THE ANNEXE GALLERY BY-ELECTION
Let’s Go Parti vs Parti All Nite Long!
Presented by UndiMalaysia!
Sun 19 Jun, 2011, 6pm
(Campaigning starts from 12pm to 6pm)
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.
