2011 is shaping up to be a year full of elections: two or three by-elections, the Sarawak state election (could be in April) and perhaps a general election.
(MStar quoted the Election Commission chief as saying that the Merlimau (Melaka) state seat rep from Umno had passed away at 2.30pm. But at 4.29pm, the Malaysian Insider corrected its earlier twitter flash of his death as follows: “Merlimau rep Mohd Hidhir on life support, Malacca Umno confirms & denies EC report of his death.” Finally, just before 9.00pm another news flash reported that Umno had confirmed that the rep had passed away.)
What do you all think of Tenang? Anyway, this is Normala Sudirman, the Pakatan (Pas) candidate for the Tenang by-election….
So far 13 by-elections have been held, with the winning tally 8-5 in Pakatan’s favour.
