The former Negeri Sembilan mentri besar is being proposed by the Teluk Kemang Umno division to stand as candidate for the Bangan Pinang by-election coming up. Isa was suspended for 3 years by Umno for vote buying in 2004. Isa dismissed the suggestion that he would be a liability to Barisan Nasional if he is fielded in the Bagan Pinang by-election.
“In the opposition, even a former prisoner could contest,” Isa told a press conference in an apparent reference to Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who was imprisoned for six years.
“I’m not a criminal,” he added.
NO, NO......Tan Sri! You got us all wrong.
We don't mean to put you in the same low class as that dis-barred lawyer up north. The fler was so stupid and tried to hide his sacking by the Bar Council. You are different, Tan Sri. You were not dis-barred nor were you imprisoned. You were just suspended what. Suspension only, right?
We don't mean for you NOT to contest in the by-election in Bagan Pinang. We WANT you to contest against whoever the other flers put up to run against you.
Go for it, Tan Sri. Show the baargers!!! Yes! If THEY can field a former prisoner for an election YOU can jolly well stand for this one too. YEAH!!!
Go for it, Tan Sri!
