SHAH ALAM, July 21 — Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM) today created a stir at the Sungai Kandis nomination centre when one of its members entered the hall and left without registering his name as a candidate.
According to Ahmad Kamarudin, it was his party’s decision to pave way for a straight fight between Barisan Nasional (BN) and Pakatan Harapan (PH) in the by-election.
“To me, Pakatan Harapan has gotten very arrogant since winning the 14th general election, so we would like to support BN in this fight against PH,” the 42-year-old self-employed man told reporters outside the hall.
Ahmad denied when asked if this was just a gimmick to create publicity for his party.
“No, it is the decision by my party. You can call and check with my secretary-general if you do not believe me,” he said.
