Defeated and Rejected Again!

August 7, 2018

The huff & puff about Christianity, Chinese & Communist has failed miserably … Apa lagi Lokman mahu?


The hopeful Lokman Notrelevant had zero chance to win but was clueless

The Sungai Kandis by-election was a straight fight between opposition Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Harapan ruling government. Unlike the May 9 nationwide election where there was a 3-corner fight, this by-election was supposed to be verification of the wild theory that a merger of UMNO and PAS would give birth to a very powerful party which will snatch back the federal government.

The results, however, painted a different picture. Pakatan Harapan retained the seat when its candidate Zawawi Ahmad Mughni emerged winner in the by-election with 15,427 votes giving him a  5,842 majority. His opponent Lokman Noor Adam from UMNO (Barisan Nasional) received 9,585 votes whilst independent candidate K. Murthy received 97 votes.

The state seat fell vacant after incumbent Mat Shuhaimi, who won the state seat with a 12,480-vote majority in the recent general election, passed away on July 2. He had obtained 23,998 votes against Barisan’s Kamaruzzaman Johari’s 11,518, PAS’ Mohd Yusof Abdullah (7,573) and Parti Rakyat Malaysia’s Hanafiah Husin (76).

Zawawi Ahmad Mughni easily won the by-election hands down

Lokman Noor Adam’s defeat was actually a great humiliation for UMNO and PAS that they could not win the seat, despite both parties joining forces. As expected, UMNO secretary-general Annuar Musa, one of many empty vessels, shamelessly claimed victory. He said – “It is a very encouraging start for us because the votes for Pakatan were reduced by about 12,000 or half of what it garnered in the 14th General Election.”

Mr. Annuar continued his babbling – “The people also showed their protest (against Pakatan) through the 9,583 votes given to Barisan Nasional (BN). To us, it is victory as we succeeded in preventing Pakatan from obtaining the 10,000 vote majority they had targeted.” Was Annuar Musa smoking the same grass which Najib’s wife Rosmah made from her secret recipe?

This is the classic example of UMNO culture of “bodoh sombong (stupid yet arrogant). Only 49.4 % of the constituency’s 50,800 turned out to cast their votes this time around – a historical low. Of course, Pakatan would not get back the same 23,998 votes during the May 9 general election, let alone the same 12,480-vote majority.

Three months ago, it was a 85% turnout (46,165 voters) but over the weekend it was merely 49.4% (25,109 voters). Theoretically, UMNO candidate Lokman Adam should instead get 19,091 votes – being the combined votes which UMNO and PAS candidates secured three months ago. That would mean Mr. Lokman should have won the Sungai Kandis state seat easily.

Another reason loudly touted why Lokman should have won was that opposition UMNO and PAS supporters were supposedly very angry, anxious and motivated for a victory after the electrifying campaign based on 3R (race, religion and royalty). Tajuddin Rahman, one of UMNO warlords, had urged voters – 72% of them Malay-Muslims – to reject a “Christian-led” Pakatan Harapan government during his campaigning.

Mr. Tajuddin bitched – “Look at our ministers now – Lim Guan Eng is Christian, Anthony Loke is Christian, Tony Pua is Christian, Hannah Yeoh is Christian. Teresa Kok is also Christian. (Federal Territories Minister) Khalid Samad gets angry when I say her name; she is the only woman who has a c*ck’.” Yes, not only did Tajuddin spew hatred against Christianity, he was also a pervert.

In reality, only Hannah Yeoh and Theresa Kok are Christians. After spreading FAKE news that the entire Malaysian Chinese were Christians, Tajuddin, with support from UMNO, made a carpet accusation that all the Chinese were anti-monarchy. He said – “They want to establish a system of government like Singapore where there is no king, no sultan and no Agong (King).”

