GEORGE TOWN: Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has been challenged to show his sincerity by announcing that he will relinquish his position after the next general election in view of the proposed two-term limit for the post of chief minister.
Parti Rakyat Malaysia's (PRM) election campaign chairman Chew Seng Tung (pix) told a press conference that it was necessary for Lim to make the major announcement.
He said this would give people a better idea of Lim's intentions, as he had helmed the position for two terms since the Opposition took over the state administration in 2008.
He also dismissed Pakatan Harapan's (PH) proposal that such a ruling would only come into effect after the 14th general election, adding that previous tenures for all positions should be taken into account as well.
Lim said on Wednesday that the term-limit proposal would be included in the pact's general election manifesto.
Chew also questioned if Lim was truly agreeable with the proposal or if he was merely following PH's strategy to win the elections.
He also questioned if Lim would hold the position if PH wins Penang and not the federal government, adding that he should implement the proposal now.
"All these must be made clear, " Chew stressed.
