Bersatu Women submits names of six candidates for Malacca polls


Bersatu Women chief Rina Harun said it has submitted the names of six candidates to contest in the Malacca state election.

Rina (above), who is also the women, family and community development minister, said the names of the six, who are new and local faces, were submitted to Perikatan Nasional (PN) chairperson Muhyiddin Yassin for consideration.

"We hope Bersatu Women will be given the opportunity to field a candidate, and also one who can win and serve the people of Malacca.

"Currently, we do not have any Bersatu Women elected representatives in Malacca, so all (candidates) are new faces," she said to the media after launching a mobile Local Social Support Centre in Puchong today.

When asked about the total number of PN women candidates, Rina said at the moment the matter had not been decided.

"We have also submitted names from those from PN and hope they will receive the support of all so that we will have more women elected representatives. I am sure if given the opportunity, they will be able to carry out their duties and responsibilities well.

"The number (of candidates) has not been determined as there are some who are demanding seats among the parties," she added.

Previously, PN through Muhyiddin said the coalition will field candidates in all 28 Malacca state assembly seats.

The state election is being held following the dissolution of the Malacca state assembly on Oct 4 after four assemblypersons withdrew support for the leadership of Chief Minister Sulaiman Md Ali.

The Election Commission set Nov 20 as polling day for the state election, with nomination day on Nov 8 and early voting to be held on Nov 16.
