If Permatang Pauh was billed as the mother of all by-elections, Kuala Terengganu can perhaps be billed as the grandmother of all by-elections.
The outcome of this by-election is more important than any by-elections Malaysia ever had, perhaps in the history of Malaysia since 1957.
We cannot allowed Barisan Nasional (read: UMNO) to win this by-election simply because of Najib Razak, he is scheduled to take over the helm comes March 2009 and by giving PAS a crushing vistory, this will somehow put a dent or 2 into Najib Razak's reputation, the people of Kuala Terengganu must prove that he is a failure and people do not want him to be a prime minister, let's send out the loudest message possible.
Besides the valid reason mentioned above, we must also not let UMNO to puzzle back their cracks together. Without a doubt UMNO is in a mess now, let them messed up further with their lost in Kuala Terengganu, let them continue with their the internal fights with their lost in Kuala Terengganu and let their up and coming general assembly be a futile one. It's time to really put an end to whatever they are doing and let the raping of the people and robbing from the people stops, in Kuala Terengganu.
On the other hand, PAS must win it for the government-in-waiting, Pakatan Rakyat. I believe the wind of change from 8th March 2008 which blew 'changes' to the entire country will continue to blow in Kuala Terengganu, like how it did in Permatang Pauh.
The Pakatan Rakyat must continue to work as hard as possible for the next 2 weeks or so to ensure that the mouths from UMNO will be shut on 17th January 2009 night and tell them that, "Look, we did not receive the crushing victory in Permatang Pauh because that was Anwar Ibrahim's 'homeground' and we had the advantage, etc.. We did it again in Kuala Terengganu which is a level playing ground and we received this crushing majority is purely because the people wanted change and changes for the better for all".
PAS to win by 2,500 in Kuala Terengganu, anyone?.
