Dilemma on coalition or seat in Hulu Selangor

Looks like comments from Khairy hoping for “youthful”  young candidate is not appreciated by MIC in Hulu Selangor.  As a public, I feel BN have a chance of winning the seat if BN leaders minus the PM put a lid on their talks. Nearly every other word mentioned end up creating more problem for everyone else.

Today MIC had their CWC meeting at night. Not sure what is the outcome. Earlier, a number of Hulu Selangor MIC branches said will quit or close shop. Even other division leaders in Selangor are unhappy with interference by UMNO.

So, what is the option here? Stick with Palanivel which was the only option given by MIC to BN? That would mean respecting coalition partner’s choice. Or put another candidate (Mugilan says he would quit if nominated) which will be an insult to MIC? What BN values more? Coalition partner’s decision, sentiment on the ground (which may be conflicting as no one has done a proper and thorough survey), or chance of winning? If BN can win the seat by putting someone else, would they do it?

I also wonder if this just some drama being played, so that later can “patch up” and show how strong the coalition is. I for one, don’t trust politicians, especially those who tend to speak half-truths and no-truths before GE12. Before election, everything have to be taken with a pinch of salt.

I think it will be Palanivel after all.
