Sunday Kopitiam - Beijing Games And Permatang Pauh By-Election

This rest day is thrown in with Lee Chong Wei vying for gold medal in the badminton final comimg up tonight in Beijing and the boisterous supporters on the nomination day of Permatang Pauh by-election.

I have to balance my mind to keep a clear track of both. Chong Wei is poised to smash tonight to bag the hopeful first gold medal back in 52 years. This thriller keeps the whole nation in a state of frenzy!

Permatang Pauh by-election is a tough test for both BN and PR. The polling day on August 26 will be their first encounter after the political tsunami on March 8, with DSAI standing offensive against Arif Shah, a BN's hopeful defender. Hanafi Hamat is just a stirrer with ulterior motives.

In a loose sense, PP by-election is a referendum on PR in its ambitious takeover of power plan. If the majority in favour of PR drops substantially, it might impose a setback on PR. BN would likely to take it to mean that the PR's reformation drive is getting less receptive now by the rakyat.

In terms of morale, a slash in majority would be a boost to BN and a dent on PR.

On the run-up to the polling day, BN would definitely be on an all-out effort to chip off Anwar's votes.

As the air gets tense with heated campaign, the pulses of the rakyat are wildly stirred!
