A hoarse voice, sunburnt Lim Guan Eng who just returned from Sibu, Sarawak talked to media members in Penang. He described the Sibu by-election campaign as an uphill battle as the Pakatan Rakyat has little resources and they have to compete with both the Sarawak state government and the Federal Government.
The historic result shows that Sarawak voters want a two-party system. Pakatan Rakyat is humbled by the victory and sees it as an endorsement for democracy.
Lim also praised Peter Chin Kah Fui, Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water who practised positive and principled politics who said that the Prime Minister will fulfilled all promises made during the by-election campaign.
