PASIR GUDANG, March 29 – The Pasir Gudang Barisan Nasional (BN) said today it is unperturbed by the intention of DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang to contest in the Johor Jaya state constituency in the next general election. Its chairman, Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin(pic), said he welcomed Lim, who has been announced as a candidate for the Gelang Patah parliamentary seat, to contest in Johor Jaya.
BN Pasir Gudang was determined to show Lim that his decision was the biggest mistake of his political career, he told reporters after opening the campus of the Vinayaka Missions International University College in Bandar Seri Alam, here. The assemblyman for Johor Jaya is MCA’s Tan Cher Puk, who garnered 19,538 votes to beat Md Nasir Ab Wahab of Parti Rakyat Malaysia by a majority of 10,488 votes in the general election in 2008. Khaled was asked to comment on talk that Lim was eyeing to contest the Johor Jaya state seat in the 13th general election, to be called anytime now.
