KOTA BAHARU – PAS is to announce its candidate for the Chempaka state by-election on Sunday, Kelantan PAS deputy commissioner I Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah said today.
Nomination for the by-election is scheduled for March 10 and polling, March 22.
Mohd Amar said Kelantan PAS had shortlisted three candidates for the by-election and that the list had been sent to the PAS headquarters for final evaluation.
“The three candidates are all males and from the Chempaka constituency. They are ulamas and professionals. None of them are the children of the late Tok Guru (Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat),” he told reporters after the weekly meeting of the state executive council in Kota Darulnaim here.
The Chempaka seat fell vacant following the death of Nik Abdul Aziz on Feb 12. – BERNAMA
