Absolutely the right pick!!! It is official now!
Dato' Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin has been officially announced the candidate for Bukit Gantang (P059) by-election in Perak Malaysia late evening of Mar 23.
Nizar has been the hero since the political coup orchestrated by Najib to oust his government and install a backdoor BN Chief Minister (Mentri Besar), while majority of the rakyat continue to regard Nizar as the legitimate, democratically elected MB of Perak.
Come April 7 on the polling day, PAS and its alliance DAP and PKR hope to win the seat with a very much greater majority to prove that people in Perak are disgusted with the unconstitutional and undemocratic power grab by the corrupt UMNO-BN.
At the same time, news had widely reported that UMNO-BN began to tighthen its control with highhanded tactics and clampdown on the oppositions, including suspending PAS/PKR publication licenses abruptly, force disperse the crowd with water cannon and tear gas in Bukit Selambau on Mar 23 night, and barricade to block Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim's fleet from entering to attend a gathering at Bukit Gantang on Mar 25. All these dirty tactics, add to the unfair advantages the desperate UMNO-BN enjoys, to hopefully highten BN's chances of winning in the 3 by-elections.
Pakatan Rakyat is doing all it can to campaign agressively in Bukit Ganatang. PAS, DAP, and PKR mobilise its members, walking right into the rural areas to disseminate the truth, and presenting PR's achievements in the past 11 months as Perak state government. Making it a referendum though there are risks involved.
To Dato' Seri Nizar, all the BEST!
Wishing Pakatan Rakyat an “overwhelming victory!”
