Tanjung Piai by-election: Gerakan unveils its manifesto

Gerakan today announced its manifesto, in conjunction with the Tanjung Piai by-election, which outlined three key issues to uplift the livelihood of the people in the constituency.

The manifesto was launched at the party’s operations room by its president Datuk Dominic Lau, with Gerakan candidate Wendy Subramaniam.

In the manifesto, Gerakan would focus on three key areas; which are economy and industry, social welfare and safety, and cost of living.

Meanwhile, Wendy said that she would focus on developing the tourism potential of the area in order to attract local and foreign tourists to Tanjung Piai.

“Improving and enhancing the tourism sector is the first thing that I will work on if elected,” she said.

Polling for the by-election is set on Nov 16, following the death of Datuk Dr Md Farid Md Rafik, 42, from Pakatan Harapan (PH) on Sept 21 due to heart complications.

The contest is a six-cornered fight involving PH candidate Karmaine Sardini, BN represented by Jeck Seng; Wendy Subramaniam (Gerakan), Datuk Dr Ir Badhrulhisham Abdul Aziz of Barisan Jemaah Islamiah (Berjasa) and two independent candidates Dr Ang Chuan Lock and Faridah Aryani Abdul Ghaffar.
