Two by-elections only? Mark my word. A third one is coming up when the judgement reserved on Pensiangan will be delivered 16 Mar. There is nothing to stop the EC from slating in the Pensiangan by-election on 7 April. More by-elections this time in UMNO/BN constituencies as well as those of the defectors will come up due to divine intervention as clearly UMNO and Najib want to frustrate the will of the people in Perak. UMNO and Najib will lose all the by-elections and this will be the beginning of their downfall.

lets have more by-elections later on. it will be good for the aspirants and their respective parties.

SPR will have to fork out more money to finance its election gears.

in 2 or 3 years from now, there will meaningless to call for general elections as most of the seats were already contested in by-elections.

The frustations of the people is like an inflated balloon. Everytime the people are bullied by the governing authorities, the balloon gets bigger, and the pressure builds up even more. In Malaysia, that balloon is getting to be quite big and the pressure almost at an explosive point. But the governing authorities show no sign of letting up, as it keeps inflating it with more abuses. When the balloon finally explodes, the consquences will be great, and we do not quite know what the outcome will be, except that the "New Malaysia" will be very different from what it is today, for better or for worse. UMNO shows no sign of reforming, but is instead headed towards a state of extreme negativity in many senses, especially corruption and fascism. The opposition is gaining strength, fueled by the people's frustration with the current government led by UMNO. It is headed for a violent confrontation. BN is now essentially equated to UMNO. Their allies like MCA,MIC,PPP are all getting to be quite irrelevant. They are unable to play a meaningful role in the BN coalition, except to just follow orders. The country is headed towards the abyss. The RAHMAN prophecy looks like it will be fulfilled with the "N" as the last PM. After that it is .....(frightens me to think of it...our grand children may be working as maids oversea !! )
