PORT DICKSON: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has appealed to the electorate here to not stay at home and expect their fellow voters to exercise their constitutional right on Saturday (Oct 13).
The Pakatan Harapan candidate for the Port Dickson by-election said they should not take it for granted that he would win the seven-cornered contest.
“Please come out and vote in the morning.
“Do not wait till the evening because it has been raining every evening in recent days,” he said before having breakfast with locals at Mani Curry House in Lukut.
Anwar added that he had big plans for the resort town, which included raising the quality of life of its residents.
“I have been to estates and seen workers who are poor.
“Similarly, I have met Malay and Chinese fishermen who also need help,” he said.
Anwar promised better days ahead for the constituents if elected.
“I will come here and be your family.
”I cannot make you a millionaire but I promise to give you justice and a better future,” he said.
Anwar said the people need to vote for change as there were allegations that past leaders had plundered the nation, citing the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) and Felda scandals which were being investigated.
He also thanked former Port Dickson MP Datuk Danyal Balagopal Abdullah for making a sacrifice by vacating the seat for him.
“He has created history by doing so – and he set only one condition which was to remain here and help me work for the constituents,” said Anwar.
