Gan’s trusted companion: Four years and still going strong.

SHE might be an elected representative of the state, but Rawang assemblyman Gan Pei Nei still prefers to keep it simple in every aspect of her life.

Apart from her new role, everything else remains the same. Transportation for her is still a Modenas Kriss 110cc motorcycle, a trusted companion that she’s has had for the past four years.

“I prefer riding a motorcycle as it’s easier to manoeuvre through traffic jams and of course the view is always much better,” said Gan.

During the election, Gan, who used to live in Section 5, travelled daily on her motorcycle to give ceramahs.

“The only inconvenience is when it rains or there is lightning, otherwise it’s a pretty comfortable ride,” said Gan who currently resides in Rawang.

“But I personally feel that riding a motorcycle makes me more approachable to the people here,” said Gan.

The PKR candidate won the state seat with 10,467 votes against BN’s Goh Ai Ling who got 6,275 seats and independent candidate Chandrasegaran Arumugam who secured 704 votes.

She joined PKR in 2004 and headed the PKR service centre in Batu before being asked to set up a PKR branch in Rawang early this year.
