SEREMBAN: Barisan Nasional will field Senaling assemblyman Datuk Adnan Abu Hassan to wrest the Kuala Pilah parliamentary seat from Perikatan Nasional in the Nov 19 polls.

Serting assemblyman Datuk Shamsulkahar Deli will be fielded in Jempol which is a Barisan stronghold.

The duo were among Barisan candidates who received their letters of authorisation from Barisan deputy chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan at Wisma Umno here.

Barisan did not name the candidates for both seats when it announced its candidates at PWTC in Kuala Lumpur on Nov 1.

Adnan is also Kuala Pilah Umno deputy chief while Shamsulkahar is the number two in the Jempol division.

In the 2018 election, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia candidate Datuk Eddin Syazlee Shith defeated Barisan's Datuk Hasan Malek with a 200-vote majority.

Bersatu was then with Pakatan Harapan.

Eddin secured 18,045 votes while Hassan got 17,845.

Barisan won the Jempol seat when its candidate Datuk Seri Mohd Salim Sharif defeated PKR's Kamarulzaman Kamdias and PAS' Mustaffa Daharun.

Mohd 26,819 votes while Kamarulzaman got 25,188 and Mustaffa, 5,267.
