SEREMBAN, April 13 — Negri Sembilan PKR Leadership Council (MPN) chairman Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun has described that all the candidates vying for the vice-president post in the party election this time, as those with calibre and have their own strength.

Aminuddin also thanked Rafizi Ramli who will go for the deputy president post, for listing him in the vice-president team for the coming party election.

“All the candidates have their own strength. This shows there are many leaders in PKR.

“...we have to work as a team, the Keadilan team,” the Negri Sembilan mentri besar told reporters after chairing the state executive council meeting, here today.

The media reported that Rafizi has listed several leaders who would be in the vice-president team in the party election, namely Aminuddin, Chang Lih Kang (Tanjung Malim MP); Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad (Setiawangsa MP) and G. Manivanna (former Kapar MP).
