GE15: PBM to only contest seats held by elected reps, says Zuraida

BUKIT MERTAJAM: In the 15th general election (GE15), Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM) will field candidates only in seats now held by its elected representatives, says its president-designate Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin (pic).

She said for now, the party would not waste time contesting in other constituencies as PBM believed the incumbents had got what it takes to retain their seats.

"The voters are familiar with us (incumbents), our machinery in fact are already doing work in the parliamentary and state constituencies involved," she told reporters after officiating the opening of PBM's Penang office in Juru, here, on Saturday (Sept 24).

Zuraida said besides her own Ampang parliamentary seat, Larry Sn’g and Steven Choong will be defending the Julau and Tebrau parliamentary seats as well.

As for state seats, the incumbents are A.Sivasubramaniam (Buntong), Paul Yong (Tronoh) and Leong Cheok Keng (Malim Nawar) in Perak and Haniza Mohamed Talha (Lembah Jaya) and Daroyah Alwi (Sementa) in Selangor.

She claimed several other MPs would be joining the party and defend their seats in GE15, but stopped short of naming them, saying that they would be revealed at the party’s annual general meeting on Oct 1.

Zuraida has been Ampang MP since 2008, representing PKR before joining Bersatu in 2020. She then left the party to join PBM in May this year. - Bernama
