The Candidates

Incumbent Kee Hiong defeated three challengers in the state elections last August by securing a majority of 4,119 votes.

The DAP assemblyman had represented and served in Kuala Kubu Baharu for three-terms, making the state seat appear as a stronghold for the Pakatan Harapan (PH) component.

However, this is the only one of the three state seats in the Hulu Selangor Parliamentary seat that is not held by the opposition. The parliament seat is also held by the opposition.

This May 11 will see a four-cornered fight between PH, Perikatan Nasional (PN), Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM) and an independent candidate.
