PETALING JAYA: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said it is a possibility that he may contest in Putrajaya in the coming general election.

Dr Mahathir said, “Yes, maybe I will stand in Putrajaya. You can tell them that I may contest.”

He was reponding to reporters today when asked on reports of him contesting in Putrajaya, at the PPBM headquarters.

Since last year, there have been calls for him to contest in the election, including from Parti Amanah Negara which had proposed that he stand in Putrajaya.

Dr Mahathir, who is also Pakatan Harapan chairman, had said recently that Langkawi or Putrajaya would be his preferred choice.

While both Langkawi and Putrajaya hold special significance for Dr Mahathir, both the constituencies are currently held by Barisan Nasional.

Putrajaya member of parliament is Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, who is also Federal Territories Minister.
