Apart from mingling with members of the public and traders at the famous market, which operates only from 6am till noon on Sunday, the candidates also distributed pamphlets on their parties’ messages and what they could offer the voters.

Dr Chang, who is contesting for the Likas seat, said despite being a new face in Sabah politics, he was glad with the public acceptance.

“The campaign today went very smoothly, the public acceptance was good. I will also campaign through social media so that the people in Likas will know me better,” said Dr Chang, who is a dentist. — Bernama
