SEREMBAN: Raja Datin Seri Salbiah Tengku Nujumuddin is going all out to campaign for her husband, Umno's Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, in the Rantau by-election despite having undergone knee surgery last year.

She said she wanted to ensure that he would be back to serve his fourth term.

"Our five children will also be joining us during this campaign period. We will go from house to house to get as much support as we can for Tok Mat," she said when met while campaigning in Rantau.

Her children – Amri, 36, Amirah 32, Azrin, 31, Alia, 26 and Aiza, 25 – are helping out. They were also present to lend support to their father during nomination on Saturday (March 30).

Raja Salbiah said she had no problem walking the distance despite her knee surgery in February last year.

"Since walking every morning is already a routine, it will not be a problem for me to meet as many constituents as possible.

"I want to do all that I can to ensure a win for Tok Mat," she said.

Raja Salbiah said the family had also relocated back to Seremban from Kuala Lumpur to ensure they were able to spend as much time in the constituency as needed.

The family moved to the federal capital after Barisan Nasional lost the state government in the May 9 polls, forcing Mohamad, who was Mentri Besar, to vacate his official residence.

"I will also miss my youngest grandchild, who is less than a year old, but I need to support my husband.

"It is my hope that the people of Rantau will remember Tok Mat's contributions and back him again this time," she said.

The couple, who are both 63, have three grandchildren.
