Modified 25 Oct 2018, 3:56 am

A Kedah PKR leader is in remand for a week beginning today into alleged money politics in the party election.

The remand order against the 59-year-old party leader was issued by Alor Setar Magistrate’s Court assistant registrar Jamaluddin Elias following an application by the MACC for investigation under Section 16(a) of the MACC Act 2009.

According to a source, the suspect was alleged to have asked for RM20,000 from a party member to enable the latter to contest for a divisional head post in Kedah in the on-going PKR election.

The suspect, who contested in one of the state constituencies in the last general election, was arrested at 4.10pm yesterday when he surrendered himself to the state MACC office.
