Excerpt : " With PAS joining the fray in Sungai Acheh, the OPPOSITION  seems to be heading for a clash to garner a sizeable support .... "

Bernama News should report more accurately.  Penang State in governed by PKR ,  BN is the opposition NOT PAS as opposition !  

 When reporting Bernama News should NOT mislead people . Do get used  to mindset  BN/UMNO as opposition in PKR ruled states.
