Tracking The Election Campaign Trail 3

I am ready to make a comeback, says Rahim

MALACCA: Umno supreme council member and former Malacca chief minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik is prepared to make a comeback and contest in the general election should the party decide to field him.

Remember him? Tan Sri was allegedly involved in a sex scandal along with fourteen other men with an under-aged girl in 1994. While the fourteen men were charged on the basis of the girl's police report, Tan Sri was not charged as there was no police report made against him although the girl had admitted to having sexual relations with him.

Whether he will be nominated by UMNO to stand in the coming election remains to be seen.

The Works Minister, Samy Vellu, seems to be fighting a battle on his home front. Indications are that he is struggling to regain the confidence of his community.

Angry Hindraf supporters mob Samy

BUTTERWORTH: MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu was prevented by a group of people from leaving a function here.

The group, believed to be Hindu Rights Action Force supporters, surrounded his car last night and demanded for an undertaking for the release of women and children who were detained during a Hindraf rally in Kuala Lumpur yesterday morning.

The Community Development Minister lost no time in reminding Malaysians that they should be grateful to the government for the various subsidies given.
