SERI SETIA POLLS | Pakatan Harapan candidate Halimey Abu Bakar said today that there will be affordable homes will be built in Seri Setia if he wins the state seat in the Sept 8 by-election.
Halimey said he would work with the Housing and Local Government Ministry to increase the number of affordable homes in the constituency for the benefit of the people.
“If given the mandate, I will make housing my priority for the sake for the people in Seri Setia,” he said in a press conference held at the Harapan operations room here today.
Halimey said at present the main obstacle was not having a location for affordable homes, but he was confident that every problem had a solution.
“I will work with the ministry and identify the areas which are suitable for this housing,” he said.
Halimey, a former member of the Petaling Jaya City Council, said throughout the campaign so far, he had the help of all the component parties in Harapan, except DAP which was focusing on the Balakong by-election.
In the Seri Setia by-election, which is being held following the death of its assemblyperson Shaharuddin Badaruddin from cancer on Aug 2, Halimey faces a straight fight with PAS candidate Dr Halimah Ali.
The by-election is held simultaneously with that in Balakong, which was triggered by the death of its assemblyperson Eddie Ng in a road accident on July 20.
