KUCHING: Lubok Antu MP Jugah Muyang declared that he will be rallying behind PKR deputy presidential candidate Rafizi Ramli who is set to take on Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali in PKR’s next triennial general assembly.
Jugah, who won Lubok Antu on an independent ticket before joining PKR, said Rafizi embodies the spirit of reforms as his work has propelled Pakatan Harapan to win the 14th General Election.
“Most people only know that Rafizi’s Invoke has correctly predicted the outcome of the elections, but Rafizi did more than that. Invoke also assisted many candidates during the run up to May 9 and out of 44 seats that received assistance from Invoke, 42 candidates have won their seats, a stunning 95 per cent success rate,” he said.
Rafizi has also proved his mettle for leadership as he led over 40,000 volunteers, with nearly 26,000 serving as polling agents/counting agents (PACA) during the historic elections.
“While I have huge amounts of respect for all the candidates, Rafizi has worked hard knowing that there are no rewards waiting for him at the end of that journey, as he was barred from contesting in the elections. As selfless as he is, I believe Rafizi is the one that should be by the side of (Datuk Seri) Anwar Ibrahim to helm the party, as catalyst to push forward the agenda of reform of the party. I urge members of PKR to consider these facts,” Jugah said.
Jugah himself will be contesting as the PKR Lubok Antu branch chairman during the branch election on Oct 20.
