SERI SETIA POLLS | Pakatan Harapan candidate Halimey Abu Bakar for the Seri Setia state by-election has cast his vote at SK Kampung Lindungan, Jalan PJS 10/11 here.
The former Petaling Jaya City Council member and a local boy from Kampung Lindungan, arrived at the school at 8.40am, accompanied by his wife Suhati Bakri, mother Khalijah Md Yusuf and younger brother Salimey.
His mother and brother voted at the same polling centre while his wife voted at the Taman Dato’ Hormat Multi Purpose Hall in PJS 10/34.
The polling centre at SK Kampung Lindungan and Taman Dato’ Hormat Multi Purpose Hall are among 18 polling centres open since 8am today for 50,692 registered voters to cast their ballot.
Last Tuesday, 77 percent out of the 2,770 early voters, comprising army personnel and their spouses as well as police personnel, voted at the polling centres at the Ababil Multi Purpose Hall of the Subang Air Base and PDRM SMS Complex in Shah Alam.
The by-election is witnessing a straight fight between Halimey and PAS candidate Halimah Ali, who is a former Selangor executive councillor. It was called following the death of Seri Setia state seat incumbent Shaharuddin Badaruddin on Aug 2, who died due to colon cancer.
