I am at the rally since 5 pm. The crowd is rather small, my guess is about 3,000. I suppose the small turnout means everyone is somewhat jaded by Malaysian politics and worrying more about economics.
The crowd is expected to increase after Maghrib prayers. Despite the small crowd the atmosphere is great and its good to catch up with friends and supporters.
It is now 9 pm and the crowd is still building up. We have around 8,000 now at the field. It is obvious that we have to work harder to address this fall in support.
