KUALA LUMPUR : Former Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Mohd Zaid Ibrahim is set to make a comeback in the political arena.
Today he announced that he intended to contest in the upcoming Kajang by-election.
Mohd Zaid, in his latest blog posting, said that contesting the seat would enable him to address numerous political and economic issues the country is currently facing.
"Writing in my blog (www.zaid.my) is fun but it would also be good to talk to real people face-to-face, listen to what they have to say and, of course, have satay with them.
"Talking to Kajang voters would also test the acceptability of some of my ideas, which in turn could be useful feedback for our policy-makers," he said in his blog entry entitled 'Mulling for Kajang' which was published today.
Mohd Zaid said he had already outlined a few points that he would voice up during the campaigning period which were, among others, the importance of battling the roots of racial polarisation, the effort to preserve peace and solidarity between Muslims and Non-Muslims, as well as
economic and educational programmes on building skills.--Bernama
