KUCHING: PKR president-elect Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will be contesting in the parliamentary seat of Port Dickson, reported MalayMail.

After months of speculation on which seat would be vacated for him to return to Parliament, the announcement was made by PKR secretary-general Datuk Saifuddin Nasution today.

According to MalayMail, this was followed by Port Dickson MP First Admiral Datuk Danyal Balagopal Abdullah’s announcement to resign.

“It is time for Anwar to proceed to helm the nation in accordance to the Pakatan Harapan reformation plan, but accordingly he needs to be a Member of [the]House…in Malaysia Parliament.

“I wholeheartedly wanted to offer to vacate my seat as Port Dickson MP to enable a by-election to be called so Anwar can contest in the said parliamentary seat,” Danyal was quoted as saying.
