PUTRAJAYA, May 18 — There is no agreement from the Bersatu Supreme Leadership Council (MPT) on the candidates to be fielded in the 15th General Election (GE15), said its secretary-general, Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin.

“Actually, there is no agreement at the MPT level and I do not want to raise this issue for now until the matter is rediscussed,” he said.

Hamzah, who is also the Home Minister, said this when asked to comment on the announcement of Terengganu Bersatu to field candidates in the 10 state seats and two parliamentary seats in the next GE.

“This is normal. Sometimes, there are people who make decisions long before the party does,” he told the media after attending the Home Ministry Aidilfitiri open house at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre, here, today.

Recently, Terengganu Bersatu announced it would field candidates to contest 10 state seats currently controlled by Barisan Nasional (BN), and two parliamentary seats in Besut and Hulu Terengganu, in GE15. — Bernama
