BEAUFORT: Datuk Seri Anifah Aman says he is unsure if he will be picked as the candidate for the Kimanis parliamentary seat, which he has won in the last three general elections.
"I don't know and I'm not sure, that's an honest answer for you. I don't decide whether I become candidate or not," said Anifah, who is also Foreign Affairs Minister.
However, the three-term incumbent asked Kimanis constituents to support whomever Barisan Nasional fields as the candidate.
"I know there are many of your requests that haven't been granted. We will not be able to achieve them in a day or two – it can take years.
"However, it is ongoing and we know what we can achieve in the near future or in the long term," he said in his speech at the Sayang Kimanis event here on Saturday.
Anifah, who is Kimanis Umno chief, retained the seat for a third term in the last general election, polling 13,754 votes against PKR's Jaafar Ismail, who got 8,031 votes.
The two state constituencies in Kimanis are also held by Umno members.
Bongawan is represented by Datuk Mohamad Alamin and Membakut by Datuk Mohd Arifin Mohd Arif.
