PETALING JAYA, 17 Oct: The PAS candidate for the Sungai Limau By-Elections will be announced by the PAS President, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang on 21 October.

“We have a candidate which has been decided by PAS and we have submitted it to the Pakatan Rakyat leadership, and it is agreed upon and will be announced on the 21st of this month,” he said in a press statement with PKR De Facto Leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim here today.
