The unofficial result had it that DSAI won the by-election by a landslide with a majority of 16,210 votes, surpassing that of Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail recorded on March 8 by 2,322 votes.
The astounding win gave a much-needed boost to PR in its pursuit for reform-driven developments for Malaysia.
The whopping majority has grave political implications for both BN and PR. To BN, the electorate made it explicitly clear that the long-time communal politics is not receptive to them anymore. This is especially far-reaching since the constituency is 64% Malay-majority. To PR, the voters gave a pat on the back to drive further for reform.
Lying in the immediate front is time for BN to ponder over its policies resulting in rakyat staying aloof from the Front.
