So PAS managed to retain its seat in Manek Urai and the margin of victory certainly raises a few questions.
According to this malaysiakini article Manek Urai: PAS wins by 65 votes it would seem that many PAS supporters turned against them.
Perhaps some were persuaded by the DPM's bribery/blackmail of giving them a bridge - I am sure in a more law-abiding nation, that guy will be arrested and charged for bribery but over here you know - "Malaysia Boleh."
Furthermore he is also the Minister of Education - so I guess our children will learn that blackmail/bribery is also OK.
So BN almost managed to swing this by-election. Can you guess how much public funds or your taxes have gone to support the BN campaign?
PAS too needs to reassess its own position as recent moves by them to form the "unity" government appears to have had adverse effects on their supporters.
