MIRI: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Baram has put forward the names of its chairman Roland Engan and publicity chief Boyce Ngau to contest in the Baram parliamentary seat.
When contacted, Roland said although the party had decided to nominate two candidates for the seat, Boyce was the more likely candidate.
“I may have to contest the Mulu (state) seat, while Boyce will contest for the parliamentary seat,” he said.
In a statement, Roland said the Marudi and Telang Usan state seats would be contested by Elias Lipi and Philip Jau respectively.
Roland has contested the Baram parliamentary seat twice — in 2013 and 2018.
Incumbent Anyi Ngau first won by a slim majority of 194 in 2003 and then by a 1,990-vote majority in 2018.
The state election must be called by next year, while the 15th general election must be held by mid-2023.
