KUALA LUMPUR: The 15th General Election campaign in Titiwangsa was healthy and should be the way forward, said Barisan Nasional candidate Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani.
“For the past 13 days, I think the campaign in Titiwangsa was very intense but smooth and everyone respected each other,”
“We discussed only public issues and it was a very healthy campaign. Everyone respects each other. Certainly, I think this should be the way forward,” he told reporters after casting his vote at SK Taman Maluri, here, today.
Johari also commended the Election Commission (EC) for a smooth election process.
“The EC has recommended voting times to avoid crowding. However, (many) people showed up early because they were worried it might rain later, so perhaps in the next general election, the EC can look into this,” he added.
The former second finance minister arrived at the polling centre 8.55am with his wife, Datin Seri Zurwati Haslinda Zainal Bahry.
He was greeted by Narcotic Crimes Investigation Department director Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay.
Johari is in a four-cornered fight against Pakatan Harapan’s former Shah Alam MP Khalid Abdul Samad, Perikatan Nasional’s Dr Rosni Adam, and Pejuang Datuk Seri Khairuddin Abu Hassan.
Titiwangsa has 80,747 registered voters consisting 72.5 per cent of Malays, 16.4 per cent Chinese, 9.5 per cent Indians and 1.6 per cent of other races.
