PAS can’t win over Chinese voters in Kuala Terengganu by-election

Chinese is comprising 11 per cent of the electorate of about 80,000 of the electorate in the P36 Kuala Terengganu constituency and seems to play a decisive role in determining the outcome of the coming by-election.

The political impact is great toward the political future of BN and PAS in the by-election. Can PAS winning over the highest number of Chinese voters in the state capital of Kuala Terengganu which surrounded by 99 percent of the population Malays, remains the vital question for the leaders of partisan parties and political analysis to chronicles this exciting result.

Traditionally, the 11% Chinese voters in the electorate is strongly backed BN which is considerably more liberal among the parties. PAS’s Islamic policy would certainly claim to create uneasiness among the Chinese voters.

The PAS years of administration in Terengganu strongly are remembered for its Islamic policies. The attempts to implement Hudud law, the ban on sale of alcohol, the prohibition of karaoke and public performances and gender segregation are by far the most inane frequently discussed subject matter.

The Chinese criticized PAS for the underlying threat in its attempts to them. They would not take softer tone on PAS as it has proof not changed in any way, despite its apparent softer approach toward non-Islamic society.

The by-election is claimed never been a better time to be the utmost crucial and forthcoming radical political platform for PAS to show that Islam and PAS is the only way forward for the Malay.
