As Datuk Seri Haji Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin, took to the stage, diners and non-diners alike, were on their feet to warmly welcome a man who, in the shortest possible time, has won the affection of the people with his genuine concern for all, regardless of race or religion, and his drive to unite all Malaysians and to end race-based politics in the country.
He stressed how, in 10 months of governance, the Pakatan state government had begun the efforts to bring real harmonious co-existence amongst the various races in the state.
When he stepped up to the rostrum to deliver his short speech, he was passionate about what he had to say.

Let this by-election pave the way for a new Pakatan Rakyat government to bring about the changes that the rakyat want.
