The veteran Opposition lawmaker made the announcement during a party fundraising dinner last Friday in Gelang Patah, Johor where he is the incumbent MP, The Sunday Star reported today.

“I believe the next general election ― the 14th General Election ― will be my last electoral battle,” the 76-year-old was quoted saying.

He indicated his desire to defend his Gelang Patah seat at the next national elections, but added that his party has the final say.
