Malaysia’s 13th General Election


BN candidates list for Negri Sembilan yet to be finalised

SEREMBAN: The list of Barisan Nasional (BN) candidates to be fielded in Negeri Sembilan in the 13th general election (GE13) has yet to be finalised, state BN chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said.

He said the list was currently being screened by relevant agencies, such asthe the Insolvency Department and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, to ensure that the candidates were truly qualified and clean.     

"The list contains some new names, some old names, some incumbents, but it has yet to be finalised," he said when met at the presentation of Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) business tithe to Negeri Sembilan Tithe Collection Centre here today.     

He said when screening was completed,  the list would be submitted to the party leadership to make the final decision on the winnable candidates.    

Hence, he said all quarters must accept the list of BN candidates finalised by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as BN chairman.    

At the event, Mohamad, who is also Negeri Sembilan Islamic Religious Council chairman, received PNB's business tithe for the year 2009, 2010 and 2011 totalling RM3.5 million from PNB group president and chief executive officer Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman. -- BERNAMA
