We are not PH friendly, says PRM candidate

Hafizah Zainuddin, the candidate representing Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM) in the Kuala Kubu Baharu by-election, asserts that PRM has no plans to fragment the Malay votes in the upcoming May 11th Kuala Kubu Bharu by-election.

She asserted that their participation in the by-election isn’t about dividing the Malay votes but rather stems from PRM’s inclusive representation of all ethnicities, including Chinese and Indians.

“We have never been contacted by any party to sponsor us to contest in the by-election. This (contesting) is the decision of the PRM leadership,” she said as reported by Free Malaysia Today.

She acknowledged the decision to contest in the Kuala Kubu Bharu by-election was made abruptly on April 27th, yet she refuted allegations of PRM’s being friendly with Pakatan Harapan.

“If we were friendly, we would have joined the PH coalition long ago, but we still stick to our stance of going solo to uphold our principles.

In the interview, she recalled that her late father-in-law, Ariffin Salimon, a former president of PRM, emphasised the importance of not joining coalitions solely for the sake of victory.

Currently, Pakatan Harapan is endorsing Pang Sock Tao from DAP in the Kuala Kubu Baharu by-election.

It is noteworthy that DAP has maintained control of the Kuala Kubu Baharu since 2013.

A four-way contest is scheduled for May 11 in Kuala Kubu Baharu, featuring DAP’s Pang Sock Tao, Bersatu’s Khairul Azhari Saut, PRM’s Hafizah Zainuddin, and Independent candidate Nyau Ke Xin.
