PONTIAN, Oct 26 -- Pakatan Harapan (PH) is gearing up its machinery for the Tanjung Piai parliamentary by-election in a bid to ensure that it can retain the seat come Nov 16.
Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Dr Sahruddin Jamal said the matter of PH’s preparedness for the by-election was among the topics discussed at the meeting of the PH Tanjung Piai By-Election Committee with PH election director Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin last night.
"Last night’s meeting was between the Tanjung Piai by-election principal director and portfolio heads, polling district centre heads and heads of Pakatan Harapan machinery.
"The meeting was aimed at ensuring that the PH machinery is 100 per cent ready to work and go about to ensure a Pakatan Harapan victory in Tanjung Piai," said Dr Sahruddin, who is the PH director for the by-election.
He told reporters this after attending the launch of the Pontian district “Kampungku Sihat” programme here today.
Last night’s meeting was also attended by Johor Bersatu chairman Mazlan Bujang, Tanjung Piai Bersatu division chief Karmaine Sardini and Ayer Hitam Bersatu division chief Datuk Osman Sapian.
The by-election was triggered after incumbent MP Datuk Dr Md Farid Md Rafik, 42, who was Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, died of heart complications on Sept 21. Nomination for the by-election is on Nov 2 and polling is on Nov 16.
