PM Anwar claims extraordinary support for Pakatan in Kedah ahead of state elections

(MMO) – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said he received a “very good welcome” in Kedah during his visit to the state yesterday.

He said this showed the extraordinary support towards the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition in contrast to PAS secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan’s assertion that the tide favours the Perikatan Nasional (PN) in all six states that will be going to the polls on August 12.

“It was only a political statement, when I was in Kedah last night, I received a very good welcome, we cannot deny that,” he told reporters after officiating a National Economic conference here.

Takiyuddin has been reported saying that the PN wave in all six states will signal the PH-Barisan Nasional “unity government” will lose power soon.

Anwar believed that in the end, voters will choose a stable political party that can drive economic growth and reject extremism.

“We have clearly demonstrated our success in this,” he said.

Penang, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu will be voting in state elections next Saturday.

Early voting is on August 8.
