Blogger For Public Office - Tony Pua
I don't need to say much for Tony Pua who is the candidate standing for elections under DAP for PJ Utara.
He is a prominent blogger and honestly, few people have not heard of him.
A graduate of Keble College of Oxford, he is well versed in philosophy, politics and economy. Heck, he even started up his own company which he sold for a tidy profit before making the foray into politics.
He joined the Democratic Action Party (DAP) as the Economic Advisor to the DAP Secretary-General
This dude is versatile - his knowledge of the economy is as strong as his oratorial skills.
He once agreed to take on fellow Oxfordian Khairy Jamaluddin on a debate, but the latter predictably declined.
More recently, he was willing to take on current incumbent for PJ Utara, Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun.
Unfortunately, Chew declined - for obvious reasons, her party does not have what it takes to deserve the vote. In fact, she has even stooped to fear-mongering by bringing up ethnic riots of the past.
I guess if I had an opponent in the form of Tony Pua, I would be desperate too.
