DAP’s national vice-chairperson Nga Kor Ming has strongly hinted that Pakatan Harapan’s candidate for prime minister will be someone contesting in Perak.
“Perak once gave birth to famous leaders but there are a few now. There has never been a prime minister from Perak, and this is our golden opportunity,” said the incumbent Teluk Intan MP at the Pakatan Harapan convention held at the Ipoh Convention Centre tonight.
He said Perak has witnessed fierce fights in the last three elections and that the key to winning the people’s mandate might be to have a national-level figure spearhead the battle in Perak, which Harapan has already declared to be a frontline state.
Nga said this right after Malaysiakini broke a story revealing that PKR president Anwar Ibrahim was set to contest in Tambun, Perak for GE15 which will be held on Nov 19.
“If we win on Nov 19, just imagine that we will be able to build a corridor of hope in Malaysia from Penang, Perak, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan.
“With these four states, we can galvanise the support of other states in the form of a prosperous and just society built on integrity,” he said. – Malaysiakini
