KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) candidates for the election are mostly young, professionals and educated.
Disclosing this at a press conference yesterday PKR deputy president Azmin Ali, said that the names of the candidates that have been identified at the divisional level have been submitted to the state and central leadership.
"However, even though PKR is highlighting young candidates, it is important to balance the selection process as the support from the grassroots must be taken into account," he said.
Azmin was heading an 8-member delegation from the central leadership for the PKR Sabah general election meeting which was attended by election machinery representatives from 16 divisions.
During the meeting, Azmin briefed on the distribution of seats among Pakatan Rakyat (PR) members namely PKR, PAS and DAP which is in its final stage.
"Most of the parliamentary seats have been sorted out and the PR leadership will identify the candidates in the near future so that they will be able to focus on the next general election.
"The discussion among PR component parties will also include SAPP (Sabah Progressive Party) as mutual partner. I am optimistic that we will be able to finalise the process amicably and for PKR to take the lead in the next general election," he added.
Azmin also said that PKR will be appointing two more central supreme council members from Sabah which will be announced by PKR President Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail in early November.
Present at the press conference were Sabah PKR chief Ahmad Thamrin Jaini, Penang Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Mansor Othman, PKR Women's chief Zuraida Kamaruddin, Petaling Jaya Selatan member of parliament Hee Loy Sian, PKR Deputy Secretary-General Darell Leiking and PKR Supreme Council member Roland Chia.
