KUALA LUMPUR: MIC has submitted its list of candidates for the 14th general election to Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Its president Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam said it was up to the Prime Minister to study and submit the names of candidates to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for screening.
“It’s up to the Prime Minister to decide whether to forward the names to the MACC,” he said after officiating the National Gynae-Oncology Conference yesterday.
On another matter, Dr Subramaniam, who is also Health Minister, hoped that more women would come forward to take the Pap smear examination, a screening procedure for cervical cancer.
He added that the types of cancer under the gynaecological group such as cervical, ovarian and uterine cancers were the second most risky to women after breast cancer.
In another development, Dr Subramaniam said he had yet to receive any report in connection with the deaths of two Royal Malaysia Navy (RMN) personnel at the Sungai Wangi Unit detention room near Sitiawan on Friday.
However, he said the Health director-general would issue a statement when the complete report was obtained.
Police have classified the deaths of Able Seaman Muhammad Baihaqy Nik Mat, 28, and Able Seaman Muhammad Lailatuliman Mohd Sukri, 26, as murder based on the post-mortem reports from the Pathology Department of the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital in Ipoh, Perak. — Bernama
