PAKATAN Harapan’s candidate in the Seri Setia by-election Halimey Abu Bakar will focus on helping the urban poor in the constituency.

He pledged to give more attention to the low-income (B40) group living in the government’s Housing Project for the Hardcore Poor (PPRT).

“They have to put up with problems ranging from damaged lifts to low water pressure issues.

“When the lift malfunctions, pregnant women, senior citizens and sick residents find it difficult to leave their homes,” he said.

Halimey added that the installation of closed-circuit television cameras would help curb vandalism.

If elected, Halimey will also assist single mothers by helping them gain skills to earn extra income.

“They need help starting their own businesses so we will assist by organising courses like sewing,” he said.

Halimey initiated a similar programme during his term as a councillor in Petaling Jaya City Council.

With regard to security, Halimey proposed that the Rukun Tetangga be revived and a counselling group set up to identify problems faced by the community.

Halimey is contesting against PAS’ Dr Halimah Ali in the by-election.

Polling for both the Seri Setia and Balakong by-elections is on Sept 8.

The seats fell vacant after the incumbents of both seats died.
