I will abide by party’s de­ci­sion, says Ra­jiv

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PETALING JAYA: In­cum­bent Bukit Gas­ing as­sem­bly­man R. Ra­jiv will not con­test as an in­de­pen­dent if he is not nom­i­nated by DAP.

The first-term as­sem­bly­man said he is a party man and will re­spect and sup­port what­ever de­ci­sion the party makes about his state seat.

“For now, it is still un­known whether I will be de­fend­ing my seat or the party will be field­ing some­one else,” Ra­jiv said at a press con­fer­ence af­ter a brief walkabout in Jalan 17/10.

Ra­jiv rub­bished claims that Petaling Jaya city coun­cil­lor Ter­ence Tan will be con­test­ing for the Bukit Gas­ing seat.

“I know Tan very well and he has spo­ken to me. He says he has got no in­ten­tion of con­test­ing in the polls. So the claims are un­founded.”

On the walkabout, Ra­jiv said it was meant to cre­ate aware­ness about the com­mon logo.
