KOTA BHARU: PAS president Tan Sri Abdul Hadi Awang (pic) will defend the Marang parliamentary seat in the 15th general election next month, says party secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan.

“I’ve not heard these rumours about him (Abdul Hadi) not contesting in the election this time around. I can confirm that he will be defending his seat,” he told reporters after officiating at the Natural Resources Ecotourism Empowerment seminar at Pantai Cahaya Bulan here on Saturday (Oct 29).

He was responding to talk that Abdul Hadi will not be contesting in the 15th General Election.

In the 14th General Election, Abdul Hadi won the Marang seat with a 53,749 vote-majority against challengers from Barisan Nasional and PKR. – Bernama
