Penanti : The Final Stroke!

The MalaysianInsider reports:

[PUTRAJAYA, April 27 — The Election Commission (EC) today finally set May 31 as polling day for the Penanti state by-election in Penang.

Nomination day is set for May 23.

The Penanti by-election is the sixth since the general election last year and was described by Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Razak as a waste of public funds and the Prime Minister had indicated that Barisan Nasional (BN) could skip the contest.

In the general election last March, Fairus defeated Permatang Pauh Umno division chief Datuk Abdul Jalil Majid by 2,219 votes.

In 2004, Jalil won the Penang state seat by 667 votes.]

Now, to contest or not to contest : the big question hanging on Najib's neck. Either way he will have very good excuses/reasons which fools like us will believe him. I bet he has not much choice but to contest.

Let it be the final stroke to hammer in the last nail!!
