PAS candidate Abdul Wahit Endut wins with a majority of 2,631 votes, getting 32,883 votes to BN’s Datuk Wan Ahmad Farid Wan Salleh’s 30,252 in the just-concluded Kuala Terengganu by-election.
Independent candidate Azharuddin Mamat @ Adam received 192 votes and lost his deposit.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said BN accepted the decision made by voters.
He said the results show that democracy is still very much alive in Malaysia.
Had PAS and Pakatan-Rakyat lost in the by-election, I believe 1,001 accusations will be hurled against the government.
As usual, rigging, phantom voters, money politics, threats by the government etc etc will surface if BN had won in the by-election.
Even during the 11-day campaigning period, many allegations and finger pointing were made by PR, especially PAS, against BN. The funny thing is that none of the allegations appeared to be factual.
Even the Election Commission and police were not spared from their denunciation.
It is time that BN adopt a more offensive style and approach in its campaign as the defensive method of fighting a war is deemed obsolete, outdated and no longer effective.
In a real modern war, you have to attack your enemies and destroy their capabilities and infrastructures before you move your soldiers and artillery into combat zones.
The Gaza War is a lucid example of how successful the Zionist Regime attack and destroy Hamas’ capabilities and logistics.
However, hats off to Najib for being a gentleman in accepting BN’s defeat. We hope this will be PR’s last victory in its war against BN.
