MIRI, Oct 31: Sarawak Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) is expected to announce its list of candidates for the 15th General Election (GE15) tomorrow (Nov 1) in Miri.

According to Sarawak PKR chairman Roland Engan, party president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is expected to make the announcement during a press conference at Jinhold Hotel & Serviced Apartment around 4.15pm tomorrow, shortly after arriving at Miri Airport from Kuching that same day.

Anwar’s flight is scheduled to arrive at Miri Airport at 3.30pm for the party’s ‘Jelajah Mega Harapan’ programme. Later that evening, he would proceed to a walkabout session cum ceramah (talk) at Taman Rakyat Taman Tunku (in front of Boulevard Trading).

Anwar is also expected to attend another ceramah session later that night, around 7.15pm at Miri Waterfront Commercial Centre, before flying back to Kuala Lumpur at 9pm.

Meanwhile, Roland also hoped that PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli would be allowed to enter the State to attend the programme.

“Rafizi’s entry is waiting for the Sarawak government’s approval, and we hope this time around the ban is lifted so that he can join us for the event,” said Roland at a press conference today.

During the 2014 Balingian by-election campaign, Rafizi and several other PKR leaders were barred from entering Sarawak.

Also present at the press conference were Sarawak PKR deputy chairman Abun Sui Anyit, election director Abang Zulkifli Abang Engkeh, and election director for Ulu Rajang Yee Chin Kui. — DayakDaily
