SG KANDIS POLLS | Voters in the Sungai Kandis state assembly constituency must retain the candidate from PKR as their people’s representative as the party had proven its ability to run the state well since 2008.
Deputy Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said there is no need for the voters to change to a representative from another party, especially since the federal government was now run by Pakatan Harapan.
"Why should you change (the people’s representative)? Tomorrow, just vote our people (PKR).
“Why do you want to give them (victory to BN). The federal government, the Selangor government are all held by Harapan... why change (to other candidates besides PKR), “ she said in her speech last night before today's by-election.
Also present were PKR deputy president and Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali, Water, Land and Natural Resources Minister Dr Xavier Jayakumar, Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari and the Harapan candidate for Sungai Kandis, Mohd Zawawi Ahmad Mughni.
The PKR president said voters in the state constituency should vote for Zawawi, who has a better track record than his BN rival.
“Selangor is a rich state, we want a good administration, so vote for ustaz (Zawawi) who has a good track record.
“The other candidate (BN) can change (his struggles), our candidate has served the people from the very beginning.
“Sungai Kandis voters must vote for the PKR, Harapan candidate... do not waste your vote, and vote for ustaz as the people’s representative for Sungai Kandis state seat,” she said.
Zawawi faces a three-cornered fight against BN candidate Lokman Noor Adam and independent candidate K Murthy today.
The by-election is being held following the death of incumbent Mat Shuhaimi Shafiei from lymphoma on July 2.
Wan Azizah also said her husband, de facto PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim, could not attend the talk tonight as he was not well.
