Port Dickson by-election: Syed Saddiq says ready to assist Anwar

KOTA KINABALU: Parti Pribumi Bersatu (Bersatu) Youth chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman said he is ready to help campaign for the Port Dickson by-election to ensure a big victory for Pakatan Harapan (PH).

He said PH's candidate PKR president-elect Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim must be supported so that he is victorious in the by-election.

“Before the 14th general election, I as a member of the Pakatan Harapan presidential council have knowledge that there is a written agreement on a power transition from Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to Anwar and this was agreed to by all parties.

“As a young man, I do not want to break a promise, especially one that is in black and white and of paramount as a win for PH,” he told reporters after attending the “Unlocking The Power Of Young People” progamme, here today.

He also denied that there was a movement to boycott Anwar's campaign in Port Dickson in Bersatu, especially among the Youth wing's members.

Incumbent Port Dickson MP Datuk Danyal Balagopal Abdullah, from PKR, on Wednesday announced that he was vacating his seat to give way to Anwar who is slated to succeed Dr Mahathir as Malaysia's eighth prime minister. — Bernama
