The Barisan Nasional candidate for the Kuala Besut by-election Tengku Zaihan Che Ku Abd Rahman, 37, pledged to do his best to fulfill the responsibilities as an assemblyman if he win the seat on July 24.
The former Besut Drainage and Irrigation Department district engineer said he understand that he has been trusted with the huge responsibility of carrying the legacy of the BN leadership in Kuala Besut.
"I will continue the service that BN had provided and follow the development plans of the late Dr A Rahman Mokhtar," he said.
He said the fact that he was born in a fishermen family in Kampung Nail here will give him an advantage in wooing the voters.
"Furthermore, I had worked here as the DID district engineer for five years," he said.
The Kampung Pekan Baru Umno Youth committee member said his age should not be an issue as he has the relevant experience to represent the people of Kuala Besut.
"Although I am young, please give me a chance to prove myself as I believe that my stint as the district engineer will put me in good stead to continue with the BN legacy of serving the people here," he said.
The father of four kids aged four to 10 proved that he has no problems with meeting the people when he addressed the 4,000 strong crowd at the Dataran Kuala Besut just after being named as the BN candidate.
The crowd cheered when he chanted "Kuala Besut Semakin Biru", the BN slogan for the by-election.
