“I am confident he will do well in Layang-Layang even though he is a new member of the party, but he is an icon in his own right.

“He has been championing the same causes like us. That’s why I want to highlight Maszlee tonight,” said Anwar.

Maszlee, who is also the Simpang Renggam MP is said to be the menteri besar candidate for PH if the coalition wins in this election.
