November 9, 2022


Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia: Ahmad Irfan bin Ahmad Sallal, Muhammad Aizzat bin Adzhar & Nurul Jannah binti Wahab


  1. Ustaz Kazim withdrew from contesting in GE15 due to family matters, to avoid clash with his brother who were both contesting in Larut.
  2. Ustaz Kazim's withdrawal is not a problem for Barisan Nasional because the main objective of the party is not just to be a candidate, but to win the election.
  3. Ustaz Kazim will be replaced by Mohd Shafiq Fhadly Mahmud who is the Umno Youth Information Head of Larut Division.
  4. Ustaz Kazim advised the public to cherish each other's reward by not speaking ill about him due to his withdrawal from competing in Larut.

This is part of a media monitoring project where our partner universities collate and compare different angles of GE15 coverage by various news organisations. This helps the public to better understand Malaysia's diverse media landscape. The objective is to strengthen public media literacy.
