MUAR: The heavy traffic in Muar is a good indication that Johoreans who live elsewhere are coming back to vote in the state polls, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (pic).
The Perikatan Nasional chairman also hoped for a large voter turnout of between 70% and 80%, adding that this would be good for democracy.
"I take this opportunity to appeal to Johor voters to come out and vote, especially those new voters," he said when met by reporters at the SMK Sri Muar polling centre here on Saturday (March 12).
He arrived to cast his vote at 9.05am together with his wife Puan Sri Norainee Abdul Rahman.
"A high voter turnout is important because it will reflect a better representation of the wishes of the Johor people who want change," said Muhyiddin, who is also a former Johor mentri besar.
Meanwhile, the Election Commission said that the total number of voters who have come out to vote in the state polls as of 9am stands at 6%.
