GEORGE TOWN: The DAP candidate for Bukit Gelugor Ramkarpal Singh has declared himself an eligible bachelor and laughed off allegations that he is gay.
The young lawyer said: “It’s not a crime to be unmarried at 38.”
During a walkabout in Island Glades earlier, Parti Cinta Malaysia candidate Datuk Huan Cheng Guan told reporters he was curious over photographs of muscular men on Ramkarpal’s Facebook profile page.
Huan asked reporters whether they felt something was wrong with Ramkarpal being unmarried at his age.
Responding to his rival’s remarks, Ramkarpal said it was unnecessary for Huan “to say something like that”.
“This is a serious by-election campaign as far as I’m concerned. It is unfortunate that Huan is turning this democratic process into a farce,” he told reporters at his operations centre in Jalan Masjid Negeri here yesterday.
The third son of the late DAP stalwart Karpal Singh added: “For the record, I’m not gay.”
“I think maybe he (Huan) secretly likes me,” Ramkarpal quipped.
Independents Mohamed Nabi Bux and Abu Backer Sidek Mohammad Zan are in the fray with Ramkarpal and Huan in the Bukit Gelugor by-election on May 25.
