PBB tiada calon baru dari pemuda mungkin hanya dari wanita - Fadillah Yusuf
PBB Youth welcomes candidates from women’s wing for GE
Posted on August 31, 2012, Friday
PUTRAJAYA: The Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Youth wing said it would welcome a woman candidate from the party’s Women’s wing in the 13th general election.
Its chief Datuk Fadillah Yusof noted that during the last state election, PPB which formed the backbone of the state Barisan Nasional (BN), fielded 10 candidates, mostly from the Youth wing.
“In the last state election, the new faces were from the Youth wing, aged 45 and below. It is fair for us to give the opportunity to the Women’s wing to get more seats. We look at the bigger picture as it is not about self-interest,” he told reporters after the launch of six new Dunham-Bush products here yesterday.
Currently PBB has three women representatives – Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism deputy minister Datuk Rohani Karim who is also Batang Lupar MP, Nancy Shukri (Batang Sadong) and Norah Abdul Rahman (Tanjong Manis).
Fadillah was also confident that PBB’s chances of retaining its existing seats in the general election if new faces were fielded, would not be affected.
“In the last state election those who were not nominated had remained in PBB and BN to campaign for the party and had continued to serve the people. — Bernama
