USE the Sungai Bakap by-election to explain plans and agenda for the people, and not to fan religious hatred, Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail reminded the opposition.

The PKR secretary-general, speaking at an event in Sungai Bakap last night, said voters should not support any party that relies on religious agenda.

“Election campaigning means both parties go up against each other with their policies, plans, agenda when they get the right to administrate and what are their efforts to help the people.

“Elections are not the venue for us to say ‘Choose us and it means you’re a Muslim and if you don’t, you’re not our kin’. You can’t do that. This isn’t about determining voter’s beliefs but about how we run the country,” he was reported as saying in Bernama.

The by-election on July 6 will see Pakatan Harapan candidate Joohari Ariffin in a straight fight with Perikatan Nasional’s Abidin Ismail.

Saifuddin, who is also the home minister, urged voters to support Joohari so that Sungai Bakap benefits.

“... insya-Allah there’ll be a lot of advantages if Sungai Bakap voters elect the unity government candidate as there are many executive councillors in the state government who can help out, along with those at the federal level,” he said. – June 23, 2024.
