The parliamentary constituency to be contested by incoming PKR president Anwar Ibrahim will be announced this month, said party secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.

Saifuddin, who is also the Domestic Trade and Consumerism minister, said so far, three parliamentary seats have been shortlisted to make way for Anwar but he declined to disclose the areas.

“It will be announced this month if there is no problem, but the actual area will be announced soon,”he said after the Malacca state PKR briefing on the 2018 election, at Ayer Keroh today.

Anwar was earlier reported to have said that he would not be contesting the Permatang Pauh parliamentary seat in Penang but hinted that he would be reappearing in Parliament next month.

Saifuddin said PKR members were asked to give their full support to Anwar once the parliamentary constituency is announced and to be united as a strong machinery for the victory of the party.

"Anwar should be given strong support, especially from party members, to win and subsequently to become prime minister,” he said.
