PETALING JAYA, Aug 8 — Seri Setia candidate Mohammad Fahmi Ngah is determined to launch his “Smarter Seri Setia” aspiration if he is given the mandate at the August 12 state election.
He said his focus is on digitalising the people, empowering the gig economy and youth, and solving infrastructure problems.
“I’m confident these (initiatives) can be implemented seeing as I have experience in the Smart Selangor Delivery Unit and under (Prime Minister) Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
“With this experience, I’m sure ‘Smarter Seri Setia’ can be implemented, through which the first effort will be to simplify the people’s understanding of Iltizam Selangor Penyayang (ISP).
“There are some who many know (the 47 commitments) but some are still unclear about how to apply for the initiative. I think it would be better if we could access (that information) on a portal or app.
“With all the information available online, it would facilitate applications from the people so they don’t have to visit community service centres,” he said when met at the Seri Setia operations room.
Fahmi also said his other focus is on the gig economy and job opportunities for youth.
He said the gig economy is not limited to e-hailing workers, but encompasses several fields that could amplify returns.
“People may have thought the gig economy during the pandemic was limited to e-hailing, but many people offer their skills on open platforms and earn high incomes,” he said.
Fahmi urged residents in the constituency to vote on August 12 to help him realise the “Smarter Seri Setia” plan, saying the Selangor people are set to receive various benefits if they vote Pakatan Harapan (Harapan).
“If Harapan wins Selangor, we can form a unity government same as at the federal level, making all processes such as fund applications simpler,” he said.
He said support from Seri Setia residents has been encouraging, and that they said they would choose Harapan.
“God willing, as a Seri Setia native, I am determined to develop this area to the best of my ability,” he said.
Fahmi faces Perikatan Nasional, Muda and Independent candidates at the state election on Saturday.
