BN, Harapan to hold mega ceramah in Semenyih tomorrow
SEMENYIH POLLS | Both Pakatan Harapan and BN are set to stage large ceramah sessions tomorrow, in the run-up to polling for the Semenyih by-election on Saturday.
According to a poster being circulated on the campaign trail, Harapan chairperson Dr Mahathir Mohamad will be speaking at Taman Pelangi at 9pm.
Meanwhile, Umno and PAS are holding a joint ceramah at Bandar Bukit Mahkota, which is slated to begin at 7pm.
The poster states that acting Umno president Mohamad Hasan will share the stage with PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.
However, despite the two-hour head start, the itinerary for the Umno-PAS event also includes maghrib and ishak prayers, which typically conclude at around 9pm.
The by-election for the Selangor seat was triggered by the death of Harapan incumbent Bakhtiar Mohd Nor on Jan 11.
It will witness a four-cornered fight among the late Bakthiar's son-in-law Muhammad Aiman Zainali, BN's Zakaria Hanafi, PSM' Nik Aziz Afiq Abdul and independent candidate Kuan Chee Heng.
Early voting took place yesterday, with the Election Commission recording a 78 percent turnout.
