TTF: Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim expressed shock over the “overwhelming” number of voters who lived away from Port Dickson (see news item below).
However, he may be equally shocked this Saturday when he discovers the voter turnout to be low.
TTF is made to understand that a significant number of Port Dickson voters are cheesed off with him for having triggered a by-election so soon after the 14th general election.
We’re told that some vowed to stay away from the polling booth after expressing disgust with him, suggesting that these voters are neither willing to vote for him or even Tan Sri Isa Samad, former Negri Sembilan menteri besar.
However, a low turnout is likely to work in Isa’s favour.
According to word received, even if Anwar were to win the election, his majority will be low enough to hurt his credibility as future Prime Minister.
Sources from camp Mahathir have more or less confirmed that Anwar is not the Prime Minister in waiting and is due to face some jail time.
TTF is made to understand that both Patriot and the military are against Anwar and firmly in Isa’s favour.
PORT DICKSON: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim expressed shock over the “overwhelming” number of outstation voters from the Port Dickson constituency.
Anwar, who is the Pakatan Harapan candidate vying against six other contenders, implored all voters to come home before polling day.
There are more than 11,000 Port Dickson voters living in other states including Johor as as well as Singapore.
“I am shocked to learn about the sheer number of voters living outside Port Dickson.
“There are those working Pasir Gudang, Johor; Singapore, Klang Valley, Senawang, Seremban and Nilai.
“So many of them are living outside Port Dickson. So please help me tell them to come back,” Anwar said in a ceramah during one of his campaign trails in Lukut tonight.
The Port Dickson by-election was called after incumbent Datuk Danyal Balagopal Abdullah vacated the seat to make way for Anwar’s return to parliament.
Anwar is currently locked in a seven-cornered battle which contenders include former Negri Sembilan menteri besar Tan Sri Isa Samad and the PKR president-elect’s former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
Polling is on Saturday.
