Hulu Selangor

I wonder how both sides are going to spin this bye-election result tomorrow. An upstanding Malay lost to an unknown Indian in a Malay majority constituency. I guess that the political analysts on both sides will be taking out their R calculators and doing deep statistical analyses on the results in the next weeks to figure out how that happened.

Regardless, I think that both sides of the political divide have learned their lessons. I sure hope that they both have. To the losers, there is plenty to learn with regards to operational details and political machinery. To the winners, there is also plenty to learn about how the voting patterns seemed to have moved away from racial lines. Interesting.

I also hope that both sides do not give up the war – the present battle has been both lost and won but the war is still ongoing and the stakes are terribly high.
