Good luck to Dr Mansor. Yet to know who is UMNO’s candidate. Anyway, Penang needs a capable DCM to see it through the present economic glooms. Dr Mansor is the right man to work with Dr Ramasamy and Mr Lim – a great combination. Good news that ‘hardcore’ poor does not exist anymore in Penang. It took less than a year for the new governmnet to handle this problem. We need more leaders like Lim Eng Guan at the helm. He is a selfless man who works for the people.


Penanti is already in PR’s pocket. It’s quite difficult for BN to get a candidate to match the calibre of Mansor. By the way, over 90 percent of Perakians cannot accept Zambry as their MB. They are adamant that Nizar is their choice. The people want a fresh election to decide once and for all who rules Perak. The best option for BN now is to dissolve the asembly and call for a fresh election. This is ultimate democracy.


Why wasn’t Mansor Othman selected to stand for PKR in GE-12? Can anyone care to enlighten me on this?


Yes, an educated man indeed. He is the right person to be DCM of Penang. PKR has its candidate. See who BN will pick.

Do please, the people of Malaysia will provide you with the necessary steam, you just ride to battle and… Read more »
