MPs weigh in on next KL mayor

If I had to choose between Bakaruddin and Ahmad Fuad, then my choice would be Bakaruddin. Based on public perception, and community feedback I hear that he is a no nonsense man. That is the type of mayor Kuala Lumpur needs. Strict and sharp and is able to run the city without fear or favour. – Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng

It does not matter who gets picked. We need a mayor who is professional, pro-active and people orientated. I would like to see these qualities in our next mayor. – Bandar Tun Razak MP Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim

KL needs a magnanimous leader – a people mayor. Whomever that is picked must be able to understand and respect the people’s needs. – Cheras MP Tan Kok Wai

I don’t know any of them hence I will not comment on that. But what I will say is that Kuala Lumpur needs a strong mayor who is mesra rakyat (people friendly), who has the administrative knowledge to run the city and be able to showcase Kuala Lumpur to the world. Bukit Bintang MP Fong Kui Lun

The mayor must be a man with a vision and have a cordial relationship with the people and the wakil rakyat. But most of all he must have the zeal to run a city like Kuala Lumpur. – Seputeh MP Teresa Kok

It does not matter who gets picked. What’s important is that we want to have a voice at the DBKL – to be represented on the City Hall Advisory Board. We are answerable and accountable to the people and we need a mayor who is willing to hear us out. Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar

I don’t want to make a choice here. It’s is not about personality. The person who ultimately becomes the mayor must be dynamic and can provide a direction to the development of Kuala Lumpur. We need someone who is willing to accommodate the views of everyone. The city’s past mayors have always been reluctant to talk to the opposition. Now with 10 out 11 seats in Kuala Lumpur under the opposition – the mayor must be able to deal with that. Batu MP Tian Chua

Kuala Lumpur needs an elected mayor. The mayor represents the people and he should be working for the people. Without an elected mayor, nothing will change. The gist of the city’s problems all boil down to the fact that the Datuk Bandar is not elected. Wangsa Maju MP Wee Choo Keong
