BN only managed to increase their votes by 862 despite of massive election campaign machinery and cheating (breaking every possible rules and reulations). No big deal if you remember that the Independent cnadidate Ng Chee Pang is only a 22 year-old political novice without the backing of any organised body or political parties. He did not even put up a single poster while the BN candidate has certainly spent much, much more than the stipulated RM100,000 during the 13 -day campaign. You may quickly add that Aziz Kiram may have spent RM100,000 or more everyday throughout the campaign.
On the other hand, Both Chan Kong Choy and Ng Yen Yen of MCA have claimed that the BN has garnered 80% of the Chinese votes in the Batu Talam by-election. Bullshit!
In Cheroh itself, MCA could only garnered about half the Chinese votes. Here’s the datails…
Ind Ng Chee Pang – 247 votes
BN Aziz Kiram – 889 votes
Spoilt votes – 33 votes
Only about 500 Chinese voters came out to vote in Cheroh. Out of the 889 votes obtained by Aziz Kiram, some 600 to 700 votes came from the Malays and Indians. Aziz could have only garnered some 200 to 300 Chinse votes. Most of the 247 votes given to Ng Chee Pang were from the Chinese voters. Most of 33 spoilt votes presumably came from the Malays (PAS supporters?) Ng hardly obtained any M and I votes under the massive BN party machinery in Batu Talam.
According to the Merdeka Review website, 60% (682) of the 1,137 registered Chinese voters cast thier votes on polling day, Chee Peng got 419 votes out of that, which means some 61% of Chinese votes went to to Chee Peng. But it’s unlikely that Chee Pang did not get some Malay or Indian votes from elsewhere. I believe those votes he obtained from Tersang and Ulu Atok atually came from the Malay or Indian voters. It’s inconceivable to argue that every of the 419 votes obtained by Chee Pang came from the Chinese voters.
Shame on you, MCA.
