It was like a scene out from the book “THE EAGLE HAS LANDED” by Jack Higgins this morning in Sandakan airport. PKR Youth Chief Badrul Hisham Sharahin with a entourage of ‘tough’ looking youth and wanita was on the Air Asia flight AK5160 which arrived from Kuala Lumpur. Also in the group was PKR assembly for Perak’s Kuala Sepetang YB Tai Sing Ng. While the PKR group were on a “Everyone Can Fly” Air Asia flight which is more economical, Youth Chief Khairy Jamaluddin with a strong presence of UMNO youth arrived on a Malaysian Airlines flight MH2710 at Sandakan airport.
These reinforcements for both BN candidate PBS Datin Linda Tsen Thau Lin and PKR’s Ansari Abdullah will bring the campaign for the P.185 Batu Sapi by election in tothe final lap. With postal voting being done today, the three candidates including SAPP President Datuk Yong Teck Lee will be more intense for those who have not made up their mind.
Will the voters be attracted by the promises of more development? Or cry of a change on the road to Putrajaya? Or the power of a Sabah Autonomy? The pundits are confident of a more than 2,000 votes victory for BN.
All these will be answered on 4 November 2010.
