COMMENT | Due to the injustice and intentional hindrance by the Election Commission (EC), I am unable to represent Pakatan Harapan (Harapan) to contest in the coming 14th general election, to defend one of the most winnable parliamentary seats for Harapan, which is P115 Batu.
I have been the people’s representative in Batu for two terms, and together with my commitment before that, I have been serving this area for more than 15 years, so it is not exaggerating to say that Batu is Tian Chua’s second hometown. I have a close relationship with the people in Batu, and during my tenure as the MP for this constituency of 10 years, we have been uniting and working closely together, and I believe that we have been on the right path in these years, doing all our best for the people of Batu.
However, due to the EC’s malicious hindrance, I am unable to continue serving everyone as an MP for the time being, but I will continue to stand together with the people of Batu without turning back.
To all the voters of Batu, it is definitely unacceptable for the EC to steal the Batu people’s right of choice, by using such an implausible reasoning which is illegitimately transcending the ruling by the High Court and the speaker of the Dewan Rakyat. The Batu people’s right of choice cannot be stolen!...
