No Chance For Independent In Bukit Selambau – PKR April 3, 2009Posted by Parti KeADILan Rakyat Bahagian Batu in Aktiviti Ahli Parlimen, Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Pakatan Rakyat, Parti Keadilan Rakyat, PKR Bahagian Batu, Rakyat.
Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) said Thursday (2 April) it is impossible for any of the 13 independent candidates to win the Bukit Selambau state by-election.
PKR information chief Tian Chua said their presence would only split PKR’s votes and confuse the voters.
“It is unlikely that any of them can win. They don’t stand a chance, not even a mathematical chance, of winning the seat,” he told reporters here. He claimed that the presence of too many independents were tactics employed by the Barisan Nasional to split PKR’s votes.
Tian Chua also said that PKR’s position among the top in the list of candidates in the ballot papers would give it an advantage.
