Kuala Terengganu votesPosted: January 17, 2009
Today is the day that Kuala Terengganu voters will be going out to cast their vote for the second time within the time-frame of one year.
During the last elections, the Barisan candidate won by a slim majority of 600+. I say slim, considering that the total number of registered voters amount to more than 80,ooo. That makes out to only a 0.7% majority. Stats can be found HERE.
I don’t do political analysis very well, and not being there only adds to my incompetency of writing much about what I think it’s going to turn out like.
Simply said, I have no idea what the results tonight will turn out to be like.
Is the so-called “Chinese swing” as important as some make it out to be? Will the so-called “Malay votes” be split 50-50?
I’ll be waiting up tonight to catch the final results before ending my day. And though I have no idea what the general vibe is like all the way back in Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia, I’m hoping to see PAS win the seat this time, and with a higher majority than just 0.7%.
