Arif Shah, the assemblyperson of Seberang Jaya is now new hope for BN to face the opposition icon, Anwar Ibrahim. Former candidate Firdaus denied another opportunity after 2 times competed against Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Ismail but failed. Ezam who promised that would give his best to war against Anwar also not given the challenge.
Now the question is Arif as BN candidate able to destroy Anwar’s dream to step into the parliament after a decade of his absence? Is he qualified enough to face the opposition stalwart? Tun Dr Mahathir even stated that no one can beat Anwar. Anyway I'm taking this opportunity to wish good luck for the candidates that contesting in the by-election. Hope it never turned to a "buy-election" by our "clean" politicians!
