MANEK URAI At last the final official result of the Manek Urai by-election – PAS won with a very slim majority of 65 votes – PAS Abe Uji got 5,340 votes against Tuan Aziz 5,283. I was rather surprised not because PAS won or UMNO-BN lost but it’s the majority. I expected the majority to be between 1000-1500 votes. Not that I being a sore loser, in this case my expectation, but with such a slim victory surely something is not right. PAS and it’s PR partners should all sit down for some serious soul-searching session on what went wrong, and what contributed to the slim victory. PAS should be blamed for the poor result as they have been over harping on the ‘unity talk’ of late. I read a comment posted by a voter from Manek Urai who was not in favor of the ‘unity talk’, that he may as well vote for BN if that is the case. In the first place these voters don’t like UMNO-BN and now PAS wants to kowtow them. What the hack!

Anakdesa says what ever the so-called ‘unity talk’ is only UMNO’s ploy of ‘divide and rule’ tactic. They are damn good with this tactic works, but then again it all depends on the other party whether they are a fool or otherwise. This tactic was applied over and over again in Sabah with all the non-muslim bumiputra and the non-bumiputra population divided into smaller fractions with so many political parties to represent them. This has made Sabah it’s way into the Guinness Book of Record for having the most political parties in Malaysia, if not in the world.

Was it because the BN was clever in manipulating the situation or was it the Sabah so-called leaders who were actually damn STUPID. Or was the Sabah so-called leaders genius that they managed to convinced the central government to register and  accept their parties into BN, in return of position in the government where they can accumulate wealth?

Anakdesa has no political affiliation, so whoever had won in Manek Urai bears little significant to me. If I am a voter in Manek Urai, I’ll be choosing between the devil and the deep blue sea. However given no choice to choose as there are only UMNO-BN and PAS candidates, I would rather X-ed PAS. I’ve no lost love for UMNO-BN after what they have done to Sabah with it’s ‘divide-and-rule’ tactic and how they manipulated the PATI (pendatang asing tanpa izin), issuing them with I/Cs so that they can vote for BN. These have made the local lost their rights as Malaysian citizens in many aspects such as medical facilities, night-market business etc. Not to mention the increased in crimes – drugs, rapes, housebreaking, murder  etc. which was committed by these PATI.

As I’ve written in my earlier artical ( READ HERE ), UMNO-BN needs to change it’s leaders attitude who, many said are full of  CORRUPTIONCRONYISM, RACIST, FAVOURITISM AND ARROGANT attitudes. They need to change or will surely be changed in the next general election.

Coming back to Manek Urai by-election, PAS should understand that the ‘unity’ talk is actually a ‘divide-and-rule’ tactic of UMNO. They know very well that PR is growing each day and so the only way to break PR is by using this tactic thus creating suspicion among the members of PR. Ostensibly to unite the community, PAS members however believe Najib meant to weaken their party and to break it apart from its Pakatan partners PKR and DAP. If PAS believe this is so then why are they continuing talking about ‘unity talk’ with UMNO-BN? Is it true that Najib is willing to divide the community just for the sake of his political games and hold on to power?

Anakdesa says to PAS – don’t be a fool or being fooled!

Now lets analise the result of the by-election. Manek Urai is a really rural Malay heartland where most (99%) of it’s voters are Malays, yet the UMNO-BN was unable to capture the seat despite deploying enormous resources and promises such as bridge of votes. This is something that Datuk Seri Najib as the President of UMNO and BN should take cognizance of, he can’t win in a Malay heartland by-election, wonder what hope does he have in other mix-areas!

Or was the loses contributed by his Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin who stepped on the toes of the Manek Urai Malays when he  belittle Mohd Fauzi (PR candidate), a self-made trader with a thriving fish-wholesaling business. These might have hurt the Malays as most of these Malays voters are simple and friendly people. Then came the DPM from the urban, belittling and describing Mohd Fauzi as a mere fishmonger, a humble profession for most of Kelantanese rural folks. It is actually an insult to all fishmonger and fishermen. How could someone made a visit your house and say it is a bad habit to eat with your fingers when it is your culture. Isn’t that an insult to to your culture? Sometimes some people just don’t use their brain when they talk!

Or the promise of a bridge be built the very next day should they win the by-election. Isn’t this a very unrealistic promise. To build is of course realistic but to build it the very next day??? I just couldn’t believe this when I heard him said this in TV1. If those words were uttered by any man on the street, I might just smile and said “oh what the hell, what does he know about building a bridge” or maybe he was talking about building a wooden bridge with no proper architectural plan which needed a few months to draw. But when it came from the number 2 man-in-command, no dictionary can describe my astonishment.  Only a fool would believe that can happen. If you say to demolish Petronas Twin Tower the next day, I would incline to believe as that is possible with thousands kilos of C4 placed all round the building structure! After that with just a push of a button,  Petronas Twin Tower will vanish in the thin air.

This is the kind of empty/unrealistic promises especially made during election 0r by-election time just to buy votes and these are the kind of leaders we have in Malaysia! Ahhh… by the way, isn’t this corruption? No I presume as the words came from the people that walk the corridor of power BUT yes if it came from the mouth of the opposition.

Anyway, with a 65 majority, a win is still a win! RIGHT? SO WHAT!
