PETALING JAYA, Aug 23 — Pakatan Harapan (PH) candidate for Seri Setia Halimey Abu Bakar promised today to push for better infrastructure in the Selangor seat if elected in the September 8 by-election.
Halimey said his priority would be to develop and improve the infrastructure for young children in the working class suburban area.
“Based on my observation, there are many infrastructures, especially those involving kindergartens, that still need to be improved,” he said.
Halimey added that other facilities such as public libraries and community halls needed to be upgraded or refurbished.
“The same could be said for our public libraries where internet connectivity is an issue and the need to introduce the latest (digital) application should be given attention too.
“I also suggest that community halls and multipurpose halls be utilised as tuition centres. This can help students, especially those living in low-cost flats, to study in a more spacious and comfortable environment,’’ he said.
Apart from pledging to add more study spaces, Halimey said he would push for more volunteers and tutors to man these spaces to help the students in their studies.
