Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim is set to defend the Arau parliamentary seat despite getting snubbed by Barisan Nasional (BN).

While it remains unclear at this point if he is leaving Umno, Shahidan told reporters at his service centre in Kubang Gajah, Arau today that he would be contesting under the Perikatan Nasional (PN) banner, Berita Harian reported.

There are currently three parties under the PN coalition; Bersatu, PAS and Gerakan. Shahidan however did not disclose which party.

Prior to his announcement today, PN had allocated Arau for PAS but they did not announce a candidate yet.

“I will contest under a party that is based on Umno, PAS and Bersatu, that fights for religion, race and country. Eventhough Umno also fights for religion, race and country, it is now being led by someone who has betrayed the decision made by the divisions, especially in Arau,” Shahidan was quoted as saying.

BN chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi previously announced Datuk Rozabil Abd Rahman as the party’s candidate for Arau.
