Redelineation confuses Taman Wawasan Puchong folk


FYI, you guys are now under the Kinrara and Subang seats... Chiew (centre) doing his walkabout at the Taman Wawasan morning market.

MANY residents at the Taman Wawasan morning market in Puchong were confused to learn that their area is now part of the Kinrara (state) and Subang (parliament) constituencies, instead of the Seri Serdang (state) and Puchong (parliament), following the redelineation exercise.

Barisan Nasional candidate for the Kinrara state constituency Lawrence Chiew Kai Heng (MCA) was seen visiting the market and explaining the changes to folk at the market as he hit the campaign trail.

N.C. Ong, 60, expressed surprise upon learning about the changes.

“I used to vote in the Puchong parliamentary seat, so why am I under Subang now? It’s confusing,” she asked.

There were those who were aware of the changes, though. 

“We can check our polling districts online,” said one savvy hawker.

On his round there, Chiew also gave a speech on a makeshift stage to explain the changes post-redelineation.

“With the redelineation, the number of Chinese voters have increased in the Kinrara constituency but not the percentage.

“The number of constituents have also increased. I take it as an encouragement and a chance to serve more people,” he said.
