  7. #7 by bentoh on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 7:18 pm

    Air Kuning – Younger voters were more willingly voting for PAS, but it seems BN is strong in a Malay ground…

    Kuala Sepetang – Well you can say Chinese voters across the age spectrum are all for PR… :)

  12. #12 by ALLAN THAM on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 7:52 pm

    Chinese have throw all their support to PAS. let all support PR who sincerely committed to a fair, clean and non race base politic. Let condemn all politic that is still based on race and we support all effort to serve all Malaysian with the division of race.

    Never return the old hat politic who has divide and rule us for decades.

  13. #13 by ALLAN THAM on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 7:56 pm

    The message that the Chinese sent out to BN and MCA/Gerakan in more specific. You just can tell your lies year in and year out. Can’t you understand the meaning of enough is enough!!!

  14. #14 by UzMiNoOnist on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 8:01 pm

    This was what happened in Rembau during the last 12th GE. He was trailing behind by 2000 votes, then suddenly the light went out. When the light came back, he was leading by 3000+ votes.

    Is this blackout the work of unseen hand?

  15. #15 by ReformMalaysia on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 8:12 pm

    A win in Bukit Gantang means ‘the real king in democratic system-the people’ prevails !

  16. #16 by ALLAN THAM on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 8:15 pm

    What seem to be an insult to the Chinese by saying that go go girl is Chinese culture now the voters in Sepetang gave their unreserved no no to BN. The say old saying BN has been telling lies for decade even cows also turn to be genius after listening to too many repeating lies.

  17. #17 by ALLAN THAM on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 8:33 pm

    The Tree democracy is here to stay. Our brother PAS is pulling away with more than 3000 majority. bearing unforeseen event our brother Nizar will be back to Parliament. Cheer!!!

    I’m from Taiping and often had meals with family in Matang & Sepatang, no development can be seen in years. They (MCA & Gerakan) claimed these are their strong hold. Whats a shame…

  20. #20 by ALLAN THAM on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 8:41 pm

    Bk Selambau will also deliver a good finishing and this will finish off the old hat who still chose to manipulate his words by twist and turn. Cheer mate. Beware with his return the scenario may not be good. We have to strong and hold up to the 308 forces and be the next GE be our final push for a fair, non race base and clean government.

  24. #24 by a-malaysian on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 8:50 pm

    YB Kit,

    I think the column for the stream result is not right. Only Kuala Sepetang is correct. For others it shows bn is having the majority.

    Malaysia For All

    GE 13 – No matter what, we must ensure that racist umno bn do not regain the power like they had for the past fifty one years.

  25. #25 by computation on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 8:51 pm

    i say man

  26. #26 by citizenwatch on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 9:00 pm

    What is a-malaysian saying? This doesn’t look right!

  27. #27 by ALLAN THAM on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 9:05 pm

    Bk Gantang& Bk Selambau victories shown the voters has become matured and they understand what is democracy is all about. Voters also vote for real changes that was badly needed at this point of our Malaysian history. We also realised except the unrepentant BN, that only fairness to all will survive the challenge ahead of us. Divisive politic will never survive. Corrupted politic also will not survive. The message has been strong since 308 and the momentum will not lost as far as the corrupted and abusive war lords of BN remain unrepentant.

  28. #28 by ALLAN THAM on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 9:11 pm

    Yes, brother Nizar has just left the party’s operational centre in his SUV and waving to his supporters as if he has just won US president race. as quoted Malaysiakini.
    Yes, brother Nizar you reserve it for what BN has done on you and other PR members. Let celebrate tonight, if you may not like to tango as Obama did , but you may joggit sikit sikit, as the real fight will start tomorrow in the high court.

  32. #32 by vsp on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 10:01 pm

    So UMNO claimed that they have a secret weapon. This weapon happens to self-destruct anyone who uses it.

  33. #33 by ShiokGuy on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 10:08 pm

    So what now BN/UMNO?

    So what now in Perak? Statewide election is the only way to go. Don’t tell us this is not the referendum for the people of Perak. If you dare, call for a statewide election now. Got Ball?

    Prediction = 2-1 is correct! Because PR will not win Sarawak’s rural area, why? read my experience as boat man in Sarawak..


    Congratulation to PR

    Shiok Guy

  34. #34 by dapsupporter8888 on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 10:16 pm

    YES!!! I feel so happy that PR won!

    YB Nizar, now that Malaysians have voted for you, please serve the rakyat fairly. No race-base politics, please. We have confident that you will be able to deliver your job, both as an ADUN & also MP.

    Only people with one sided of their brains working still voted for BN. Its sad that in the interior areas of Sarawak, people are still supporting BN.

  35. #35 by negarawan on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 10:42 pm

    Mahathir should have gone to Batang Ai too ;-)

  36. #36 by negarawan on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 10:50 pm

    Samy Velu visited the sick Hindraf guy in hospital and he said he cares for Hindraf. Did you ever visit the Hindraf leaders in Kamunting prison? Not even once. Samy Velu is as fake as the hair on his head.

    Release Hindraf trio from ISA! Dissolve Perak state assembly!

  37. #37 by ttc on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 11:03 pm

    2009 Resolution: Seek out all garbage and recycle or dispose post haste for a healthier life and planet!

  38. #38 by Onlooker Politics on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 11:14 pm

    Pakatan Rakyat’s victories in two bukits indicate that it is time for the mourning of Mahathirism! It is time for Dr. Mahathir to admit that his personal political influence has been rapidly diminishing among the Malaysian people and the senile old man has failed to understand the true needs of the people due to apartheid in politics caused by Umnoputraism.

