Pakatan Harapan (PH) chairman Anwar Ibrahim yesterday hinted at fielding Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari as a candidate for the Gombak parliamentary seat in the 15th general election (GE15) on Nov 19.
"That is the duty of Amir (Amirudin), who wants to take care of Gombak. We will send Selangor's main commander to Gombak… but this is not an official announcement… officially, it will be on Oct 28," he said at an event in Kuala Selangor last night.
"I have leaked the question, I discussed it with Amir (Amirudin) and he said 'I am the commander and I can, insha Allah, defend it (for PH)'," said the PKR president.
The Gombak parliamentary seat incumbent, Mohamed Azmin Ali, who is also the minister of international trade and industry, had previously stated his desire to defend the seat in GE15.
Azmin has held the Gombak seat, which he won on a PKR ticket, for three terms.
Meanwhile, Amanah president Mohamad Sabu, when met after the programme, said he was expected to defend his Kota Raja parliamentary seat.
