Mastura's sons to meet Kuala Kangsar voters on mum's behalf

pilihanraya kini     12:00 PM    

The sons of Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate Datin Mastura Ahmad Yazid will meet voters on her behalf during the campaigning period.

Mastura's eldest son Wan Emir Astar, 26, said he and his three younger brothers would assist Mastura as she was not able to go to the ground due to 'eddah' (grieving period) after the death of their father and incumbent Datuk Wan Mohammad Khairil Wan Ahmad in a helicoter crash in Sarawak last month.

"We want the people to feel the presence of our mother during the campaign by delivering her vision and mission if she was elected as member of parliament. "All she wants is to continue the legacy of our late father, who was very dedicated towards helping and bringing development to the people of Kuala Kangsar," he said when met at the BN command centre here today.

Also present were his two younger brothers Wan Iskandar, 23, and Wan Muhammad Amar, 19. The architecture student also refuted claims that there were attempts to sabotage their mother, saying that the party machinery had been going all out to ensure BN's victory in the by-election. "We will roll up our sleeves and meet the people to ensure BN can retain the seat and continue the legacy of our father," he said.

The constituency has 32,949 eligible voters, according to the electoral roll released by the Election Commission up to May 7. The Kuala Kangsar by-election will see a four-cornered fight between Mastura, Dr Najihatussalehah Ahmad (Pas), Dr Ahmad Termizi Ramli (Parti Amanah Negara) and an independent candidate Izat Bukhary Ismail Bukhary. Polling is scheduled for June 18 after the nomination yesterday.
