KUALA LUMPUR, November 6 – Pakatan Harapan (PH) chairman Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today criticized “technical problems” that the Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (Muda) youth party is not on the list candidates from his coalition in the Melaka state elections.

Anwar said this when asked about Muda’s absence from the full list of 28 candidates for the opposition PH coalition, although he had previously expressed his intention to collaborate.

“Well, I am not allowed to announce anything except the fact that there were discussions with the three party leaders, and we were in agreement with that initially.

“But I think there were some technical issues that they will announce separately. But we had some very fruitful discussions, that was before. It didn’t materialize.

“What is important is that there are a number of very young leaders from DAP, PKR, Amanah,” he said at a virtual press conference this afternoon.

Among the list of candidates he announced today was Srikandi leader of Melaka PKR, Farzana Hayani Mohd Nasir, a 21-year-old who will occupy the seat of Sungai Rambai state.

Announcing Farzana Hayani’s candidacy, Anwar pointed out that she would be the youngest candidate in the Melaka state election.
