KOTA BARU: Perikatan Nasional will announce the names of its candidates for the 15th General Election (GE15) in the state they will be contesting, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (pic).
“This will enable the people of the affected states to know who the PN candidates are and from which party. Only after that can we set our target for seats, which is after the nomination, as only then will we know (whether the candidates are accepted by the people).
“InsyaAllah, we will see the progress,” the Perikatan chairman told reporters at a gathering held in conjunction with the 32-year celebration of the Kelantan government’s administration of developing with Islam at the compound of Sultan Muhammad IV Stadium here on Friday (Oct 21) night.
Also present were PAS president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang and Kelantan Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yakob.
Muhyiddin, who is also Bersatu President, said Perikatan would field its candidates in all the 222 parliamentary seats, including 27 seats that are considered critical, in GE15.
All Perikatan candidates in GE15 will be required to sign a pledge to demonstrate their commitment to fighting corruption, as was done in the Johor and Melaka state elections, he said.- Bernama
