Azmin Ready To Meet With Hadi To Discuss On By-Election Candidates
SABAK BERNAM, May 21 – PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali is prepared to meet with PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang to discuss on candidates to be fielded in the two by-elections to be held next month. The Selangor Menteri Besar said he had already met with PAS deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man and PAS election director Datuk Mustafa Ali to discuss on the issue.
“I have also met with Amanah leaders and Penang chief minister (Lim Guan Eng). Talks are progressing positively and I hope the choice on the candidates will be finalised soon,” he told reporters after launching the SmartSelangor Food Stamp programme here, Friday.
Mohamed Azmin said this when asked to comment on PAS’ insistence to field the party’s candidates in the Sungai Besar, Selangor and Kuala Kangsar, Perak parliamentary seats. On Thursday, the media reported that PAS had shortlisted six candidates, three for each by-election, to be screened by PAS Dewan Ulama.
The parliamentary seats of Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar fell vacant following the death of incumbents, Datuk Noriah Kasnon and Datuk Wan Mohammad Khair-il Anuar Wan Ahmad, in a helicopter crash in Sebuyau, Sarawak, on May 5. The by-elections will be held simultaneously on June 18, while nomination day has been fixed on June 5.
