Penang is known as the pearl of the orient, often praised as the exemplary state driven by meritocracy rather than nepotism. But it seems like Lim Guan Eng’s honeymoon period is over.

The past few weeks have seen his weaknesses highlighted again and again on various issues. From political relations to disregarding the livelihood of Penangites. People are no longer gushing over Penang’s competent, accountable and transparent (CAT) administration under Lim Guan Eng.

Penang Umno motion - PKR reps' conscience, or planned revolt?

Date of Release: 
Nov 22 2015

Umno assemblyperson for Pulau Betong Muhamad Farid Saad’s motion against land reclamation in the Penang state assembly on November 20, 2015, shamelessly ignored the previous Penang BN government’s abysmal track record of parcelling out 3,241 acres of land reclamation in contrast to the 60 acres of land reclamation approved by the present state government.

Farid’s motion against land reclamation is absurd as it would include land reclamation approvals by the previous BN state government, which Farid as a member of the previous administration had fully supported it.
