Lau vs Lau for Sibu MP by-election

New-face Alice Lau would probably be picked by DAP to challenge Robert Lau Hui Yew from BN SUPP in the coming Sibu MP by-election.

The by-election is necessitated by the untimely demise of incumbent Datuk Robert Lau Hoi Chew, who was Deputy Transport Minister when he died of cancer on April 9 in Kuala Lumpur.

Talk of the street had it that Hui Yew was the person the late Lau had wanted to be his successor, especially in the later days when Lau realised it was hard for him to pull through.

But will the two Laus meet head-on in the coming battlefield? Most observers believe they will not.
