Hottie sweetie Clara Chooi of The Malaysian Insider wrote in BN will keep Sarawak by a hair’s breadth, say analysts:
Universiti Teknologi Mara Associate Professor Shaharudin Badaruddin agreed with his comrades saying that this was by far the most heated state contest he had ever witnessed.
He explained that in the previous two state polls in 2001 and 2006, voters had generally stayed in the comfort of their homes and went about their daily businesses instead of joining in the campaign festivities by attending political events.
The professor expressed awe at the vast changes describing it as a ‘strong undercurrent’ sweeping the state.
“It is quite remarkable to see how accepting these people are. I have seen lorries driven by Chinese displaying PAS flags.”
Above for my matey Vinnan - The foundation stone has been laid for a cohesive cooperation among Pakatan parties in Sarawak, especially between PAS and DAP.
It doesn’t mean it’ll be all smooth sailing for Pakatan from now on. Yes, there’ll still be troubled waters and turbulent wake ahead, but at least the seed of mutual support has been sown.
If these inchoate grounds for inter-party cooperation are fertilised with earnest efforts of goodwill and sincerity (which unfortunately was missing in the BN during the last 15 years), Pakatan may have a bright future in Sarawak.
