KLANG, July 12 (Bernama) -- The element whether the candidate standing for election in any constituency is a local or someone coming from outside is only part of the victory factor, said Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari.
On the contrary, he said, the readiness of the election machinery encompassing the whole grassroots and the activities of the whole party machinery were seen to be more important in order to win in any constituency contested.
As such, he said, in the by-election for the state seat of Sungai Kandis, he would concentrate more on the planning for the party machinery in carrying out various activities to be closer to the electorates.
However, factors to feature the local candidate would remain to be evaluated and the decision would be made by the party leadership at the central level.
