Late Sarawak chief minister’s son to contest in state election

LUNDU (BERNAMA) – Azizul Annuar Adenan, son of former Sarawak chief minister the late Adenan Satem (Tok Nan), will be contesting the Tanjong Datu seat in the upcoming 12th Sarawak State Election.

Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) chairman, Abang Johari Tun Openg said this decision was made as the incumbent assemblyman for the seat, Tok Nan’s wife, Amar Jamilah Anu wished to withdraw and give the opportunity to Azizul.

“We at Parti Pesaka Bumiputera (PBB) itself want young people… it is appropriate we give way to his son to continue the vision (of the late Adenan Satem). I think he (Azizul) is well prepared, he is talented, he has the background… I don’t mind to tell you he has a character like that of his father.

“I’ve given the indication and will confirm it this December 3. Usually an indication can become a reality,” he said at a media conference after officially opening the Sarawak Centre of Technical Excellence (CENTEXS), Lundu, yesterday.
