GE15: Bukit Bintang incumbent tests positive for Covid-19, isolating at home

BUKIT Bintang incumbent Fong Kui Lun has been tested positive for Covid-19 and is self-isolating at home.

The 76-year-old was not feeling well on nomination day for the 15 General Election (GE15) on Nov 5 last week and was confirmed to be positive after checking with his doctor.

In a statement, Fong assured his electorate that his team has been working on the ground non-stop to ensure that the campaign was not affected.

“I have contacted everyone whom I have been in close contact with and have advised them to get tested.

“In the meantime, I will be keeping tabs on social media platforms to ensure the smooth running of campaign programmes,’’ he added.

“I hope to meet everyone after my quarantine is over and I hope everyone will come out on Nov 19 to vote,’’ he said.

Fong is expected to hit the campaign trail by Friday (Nov 11).

It’s going to be a three-way fight with incumbent Fong (Pakatan Harapan-DAP), Tan Teik Peng (Barisan Nasional-MCA) and Edwin Chen (Perikatan Nasional-Bersatu) for Bukit Bintang for GE15.

The urban seat has been a DAP stronghold for several general elections, with Fong serving as MP there since 1999.
