Nga refuted ‘proxy’ claim

In his maiden appearance on the Kuala Kubu Baharu election campaign trail Housing and Local Government Minister Nga Kor Ming refuted claims that the DAP candidate Pang Sock Tao is a proxy.

“Pang is a young, professional, and capable politician; she is not anyone’s proxy. She is truly the best spokesperson for Kuala Kubu Baharu,” said Nga yesterday at a Chinese community dinner in Batang Kali.

Pang was Nga’s press secretary.

The allegation was started by Taman Medan state legislator Dr Afif Bahardin. He claimed Pang was a proxy of Nga.

The allegation has also been dismissed by DAP national publicity secretary, Teo Nie Ching and Pang herself.

Pang is involved in a four cornered fight over the semi urban mixed constituency of Kuala Kubu Baharu.

Her opponents are Perikatan Nasional’s Khairul Azhari Saut, PRM’s Hafizah Zainuddin and Independent Nyau Ke Xin.

The by-election is set to take place on May 11.
