KUALA LUMPUR: The uncertainty surrounding his candidacy in the 15th General Election (GE15) is among the "concerns" bothering Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.

In a light moment during a press conference, the Health Minister was asked what were the "concerns" besides flood issues that were discussed in last Wednesday's Cabinet meeting regarding GE15.

"Concerns? I still have no seat to contest in," Khairy replied, triggering an eruption of laughter at the press conference that was held after he launched the Asia Dermatology & Aesthetic Medicine Summit (ADAMS) 2022 here.

The presser ended without Khairy addressing the question further.
