PENANG, 22 April 2009: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng considers the problem between him and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as having been resolved following the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor’s apology.
Lim today confirmed that Anwar had apologised to him for failing to inform him of the resignation of former Deputy Chief Minister I, Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin, as the state assemblyperson for Penanti.
“I don’t want the matter to prolong,” he told reporters, here today.
Earlier, Lim, who is also DAP secretary-general, had expressed unhappiness that Anwar had not informed him of Mohammad Fairus’s resignation as a state assemblyperson.
Following Lim’s outburst, PKR deputy president Dr Syed Husin Ali released a press statement, asking Lim to keep mum to the press on the issue.
Mohammad Fairus, who resigned as Deputy Chief Minister I effective 8 April, later resigned from the state assembly on 16 April. — Bernama
