As the PAS supporters took to the streets of Kuala Terengganu with their victory parade, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was making preparation for his trip to Qatar.
I have to congratulate PAS for their victory. Their did one hell of a good job. The party workers were all over the Kuala Terengganu parliamentary constituency.
What differed them from BN (especially Umno party workers) was that, they manned their posts round the clock.
As for the BN, their booths were left unattended after 10 or 11pm. Last nite, on the eve of polling, some BN leaders and party workers were flocked together at the State Stadium over a 'Pentarama' program, which was closed to the Press.
We could hear singings and 'dancing-like things' from outside the stadium when the opposition workers were still busy wooing supporters. What were they doing inside the stadium that it had to shoo away journalists? Karaoke? Or 'Joget Lambak'?
In the end, the result was damaging, not only to Wan Farid who 'lost everything' but mostly to Umno president-elect Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. As for Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said, it was 1-down for him.
Again, congrats Wahid Endut for that thumping victory. To me, the win got nothing to do with Anwar Ibrahim or Pakatan Rakyat. PAS has its own strength.
PAS - 32,883
BN - 30,252
Bebas - 193
Majority - 2,636
Spoilt - 665
Farid, do you wanna know why you lost? Read my next posting in the morning. I just wanna have a cup of tea and a roti canai for the embarrasment...
