TUMPAT – The Terengganu Umno machinery is taking the approach of campaigning door-to-door to meet voters for the Pengkalan Kubor by-election on Sept 25.
Terengganu Umno Liaison Committee chairman Datuk Ahmad Razif Abd Rahman said Terengganu Umno which is assigned to Tujoh polling district centre (PDM) has identified all voters they want to meet.
“We have the experience of retaining Barisan Nasional victory in the Kuala Besut state seat by-election on July 24 last year.
“We will adopt the same method and experience to ensure we do not make mistakes and to secure BN win with a bigger majority in Pengkalan Kubor,” he said.
Ahmad Razif who is also Terengganu Menteri Besar was speaking to reporters after a Terengganu Umno machinery meeting at Tujoh PDM here.
He said Terengganu Umno will explain to Pengkalan Kubor voters among others the role of the BN government in bringing development to the people.
In the by-election, BN candidate Mat Razi Mat Ail, 48, will be opposed by Wan Rosdi Wan Ibrahim, 56, of PAS and independent candidate Izat Bukhary Ismail Bukhary, 47.
The by-election was held following the death of incumbent Datuk Noor Zahidi Omar of BN on Aug 20.
In the 13th general election last year, Noor Zahidi defeated PKR’s Shaharun Ibrahim and Izat Bukhary who also contested as an independent candidate with a majority of 1,736 votes. – BERNAMA
