Bersatu's Ali Biju defends Krian seat as indie


SARAWAK POLLS | Incumbent Krian assemblyperson Ali Biju will defend his seat as an independent while his coalition and party have decided to sit out of the Sarawak legislative assembly elections.

Ali, 52, is a two-term assemblyperson and is currently the deputy minister for energy and natural resources at the federal level.

He is a member of Bersatu, which in turn is a component of the Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition.

Ali's challengers include novice Friday Belik from the Progressive Democratic Party (PDP), a component of the incumbent ruling coalition Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS).

PN chairperson and Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin had previously announced that the coalition will not participate in Sarawak elections to respect the wishes of the GPS leadership.

 Ali is one of two candidates from parties, at the time of writing, which is allied with GPS at the federal level.

The other candidate is Mohammad Arifiriazul Paijo from PAS who was fielded for Beting Maro.
