a bit more reliable reference : Jetsetting PM & DPM
Lulu's now wondering what the bill would be for the PM's jet travels between Aug 16-26.
Is this part of the "By-election will be costly" worries that Syed Hamid Albar is concerned over?
btw, Syed Hamid seems to be talking rubbish all over that article. Lulu knows, these BN politicians are prone to speaking rubbish, but it still surprises Lulu.
Syed Hamid said,
“If (former MP) Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail had said earlier that she was giving way to Anwar, then the voters may have decided differently then."
If Lulu remembers right, Dr Wan Azizah's voters have always known of this option all the way back from the 1st time she ran in the 1999 elections.
He also said,
“Maybe PAS can offer one of their seats instead to Anwar"
erhh... he seems to have confused Parlimentary elections with party elections. In Parlimentary elections, the people vote when the seat is vacated. In his [Syed Hamid's] party elections, though it is not the correct thing to do, the trend is to appoint your successor when you announce your intention to vacate, totally disregarding the member's right to vote.
How can PAS offer a seat to Anwar without running a "costly affair" by-election?
Langsung tidak masuk akal
