Mr K, i like your opinian but i would like to add regarding nizar being a DAP member, i dont think he will quit pas and joint DAP eventhough he is a half chinese. the thing is a a bukit gantang people who will vote in this coming election, i did not see why i should vote to nizar. 1.he is an outsider who did not know anything about bukit gantang as ismail saffian 2. if he become MP he did not have time for malay voter eversince the non malays vote him last time and too bad this is… Read more »

spin,spinners.I am from Perak.I am at the ground.I felt the pulse of the grassroots.The truth will always be the TRUTH and we just have to wait for the judgement day of our debate.7th april 2009.wait patiently.See WHO was the fools of all fools.

My analysis of BG b-election: The allure of Nizar for many non Muslims is his pliablility to the machinations of the Tok Dalangs of the Ngeh And Nga Partners (NAP), a corporation sometimes (albeit mistakenly) refered as DAP Perak. The state of matters in Perak’s ex-state govt can be likened to a boy band. Those business and marketing folks know they need a couple of pretty and young boys who are not terribly smart, obedient and completely talentless as the front to mime the songs… Ngeh/Nga (NAP)knows that they can never be the MB so they needed someone who is… Read more »

Something to ponder on…even PAS itself is divided over Nizar…read on Bukankah Nik Aziz menyatakan bahawa dia adalah nakhoda dalam PAS?. Oleh itu, mengapa tidak jemput Nik Aziz untuk umumkan calon di Bukit Gantang. Kenapa PAS Perak memanggil Haji Hadi untuk umumkan calon? Haji Hadi Awang mengumumkan Nizar Jamaluddin sebagai calon PAS di Bukit Gantang, pada 23 Mac 2009 di padang Taman Kota Jaya, Simpang. Akhirnya Haji Hadi sendiri yang memilih Nizar. Siapa yang mula mencadangkan nama Nizar ini?. Pada 9 Februari 2009, Ngeh Koo Ham (Pengerusi DAP Perak), mencadangkan agar Nizar bertanding di kawasan parlimen Bukit Gantang. Awal-awal lagi… Read more »

Dear Anwar I agree with your points. Since I am an Indian, I would like to share the mood of Indians at Bkt Gantang and Bkt Selambau. Only a small group Indians belonging to PKR and DAP are backing Nizar, most Indians just hate PAS and PKR for the way Indians have been treated after they have supported PR in the last GE. The Indians are angry PR have done nothing to help them. So there is no way most Indians will support a PR candidate in Bkt Gantang or Bkr Selambau. As for the Chinese, I guess it will… Read more »

Hi Anwar March 23rd, 2009 10pm . If not the whole of Malaysia, then can u please explain the reason why BN suspend Harakah and Suara Keadilan so near the 3 by election. BN is always branded a coward.

I as a malaysian Chinese fully support PAS .

yes nizar want your vote.too bad u are from penang.next time your MP died, dont forget ask guan eng calonkan nizar.ok?happy?end of the story..

The previous winner was also from PAS where over 30% of the voters are non-Malays. Personally, I don’t believe race is going to be the main preoccupation with Malaysians as played by UMNO.
It’s more about getting food on the table, eradicating corruption, competency & transparency in governance and giving a future to our children.

what did people of bukit gantang get when sharom was a MP there?nothing?no project, no helping tenagers after school get a job, btw u cerita ni eradication of currupton, tranperency to all this kampung fellow they simply dont care…..bukit gantang are kubu kuat umno.

Anil, Someone named ‘K’ is undermining Perakians intelligence by saying Nizar is under control of DAP. Those pro-BN can play with this issue but I guess will back-fire. This is how I see as an outsider. ‘K’, don’t blame me later for not reminding you. NIZAR IS SURE TO WIN, NOT JUST A WIN, BUT OVERWHELMING WIN. Of course if my guess is not accurate. But, so far, my guesses were all ‘Chun’, as Chinese said or ‘Tepat’ as what my Malay friends taught me. ‘K’ makan cili, ‘K’ rasa pedas. what ever u say, people at bukit gantang majority… Read more »

K’,

My Malay friends from Perak just contacted me, their votes are to Nizar.

Perakians love Nizar…..this is a fact.

dont simple your friend call u and all people love nizar…

Nizar handling of the Perak Crisis is Exemplary and OUTSTANDING!
He did not WAVER even for a moment despite the onslaught of the whole BN dirty tactics.

Respect must also be given to the wisdom of the PAS Leadership to select such a Towering figure.

Wise Choice. Syabas to PR & PAS.
hahah this apply for chinese and indian only right.not for the malays.

Dear K, You ought to remember that B. Gantang is not a overwhelmingly Malay constituency. It is a mixed constituency, approximately in similar demographic distribution with the population mix of Peninsular Malaysia. If PR loses this one, it would mean that the majority of Malaysians are not in for a change and we have to accept the verdict and request the PR government to stop all court actions and let BN rule until the people decide again in the next GE. The previous winner was also from PAS where over 30% of the voters are non-Malays. Personally, I don’t believe… Read more »

I think the PR leaders has now started to believe their own spin and living in delusion that the people of Perak supports their illegal … ex-govt. As I had stated before Nizar’s choice really has given the BN camp a big boost. Had the candidate been someone else, it would have been tougher. But Nizar’s easy meat. I am sure the UMNO folks have already brain storming posters for the by-election. Nizar has been fatally compromised by his “running … of DAP” image. That Ngeh and Nga been directing Nizar on every policy and decisions is well known, however… Read more »

cilyhot,

Let us celebrate come this 7th April night at Anil’s blog, not only for Nizar’s victory, but also the other 2 bye-bye elections in Bkt Selambau & Batang Ai. Sorry, as an outsider, I don’t bother their names, I can only recognize Nizar. Anyway, whoever also never mind, so long as PR win. Worth celebration even I am not a Malaysian. They will be a victory for natural justice.

CONGRATULATIONS – NIZAR HAS WON THE RACE

Hamzah,
Then, Make sure that all the orang2 melayu know this. Ensure that UMNO fella lose his deposit

At first I thought Umno will field Zambry for Bkt Gantang, but….a small….

But, whoever the candidates, it is still a fight of ‘Perakians’ vs Zambry.

Hamzah, it is only natural for those pro-BN to think of ‘puppet’ in whatever circumstances as they are so used to being ‘puppeteers’ in Umno & ‘puppets’ in BeEnders.

Some people here are puppets, perhaps or puppeteers?

puppeteers makan cili, puppets rasa pedas

Dear Taipingite,

I can assure you YB Nizar is nobody puppet.

MSM can potray whatever they want, just go and talk to the man.

Rgds,

Yeah!. Nizar will be the rallying point. Kick the zombie! (in case you dont know a zombie is a living dead. A dead that cannot cross over and is destined to suffer for eternity)

Hi K.

No point attacking each other. I have state my case. I am a 4th generation Malaysian Chinese but I am still call a non-bumi. Still have to put ‘Chinese’ on all govt forms and I/C also put race ‘Chinese’. I really hope my children will one day be proud to have their I/C with race stated as ‘Malaysian’ as equal to their nationality.

Hi Ong Eu Soon.

I know you got a big car. I can go campaign with you. No problem. But I still prefer your powerpoint on vermicast.
