Will Najib, the 'Grandmaster of Elections' succeed in keeping KT, a BN seat?

Super Mohd Najib Razak

In 1999 General Elections - he won by a majority of 241

Then the number of voters increased substantially, and Najib have been continued winning with bigger majorities.

In 2004, he won by a majority of 22,922

In 2008, he wins by a majority of 26,464

Even, when the general tide was against BN - Mohd Najib Razak increased his majority...

P85 - PEKANTurnout : 47869 (82.2%) Spoilt: 1261
Voters: 58217
* Mohd Najib Abdul Razak (BN - UMNO)36262Maj: 26464
Khairul Anuar Ahmad Zainudin (OPP - PKR)9798

Mohd Najib Abdul Razak (BN - UMNO)31956Maj: 22922
Zakaria Dahlan (OPP - PAS)9034

General Elections 1999

Ramli Mohamed (OPP PAS)
Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak (BN UMNO)

Total Votes cast % Votes cast Spoilt Votes Majority Votes
26055 73.2 631 241

Well, when results all over the country in GE2008 saw an increase in votes for the opposition and a decrease of votes for the BN candidate - Mohd Najib Abdul Razak saw an increase. Either, the constituents really liked this man OR...

Now, Najib, the 'Grandmaster of Elections' sits perched comfortably as the next President of UMNO in March 2009 - and as such the head of the BN....and maybe the next Prime Minister of the country...and as such will this factor ensure a BN victory in KT, remembering that in GE2008 the BN won this seat.

I say, maybe the next Prime Minister...because it is never automatic - it depends on who has the most support among the MPs when there is a vacancy after Abdullah Ahmad Badawi resigns (that is, if he resigns....).
