Former Selangor MB prefers to see the glass as half full - The Star

April 19, 2008 by Loong Meng Yee

THE first few days after Selangor fell to the opposition, former Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo seemed as if he disappeared from the political radar.

After the brief sojourn of silence, Dr Khir once again grabbed the spotlight by attending a controversial forum together with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Then, he announced his readiness to contest the Umno Youth top post.

In the meantime, he has had to fend off insinuations from the new state government which has been trying to dig up scandals during his eight-year leadership.

Dr Khir said he would take the challenges. He added: “It is not my style to run away.”
