Does a negative charge go from lower to higher potential in a uniform negatively charged surface?

So in this problem, we have been given that there are the surfaces which are uniformly charged. So let's say this, this is a positively charged and this is negatively charged surface. And if we talk about a negative church, of course this nature is negative. So it will be repelled by the negative side and it will be attracted by the positive side. So, if we talk about the direction in which this negative church moves, that is from negative to positive. And now, if we talk in terms of potential, generally this positive end is at higher potential with respect to the negative end. So let's say HP denotes the higher potential. L. P. Denotes the lower potential. So it can be very well observed that the negative charge moves from lower potential to higher potential, provided that the region is uniformly charged.
