DAP Final Battle of The Century Night @ Sibu By-Election
For those who care about Sibu by-election and somehow, for any reason couldn't be here to feel the heat of it, here I present to you what happened last night which appeared to be the biggest and the hottest political gathering ever by DAP or even for Sibu!
The turn up was impressive and the atmosphere was great! It was estimated that more than 6000 people attending this event! Do you ever attend a concert? Any concert? Yeah, I would describe the atmosphere as just like in a concert where the spectators emotion are high, responsive and excited! Some spectators blowing the whistle to cheer for the political leaders on stage. DAP flags were waved in the air!
Lots of big names were here last night. One of them was Chairman of DAP Malaysia Karpal Singh. Despite his inconvenient, he still made to the stage and share his experience. Then, there was DAP spiritual leader Lim Kit Siang, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, DAP golden speaker Nee Kor Ming, Parliament opposition head Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and the most surprising, the president of PAS Malaysia Tuan Guru Abdul Haji Awang.
The place was terribly jammed and there was a helicopter (police) patrolling in the air throughout the event to monitor the situation. Through half way of the event, fireworks can be seen!! But that was not DAP's fireworks. It was fireworks from a local corporate.
It was a great night and the event continue until almost midnight. This was something that Sibu people never experience before and it also signified the end of the great Sibu by-election campaign week!
