DAP to name Bukit Gelugor candidate this Saturday

Amidst intense speculation, DAP today said that it would announce its candidate for the Bukit Gelugor constituency this Saturday.

The party also announced that the DAP operations center for this by-election will be located in Jalan Masjid Negeri.

According to DAP Secretary General Lim Guan Eng, the decision was reached  at the DAP Elections committee and Penang DAP meeting earlier this morning.

“It would be a candidate from DAP, the question of a PAS or PKR candidate does not arise,” he said in a press conference today.

The by-elections will be held to fill the vacated Bukit Gelugor seat following the shock death of the late Karpal Singh on 17 April. Karpal, who was the Bukit Gelugor MP since 2004, won the seat in the 2013 general election with a majority of  41,778 against his MCA opponent.

Nomination day for the Bukit Gelugor by-election is set on Monday 12 May, while polling day will be held on 25 May 2014. -The Rocket
