Unity govt parties deploy strategies ahead of Kuala Kubu Baharu by-election

BAGAN DATUK, April 20 — Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the parties in the Unity Government have their methods for ensuring a win in the Kuala Kubu Baharu by-election next month.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman, said this was discussed at the Unity Government secretariat meeting on Wednesday.

“…certainly each party within the Unity Government has its methods to ensure the victory of our candidate,” Ahmad Zahid, who is also Umno president, told reporters at the Bagan Datuk Parliamentary Aidilfitri Open House event here last night.

The event held at the Umno Bagan Datuk complex was attended by over 8,000 people.

He was responding to MCA’s statement that the party would not be campaigning in the by-election if the chosen candidate was not from BN.

MCA decided on this at the party’s political development committee at the party’s headquarters yesterday.

MIC, another component party of BN, was also reported to have said that it would not join the by-election campaign if the candidate was not from BN.

The Kuala Kubu Baharu seat became vacant on March 21, following the death of its incumbent, Lee Kee Hiong, from DAP.

The Election Commission (EC) has set polling day for May 11, while nomination and early voting will be on April 27 and May 7, respectively.
