One small step for Umno but a giant leap for truth

Raja Sara Petra

I have said this before and I will say it again. The Semenyih by-election is not just a by-election. It is a contest between truth and lies. Pakatan Harapan won the 14th general election in May 2018 against the backdrop of lies. The Semenyih by-election has proven that in the end truth prevails and lies can no longer sustain.

Never mind what the majority is. As Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad himself said, a win by even one vote is still a win. And Umno won the Semenyih by-election by more than just one vote.

We need to thank our comrades in PAS who, without them, this win would not have been possible. The Semenyih by-election, just like the Cameron Highlands by-election before this, has proven that when the Malays/Muslims unite the impossible becomes possible. Let us repeat this victory and win the third by-election in Rantau. We still have many battles ahead of us before we can win the war, which is GE15 in 2023 or so.
