"He might not speak much but he's very hardworking. We need a leader like him who is committed in serving the people.

"He does his best to help when people come to him, instead of coming up with excuses or pushing the responsibility around," Liow said in a speech here on Sunday.

Liow also said Wa was a dedicated young man, full of energy and passion, who had been working hard to help develop new villages in Kampar.

As for Chang, Liow said that he was a local boy who understood the needs of the people.

The Kampar parliamentary seat incumbent is DAP's Dr Ko Chung Sen, with Leong Cheok Keng and Chen Fook Chye – also from DAP – the incumbents in the Malim Nawar and Keranji state seats respectively.
