UMNO won the Hulu Selangor by-election

Yes, the official results are out with BN 24997 PKR 23272 with a majority win of 1,725 votes to BN. Quite frankly, from the word "Go!", it was never a contest between BN and PKR. It was more like UMNO taking the stand instead of MIC. What's more with Najib hopping all over the place, it appeared as though he was the candidate and not Kamalanathan.

Still despite all the dirty tactics applied by UMNO and only to win by a small margin of 1,725 votes, I must say is real pathetic. Muhyiddin stressed that MIC must win by a 6,000 margin as this is the KPI for Kamalanathan. Well, he achieved far less than the target given to him. In a corporate appraisal, Kamalanathan's performance must be rated as "Very Poor".

Although UMNO drew first blood in its slandering campaign against Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, he and the rest of Pakatan Rakyat leaders were better people not to retaliate with the same MO. They stood the course and to be able to gardner a respectable 23,272 votes is a remarkable feat indeed.

To Pakatan Rakyat, you may have lost the battle, but you have not lost the war. Remember Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim and Ijok. He lost the Ijok state seat in a by election but won it back in the 12GE.

We salute all those who participated one way or other to make this event a memorable one. Now if UMNO does not deliver, the people who voted for Kamal deserves the MP they voted in.

Good night!
