The Batu Sapi by-election hotly contested between three parties namely, BN, SAPP and PKR. The contested was actually focussed on BN against SAPP, but the unexpected results of SAPP behind the PKR on votes actually from deceit, character assasinations, massive bribery and votes buying.
SAPP was attacked both left and right by the BN and PKR+DAP. BN's campaign came in all sorts, from vote-buying, election promises of huge projects, controlling of the mainstream media, TV and newspapers, using Tham Dog strategy while the PKR and DAP hard hitting Yong and SAPP...even to extent of asking the voters during their final ceramah to either vote for BN or PKR.
The game plan of PKR was to get second place while SAPP hopes are sincere to topple the BN in Batu Sapi.
