Anwar also said the public has a duty to be critical of elected PH representatives who act inappropriately.

“If any ministers who act arrogantly or say something that is not right, we must tell them. This is because we want to them to be good leaders

“The ministers would not be ministers if the people don't support them,” he said.

Anwar also advised out-of-town visitors to be mindful of the traffic tomorrow and advised them to limit their movement as to facilitate Port Dickson voters
