BARISAN Nasional’s political machinery has started ploughing the Kepong ground in preparation for the general election.
The team, led by Federal Territory PPP chief Datuk A. Chandrakumanan, had started visiting the local community in Kepong Baru.
He was handing out leaflets on Barisan’s manifesto to spread awareness on the government’s efforts in the area.
The team handed out some 1,500 copies at the Kepong Baru night market on Sunday.
“There is quite a big turnout at the night market so we managed to reach out to a big crowd.
“The response so far has been quite positive and people are willing to listen to what we have to share,” he said.
Chandrakumanan is expected to contest the Kepong seat on a Barisan ticket.
Kepong may be a challenging seat for PPP given its large number of Chinese voters.
The Chinese community makes up about 90% of the population there.
Kepong has been a DAP seat since 1982 when incumbent Dr Tan Seng Giaw took office.
Tan may be contesting the Kepong seat for an eighth term but it has been speculated that DAP is mulling over a new candidate for Kepong.
