Pakatan ready to run young candidates in Johor, says Anwar

Pakatan Harapan (PH) leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has said that the alliance is willing to run young candidates in the next state election in Johor.

Anwar said that the central leadership will consult with the Johor PH on the topic.

According to him, their perspective is that candidates must be powerful and young, and that includes women as well. After that, he said that they’ll try to include as many (component) parties as possible.

During a press conference after an engagement session with young people at a restaurant in this city, he also remarked that they will have young candidates from among their youth leadership.

This time around, Anwar, a Member of Parliament for Port Dickson, requested the Election Commission (EC) to conduct the state election without limits, stating that PH’s tactic of holding face-to-face interactions with the people has proven to be its greatest asset.

Anwar also said that if PH collaborated with other opposition parties, they would be able to topple the Umno-led Barisan Nasional (BN).
