I'm not a gambler. But I have made "playful" bets with my buddies on very harmless things.
We used to take bets on how long someone will last as -- oh you know, such and such, this and that.
Very harmless. Didn't hurt anyone.
Now, this one is a no-brainer. Because if a bet were to be made, everyone wins.
The Prime Minister, according to Bernama is still silent on the proposal by Negeri Sembilan Umno to nominate his son-in-law Khairy Jamaluddin as a BN candidate.
Khairy is Umno Youth deputy head.
Abdullah, who is also the BN chairman, said the position of all BN candidates would only be decided after a meeting with all the state BN chairmen.
"I have yet to sit down with the state BN chairmen to discuss the list of candidates for the general election," he told reporters after launching the project to upgrade roads under the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER), here Saturday.
Abdullah said the list of BN candidates would be announced at the appropriate time.
Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan recently said that Khairy was one of the five candidates agreed upon at the recent meeting of the Rembau Umno division to contest in the parliamentary constituency.
Mohamad said the selection of Khairy, who is also the Rembau Umno Youth head and the Prime Minister's son-in-law, was in recognition of his role as the Umno Youth deputy head.-- BERNAMA
