Bn must contest in kajang, says perlis mb


azlanmanKANGAR, Feb 20 – Perlis Menteri Besar Azlan Man said today the Barisan Nasional (BN) should field a candidate in the Kajang state by-election, polling for which is on March 23.

Azlan, who is deputy chairman of the Perlis Umno Liaison Committee, said victory or defeat was secondary.The primary consideration was that the by-election would enable the BN to learn the people’s change of attitude, he told Bernama after he had addressed staff of the Perlis Community Development Department (Kemas), here.

Azlan said that though Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) won the seat with a big majority in the last general election, it did not mean that there would not be a change now. The Kajang state seat fell vacant after the assemblyman, Lee Chin Cheh of PKR, resigned on Jan 27 to pave the way for PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to contest the seat.

Anwar is said to be eyeing the post of Selangor menteri besar.
