Representatives (Mubarak) has submitted a list of 21 proposed candidates from

among Mubarak members to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Mubarak chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Rahman said they were believed to be

winnable candidates for Barisan Nasional (BN) in the coming 13th general

election in line with the prime minister''s statement that age was not a

consideration as candidates.

"The ''recycled'' candidates from among Mubarak members have the potential of

giving victory to BN, based on their political experience and influence," he

said after a Mubarak supreme council meeting and luncheon with former BN cabinet

ministers, here, today.

Among those present were Dewan Negara president Tan Sri Abu Zahar Ujang,

former defence minister and former foreign minister Tan Sri Tengku Ahmad

Rithauddeen Tengku Ismail and former Selangor menteri besar Tan Sri Abu Hassan

Omar.

On the Mubarak meeting today, Abdul Aziz said it had set up a Council of

setting up more in future," he said.

the children and grandchildren of its members in July or August in Kuala Lumpur

with the aim of strengthening love for the country.

today," he said.
