As i said earlier i'm not a surprise that PKR wins big in this Bi-election. Its a just a bi-election created by PKR to lure BN. But it's a surprise when the turnout was very bad. Less than half the voters turn-up on Sunday. Whatever PKR said does not make any sense anymore. The fact is PKR need to swallow that the voters in PENANTI trying to show something. Probably only the 'hardcore' PR people cast their vote that day. The rest of the voters either going out vacation or just relaxing like any other weekend.
Anyway, let me conclude something for both side :-
PKR & PR
- This bi-election actually a shameful winning for PKR. And i think deep in the hearth the PKR candidate feels something. (i will if i was him)
- Losing 1200++ vote from previous bi-election shows that DSAI tactics was terrible. Whatever the reason is they still cannot convince the voters to turn up.
- PKR tactics actually effects their friends in PR which is PAS & DAP
- For the 1st time seems that BN make a right decision. They actually lost the battle but gain moral battle looking at the result of the battle. Retreat is an exceptional strategy.
- Morals are high & this will boost the spirit for next bi-election in Kelantan.
- Eventhough BN did not contest in this bi-election its crucial for BN to make a post mortem on what had happen & learn the trend of the voters.
- I wonder where is the post mortem that Vice President of UMNO talking about when he announce after winning the post.
Anyway, its the 1st time in this 2 years that bi-election runs smoothly without much attention by press or media. One might hardly know that there's a bi-election going on. :)
