the past six months after the March 8 general election to end the deepening crisis of confidence and restore public trust and faith in the government as well as a censure of Abdullah’s failure to honour his renewed pledges to implement wide-ranging reforms, especially the police, the judiciary and on anti-corruption.

    Anwar’s in, Pak Lah’s out
    ANALYSIS

    AUG 27 — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s stunning win at the Permatang Pauh by-election not only cemented his position as the undisputed leader of the opposition in Malaysia, it prompted senior Umno politicians to begin the countdown to Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s last day in office.

    The majority view is that he has to go by the end of the year if Umno and BN are to stand any chance of checking the advance of Pakatan Rakyat and holding onto to power at the next general elections.

    Tuesday night was a repeat of March 8 with Pakatan Rakyat giddy with an electoral success and BN politicians dizzy with another rejection by the public.

    But the joy was sweeter for the opposition because their icon not only won but did so in style, trouncing BN’s Arif Shah by a 15,671 majority, 2,000 more votes than what his wife obtained five months ago.

    The pain was more severe for BN because unlike March 8, they were not caught blind-sided. They poured in millions of ringgit into the campaign, brought their heavy hitters, threw every conceivable missile at Anwar but still ended up losing badly.

    The consequences of the Permatang Pauh by-election could be far-reaching, with even Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s neatly-packaged two-year transition of power under threat from increasingly disillusioned party members and leaders of coalition partners.

    On Tuesday, only two hours after the last box of votes had been counted, senior Umno politicians were in deep discussion over the need for Abdullah to step down, believing that he had lost the ability to check a resurgent opposition.

    A check of the voting pattern at 25 polling stations showed that Anwar snared a handy portion of Malays votes and the bulk of non-Malay votes.

    Even the Siamese electorate – a traditional bank of BN support – gave their vote to Anwar.

  180. sheema says:

    Najib put on a brave face, saying that Anwar’s victory proved that democracy was alive in Malaysia. Left unsaid was that the BN defeat showed that not much had changed on the ground since March 8. Despite the raft of promises by Abdullah to reform the system, the public was not moved.

    If anything, Permatang Pauh confirmed that Chinese and Indians no longer fear giving their support to the Opposition.

    It also confirmed that the umbilical cord between the Malaysian voter and the Barisan Nasional has been severed.

    BN politicians have compiled a list of excuses for the heavy defeat, saying that Permatang Pauh has always been Anwar’s fortress; that the campaign was pockmarked with allegations and innuendoes and that the electorate was in no mood to support the establishment because of the rising cost of living.

    But they all sounded like excuses and could not obscure the fact that BN suffered its heaviest by-election defeat in recent memory.

    Never has BN been in a deeper hole. Never has Abdullah Ahmad Badawi faced such a bleak picture.

  181. sheema says:

    Now Umno must ask if Najib can take on Anwar
    Commentary by Leslie Lau

    AUG 27— When Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Najib Razak decided at the height of the Permatang Pauh by-election campaign to swear in a mosque that he had nothing to do with murdered Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu, it was meant to show up Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as a hypocrite for not daring to do the same over the sodomy charges he faces.

    Yesterday’s results – a thumping win for Anwar – showed instead that Najib’s move had failed.

    Najib’s stewardship of BN’s campaign failed to even chip away at Anwar’s support, and instead raises questions about whether he can lead Umno towards regaining the large chunks of Malay votes it has already lost to the Pakatan Rakyat alliance.

    The massive defeat the PKR leader inflicted on the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate may have also put a dent in Najib’s own drive to succeed Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi as prime minister and Umno president.

    “Yes, Najib will take over but there are worries over whether he can take on Anwar,” a senior Umno leader told The Malaysian Insider.

    “Despite the swearing, the Mongolian thing has still not gone away.”

    While not one shred of credible evidence has surfaced so far to show Najib’s involvement with the Mongolian model, the DPM has found it hard to shake off the allegations against him.

    His swearing in a mosque has done little to help repair the damage to his reputation.

    This is because the by-election was about Anwar’s credibility, and a majority of voters chose to believe him over whatever was said by Najib and other BN leaders.

    Yesterday’s results have also reignited calls for Abdullah to step down sooner rather than in 2010 when he has promised to hand over the reins to Najib.

