ROMPIN: The Pahang state government has been urged to declare a two-day holiday for the state assembly election in Tioman, to be held on Dec 7.
The Perikatan Nasional candidate, Nor Idayu Hashim said polling is on a Wednesday, a working day.
“Declaring a two-day holiday from Tuesday will encourage out-of-town voters to return home and vote,” she said while making her campaign rounds at Pantai Hiburan here today.
Polling in the state seat was postponed from Nov 19 after the PN candidate Md Yunus Ramli, 61, died of a heart attack on polling day.

A new coalition state government has been formed by Barisan Nasional (which won 16 state assembly seats) and Pakatan Harapan (8). Perikatan Nasional won 17 seats, comprising 15 won by PAS and 2 by Bersatu.
Nor Idayu said she was prepared to play the role of an effective opposition if elected by the people.
Pahang PN chairman Saifuddin Abdullah said he was optimistic that Nor Idayu, the sole woman candidate, could triumph in the constituency, which is regarded as a BN stronghold.
“Going by the fact that PN’s Abdul Khalib Abdullah won the Rompin parliamentary seat, I am confident that we can win in Tioman,” he added.

Nor Idayu is involved in a five-cornered fight with Mohd Johari Hussain of BN (who seeks re-election), Osman A. Bakar (Pejuang), Mohd Fadzli Mohd Ramly (PH) and independent candidate Sulaiman Bakar.
Tioman, which forms part of the Rompin parliamentary constituency, has 28,465 voters, comprising 28,200 ordinary voters, 262 police personnel and three absentee voters abroad.
