Internal gloom may doom Bagan Pinang for BN

Political rivalry within Umno, MIC and MCA seems to be putting a serious damper in BN’s attempt to break its by-election jinx of eight straight defeats suffered at the hands of Pakatan Rakyat in Peninsular Malaysia.
Political grudges, enmity and jealousy from the past and the present in Umno circles appear to be hounding former party vice-president Mohd Isa Abdul Samad in his bid to be selected as the BN candidate for the Bagan Pinang state by-election.
