KLANG: The third and final leg of the Selangor PKR party polls takes place Sunday (Oct 28) with the final six out of the state's 22 divisions e-voting to pick the divisional and central leaders.

The six divisions are Pandan, Shah Alam, Hulu Langat, Ampang, Kuala Selangor and Tanjung Karang.

Pandan will be much watched as the battle for the division chief's post will be fiercely fought between former Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli and incumbent Lembah Jaya assemblyman Haniza Talha.

Rafizi is also in the race for the party's coveted deputy president's post and is facing off incumbent Datuk Seri Azmin Ali for it.

Haniza, meanwhile, is leading in the race for the Wanita PKR chief's position.

She is also a close ally of Rafizi's nemesis and opponent Azmin.

There is also concern that there may be trouble cropping up during the polling process like it did last week during the second leg of the Selangor party elections.

In last week's Selangor polls, high drama unfolded at the Petaling Jaya Utara, Gombak, Puchong and Selayang divisions.

Scuffles, strange people coming to vote as well as frayed tempers due to the long e-voting process had been the order of the day.

The conclusion of today's polling in Selangor will also determine if Azmin has managed to garner sufficient votes to emerge victor in his home ground.

In the event Rafizi manages to take a lead in Selangor, Azmin's current position as the party's number two becomes shaky.

Currently, Rafizi claims he is in the lead with 47,542 votes nationwide as opposed to Azmin's 46,547 votes.

From the party elections thus far, Rafizi claims to have 47,542 votes (50.5% of the total) compared to Azmin's 46,547 votes (49.5%).

He also claims to have won in 86 branches compared to Azmin's 72 branches but the claims are yet to be officially substantiated.
