Khairy : Don't Sulk If Not Nominated As Candidates

KOTA BAHARU, Feb 21 (Bernama) -- Umno leaders in Kelantan should not sulk if they have been dropped as candidates for the March 8 general election, Umno Youth deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin said today.

Instead, he said, they should soldier on to help the Barisan Nasional (BN) recapture the state from PAS.

"There is a tendency for some people to sulk when they are not nominated and this is when the "chah keting" (a Kelantanese phrase which means killing the political career of another person, usually from the same party) happens.

"This has happened in Kelantan before and if it happens again, it will render our efforts to wrest Kelantan difficult," he told reporters after opening the Kota Baharu Umno Youth operations room.

On Umno candidates in Kelantan, Khairy, who is tipped to contest in the Rembau parliamentary seat, said some Umno Youth members were in the list.

He thanked State Umno liaison chief Datuk Seri Annuar Musa for his confidence in the movement.
