Lower turnout will reduce PAS' majority

Ong Kian Ming (Malaysiakini)
If there ever was a time when a short campaign period was more helpful to the opposition than to the BN, Permatang Pasir would be it.
After reducing PAS’ majority in the Manek Urai by-election to a mere 65 votes, the BN were hoping of a better performance in this by-election, perhaps even thinking that they could capture this constituency from the opposition.
