DPM says wind of change blowing in Permatang Pasir

Barisan Nasional deputy chairperson Muhyiddin Yassin claimed that a wind of change is blowing across the Permatang Pasir constituency on polling day favouring the federal ruling coalition.

Based on grassroots feedback accumulated during his tour across the constituency today, he could sense that there was an inclination in the people's mood leaning towards BN.

"Perhaps there is a wind of change blowing in the constituency . . . the people's mood is not the same as in during the Permatang Pauh by-elections and general elections (both last year).

"Our ground election leaders and workers have informed me that many voters were responsive towards us.

"They seem to want to help us to win this contest," the deputy premier told a press conference at Seberang Jaya at noon.

When asked to rate BN candidate Rohaizat Othman's chances of winning, he said he was optimistic but declined to comment whether the coalition could wrest the seat from PAS.

"It's difficult to predict.

"We will know in a few hours time . . . need not rush.
