PENANG: Jelutong MP Lee Kah Choon does not feel threatened if Karpal Singh contests in his constituency in the general election.
Lee said it was the people who will ultimately decide whom they wanted to represent them.
I have done my best to serve the electorate and hope they will give me another chance to serve them, the Barisan MP told newsmen yesterday after presenting RM50 vouchers to 148 pupils in his constituency who scored As in all papers during the past UPSR examination.
Lee was asked to comment on a statement by state DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow that the party's national chairman, Lim Kit Siang, and deputy chairman Karpal Singh might contest in parliamentary constituencies here in the next general election.
Chow had said that the party was considering whether Lim should re-contest in Bukit Bendera and Karpal Singh in Jelutong, where they lost in the last election.
In the 1999 general election, Lee, then a first-timer, caused a major upset in unseating Karpal Singh by a 775-vote majority, grabbing 21,491 votes.
