Tengku Adnan: Do not lobby to contest in GE13
PUTRAJAYA: Barisan Nasional secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Mansor reminded those eyeing BN candidacy in the upcoming general election not to resort to lobbying.
He said shortlisted candidates were those wanted by the people, and had undergone a stringent vetting process.
"I advise those aspiring to be candidates, no need to hang around near or try to meet component party leaders or myself in trying to get selected.
"This is not necessary as the names will be submitted to the BN headquarters via the appropriate channels. Do not resort to unsavoury tactics because we have own own criteria in determining candidates," he told reproters after attending a ceremony to hand over the RM100 Early Schooling Aid at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Putrajaya Presint 9 (2) here Saturday.
Tengku Adnan, who is also Putrajaya MP, was commenting on last-minute lobbying by those wanting to be picked as candidates in the elections. - Bernama
