  • If there is by election in BATU, rest assured that Barisan will thrash Pakatan again, even if Tian Chua or Rafizi stands.

  • Politics is an ugly business and PKR has been known to make wrong political moves in the past. In this case it's about what the Batu constituents want, not what the party wants. Remember the R in PKR stands for rakyat after all. And the party infighters should never fail to remember the rakyat in all of this.

  • PKR must do something quickly and find justice to the people. The anger is looming and soon people will look for alternatives.

  • Praba - resign from PKR. Become an Independent. If only to flush out who the uglies are in PKR behind this

  • For the longest time PKR has 1 sympathy seat in Wan Azizah even though they think they are "taiko" by demanding the lion's share of the seats every election... then the rakyat got fed-up enough to vote in the then opposition... however, winning made them arrogant & gave them delusions of grandeur, as though they have the rakyat eating out of their hands... as their world fall apart in a mere 18 months, they are still living in delusion fighting over what they believe they are entitled to.

  • This is an unnecessary distraction. The last thing PH needs now is another by-election. The batu api behind the 'step down' claim should patiently wait for the next GE to stake their claim. Until then please disappear and let the present MP perform his duties unhindered.
