SHAH ALAM, July 21 — Two groups of supporters from PKR and Umno gathered outside the nomination centre here this morning to show support for their respective candidates in the Sg Kandis by-election.
From PKR, besides party president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and Selangor Mentri Besar Amirudin Shari, several Cabinet ministers were also seen among its supporters this morning.
As for Umno, deputy president Datuk Seri Muhammad Hasan, Tan Sri Annuar Musa and Datuk Ahmad Mazlan were seen among the group of supporters.
There were about 50 people in each group.
PKR’s Mohd Zawawi Ahmad Mughni, a tahfiz school principal, will run against Umno supreme council member Datuk Lokman Noor Adam.
According to sources, there will be a third person, most likely an independent, contesting for the Selangor state seat.
The seat fell vacant following the death of its assemblyman Mat Shuhaimi Shafiei on July 2 after battling lymphatic cancer.
