State polls: Undivided by politics, four friends arrive together to support different candidates


Neighbours Halidah Ismail (second from left) and Salawiyah Hassan, who support Barisan Nasional, with Rina Triwahyuni, a Perikatan supporter and Latifah Nor Ali. The four friends say their different political opinions do not divide them.

GOMBAK: Having differing political opinions did not stop four women from the same neighbourhood from showing up together on nomination day to show support for their respective candidates.

Housewife Rina Triwahyuni, 50, came from Kampung Seri Gombak Indah to SMK Sungai Pusu, Gombak, bearing a Perikatan Nasional flag.

"I want to show support for Bersatu candidate Muhammad Hilman Idham. I hope he can help steer Selangor to a better path," she said.

Accompanying Rina was her neighbour Latifah Nor Ali, 60.

The pair were spotted sitting by the roadside near the nomination centre with Salawiyah Hassan, 50, and Halidah Ismail, 65, - both wearing a Barisan Nasional shirt.

"Our differences do not divide us. After this election is over, we will still remain friends," said Rina.

Salawiyah, a civil retiree, said she always showed up on nomination day to show support for the Barisan candidate.

"Barisan has done a lot for our country. I feel duty-bound to continue my support for the coalition.

"Although my neighbours and I support different political parties, we are still friends and will meet each other during kenduri," she added.

Nominations for three state seats will take place at SMK Sungai Tua namely Hulu Kelang, Gombak Setia and Sungai Tua.