    PR’s victories also mean that majority Malaysian people would like to actively take part in politics by voting in the election for purpose of ensuring that the power of forming a government be placed in the hands of an alternate political party in order to put checks-and-balances on the ever-growing arrogance and deep-rooted corruption culture of Barisan Nasional!

  39. #39 by negarawan on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 11:22 pm

    Mahathir is a racist who has destroyed the fabric of racial harmony in many aspects of Malaysian life during his tenure. The only times when he cooperates with non-Malays is when it concerns money making for himself e.g. his projects with certain Chinese tycoons. His jealousy of Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore’s success has led him to bash Singapore to the extend that he is willing to waste public funds on a crooked bridge against Singapore’s interest, in fact also against the interest of Malaysians. He has not admitted that the political fiascos in Malaysia are due to his own wrong decisions. Mahathir is not an honourable person as he changes his story to his personal benefit.

  40. #40 by All For The Road on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 11:30 pm

    The electorate in Bukit Gantang has spoken. It is the people’s power that sent Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin to a convincing and deserving victory! The triumph shows that Tun M is no more revelant in present-day Malaysian politics! He has no more influence over the common rakyat!

    Congratulations to Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar! You are a people’s hero. You will always be!

  41. #41 by lofuji on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 11:39 pm

    Madhatter destroys everything in his path.During his 22 yrs as PM, he destroy KU LI, MUsa Hitam,Anwar I and last but not least AAB.
    Najib should know beta than to engage him to assist in the Bi-elections oops, it should be Bye2-elections for Umno.

    Hello PR, goodbye BN.

    Ha HaHaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

  42. #42 by jt84 on Tuesday, 7 April 2009 - 11:52 pm

    Uncle Kit,

    Its truly an amazing day, that the People of Perak want PR to continue as the State Government. Dissolve the State Assembly and call for fresh state wide election. The legitimacy to govern of the current State Government (BN) are seriously in doubt by the people. Only 45% of the total votes combined in the three by-elections voted for BN.


    Check out the latest statistical analysis of the Malaysian political atmosphere at http://joshblogspace.blogspot.com with the offical tally of the three by-elections. Quite interesting…

  43. #43 by kerishamuddinitis on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 - 12:43 am

    Hence forth, this is Bukit Gantung for me. Twarted the courts but HUNG by the RAKYAT!

  44. #44 by voice on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 - 12:46 am

    YB Kit, this is urgent, the people are in danger in Bukit Gantang, especially chinese area, my friend was going home from Taman Kaya to Taman Sungai Mas, by motorcycle, on half way he was blocked by a gang of indian and they asked who he voted for, he then answered he didn’t vote, although he voted, luckily there’s a police patrol car nearby and the indian ran away, I hope this issue can be resolved.

  45. #45 by kerishamuddinitis on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 - 1:26 am

    Any chance the Indian was Semi Value? He is in for the 11th term, did jackshit for Indians, crushed all opposition within the party, insisted everyone vote for him… and the police seized Kugan’s UMMC post-mortem records.

  46. #46 by wvee on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 - 1:39 am

    Congratulations Nizar! PR has done it again!!! A referendum to NAJIB – !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WE WANT A FRESH POLL IN PERAK ASSEMBLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  47. #47 by boh-liao on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 - 2:40 am

    What lah, not enuf Chinese votes for the BN candidate.

    Next time, Ahmad Zahid has to arrange for bogel dancers, not scantily dressed dancers, to do more vote-catching spicy hot Mongolian dances during any buy election. Obviously, Zahid has still a lot to learn about Chinese non-halal culture.

    Well, at least MMK’s last minute campaigning efforts did achieve the intended goal: to get his precious son a cabinet post. Thank you papa, said the topless son, who is already eyeing the top post under the new prediction of his father’s name: Mxxxxx.

    Sarawak is still business as usual and the Taib tribe can continue to laugh their way to the bank. Gila sapu semua!

  48. #48 by Godfather on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 - 2:58 am

    Will this result move the royalty to do the right thing ?

  49. #49 by localgrad on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 - 9:24 am

    aha… waiting to see big head ong and semi value’s pet pet being whipped by thier master UMNO… VELI HAPPY BOUT TAT!

    wat for i need a biz partner tat couldnt deliver sales/result.

    najiis, pls do us a favour, just throw them into rubbish bin

  50. #50 by ctc537 on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 - 12:29 pm

    The results of the by-elections show that the people have no renewed hope even though the country has had a change of leadership. The BN/UMNO government never learn. People, irrespective of race, want the government to give them equal treatment. Without taking this basic human needs into consideration, the BN deserves to lose.

  51. #51 by ReformMalaysia on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 - 12:52 pm

    The winning of Bukit Gantang by PR sending loud and clear signal to Barisan Nasional that its illegal( frogs) government does not have the blessing of the ‘real king-the people’.

  52. #52 by boh-liao on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 - 1:49 pm

    No problem lah. Can easily engineer a U turn that favors the BN by sending more people to Kamunting. More space now.

  53. #53 by ekans on Wednesday, 8 April 2009 - 2:50 pm

    The best part was to see Zambry’s dejected look on his face on live TV1 last night as he silently sat beside UMNO’s deputy president who was giving comments about BN’s by-election defeat at Bukit Gantang.

    It’s now obvious that Nizar has the people’s mandate, whether as the MB of Perak, or as the MP of Bukit Gantang…
