Noh’s absence gave me victory -Zulkafperi


KUALA SELANGOR: Tanjong Karang’s new Member of Parliament, Datuk Dr. Zulkafperi Hanapi admitted that the absence of Tan Sri Noh Omar as a candidate was an advantage and a factor in the victory in the Barisan Nasional (BN) stronghold.

He, who represents Perikatan Nasional (PN), said that the clash with the Selangor BN Chairman in the 14th General Election (GE14) was not in his favor when he lost with a majority of 1,970 votes.

“However, the 15th General Election (GE15) this time is not contested by Noh, which is a big advantage for me.

“Armed with the spirit of struggle and known to the local people, victory is on my side to sow the best in this Parliament,” he said when met around Tanjong Karang here, today.

Yesterday, Zulkafperi Hanapi captured the seat with a majority victory of 2,180 votes by defeating the BN candidate, Datuk Habibah Mohd. Yusof (15,874) and Siti Rahayu Baharin from Pakatan Harapan (PH) (12,314).

Also defeated was the candidate of Gerakan Tanah Air (GTA), Azlan Sani Zawawi or Lando who obtained 3,557 votes while the Independent candidate, Mohd. Rosni Mastol with 1,406 votes.

Zulkafperi explained that he was initially set to run for the Sungai Buloh parliamentary seat.

“However, I was asked by the party’s top leadership at the last minute to remain competing in Tanjong Karang.

“Alhamdulillah, I am grateful that everything went smoothly including the campaign process which was solidly supported by the Pas Tanjong Karang machinery,” he said.

He added that the principle now is to fully serve the people, especially to further strengthen the agricultural sector in the parliament.

“In addition, I want to build an Urban Transformation Center (UTC) to further stimulate the existing economic and infrastructure sectors.

“I don’t want Tanjong Karang to be labeled a ‘cowboy’ town when there is a lot of development potential that can be implemented, especially to become an agricultural hub and rice fields in Selangor,” he said.

Meanwhile, Habibah said, she accepted the people’s decision and had done her best throughout the campaign period.

“I also apologize to all parties if I made a mistake before,” he said.

For the record, Noh defended the P095 seat for six terms from 1995 through GE9 to GE14. – MESSENGER
