KOTA BARU - Parti Amanah Negara (PAN) will wait until the 14th General Election (GE14) is near before naming its Kelantan Menteri Besar candidate.
State PAN chairman Datuk Wan Rahim Wan Abdullah said the decision was made based on Barisan Nasional’s premature naming of a politician as its Menteri Besar candidate in the 2008 general election.
"(Besides), this kind of (subject) is a big issue, and many local people do not like it to be discussed in public.
"Let the 2008 (BN mistake) be a lesson to us, and it should not be repeated," he said when contacted.
On a related matter, Wan Rahim described DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang’s statement that Datuk Husam Musa should be Kelantan Menteri Besar as “his own personal view.”
Lim was reported as saying recently that Husam, who is PAN’s vice-president, should be menteri besar if Pakatan Harapan wins the state in GE14.
