Incumbent Unmo's Deputy Wanita Head and The Women, Family and Community Development Minister, Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, is defending this seat against Nurul Izzah from Keadilan.
In 1995 Shahrizat beat former Lord President Tun Salleh Abbas of Semangat 46 (now disbanded), in the 1999 elections (during the height of the Reformasi movement), she beat Zainur Zakaria of Keadilan, and in 2004, she defeated Keadilan's Dr Sanusi Osman by a 15,288-vote majority.
Nurul Izzah, despite being the daughter of former deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim, is still a newbie in politics. Shahrizat, on the other hand, is a veteran and has defeated much more fomidible opponents in the past.
Shahrizat is expected to win comfortably, however, it is interesting to see how first timer Nural Izzah will fare - a vote for Nurul Izzah is a vote for Anwar Ibrahim. Will she manage to win a larger margin of votes than her predecessors ?
