Fairus Pakatan's Sacrifical Lamb ?

Hantu Laut

Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak was right when he said there was no need for a by-election for the Penanti state seat. Less than a year after the last general elections the nation had seen 5 by-elections.All won by Pakatan except Batang Ai in Sarawak. Maybe, Sabahans and Sarawakians were better campaigners than their counterparts in the Peninsula.


It is not the money spent on these by-elections that matters.It is the diversion that Anwar planned to eventually break down the BN as they will spend more time defending themselves rather than governing the nation.

The resignation of Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin was forced by Anwar Ibrahim to further his psychological war against the BN. Fairus has not been charged for corruption yet Anwar sees it fits to force him to resign.The statute 'that one is innocent until proven guilty' is not in his lexicon because he has other more important political agenda. Fairus was the ultimate sacrificial lamb. Was the letter of resignation signed recently or was it signed before the March 2008 General Elections?


To maintain his popularity with the people Anwar needs to call for by-election every now and than to remind the people that Pakatan Rakyat is a force to be reckoned with and to re-assure himself that the people are still supporting him and PR. His alter ego necessitates him to take this course of action to keep the momentum of Pakatan popularity going and the road to Putrajaya on track.It is also his ways of keeping the coalition cohesive and intact until the next general elections.

Was it a question of integrity or mere hyperbolic rhetoric to capture the imagination of his supporters that PKR and Pakatan are the people's choice of a clean government? Was Anwar squeaky clean when he was in UMNO ? A question not many of PR supporters would want to know or care about. To them Anwar is infallible and of unquestionable integrity and all of BN leaders are corrupted and rotten to the core.A browse through Malaysian blogosphere would show how impressively loyal, to a fault, the majority of Pakatan supporters were to the Anwar's cause.A gullible lot may not be a far off remark and Pakatan will continue to win by-elections in Pakatan stronghold and denigrate the BN to the gutter by the support of this maddening lot.

Cleaning up the mess will not be easy for Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak unless he has some magic formula.


For a start, as envisaged by Najib, the BN should not contest the Penanti by-election or for that matter any by-election that came from Pakatan stronghold.It should only concentrate to defend those that came from its own constituency.The loss of Kuala Trengganu should not be repeated elsewhere.

It's high time the BN stop giving undue attention to Pakatan and concentrates in regaining its credibility and tackle the economic crisis.

Yes, Fairus is the sacrificial lamb offered to appeased the Hantu and Puaka who is running rampant in the Malaysian govt ( hantu and puaka will only except their own kind as sacrifice). It is also to appease you, Hantu laut so that you will not plague the internet with your cursed mouth. But I'm afraid it will not be enough cos all the hantu and puaka will only be satisfied with robbing and plundering the govt coffers.... That's only to show that all the hantu and puaka ( present company included) are a curse to Malaysia...Only an exorcism by the PR (by taking over the govt) will lift the curse over Malaysia and Malaysia will be rid of all the hantus and puaka....

Hamba,

You need to learn how to debate opposing opinion with decorum not by name calling.Otherwise, people might think you are just plain stupid, incapable of intelligent argument.

Three of the five by-elections were caused by the death of the representative, hence constitutionally and morally unavoidable.
Please don't talk about "5" by-elections to bolster your point.

HL,

Suddenly they don't want to waste money & time?!
Hahahahahah!
Cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck...Chicken!
Mahatir was right the first time when he said Najib was a coward (or words to that effect).
I guess this testicularlly challenged PM should get a dose of courage from his wife!
He can only fool the mentally challenged UMNO supporters, the rest of us have more "grey matter" than that!
Hahahahahhaha!

I think there's something astute in BN not contesting... for all the reasons HL has outlined.
It's a bit like taking the wind out of their sails.
If it's David (PKR) and Goliath (BN),
and Goliath chooses not to play then victory isn't so sweet.
If I were the PM, I'd let them cluck "chicken!"

And another thing, if an (or many) independent candidate/s appear, then there will be a contest. Analysis of voter turnout, margin of victory for the incumbent party will still be quite interesting. And telling.
My two cents worth.
