State polls: Come out and vote, not too late to make a difference, says Nurul Izzah


PETALING JAYA: With about two hours left before polling ends for the state polls, Nurul Izzah Anwar has urged voters to come out and vote.

In a message posted on her team’s Twitter handle @teamnurulizzah, the PKR vice-president said it is not too late to make a difference.

“It is still not too late for you to go out and vote and make a difference. Come, friends!” the former Permatang Pauh MP said on Saturday (Aug 12).

Earlier today, Puchong MP Yeo Bee Yin has sent out an SOS alert urging Selangor voters to go cast their votes as the turnout rate is still low in the state.
