Situation Vacant : Jerai

Posted on October 26, 2007



On 14th May, 2007, this blog carried the following post :

The following seat shall fall vacant upon the announcement of dissolution of the 11th Parliament. The sitting MP has demonstrated himself to be unworthy to continue to hold such office. Interested candidates may apply. There is no closing date.

1. Seat : Jerai

Requirements : The ideal candidate must be free of any supremacist inclinations and must be committed to the concept of ‘Bangsa Malaysia’. He or she must be of such moral fibre as to understand the solemn duty to abide and honour the oath of office to defend and preserve the Constitution.   


Of a total of 50,918 votes polled, Badruddin took 30,154.

His opponent from PAS received 19,749.

The voter ratio then was 77.4% Malays, 16% Chinese, 6.2& Indians and 0.3% others.

I never ever thought I would say this, but for this constituency, I am prepared to go all out to campaign for a PAS win, if this seat is again contested by PAS.

If you want to have 1/2 a chance to make sure he’s not in Parliament next round, the work starts now.

Any readers from Kedah in this blog who want to start work now on ensuring that we do not have to see this fella’s face in the news again after the next elections?

If so, please send me an e-mail at and we can get to work.
