SIMPANG RENGGAM: It is still too early to decide on where to contest in the coming 15th General Election (GE15), says PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
The Opposition Leader said this when asked to comment on a news report that he was looking for a few potential seats where he would contest during his working visit to Johor, aside from welcoming Simpang Renggam MP Dr Maszlee Malik to PKR.
Anwar said the report might have been mere "speculation" due to his working visits to Kluang and Simpang Renggam.
"It is still too early to talk about this (where to contest).
"The news might have come out due to my visit to Johor. But I am not saying no," he said when met by reporters at Dewan Kampung Baru Machap here on Saturday (Nov 27).
When asked to comment on Maszlee's decision to join PKR, Anwar said it was a good move as Maszlee could fill the new line-up of young leaders in the party.
"He is young, and I am confident that he will fortify our leadership line," he said.
When asked whether Maszlee would maintain his Simpang Renggam seat in GE15, Anwar said there were no decisions on the matter yet, but the top leaders of PKR will take into consideration Maszlee’s services to the people.
"We have not made any decision on which seat will be contested, but we will look at his performance in Simpang Renggam as he is very close to the people here.
"We will also look into his experience during his tenure as a minister," he added.
