I attended a forum on SIBU last week at the PENANG Chinese Town Hall, and as expected, it wasn’t really an analysis of the Sibu by-election. It was a propaganda talk by the DAP, but since they organised the forum, can anyone fault them for it?
Which is why I am looking forward to another review of Sibu, this time, it promised to be a multi-perspective review. More details below:
