Pahang Menteri Besar Adnan Yaakob has hinted that he may not contest in the upcoming 14th General Election (GE14).
He said that although the decision was not final, it was only logical as had been involved in politics a very long time.
“I am just voicing my opinion as I have been involved in politics for a long time (30 years) and if I want to retire, it would be just about appropriate.
“In politics, if you want to retire, there need not necessarily be a successor…the successor will come when the time is right. What more in Pahang, you must get the consent of the Sultan as well as the support of the Prime Minister,” he told reporters after officiating Ketereh Umno division’s delegates conference here today.
Also present was Ketereh Umno head Annuar Musa, who is also Umno information chief.
However, Adnan said his decision was not final and that there was no pressure on him to retire from politics.
“In politics, we ourselves must make our own assessments when to go and not because of pressure. Actually, in politics, even 50 years is really a short time,” he said.
