KLANG - The well-liked personality of Kuala Selangor MP Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad played a crucial role in him securing the highest votes for the National Leadership Committee of Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) for the 2023-2026 session.

According to Rozilawati Mohd Talib, the Chief of Amanah Women's Wing (AWAN)in the Port Dickson district of Negeri Sembilan, the newly-minted Health Minister was also seen as an approachable leader.

"He has a 'soft-spoken' character, his way of communication, his manner of reprimanding is very civilized, so we, the members, feel well-treated under his leadership.

"I also see his reappointment as the Minister of Health as a factor in why he received the highest votes," she told Sinar today following the announcement of the top 27 results.

Meanwhile, when asked about why Datuk Seri Mohamad Sabu, popularly known as Mat Sabu, did not receive votes in the top five, Rozilawati declined to comment.

"The high number of votes he received, 900 out of 1,000, also reflects the expectations from Amanah members," said the representative from Kelantan.

Regarding Mat Sabu's eighth position, Hisham said that representatives might be seeking a fresh perspective within the party.

"They want to see if there will be new partnerships to further strengthen the party as we approach the upcoming 16th General Election (PRU16)," he said.

Earlier, Dr Dzulkefly, who also serves as the party's Strategic Director, received 900 votes.
