MELAKA,. Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi reiterated today that Umno vice president Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob remains BN’s prime ministerial candidate for the 15th General Election (GE15).
Ahmad Zahid, who is also Umno president, said the decision was final and there was no need to speculate on the matter while BN was campaigning to win this election.
