The tweets were out “over 3000++ has sent shivers says a registered voter to audie61. This is the trend that will happen in the urban areas. A credible candidate is needed to defend the SUPP held seat of Stampin when Yong Khoon Seng gives way to a new face”
Yong knows the score and when to call it a day as he is already 71 years old and he has defended the seat for a record 5 times and he will want to have an unblemished record. He is “winnable” says his party comrades but it will not be easy to sway his decision and he has done enough for his successor to take the fight from him to the opposition be it DAP or PKR. Both are still tussling over the seat as negotiations are still deadlocked as informed by a spokesman of the Pakatan Sarawak group.
Yong knows that the three state seats – Batu Lintang, Kota Sentosa and Batu Kawah – which form Stampin parliamentary constituency are under opposition control. BN lost all these seats to PKR and DAP in last April’s state election.
The combined majorities obtained by the opposition in the three state seats were 13,748 votes, and the number of votes secured by them in the three seats was 33,268 votes (out of 85,798 votes)
A lot of hard work,planning and careful strategising needs to be done by BN in order that the opposition will not have a “BREAKTHROUGH” win in this parliamentary seat. (see below tables)
The BN component parties needs to seriously be seen together to maintain the seat or else it will be A WIN FOR PAKATAN AND A LOSS FOR BN.
MANY ARE SAYING SUPP DOESN’T STAND A CHANCE BUT SUPP MUST BELIEVE ITS NOT OVER TILL THE FAT LADY SINGS.
