Pendang parliamentary seat hopeful Wan Saiful Wan Jan shared on his Facebook a photo taken with Daim Zainuddin who dropped by the PPBM parliamentary operations centre today to express his support.
The former finance minister was said to have met with locals and members of the media in a visit which lasted about 30 minutes. He then headed back to the airport in Alor Setar, about 30 minutes away, to catch the next flight home to Kuala Lumpur.
Daim was said to have told the locals that they needed to vote for Pakatan Harapan to “save the country”, reminding them of how Dr Mahathir Mohamad had led the nation over his 22 years as prime minister.
“Come May 9, vote in PH. Our hope is in these three here,” he said, referring to Wan Saiful, Sungai Tiang state seat candidate Abdul Razak Khamis and Tokai state seat candidate Mohd Firdaus Jaafar.
