HULU KELANG: Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari has indicated that he might defend the Sungai Tua seat in the Aug 12 state polls.
“Please don’t forget about me in Sungai Tua,” he said during his speech at the launch of Pakatan Harapan machinery in Hulu Kelang in Taman Melawati, Selangor on Wednesday (July 19).
However, in a press conference after the event, the caretaker Selangor Mentri Besar declined to confirm his candidacy.
“Yes, I would like to contest in Sungai Tua again, but the decision rests with the party president,” he said, adding that he would respect the final decision made on the matter.
Sungai Tua is one of three state seats under the Gombak parliament in Selangor.
The other two state constituencies are Hulu Kelang and Gombak Setia.
Amirudin, who is also Selangor Pakatan Harapan chairman, said the coalition will field candidates from Parti Amanah Negara, PKR and Barisan Nasional in the three seats.
StarMetro recently learned that Hulu Kelang will go to Amanah, while Gombak Setia and Sungai Tua will go to Umno and PKR, respectively.
Also present at the launch were Pakatan deputy chairman and Amanah president Datuk Seri Mohamad Sabu, Selangor Umno liaison chairman Datuk Megat Zulkarnain Omardin, Selangor Amanah chairman Izham Hashim and Selangor DAP assistant secretary Jamaliah Jamaluddin.
