Perak MCA: Ipoh mayor should be apolitical - The Star

IPOH: JUn 15, 2008

The person chosen to be the new Datuk Bandar for Ipoh should be apolitical, said Perak MCA organising secretary Dr Mah Hang Soon.

He said it would be a conflict of interest if a politician was appointed to helm the council.

“If a politician is selected, will the politician be able to serve the people’s interest or will the politician’s party come first,” he said yesterday.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin was recently quoted as saying that six candidates had been shortlisted for the post.

On the speculation that Ipoh Barat MP M. Kulasegaran was one of the nominees, Dr Mah, who is also Chenderiang assemblyman, asked whether Perak had run out of candidates for the Datuk Bandar post.
