The three by-elections at Bukit Selambau, Batang Ai and Bukit Gantang may be indicators of sorts. If the BN wins at all three, then this will be seen as an endorsement of the new BN chief – Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak. Also, it may mean that people are losing confidence in the Pakatan.
On the other hand, a win by Pakatan may mean that they are still cross with BN and they want BN to continue with its promised reforms before they give full support.
Either way, my sources seem to tell me that people are not really happy with the Pakatan (many of their promises never came through too) and still upset with BN. So what choice do they have except use the by-election to send across messages to the politicians?
