Hulu Selangor

LIVE discussion on this blog tomorrow from 4.00pm to 5.00pm

A Pas grassroots source tells me that he feels the odds in Hulu Selangor are 46:54 in the BN’s favour, with a margin of error of plus/minus 2 per cent. (I asked him how come his instincts are so precise!)

Another Pas source, an MP, who has campaigned in Hulu Selangor, concedes that Felda areas are proving “difficult to penetrate”. All the top guns will be descending there in the next couple of days. Najib, for instance, has reportedly distributed RM50,000 each to 100 Felda settlers and promised more money. (How blatant can you get! – and this was aired over television news at 8.00pm.)

Pas is stepping up the pace with a gruelling ceramah schedule tonight, working its way deep into the estates and kampungs of Hulu Selangor.

The party has lined up a total of 16 ceramahs tonight, according to a circular sent out.

Mat Sabu heads the cast of speakers in Hulu Bernam, which has seven Pas ceramahs in various kampungs and estates.

First it was Najib who was entering the fray. Then Mahathir. And now Rosmah.

Mahathir’s involvement in the Bukit Gantang by-election did not really help as Nizar coasted to victory. Neither did it help in Bukit Selambau.

I don’t know about you, but somehow I don’t think Rosmah campaigning for Kamalanathan is going to help the BN cause.

It might actually work in Zaid’s favour!

More seriously, what’s all this about? Has Santa come to town?

Just had a chat with a grassroots campaigner from Pas, who spent a couple of days in the outlying areas of Hulu Selangor.

He said Pakatan faces an uphill task in the remaining days of the campaign. At this point, he thinks Barisan has the edge among the kampung voters and, if things remain as they are, he feels the BN could clinch victory.
