HULU SELANGOR, April 17 — The Barisan Nasional (BN) has no problem facing the four-cornered tussle for the Hulu Selangor parliamentary by-election, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said.
What was important, he said, was that the BN’s candidate, P. Kamalanathan, had the advantage over the three others.
“It’s no difference whether the contest is a straight fight, three-cornered or four-cornered.
“It’s okay for us; we don’t care much about the number of candidates,” he told reporters after the nomination process at the Hulu Selangor Sports Complex multipurpose hall in Kuala Kubu Baru here today.
The by-election on April 25 will see a four-way tussle involving Kamalanathan, who is MIC information chief, Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s (PKR) Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, who is a former minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, and independents V.S. Chandran, a former Hulu Selangor MIC deputy chief, and Johan Mohd Diah, a businessman. — Bernama
