KUALA LUMPUR: PAS has shortlisted eight candidates to contest in the Sungai Limau by-election, said party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.
However, the Marang MP said that the candidates names would only be announced on Oct 21, in Kedah.
“All of the candidates are new faces and had never contested in the previous election.
“We are currently scrutinising each candidate to ensure that they are free from scandals, corruption and are well-accepted by the grassroots,” he said after chairing a meeting at the party headquarters here yesterday.
The Sungai Limau state seat fell vacant following the death of its incumbent Tan Sri Azizan Abdul Razak, the former Kedah Mentri Besar, on Sept 26.
