No guarantee Perak BN reps will run again in GE15, says MB


There is no guarantee that Perak BN incumbent assemblypersons will be fielded again in the 15th general election (GE15), said state BN chairperson Saarani Mohamad.

The Perak menteri besar said it would depend on the prevailing situation as there could be new faces with the potential to replace old candidates as was done in the Malacca polls.

"We (Perak BN) have started to get the names from the divisions. At the same time, we need to do a study from the relevant parties so that the candidates are winnable ones,” Saarani (above) said after launching the Parit BN election machinery last night.

Asked when it would be the right time to have the election, the Kota Tampan assemblyperson said it would be best to hold it this year after considering the readiness of the BN machinery throughout the state.

Ready for ‘battle’

Meanwhile, Parit MP Mohd Nizar Zakaria said his division is ready for a "battle" in GE15 to regain the mandate of the voters.

"Alhamdulillah, the commitment of all party members and machinery is very high to ensure the victory of BN candidates both for the parliamentary and the two-state constituencies in it, namely Belanja and Bota in GE15," he added.

The Perak state legislature has 59 assemblypersons with 25 from BN who are all from Umno, Bersatu (seven), PAS (three), DAP (16), Amanah (five) and PKR (three).
