PETALING JAYA: PKR Federal Territories chief Datuk Zaid Ibrahim has confirmed that he is in the race for the PKR deputy presidency.

He will be engaged in a three-cornered fight for the party deputy president post.

The other two in the race are party vice-president Azmin Ali and Perak chief Mustaffa Kamil Ayub.

Zaid said he had decided not to contest the number one post as his advisers said his chances of winning is higher if he contested the number two post.

He promised to promote party unity, revive inactive divisions and rebuild the strength of the party if given the mandate.

Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar will contest for one of the four elected vice-president post.

Nurul said she had decided not to contest the number two post as it was not in the best interest of the party.

Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim has declined the nominations he received for the deputy president and vice-president posts.

He did not give any explanation and did not send any agent to submit his nomination form.

Incumbent party president Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail was returned unopposed. Her agent submitted the nomination form at about 1.45pm Saturday.

The Wanita wing will see a three-cornered fight for the top post.

Incumbent Zuraida Kamaruddin is challenged by Dr Suraya Sudin and Animah Ferrar.
