It's polling day in Kajang today.
A PKR's engineered by-election that no one really wanted except DS Anwar Ibrahim and his followers.
It's a farce of sort, as fate had it that it coincide with the heart wrenching mystery of the missing MH370, a yet to be solved tragedy which reminded us that there are bigger and more urgent things than politics.
It should had also reminded Anwar and his followers that the world doesn't revolves around them.
Of course, they didn't get it.
They were too wrapped up in their own sense of self importance.
Information from the ground in Kajang had however indicated that PKR's DS Dr Wan Azizah Ismail is still the favorite to win but BN's candidate DP Chew Mei Fun is likely to significantly slash the majority won by Pakatan in GE13 last year
Even a survey conducted by a private university which is known to be a hotbed of Pakatan activism agreed with that assessment as reported here,
The possibility of BN springing a surprise in the constituency which is now known to be a Pakatan's stronghold should not yet be discounted, albeit the reality of Chew's chances being rather slim.
Nonetheless, the fact remains that Pakatan needs to win this by-election convincingly.
Anything short of an overwhelming victory will spell disaster for them.
It will be a clear indication that the rakyat were likely getting tired of the endless political wrangling perpetrated by the Pakatan gang over the past decade.
It's even worse for Anwar. If his wife fails to increase the almost 7,000 majority won by PKR there in GE13, he has to accept the end of his political relevancy.
After all, his Kajang Move was supposed to propel him to Putrajaya. It was also supposed to kick start Reformasi 2.0.
If his wife, who is acting as his proxy after the Court of Appeals' decision to reverse his acquittal for sodomy, fails to clinch a crushing victory, how was he to claim that the whole of Malaysia were with him and disbelieve the courts' judgement that he did indeed committed sodomy?
Already, Wan Azizah had rubbished such notions here
Wan Azizah unperturbed by majority, says a win is a win
Nonetheless, with Wan Azizah saying that, any reasonable man would be able to sense that she and the rest of the Pakatan leadership were fearful of a less than a convincing victory in Kajang.
That's the reason why they tried to play down the significance of them winning with lesser majority at the poll today.
After all, DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang and other top Pakatan leaders had confidently proclaimed that Chew will even lose her deposit for standing as a candidate in the by-election.
