Dr Wan Azizah: Don't forget the sacrifice made by the Permatang Pauh electorate

Newly elected Permatang Pauh Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was today reminded of the sacrifices made by the people in the parliamentary constituency and not to forget their deeds.

Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said that the people of Permatang Pauh had sacrificed much to look after Anwar’s family all this while and yet did not ask for any favours when she was the MP for the constituency.

Dr Wan Azizah - who was the former Permatang Pauh MP from 1999 before stepping down on July 31 to enable Anwar, who is also her husband, to contest the seat - said this at a thanksgiving with the Wanita PKR machinery at Yayasan Aman, here.

Meanwhile in his speech, Anwar, who is also the PKR advisor, reminded Penang Deputy Chief Minister Muhammad Fairus Khairuddin to go down to grassroot level more often to look into the problems of the people.

Anwar said although the State Assemblyman for Penanti was busy with state business, he must spend time to meet the people in his constituency and the feedback received was that the young PKR leader was seldom seen in his constituency since winning in the general election in March.
“I’m worried because the people have never complained openly, and they have asked me to advise Fairus. Although we are busy, we must spend time to meet the constituents because they will understand if we are busy, but they cannot accept it when we don’t get down to the 'ground'." Anwar said Fairus, when met later, said he accepted the criticism in a positive manner and would endeavour to improve his service to the people not only in Penanti, but the whole state of Penang.

He said he was spending much time with Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng in drawing up state administration programmes for the past five months, and if the people had any problems, they could seek assistance at his service centre in Tanah Liat. — BERNAMA
