KUALA LUMPUR: Pas information chief, Nasrudin Hassan, has urged the party’s supporters to reject PKR’s Mohd Zawawi Ahmad Mughni who is contesting in the Sungai Kandis by-election.
Pas, said Nasrudin, will campaign to ensure that Pakatan Harapan is defeated in the by-election.
“This is our stand. We believe that if PH wins in Sungai Kandis, it will serve to show that even with their failure to fulfil the promises they made in the 14th General Election, they would still be accepted.
“We want PH to lose in Sungai Kandis. This is my stand.
“This is the question I am posing to Pas voters in Sungai Kandis. If we are indifferent, then PH wins,” he told the crowd during the Himpunan Kebangkitan Ummah gathering at Kelab Sultan Sulaiman, on Sunday.
The gathering was attended by around 300 non-governmental organisations and 2,000 people.
Also present was Barisan Nasional’s candidate for the Sungai Kandis by-election, Datuk Lokman Noor Adam.
The by-election was called after the seat’s incumbent, Mat Shuhaimi Shafiei, 50, died of lymphoma cancer on July 2.
