Those challenging his bid for a first parliamentary seat are former Malaysian Youth Council president Jufitri Joha of Pakatan Harapan, Perikatan Nasional’s Mohd Nazree Mohd Yunus, Ramly Awalludin (Pejuang), and S. Tinagaran (Parti Sosialis Malaysia).
AMPANG – Umno’s number two Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan may be in for a rude shock when election day results are out, as data indicates a possible defeat for him in the Rembau parliamentary seat, said PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli.
Rafizi said data gathered by his technology and data analytics company Invoke Malaysia showed that Negri Sembilan is expected to yield a major surprise that will favour Pakatan Harapan (PH) in the 15th general election (GE15).
His survey, which covered “thousands of voters” found that support for PH today is as strong as when the opposition entered the 2018 national polls.
“In fact, in some states, the support is far superior. And the state that has shown great performance is Negri Sembilan,” he said when addressing some 500 supporters at a mega ceramah here last night.
“If based on the current trend, we are leading in Negri Sembilan, and if things work out, there will be a major surprise coming from the state. So Tok Mat (Mohamad), be careful. Rembau is not safe,” said Rafizi, who will be contesting in Pandan in GE15.
“What’s sadder for Tok Mat is if after tossing Khairy Jamaluddin to Sg Buloh and thinking he is safe, he then goes on to lose Rembau. The support for PH in Negri Sembilan now is better than in 2018.”
