KEMAMAN - Terengganu Umno chairma Datuk Seri Ahmad Said has denied claims made by certain parties alleging that Barisan Nasional (BN) was part of a conspiracy to oust a Perikatan Nasional (PN) candidate from Pas.

Ahmad said the allegation holds no merit as the woman claiming to be the candidate's second wife had visited him a few weeks ago at his office to discuss her personal issues.

"Actually, there is no conspiracy, no plot. I'd like to clarify that the candidate's ex-wife came to see me here at my office to talk about her problems and so on.

"I listened to what she said and told her, "It's up to you. I don't want to get involved because it's a personal problem," he said during a press conference here today.

"That's why I had never exposed people's shame because I know what the consequences are. I said, "It's up to you. You deal with it..." But (if) it's other things, it's fine. If it involves people's dignity, I don't want to interfere," he said,

He further said that he had not reveal this matter during any of his ceramah as he understood the implications of revealing sensitive information.

"She came to see me alone, but I don't want to spill it off to people. If I wanted to reveal it in my ceramah, I could have told what this woman told me and so on.

"But, when the MB (Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar) commented (on this issue) saying that it is a small matter, this is not small because it involves a marriage. If he had already found out from the beginning, then why did he nominate him anyway? We had a screening, didn't we?

"Just like the land case (government land sale issue) which he also said is a small issue. What kind of small issue is that if the election is already around the corner? This involves the people's money, it is no small issue," Ahmad argued.

Ahmad, however, said that the issue related to the alleged project involving the Pas candidate caught his attention.

He said that the issue involving the affidavit by the woman in question signed by a BN candidate and associated with a malicious intent is also a form of baseless accusation.

"The woman's affidavit was signed by a BN candidate, but at that time, she was still serving as an oath commissioner and was not yet valid as a candidate," he said.

Last Saturday, a female contractor came forward to make a confession claiming that she was left without any justification by her husband who is a candidate of a political party in Terengganu election.

The 38-year old woman revealed that she still does not know the status of her relationship with the political leader after the man kept silence and tried to avoid the issue.

The woman claimed that the politician in his late 40s kept quiet after their wedding in a neighbouring country became known to the man's first wife in October last year.
