It's Arif Shah v Anwar

Ariff Shah calon BN tentang Anwar di Permatang Pauh

BUTTERWORTH 13 Ogos – Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri Seberang Jaya, Datuk Ariff Shah Omar Shah dipilih sebagai calon Barisan Nasional (BN) yang akan menentang Datuk Seri Anwar brahim dalam pilihan raya kecil Parlimen Permatang Pauh pada 26 Ogos Ini.

Pengumuman itu dibuat oleh Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak pada majlis pelancaran jentera pilihan raya BN di sini malam ini.

Anwar yang merupakan Penasihat Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) akan bertanding di kawasan Parlimen itu selepas isterinya, Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail mengosongkan kerusi tersebut. - Utusan

Now that's settled, can we please move on with the show? No more sidetracking, demonstration this and picketing that. Don't try to buy votes from elsewhere. Let's just concentrate on P44-Permatang Pauh, shall we?

Anyway, hard-luck Ezam! Maybe next time.

P/S Here is Arif Shah's website by the way. I've had a brief chat with the guy once during an opening ceremony of SME Bank's branch in Seberang Jaya couple of months back. Nice chap. More on him here and here.

Yes, I guess we all do. Who doesn't want to see Malaysia trashing Brazil in a football match one day, eh? Then again, politic is not football, or wait, isn't it the same? If memory serves me right, somebody did give a "football analogy" with regard to his political career. "I'm just warming up, you can't expect me to score 2,3 goals now", he said. Who said that?

Correcto-mundo bro CT!! I can always count on you, hahaha. Who else, huh? If only he would announce his resignation from all government and political post with immediate effect on the eve of the nomination day. The underdog will sure give the favourite a run for his money. haha
