LUNDU: The youngest son of the late Tan Sri Adenan Satem has pledged that he and his family will help with Barisan Nasional’s campaigning during the 14-day period.

Azizul Annuar Adenan said this was because his mother, Puan Sri Jamilah Anu, was still in mourning.

He expressed gratitude to the strong support accorded to Jamilah from the Tanjong Datu constituents who came in droves to the nomination centre.

He also thanked the top Barisan leadership for entrusting his mother to contest in the by-election.

Azizul welcomed the contest from the two local Opposition parties, stating that this was part of the country’s democratic process.

“Initially, we hoped that there will not be any contest, but this is a democratic country.

“It is all right to have a contest. Come Feb 18, we will see the results,” he told reporters when asked about his mother’s chances of winning the by-election.
