‘Moving in Bukit Aman voters may cause Nurul Izzah’s defeat’

‘Moving in Bukit Aman voters may cause Nurul Izzah’s defeat’

The redelineation exercise in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur may see incumbent Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar losing due to an increase in police voters.

DAP Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng at a press conference at Pusat Komuniti Manjalara this morning said this would be due to the heavy police polling district from Segambut being carved out into Lembah Pantai.

Lim said his constituency originally contains the Tasik Perdana polling district in which most of the voters are Bukit Aman federal police headquarters personnel.

However, the Election Commission (EC) has proposed to move the 6,598 voters in Tasik Perdana to Lembah Pantai, a marginal seat won by PKR vice president Nurul Izzah in the last general election, he said.

Lim said although the redrawing would increase his own chances at the polls, it would come at a cost to Nurul Izzah.

“I lost more than 6,000 police votes in the last general election…this proves that the EC is collaborating with Umno, both of them think they can abandon Segambut.

“Removing my 6,000 police votes and throwing them into Nurul Izzah’s constituency.

“Nurul would have lost 6,000 votes before the general election commences,” he said.

He added if this number is combined with Lembah Pantai postal votes, she stands to lose over 10,000 votes prior to polling day.

Segambut is seen as DAP’s fortress, and in 2013 Lim crushed BN Gerakan candidate B.Jayanthi Devi by a 19,111 majority.

However, Nurul Izzah narrowly defended her Lembah Pantai seat with a razor thin 1,847 majority against BN-Umno’s Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin.

Lim said placing Tasik Perdana into Lembah Pantai will help BN regain the seat.

REJECT such a leader!
We cannot afford ridiculously expensive RM55 Billion ECRL!
All that is necessary
for the triumph of evil
is for good men
to do nothing.

When the people
fears their government,
there is TYRANNY;
when the government
fears the people,
there is LIBERTY.
