Malaysia’s 13th General Election


'Tok Mun' makes second bid for KT seat

KUALA TERENGGANU -- Nonagenarian Maimun Yusof, 94, is making a second attempt to romp home the Kuala Terengganu parliamentary seat in this election.

Fondly known as "Tok Mun", she is facing Barisan Nasional's (BN) aspirant Mohd Zubir Embong and well-known achitect Datuk Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad of PAS.    

Wearing a brown traditional "baju kurung", she arrived at the State Stadium at 7am in a rented vehicle, accompanied by her adopted grand daughter NurHaslinda Mustafa, 31, and her neighbour, Timah Salleh, as her proposer and seconder.  

She has chosen the "key" as her symbol for the May 5 general election.

"I picked the symbol so that the voters' "locked" hearts would be opened to vote for me to win," she said, adding that she used her savings and income from selling clothing material and crackers to pay the RM10,000 deposit for the seat.  -- Bernama
