KOTA KINABALU – Sabah Wanita Barisan Nasional has submitted a list of 20 old and new faces as possible candidates for the next general election to Wanita BN chief Tan Sri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.
Its chairman, Datuk Armani Mahiruddin, said all the 20 had the potential to be fielded in the 14th general election.
The Sabah Wanita UMNO and BN were ready to face GE14, she said to reporters at an Aidilfitri ‘open house’ at her residence here yesterday.
Armani, who is Sabah Wanita UMNO chief, said: “We also always go down to the ground from time to time to meet the people. Apart from that, the JR Plus approach also gives us added value in our efforts to be close to the people,” she said.
The JR Plus or ‘Jalinan Rakyat Plus’, which was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in April, functions as a platform with the UMNO and BN election machineries in facing GE14.
Asked whether she would be a candidate in GE14, Armani said she left the matter to Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman to decide. – BERNAMA
