(Malaysiakini) Negri Sembilan's Rembau parliament seat will see a battle between two 30-something aspiring politicians - Khairy Jamaluddin, 32, and Badrul Hisham Shaharin, 30.

Khairy, who is Umno Youth deputy chief and son-in-law of Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, will be pitted against Badrul Hisham, a former teacher and PKR's youngest supreme council member.

Khairy is among 12 Umno new faces to be fielded by the ruling Negri Sembilan BN for the March 8 general elections.

He will replace incumbent Firdaus Haron.

Four state executive councillors have been dropped from the BN line-up, including Norhayati Omar.

Also dropped is Puteri Umno assistant secretary Bibi Sherliza Mohd Khalid, who will not be defending her state seat of Paroi.

Those who have been retained to defend their parliament seats include Dr Rais Yatim (Jelebu) and S Sothinathan (Teluk Kemang).
