Penang DAP, PKR to shake up candidate lists, says source

GEORGE TOWN: The final list of DAP candidates for the state elections in Penang is expected to be ready by Sunday, according to sources in the party.

They said that seven legislators will be dropped as part of a “generational renewal” plan.

“All this will be finalised on Sunday. Nothing is set in stone yet as discussions are still ongoing,” the source told FMT, but refused to confirm rumours that some “key personalities” are among the seven to be dropped.
