Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia (PGRM) has sent a list of potential candidates for the 14th General Election (GE14) to the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) to be screened before submitting their names to the Barisan Nasional (BN) leadership.

Gerakan president Mah Siew Keong said 45 candidates were identified comprising new and old faces and their names sent to the MACC to clear them of any records for corruption.

"In 2013, we contested 45 seats, therefore we have sent the list to the MACC last month to ensure they have a clean record. Those with a bad track record will not be given a chance to contest in the coming general election.

"We are still waiting for the list from the MACC before submitting the names to the BN Supreme Council," he said after attending a social media workshop organised to prepare for the GE14, at Menara PGRM, today.
