SIBU: DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang is making a joke when he said Wong Ho Leng needs a political miracle to win the Sibu parliamentary by-election.
It is not DAP that needs the miracle but it is SUPP.
Thus, to say that chances of DAP to win the seat is at 40% is wrong.
The correct ratio is DAP has 60% and SUPP has 40%.
And the independent candidate Narawi Haron is the kingpin.
Although SUPP has brought many developments in Sibu, by and large the Chinese community is still not happy with the party.
It is very difficult to say for sure what are the reasons but one thing for sure that many NGOs, which were with SUPP, are now sharing the same bed with DAP.
The Chinese's NGOs play a very important part in getting votes from the community. The side which gets their supports, will get the supports from the Chinese community.
In the last election, SUPP managed to gather 19, 138 votes while Ho Leng only got 15,903 votes.
This by-election, however, could see a better fortune for DAP.
Good Luck DAP !!!
A piece of advice to the son in-law of a former premier, Khairy Jamaluddin, don't talk big because Sibu is not a town in Semenanjung.
Or you will be embarrassed.
