Tomorrow is the polling day of the Manek Urai by-election in Kelantan. It is a straight fight between UMNO and PAS.
The seat fell vacant following the death of PAS' Ismail Yaacob, a five term assemblyperson on May 22.
BN, especially UMNO, could not afford to loose anymore by-election. So Muhyiddin, Deputy Prime Minister and Najib's loyal deputy, offered a choice for the people of Manek Ulai: choose PAS to rot or choose UMNO for a new bridge to connect Manek Urai Baru and Manek Urai lama. "you must vote BN... and the bridge would be built day after the election" said Muhyiddin.
In this backwater constituency consisting 99.22% Malay, voters would not bite the "bribes" offered by the UMNO. And Muhyinddin thinks he owns the Treasury!
With glowing tributes by mainstream news media on Najib's 100 days in office, UMNO hopes it can wrestle back the seat from PAS
Fat hope, I guessed PAS would retain the seat.
