Dr M to skip Rantau campaign

Barisan Nasional leaders welcome PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang, seen here embracing Mohamad Hasan, during a ceramah in Rantau last night.

PETALING JAYA: Dr Mahathir Mohamad will not be going to Rantau to help Pakatan Harapan in last-minute campaigning ahead of polling day tomorrow.

It is learnt that the PH chairman, who had made appearances during the Port Dickson, Cameron Highlands and Semenyih by-elections, would not be able to do so in Rantau, where PKR’s Dr S Streram is up against Umno heavyweight Mohamad Hasan.

A source told FMT that the prime minister’s schedule was packed.

Mahathir had also missed the Seri Setia, Balakong and Sungai Kandis by-election campaigns, all of which PH won.
