SETIAWANGSA - Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Pribumi) chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has turned down PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali’s offer to contest the Gombak seat.

“I have already decided that I will contest in either Langkawi, Kubang Pasu or Putrajaya,” he said after the launch of Pribumi's Setiawangsa division on Sunday (Jan 14).
