Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng quickly ended a press conference on Saturday when reporters persisted asking him about PAS secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali’s challenge to debate the issue of local council elections.
The press conference was held after Lim launched the Penang Science Cafe here.
Reporters had asked Lim several times for his response to the challenge by Mustafa, with the Penang Chief Minister repeating: “Is there any other question?”
When reporters persisted, Lim ended the press conference with a “thank you”. Subsequently, he spoke on other matters, among them the impact of the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
Mustafa had, on Wednesday, ticked off Lim for having allegedly saying that he (Mustafa) was for local government elections when it was not the case. The PAS leader had then challenged Lim to debate the issue.
Last week, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang had said that local government elections could lead to a widening of the economic gap between the haves and have-nots and might trigger a repeat of the May 13 racial clash of 1969.
