Nizar victorious in Bukit Gantang, More pressure on Najib

Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin, the ousted mentri besar of Perak was victorious in tonight's by-election in Bukit Gantang. Congratulations!

PR won with a majority of 2,789 votes compared with 1,566 in last year's general election.

This is a referendum on who the people of Perak want as the state government.

As such it is high time, as a new prime minister, to do the right thing for democracy in Malaysia by ensuring that the people of Perak get a government they have themselves elected by dissolving the parliament and calling for fresh elections

Najib has been speaking the language of reform, of building a performance based nation and committed himself to building a democracy responsive to the needs, aspirations and concerns of all Malaysians.

So do what you have committed in your maiden speach..... Be a man, DO THE RIGHT THING!
