‘Umno seeks to end Muhyiddin’s political career through redelineation’

Umno is hoping that the Electoral Commission’s redelineation exercise will result in the end of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia president Muhyiddin Yassin’s career, Pakatan Harapan claimed.

Johor leaders for DAP, Liew Chin Tong; PKR, Mohd Khuzzan Abu Bakar; and Amanah, Aminolhuda Hassan, cited as proof the 22.24 percent decrease of voters in Muhyiddin’s parliament seat in Pagoh, from 46,793 in 2013, to 36,387 voters.

“The redelineation of Pagoh is politically motivated. It is understood that Pagoh has around 20,000 Umno members.

“By reducing the number of voters in this constituency, Umno is hoping that Muhyiddin’s political career will end in this (13th) parliament,” they said in a joint statement today.

They highlighted how Pagoh, as a parliament seat, has less voters than 14 state seats in Johor, such as Johor Jaya which has 59,041 voters, and Perling which has 55,810 voters.

Meanwhile, they said DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang’s seat Gelang Patah has become the largest parliament seat in the state with 112,081 voters.

The trio said the exercise is clearly meant to keep BN in power, and urged the people of Johor to object to the proposal.
