Confirmed! BN not contesting Penanti

Andrew Ong (Malaysiakini)
Barisan Nasional will not be contesting in the Penanti by-election on May 31, announced Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak today.
The decision was made following a BN supreme council meeting chaired by Najib this afternoon.
The decision was not a major surprise as Najib had previously indicated that the ruling coalition was not interested in ‘wasting public funds’ by taking part in the by-election.
