PORT DICKSON: Although Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is recuperating from an illness, it didn’t stop him from travelling to the coastal town and lend his support to Pakatan Harapan candidate Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia president arrived in the evening to join a special prayer for Pakatan Harapan’s victory.

A total of 300 people attended the session which began after Maghrib and ended at 9pm. It was followed by a ceramah sessions by Anwar, Muhyiddin and Bersatu chief for Negri Sembilan Tan Sri Dr Rais Yatim.

Muhyiddin was on medical leave for one month following an operation to remove a growth on his pancreas in Singapore in July.

It was previously reported that he was required to undergo chemotherapy for six months following the operation.

The by-election sees Anwar in a seven-corner fight with former Negri Sembilan menteri besar Tan Sri Samad, among others.

While analysts claimed that he stands a high chance of winning, poor voter turnout has been cited as a likelihood this Saturday that could affect the expected margin. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
