Obama's sister to help in for re-election campaign

Kuala Lumpur , Sun, 10 Jun 2012 ANI

Kuala Lumpur, June 10 (ANI): President Barack Obama's sister will be campaigning for her brother to win his re-election bid, as she did in 2008.

Dr. Maya Soetoro-Ng, an education specialist, will be giving press interviewers and calling out voters during the campaigning.

"I will endeavour to share stories of his accomplishments with as many people as possible. I will resume my work at the University of Hawaii and East-West Centre in the fall," The Star quoted Maya Soetoro-Ng as saying.

Dr Soetoro-Ng has often spoken fondly about her relationship with her older half-brother who she says has remained a strong figure in her life even though they have often lived far apart.

Describing him as her "big brother", Dr Soetoro-Ng was confident of his re-election prospects.

"He is an incredible man and politician because he takes a practical view of things. He understands it is very challenging to make everyone happy. He knows he has done his absolute best in moving forward," she said.

Dr Soetoro-Ng and Obama have different fathers and the same mother Stanley Ann Dunham.

Dr Soetoro-Ng, who is nine years younger than Obama, is an advocate for peace and multi-cultural education.

Dr Soetoro-Ng will be in Malaysia until tomorrow as part of the US' East-West Centre delegation. (ANI)
