By-Elections “Bookie Odds…?”

Both these byelections have turned the bookies world into a frenzy.P185 had BN giving a headstart of 2000 votes earlier winning only 90 cents and now it hass dropped drastically to BN giving 500 (95 cents either way). What has happened? Many issues have been brought up and it seems the tables are turning towards a marginal win for BN or SAPP.

Over in Kelantan the euphoria of winning the Malaysia Cup for the first time in the States history has not affected the odds with PAS giving a headstart ot BN of 500 votes losing 85 cents. The football team has done the state proud and now the people of Kelantan will focus their minds on who will be the representative of N45. PAS holds 38 out of the 45 State seats while BN holds 6 with PKR 1 seat. The latest odds for Kelantan is PAS 500 votes headstart winning 80 cents.

Its anyone’s guess at the moment and the bookies odds are determined also by groundfeedbacks from various sources. Polling day is 4th of November and there is still time to ensure a shift for votes.  


Kickdefella “Calon BN N45 Galas..??”

Cindy of audie61 received a call from her former malaysiakini colleague,”Ada dengar tak,Calon BN N45 mungkin blogger. Tahu Siapa..?? Syed Azidi Syed Abdul Aziz ” Kickdefella blog” Ada juga nama2 lain yang di sebut. OK .

The name of Kickdefella  is enough to send reverberations up the spine of PAS as lately his posting has been very critical of PAS. He was once a a close associate of Kelantan PAS Deputy Commissioner II Husam Musa – had a much-publicised fallout with PAS last year. There are also other names which have been mentioned.

The lists of potential candidates and names started cropping up when it was reported that MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah who himself was expected to be fielded as the BN candidate, he, as the BN and Umno election director, was believed to be inclined to choose another candidate.

Thus besides Kickdefella the others in the running are Gua Musang Umno secretary Abdul Aziz Yusof Gua Musang Umno Youth vice-chief Zamzani Harun Gua Musang Wanita and Youth wings Wan Hazani Mohd Nor and Bazlan Baharuddin.

It will be interesting to see whether UMNO will choose a Blogger to represent them instead of practising from the traditional and normal political platform.
