Give us a better candidate, PKR

The coming GE15 serves as a golden opportunity for Pakatan Harapan to reclaim Putrajaya and they should ensure they are well prepared to ready to take on any challenges.

However, it is disheartening to still notice that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is still making some choices which to many voters does not seem to make sense.

DAP did the same thing by dropping some very good candidates, especially Charles Santiago in Klang. Fortunately, Charles is a gentleman and instead of resorting to any kind of sabotage, he calmly urged his supporters to rally behind the new candidate.

This shows just how professional Charles is and that he has the interests of the party above himself.

This should be the main focus for all PH parties in the coming GE – to place the interests of the people and the party above all else.

As a veteran voter in Sungai Buloh, I must admit I am greatly distressed over PKR’s decision to drop Sivarasa Rasiah and replace him with the lesser-known Ramanan Ramakrishnan.


The only thing we know about Ramanan is the fact that he was involved in a case when he was in the MIC and was ordered to return a large sum of money to a prominent psychiatrist.

There were serious allegations at that time against Ramanan and he eventually resigned from the MIC.

He then jumped to PKR and apparently moved around closely with Anwar to win favour.

He is no match for Khairy Jamaluddin and PH can safely say they have already lost one seat.

As a voter, it is my concern how Ramanan would possibly match the service record left behind by Sivarasa.

Why is PKR taking such uncalculated gambles at a time when they stand a good chance to win as many seats as possible?

Please Anwar, put all your personal differences away and do what is best for the voters and the party.

If not Sivarasa, then give us a better candidate.

The views expressed here are strictly those of Alex Chung from Sungai Buloh.
