He stated that this was determined by the number of voters in their hometowns in other states who work and live in Selangor.

“There are a large number of Malaysians who work and reside in the state of Selangor but vote in their hometowns located in other states,” he said.

“Therefore, the Selangor state government has decided to declare a public holiday on Friday, Nov 18, 2022, a day before polling day,” added Amirudin.

The minister also called upon Primi Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob to declare 18th November a public holiday nationwide so more voters can perform their civic duty and vote.

“Following the automatic voter registration and the lowered age limit for voters, Selangor has the highest number of voters nationwide at 3,677,848,” Amirudin said in a statement on Wednesday (9th November).

Aside from that, Amirudin also announced a contribution of 20 Smart Selangor busses starting Thursday (10th November) to facilitate commuters affected by the Kelana Jaya LRT Line disruption. 

The sever-day LRT disruption affected as many as 16 stations, closed from 9th until 15th November 2022.
