KOTA KINABALU: Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) expects to field a young candidate in the Sook state seat in the coming general election.

PBRS president Tan Sri Joseph Kurup (pic) said this was because a younger candidate was more suitable to bring the people's concerns to the leadership.

He said voters were also more accepting of younger candidates and preferred them.

Kurup said the party was now analysing the list of candidates and will hand the names over to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Sabah Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman to make a final decision.

“Even though PBRS is a small party, our vision of bringing changes according to the people's aspiration is no lesser (than other parties)," he added.

Sook is a state seat within the Pensiangan parliamentary constituency.

PBRS' Datuk Ellron Alfred Angin is the current Sook assemblyman.

Kurup is the incumbent Pensiangan MP.
