So far, Khalid Al-Shaer, the candidate running for the 4th District in the Central Governate against Dr. Muneera Fakhro of Waad is in second place, according to this poll in Al-Wasat this morning in which Mr. Alshaer got 29% against Dr. Muneera Fakhro’s 43%.
Quite surprising really as his purported electioneering budget needs a truck to haul it around. Allegedly half a million Bahraini Dinars!
Where the hell do people get money like that from? Or rather, how much money does a 38-year-old have to throw away half a million smackeroos with not compunction whatsoever?
Never mind though. Even with that stratospheric number for Bahraini elections, he’s still in 2nd place and the 1st is just a pipe dream in this case. 2nd place doesn’t get jack.
Well, unless some dirty tricks take place on the day that is, like what’s supposedly happened in the last election in the very same district against the very same Waad candidate…
Strange, really really strange.
