SG KANDIS POLLS | BN candidate for Sungai Kandis state by-election Lokman Noor Adam will convene a meeting with PAS leaders in the state constituency in a bid to get them to join his campaign to win the hearts of the Malay voters there.
He said the meeting would probably be held next week.
“I have contacted my friends from PAS... to discuss the possibility of us (BN) working together with PAS branch leaders during the campaign.
“But I have to focus on meeting BN leaders here first, so maybe I will meet with PAS leaders on Wednesday or Thursday,” he told reporters today.
The by-election, which is being called following the death of incumbent Mat Shuhaimi Shafiei of PKR on July 2, sees a three-cornered fight between Lokman Noor, Mohd Zawawi Ahmad Mughni (PKR) and Murthy Krishnasamy (Independent).
Meanwhile, Lokman said the difficulties in obtaining a business licence will be among the issues he would try to solve if given the mandate to lead the constituency.
“During my visit to the market today, many traders expressed their dissatisfaction with the difficulties they had been facing to obtain a business licence.
“They also complained about the presence of so many foreign traders here, hence affecting local traders. The state government has to act sternly to overcome this problem," he said.
