Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim may leave his Permatang Pauh seat and contest in Perak or Selangor instead.
“There is a likelihood, but it means… I haven’t made a definite decision because there have been suggestions that I should go down to Perak or Selangor, and I’m weighing the possibility of going down to Perak,” he said today, in response to media questions at a press conference in PKR’s headquarters.
Anwar (picture) did not say, however, who would replace him in Permatang Pauh.
When asked whether PKR vice president Nurul Izzah Anwar would replace him in his current constituency, he said: “She’s focused on Lembah Pantai, why disturb her? Let (Datuk Raja) Nong Chik alone disturb her ok lah,” he said.
Anwar also announced five PKR candidates who would contest in Sarawak.
They are Baru Bian in Limbang, Ali Biju in Saratok, Roland Engan in Barak, Abun Sui in Ulu Rejang, and Abang Zulkifli Abang Engkeh in Batang Lupar.
