THE fight for the Kuala Kubu Baru state seat in the 13th general election (GE 13) is likely to be a ladies affair.

Beliawanis Selangor MCA chief Jessie Ooi, who was formerly the Selayang parliamentary coordinator, is set to contest against Lee Kee Hiong, the former aide to DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang.

Incumbent Kuala Kubu Baru assemblyman Wong Koon Mun will not be defending the seat as he wants to focus on his business.

In the 2008 general election, Wong beat DAP’s K.A. Ramu with a 448-vote majority.

Ooi, 34, a mother of three, has also got a lot of support from the Selangor MCA Youth in spearheading many community projects, organising social activities like bowling and get-togethers.

Ooi has been helping her father Johnson Ooi, who is the Selayang Jaya MCA complaints bureau chief, since she was 10.

She joined MCA when she was 21 and continued to do social work while helping her father.

“If I am given a seat here, I will do my level best to serve the people of Kuala Kubu Baru. If I am elected, I will look into solving issues like transportation, social ills and lack of business opportunities for locals,” she said.

Lee, 48, who is from Muar, Johor, has been stationed in Kuala Kubu Baru for the last two months to address residents’ issues.

Lee has been in politics for more than two decades. She made a name for herself by spearheading the fight against a developer in Kajang and winning the court case.

Lee realised she wanted to do something for society while at Universiti Putra Malaysia.

After a brief stint as a journalist with a Chinese daily, she joined DAP in 1993 and became special assistant to party chief Lim Kit Siang.

She is married to an information technology consultant.
