  • Its just as good as not contesting Takiyuddin. UMNO-BN will surely contest. Why in the GE 14 PAS would want to go for a 3-cornered fight and for the by election the rules have changed. Putar alam.

  • All eyes will be on the people in the EC closely monitoring their staff and bosses how they will conduct the polls. This is due to the disgraceful and negligent conduct shown in GE14 where voters within the voting compound were turned away even though they have been queuing for hours before 5pm. The rakyat is still unhappy and disappointed that the government has not announced any plan to revamp the personnel and procedures to obviate a repetition of EC's disgraceful execution of their duties during GE14. The government is put on notice to carry out reforms without delay in this matter or we will vote them out the next time around.

  • Now PAS admitted they are vote spoiler... only aim to split vote on GE14.... ingatkan orang dah lupa apa yang mereka cakap last election... putar belit cakap... but memang lumrah bagi pas.
