As Manchester United fans awaited eagerly for the live telecast of their match against Bolton which will see whether their favourite team top the Premier League table on saturday evening, supporters of BN and the opposition brace themselves for the result of the Kuala Terengganu parliamentary by-election results.
Final score, Pas won by a majority of 2,631 against BN-UMNO and an independent. Its was the second time that BN has suffered a setback since the March 8, 2008 general elections.
The first setback was when BN-UMNO lost to PKR in the Permatang Pauh seat. Now the appeal court decision on the Pensiangan election petition will determine whether BN will face a third by-election in as many months.
Should there be one, it would be a first time a BN component pary instead of UMNO being put to the test. So should it be BN-PBRS vs a national party and a local party?
