Bogus PAS member is an Umno man


(FMT) – An online blog ‘The Cybersniper’ has exposed an Umno man disguised as a PAS member to contest in the Bukit Gelugor by-election this month.

According to the blog, Mohamed Nabi Bux Mohd Nabi Sathar, 63, a businessman who claims to be a PAS ordinary member from Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur had expressed his intention to contest as an independent candidate.

However, the blog exposed a print-screen shot that proved Mohamed Nabi as an Umno member from the Gombak division.

As reported in the blog, Mohamed Nabi said that he wants to promote Islamic and hudud teachings which he hoped would be implemented in the year 2020. He urged Muslim voters in Penang to support him.

Penang PAS leader Iszuree Ibrahim was shocked with Mohamed Nabi’s intention to contest as the party will be throwing its full support and campaign efforts for DAP in Bukit Gelugor.

When FMT contacted PAS Information chief Mahfuz Omar to clarify the matter, he confirmed that Mohamed Nabi is an Umno member and not a PAS member.

The nomination day for Bukit Gelugor is set for Monday and the polls will be on May 25.

The Bukit Gelugor state seat fell vacant when incumbent parliamentarian Karpal Singh of DAP died on April 17 in a car accident near Kampar, Perak.

Karpal won by a majority of 41,778 votes against Barisan Nasional candidate Teh Beng Yeam in the 2013 general election.
