GEORGETOWN: PKR appears to have no say in the governance of DAP-led Penang, state Gerakan Deputy Chairman Oh Tong Keong claimed today.
He said this was made obvious during the recent state assembly sitting.
"On Tuesday, May 23, in the afternoon session, no state excos were present, despite calls by speaker Datuk Law Choo Kiang to get exco members in the hall," Oh said.
However, on May 25, when Chief Minister (and DAP secretary-general) Lim Guan Eng was scheduled to speak on loans to an overseas bank, the state assembly hall was full, Oh pointed out.
It is learnt that on May 23, Penang’s exco members were attending the Penang Water Supply Corporation’s annual general meeting.
"Which is their priority? The state and people, or an annual general meeting chaired by the Chief Minister?" Oh said.
He added that if PKR members in the state are afraid to voice out their marginalisation by the DAP, Gerakan will voice it out for them.
