The Kedah MB has just confirmed that V Arumugam of PKR has quit as Exco member and Bukit Selambau assemblyman. This paves the way for a second by-election at the state level, following the by-election for the parliamentary seat of Bukit Gantang which has to be called following the death of PAS MP Roslan Shaharum.
The two by-elections, coming in the wake of the Perak political changeover, will be an interesting test for Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat.
Everyone is feeling the heat, and there is just no let-up in the soaring political temperature in the country. There is even an eclipse of the moon tonight.
