New Straits Times - - NEWS / NATION -

PARTI Pribumi Ber­satu (Ber­satu) Youth chief Syed Saddiq Syed Ab­dul Rah­man said he is ready to cam­paign in the Port Dick­son by-elec­tion to en­sure a big vic­tory for Pakatan Hara­pan.

He said PH’s can­di­date, PKR pres­i­dent-elect Datuk Seri An­war Ibrahim, must be sup­ported so that he would be tri­umphant.

“Be­fore the 14th Gen­eral Elec­tion, I, as a mem­ber of the Pakatan Hara­pan pres­i­den­tial coun­cil, knew that there was a writ­ten agree­ment on the tran­si­tion of power from Tun Dr Ma­hathir Mo­hamad to An­war, and this was agreed to by all par­ties.

“As a young man, I do not want to break a prom­ise, es­pe­cially one that is in black and white,” he said af­ter at­tend­ing the “Un­lock­ing The Power Of Young Peo­ple” progamme here yes­ter­day.

He de­nied that was a move­ment to boy­cott An­war’s cam­paign in Port Dick­son in Ber­satu, es­pe­cially among Youth mem­bers.

In­cum­bent Port Dick­son mem­ber of par­lia­ment Datuk Danyal Balagopal Ab­dul­lah, of PKR, on Wed­nes­day an­nounced that he was va­cat­ing his seat to give way to An­war, who is slated to suc­ceed Dr Ma­hathir as the eighth prime min­is­ter.
