GE14: Makkal Sakti wants to contest four parliamentary constituencies

KUALA LUMPUR: Unlike Makkal Sakti's stand in the 13th General Election, the party is now confident of representing the Barisan Nasional (BN) to contest four parliamentary constituencies.

Its president Datuk Seri R.S. Thanenthiran said he would leave it to the BN leadership to make the decision and did not want to put any pressure.

"We want to contest on a BN ticket and have already expressed our desire to the BN leadership ... this was decided after 10 years of becoming a strategic partner of BN. If given the opportunity, we want to compete in the general election this time around.

"We have credible candidates and also new faces," he said in an interview at Bernama headquarters here today.

Thanenthiran, in the meantime, also reminded the BN component parties to put aside partisan sentiments and focus on ensuring victory for BN in GE14. — Bernama
