KUALA LUMPUR – Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate for the Kuala Kangsar parliamentary by-election, Datin Mastura Yazid, is confident of gaining the fence-sitters’ support at the polling day tomorrow.
She said some of the fence-sitters she met had already pledged their support for the BN at the by-election.
“I know them, I’m confident that they will give their support to the BN,” she told a press conference at her home here today.
Nevertheless, Mastura said she was too nervous to anticipate the outcome of the by-election, which will begin at 8 am at 23 polling centres, tomorrow.
“I cannot get too comfortable until 5 pm tomorrow,” she said.
Meanwhile, Mastura also expressed hope to be given the chance to continue her husband’s legacy in Kuala Kangsar.
She said the voters should make a clear decision on their aspiration to see continuous development in the constituency.
“Give me a chance to make the aspiration a reality. We know what we want for Kuala Kangsar and I promise to be with the voters to make it happen,” she said.
In response to the presence of banners meant to tarnish her image, Mastura said she had seen it coming as it was normal during any election campaign.
“What is more important is for the BN machinery to stay united to achieve victory. They have worked so hard and I truly appreciate it,” she said.
The Kuala Kangsar by-election is being held following the death of its incumbent, who was also Mastura’s husband, Datuk Wan Mohammad Khair-il Annuar Wan Ahmad, in a helicopter crash in Sebuyau, Sarawak on May 5.
It sees a four-cornered fight between BN, PAS, Amanah and Independent candidates. – BERNAMA
