Free Malaysia Today reported that the people of Taman Medan state constituency do not want the Selangor state deputy speaker Haniza Talha to recontest in that seat in the next general election.
They, according to an independent survey, said that the majority of the voters wanted PAS to contest in that seat in the next round.
This is just not the only case of who the people want in the next elections.
In Labuan, it has been made clear that people want a PKR candidate to contest against Barisan not PAS.
I have read somewhere that for the Titiwangsa parliamentary seat, the voters wanted a PKR candidate over a PAS person. That information that I have was about 1.5 - 2 years old.
The risk of not doing so is losing the votes. But on the other hand, it shows what the people wanted.
Remember Bagan Pinang by-election in 2009?
Pakatan made a mistake by fielding in the same person to fight against Isa Samad. They should have asked people around on which party should contest.
The summary here is that Pakatan should do it more often, as what Chegubard implied - go around and ask people who they want to contest - any constraints, etc..
