PAS candidate 55-year-old candidate Mohd Salleh polled 9,618 votes while BN's Mohd Rohaizat Othman, 38, garnered 5,067.Voter turnout had also decreased this time around to 73 percent. In the previous election, the turnout was 82.6 percent.
PAS actually maintained its share of the votes. In 2008 it was 66.39% and yesterday it was 65.5%, a drop of a mere 0.89%. That is less than 1%.
- The PAS leadership does some soul-searching to see if their actions of late have put off a segment of the rakyat who have voted for them.
Voted for them in the belief that PAS is part of the agenda for change, change for a fairer, more just, civil and democractic society.
Not a society based on their extremist interpretation of what is good for all Malaysians!!
- With this solid win , the rakyat hope the entire Pakatan Rakyat will work together instead of stabbing each another with racial and religion issues.
PAS , DAP and PKR must remember that it was the Malaysians from all walks of live voted you in.
It was NOT melayu who gave you the win, it was NOT the Chinese ,and definitely NOT the Indians who gave you the win.It was Malaysians who gave you the win.
THIS is also NOT a license to PAS to ban this and that.
We still want the beer, the 4Ds, the massage shops and karaoke.
I go to hell, it is MY problem. Don't worry about me .
Please use religion as a guiding principle and use religion as an example to teach and reach out to the masses.
And yes, congratulations to PR and PAS.
Please work together and discuss problems.
And congratulations to Umno for their consistency in losing.
