KUALA LUMPUR, June 3 — Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s eldest son Mohd Nizar (pic left) is much qualified for the Chini state seat, Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman said.
The Pasir Salak MP said that Nizar is suitable for the post under Barisan Nasional (BN) as he was the Pekan Umno Youth chief and has much experience to stand in the by-election.
“He has a party position, he is the division Youth chief and is qualified to stand,” Tajuddin said, adding that Nizar’s academic background also made him suitable, besides being humble and popular among the people.
Earlier on May 14, Pahang BN chief Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail confirmed Umno will field a candidate in the by-election, according to NST.
The by-election campaign is likely to feature former Umno president and BN advisor Najib as the state seat falls under his Pekan federal constituency.
