Teluk Intan by-election: BN's Mah targets Unesco status for 'Leaning Tower' to boost tourism.

Gerakan president and Barisan Nasional's Teluk Intan by-election candidate Datuk Mah Siew Keong is hoping to get the century-year-old "Leaning Tower" listed as a Unesco heritage site.

Mah said the status would benefit the folk here by bringing in more tourists to boost the economy.
"I will try my best to get the leaning tower listed if I am voted as the MP.

"It will be a challenge and will take a long time," he said during the launching of his manifesto here Monday for the May 31 parliamentary by-election.

"We (Gerakan) have the experience to do it as we have done it for Penang," he added.

The tower, built in the late 19th century, has been likened to the famed Leaning Tower of Pisa.
The Teluk Intan by-election was called following the death of the incumbent MP Seah Leong Peng (DAP), 48, from cancer on May 1.

In the last general election, Seah defeated Mah and Independent candidate Moralingam Kannan by a majority of 7,313 votes.
