Pekan Bersatu division to campaign for BN candidate

PETALING JAYA: The Pekan Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia division will be mobilised to support Mohd Shahrim Md Zain in the Chini by-election, says its president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (pic).

He said the by-election would be the first for Bersatu under the Perikatan Nasional government.

“As the Bersatu president and Prime Minister of the country, I fully support the candidate that was decided by Barisan Nasional to stand in the Chini by-election,

“To ensure the first victory for Perikatan, all grassroots of the Pekan Bersatu division will be mobilised to campaign for the candidate chosen by the coalition,” he said in a statement yesterday.

Muhyiddin also said the campaign would be further strengthened by the presence of Bersatu’s top leaders from throughout the country.

“The understanding and the maturity of the Perikatan parties to campaign as well as to share the political stage in the Chini by-election is a historic step towards the formation of this alliance as a strong and stable political coalition.

“As such, the victory for the Barisan candidate representing Perikatan in the Chini by-election will give a signal to all Malaysians about Perikatan’s ability as a political coalition to work together to ensure that the people’s welfare agenda and the country’s progress will be successful,” he said.

He also urged all the 20,900 registered voters in Chini to come out to vote and to give their support to the Barisan candidate on July 4.

“Your choice will not just decide the development as well as Chini’s future, but will also open a new chapter of a political direction at the national level,” he said.

Mohd Shahrim is in a three-way fight with independent candidate Mohd Shukri Mohd Ramli and Tengku Datuk Zainul Hisham Tengku Hussin, who has received Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s endorsement.

Early voting for the Chini by-election was held yesterday while polling will be held on Saturday.

The state seat is one of four under the Pekan parliamentary constituency.
