How Many Faces Does Zainuddin Maidin Have?
He said that in an election, it was normal for a political leader, who has confidence in himself, loyal to the party leader and committed to the rakyat to shift to another constituency.
"I only have one face, but there are others who have various faces and this is confusing, today he is an ulamak, the next day he becomes a singer and dancer and at times he also has the face of a demonstrator.
"I was well accepted in the Merbuk parliamentary seat and now feels the vast acceptance of the Sungai Petani residents and voters. I am confident they will vote for me in the March 8 general election," he told reporters here today.
He was commenting on a statement by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who said during his campaign in Taman Keladi, here on Monday, that Zainuddin was contesting the Sungai Petani seat because he was chased out of Merbuk. Zainuddin was previously the member of parliament for Merbuk.
Zainuddin also said that the admittance by Datin Seri Wan Azizah Ismail that she would give up her seat to Anwar if she won the election showed that she was not oriented to serve the rakyat.
He said that the statement clearly indicated that she was contesting in the interest of her husband and her family and not to serve the rakyat.
"The rakyat should choose a candidate who is contesting in order to serve (them) as well as place their interest above all else, not a person who merely considers the interest of her family," he added.
Wan Azizah, the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president, is contesting in the Permatang Pauh parliamentary seat which was once held by Anwar, the PKR defacto leader. (Bernama)
***** As far as I can gather Zam was eased out of Merbok, but here he seems to spin a different tale and attempts to confuse the issue by mentioning 'faces'. Whether he has multiple faces or for that matter multiple personalities, it is for us to decide and not for him to go around claiming.
