At Bukit Gantang Parliamentary by-elections, the contest is between 'ousted' and legitimate Perak Mentri Besar, Datuk Seri Ir Nizar Jamaluddin from PAS, Barisan Nasional's Ismail Saffian and an Independent candidate Kamarul Ramizi.
While at Batang Ai, Sarawak State elections, its a straight contest against Malcolm Mussen of Barisana Nasional and Jawah Gerang for the PKR.
Looking at the public sentiments, it seems that the Opposition will win the elections but it is still too earlier to speculate since the Barisan Nasional would induce 'goodies' to buy the hearts of the voters and people in the respective areas as usual.
It would be a 'pesta' time in these areas until voting day on 7 April 2009.
