Lulu has always thought that the fastest way an assemblyman can bring progress to his constituency is to die while in office.
It's amazing, those by-election effort to please the voters.
Road are suddenly paved
People who have been squatters are immediately given TOL
Sudden influx of investment
[lulu not enough sleep, so, these are the immediate ones lulu can think of]
The goody bag which comes with these by-elections are simply amazing!
So, guess it's a sad-sad day for the Batu Talam constituency today.
No one is interested in their area.
To be fair to the opposition, Lulu doesn't think they're chickening out. PAS may have lost by 2,7+ votes the last round, but in the election before that, the majority was only 751. There is a fighting chance, but they've decided to stay out as they have concerns over the electoral votes and the abuse of postal votes.
With this in mind, the disbursement of the goody bag would most probably end.
And the 12,000 volunteers they were planning to send to Batu Talam to talk to the 10,000 voters? dunno? Go join Sharizat in Johor to help the flood victims?
gosh, it's now a free seat for UMNO. no need to worry about losing face if you lose the seat cos no one's contesting it.
Who is going to get this free seat?
Would the candidate list suddenly see a new inclusion, and they give the seat to the "poor" governing chap who is not in government?
afterall, the poor chap is already 30 and not in any official positions, whereas at this age, DPM was already a Menteri Besar.
