KOTA BARU, 1 June 2009: A person who displays both an ulama (Islamic scholar) and professional image is the preferred choice of PAS to be its candidate in the 14 July Manik Urai by-election.
PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat said these qualities were important for PAS to continue in the footsteps of its previous assemblyperson, the late Ismail Yaacob.
Nik Abdul Aziz, who is also Kelantan menteri besar, told this to reporters after performing the ground-breaking ceremony for the Bazar Tok Guru project today.
Ismail died of a heart attack on 22 May.
Nomination for the by-election is 6 July. — Bernama
