Speaking on the Pakatan Harapan chances in the Tanjung Piai by-election in Johor, prime-minister-to-be reminded the voters how tough it is to run a government.

He said PH faces an uphill task in the by-election if it were to be judged after one year in power.

“We acknowledge there are challenges because the people are not measuring us based on the previous (government) if they did that we will win, but they are measuring us based on the one and a half years we have been in power.

“But I believe, God willing, if they understand how difficult it is for us to run the administration today, they will provide support,” he reportedly told reporters.

He said the people could understand how difficult it was for the government to run the current administration, “they would support its endeavour.”

However, he also said the PH government and its leaders should not expect the people to continue supporting the regime if it was unable to generate positive economic growth.

“Sometimes the information does not reach (the people), so it is our duty to convey it to the people so that they get the real picture of government leadership today,” he said.

Anwar said the Justice Party or PKR “should return its focus to the people, the problems of poverty, as well as helping the government generate economic growth.

“I want the party members not to forget, especially when we have formed the government, that we get preoccupied with positions, influence, power… we must remember that the party was formed to uphold the interests of the people,” he said.

He was speaking at one-day convention that was attended by 800 PKR members from across the state.

The PH is facing an uphill battle to get the voters on its side in the Tanjung Piai parliamentary by-election. It is being held after the death of Dr Md Farid Md Rafik, 42, of Bersatu.

The latter succumbed to heart complications at the Pontian Hospital on Sept 21. /TISGFollow us on Social Media
