Bernama news reported the PM as saying that it was time for the Permatang Pauh electorate to give an opportunity to a local candidate who resided in the area to represent them in Parliament.
The logic it seems that to him "if the Permatang Pauh voters chose an outsider, the elected representative would not be able to understand what they want except for someone like (Datuk) Arif Shah (Omar Shah) who always resides here."
If this is the logic of a genius, then the PM has got a problem because he too does not reside at his constituency either! And so are many of the MPs who do not reside at their respective constituencies.
My sincerely apologies if I misinterprete.
