Pakatan to win a third of Johor?

Kit Siang says the opposition will have no trouble taking 10 parliament and 11 state seats.
KUALA LUMPUR: DAP strongman Lim Kit Siang today welcomed a prediction that Pakatan Rakyat will win 10 parliament and 11 state seats in Johor, but he said it might do even better.
“We are aiming for 12 parliament seats,” he said in reaction to an article in Nanyang Siang Pau.
There are 25 parliament and 56 state seats in Johor.
The Chinese daily, quoting unnamed sources, said Barisan Nasional would lose about a third of its support in the Umno-stronghold state. It said Pakatan had a good chance of capturing 10 parliament and 11 state seats there.
Lim told a press conference here that Pakatan’s target was to win 125 seats in Parliament and that he expected 33 of these to be won in Johor, Sabah and Sarawak.
Lim also spoke about the BN tactic of using NGOs to win voter support through corrupt practices.
Referring to a party thrown by the 1Malaysia Brotherhood in Penang last night, he said the Election Commission (EC) and Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) were negligent in allowing such “open corruption”.
“The whole of Penang was having free food,” he said. “There were roasted pigs, 1,000 crates of beer, lucky draws with attractive prices.
“Money was thrown all over the road in the name of 1Malaysia. There was no need for anyone to cook at all. This is open corruption.
“The EC and MACC are totally useless if they cannot take action.”
According to China Press, 1Malaysia Brotherhood spent about RM230,000 on the Penang event.
