The Rakyat of Perak will have the chance to prove which MB do they actually want. Barisan National has been working hard and utilised all the dirty tricks they known but they can never go against God’s will.
In a change of event, Member of Parliament of Bukit Gantang passed away this morning paving way for a showdown between Pakatan Rakyat and Barisan Nasional.

Morgan and BN’s Abdul Azim Mohd Zabidi with a majority of 1,566 votes. Interestingly, the spoilt votes are 851 while the independence gather 872 votes.
Parliament Bukit Gantang consist of 3 State Assembly seats which one of them is Changkat Jering where the former Pakatan Rakyat Exco then charged with Corruption and Sex Scandal and then turn to Najib to become one of three independent Assemblyman whom loyal to BN.
Mohd. Osman Mohd Jailu won the Changkat Jering seat beating the challenger from BN Mat Isa Ismail with a majority of 1,102 votes.

It will be great if Pakatan Rakyat would nominate their MB Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin as the candidate for the coming by-election. This shall be most legitimate forum for Nizar to test whether the rakyat supports him or deserted him and bless the BN way of coup-de-ta.
