The PKR’s S Manikumar, a 35-year-old marketing consultant, has been revealed as the Pakatan candidate for Bukit Selambau. According to a source, the multilingual (he knows some Spanish, apparently!) businessman is a party newbie, having joined PKR only a couple of years ago.
An MBA holder and and graduate of Universiti Utara, Manikumar will square off against the MIC’s S Ganesan, a former Lunas state assembly member familiar with the local people.
1040: A crowd is now in Bukit Selambau waiting for the announcement of the candidate, according to my contact at the scene. Anwar is present.
