CIMB Political News - 22 July 2013

PAS wants the Terengganu menteri besar post but tells voters otherwise, Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said. Ahmad Zahid said the party will change its tune if it secured the Kuala Besut seat in Wednesday's by-election. "They say they are not going after the menteri besar post but it would be impossible they are not interested when they have the same number of seats as Barisan Nasional if they win this by election," said Ahmad Zahid.

MCA leaders are all for party deputy president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai contesting the party's No. 1 post in party elections at the end of the year. Vice-president Datuk Donald Lim said morale was at an all-time low and that he foresaw a bright future for the party with the enthusiasm that Liow had shown. On Sat, Liow confirmed speculation that he was contesting the post after Dr Chua had announced that he was not seeking re-election.

Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said he will defend his post in the general assembly. Shafie, who won the post in 2011, said he was capable of serving in the position and would give his commitment to strengthening the party. (NST)
