PBB to field woman educationist in Dalat (Sarawak)

KUCHING: A woman educationist will stand in the Dalat state seat in the coming state election, replacing Agriculture Minister Datuk Effendi Norwawi who is not seeking re-election.

Fatimah Abdullah, 44, who is now pursuing her doctorate in education administration in Universiti Malaya, will be one of the several new faces Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) will field.

Effendi who is also PBB vice-president, is not seeking re-election in Dalat because of his heavy commitment as a federal minister.

The party has previously fielded women educationists in parliamentary elections but this is the first time it will be doing so in a state election.

Fatimah, who hails from Dalat, is married to Dr Adi Badiozaman Tuah, the principal of Batu Lintang Teachers' Training College and they have two children.

With Fatimah entering the state political fray, there will be at least three women candidates in the elections due before November.

The others are Datin Paduka Sharifah Mordiah Tuanku Fauzi in Pantai Damai and Lily Yong Lee Lee in Padungan.

Yong, the Sarawak United People's Party Wanita chief, is a political secretary to the chief minister.

She will replace Datuk Song Swee Guan, who has represented the constituency for almost 20 years.
