KUALA SELANGOR: Pakatan Harapan (PH) chairman Anwar Ibrahim hinted last night that Selangor menteri besar Amirudin Shari will be fielded as a candidate for the Gombak parliamentary seat in the general election (GE15).
Amirudin will likely take on former PKR deputy president Azmin Ali, the three-term Gombak MP, who is now with Bersatu.
“That is the duty of Amir (Amirudin), who wants to take care of Gombak. We will send Selangor main’s commander to Gombak, but this is not an official announcement, (an official announcement) will be made on Oct 28,” Anwar said during the Selangor mega Harapan tour here last night
“I have discussed it with Amir and he said ‘I am the commander and I can, insya-Allah, defend it (for PH)’.”
Azmin had previously stated his desire to defend the seat in GE15.
Meanwhile, Amanah president Mohamad Sabu, who also took part in the programme, said he will likely defend his Kota Raja parliamentary seat.-BERNAMA
