SUNGAI BESAR: All Barisan Nasional (BN) membersÂ registered in the Sungai Besar Parliamentary constituency must vote early in theÂ by-election for the area to boost the percentage coming out to vote.
In addition, the BN candidate, Budiman Mohd Zohdi said they must ensureÂ their family members and relatives also performed their duty to vote.
“The third factor which can help boost the percentage coming out to vote areÂ the voters staying outside the area.
“The party machinery has a mechanism to lure this group to return to vote onÂ Saturday,” he told Bernama after attending a meeting between Agriculture andÂ Agro-Based Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek and fishermen at Bagan SungaiÂ Besar here, tonight.
The Election Commission (EC) prior to this expected the percentage comingÂ out to vote at the by-election would drop to 75 per cent compared to 88.30 perÂ cent at the 13th general election.
Wanita BN on its part, hoped the percentage coming out to vote would exceedÂ 90 per cent as it had gone all out to help in the campaign for Budiman sinceÂ last month. — BERNAMA
