Harakah Daily reported on Sunday, Siti Zailah, who is also the Rantau Panjang MP had claimed that based on the past election record, Pakatan Rakyat (PR) had a better chance of winning the seat if a PAS candidate was fielded in the seat that had been won by Umno for the past three terms.
She added that only a PAS candidate had ever won the seat as the opposition against Umno.
Trouble is brewing between PAS and PKR in Kelantan after Siti Zailah’s suggestion and it is a prelude of more acrimony between both Opposition allies.
In GE13, Noor Zahidi oh Umno defeated Saharun with a 1,736-vote majority, polling 10,174 votes against Saharun’s 8,438, while independent candidate Izat Bukhary Ismail Bukhary obtained 65 votes.
State PKR chief Abdul Aziz Kadir, in a text message replied that he would leave the decision to the PR central committees to decide on the candidate for the seat.
