Ambiga: Harapan million times better, show BN exit tomorrow


Former Bar Council chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan, who described herself as one of Pakatan Harapan's toughest critics, has urged voters to show BN the exit in tomorrow's Cameron Highlands by-election.

According to her, the current administration is “one million times” better than the previous government.

Taking to Twitter, Ambiga also called on outstation voters to return to Cameron Highlands to cast their ballots.

“Come on outstation voters. Please treat this election like a GE (general election) fight and vote! That is how the candidates view it.

“You could truly improve the lives of the people of Cameron Highlands if you bring change here,” she added.

Ambiga was commenting on Lim Kit Siang's statement earlier that BN is expected to win the seat unless there is a “miracle” in the form of an influx of outstation voters.

The DAP veteran said a Harapan victory would also crush former premier Najib Abdul Razak's plan to make a political comeback by using tomorrow's by-election as a launchpad.

“Without an unexpected influx of some 5,000-odd outstation voters to undo BN's advantage, Najib is sailing to victory in his selection of Cameron Highlands...,” he added.

Harapan is fielding M Manogaran, who is contesting the parliament seat for the third time, whereas BN is pinning its hopes on Ramli Mohd Nor, a local from the Orang Asli Semai tribe and a former senior police officer.

There are also two other independent candidates in the race.