    There is now concern that Abdullah is a liability and that his perceived weaknesses will allow Anwar to topple the BN coalition soon.

  182. sheema says:

    But while there is strong support within Umno for Najib to take over as prime minister, the big loss in Permatang Pauh also demonstrated that the DPM had little sway outside his own party.

    Under his stewardship, the BN campaign machinery failed to convince enough voters to at least reduce PKR’s majority from March polls and therefore score a moral victory.

    But with few credible alternatives, Najib remains the best bet to take over Umno.

    He will have to prove his mettle in the weeks and months to come as he goes head-to-head against Anwar in Parliament.

    Najib will have to prove his ability to unite the disparate parties of his BN coalition against the onslaught expected from Anwar.

    The slowing economy will certainly help Anwar, and Najib, more than the PM, will have to show the BN offers a better future than a Pakatan Rakyat government.

    As the Permatang Pauh election results came in last night, satellite television station Astro’s news channel Awani featured prominent political analyst Prof Datuk Dr Shamsul Amri Baharuddin describing Anwar as the new “head boy in the classroom” in response to a question of whether the former DPM could unite the disparate parties within the PR alliance in his new role as parliamentary opposition leader.

    “Such is his ability that with one look or just a turn of his head he will be able to ensure the others toe the line,” Dr Shamsul quipped.

    What he meant was that Anwar has excellent leadership qualities.

    Is Najib enough of a leader to take on Anwar? The answer will begin revealing itself when Anwar returns to Parliament tomorrow.

    My friends, ease off. On Sept 16 Najib is still DPM.
    Come 2010 Najib is your PM.
    Anwar’s victory yesterday was also due to PAS’s hard work.
    PKR people are only good at shouting slogans, beating up people, pushing old folk to stop from voting and throwing mineral water bottle at the DPM.
    If not for PAS, the PKR boss will lose.
    So Hadi Awang has the right to stake a claim in becoming PM.

And if you are hoping that Daim and his billions can come and save the day once again, stop dreaming a fool’s dream. Change is afoot in Malaysia, the silent majority has decisively moved away from BN to PR.

    UMNO has lost what is termed moral authority or legitimacy or mandate of heaven to rule Malaysia. Not even the TRUTH can save UMNO now, for without the moral authority bestowed by the silent majority, no ruling class can rule!

    Idzan, I agree with you. Najib will become the PM first before Anwar. That is because Najib will be the last part of the RAHMAN prophecy which will see the ultimate downfall of UMNO. So pray very hard that Najib becomes the next PM of Malaysia. As for Anwar, originally slated by destiny to be part of rahmAn but then became the chosen one to bring about the downfall of UMNO. That is why his downfall from UMNO, arrest, conviction and beating by the police is actually a blessing in disguise. There is a saying that you should be grateful to the people who do evil unto you because it will make you stronger and wiser. And Anwar is stronger now then he ever was inside UMNO. Cometh the hour, cometh the man!

    And Idzan, I don’t know about you but I distinctly heard in the first video posted above that Anwar thanked Nik Aziz and Husam Musa (and by extension PAS). And here we have an idiot who is deaf like you who say Anwar is ungrateful and didn’t thank PAS. Might I humbly suggest that you wear a hearing aid and use your brain first before embarrassing yourself?

    Does being ungrateful to the son of that Kerala Indian include spending 6 years in jail and suffering a horrendous beating at the hands of the police? I would like to see how man you are to be willing to spend 6 years in jail and being whacked by the police. Take it as a test of your gratefulness to that Indian Muslim.

    Wow goldern screen

    You are hurting this lady here. Don’t be so harsh and uncouth like calling me idiot and deaf okay.
    I didn’t read nor hear it from the main papers or the radio and Tv, okay.
    Also don’t be such a racist. What’s wrong in being an Indian Muslim from Kerala?
    If you must know Dr M loved him so much, but he betrayed that trust.
    So isn’t ungrateful is the word.
    People are not jailed for nothing.
    I rest my case. Nite

  189. “Fooled!”
    On 25 August, the Deputy Home Minister Chor Chee Heung was quoted to have said this in Parliament:

    “I hope voters in Permatang Pauh will not be fooled by Anwar Ibrahim’s campaign.”

