The duo, who are members of the Kedah PKR election committee, allegedly asked the candidate to pay the requested amount from a candidate. They promised that his name will remain in the system for the party divisional election happening on the 22nd of September where they will nominate the Kedah PKR branch leader.

A source told The Star that the suspects informed the candidate that his name would be dropped from the list if he did not pay them the money. The candidate had already registered his name in the list before this.
