Pakatan Won The Battle But Losing The War
PAS - 5348
The 2000 majority arrogantly predicted by PAS and Pakatan is now an embarrassment of the first order. As far as PAS and Pakatan are concerned they won the battle but is losing the war.PAS barely scrape through, it won by the skin of its teeth.A 65 votes majority in its so-called impregnable stronghold was a disaster.It's a moral victory for BN and a booster for Najib's leadership.
Read this most ridiculous of statement in Malaysian Insider "Tonight’s results will help strengthen Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat’s position in the Islamist party against rival factions who are keen on working more closely with Umno" The full story here.
Instead, it should read "Tonight's results is a slap in Nik Aziz's face that the voters have shown their unhappiness against Nik Aziz's stance of the unity talk with UMNO"
Those in PAS who espoused unity talk with UMNO will have a field day.
As I have said in my earlier post, narrowing the gap, is a reflection of the growing support for Najib's leadership.
