TAMPIN: Pakatan Harapan (PH) is confident that the party has the advantage to retain the Tampin parliamentary seat in the 15th General Election (GE15) which voting day will take place this Saturday.
The PH candidate for the seat, Muhammad Faiz Fadzil, said his confidence was based on the positive reception of the people in the Tampin Parliament and that they wanted a stable and clean government.
According to him, even the people in Tampin also support the PH Chairman, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as a candidate for Prime Minister if he is given a mandate in GE15.
“This is what we can feel, a wave of voter silence across the country. I’m not saying I’m too confident, but there’s confidence we can keep this seat.
“Although this wave is not as big or loud as 2018, 2013 and 2008, we (PH) can still feel it. Maybe this is the attitude of Malaysians now, God willing, we believe the people of Tampin are smart enough to judge even in this GE15, the competition in this Parliament involves four corners,” he said.
He said this when met by reporters during a meeting with voters at Ladang Regent, Gemencheh, here today.
In this GE15, Muhammad Faiz was challenged by Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate, Datuk Mohd. Isam Mohd Isa; the National Alliance (PN) candidate, Major (B) Abdul Halim Abu Bakar and the Tanahair Party (Pejuang) candidate, Zamani Ibrahim.
In the 14th General Election (GE14), the Tampin parliamentary seat was won by PH through Datuk Dr. Hasan Baharom with a majority of 1,002 votes.
He got 22,435 votes compared to BN represented by Datuk Seri Shaziman Abu Mansor who got 21,433 votes while Pas contested by Abdul Halim got 4,598 votes.
Meanwhile, Muhammad Faiz insisted, if given a mandate by the voters, he will fight for various issues of the people in Tampin including public infrastructure and village roads.-UTUSAN.
