What is the MSM's Spin tomorrow?

Now with the increase majority even on decrease voter turned out, any human being or even a single cell organism will know it is a total white wash by PR against BN's Proxy. Let see the option how the MSM will try to spin the number tomorrow: -

5000 umno member actually boycott the by-election

OK! Let do some math here, Mansor win with a total major of 5558 votes. Even if the entire UMNO members come out and vote for one that scored the highest among the 3 independent, Nai with 494 votes. Mansor will be still 6052 and Nai = 5494, and this will still be a win hand down. Remember with the lowest voter turned out in the history! May be the MSM will spin, if all the UMNO members voted for Nai, the majority will decease from 2219 in March 8, 2008

But in reality, if the 5000 strong UMNO members come out to vote, a bigger group of PR members will come out to vote too. Also not all the 5000 members vote purely for one BN's proxy independent. Lets assume the allocation of 5000 votes based on what they are getting now. (total of 942 for 3 independents)

Aminah = 392 (41.6% x 5000 = 2080 votes)
Kamarul = 56 (5.95% x 5000 = 297 votes)
Nai = 494 (52.4% x 5000 = 2623)

Now take Mansor 6052 - Nai's 2623 = 3429! Simple math and even a child can understand! What else can MSM spin tomorrow? But I am not buying any MSM, and how do I know? Do I care? I read them online only without paying a cents non click on thier advertisement!
Mansor Thankful For Victory In Penanti

BUKIT MERTAJAM, May 31 (Bernama) -- Penang Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) deputy chairman Mansor Othman, who won the Penanti by-election today, expressed gratitude for having been given the trust and confidence by the people in the constituency to serve them.

He said his win was also due to the support from colleagues in the opposition pact.

"I'm grateful to have won and thankful to the party leadership and colleagues from DAP and PAS, as well as voters in Penanti," he told reporters after being announced the winner in the by-election at the National Vocational Institute (IKBN) here.

Mansor, who garnered 6,052 votes, defeated three independent candidates -- Aminah Abdullah, 56, Nai Khan Ari a/l Nai Keow, 41, and Kamarul Ramizu Idris, 42, with a majority of 5,558 votes.

The Penanti by-election was held following the resignation of its incumbent, Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin on April 16.

Meanwhile, PKR advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said Mansor's victory was a sign of the people's support for the party.

Anwar and his wife, PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Ismail, as well as leaders of DAP and PAS, were at the IKBN when the result was announced.

About 200 PKR supporters were also gathered in front of the IKBN to celebrate Mansor's win.

Meanwhile Aminah, 56, said she was satisfied, despite not winning the by-election, because she was able to expose the truth about PKR to the voters in the constituency.

She obtained 392 votes and did not rule out the possibility of contesting again in another election.

Kamarul Ramizu, 42, who managed to get 56 votes, accepted his defeat as a motivation for him to work harder in future elections.

"This is a beginning to introduce a new party which I'm setting up, which will be called Parti Iman SeMalaysia," he added.

However, Nai, 41, who obtained 494 votes, accepted defeat but expressed disappointment that he lost his deposit.

All the three independent candidates lost their deposits.
