Rafizi claims survey shows Kelantan ready for a change of regime

ECONOMY Minister Rafizi Ramli said a survey that he carried out shows the people of Kelantan are open to change, adding that Kelantan is showing trends that are different from Pakatan Harapan (PH)-governed states.

According to him, he has been doing such surveys since 2016 and 2023 shows a historic reverse in the state controlled by the PAS for three decades.

“Throughout my surveys since 2016, this is the first time in history that 57% express dissatisfaction with the state government’s administration [PAS/Perikatan Nasional(PN)].

“Meanwhile, only 43% are satisfied. Compared to other states under PH or other governments, Kelantan is the only state where more people are dissatisfied than satisfied,” the Pandan MP wrote on his Twitter account last night (July 28).

The campaign for the state elections is hitting a peak this weekend with the upcoming nomination day today in the six states – Kelantan, Kedah, Terengganu, Penang, Negri Sembilan and Selangor.

There are 245 seats up for grabs as the PH-BN pact takes on PN in the six states.

The stakes are high and Rafizi said if the result from the ballot boxes shows a trend for change in Kelantan, the PAS government must consider whether in 33 years of governance with changing leadership, the situation in Kelantan has truly improved.

“Have the people of Kelantan received the best? What are the economic plans of PAS/PN for the people of Kelantan?” he questioned. – July 29, 2023
