Outgoing Klang MP Charles Santiago has urged his supporters to rally behind Kota Kemuning assemblyperson V Ganabatirau, whom DAP has chosen to take his place in the 15th general election (GE15).

In a statement to his supporters, Charles expressed certainty that Ganabatirau shares his and his electorate’s ideals.

“I am sure my successor shares the same dream for this country of ours. And just like I did, he too needs your support. I know many of you are upset that I am not fielded again but I know we are better than the anger.

“We are at a crucial time, where each of our votes counts. And therefore, I humbly request that you cast your vote for a Pakatan Harapan government.


“My heartfelt good wishes go out to Ganabatirau Veraman as he campaigns for your support,” Charles said in a statement last night, soon after DAP announced its decision to field Ganabatirau in Klang.

The announcement puts to rest weeks of speculation on whether the water rights activist-turned-lawmaker would be given the opportunity to serve his fourth term as Klang MP.

During this period, several grassroots groups in Klang have openly expressed support for Charles and urged DAP to allow him to defend his seat. – Malaysiakini
