IPOH, March 14 - The Perak Barisan Nasional-does not rule out the possibility of the BN fielding the same candidate in both a parliamentary seat and a state seat in the 14th-General Election.-
Its chairman, Datuk Seri Dr Zambry-Abd Kadir, said the matter of the same candidate contesting both a parliamentary seat and a state seat was not something new, both in terms of the BN and the opposition.-
-It does not mean that we are short of candidates; the leadership wants the services of particular candidates,- he said at a press conference after chairing the weekly meeting of the State Executive Council here today.-
The Menteri-Besar was asked to comment on a newspaper report that he would also contest the Lumut parliamentary seat in GE14. Zambry is the state assemblyman for Pangkor.-
Lumut had been an MCA seat until GE13 in 2013 when Mohamad Imran-Abd Hamid-of the opposition PKR beat Tan Sri Kong Cho Ha who had been the MP since 1999.
