PKR polls: Branch youth candidate fumes as name missing from list


(Bernama) – The Sungai Petani PKR branch Youth election was marred by a missing name in the list of its candidates.

Supporters of S. Arvind Kumar – a candidate for the post of youth chief – began protesting when his name was not in the list on the grounds that he was ineligible to contest.

The protest began when Arvind Kumar discovered his name was not in the list when he arrived at the polling station in the Orang Ramai Seri Wangi Hall here on Saturday.

“I was not officially notified on my ineligibility to contest. What hurt me most was my involvement in an intense campaigning over the past one week.

“I was understandably shocked when informed that my name was not in the list of candidates,” he said.
