KUALA LUMPUR, 09 NOV: Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim will return as a candidate for the Bandar Tun Razak Parliamentary seat in the upcoming 13th General Election (GE-13).
While announcing Abdul Khalid’s candidacy, PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim encourages voters of Bandar Tun Razak to give their full support to Abdul Khalid, also the Chief Minister of Selangor.
Anwar also reflected how Abdul Khalid will also be given a big role at the federal level should Pakatan Rakyat conquer Putrajaya in the upcoming elections.
“This Tan Sri Khalid, as Chief Minister he has a big role, at Federal Government he also has a huge role, taking care of the nation’s economy,” said Anwar in the “Jelajah Merdeka Rakyat” talks at the Sri Labuan flats in Cheras last night.
In the GE-12, four years ago, Abdul Khalid defeated Datuk Tan Chai Ho from Umno-BN with the majority votes of 2,515, winning the Bandar Tun Razak chair.
The “Jelajah Merdeka Rakyat” program that was held last night received an encouraging reception when approximately 2, 500 people flooded the location despite the rain and mud.
Besides Anwar, also delivering a speech in last night’s program was Abdul Khalid, North Petaling Jaya’s MP, Tony Phua and Pokok Sena MP, Datuk Mahfuz Omar.
