PETALING JAYA - Even with polling day set on a Wednesday, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad says the timing can still suit the Opposition because it “can be everywhere”.
The Pakatan Harapan chairman even quipped that he could be in three places at the same time.
On a more serious note, he said setting polling day on a weekday would be troublesome for those who are working, especially abroad.
He added that while village folk could cast their votes, it would be difficult for those working in Singapore and elsewhere.
“We have about 500,000 Malaysians working in Singapore. They should be voting but now they are deprived of their right,” he told a press conference at the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia Gallery at Yayasan Selangor here yesterday.
