Sun­gai Kan­dis res­i­dents want ap­proach­able rep

New Straits Times - - NEWS / NATION -

SHAH ALAM: Sun­gai Kan­dis res­i­dents want an elected rep­re­sen­ta­tive who is ac­ces­si­ble and will solve their prob­lems.

“Res­i­dents have been com­plain­ing about pot­holes and heavy ve­hi­cles that dam­age the roads,” busi­ness­woman Norha­siva Maza­lan, 34, told the New Straits Times yes­ter­day.

“The roads are small, and heavy ve­hi­cles are caus­ing con­ges­tion and pos­ing a threat to mo­tor­cy­clists.

“I hope the new as­sem­bly­man will get the au­thor­i­ties to ad­dress these is­sues.”

Norha­siva’s views were shared by Ram­beli Has­san, 42.

“We want the roads to be fixed, es­pe­cially the pot­holes.

“And the au­thor­i­ties should ban heavy ve­hi­cles from pass­ing by this route,” said Ram­beli.

Long-time res­i­dent Za­harin Tugimim, 53, said he was hop­ing for an elected rep­re­sen­ta­tive who was ac­ces­si­ble to the pub­lic.

“Do not be a leader who dis­ap­pears right af­ter win­ning the seat. We want an ap­proach­able leader who will work for the peo­ple.

“I be­lieve it would be eas­ier to com­mu­ni­cate with a lo­cal elected rep­re­sen­ta­tive who is fa­mil­iar with our prob­lems and can be con­tacted eas­ily.

“If we can­not meet him at his of­fice, we can al­ways find him at his house.

“But, it is also not an is­sue if the can­di­date is an out­sider, as long as he or she strives to do the best for the peo­ple.”
