Dewan Rakyat Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said being eligible to contest does not mean an 18 year-old can automatically become a candidate.

Ismail, who is Umno’s vice-president, said it is still up to the party to endorse the person’s candidacy.

However, he said the door is open for the eighteen year-old to stand in the election.
