Even though the saying “man proposes God disposes” may sound fatalistic, leaving everything to fate, all of us may have one time or another come across events that can be best described by this phrase.
Sometimes, no matter how much we try to avoid certain things, they still happen.
BN has decided not to contest the Penanti by election, which in my view is the right decision . Why fight a battle which you are sure to lose?
But somehow fate has a funny way of doing thing.
This time an existing State Assemblyman has passed away in Kelantan, paving the way for yet another by election.
This time UMNO will have no choice but to contest this by election, since this by election is due to natural forces and not ‘man made factor”.
Given the sentiments of the people , UMNO will have a hard time trying to fight this by election.
Another defeat will be bad for UMNO….as well as BN.
