PETALING JAYA: Muda will be fielding UK-trained lawyer and climate change advocate Abe Lim in the urban Bandar Utama seat in Selangor, which was won by Pakatan Harapan (PH) with a thumping majority in the last state election.

In 2018, DAP’s Jamaliah Jamaluddin, who is expected to be retained by the party to defend her seat, polled 38,561 or 91% of the total ballots cast to win by a majority of 34,679 votes in a three-way contest. She defeated the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate, Ch’ng Soo Chau from MCA, and an independent, both of whom lost their deposits.

Perikatan Nasional (PN) is expected to field a candidate from Gerakan in Bandar Utama.
