Kassim: Permatang Pauh result showed rejection

Kota Kinabalu, August 27, 2008: The result of the recent Permatang Pauh by-election 2008, is a testimony that the people including BN and UMNO members are rejecting BN administration.

Party Keadilan's Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim garnered 31,195 votes while BN 15,524 votes, giving a majority of 15,671 votes.

Although BN's total membership in Permatang Pauh is 26,942 ( UMNO ¡V 19,442, Gerakan ¡V 2,900, MCA ¡V 2,400, MIC ¡V 1,700, PPP ¡V 500 ) but BN managed to secure only 15,524 votes. This shows that a total of 11,271 BN members have opted to support Party Keadilan's Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

As Permatang Pauh is in the home state of the Prime Minister, the failure of BN in wresting Permatang Pauh from the opposition, is an expression of no-confidence on the Prime Minister's leadership.