Barisan Nasional, now the opposition, had even spread FAKE news in social media claiming that DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang was born in China and migrated to Malaysia in 1957 at the age of 17 to support Malaya Communist Party leader Chin Peng. Mr. Lim was actually born in Batu Pahat, Johor in 1941 when the country was still known as Malaya and under British rule.

Both UMNO warlords – candidate Lokman Adam and Tajuddin Rahman – had practically thrown everything, including the kitchen sink, at Pakatan Harapan during the entire 14 days of campaigning. They huffed and puffed about Malays, Islam and Royalty losing power and dignity. Yet, they failed to influence the 72% Malays to come out in droves and teach Mahathir administration a lesson.

To save face after the defeat, Mr. Annuar Musa claimed that the Barisan campaign in Sungai Kandis had been moderate with UMNO President Ahmad Zahid Hamidi hardly giving any “ceramah” compared with Pakatan leaders. Was he saying that had Mr. Zahid personally campaigned, the result would have been different and UMNO would have snatched the seat? Then why didn’t the UMNO president do his job?!

The real reason why Zahid was a pussy hiding in the closet instead of helping his boy was because even the UMNO President wasn’t optimistic about winning. Whereas Pakatan was confident about winning and didn’t even bother to bring out its big guns such as DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang or PM Mahathir Mohamad. Had both leaders been mobilized, the majority would  most likely had been boosted. But why kill a fly with a cannonball?

Barisan, on the other hand, had unleashed its super heavyweight ex-PM Najib Razak, who had been campaigning almost daily. Heck, even at the eleventh hour on polling day, Najib desperately took to Facebook to beg voters to give BN a chance, ignoring Section 26(1)(a) and (f) of the Election Offences Act which stipulates that no campaigning is allowed on polling day.

UMNO’s brother, PAS, had also urged its supporters to vote for the Barisan Nasional candidate. The astounding failure to mobilize the same 19,091 supporters they did just 3 months ago spoke volumes about the rejection of the partnership between UMNO Malay Nationalist Party and PAS Islamic Party. Yes, even their die-hard supporters were disgusted, disillusioned and rejected the ‘marriage’.

So, where was Najib’s buddy and close brother PAS President Hadi Awang? In the name of Muslim brotherhood and Islam dignity, should not “Holy Man” Hadi had helped Najib even though UMNO can no longer pay RM90 million in bribe to PAS? Perhaps PAS finally realized that without access to the gravy train like what UMNO used to have before, UMNO now have absolutely no money to buy votes anymore. Truth is ‘Cash is King’ is broke, and UMNO was spurned by PAS like a money-faced sweetheart thumbing her nose at her penniless sugar-daddy!

If an UMNO-PAS partnership cannot even capture a constituency with 72% Malay-Muslims, despite stirring up rabid racial sentiments among the Malays until kingdom come, chances are it’s GAME OVER for UMNO and PAS. More importantly, it convincingly debunked the shiok sendiri(self-indulgence) perception that UMNO and PAS together is a mighty force if they join forces.

Recently, even Straits Times Singapore appeared to suggest that the defeated Barisan Nasional coalition government could rise again and make a political comeback. The argument was that only between 25-30% of ethnic-Malay voted for the new Pakatan Harapan coalition government.

The Singapore mouthpiece, quoting figures from Merdeka Center, said 35-40% of Malays voted for Barisan Nasional (BN) while 30-33% supported PAS (Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party). Therefore, a marriage between BN and PAS would have a secure  65-73% Malay votebank.

Sadly, this thingy at tiny red dot down South still hasn’t figured out that PAS’ strength is only confined to Kelantan and Terengganu.

The UMNO’s defeat is so pathetic and humiliating that they could not even retain the 11,518 votes the party had secured 3 months ago, let alone try to seduce the extra 7,573 voters from PAS.

It appears a majority of the Malays in Sungai Kandis hate Najib Razak and UMNO more than the (FAKE) threat from Christianity, Chinese and Communist. And they certainly know PAS is corrupt.
