TUMPAT – Tumpat Umno division acting chief Datuk Mohd Rosdi Abdul Aziz is not worried about facing PAS in Pengkalan Kubor by-election.
“Our preparation is based on Barisan Nasional’s (BN) strength and not PKR or PAS because they are the same,” he said after launching a community programme here, Monday.
The election machinery wants to continue the legacy of Datuk Noor Zahidi Omar, the late state assemblyman and Tumpat Umno division chief.
“They want to dedicate the BN win to Noor Zahidi who served the people well,” he added.
The Pengkalan Kubor state by-election is being held following the death of Noor Zahidi,57, from liver cancer in China on August 20.
At the last general election, Noor Zahidi (BN) beat Saharun Ibrahim (PKR) and Izat Bukhary Ismail Bukhary (independent) with majority of 1,736 votes.
The Election Commission (EC) has set Sept 13 for nomination with Sept 25 for polling. – Bernama
