Politics

Subang is one of the biggest constituencies in Selangor and is a diverse area comprising people from various racial, religious and social backgrounds. The former Member of Parliament for this constituency was Tan Sri K.S. Nijhar. In the 2008 general election, Sivarasa Rasiah of Parti Keadilan Rakyat was elected as the Member of Parliament for Subang, defeating his opponent by a 6,000 vote majority.[2] Following a redelineation exercise in 2004, the Subang constituency now has three state seats - Bukit Lanjan, Kota Damansara and Paya Jaras. Representatives who win the state seat sit in the Selangor State Assembly.

State Seats

Bukit Lanjan

Bukit Lanjan has a population of about 50,000. Of the total number, 25% are in the lower-income group residing in Kampung Sungai Kayu Ara and the Pelangi Damansara low-cost flats. The upper-income group makes up about 35% of the population in areas like Bandar Utama, Damansara Perdana and Bandar Sri Damansara, while the remaining 40% is the middle-income group.

The most common complaints from the residents in the constituency are about the infrastructure - the upgrading and maintenance of drains, roads and fields - and security matters such as car thefts and house break-ins. There's also the constant traffic congestion in areas like where the 1 Utama Shopping Centre and Ikea are located, and the roadside hawker issue at Bandar Sri Damansara.

Paya Jaras

The Paya Jaras state constituency, meanwhile, has a population of nearly 70,000. The population comprises 60% Malays, 30% Chinese and 10% Indians.

Paya Jaras has a mix of traditional villages and a new village, as well as a number of residential areas. The middle to upper-class areas are Bukit Rahman Putra, Sierramas and Valencia, while the middle-class area is in areas like Aman Puri and Taman Ehsan. The lower-income residents are found in Aman Puri and Matang Jaya.

Issues that are of concern to residents are the maintenance of infrastructure like streetlights, roads and drains, public transport in smaller villages and minor floods during heavy downpours as a result from river overflows.
