Did not specify which seat.
Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim yesterday declared that he was ready to contest for a parliamentary seat held by a “traitor” of PKR and Pakatan Harapan in the 15th general election (GE15).
The PKR president, however, did not specify which seat he would be contesting but added the seat must have an “added advantage” to PKR and Harapan.
“Honestly, I have not decided on the choice of the seat (parliamentary seat) to contest but I will certainly consider a seat held by a ‘traitor’ of PKR and Harapan…for example, if the party says contest for the parliamentary seat in Gombak, I will contest,” he said.
Anwar said this during a question-and-answer session at a programme called Sembang Kencang KLS @ Anwar Ibrahim organised by the Kelab Wartawan Kuala Lumpur and Selangor yesterday.
Anwar said the sentiment and support of voters in Port Dickson were much stronger than when he was contesting there in a by-election in October 2018.
MPs who had deserted PKR and joined Bersatu were Azmin Ali (Gombak), Zuraida Kamaruddin (Ampang), Saifuddin Abdullah (Indera Mahkota), Kamaruddin Jaffar (Bandar Tun Razak), Mansor Othman (Nibong Tebal), Rashid Hasnon (Batu Pahat), Santhara Kumar (Segamat), Ali Biju (Saratok), Willie Mongin (Puncak Borneo) and Jonathan Yasin (Ranau).
