He refused to comment on Tuan Ibrahim's decision to refuse the nomination.

"Respecting leaders is our culture and I don't wish to comment more than that," he added.

The Kota Baru division had on Monday named Tuan Ibrahim as a contender for the president's post, citing Abdul Hadi's health reasons.

However, Tuan Ibrahim turned down the nomination, saying the "unprecedented" challenge for the top post was not good for party unity.
