The opposition parties in Sarawak were formally consolidated yesterday in Sibu under the banner of PR Sarawak.
The twist of the event has now given rise to a two-front battle for P212 Sibu by-election. With the onset of this development, some bloody back-stabbing in the last General Election would be done without this time. To a certain ectent, the building up of this unifying force might jack up DAP's chance.
But, given the circumstances prevailing in Sarawak, a two-front call still sounds a bit aloof. A lot of Sarawakians, especially those in the rural areas, still hold themselves back when it comes to dancing to the tune of a two-front system.
P212 Sibu by-election is going to be the second time in Sarawak that sky-changing call is being put to test. The electorate in Sibu have to exercise a fair bit of mental work now!
