KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian People's Progressive Party (MyPPP) president Tan Sri M Kayveas has rejected the Barisan Nasional (BN) offer to become a candidate in Segambut in the 14th General Election (GE14).

In annoucing the matter in his Instagram social networking site, Kayveas today said BN was supposed to make the offer four years ago.

"To all the supporters (especially those who are looking forward to the answer with hope), I must regretfully inform that I was asked to consider moving to Segambut, and my answer is no.

"BN was supposed to make me the offer four years ago. With your unflagging support and trust in me, I would definitely have worked there as well as I would have done in Cameron Highland," he said.


Commenting further, Kayveas said, although the decision surprised its supporters, he would still provide the best service especially in the Cameron Highlands area. (File pix)

"All this while I have worked tirelessly despite having no seat and I will continue to travel with you whether I have a seat or not. That's my promise, because politics is just a platform and I can still contribute to our beloved country and its people without politics.

"You do not have to worry. You will never lose the battle unless you give up. The truth is that we are still winners because we use our own machinery and money and we will continue that way," he said. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
