GE15: Trending or not, voting on polling day matters – KJ
KUALA LUMPUR – Barisan Nasional candidate for Sungai Buloh Khairy Jamaluddin has commented that whether being popular, trending, taking selfies or even leading any popularity polls will not be meaningful if the voters do not come out to vote on polling day.
According to Khairy Jamaluddin, known as KJ, the main thing is to be at the constituency, meet and solve the issues of the people (rakyat).
Highlighting local issues is equally important and any major issues in Sungai Buloh will be addressed at national level, he told reporters after meeting at Dataran Pasar Tani, Kampung Melayu Subang here today.
Having experience serving as Minister, addressing the issues in Sungai Buloh will be his main priority.
On Sunday NST reported that — If selfies can turn into votes, Khairy Jamaluddin is upbeat he will be able to wrest the Sungai Buloh parliamentary constituency from the opposition in the 15th General Election (GE15).
However, the caretaker Health Minister said this in jest when he explained his delay in attending the programmes planned for his campaign trail at the constituency.
The Sungai Buloh parliamentary seat will see seven candidates in the fray for the 15th General Election (GE15).
The candidates are Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar (Barisan Nasional-Umno), Ramanan Ramakrishnan (Pakatan Harapan-PKR), Mohd Ghazali Md Hamin (Perikatan Nasional-PAS), Mohd Akmal Mohd Yusoff (Gerakan Tanah Air-Pejuang ), Ahmad Jufliz Faiza (Parti Rakyat Malaysia), Syed Abdul Razak Syed Long Alsagoff (Independent) and Nurhaslinda Basri (Independent).
From 2008 to 2018, Sivarasa Rasiah from PKR has been the member of parliament.
