Candidates for Batu (P115) Parliamentary seat

Batu went to the MIC. The MCA is sore.

Batu Division MCA closed the movement room and claimed to boycott GE15 this time.

..

Batu was a BN-MCA stronghold until GE12 when Tian Chua and PKR wrestled it from BN-MCA. He retained Batu in GE13 with a larger majority but was disqualified for GE14. An Independent with the backing of PKR won it.

P Prabakaran, who won Batu in GE14, then joined PKR. He is likely to retain Batu, unless Tian Chua is preferred but that’s another story. All Independents have little hope. They might even lose their deposit.

Two names are listed by Wikipedia as candidates in Batu even though nominations are not open. They are Siti Kassim and Cleopatra. They will not win. PKR will win with its candidate.
