Former Bersih 2.0 chairman Maria Chin Abdullah will contest in the Petaling Jaya parliamentary seat as widely speculated.

Former two-term MP for Petaling Jaya Selatan Hee Loy Sian will now move to the Kajang state seat.

PKR Wanita chief Zuraida Kamaruddin will defend her Ampang parliamentary seat.

Gan Pei Nei, the incumbent for the Rawang state seat, was dropped and replaced by Chua Wei Kiat.

Dr Wan Azizah announced this at the Kuala Selangor Stadium on Monday night (April 23).

A viral candidate list stated that Dr Wan Azizah would be contesting the Pandan parliamentary seat.
