Kelantan Umno to submit list of GE15 candidates on Oct 3

MACHANG: Kelantan Umno will submit its list of prospective candidates for the 15th General Election (GE15) to party president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi on Monday (Oct 3).

Kelantan Umno chief Datuk Ahmad Jazlan Yaakub said the list contains nominees for all the 45 state and 14 parliamentary seats in Kelantan.

"A total of 73 candidates were nominated for parliamentary seats and 232 candidates for state seats. For seats currently represented by Umno, we will submit five names while six names will be given for seats without (Umno) representatives.

"We will leave it to the party president to scrutinise the list and see if any of the five nominated is suitable,” he told reporters after opening a bonding programme for Malaysian Armed Forces veterans in Kampung Jenereh Bongkok, Pulai Chondong, here Sunday (Oct 2).

Ahmad Jazlan, who is Machang MP, said the list was drawn up based on the views and feedback of Umno divisional committees.

On another matter, Ahmad Jazlan said Umno had never turned its back on any party which promised to be loyal and friendly to it.

"If Muafakat Nasional 2.0 happens, Kelantan Umno leaves it to the party’s top leadership to decide because it involves party policies.

"In Kelantan, let’s have a 'friendly match' if MN 2.0 materialises, and this cannot be ruled out as anything is possible in politics,” he added. - Bernama
