Kamilia will face Barisan Nasional’s (BN) Datuk Wan Mohammad Khairil Anuar Wan Ahmad and PAS’s Khalil Idham Lim in a three-cornered fight.
“I, Kamilia Ibrahim, have been approved by the Election Commission (EC) as an independent candidate for Kuala Kangsar parliamentary seat, and with this I announce my resignation from Umno’s Supreme Council, Wanita Umno deputy chief, Kuala Kangsar Wanita Umno chief, and Umno member,” Kamilia wrote in a Facebook status update.
“Wait for the answers to all the riddles at my official outlet here,” she added, referring to her Facebook page.
On Thursday, Kamilia had expressed her disappointment that BN was not fielding her in the May 5 polls, saying it showed the coalition did not recognise the Umno wing’s contributions.
Kamilia had expected to be nominated for Kuala Kangsar where she is the wing’s division chief, especially after Wanita Umno chief Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil declined to contest in Election 2013.
