    The Annexe Gallery By-Election will take place this Sun 19 June 2011. The seat fell vacant following the death of incumbent MP Datuk Dr Like To Grab who suffered withdrawal symptoms from due to Arts For Grabs March 2011 not happening and eventually died of a heart attack. The much-loved arts bazaar failed to take place for still unknown reasons and was the cause of the deaths and mental breakdowns for many other Malaysians over the last few months. The Health Ministry recently announced its relief following the confirmation of the next Arts For Grabs this June. Meanwhile, Police are on the lookout for Mr Pang Khee Teik, the gallery’s Arts Programme Director who has been AWOL since investigations began.

    The Annexe Gallery, measuring approximately 5000 sq. ft., attracts over 2000 voters during Arts For Grabs + KL Alternative Bookfest. Winning the Annexe Gallery is crucial for both parties. Due to its strategic location (neighbouring landmarks include Central Market, The Malaysian Bar Council, and Soong Kee Beef Ball Noodle Shop), the gallery fetches consistent rental income; and serves as an ideal spot for hobnobbing with the middle classes, hipsters and artistically-inclined activists. As such, extremely aggressive campaigning is expected.

    The Star: Azmyl Wins 'By-Election' With Free Condoms Pledge (#P223 UndiMalaysia!)

    P223 UM! Azmyl & Parti All Nite Long partying along
    UndiMalaysia! P223 Annexe Gallery seat grabbed by Azmyl Yunor (Parti All Nite Long) in a tight contest with Syahredzan Johan (Let’s Go Parti) on 19 June 2011. And Isabelle Lai writes about it for The Star!



    KUALA LUMPUR: It had the feel of a real by-election campaign. Posters bearing the candidates’ names and faces fluttered proudly in the air while manifestos were distributed during the campaign period.

    Fighting in a mock by-election organised by Undi Malaysia, a new voter education campaign, candidates Azmyl Yunor of Parti All Night Long and Syahredzan Johan of Lets Go Parti verbally slugged it out on key issues such as health, food, housing and freedom of speech.

    Much to the amusement of "voters", Azmyl even offered to distribute free condoms in his health safety pledge.

    After a tense vote count, Azmyl emerged triumphant with 58 votes as the crowd rallied behind his populist approach.

    Syah’s more pro-establishment image proved unpopular despite the liberal view he held on issues, earning him 47 votes.


    P223 UM! Syah & Let's Go Parti campaigned from the word "Go!"

    Undi Malaysia campaigner Zain HD said the mock by-election was a one-day exercise to open people’s eyes on the importance of voting wisely.

    "It’s a humorous way of showing them how to understand bread-and-butter issues that affect all Malaysians," he said, stressing that smart voting was the key to good and intelligent governance.

    He was disappointed that the results showed voters had not been able to see past the person and on the issues championed.

    "Azmyl was very populist. It was an interesting observation that the populist approach works. When people are angry - they are blinded to real issues," he said.

    He said the rakyat needed to understand exactly what they were voting for and why.

    To tackle this, Undi Malaysia was initiated by Pusat Rakyat Loyar Burok (a community centre opened by the founders of the Loyar Burok blog site) to activate and empower the rakyat on their voting power.

    The campaign also used twitter as a platform.
