The Ijok by-election in Selangor on 28th April 2007, less than year before the 12th General Elections in March 2008, would answer in the positive.
In the Ijok by-election, the BN candidate, K. Parthiban, won with a majority of 1,850 votes – more than the 1,649-vote Barisan Nasioanal majority in 2004 General Election. Parthiban secured 5,884 votes while Keadilan’s Abdul Khalid Ibrahim got 4,034 votes.
In the March 8, 2008 General Election some ten months later, Khalid converted his by-election defeat by 1,850-vote majority into victory with a majority of 1,920 votes, polling 7,196 votes against the Barisan Nasional’s candidate, Mohd Sayuti Said who polled 5,276 votes.
The challenge for Pakatan Harapan is how to do an “Ijok” in the Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar parliamentary constituencies in the 14th General Election.
With the Ijok example, there should be no need for any hand-wringing or prognosis of gloom and doom for the Pakatan Harapan in the next general election.
