As the nomination day for Machap by-election is drawing closer, aspirational parties started to fire pre-election salvos, marking the beginning of the psycho and counter psycho to test the mood swing of voters.
The BN head of Malacca, Datuk Ali Rustam has expressed his desire for the voters to be given the day off on the election day, come 12th April 2007.
The Deputy Prime Minister, who happens to be the No 2 man in BN claimed that the opposition parties are inconsistent in their stand, referring to the previous Batu Talam by-election when the main opposition parties decided to boycott the by-election.
Democratic Action Party (DAP) who many feels will put their candidate in the by-election has accused the Election Commission's Chairman of bias in selecting the date for the all important by-election.
This is the by-election closly monitored by all parties from both sides of the fence, BN or opposition and maybe the fence sitters and the political analysts.
The online news will play a small but important role in the by-election. Whether the online bloggers will be able to sway the voters will be closely monitored by the main media as well as the guys from the so called 4th floor in Putrajaya.