    Well, it certainly looks like the voters in Permatang Pauh have been “fooled”. The MCA voters in Permatang Pauh have been “fooled”. In fact, the whole country have been “fooled”. We have all been “fooled” by DSAI that he can bring about real change to the nation, for that is why the people of Permatang Pauh voted the way they did.

    Therefore we, the members of the seven MCA branches in PJ Utara, call on our leaders to take MCA out of BN NOW for the people of Permatang Pauh have shown to us that they would rather be “fooled” by DSAI than to remain as parrots and puppets in the BN coalition.

    For those who cannot access Malaysia Today, do not worry. There are workarounds that these fools at MCMC will never be able to beat.

    The followings can be used as an effective way to circumvent internet censorship:

    1. Accessing a mirror site
    2. Using a non-censoring DNS-server
    3. Using a non-censoring proxy server

    1. Access a mirror site
    For instance, Malaysia Today can be accessed at this moment at http://mt.harapanmalaysia.com

    2. Using a non-censoring DNS-server
    Change your DNS to OpenDNS server 208.67.222.222 or
    208.67.220.220 .

    Click http://www.opendns.com for more info on how to set DNS.

    3. Using a non-censoring proxy server
    This blocking can be circumvented by surfing through a proxy site:
    http://proxychina.org
    http://proxy4china.com

    There are many proxy sites available, just google for them.

    Another better and effective way to circumvent internet censor is by using Ultrasurf. It is developed by the people against internet censorship in China. It enables users inside countries with heavy Internet censorship to visit any public web sites in the world safely and freely while it automatically searches the highest speed proxy servers in the background.

    Download Ultrasurf software from:
    http://www.ultrareach.com
    http://www.wujie.net/downloads/ultrasurf/u.zip

    Then extract the file and run, that’s it.

    If you are using browser other than IE, then you have to manually change your proxy IP address to 127.0.0.1 with port :9666 .

    Say NO to internet censorship!

  198. BN Partyman says:

    Wits0 and Hunk don’t be too happy with your comments and sneering !

    BN Partyman” sent in this comment, which contains a none-too-subtle threat.

    Dear Anil,

    Your biased live coverage of the PP buy-election was disgusting to say the least. It seemed like the Barisan Nasional was non-existent in PP. The fact that more than 15,000 people voted for Arif Shah is testimony to BN’s popularity. If it were not for the rough house tactics of the PKR goons, more legitimate voters would have made it to the polling stations. You and your ilk ought to be detained under the ISA and the keys thrown away.

    You are partisan, unfair, biased, and a false witness to the events in PP. Like the 31,000 odd who voted for Anwar, you are ungrateful for the development and progress wrought by the BN. Honestly ask yourself: Would you even own a laptop or even know how to use the Internet if not for the education that the BN gave you? Just like the other bloggers and commentators on the blogsites, you bite the hand that feeds you. You are despicable and so is Raja Petra and the likes of him.

    When the BN government finally wipes out the Opposition from the face of this Earth, we’ll be coming after you and all of your ilk for the lies and ridiculous untrue propaganda that you spread to the innocent rakyat. Unfortunately it seems now that a large minority of the rakyat are stupid enough to pay attention to the lies of the Opposition. The BN will educate them very soon and I assure you it will be a painful lesson indeed.

    BN Sakthi!!!

    “Bamboo river. So hilarious, Your Islamic reference is RPK. wakaka. If it’s tok guru or some ulamak, I salute you” – idzan.

    idzan, you are saying the messages conveyed by Raja Petra Kamarudin about Islam from the Holy Quran is laughable and hilarious.You are insulting not RPK but the Holy Quran and Islam.
    Bertaubat lah!

    I seriously doubt Badawi or Najib will survive their own party Elections.
    Forget about Najib taking over until 2010, he won’t even take over for a week.
    As for Badawi, when he goes down he will take Najib with him. Permatang Pauh is the day that UMNO died. And this UMNO will never be reborn. Even Razaleigh will have to start another party with another name. He has done in before with Semangat 46 and he will do it again. Hishamuddin can take over UMNO but he will have no coalition partners, as MCA and MIC are finished, and Gerakan is on the way to join Pakatan.
    So, keep your insults going for the next three months, because that is all the time you will have in the world. Your time is over. Your BS is over and your voice is useless, UMNO people.
