UMNO scores a hatrick
Posted on April 7, 2009
Three straight lost in a row in Parliament by election for UMNO. After losing Permatang Pauh and Kuala Terengganu, the rakyat has given Najib his third eggs. He received the first two as campaign director for Barisan Nasional and the third as BN’s Chairperson.
It is also the first defeat for Mahathir Mohamed after enjoying so much supports from the opposition supporters during his exile period.
It looks like UMNO has become less popular now with Mahathir Mohamed returning to the party he created in late 80s.
Perhaps, it’s time for UMNO members to force Najib to fully use the space emptied by 13 inmates in Kamunting.
It is also perhaps time for the people to march to the Palace in Kuala Kangsar to show their undivided loyalty to the Sultan of Perak and to beg forgiveness for voting to outs the Sultan’s decision in a by election perceived as referendum on the Sultan’s decision.
Overall it is not a bad result for BN as they only lose 1-2 to the Pakatan Rakyat.
