The calls were loud and clear amongst the Chinese community that they were very unhappy with the SUPP leadership and it was shown at the last parliamentary elections in Sibu. However,the government of the day and the SUPP top leadership and the grassroots have been working extremely hard to win back the support. A lot of good work has been put in by their leaders to put it right and their ears and eyes are very much on the ground now. DAP supporters have even boasted that this election might signal an end to the party of ‘towkays”
The Chinese community are watching the sandiwara played out by PKR/DAP.Azmin Ali Deputy president of PKR knows that when there is infighting amongst themselves they will stand not a ghosts of a chance against BN. Does he need to be reminded that he mentioned it at Grand Continental Hotel in Kuching. BN will not be over excited but will love that advantage on the menu.
It will not be known just yet as nomination day is on the 6th and BN especially SUPP will not want to have their pants caught undone and on fire. Are their strategists and scouts looking at the movements of DAP representatives being moved from one constituency to another? The DAP top boys are looking at safer seats than usual to pull through knowing very well SUPP have indeed done their homework. Two can play the same game but who will come on top depends on the parties involved. BN will quietly go on with their work and preparing their candidates for the nomination day.
As much as we want to write more this image sent to me by an upcoming Youth member incharge of publicity for the elections does show that the time is about right for SUPP. Many will still say..No way but always expect the unexpected in politics.
