Yes, that was the scene outside Taiping Municipal Council where the Bukit Gantang electoral votes were counted. If my expert friend estimated that the crowd during nomination day was in the region of 80,000, this one is not too far off. I would estimate this crowd to be in the region of minimum 50,000 using nomination day's crowd as a guide. Something for Taiping folks to remember here as they have never see a crowd of this magnitude in their sleepy town.
Fantastic atmosphere. Many friendship were made easily here as we all shared a common cause. The crowd cheered and jeered as the result of each ballot box were announced while a sole helicopter flew above shining its floodlights onto the crowd. The crowd responded by waving their respective party flags towards the sky.
When the results were more or less unassailable to Nizar's advantage, someone lighted off some fireworks display to top up an otherwise euphoric night. A memorable night for all those who scarificed their work and family time to help out in the campaign. And the result made it sweeter. I must pay tribute to those working relentlessly on the ground. Regardless of race or parties, they all worked with One Spirit towards One Cause.
