Umno to finalise candidates list in a day or two: Mahdzir Khalid
KUALA LUMPUR – The list of Umno candidates contesting in the 15th general election (GE15) would be finalised in a day or two, said the party’s vice-president, Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid.
Mahdzir, who is also caretaker rural development minister, said there is actually still enough time before the list could be finalised in view of the nomination of candidates being on November 5, as announced by the Election Commission (EC).
“…not much to be done now (in finalising the list of candidates),” he told reporters after attending the [email protected] Educational Institution Awards ceremony, here, today.
The EC has set November 19 for polling in GE15, early voting on November 15 and nomination of candidates on November 5.
Asked whether there would be new faces contesting in GE15, Mahdzir, who is also the incumbent for Padang Terap, confirmed the matter.
