Joseph Sipalan (Malaysiakini)
Former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad will not be campaigning in the Hulu Selangor by-election, although his name has surfaced several times in the run-up to nomination day.
NONEMahathir appeared amused with the situation, but stressed that he has no interest in being involved in the campaign, which will see his harsh critic Zaid Ibrahim from PKR taking on P Kamalanathan representing Barisan Nasional.
“I am not going to campaign. If people want to use my name to campaign, that is their problem… I don’t care,” he told reporters after delivering a keynote address at the Mara’s 44th anniversary convention in Kuala Lumpur.
