DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang said voters in Port Dickson have the historic chance of being represented by the future prime minister of Malaysia.
In a speech to some 200 people, mainly Chinese residents, at Medan Selera Lukut in Port Dickson this morning, he urged for a high turnout on polling day, saying voters had the historic opportunity of voting for an MP who would become the next prime minister.
“Lukut and Port Dickson have become famous recently, being mentioned in the newspapers every day. But we don’t want to be famous for a short period only to be forgotten after the by-election.
“If our MP for Port Dickson is the future prime minister within a few years, Lukut and Port Dickson will become among the most important places in the country,” Lim said.
At the ‘ceramah‘, the elderly patrons greeted Lim happily, eagerly snapping photos and asking for selfies.
Anwar, who is the Pakatan Harapan candidate, is contesting Port Dickson in a seven-cornered fight in a bid to return to Parliament.
The other candidates are PAS’ Mohd Nazari Mokhtar and independents Tan Sri Isa Samad, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, Stevie Chan, Kan Chee Yuen and Lau Seck Yan.
Polling day for the Port Dickson by-election is on Oct 13.
